  2. Behavioural variation in cultivated juvenile Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.) in relation to stocking density and size disparity

    | Contributor(s):: Uglem, I., Kjorsvik, E., Gruven, K., Lamberg, A.

    The aim of this study was to examine the behaviour and activity of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) juveniles (~65-120 mm total length) in relation to varying stocking density (~500-2000 fish per m3) and size disparity under both experimental and commercial hatchery conditions. This was done by...

  3. Position of operant cost affects blue foxes' time budget between sand floor and mesh floor

    | Contributor(s):: Koistinen, T., Orjala, H., Mononen, J., Korhonen, H. T.

    The aim of the study was to assess whether positioning of the operant cost would affect blue foxes' (Vulpes lagopus) behaviour and time budget between a mesh floor and sand floor. We built fourteen test apparatuses, six consisting of two fox cages with a mesh floor in both cages and eight with a...

  4. An empirical investigation of two assumptions of motivation testing in captive starlings ( Sturnus vulgaris ): do animals have an energy budget to 'spend'? and does cost reduce demand? (Special Issue: Animal suffering and welfare.)

    | Contributor(s):: Asher, L., Kirkden, R. D., Bateson, M.

    The use of demand curves to derive estimates of motivational strength is a popular method for measuring animals' preferences for a range of different resources in applied animal behaviour research. In a typical experiment, an animal pays a gradually increasing cost (e.g. by pushing through a...

    | Contributor(s):: Haug, L. I.

    This article describes the environmental and the animal's own factors that influence the development of behaviour problems and aggression and also considers the owners' perceptions, emotions and finances to help them decide on a treatment programme before considering euthanasia.

  15. Taking the time to assess the effects of remote sensing and tracking devices on animals

    | Contributor(s):: McMahon, C. R., Collier, N., Northfield, J. K., Glen, F.

    The remote monitoring of animal behaviour using telemetry and bio-logging has become popular due to technological advances, falling costs of devices and the need to understand behaviour without causing disturbance to subjects. Over the past three decades thousands of animals have had their...
