Friends of the Library Fall Lecture

Lecture/Readings

The Science of Animal Personality
You know your dog has a personality different than other dogs. You know a cat could have a personality too. Everyone expects primates, so similar to humans, to display distinct, measurable differences in temperament. But what about less familiar species from dolphins to bluebirds to crabs to spiders, flies, and even single-celled organisms? More importantly: Why? Why is personality so pervasive in the animal world? Shivik surveys research on a broad range of species and examines the importance of individual personalities to humans and evolution.
Join us for the Friends of the Library Fall Lecture presented by John Shivik.
