ANIMAL INTELLIGENCE

a collection of cognitive abilities in animals that are typified by learning, problem solving, and higher-order cognition. Current researchers tend to argue against a phylogenic system and look at the challenges faced by each species, as opposed to comparing each organism to humans.

ANIMAL INTELLIGENCE: "Animal intelligence refers to a group of abilities that enable problem-solving by animals in a given environment. "
