Most biologists from all over the world know John Alcock's book "Animal Behavior". It's a must for people interested in an evolutionary approach towards animal AND human behavior. It's simply a masterpiece.
How pleased we were with John and Sue Alcock's visit to Barranco Alto ! For several days we enjoyed their nice company and profited from John's amazingly broad knowledge !

As an avid birdwatcher, John Alcock was very enthusiastic to find a new bird species for the Barranco Alto Birdlist: the Chestnut-capped Foliage-gleaner (Hylocryptus rectirostris, Fura-barreira). It's a member of the ovenbirds and nests in the riverbanks of the Rio Negro.
