How animals behave is the scientific and objective study of animal behaviour, usually with a focus on behaviour under natural conditions, and viewing behaviour as an evolutionarily adaptive trait.
Many naturalists have studied aspects of animal behaviour throughout history. Understanding animal behaviour can be important in animal training. Considering the natural behaviours of different species or breeds enables the trainer to select the individuals best suited to perform the required task.
This module looks at a range of animal behaviour and what it represents. Students are encouraged to use photographs and magazine editorials to support the activities in this module.
