It seems, therefore, that the emission of pyrazine may have evolved to enhance the learning potentiating effects of novelty and conspicuousness, so increasing the efficacy of dramatic aposematic warning patterns. Endogenous clocks are a widespread feature of organisms of all levels, even single cells, which shows that nervous and endocrine systems are not essential prerequisites for rhythmic control.

Both men and women valued a partner’s income more in long-term relationships and marriage, but women attached far greater importance to it at all levels of involvement (Kenrick et al. 1990; Fig. 12.6c). SeaWorld has the finest facilities on the planet for the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of stranded animals, so many of the creatures that you see at our parks have been rescued. In this and its dependence on an appropriate environment (no pre-formed nest available) for the right outcome, the hens’ response is more in keeping with a goal-seeking system than a goal-directed one (the hen behaves Figure 1.2 Domestic hens (Gallus gallus domesticus) spend more time nest-building and thus take longer to lay eggs after entering a nesting area if they are presented with pre-formed nests, especially if these already have an egg.

We are particularly interested in the behaviour of domestic animals or animals kept in captivity. Thus, as with choosing prey (see above), shrews seemed to adjust their risk-sensitive foraging decisions on the basis of anticipated unpredictability (and potential shortfall), rather than a change in requirement or food availability. Daphnia magna, except that in moderate light the animals become indifferent and show a negative reaction immediately become negathrown upon them.

You will complete rotations in the large animal hospital, which includes operating theatres, as well as sophisticated diagnostic imaging equipment, a reproduction unit and small animal teaching laboratories. Social factors can also play a role: chicks kept singly remain responsive to moving objects much longer than those kept in groups, perhaps because the latter imprint on one another (Guiton 1959). The following tables describe the programme and constituent modules. Although many people think that a sea lion is a seal - there are many differences between seals and sea lions.
