About the Author:
Desmond Morris, author of The Naked Ape and The Human Zoo was born in Wiltshire, England in 1928. In 1951 he graduated from the University of Birmingham with first class honors and moved to Oxford to pursue doctoral studies in animal behavior under the tutorship of Dr. Niko Tinbergen. In 1973 Desmond Morris returned to Oxford as a research fellow at Wolfson College. In this role he worked with Tinbergen's research group in the Department of Zoology and would continue to research human action-patterns. Over the ensuing years he has maintained his many interests in animal behavior research, the arts, and in making television programs and films. The more significant publications in these more recent years include Manwatching, a Field-Guide to Human Behaviour (1977), The Human Animal (1994) and Peoplewatching (2002).
