Skrócony opis:

Animal behaviour is one of the biological disciplines that have been developing intensively over the last decade. Researchers focus on many issues including hunting, reproduction, or altruistic behaviour.

The aim of the course is:

1) to acquaint students with the complexities of animal behaviour

2) to explain how animal behaviour affect the ability of survival of the animals

3) to show the possibilities of using knowledge about animal behaviour in nature conservation

During the classes students will observe the behaviour of selected invertebrate species

Undoubtedly, the course on animal behaviour will inspire students to have a humanitarian approach to animals.

Key: animal, behaviour, survival

Pełny opis:

1. Animal behaviour: introduction

2.Social behaviour: social insects, altruism in social insects, altruism in vertebrates

3.How animals communicate with each other?

4.How to avoid a predator and find food?

5.How to find the optimal habitat? What are the benefits of territoriality? Why do animals migrate?

6.Animal behavioral adaptations to life in extreme environments

7.How do parasites affect the behavior of animals?

8.Biological clock and animal behaviour

9.Reproductive behaviour: sexual selection, mating system

11.Neural and hormonal control of the animal behaviour

12.Human behaviour

13.New aspects of animal behaviour: Bahaviorists vs. Ethologists, the idea of “Umwelt”
