(p. ix) About the Editors

  • Jennifer Vonk

    Jennifer Vonk has a longstanding interest in evolutionary theory and comparative cognition. She studied psychology, culminating in an undergraduate thesis project on behavioral endocrinology at McMaster University, then went on to pursue an MA degree in the study of human memory, before investigating orangutan and gorilla concept formation during her doctoral studies at York University. During her postdoctoral work, she expanded her interests to the evolution of uniquely human cognitive capacities by conducting comparative studies with chimpanzees and children, and she is now exploring cognitive continuities and discontinuities in a broad range of species, including bears and psittacines, as well as human children and adults.
