Essential Biology E6 (HL) Further Studies of Behaviour

  1. 1. Blog resource: http://tinyurl.com/4nwugl2 Click4Biology: http://click4biology.info/c4b/E/E6.htm <br />Cite all sources using the CSE method (or ISO 690 Numerical in Word). Highlight all objective 1 command terms in yellow and complete these before class. Highlight all objective 2 and 3 command terms in green – these will be part of the discussions in class. After class, go back and review them. <br /><ul><li>Define colony. </li></ul>……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….<br /><ul><li>State the linnean name for the honeybee and give its phylum. </li></ul>Name: Phylum:<br /><ul><li>Describe the social structure of a honeybee colony:
  2. 2. Queen:
  3. 3. Workers:
  4. 4. Drones:
  5. 5. Colonies are examples of eusocial behavior in animals. Describe the social structure of another, vertebrate (non-human), species that lives in colonies.
  6. 6. Species name:
  7. 7. Using Apis mellifera as an example, outline how natural selection can act on the colony level in social organisms.
  8. 8. Define altruism.
  9. 9. ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
  10. 10. Outline how altruistic behavior is the result of natural selection.
  11. 11. Distinguish between kin selection and reciprocal altruism.
  12. 12. Discuss the evolution of kin selection in ants.
  13. 13. Discuss the evolution of reciprocal altruism in vampire bats.
  14. 14. TOK Link: The Selfish Gene (Dawkins, 1976)
  15. 15. The Selfish Gene means that genes act in their own interest (not that there is a gene for selfishness). Behaviours that benefit the gene will be passed on to subsequent generations.
  16. 16. Discuss: With behaviours being genetic in nature, to what extent is anyone really good?
  17. 17. Are there any truly unselfish acts in humans?
  18. 18. Are we really kind to others for their benefit, or is it a veneer to promote our own
  19. 19. reproductive fitness?
  20. 20. Define foraging.
  21. 21. ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
  22. 22. Outline optimal foraging theory.
  23. 23. Outline how foraging behaviours are subject to natural selection.
  24. 24. Outline how Bluegill sunfish adjust their prey selection to optimize foraging.
  25. 25. Outline how one other named species adjusts patch residence time to optimize foraging.
  26. 26. Define mate selection.
  27. 27. Explain how mate selection can lead to exaggerated traits through natural selection in animals, using one physical and one behavioural example in named species.
  28. 28. Behavioural PhysicalExample speciesTraitExplanation
  29. 29. Describe rhythmical behaviour in animals.
  30. 30. Outline one animal example for each of these types of rhythmical behavior:
  31. 31. Lunar cycles
  32. 32. Seasonal variations
  33. 33. Circadian (diurnal) rhythms
  34. 34. Discuss the possible impacts of humans on natural rhythmical behavior in animals. </li></ul>Works Cited BIBLIOGRAPHY 1. Allott, Andrew.
