"'Animal builders' create structures - whether homes, traps, or for courtship display - that amaze us with their apparent ingenuity. But how do creatures with such small brains build these complex forms, sometimes working in teams with a clear division of labour towards a common goal? Which skills are inherited and which learned? And how did these behaviours evolve? Mike Hansell considers builders from across the animal kingdom to explore these questions and reveal the ways in which different animals achieve their building feats."--BOOK JACKET.
