Social network analysis of animal behavioral ecology: a cross-discipline approach

  • 摘要: 社会关系网络分析(social network analysis,SNA)是综合运用图论、数学模型,来研究个体与个体、个体与其所处社会网络、以及一个社会网络与另一社会网络之间关系的研究方法。SNA不仅仅是一套技术、而是一种关于关系网的方法论。该方法论认为每一个个体都不是独立的,而是通过信息、行为、空间分布、生态因素等连结共生。这让我们以全局视野理解一个动物群体,从两方关系、三方关系、个体与群体间关系、到动态网络模型等角度进行研究,为验证性行为与性选择理论、互惠与合作理论、信息流动与疾病传播理论、个体策略与种群选择理论、界定一个群、预测社会关系网络稳定性等行为生态学领域提供可靠的量化数据,极大地推动了行为生态学的发展。相对于国外的快速发展,SNA在国内动物学研究中的应用仍十分有限。为此,该文结合作者对川金丝猴的研究结果,介绍了SNA的理论背景、概念、测量方法和应用领域,旨在推广SNA在我国行为生态学研究中的跨学科应用。

摘要: 社会关系网络分析(social network analysis,SNA)是综合运用图论、数学模型,来研究个体与个体、个体与其所处社会网络、以及一个社会网络与另一社会网络之间关系的研究方法。SNA不仅仅是一套技术、而是一种关于关系网的方法论。该方法论认为每一个个体都不是独立的,而是通过信息、行为、空间分布、生态因素等连结共生。这让我们以全局视野理解一个动物群体,从两方关系、三方关系、个体与群体间关系、到动态网络模型等角度进行研究,为验证性行为与性选择理论、互惠与合作理论、信息流动与疾病传播理论、个体策略与种群选择理论、界定一个群、预测社会关系网络稳定性等行为生态学领域提供可靠的量化数据,极大地推动了行为生态学的发展。相对于国外的快速发展,SNA在国内动物学研究中的应用仍十分有限。为此,该文结合作者对川金丝猴的研究结果,介绍了SNA的理论背景、概念、测量方法和应用领域,旨在推广SNA在我国行为生态学研究中的跨学科应用。
