- Many eyes hypothesis ground squirrel
- a requires a mental map of
the terrain but does not require a compass. In principal it could be
used for longer trips
- b means leaving the site of birth or
social group (emigration), traversing unfamiliar habitat, and
settling into a new area and/or social group (immigration).
- c predators could approach within 3 m of solitary individuals but no closer than 300 m to grouped individuals before waves of alarm calls swept through the colony
- d Among frugivorous primates, the amount of time spent foraging per day increases as a function of group size and potentially sets an
upper limit of group size.
- e Parental care that is misdirected to
non-offspring (suckling the wrong
baby) and killing of young by
non-parents are the biggest costs

5 Multiple choice questions
- Most mammalian movements occur in a relatively small area
such as when an individual acquires resources within its home
- Many species of seals and sea lions migrate thousands of kilometers each year from island breeding and molting sites to feeding areas.
- the "queen" reproduces, mother and young are fed
(but not nursed) by male and female adults of the worker caste,
another caste kept the young warm . males of this caste bred with the queen.
- Mammals are assumed to have a cognitive map, sex differences in spatial ability
- Many marine mammal
strandings have been associated with changes in the earth's
magnetic field possibly due to solar flares or areas of magnetic
5 True/False questions
Ungulate Migration → Many species of seals and sea lions migrate thousands of kilometers each year from island breeding and molting sites to feeding areas.
The reproductive success of males depends on? → the number of females they can mate with and so are likely to range farther than females searching for mates.
Sheep habitat Home → a behavior passed from one generation to the next
through the process of learning.
Reason for dispersal (reduce Competition) → with conspecifics for food, shelter, or mates. Most mammals are polygynous and males may be forced to disperse as they compete for access to females
Lion Dispersal Pattern → males leave (usually
before 4 years old), to become nomads or form coalitions that take
over new prides. Competition with other males is important as
most departures occur when a new coalition takes over. Some
males do leave voluntarily.
