current fitness effects of behaviour that matter. Although these are all legitimately classed as behavioural ecology (for example, see the remit of the journal Behavioral Ecology), the fact is that most behavioural ecology is concerned with explaining the design, or adaptedness, of behaviour. To do this

used to investigate animal groups. Companion animal studies are often based on the premise that companion animals, particularly dogs, are neotenous and form a juvenile “attachment” to the guardian. Further, this belief is not founded in animal welfare science or behavioral ecology. Instead, the origin

better insights into the behavioural ecology in situ among Mollienesia species, we asked the following questions: (i) are there variations in behavioural intra- and interspecific interactions between P. velifera and P. mexicana , and (ii) how is phenotypic variation in male size manifested in specific

There are several suggestions that Tinbergen’s classification and the formulation of the question “What does the behavior exist for?” contributed to the emergence and development of the discipline of behavioral ecology (Gross, 1994
