Konrad Lorenz, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1973, was an important 20th-century pioneer of ethology, the investigation of animal behavior in the wild. Here Am I--Where Are You?, all about geese, is ultimately a very human book and a fitting conclusion to a brilliant thinker's career.

Book Description Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1991. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First published in German in 1988, this book not only represents the most complete investigation to date of the ethnology of a higher organism and its system, but is also in a sense a personal memoir of Lorenz (1903-1989), whose studies of graylag geese in Germany and Austria spanned almost his whole life. Beginning with some general observation on animal behavior studies and a discussion of his own methodology, Lorenz continues with life histories of typical birds and two ethograms cataloging individual and social behaviors, and concludes with a philosophical chapter on goose-human analogies. Not an easy book, but accessible to informed laypersons as well as trained biologists, it belongs in most science collections. Illustrated with color and b&w photos. Bookseller Inventory # 10817
