Family relationships and learning among ravens

Recommended Posts

Ravens

Corvus Corax

Researchers studying baboons in Namibia recently reported that an individual baboon's personality
predicted how well they would learn about a new food source from watching other baboons, with
bolder and more anxious animals learning more successfully. Specific social relationships among
individuals also impacted the ability of a baboon to learn from other individuals, a phenomenon that
is clearly not limited to baboons. The role of family relationships in learning among ravens is the
subject of this One Species at a Time podcast from the Encyclopedia of Life.
