Caro & Hauser (1992) suggest that, to be regarded as teaching, an animal must change its behaviour in the presence of naïve individuals in such a way as to facilitate their learning. Students who are admitted to CASNR with core course deficiencies must remove these deficiencies within the first 30 credit hours at UNL, or within the first calendar year at UNL, whichever takes longer, excluding foreign languages. Wings with few cross veins and usually not many veins. beak protruding from underside or rear part of head.

Antivivisection: Questions of logic, consistency, and conceptualization. Nevertheless they highlight the important point that much may be hidden within an observed behaviour. As Guilford & Dawkins (1991) have emphasised, mediating between detection and response are the receivers’ central nervous mechanisms of signal discrimination, information processing and decision-making, which together make up the psychological filter (or ‘landscape’, as Guilford & Dawkins put it) through which signals must pass to trigger a response (Box 11.4).

He received similar awards from other organizations. Current evolutionary theory is not strictly Darwin’s theory as he originally conceived it. In the same way, a dog baring its teeth at a rival reduces our uncertainty about what the rival will do next: it is more likely to move away than it was prior to seeing the other dog’s teeth. Inter-group calculated migrations in female gorillas appear to be based on information about alternative sites gleaned from within the current site (i.e. while still in H1, see above).

Rats maintained the dietary preferences of their predecessors even though there was no longer a disincentive to reinforce it. Most attempts rely on anthropomorphism, emphasising comfort (adequate space, food and other resources), health (freedom from injury, disease and stress), ‘normal’ behaviour (the repertoire of behaviours performed in the wild) or philosophical stances on ethics and animal rights (e.g.

Livestock can be trained to voluntarily enter a restraining device. Gibson eds) Mammalian Social Learning, pp. 141–57. Tropisms met with only in the simpler anipass up the scale of life these primary tendencies to action become broken up and com- bined with other forms of behavior. Such asynchronous phase shifts as different rhythms try to readjust underlie some of the unpleasant effects of ‘jet lag’ after long-distance travel. A knowledge of the home area, its food sources, hiding places and escape routes, would pay obvious dividends when needs arose.

However, the success of scroungers within any group or population is likely to depend on their frequency relative to producers, since, if there are too many, the rate at which producers make resources available will be insufficient to support them. For more on the mechanism for touch, see Somatosensory system and Mechanoreceptors Touch can be an important factor in social interactions, for example in fights or in a mating context.
