dc.description.abstractIn the great Darwinian struggle for existence, all animals must tackle the problems posed by variable environments, be it finding and processing food, recognizing and attracting potential mates, avoiding predators, outcompeting rivals or navigating back to nesting sites. Although the mental processes by which different species deal with such challenges are varied, all animals share the fundamental problem of having to cope with the sheer abundance of information in the environment, much of which is likely to be irrelevant to the task at hand.en_GB
