Getting closer

Kobs usually have a lek mating system, in which males defend small territories clustered on traditional mating grounds. Females visit these leks only to breed, and males provide no parental care. This mating system may have evolved because males cannot defend the widely-dispersed food resources or the dynamic and temporary female herds. Within a lek, 20 to 200 males defend territories 15 to 200 meters in diameter. Male territories are smallest and most highly-contested in the centre of the lek, where most mating... [Lire la suite]

Blink

Blink, The Power of Thinking Without Thinking, by Malcolm Gladwell Have you ever wondered why love at first sight, so seemingly ill-advised, sometimes works out for the long-term? Malcolm Gladwell may have the answer. In Blink, Gladwell asserts that snap judgments can quite often be as good as decisions made cautiously and deliberately. Blink is about the first two seconds of looking - the decisive glance that knows in an instant. Gladwell, the author of The Tipping Point, campaigns for snap judgments and mind... [Lire la suite]
