Play in Animals: Play Behavior Goes Way Beyond Dogs

Course Information:

Play is an unusual area of behavior because so much remains unknown about it. For starters, scientists are not sure what it’s for, how to define it, or what its evolutionary history is. It is most common in mammals and prevalent in a number of birds, but also occurs in other animal groups, including reptiles and some invertebrates.This webinar will delve into theories about the function of play, the difficulty in defining play, some of the most useful and often-used definitions, and discuss a variety of types of play. We will discuss who plays and how, including a discussion of some key aspects of human play as well as dog play. We will discuss what is known about play, what is unknown about play, and why play matters at all.
