Behavioral ecology is the study of adaptations of animal and human behavior from a multidisciplinary perspective combining experimental analysis of behaviour with theoretical modelling, and the selective pressures that yield them, in different ecological environments. It studies the causes and consequences of animal behavior with a focus on social contexts. It majorly includes the use of ecological and evolutionary processes to explain the occurrence and adaptive significance of behavior patterns; the use of behavioral processes to predict ecological patterns, and empirical, comparative analyses relating behavior to the environment in which it occurs. The value of a social behavior depends in part on the social behavior of an animal's neighbors. Some adaptations are behavioural and sometimes behaviour drives the evolution of new adaptations by creating new selective environments.
