Simulated data follow relationships taken from the scientific
. You select which systems to use with your students.
"Logically organized and menu-driven ... of use as an ancillary
experience in an animal behavior course ... the program concept is
unique" (Choice, 1988). Data are displayed on a scatter-plot, which
can be printed. Analysis options include Regression & the
comparison of means, and data can be saved for further analysis.
The 25 systems simulated on this disk are listed below:
1. Influence of flock size on vigilance in starlings
2. Selection for color preference by quail chicks
3. Daily migratory activity for three bird genera
4. Daily grazing activity for Australian cattle
5. Phototaxis in adult and tadpole frogs
6. Single gene mutant and fruitfly memory
7. Rhesus infant learning with surrogate mothers
8. Shock avoidance and three behaviors in rats
9. Female sexual displays and male testosterone level
10. Shell-dropping and optimal foraging in crows
11. Pigeon flock size and success of attacks by hawks
12. Male size and harem size in pinnepeds
13. Female selection of mates based upon nuptial gift
14. Mate selection in bullfrogs and embryo mortality
15. Repeated matings and progeny in Drosophila
16. Bird song frequencies of Central American forests
17. Prairie dog colony size and alarm calls
18. Helper males in the Australian blue wren
19. Wealth and reproduction in polygynous culture
20. Honey bee waggle dance and distance to food
21. Discrimination reversal learning in fish and rats
22. Hummingbird territory and food available
23. Mechanical stimulation and protozoan behavior
