Explain what is meant by Nature vs Nurture. Draw a diagram that represents the links between Behavior, Genetics, Environment, and Fitness. Be able to describe or provide an example that incorporates each.
- Animal behavior is governed by complex interactions between genetic and environmental factors
- When behavioral variation within a species corresponds to environmental variation, it may be evidence of past evolution
- Genetic components of behavior evolve through natural selection
- Behavior can affect fitness by influencing foraging and mate choice
