  1. Attachment style classification in the interspecific and intraspecific bond in dogs

    Contributor(s):: Borrelli, C., Riggio, G., Gazzano, A., Carlone, B., Mariti, C.

  2. Information Theory Opens New Dimensions in Experimental Studies of Animal Behaviour and Communication

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Reznikova, Zhanna

    Over the last 40–50 years, ethology has become increasingly quantitative and computational. However, when analysing animal behavioural sequences, researchers often need help finding an adequate model to assess certain characteristics of these sequences while using a relatively small number...

  3. Measuring Equine-Assisted Therapy: Validation and Confirmatory Factor Analysis of an ICF-Based Standardized Assessment-Tool

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Stolz, I., Anneken, V., Froböse, I.

    The International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) of the World Health Organization (WHO) was established as an international framework for monitoring rehabilitation outcomes and the impacts of health interventions since, as the term “functioning” implies,...

  4. Development of an ICF-based assessment tool for equine-assisted therapy: model structure and reliability

    | Contributor(s):: Stolz, I., Tillmann, V., Anneken, V., Froboese, I.

    BACKGROUND: Scientific investigation and documentation of equine-assisted therapy has increased over the past several years. Yet there are no standardized and validated tools for evidence-based measurement of processes and outcomes to assess equine-assisted interventions. AIM: The objective of...

  5. Humans can identify cats' affective states from subtle facial expressions

    | Contributor(s):: Dawson, L. C., Cheal, J., Niel, L., Mason, G.

  6. A systematic review o f the potential uses of on-animal sensors to monitor the welfare of sheep evaluated using the Five Domains Model as a framework

    | Contributor(s):: Fogarty, E. S., Swain, D. L., Cronin, G. M., Trotter, M.

  7. Theory of medical scoring systems and a practical method to evaluate Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) foot health in European zoos

    | Contributor(s):: Ertl, N., Wendler, P., Sos, E., Flugger, M., Schneeweis, F., Schiffmann, C., Hatt, J. M., Clauss, M.

  8. Classification of animal welfare on mink farms differs between three annual production periods

  9. What can kinematics tell us about the affective states of animals?

    | Contributor(s):: Guesgen, M. J., Bench, C. J.

  10. Mortality resulting from undesirable behaviours in dogs aged under three years attending primary-care veterinary practices in England

    | Contributor(s):: Boyd, C., Jarvis, S., McGreevy, P. D., Heath, S., Church, D. B., Brodbelt, D. C., O'Neill, D. G.

  11. Human Classification of Context-Related Vocalizations Emitted by Familiar And Unfamiliar Domestic Cats: An Exploratory Study

    | Contributor(s):: Ellis, Sarah L. H., Swindell, Victoria, Burman, Oliver H. P.

    Previous research has shown that human classification of contextspecific domestic cat “meow” vocalizations is relatively poor, although improves with experience and/or general affinity to cats. To investigate whether such classification further improves when recipients (humans) of the...

  12. The backtest in pigs revisited—Inter-situational behaviour and animal classification

    | Contributor(s):: Zebunke, Manuela, Nürnberg, Gerd, Melzer, Nina, Puppe, Birger

    Since the introduction of the backtest for the early detection of coping strategies in piglets by Hessing in the 1990s, this behavioural test has been intensively investigated with ambiguous results. One possible explanation for this lack of consistency might be the different classification...

  13. Pigs (Sus scrofa domesticus) categorize pictures of human heads

    | Contributor(s):: Wondrak, Marianne, Conzelmann, Elin, Veit, Ariane, Huber, Ludwig

    Scientists as well as farmers are increasingly interested in the mental capacities of pigs. Recent research has revealed surprising cognitive abilities, such as episodic memory, intentional deception and even theory of mind. Still, our knowledge about perceptuo-cognitive abilities, especially in...

  14. The Contextual Cat: Human–Animal Relations and Social Meaning in Anglo-Saxon England

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Kristopher Poole

    The growing popularity of relational approaches to agency amongst archaeologists has led to increased attention on the specific contexts of interaction between humans and their material worlds. Within such viewpoints, non-humans are perceived as agents in their own right and placed on an equal...

  15. Understanding Adolescents' Categorisation of Animal Species

    | Contributor(s):: Melanie Connor, Alistair B Lawrence

    Categorisations are a means of investigating cognitive maps. The present study, for the first time, investigates adolescents’ spontaneous categorisation of 34 animal species. Furthermore, explicit evaluations of 16 selected animals in terms of their perceived utility and likeability were...

  16. A review and synthesis of dog cognition research : the world from a dog's point of view

    | Contributor(s):: Miles Kuiling Bensky

    Driven by both applied and theoretical goals, scientific interest in canine cognition has experienced a rapid surge in popularity, especially over the last 15 years (Morell, 2009). Here we provide the most comprehensive review to date of dog cognition research, capturing all the articles (285) we...

  17. Justice for all? Children's moral reasoning about the welfare and rights of endangered species

    | Contributor(s):: Ruckert, J. H.

    This study reports children’s developing moral concerns for endangered animals. Three questions were addressed: 1) Do children conceive of not harming an endangered animal as a moral obligation? 2) Do children use biocentric (nature-centered) moral reasoning? and 3) Does a developmental...

  18. What do infants know about cats, dogs, and people? Development of a 'like-people' representation for nonhuman animals

  20. A natural cure for the pet fish problem: feature emergence as classificatory composition

    | Contributor(s):: Chris Thornton

    Where do emergent features come from? This has long been an intriguing puzzle. The concept of pet fish illustrates the difficulty. Most people expect pet fish to live in bowls, even though this is not something either pets or fish normally do. The inference that pet fish have the feature of...
