This category contains sites covering the many kinds of interactions that occur between animals, their physical habitat and their biological world. Behavior is the interface of the animal with its environment. The scientific study of animal behavior is Ethology. Ethologists ask such questions as: By what means is the behavior produced? Of what use is it to the animal? How did it develop? What is its evolutionary history?- Category ID : 422980
L Charles Birch discusses self-organisation as exampled by termites, ants and slime moulds, where patterns of behavior are determined, not by some centralised authority, but by local interactions about decentralised components
This article aims to organise existing data to test the theory that, when a behavior has been established in response to a certain stimulus, novel stimuli resembling the first will usually elicit the same response.
