Escape behaviour, escape response, or escape reaction, is a possible reaction in response to stimuli indicative of danger, in particular, it initiates an escape motion of an animal. In the cases of reflectory reactions, the escape response may also be called escape reflex.
The term is also used in a more general setting: avoiding of unpleasant situations.
Studying escape reactions has a number of practical applications: fish breeding, Insect repellent design, preventing aircraft-bird collisions, etc.
