In Raised by Animals, evolutionary biologist Jennifer Verdolin, PhD, invites parents, animal lovers, and science buffs to explore the wild world of parenting in the animal kingdom - and its implications for human families. Weaving together research on both human and animal behavior, she draws fascinating parallels in a narrative that's packed with interesting tidbits.

Find out why newly hatched goslings imprint on anything that moves, and how Mexican free-tailed bats can identify their pups among literally millions of others. Plus, gain insight from Mother Nature on the big questions of child-rearing, from birth to 'leaving the nest':

* Does attachment parenting have evolutionary roots?

* Do more attractive offspring benefit from favouritism?

* How can we better understand our own families?

In a sense, we are all raised by animals - and that may not be such a bad thing!
