The various types of behavioral adaptations studied by psychology can be  categorized in terms of their time scale of adaptation. All behavioral adaptation can  be illustrated with the same diagram -- only the time scale changes.  Because our topic is behavioral adaptation, the various time scale  illustrations will all come from the behavioral adaptation level of molarity,  but in principle any level of molarity could be used. Returning to the basic  depiction of behavioral adaptation introduced in the previous section, the  initial state of behavior could be said to be in equilibrium with the initial  state of the environment.    When the environment changes, the behavior does not change at exactly  the same time as the environment. There is a time lag between the  environmental change and the behavioral shift. This lag is called  hysteresis. Subsequently, the behavior comes into equilibrium with the
