Animal Behaviour » Learn More
Students who study Animal Behaviour are concerned with understanding the causes, purposes, advancement and evolution of animal behaviour.
Causes include both the external motivations that affect behaviour, and the internal hormonal mechanisms that control behaviour. Purposes are the immediate effects of behaviour on animals and the adaptive value in helping animals survive or reproduce successfully. Advancement is how behaviour changes over time of an animal, and how these changes are affected by both genes and experience. Evolution is the origins of behaviour patterns and how these change over generations.
