Speaker Offers Insight on Inner World of Animals

February 19th, 2013

Virginia Morell, author of the new book, “Animal Wise,” will give insights into the inner world of animals during a talk at Oregon State University on Thursday, March 7, 2013.

The free, public event begins at 7 p.m. in the Construction & Engineering Hall of the LaSells Stewart Center on the OSU campus.

Covering a range of topics, ranging from how earthworms make decisions to how birds practice songs in their sleep, Morell will take audience members on an exploration into the hearts and minds of wild and domesticated animals.

Morell’s is the first book of its kind to look at a range of animals – from the smallest insects to the largest mammals – and to ask the question: How has evolution selected for the expression of intelligence and emotion?
