The response of an individual, group, or species to its environment or within the context of its environment. The term can refer generally to the way in which someone behaves or to an instance of such behavior.
The interaction of the muscles and glands (and possibly neurons?) of an organism and the environment.
Birds' behavior is complex and diverse. From fancy courtship displays to diving beneath icy Artic seas, birds exhibit a wide variety of unusual actions that are fascinating to observe. Please visit Birds' Lives to learn more.

All coordinated actions and responses of an individual; Related Terms: Animal Behavior
Any observable, recordable, and measurable movement, response, or verbal or nonverbal act demonstrated by an individual.
the action or reaction of something (as a machine or substance) under specified circumstances; "the behavior of small particles can be studied in experiments"
(psychology) the aggregate of the responses or reactions or movements made by an organism in any situation
a combination of an event with an action triggered by that event
a complex set of responses
an interleaving of input and output events
the way in which someone acts under certain circumstances.
see action, movement cycle, and response.
the activity or pattern of activity of the cat (also spelt behaviour)
Combination of actions and events. See the behaviors panel.
Observable actions and responses to environmental stimuli. These actions and responses are also influenced by internal factors such as understanding, feelings, and emotions related to the stimuli.
(1) The set of external characteristics that an object exhibits. (2) The abstract class that provides common behavior for Class and Metaclass objects.
The observable effects of a request.
a relationship between a stimulus and a response.
The combination of input values and precondition s and the required response for a function of a system. The full specification of a function would normally comprise one or more behaviors.
All the activity of a human being that is capable of observation by another person.
The total collection of actions and reactions exhibited by a person.
Any activity (either covert or overt) the learner will be expected to exhibit after training. The activity should be observable and measurable. It is the primary component of an objective.
the past and present overt responses of subjects.
The response of an individual to stimulus in the environment.
Behavior is the conceptual action thought, etc., being specified.
Intentional and unintentional actions that can be observed and interpreted.
A combination of an event and an action. Editor's Note: A term used in software; When something happens, something else happens automatically. Although the term is used in software, it is a useful concept in risk management. [D04917] RMW
Directly observable and measurable human actions.
Observable actions and responses to the environment. These actions and responses are also influenced by internal factors such as understanding, feelings, and emotions related to the environment.
The observable effects of an operation or event, including its results. Synonym: behavior [OMA].
A response made by an individual to a stimulus.
1. The manner in which one behaves. 2. Psychology. The actions or reactions of persons or things in response to external or internal stimuli.
Any observable and measurable response or act. Behavior is occasionally broadly defined to include cognitions, psychophysiological reactions, and feelings, which may not be directly observable but are defined in terms that can be measured by means of various assessment strategies (Kazdin, 2001)
The observable activity of humans and animals.
An action or set of actions performed by a person under specified circumstances that reveal some skill, knowledge or attitude. Training seeks to increase desirable behaviors or introduce new behaviors and/or eliminate undesirable ones.
The actions or reactions of persons under specific circumstances.
Those activities of an organism that can be observed by another organism or by an experimenter?s instruments. Included within behavior are verbal reports made about subjective, conscious experiences. See also conscious processes.
Behavior or behaviour (see spelling differences) refers to the actions or reactions of an object or organism, usually in relation to the environment. Behavior can be conscious or unconscious. Behavior should not be mistaken with social behavior, which is more advanced action, as social behavior is behavior specifically directed at other people.
