Presentation Transcript


Describe two similarities and two differences between innate and learned animal behaviors

  • Describe two similarities and two differences between innate and learned animal behaviors.

  • List and describe the pathway of a fixed action pattern. Name one example.

  • Differentiate between kinesis and taxis

  • Determine the direction and type of the orientation response:

    • Mosquitoes use heat waves to find animals

    • Vines crawl up on rough surfaces by touching around and sensing these surfaced with their tendrils

    • Some flatworms sense light and move away from it.


Describe two similarities and two differences between innate and learned animal behaviors

  • Define what habituation is.

  • Give an example of imprinting.

  • Why are reflexes necessary even in humans?

  • Explain an experiment that modeled operant conditioning.

  • Give an example of an organism that follows a daily rhythm. Describe the environmental cues that set this rhythm.

  • Give an example of an animal that follows a yearly rhythm. Describe the environmental cues that set this rhythm.


Describe two similarities and two differences between innate and learned animal behaviors

  • Explain how the internal clocks are set in humans.

  • Describe an experiment that can be used to collect data on the daily activity of animals.

  • Go to the human biorhythms page in your handout. Give an example of a blood component that peaks in the afternoon and one that peaks at night while we are asleep.

  • List three compass mechanisms that can be used by animals for migration. Explain how one is tested in a lab.


Describe two similarities and two differences between innate and learned animal behaviors

  • List three environmental reasons that can result in migration.

  • Give an example of a specific animal that migrates and name a specific reason why they migrate.

  • Give two environmental reasons why hibernation occurs. Give an example of an animal that hibernate.

  • Describe the physiological changes of animals during hibernation.

  • List three ways for animals to communicate with one specific example each.


Describe two similarities and two differences between innate and learned animal behaviors

  • List three advantages and two disadvantages of social groupings among animals.

  • Distinguish between pheromones and hormones.

  • Explain the significance why pheromones must be specific.

  • Give three examples and describe the role of pheromones in each example.
