The study of geographic variation occupies a central position in evolutionary biology. This is because geographic variation is ordinarily the smallest amount of evolution that can be detected in nature and because evolutionary theory, in its strongest form, applies only to small evolutionary change. Thus it is particularly surprising that there are few behavioral studies of geographic variation. These studies have demonstrated geographic variation in social displays (Boch, 1957; Sawada, 1963… CONTINUE READING
