Re: Odyssey Program Uncovers What Animals Teach Us About Human Behavior

In the eight-session course, "What Animals Teach Us," experts from a variety of disciplines will offer insights into the many ways animals teach us about our own anatomy, physiology and behavior. The course is being offered through Johns Hopkins University's non-credit Odyssey Program. Authors, biologists and conservationists will share original research on a variety of animal species, including the rhesus monkeys, pandas, bats, dogs and golden lions.

Class topics will include:

"How and Why Do We Study Animals?: Case Study The Eastern Tiger Salamander."

"Rhesus Monkeys and Lion-tailed Macaques: Two Sides of Primate Population Ecology."

"Penguins., Albatrosses, Geese and Swans: Long Term Research and Conservation."

"Between Pets and People: The Importance of Animal Companionship."

The coordinator of the course is Charles J. Stine, Sc. D., environmental consultant, coordinator of Odyssey's Certificate Program in Environmental Studies, and founder of Bio Trek Naturalists, Inc. The series also will feature William Sladen, whose work on the migration of Canada geese provided the basis for the film "Fly Away Home;" and Devra Kleiman, an animal researcher formerly with the National Zoo.

The course runs Wednesday evenings from April 2 to May 14 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus, 3400 North Charles Street. The cost is $122 for six classes. For more information or to register, please call 410-516-4842 or visit: www.odyssey.jhu.edu.
