  1. Do social factors related to allostatic load affect stereotypy susceptibility? Management implications for captive social animals

    Contributor(s):: Nagy-Reis, M. B., Mendonca-Furtado, O., Resende, B.

  2. Visual conspecific cues will not help in pygmy bluetongue lizard translocations

    Contributor(s):: Ebrahimi, Mehregan, Bull, C. Michael

    Where a translocation program is used to reinforce an existing population of an endangered species, the response of the introduced individuals to cues from conspecific residents will have an important impact on the success of the translocation. If those cues induce the translocated individuals to...

  8. Someplace like home: experience, habitat selection and conservation biology. (Special Issue: Conservation, enrichment and animal behavior.)

    Contributor(s):: Stamps, J. A., Swaisgood, R. R.

    Recent insights from habitat selection theory may help conservation managers encourage released animals to settle in appropriate habitats. By all measures, success rates for captive-release and translocation programs are low, and have shown few signs of improvement in recent years. We consider...

  9. Dispersal behaviour of free-ranging dogs ( Canis familiaris ) in relation to age, sex, season and dispersal distance

    Contributor(s):: Pal, S. K., Ghosh, B., Roy, S.

    The dispersal of free-ranging dogs from Katwa, West Bengal, India, was studied between January 1993 and December 1996. Between January 1993 and September 1996, 315 pups were observed from 64 litters. Pups were born between October and March each year, with a peak between November and January. The...

  10. Effects of regular handling and exposure to an outside area on subsequent fearfulness and dispersal in domestic hens

    Contributor(s):: Grigor, P. N., Hughes, B. O., Appleby, M. C.

    The effects of regular handling and/or exposure to the outside environment on immature laying hens' fear levels and subsequent readiness to disperse in an outdoor area were investigated. 56 birds, 12 to 20 weeks old, were subjected to (1) no handling plus no outdoor experience (control); (2)...

  11. Emergence and dispersal behaviour in domestic hens: effects of social rank and novelty of an outdoor area

    Contributor(s):: Grigor, P. N., Hughes, B. O., Appleby, M. C.

    Groups of laying hens, were placed in covered boxes with a feeder inside the box, 1 m outside the box, or 2 feeders, 1 inside and 1 out. The time taken for hens to emerge from the box was recorded. Hens emerged earlier when the feeder was outside rather than inside the box. Social rank within the...
