"One health": the potential of closer cooperation between human and animal health in Africa. (Bovine tuberculosis in Ethiopia.)
Contributor(s):: Zinsstag, J., Tanner, M.
Emerging zoonoses affect livestock and humans, which calls for closer cooperation between animal and public health. Conceptually ideal, such cooperation is difficult to achieve and the causative agents of outbreaks are often confused. A lack of awareness may very likely be due to limited capacity...

A comparison of inferential analysis methods for multilevel studies: Implications for drawing conclusions in animal welfare science
Contributor(s):: Stevens, Kara N., Asher, Lucy, Griffin, Kym, Friel, Mary, O'Connell, Niamh, Collins, Lisa M.
Investigations comparing the behaviour and welfare of animals in different environments have led to mixed and often conflicting results. These could arise from genuine differences in welfare, poor validity of indicators, low statistical power, publication bias, or inappropriate statistical...

With increased scrutiny surrounding the welfare of elephants in zoological institutions, it is important to have empirical evidence on their current welfare status. If elephants are not receiving adequate exercise, it could lead to obesity, which can lead to many issues including acyclicity and...
A counterbalanced version of Ainsworth's Strange Situation Procedure reveals secure-base effects in dog-human relationships
Contributor(s):: Palmer, R., Custance, D.
It has been proposed that the dog-human relationship constitutes an infantile-like attachment. However, previous empirical support based on Ainsworth's Strange Situation test has proved inconclusive due to order effects inherent in the original procedure. In particular, these order effects...
