Title: Inherited Traits and Learned Behavior


1
Inherited Traits and Learned Behavior
  • Some traits are inherited by plants and animals
    from their parents
  • Differences in inherited traits affect the
    ability of animals and plants to survive changes
    in the environment
  • Animals are able to learn some behaviors as they
    interact with their environment

2
Inherited Traits
  • All plants and animals inherit characteristics
    from their parents.
  • These inherited traits are passed on from the
    parents to their children.
  • When you inherit a trait, like eye color or
    height, you cannot change it.
  • What are some traits you inherited form your
    parents?

3
Instinctive Behavior
  • Some traits are behaviorsthe way animals, and in
    some cases plants, act.
  • Instinctive behaviors are behaviors one does not
    have to learn.
  • Examples of instinctive behavior
  • Swallowing
  • Birds flying in groups
  • Migration

4
Learned Behavior
  • Learned behavior happens when an animal learns to
    do or not do something based on what happened to
    it when it did that action before.
  • Example A deer sees anew type of flower and eats
    it. The flower tastes good and the deer eats it
    again.

5
Surviving Environmental Change
  • Inherited traits can help living things survive
    in their environment.
  • If the environment changes, some inherited traits
    may become more helpful or advantageous.
  • Example A rabbit may have white fur. In the
    snow, the rabbit is harder to see. Gradually, the
    rabbits fur will become whiter.

6
Additional Information
  • Learned behaviors can also help animals survive
    environmental changes.
  • Each new group of animals has to learn the
    behavior from their parents or discover it on
    their own.
