The behaviour(s) characterising a role affect those of other individuals in the group in predictable ways, either through specific signals (Chapter 11) or the physical effects of the performer’s activity. This is something we are taught is impossible. The field of animal behavior can be controversial with many viewpoints and approaches. The requirements listed below are representative of the knowledge, skill, and/or ability required. Covers many branches of the animal kingdom with links to both past and present research projects.

If rape is part of an adaptive reproductive strategy, some fairly obvious predictions follow. Isles et al. (2001) looked at parent-of-origin effects on urinary odour preferences (an important means of social communication [3.2.1.4]) in CBA/Ca and C57Bl/6 mice. Darwin’s failure to appreciate the principles of heredity was a major factor in the temporary eclipse of his ideas during the early years of the twentieth century.

Keeton eds) Animal Migration: Navigation & Homing, pp. 455–70. Evolutionary thinking has been remarkably lacking, though not entirely absent, from contemporary psychology and we have already seen a consequence of this in the contretemps with the ethologists. The direction of neural development in vertebrates is generally caudal–rostral (rear to fore). If dogs are able to differentiate between other dogs and humans, as Grandin says that they are, why would they ta Ummm.

Gene expression, and resulting behavioural phenotypes, may also show parent-of-origin effects (genomic imprinting), where genes inherited from the mother or father are selectively silenced in different tissues. This position is usually for holders of Ph. D. (1999) Electroreception in monotremes. In many cases, however, the control of behaviour is not a local, self-contained process, but the result of a distributed neural network functioning in different ways at different times.

Dissection of owl pellets - Students will be able to examine owl pellets and what their diet consisted of, specifically rodents. As predators and scavengers, often hunting in packs, dogs are not the most obvious candidates for companionship with humans, and indeed the behaviour of wild dogs towards people is vastly different from that of the familiar domestic animal. The University of Oklahoma Biological Station, located on Lake Texoma, on the Oklahoma-Texas border, is a permanent field station with a resident staff of research scientists that provides year-round facilities for faculty and students.

Gigerenzer & Hug (1992), for instance, charged subjects with solving the problem in Fig. 4.26(c) under one of the following conditions: (a) subjects were German mountain climbers visiting a Swiss mountaintop to see whether the Swiss had the same rule about bringing firewood as them, or (b) they were members of a Swiss mountaineering club checking whether lodgers were obeying the firewood rule.
