  1. Do collar-mounted predation deterrents restrict wandering in pet domestic cats?

    Contributor(s):: Hall, C. M., Bryant, K. A., Fontaine, J. B., Calver, M. C.

    Roaming pet cats kill and harass wildlife, hybridise with wild felids, interbreed with feral populations, spread disease or annoy neighbours, and endanger their own welfare by fighting, being struck by vehicles or ingesting poisons. Confinement of pet cats is unpopular, so alternative methods to...

  2. Como piensan los animales: Alex Kacelnik at TEDxPuraVida

    Contributor(s):: Alex Kacelnik

    His interest is to understand animal behavior in light of the ecological problems that evolution presents species in their natural circumstancesAlex Kacelnik is Professor of Behavioral Ecology at the University of Oxford , UK.His interest is to understand animal behavior in light of the...

  3. A review of cat behavior in relation to disease risk and management options

    Contributor(s):: Lepczyk, C. A., Lohr, C. A., Duffy, D. C.

    Domestic cats ( Felis catus) are a common household pet and also a notorious invasive species around the world. Because cat numbers have been increasing in many locations it is critical to work on management solutions that help to reduce threats posed by cats. With regard to cat behavior, one of...

  4. Acoustic characteristics of courtship and agonistic vocalizations in Przwewalskii's wild horse and in domestic horse

    Contributor(s):: Alberghina, D., Caudullo, E., Chan, W. Y., Bandi, N., Panzera, M.

    For closely related species living in similar habitats, differences in the acoustic morphology of vocalizations could play a role in mate recognition as well as provide insight into the evolutionary divergence between species. Przwewalski's horses ( Equus Przwewalskii) and Mongolian domestic...

  5. The progress in nutrition research of musk deer: implication for conservation

    Contributor(s):: Wang, WenXia, Zhou, Ran, He, Lan, Liu, ShuQiang, Zhou, JunTong, Qi, Lei, Li, LinHai, Hu, DeFu

    Musk deer ( Moschus spp.) are small forest ungulates that are unique to Asia and are mainly distributed in China. In the last 30 years, because of indiscriminate trapping, hunting, and killing of the musk deer for musk and the loss of suitable habitat due to deforestation, the distribution and...

  6. Home range, body condition, and survival of rehabilitated raccoons ( Procyon lotor) during their first winter

    Contributor(s):: McWilliams, M., Wilson, J. A.

    The effects of raccoon ( Procyon lotor) rehabilitation on postrelease survivorship are unknown. Raccoon rehabilitation success was measured as differences in prewinter body condition, home range size, distance to manmade structures, and during-winter survival between raccoons in the wild and...

  7. Activity patterns in reindeer with domestic vs. wild ancestry

    Contributor(s):: Reimers, E., Tsegaye, D., Colman, J. E., Eftestol, S.

    We analyzed GPS-based activity patterns for two wild reindeer ( Rangifer tarandus tarandus) herds: Norefjell-Reinsjofjell with domestic ancestry and larger average body size and Rondane with wild ancestry and smaller body sizes. We compared activity patterns and tested whether these could...

  8. Cattle habitat selection and associated habitat characteristics under free-range grazing within heterogeneous Montane rangelands of Alberta

    Contributor(s):: Kaufmann, J., Bork, E. W., Blenis, P. V., Alexander, M. J.

  9. Differential preference for ultraviolet light among captive birds from three ecological habitats

    Contributor(s):: Ross, M. R., Gillespie, K. L., Hopper, L. M., Bloomsmith, M. A., Maple, T. L.

  10. A model to predict the likelihood of cliff swallow nesting on highway structures in northern California

    Contributor(s):: Coates, R. W., Delwiche, M. J., Gorenzel, W. P., Salmon, T. P.

  11. An investigation into the use of road drainage structures by wildlife in Maryland, USA

    Contributor(s):: Sparks, J. L., Jr., Gates, J. E.

  12. Brown treesnakes: a potential invasive species for the United States

    Contributor(s):: Kahl, S. S., Henke, S. E., Hall, M. A., Britton, D. K.

  13. Detecting autocorrelation problems from GPS collar data in livestock studies

    Contributor(s):: Perotto-Baldivieso, H. L., Cooper, S. M., Cibils, A. F., Figueroa-Pagan, M., Udaeta, K., Black-Rubio, C. M.

    Contributor(s):: Phillips, C. J. C., Davies, E., Lisle, A.

  15. One Health: more than just a catch phrase!

    Contributor(s):: Jack, S. W.

    Contributor(s):: Colman, J. E., Lilleeng, M. S., Tsegaye, D., Vigeland, M. D., Reimers, E.

    Contributor(s):: Mangel, J. C., Whitty, T., Medina-Vogel, G., Alfaro-Shigueto, J., Caceres, C., Godley, B. J.

    The marine otter (Lontra felina) inhabits patches of rocky coastline from central Peru to southern Chile and is classified as Endangered by the IUCN. Given the limited information available about the species, we set out to assess marine otter diet with a view to detecting latitudinal...

  20. Behaviour of badgers ( Meles meles ) in farm buildings: opportunities for the transmission of Mycobacterium bovis to cattle?

    Contributor(s):: Tolhurst, B. A., Delahay, R. J., Walker, N. J., Ward, A. I., Roper, T. J.

    Eurasian badgers (Meles meles) are implicated in the transmission of bovine tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis) to cattle. Here we investigate potential spatio-temporal foci of opportunities for contact between badgers and cattle in farm buildings. We discuss the relative occurrence of different...
