    For management and/or research purposes, chimpanzee mothers and their offspring are often physically separated from one another at an earlier age than they would be in the wild. Studies of the behavioural and physiological effects of mother-infant separation on infant behaviour have been...

  2. Social behaviour and injuries of horned cows in loose housing systems

    Contributor(s):: Menke, C., Waiblinger, S., Folsch, D. W., Wiepkema, P. R.

    The relationship between social behaviour and skin injuries (caused by horns) of loose housed horned cows was investigated on 35 dairy farms (mean herd-size, 34.54, range, 8-80).
