  1. Cortisol levels in dolphin Tursiops truncatus interactive programs linked to humanNiveles de cortisol en delfines Tursiops truncatus vinculados a programas interactivos con humanos

    Contributor(s):: Sanchez Okrucky, R., Morales Vela, B.

    Understanding the physiological changes in animals during physical activity to improve animal welfare has become increasingly important in animal collections that remain under human care. To date, the effect of interactive programs on dolphins under human care has not been evaluated, for that...

  4. Science, policy, and the public discourse of shark "attacks": a proposal for reclassifying human-shark interactions.

    Contributor(s):: Christopher Neff, Robert E. Hueter

    There are few phrases in the Western world that evoke as much emotion or as powerful an image as the words “shark” and “attack.” However, not all “shark attacks” are created equal. Under current labels, listings of shark attack may even include instances where...

  5. Is Dolphin-Watching Sustainable in Bocas del Toro, Panama

    Contributor(s):: Ashley Sitar

  6. Public Knowledge, Attitudes, and Behavior towards Sharks and Shark Conservation

    Contributor(s):: Jason O'Bryhim

    Many species of shark are in danger of overexploitation and could possibly be facing  extinction. Sharks have been around for over 400 million years but recent declines that  threaten their existence can be traced back to the current consumptive uses brought on by  humans. If...

  7. Selling Conservation? The Role of Volunteer Tourism in Supporting Marine Conservation in Southern Belize

    Contributor(s):: Kathleen Georgia Brander

    Volunteer tourism is a rapidly expanding sector advertised as an alternative to conventional tourism and as a way for tourists to contribute to conservation science. This thesis examines a volunteer tourism organization in southern Belize called ReefCI and investigates how multiple stakeholders...

  10. Re-Homing Exotic Species - A Pilot Program to Prevent Release of Exotic Aquatic Pet Species

    Contributor(s):: Andrew M. Lazur, Ruth Hanessian

    An educational poster program designed to inform pet owners of the dangers of releasing exotic species and provide a re-homing mechanism was evaluated as a means to reduce unwanted environmental releases. The poster provided a URL to the program partners' Web site, which listed participating...

  11. Des exploitations intensives d'huitres pendant l'Antiquite et le Moyen Age sur le littoral atlantique francais: l'exemple de Beauvoir-sur-Mer (Vendee)

    Contributor(s):: Dupont, C., Rouzeau, N.

    Along the European Atlantic facade, the consumption of flat oysters (Ostrea edulis Linnaeus, 1758) has been known since the Mesolithic era (Gutierrez-Zugasti et al. 2011). This observation is also true for French coasts (Dupont 2006). Especially during Antiquity, the exploitation of this species...

  12. Intensive exploitation of oysters during Antiquity and the Middle Ages on the French Atlantic coast: the example of Beauvoir-sur-Mer (Vendee)Des exploitations intensives d'huitres pendant l'Antiquite et le Moyen Age sur le littoral atlantique francai

    Contributor(s):: Dupont, C., Rouzeau, N.

This observation is also true for French coasts (Dupont 2006). Especially during Antiquity, the exploitation of this species...

  13. Feeding behavior and the effect of photoperiod on the performance and hematological parameters of the pacama catfish ( Lophiosilurus alexandri)

    Contributor(s):: Kitagawa, A. T., Costa, L. S., Paulino, R. R., Luz, R. K., Rosa, P. V., Guerra-Santos, B., Fortes-Silva, R.

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the rhythms of feeding and locomotor activity, the ability to synchronize to a fixed feeding time, and the influence of photoperiod on the growth parameters, feed intake and hematological parameters of a recently introduced fish in freshwater Brazilian...

  14. Dietary fatty acid composition significantly influenced the proactive-reactive behaviour of Senegalese sole ( Solea senegalensis) post-larvae

    Contributor(s):: Ibarra-Zatarain, Z., Morais, S., Bonacic, K., Campoverde, C., Duncan, N.

    Few studies have examined the influence of diet on larval proactive-reactive behavioural dimension of stress coping style responses. The present study evaluated the influence of using different vegetables oils (Linseed; Soybean; Olive) and fish oil (Cod liver) for Artemia metanauplii nutritional...

  15. A test of "nutritional wisdom" in perch ( Perca fluviatilis) by self-selection of encapsulated macronutrients

    Contributor(s):: Brannas, E., Strand, A.

    Developing optimal diets based on fish macronutrient requirements is an expensive and laborious task requiring years of research. However, many species of fish can compose a species-specific optimal diet from single source macronutrients in capsules through self-selection. Eurasian perch is a...

For example, challenges in the social or physical environment can trigger physiological responses that compromise an individual's capacity to learn...

  17. A "how-to" guide for designing judgment bias studies to assess captive animal welfare
