Mallatt, Jon (2019) Time to vary the formula. Animal Sentience 25(28)
Lori Marino and Debra Merskin, Intelligence, complexity, and individuality in sheep
In the past few years, Marino and her colleagues have written a series of comprehensive and helpful review articles on the cognitive, emotional, and social complexity of pigs, chickens, cows, and most recently, sheep. These articles are similarly structured, even formulaic, which has benefits but also limitations. Here, I point out the limitations in order to suggest new directions and contributions for the authors in the future.
