A major reason for conflict in the animal world is territory.
The male animal establishes an area; she size of the area is
sufficient to provide food for him, his mate (or mates) and
their offspring. Migrating birds, for example, divide up the
5 best territory in the order of “first come, first served”.
The late arrivals may obtain larger territories, but less
food is available, or they are too close to the habitats of
the enemies of the species. If there is really insufficient
food or the danger is very great, the animal will not mate
10 In this way, the members of the species which are less fit
will not have offspring.
