[A method for temporal analysis of behaviour sequences is described and illustrated with examples from Great Skuas (Stercorarius skua). Behaviour is recorded in sequences of short time units. For each behaviour pattern the record is a binary sequence, based on presence or absence in consecutive units. Association between different patterns is analysed over a number of succeeding units. Results are plotted in graphs. The importance of sample unit length is stressed, and the order between patterns is shown to become apparent when the duration of units is similar to that of behaviour patterns. The Χ2-test is used to assign approximate significance levels in the graphs. Some limitations of the statistical model are its dependence on sequence length and deviations from random, independent distribution of behaviour patterns., A method for temporal analysis of behaviour sequences is described and illustrated with examples from Great Skuas (Stercorarius skua).
