Ethology is the scientific study of animal behavior considered as a branch of zoology.
The related development of behavioral ecology has also helped transform ethology.
At the same time a substantial rapprochement with comparative psychology has occurred, so the modern scientific study of behaviour offers a more or less seamless spectrum of approaches, from animal cognition, more traditional comparative psychology, ethology, sociobiology and behavioural ecology.

Behavior is an abstract class that contains the framework for all behavioral components in Java 3D.
The Java 3D behavior scheduler invokes a Behavior node's processStimulus method when a ViewPlatform's activation volume intersects a Behavior object's scheduling region and all of that behavior's wakeup criteria are satisfied.
This method is useful with certain types of behaviors (e.g., Billboard, LOD) that rely on per-View information and with behaviors in general in regards to scheduling (the distance from the view platform determines the active behaviors).

Decide that the behavior is not a problem because it's appropriate to the child's age and stage of development.
When the unacceptable behavior occurs, tell the child the behavior is unacceptable and give a warning that you will put him or her in time-out if the behavior doesn't stop.
The biggest drawback to this method is that although the punishment stops the bad behavior for a while, it doesn't teach your child to change his or her behavior.

Given a set of behaviors whose wakeup conditions are satisfied at the same time, the behavior scheduler will execute all behaviors in a lower scheduling interval before executing any behavior in a higher scheduling interval.
The Java 3D behavior scheduler invokes a Behavior node's processStimulus method when an active ViewPlatform's activation volume intersects a Behavior object's scheduling region and all of that behavior's wakeup criteria are satisfied.
The scheduling interval defines a partial order of execution for behaviors that wake up in response to the same wakeup condition (that is, those behaviors that are processed at the same "time").
