    Animal Bodies, Human Minds: Ape, Dolphin, and Parrot Language Skills is the first work of its kind to treat the history of language research with a broad selection of animals. The volume describes the problems, research, criticisms, and prospects for animal language research. During the last 40 years, scientists have turned their attention to successfully communicating with animals. Most subjects have been humans' closest relatives, apes - bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans. However, important work has been done with dolphins, parrots, and sea lions and is showcased in this text.
