  • Nt1330 Unit 2 Individual Assignment

    Items of this Guttman chart generally follow the expected pattern as the more difficult items have less 1s and the 1s are from higher achieving students.

  • Altruism In The Langur

    another insight from sociobiology that of mother-fetus conflict (Haig 1993) shows that co-operation is also often conditioned around genetic conflicts of interest. However dominance hierarchies limit species in which altruism is to be expected, for example Baboon (Papio cynocephalus) food appropriation by males reduces the opportunity to begin reciprocal exchanges whereas amongst Chimpanzees ( Pan troglodyte) such behavior might be expected (Trivers 1971:38). Despite fully expecting reciprocal…
