Exploring the Wonders of Animal Navigation

Friday, January 31, 2020 - 15:00 to 15:45
Destinations London 2020 Schedule - Stanfords Travel Writers Festival - Stanfords Travel Writers Festival

Introduction

David Barrie talks to Paul Blezard about the navigational tools that animals (including humans) use, whether it is celestial, solar, magnetic fields, landmarks or even scent, and the difference between map and non- map-based navigation. He also presents the evidence of map-like representations of the world in animals’ brains.  While humans increasingly rely on technology for navigation, how will that that impact on the relationship we have with the world around us?
