Comparative Avian Cognition : Physical and Social Problem Solving in Corvids and Parrots
Within the last few decades, investigations of problem solving in avian species such as corvids have challenged the few that complex cognitive abilities are unique to the primate lineage, and provide
Humans, robots and values
Abstract From the 1950s onwards the threat automation posed to human labour became a persistent theme in popular science fiction [26] , [1] . Authors explored what it meant to be human, by
Development of tool-use behavior in a social context
The habitual use of tools by wild capuchin monkeys presents a unique opportunity to study the maintenance and transmission of tradition. Here we study the development of tool-use in wild bearded
Building Babies
This work focuses on the ontogeny of investigating primate ontogenY, which involves identifying proximate and ultimate causation in the development of primate sex-typed social behavior and life history frameworks for understanding primate positional patterns.

The chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) is well-known in both nature and captivity as an impressive maker and user of tools, but recently the New Caledonian crow (Corvus moneduloides) has been championed as
The Method of Local Restriction: in search of potential great ape culture‐dependent forms
The results show that overall, ape cultures do not rely heavily on copying, as most ape behaviours appear across sites and/or species, rendering them unlikely to be culture-dependent forms resulting from cumulative cultural evolution.
Tool-Use by Great Apes in the Wild
Evidence for tool use and tool-making by great apes in the wild is contrasted against the earliest stone artifacts and signs of their use before 2 million years ago by hominins who had attained a
Discovery of species-wide tool use in the Hawaiian crow
It is shown that another tropical corvid, the ‘Alalā (C. hawaiiensis; Hawaiian crow), is a highly dexterous tool user, supporting the idea that avian foraging tool use is facilitated by ecological conditions typical of islands, such as reduced competition for embedded prey and low predation risk.
Environmental Enrichment bei drei Menschenaffen-Arten im Zoo Krefeld - eine Untersuchung etablierter Methoden zur Tierbeschäftigung
