Description

Many other mechanisms and behaviours will be unfamiliar even to most biologists and Barrie mines the primary literature for some delightful examples.

We chose this book for a Literary Leaf as we loved that it had been written by an actual expert in the field of exploring! A book about animal navigation – how creatures, great and small, find their way and how brilliantly they manage without benefit of maps or instruments – and what lessons there are for human beings. Along the way, Levison Wood shares his own insights into adventuring, telling you what it’s REALLY like to follow in the footsteps of Alexander the Great.We use Google Analytics to see what pages are most visited, and where in the world visitors are visiting from. Some topics are covered more superficially than others, and I would have liked to have read more about the actual biological basis of these animals wayfinding ability, but none-the-less, a fascinating book. Barrie mines the primary literature for delightful examples [of navigation] to the point that if some of these do not leave you in awe, you need to check you still have a pulse.

Landmarks are of course other common features to use, though few people can match the perceptiveness of Inuit navigating the barren snowy landscapes of the Arctic. Take a deep-dive into the American South, immersing yourself in the humming sounds of jazz, blues and rock n’ roll. Two black bear cubs discover Bodger, but he does not respond to their play, so they decide to wrestle each other.Oakes is coming the next day, so he leaves her a note, including how he plans to let the three animals staying with him - Tao the Siamese Cat, Luath the Yellow Labrador, and Bodger the elderly English Bull Terrier - out for a morning run.
