  9. Relationship between backtest and coping styles in pigs

    Contributor(s):: Spake, J. R., Gray, K. A., Cassady, J. P.

  10. Selection for temperament in sheep: domain-general and context-specific traits

    Contributor(s):: Beausoleil, N. J., Blache, D., Stafford, K. J., Mellor, D. J., Noble, A. D. L.

  11. The ability of horses to learn an instrumental task through social observation

    Contributor(s):: Ahrendt, L. P., Christensen, J. W., Ladewig, J.

  12. Use of artificial drinkers by unhandled semi-feral ponies

    Contributor(s):: Weerd, H. A. van de, Seaman, S., Wheeler, K., Goddard, P., McLean, B.

  13. Behavioral and physiological predictors of guide dog success

    Contributor(s):: Tomkins, L. M., Thomson, P. C., McGreevy, P. D.

    A range of mobility aids are available to assist people living with vision impairment, and of these, guide dog ownership offers them several unique benefits. However, training a dog to be a successful guide dog comes at a high cost (approximately AU$30,000). Therefore, the aim of this study was...

  14. Learning emotion recognition from canines? Two for the road

    Contributor(s):: Stetina, B. U., Turner, K., Burger, E., Glenk, L. M., McElheney, J. C., Handlos, U., Kothgassner, O. D.

    The ability to recognize emotions is a prerequisite for interpersonal interaction and essential for emotional competencies. The present study aimed at exploring the possibility of enhancing the emotion recognition capability of human beings by using an animal-assisted intervention focusing on...

  15. Bathing behavior of captive Orange-winged Amazon parrots ( Amazona amazonica )

    Contributor(s):: Murphy, S. M., Braun, J. V., Millam, J. R.

    Feather maintenance behaviors, particularly preening and bathing, are nearly universal in birds, though their expression and function vary across species. Based on the rain-bathing style of wild Amazon parrots, parrots were sprayed with water to simulate rainfall, and subsequent bathing...

  16. Behavioural responses to hypoxia provide a non-invasive method for distinguishing between stress coping styles in fish

    Contributor(s):: Laursen, D. C., Olsen, H. L., Ruiz-Gomez, M. de L., Winberg, S., Hoglund, E.

    Two divergent behavioural and physiological response patterns to challenges have been identified in mammals and birds, frequently termed the proactive and reactive coping styles. In recent years, individually distinct coping styles have also been observed in several species of fish. These...

  17. Consistency of individual variation in feeding behaviour and its relationship with performance traits in Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus

    Contributor(s):: Martins, C. I. M., Conceicao, L. E. C., Schrama, J. W.

    Feed intake is commonly used as one of the most important performance indicators in fish. However, very little is known about the behavioural processes involved in ingesting food such as meal duration, feeding frequency and latency to start eating. This study aims at the characterization of...

  18. Domestic pigs alter their social strategy in response to social group size

    Contributor(s):: Samarakone, T. S., Gonyou, H. W.

    In a series of studies, we investigated the concept that domesticated pigs may adopt cost efficient social strategies, in which individuals become less aggressive due to a higher number of potential competitors, in large social groups. Six blocks, each comprising four pens of 18 pigs (small...

  19. Effects of early contact between non-littermate piglets and of the complexity of farrowing conditions on social behaviour and weight gain

    Contributor(s):: Kutzer, T., Bunger, B., Kjaer, J. B., Schrader, L.

    In this study we tested if contact possibilities between non-littermate piglets and complexity of farrowing conditions affect the pre- and post-weaning behaviour, weight gain and skin lesions of piglets. Suckling sows were either kept in a group housing system (GH), in a single pen loose housing...

  20. Evaluating methods of gas euthanasia for laboratory mice

    Contributor(s):: Makowska, I. J., Vickers, L., Mancell, J., Weary, D. M.

    Laboratory mice are most commonly killed with carbon dioxide (CO2), a gas they may find aversive. The aim of this study was to use approach-avoidance testing to record mouse responses to CO2 and to four alternatives: argon, carbon monoxide (CO), and the inhalant anaesthetics halothane and...
