The book on the Netlab project often returns to the notion that learning is merely a form of adaptation and that, conversely, adaptation is merely a form of long-term learning. This, in turn, all fits under the umbrella notion that memory is behavior
The idea that learning is adaptation is learning is forwarded as a possibility, mainly as a better means of discussing the concepts. This (in my opinion) provides a clearer and more converged understanding of how memory works in biological organisms. This could be very wrong, of course, so it's important to describe it properly. That way it, and not a straw man, can be critiqued. This article represents one such attempt to properly describe it. . .
Batesian mimicry is when a non-noxious/non-poisonous plant or animal projects the appearance of a poisonous plant or animal, allowing it to avoid being eaten by predators.
Those predators, goes the logic, which have partaken of the poisonous organism and survived, would have become very sick, and would have learned to avoid ingesting anything that appears to be that organism in the future. This will include those organisms who are not poisonous, but merely look, or act, like the poisonous organism.
