Public Radio International’s “Living on Earth” producer Mark Seth Lender hosts a program on animal behavior, “Restraint: Why Animals Avoid Doing Harm,” at 7 p.m. on April 20 at the Wallingford Public Library, 200 N. Main St., free. RSVP: 203-265-6754, www.wallingfordlibrary.org.
Mr. Lender will read stories drawn from his recent fieldwork in the Arctic, Antarctic, Iceland and Africa that illustrate the principal of “restraint” as it applies to animals in the wild. Animals hold back in conflicts with their own kind. If they didn’t, tigers, elephants, and a host of well-armed others would long ago have gone extinct. Virtually unknown is the remarkable degree to which this same courtesy – which Mark Seth Lender calls “restraint,” extends between species.
