okay, i am not sure what you mean here. the word 'trait' suggests that you are talking about genotypic factors, while the first words seem to be about phenotypic factors. i can give you some crude definitions, since i have been in biology (genetics) for 5 years ( BSc + MSc) now and i have never head of those words being put together.

to me it seems like anatomical traits would be like limbs or noses in mammals and wings in birds, or fins in fishes.
physiological traits would be the differences in signalling cascade in different organisms. some of these would ultimately lead to anatomical traits.
behavioural traits are how different animals behave, like hive mentality in some birds/fishes, or ants.

I've worked it out now but thanks for helping
