Behaviours for survival
  • (Behavioural ecology)

2
2 types of behaviour
  • Innate virtually identical behaviour for every
    member of species. Born with ability/knowledge.
  • Learned develop or change as a result of
    experience. Not every member of species has same
    experience, so learned behaviour is variable.

Activity 1 Rhythmic behaviours
  • Using pg 344-348 in your text book, complete the
    following table

Behaviour When? Why? Examples
Feeding
Migration

Activity 2 - communication
  • Choose from the following scenarios and complete
    the table on the next slide (use table 11.2 pg
    349 to give you some ideas). Do more than one if
    you get time.
  • Male peacock displaying tail
  • Dog barks at an intruder to their house
  • Female anglerfish excretes a pheromone
  • Dolphins making a buzz sound

The case of the bees
  • Bees have extraordinary ways of communicating
    with one another
  • http//wildwoodforesthoney.com/VIDEO/video012.htm
  • Bees dance to inform others where they can find
    good sources of pollen. Bees also have a very
    interesting social system.

9
Other odd animal behaviours
  • Animals seem to be able to sense seismic movement
    before it occurs. How does this benefit them?
  • Lyrebirds mimic the calls of other birds, and
    even other objects/ animals. How does this
    benefit them?

10
Odd animal behaviour
  • Magpies swoop anything that comes near their nest
    in spring. Why?
  • Cats hiss to scare away predators.
  • Some snakes play dead when attacked.
  • Lions live in harems many females, just one
    dominant, reproducing male
  • Fish swim in schools
