Ultimate causes- evolutionary conditions that have slowly shaped the behaviour of a species over generations. Proximate causes- immediate environmental events and conditions that affect behaviour: an complete understanding any behaviour requires to understand the past and present conditions that influence it. Culture- the sum of socially transmitted knowledge, customs, and behaviour patterns common to a particular group of people.
