multidimensional analysisRachael BrownAbstract.  Transformations  
in the “behavioural innovativeness” of species — broadly, the capacity to  
generate new or novel behaviours (Reader & Laland 2003) — are often  
associated with significant evolutionary shifts in cognition (Arbilly and  
Laland 2017). Whilst this assumption is intuitively and theoretically  
appealing, more empirical support is needed to test it adequately. Such  
empirical work is currently hampered by the lack of a good measure of the  
magnitude behavioural innovation in the literature. In this paper  
I offer a solution to this measurement problem via a multi-dimensional  
framework for characterising and comparing putative cases of behavioural  
innovativeness. Using a paradigmatic case from the New Caledonian Crow as a  
guide, I identify several dimensions upon which a cases of  
behavioural innovation vary. I then demonstrate how we can use  
this multidimensional analysis in forwarding our understanding of the  
relationship between evolutionary transformations in innovation and  
evolutionary transformations in cognition.----------Michael Nielsen is
