This chapter focuses on evolutionary causes of animal personalities. First, it discusses the causes of variation within populations, and, in particular, describes how state differences, frequency-dependent selection, spatiotemporal variation in the environment, and non-equilibrium dynamics can cause variation in behavior. The chapter also examines the role of the architecture of behavior, stable state variables, and social conventions in causing adaptive behavioral correlations.

Keywords:   animal personalities, state differences, frequency-dependent selection, spatiotemporal variation, non-equilibrium dynamics, behavior, adaptive behavioral correlations
