Co-operative behaviours directly related to this selective pressure include alarm calling, mobbing behaviour, sentinel behaviour, and group defence. g. Jarman, 1974). g. Rood, 1983, 1986). However, predation as a principle factor molding complex, co-operative avian social systems may be less widely appreciated.
