  1. Welfare of farmed musk deer: changes in the biological characteristics of musk deer in farming environments

    Contributor(s):: He, Lan, Li, LinHai, Wang, WenXia, Liu, Gang, Liu, ShuQiang, Liu, WenHua, Hu, DeFu

    Musk deer are an important economic wildlife resource, and long-term over-use has resulted in a sharp population decrease in the wild. Farming of musk deer is important to prevent the shrinking wild population from being hunted for their musk. Musk deer farming has a history of more than 60 years...

  2. Interrogation of modern and ancient genomes reveals the complex domestic history of cattle

    Contributor(s):: David A. Magee, David E. MacHugh, Ceiridwen J. Edwards

    The development of agriculture at the advent of the Neolithic period, circa 13,000 years before present (YBP), is considered to be the most important cultural innovation in human history. Before this, anatomically modern humans had successfully managed to occupy most habitable and accessible...

  3. The domestication of the dog: An unrivalled alliance

    Contributor(s):: Giffroy, J. M.

  4. Encounters on the frontier: Banteng in Australia's Northern Territory

    Contributor(s):: deKoninck, V.

    This paper considers the case of an introduced species that resides in what is now a jointly managed national park in the north of tropical Australia. Banteng ( Bos javanicus) are a peculiar feral nonhuman animal in that they constitute a potential environmental threat within the domestic...

  5. Relationships between young stallions' temperament and their behavioral reactions during standardized veterinary examinations

    Contributor(s):: Peeters, M., Verwilghen, D., Serteyn, D., Vandenheede, M.

    Horse handling and veterinary examination can induce hazardous stress reactions. Such reactions occur especially in young and less-trained horses, particularly stallions, and make their handling a risk for breeders, grooms, and medical staff. Moreover, these stressful situations will affect the...

    Contributor(s):: Harding, S.

  7. Genetic and environmental influences on individual differences in frequency of play with pets among middle-aged men: a behavioral genetic analysis

  17. A candidate gene association study of cryptorchidism and scrotal hernia using canine and porcine models

    Contributor(s):: Xia Zhao, Max Rothschild (adviser)

    Cryptorchidism and scrotal hernia, both being sex-limited complex defects, are the most common congenital defects observed in humans, dogs and pigs. It is believed that these two defects are controlled by multiple genes as well as affected by environmental factors. In this thesis, 22 or 14...
