Conflict of Interests, A

Synopsis
Conflict is common in the animal world; it might be over food, mates or territory. Disputes do not always end in fights; the occurrence and intensity of aggressive behaviours is directly related to the costs and benefits of fighting. The aggressive behaviour of red deer on the Scottish island of Rhum during the breeding season is observed. Great tits, whose plumage signals status, are the focus of experiments on aggressive reactions at feeding sites.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
