Default allelomimetic behavior??

What in the world is allelomimetic behavior? Can't find it in any english
language dictionary. Haven't had time to look in the science-type
dictionaries.

The root *allelo* refers to genetic traits. If this is the fashion, how can
one train something to something that is genetic?

Allelomimetic behaviour is contagious behaviour, i.e. behaviour which
influences another to do the same.

Dogs commonly show allelomimetic behaviour. It is often advantageous for
social animals to display this sort of behaviour. In prey animals like deer,
zebra or wildebeest, one individual has the ability to trigger the whole herd
to flee. This trait is so important for self-preservation that farm animals
like sheep, cows and horses still retain it. Social predators show these
traits for hunting purposes. If one member of the pack suddenly runs after
possible prey it is likely to trigger the same response in the whole pack. The
wolf's howl may also be considered allelomimetic. When one wolf begins
howling, the whole pack joins in, in chorus, especially if a high-ranking wolf
has initiated it.

Dogs clearly show allelomimetic behaviour when they bark because the
neighbour's dog is barking, or when they run after playing children.
