Carol Grant Gould and James L. Gould | Nature’s Compass: The Mystery of Animal Navigation

Tue, July 10, 2012 7:30 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

Cost: FREE

In Nature’s Compass, Carol Grant Gould and James L. Gould explore elegant navigation strategies used by familiar and rare species—from the fragile monarch butterfly to the honey bee to the homing pigeon—and demonstrate how an understanding of navigation is critical for conservation. James L. Gould is Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University and a distinguished expert in animal behavior. Carol Grant Gould is a science writer and author of the biography, The Remarkable Life of William Beebe: Explorer and Naturalist. Together, the Goulds have written nine previous books, including The Animal Mind and Animal Architects.
