The Secret Life of the Dog

Aims

To show how:

  • new hypotheses, although initially dismissed by the scientific establishment, may have strong experimental support, and in time may gain general acceptance
  • evolution of a particular species does not happen in isolation; co-evolution offers advantage to both species
  • scientific experiments can be used to investigate long-term evolutionary processes
