We are presented with a vast realm of knowledge to explore in both the physical and virtual worlds. However, at times, it can be challenging to obtain reliable evidence and factual information on specific subjects.
It is crucial to utilize scientific models impartially without allowing our moral beliefs to influence our findings. By defining terms and concepts, we can become responsible professionals, distinguishing science from famous myths and allegories and gaining respect for all species, each communicating differently.
I have compiled a set of subject matters and research studies from reputable sources on animal behavior, which I will update as needed. These articles aim to assist you in developing an educated opinion on the topic.
I encourage you to dedicate some time to reading the references provided and building a reliable scientific foundation that will allow you to engage in meaningful discussions.
