Academic Press, 2015.

ISBNs 9780128006481

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Animal Creativity and Innovation explores theories and research on animal innovation and creativity, comparing and contrasting it with theory and research on human creativity and innovation.  In doing so, it encompasses findings from psychology, biology, neuroscience, engineering, business, ecology, and education.  The book includes examples of animal innovation in parrots, dogs, marine mammals, insects, and primates, exploring parallels from creative play in children.  The book defines creativity, differentiating it from play, and looks at evolutionary models and neurological constructs.  The book further explores applied aspects of animal innovation and creativity including tool use and group dynamics, as well as barriers to creativity.  The final chapters look into how creative behavior may be taught or trained.  Each chapter is followed by a commentary for integration of thoughts and ideas between animal and human research, behavioral and cognitive research, and theory and observation in real life.

  • Compares theory and research on animal and human creativity
  • Defines and differentiates creativity from play
  • Reviews applied creativity in tool use and social dynamics

Piermattei's Atlas of Surgical Approaches to the Bones and Joints of the Dog and Cat

 

5th ed. W.B. Saunders, 2014.

ISBNs 9781437716344

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

This expertly illustrated atlas has been the go-to reference in veterinary orthopedic surgery for nearly 50 years and remains the premier resource for small animal surgical procedures. As in prior editions, Piermattei's Atlas of Surgical Approaches to the Bones and Joints of the Dog and Cat, 5th Edition is teeming with highly detailed drawings that illustrate a wide range of surgical approaches. This edition also features six all new surgical approaches and three approaches which have been expanded to illustrate the modifications required when performing orthopedic surgery on the cat. In addition to updated images throughout, fifty-five brand new illustrations accompany the new surgical approaches. As many will attest, Piermattei’s Atlas is an invaluable reference that no small animal surgeon should be without.

"In summary, if you still don’t have a previous edition of Piermattei’s atlas of surgical approaches to the bones and joints of the dog and cat on your bookshelves, this is a must have. If you already have a previous edition, the difference between the 4th and 5th are not big, but there are a few additions that will still make it a worthwhile buy."
