The physical world is complex, yet we are able to find our way around. We can walk through unfamiliar streets, take shortcuts along paths we have never used and remember for many years places we have visited only once. In Wayfinding, Michael Bond explores how our brains make the ‘cognitive maps’ that keep us orientated. In Incredible Journeys, award-winning author David Barrie takes us on a tour of the cutting-edge science of animal navigation, where breakthroughs are allowing scientists to unravel how animals as various as butterflies, birds, crustaceans, fish and reptiles find their way around.
