City living

Here’s an interesting article in New Scientist about an emerging subspeciality in behaviorism/evolutionary biology: how animals adapt when they move into urban areas.

I blogged about urban coyotes here, with a link to an article that briefly discusses how coyote behavior is different in urban environments than rural ones.

It’s an area that will yield a lot of surprising insights in the future, I predict.
