The third dimension of the structure is the time scale of the effect of interest. If we  use behavioral adaptation as the example, we would point out that not only does life  exist – and not only do life forms behave – but they behave in different ways as the  result of experience with the environment. This is what behavioral adaptation  means.  Sensation, learning, developmental, and animal behavior are four  seemingly distinct, nearly autonomous areas of inquiry involved in the  analysis of behavior change. In point of fact, there is a fundamental  continuity underlying these approaches. The appropriate perspective  points out that these areas of inquiry are inextricably interdependent and  vary along a closed continuum. This emphasis along with its implications  provide a comfortable integration of available data, the production of  fruitful research, and an understanding of behavior change.
