Comparative psychology can generally be defined as the branch of psychology that studies the similarities and differences in the behavior of organisms.
Comparative psychology and ethology are both sciences which study animal behavior, typically nonhuman behavior, though both have often studied humans. Comparative psychology is a subdiscipline of psychology and ethology of biology. Both can trace their roots to the late nineteenth century. Both proposed a science that would compare animal and human behavior, Romanes postulating the existence of a gradient of mental processes and intelligence from the simplest animals to man — the comparative approach much in use today. Romanes strengthened his proposal by a vast collection of anecdotal accounts of clever behavior in dozens of animal

We suggest that, if all researchers with similar goals unite under the single unifying framework of evolutionary theory, many more advances can be made and a more focused field of study will emerge. Keywords: evolutionary framework , dichotomy , unifying , tensions.
