  3. Measuring behaviour accurately with instantaneous sampling: A new tool for selecting appropriate sampling intervals

    Contributor(s):: Hämäläinen, Wilhelmiina, Ruuska, Salla, Kokkonen, Tuomo, Orkola, Saana, Mononen, Jaakko

    A central dilemma in instantaneous sampling (IS) is to select appropriate sampling intervals for different behaviours. Ideally, the interval should be as long as possible without risking the accuracy of obtained estimates. In this study, we developed a computational method for evaluating the...

  5. Rover@Home : computer mediated remote interaction between humans and dogs

    Contributor(s):: Benjamin Ishak Resner

    In this thesis we create a method to allow dogs and humans to interact over the Internet. In particular, we generalize an established dog training technique known as "clicker-training" such that the remote and co-located interactions are reported by dog owners to be similar. In the...

    Contributor(s):: Dunton, E. M., Combs, D. L.

  7. Comparative applied perception research: The case of working dogs

    Contributor(s):: Helton, William S., Helton, Nicole D., Hoffman, Robert R., Hancock, Peter A., Scerbo, Mark W., Parasuraman, Raja, Szalma, James L.

  8. Metazoa Ludens: Mixed-Reality Interaction and Play for Small Pets and Humans

  9. Animal Ecologies: Laurie Spiegel's musical explorations of urban wildlife

    Contributor(s):: Feisst, Sabine

  10. An initial investigation into the effects of isolation and enrichment on the welfare of laboratory pigs housed in the PigTurn system, assessed using tear staining, behaviour, physiology and haematology

    Contributor(s):: DeBoer, S. P., Garner, J. P., McCain, R. R., Lay, D. C., Jr., Eicher, S. D., Marchant-Forde, J. N.

    In some parts of the world, the laboratory pig ( Sus scrofa) is often housed in individual, sterile housing which may impose stress. Our objectives were to determine the effects of isolation and enrichment on pigs housed within the PigTurn - a novel penning system with automated blood sampling -...

  11. The relevance of variations in group size and phenotypic appearance on the behaviour and movement patterns of young domestic fowl

    Contributor(s):: Liste, G., Campderrich, I., Beltran Heredia, I. de, Estevez, I.

    Variations in the group size of laying hens might increase the risk of undesired behaviours with important consequences for the birds' health and welfare. However, larger groups housed at constant densities also translate into larger enclosures that may increase space efficiency, therefore...

  12. "I can haz emoshuns?": understanding anthropomorphosis of cats among internet users

    Contributor(s):: Derek Foster, Conor Linehan, Shaun Lawson, Daniel Mills, Sarah Ellis, Helen Zulch

    The attribution of human-like traits to non-human animals, termed anthropomorphism, can lead to misunderstandings of animal behaviour, which can result in risks to both human and animal wellbeing and welfare. In this paper, we, during an inter-disciplinary collaboration between social computing...

  13. Sociality motivation and anthropomorphic thinking about pets

    Contributor(s):: Paul, E. S., Moore, A., McAinsh, P., Symonds, E., McCune, S., Bradshaw, J. W. S.

    Sociality motivation, the need to feel socially connected with others, has been proposed as an important determinant of individual variation in anthropomorphic thinking. Specifically, it has been suggested that people who are socially isolated or disconnected will tend to infer more human-like...

  14. A simple system for the remote detection and analysis of sniffing in explosives detection dogs

    Contributor(s):: Gazit, I., Lavner, Y., Bloch, G., Azulai, O., Goldblatt, A., Terkel, J.

  17. The socioemotional effects of a computer-simulated animal on children’s empathy and humane attitudes.

    Contributor(s):: Tsai, Yueh-Feng Lily, Kaufman, David M.

  18. Computer Simulation Studies and the Scientific Method

    Contributor(s):: Summers, Richard L.

    The scientific method is the formal procedure for all acceptable scientific endeavors. With this methodology, there is a continual interaction between theory, in the form of an hypothesis, and objective, experimental analysis. There is a new step in the scientific method that involves the use of...

  19. Computer-aided pattern recognition of large reptiles as a noninvasive application to identify individuals

    Contributor(s):: Moro, D., MacAulay, I.

    For large species, the capture and handling of individuals in capture-mark-recapture studies introduces nonhuman animal welfare issues associated with handling, physical marking, and possible wounding due to tag loss. The use of photographic identification for these species offers an alternative...

  20. Assessing the human-animal relationship in dairy cows kept in different housing systems

    Contributor(s):: Popescu, S., Borda, C., Diugan, E. A., Popdan, R.

    The human-animal relationship (HAR) represents an important feature of adequate cattle breeding, both for improving the animals' welfare and to facilitate the farm activities. The aim of this study was the comparative assessment of the HAR's quality in dairy farms with tie stalls and loose...
