The Library

Welcome to my somewhat chaotic library of useful but unsorted information. I am moving this information here as my group "Animal Cognition and Welfare Research" on this forum was proving unsuccessful in gaining readership. This library is primarily intended to be a source of cross reference information when composing arguments about animal cognition, preferences, and to improve overall knowledge of how animals perceive things differently.
This is sort of a living work desk where people can find sources to compose their ethical frameworks of animal cognition based on solid research.​

Its really great to see these types of resources on this forum. Its a bit of a refreshing change from the typical horny posting you find in 99% of other parts of the forum.

I've made it through a few of these so far, especially how equines can use symbols and their long term memory capabilities. Thanks for sharing, really interesting.
