Scientists observing the finches, concluded that the feeling which unites the inhabitants of our planet in the family, was born in the course of evolution. Researchers have proved that love, which is inherent not only to humans, but some of the birds has a scientific basis.
To reveal the secret of such inexplicable feelings as love helped scientists birds. Individuals from the family of finches that exactly how people create 1 pair once and for life, professionals explained why they set up families.
Researchers from the Institute of ornithology of the max Planck Society in Seewiesen had the experience of almost 2 hundred Finch. In the study, one part of the birds they allowed to choose their own a pair, and the other part of the researchers imposed their own choice by offering the first available partner for creation of family.
The purpose of a similar experience was figuring out why the birds are, and as people spend a lot of time searching for the 2nd half, instead of starting the reproduction of the here and now, tells RIA Novosti. The experience was to demonstrate how the lack of love affects family life of birds.
As a result of German scientists found out that couples that have developed naturally considered to be more prolific, at the time in families created by scientists on the contrary occurs dead offspring. Additionally, researchers have shown that happiness and love in the family was reflected not only in the number of surviving Chicks, but also on the number of early deaths.
Taking into account the opinion of ornithologists, due to the fact that the males who do not have the feeling to own "half" do not seek to help the female care for the Chicks. With all this, the researchers added that couples who joined love, males on the contrary care for females.
With all this German researchers draw an analogy between the finches and humans, because they both tend to create a monogamous relationship and usually live with their spouse throughout life. This allowed the researchers to conclude that the feeling of love was formed in the course of evolution, as in birds, and the inhabitants of our planet. In addition, the experts came to the conclusion that love promotes more efficient procreation and increases the lifespan.
