In the Series

  • Animals and Ethics edited by Marc Bekoff

    Building on the idea that human and non-human animals share a common environment, the Animals and Ethics ​series edited by Marc Bekoff, will produce a wide range of books that explain animal behavior, show how humans' decisions and dispersal around the planet affect animals'​ ​interests and experience, and propose practical solutions to the ethical problems that arise from human effects on our world. The books will be rooted in the natural and social sciences, but the authors—mostly scientists, social scientists and philosophers—will write for a broad audience, including children.
