    Both theories reflect a degree of aggression more typical of hawk-eagle relations.

    Can anyone help me to explain how the sentence below works? The part 'a degree... hawk-eagle relations', the object of the verb 'reflect' I guess, is puzzling to me.
    Both theories reflect a degree of aggression more typical of hawk-eagle relations.

    The source is from npr.org. (http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-w...pecies-rivalry) And the story is about bald eagles that adopt a red tailed hawk and interestingly, the two species are usually in rivalry with each other.

    "More typical of" means "usual in."
    Does that help?
