Animals are good at being social.
So is the human, according to new research.
The study found that human and animal friendships are highly social.
But the study also found that the same could not be said of the cell model.
A study published in Nature Communications found that social behaviour can be manipulated by factors such as age and genetic factors.
“We found that some of the differences between animals and humans can be explained by age,” lead author Dr David St. Cyr told ABC News.
“Our results show that sociality, which we associate with the ageing process, can be influenced by age and the genes we carry.”
The study looked at how social interactions affect behaviour in mammals.
It was based on data collected in the US in the 1960s and 1970s.
Dr Cyr said the data was useful for studying the interactions between animals, but the animals also needed to be social.
“Humans can also make social connections with other animals, and we can also see these relationships in the animals’ behaviour,” Dr Cyr explained.
“When we look at the relationship between the two, it’s clear that social behaviours are influenced by the genes.”
Animal friends were more social than non-friends When Dr Cyr looked at the data of mammals, he found that animals were better social than other animals.
“Animals that we have observed, particularly in social groups, tend to be much more social, than animals that are not social at all,” he said.
“In terms of their overall behaviour, we found that they tend to show more social behaviour than animals with different kinds of social behaviour.”
Dr Cyr found that humans were able to make a significant impact on the animals.
This is because we have many social animals, he said, but not all of them have to be our friends.
“Most of the social animals are either part of our social groups or have other animals that they can make social contact with, so we have lots of social animals,” Dr Croce said.
But Dr Cyr also found evidence that the effects of social interaction are more powerful in the younger animals.
Dr Croc said that in the study, all the animals that were given a choice between being in a group or alone, had to choose the group.
This could explain the results that humans had the most impact on their animals.
But in contrast, animals that spent more time in groups had more social interaction with each other.
“The idea that our social interactions are so powerful in young animals is probably based on a mistake,” Dr St. Lucy said.
Dr St Lucy said he would like to continue studying the effects that age has on social behaviour.
He said it would also be interesting to look at how much the effects change with age.
“Age really affects the way you behave, and the way that your behaviour changes,” Dr Luce said, adding that humans might be able to influence the effects on behaviour of their animals by altering the environment.
