    About This Project

    Why does innovation evolve? We humans are extremely innovative, but there are multiple pressures in our evolutionary history that could have selected for it. We're going to examine both sociality and foraging complexity as evolutionary pressures that select for innovation across species. By giving bears (Ursidae) and cats (Felidae) a puzzle box with multiple solutions, we'll shed light on this evolutionary conundrum.

    Blast off!
