German term or phrase: Verhaltensraum
"Mäuse haben zwar viele verschiedene Geschlechtspartner, die Forscher haben aber auch regelmäßig Fälle von Partnertreue und Inzucht gefunden. In den ***Verhaltensräumen*** bilden sich oft Großfamilien heraus, in denen Väter mit Töchtern und Mütter mit Söhnen Nachkommen zeugen. Das fördert die Bildung genetisch einheitlicher Gruppen und verstärkt somit den Artbildungsprozess."

I need the definition and the translation of this term. Thanks in advance...

behavioral patterns

..behavioral patterns of mice give rise to large numbers of offspring..

Behavioral 'settings' might be a more precise translation for the isolated term but it don't sound right in the context of the whole sentence..
