  1. An international comparison of female and male students' attitudes to the use of animals. (Special issue: Minding animals: Emerging issues concerning our relationships with other animals.)

    Contributor(s):: Phillips, C., Izmirli, S., Aldavood, J., Alonso, M., Choe, Bi, Hanlon, A., Handziska, A., Illmann, G., Keeling, L., Kennedy, M., Lee, Gwi, Lund, V., Mejdell, C., Pelagic, V., Rehn, T.

    Previous research has demonstrated that in households where the male partner is more dominant, there is convergence in male and female attitudes towards animals, whereas if the female partner is empowered they exhibit greater empathy towards animals than the male partner. We tested this theory of...

  2. Animal humanness, animal use, and intention to become ethical vegetarian or ethical vegan

    Contributor(s):: Diaz, E. M.

    The present study used relational and predictive approaches to build on past literature examining humanlike animal attributes. From the relational approach, it examined how five humanlike attributes ascribed to animals (Attributes Questionnaire) relate to one another and to attitudes toward 21...

    The objective of the present study is to assess the variability of the measures used in the welfare quality (WQ) protocol for pigs among slaughterhouses in five different countries and to propose alarm and critical thresholds for the calculation of scores for future development of an animal...

  7. Behavior of the Murciano-Granadina goat in the hour before parturition

    Contributor(s):: Ramirez, A., Quiles, A., Hevia, M., Sotillo, F.

    The preparturient behaviour of 90 Murciano-Granadina goats (33 of which had single and 57 twin births) was studied during the last hour before parturition. The goats were under free-stall management with access to an adjacent outdoor enclosure. The main activities performed by the goats in the...

  8. Behavioural effects of social mixing at different stocking densities in prepubertal lambs

    Contributor(s):: Ruiz-de-la-Torre, J. L., Manteca, X.

    The behavioural effects of stocking density and mixing individuals from 2 different flocks were studied in 80 prepubertal lambs of about 20 kg body weight kept at either low (1 lamb/m) or high (3.3 lambs/m) stocking densities, similar to conditions experienced during transport. At both densities,...

  9. Benefits of training/playing therapy in a group of captive lowland gorillas ( Gorilla gorilla gorilla )

    Contributor(s):: Carrasco, L., Colell, M., Calvo, M., Abello, M. T., Velasco, M., Posada, S.

    Animal well-being and enrichment continue to gain importance in the maintenance of primates living in captivity. Positive reinforcement training (PRT) and/or playing interaction have been shown to be effective in improving the well-being of several species of primates. This research study...

  10. Binaries, boundaries and bullfighting: multiple and alternative human-animal relations in the Spanish mounted bullfight

    Contributor(s):: Thompson, K.

    Research into human-animal relations in Spain has favored the footed bullfight as a case study for broader generalization. Conducted before the formalization of human-animal studies and in an academic milieu characterized by structuralist or binary approaches, such research has largely...

  11. Bullfighting and animal welfare

    Contributor(s):: Odberg, F. O.

    The various arguments for and against bullfighting are discussed. The author advocates changing the rituals to prevent suffering of the animals and bloodshed.

  12. Characteristics of 24 cases of animal hoarding in Spain

    Contributor(s):: Calvo, P., Duarte, C., Bowen, J., Bulbena, A., Fatjo, J.

    Animal hoarding is considered to be an under-reported problem, which affects the welfare of both people and animals. Few published studies on animal hoarding are available in the scientific literature, particularly outside North America. The present study was designed to obtain data on animal...

  13. Coexistence of plants and coexistence of farmers: is an individual choice possible?

    Contributor(s):: Binimelis, R.

    The introduction of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Europe has been characterized by controversy. In 2002, the European Union introduced the concept of "coexistence" as a compromise solution that, through the establishment of science-based technical measures, should allow the market to...

  14. Comparative study of trophic behaviour and herd structure in wild and feral goats living in a Mediterranean island: management implications

    Contributor(s):: Rivera-Sanchez, L., Cassinello Roldan, J., Baraza Ruiz, E., BartolomeFilella, J.

    The aim of this study was to compare the trophic behaviour and the social structure of Majorcan wild goats and feral goats present in the island of Majorca. The former are descendants of an ancestral goat ecotype introduced in the island in the late Neolithic, whereas feral goats come from...

  15. Detection of Verticillium dahliae in olive groves using canine detection units

    Contributor(s):: Pons Anglad a, L., Calvo Torras, M. dels A.

    Verticillium wilt is one of the most significant agricultural diseases in the world, in view of the fact that not only does it affect olive groves but also a wide variety of fruit, vegetable and ornamental plants. Currently, the most efficient and economical method of control involves the use of...

    Contributor(s):: Fabrega, E., Diestre, A., Carrion, D., Font, J., Manteca, X.

    A total of 107 ear samples from all the pigs that died during transport or lairage at two commercial abattoirs in Spain were collected during two months (February and July 2000), in order to determine their halothane genotype (NN, Nn or nn). The frequencies of the three halothane genotypes among...

  19. Environmental care in agriculture: a social perspective

    Contributor(s):: Salazar-Ordonez, M., Sayadi, S.

    At its beginning, the European Union's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) did not include measures to guide farmers in preserving ecosystems. At the same time, the social context on the 1960s and 1970s did not encourage environmental care to become a priority. Since the 1980s, new social concern...
