ARTIFICIAL INTIMACY

People have long told machines what to do by pushing buttons. Now, with advances in technology, machines are pushing our buttons.

In Artificial Intimacy, evolutionary biologist Rob Brooks takes us from the origins of human behaviour to the latest in artificially intelligent technologies, providing a fresh and original view of the very near future of human relationships.

Sex dollbots, digital lovers, virtual friends and algorithmic matchmakers help us manage our feelings in a world of cognitive overload. Apps can sense when a user is falling in love, when they are fighting, and when they are likely to break up. These machines, the 'artificial intimacies', already learn and exploit human social needs. They are getting better and faster at what they do.

How will humanity's future unfold when our ancient, evolved minds and old-fashioned cultures collide with twenty-first-century technology?

FLAMES OF EXTINCTION

Scientists estimate more than three billion native animals were killed or displaced during Australia's Black Summer bushfire season. Many species - the koala, regent honeyeater, glossy black-cockatoo, platypus - are inching towards extinction at the hands of mega-blazes and the changing climate behind them.

In Flames of Extinction, award-winning science writer John Pickrell investigates the effects of the 2019-2020 bushfires on Australian wildlife and ecosystems.

WILLIAM T COOPER

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- William Cooper was Australia's foremost bird illustrator, renowned for his celebrated studies of avian species. One of the things that typified his scientific art was the detailed and accurate rendering of the birds' habitat - landscape studies and plant depictions that added to the beauty of his work.

This superbly produced book focuses on his botanical illustrations, including pencil drawings and sketches (which give great insight into his creative processes) as well as the paintings. Chapters include rainforest plants, vines, ferns and epiphytes, dry country, swamps, mangroves and beach forests, and beyond Australia.

Text is written by his wife Wendy, a renowned botanist in her own right, and starts with a botanic description of the depicted plant, but often includes an anecdote from the Cooper's life together, or Bill's diary notes which adds a personal touch to the botanising. A gorgeous must-have book for any naturalist! Lindy Jones
