Consistency in European seabass coping styles: a life-history approach
Contributor(s):: Ferrari, S., Millot, S., Leguay, D., Chatain, B., Begout, M. L.
Recent years have seen a growth of interest in the consistent differences in individual behaviour over time and contexts constituting the so-called "individual coping styles". An understanding of this inter-individual variation is essential to improve our knowledge of the adaptive value of...
Strategic use of straw increases nest building in loose housed farrowing sows
Contributor(s):: Westin, R., Hultgren, J., Algers, B.
In spite of domestication, sows are still genetically programmed to perform nesting behaviour close to farrowing. In order to facilitate nest building, a method for a strategic use of large quantities of straw has been developed by Swedish piglet producing farmers. The objectives of the present...
Evaluating demographic models for goat domestication using mtDNA sequences
Contributor(s):: Gerbault, P., Powell, A., Thomas, M. G.
Routes of migration and exchange are important factors in the debate about how the Neolithic transition spread into Europe. Studying the genetic diversity of livestock can help in tracing back some of these past events. Notably, domestic goat ( Capra hircus) did not have any wild progenitors (...
The anthropozoology of domestication for milk productionAnthropozoologie de la domestication laitiere
Contributor(s):: Poplin, F.
Milk draws its substance from a living being of flesh and blood and from plant matter full of scents, through a two-cycle digestive system and fermentation in vivo, that of ruminants, which are also animals that provide meat ("you drink my milk, you eat my meat"). The pig, the "outlaw" of...
The milky way: the implications of using animal milk products in infant feeding
Contributor(s):: Howcroft, R., Eriksson, G., Liden, K.
Animal milks have been used in infant feeding for at least a few millennia, but this can only have become a common practice after the domestication of dairy animals during the Neolithic. Neolithic population increase has often been attributed to the effect of a reduction in breastfeeding duration...
