Contributor(s):: Jessica S. Iwachiw
The lives of humans and animals have been intertwined through time immemorial, and in many instances the relationship between humans and animals has been thought to be good for human well-being. As such, it is not surprising that treatments for a wide range of ailments, from physical to...

Contributor(s):: Castanheira, Maria Filipa, Cerqueira, Marco, Millot, Sandie, Gonçalves, Rui A., Oliveira, Catarina C. V., Conceição, Luís E. C., Martins, Catarina I. M.
Individual differences in behavioural and physiological responses to challenges are progressively accepted as adaptive variation and reveal a strong degree of evolutionary conservation throughout the vertebrate taxa. Previous studies in gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) suggested that individual...
Association between personality and stereotypic behaviours in the African striped mouse Rhabdomys dilectus
Contributor(s):: Joshi, Sneha, Pillay, Neville
Stereotypic behaviours, which are abnormal, repetitive and invariant behaviours caused by frustration and/or central nervous system dysfunction, develop as a result of sub-optimal captive conditions that provide inadequate motor and sensory stimulation. However, not all individuals housed under...
Behaviour of proactive and reactive tilapia Oreochromis niloticus in a T-maze
Contributor(s):: Mesquita, Flávia O., Torres, Isabela F. A., Luz, Ronald K.
Knowing that individuals with different coping strategies can exhibit different behaviours in associative learning, we evaluated the learning capacity of proactive and reactive tilapia fish. Trained and untrained, proactive and reactive, tilapia were subjected to a T-maze and their behaviour...
Behavioural and physiological responses of domestic dogs (Canis familiaris) to agonistic growls from conspecifics
Contributor(s):: Wood, Penney A., de Bie, Josine, Clarke, Jennifer A.
Motivation–structural rule theory predicts that a sender producing harsh, low frequency sounds directed at a conspecific modifies the receiver's behaviour, in part, by communicating its willingness to escalate to an attack. Motivation–structural (MS) rules generally assume that receivers respond...
Behavioural development of pigs with different coping characteristics in barren and substrate-enriched housing conditions
Contributor(s):: Bolhuis, J. E., Schouten, W. G. P., Schrama, J. W., Wiegant, V. M.
Characterization of piglets based on the degree of resistance they display in a so-called Backtest is, to a certain extent, predictive of their coping responses to several challenges in later life. It is unknown, however, whether these individual coping characteristics of pigs are also reflected...
Behavioural syndromes in stereotypic striped mice
Contributor(s):: Silber, Sarah, Joshi, Sneha, Pillay, Neville
Stereotypical behaviours (SBs) are abnormal, repetitive behaviours often observed in captivity. SBs are linked to impoverished captive conditions, and stereotypic individuals show a particular set of behaviours (e.g. bolder personality, greater activity) indicating proactive coping. Yet, we do...
