La domesticación de los camélidos andinos como proceso de interacción humana y animal
| Contributor(s):: Hugo D. Yacobaccio, Bibiana Vilá
Este trabajo analiza los mecanismos de la domesticación de la llama (Lama glama) a partir de su ancestro silvestre, el guanaco (Lama guanicoe) haciendo hincapié en las etapas que componen el proceso. Analizamos críticamente algunas falacias que comúnmente se han...
Encounters with a canine other: performing domestication in transnational animal rescue and rehoming

Le chien : un loup domestiqué pour communiquer avec l'homme : l'agressivité du chien
| Contributor(s):: Jean-Marie Giffroy
Il est établi, sur la base des recherches en archéozoologie et en génétique moléculaire, que le loup serait le principal ancêtre du chien et que la domestication se serait produite il y a 14000 ou 15000 ans, soit 5000 ans avant la domestication d'une...

Uncoupling Meat From Animal Slaughter and Its Impacts on Human-Animal Relationships

Behavioural variation among divergent European and North American farmed and wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) populations
| Contributor(s):: Islam, Shahinur S., Wringe, Brendan F., Bradbury, Ian R., Fleming, Ian A.
Animals often display consistent differences in behaviours across situations and contexts. However, little is known about how behavioural traits might vary in a context-dependent manner, with selection favouring correlated sets of behaviours in particular types of environments. Comparative...
What Makes a Rabbit Cute? Preference for Rabbit Faces Differs according to Skull Morphology and Demographic Factors
| Contributor(s):: Naomi D. Harvey, James A. Oxley, Giuliana Miguel-Pacheco, Emma M. Gosling, Mark Farnworth
Domesticated rabbits typically exhibit shorter, flatter skulls than their wild counterparts (brachycephalism). However, brachycephaly is associated with considerable health problems, including problems with dentition. The aim of this study was to establish which type of rabbit face people...

Selection on ultrasonic call rate in neonatal rats affects low frequency, but not ultrasonic, vocalizations in adults

Evidence of large genetic influences on dog ownership in the Swedish Twin Registry has implications for understanding domestication and health associations
| Contributor(s):: Tove Fall, Ralf Kuja-Halkola, Keith Dobney, Carri Westgarth, Patrik K. E. Magnusson
Dogs were the first domesticated animal and, according to the archaeological evidence, have had a close relationship with humans for at least 15,000 years. Today, dogs are common pets in our society and have been linked to increased well-being and improved health outcomes in their owners. A dog...
Genetic differences for behaviour in juveniles from two strains of brown trout suggest an effect of domestication history
| Contributor(s):: Benhaïm, David, Guyomard, René, Chatain, Béatrice, Quillet, Edwige, Bégout, Marie-Laure
Because captivity constitutes a drastic environmental change, domestication is expected to induce a rapid genetic selection for behavioural traits. In this study, we searched for genetic differences in behaviour among brown trout juveniles from two strains differing for their domestication...
Trainability and boldness traits differ between dog breed clusters based on conventional breed categories and genetic relatedness
| Contributor(s):: Turcsán, Borbála, Kubinyi, Enikő, Miklósi, Ádám
Modern dog breeding has given rise to more than 400 breeds differing both in morphology and behaviour. Traditionally, kennel clubs have utilized an artificial category system based on the morphological similarity and historical function of each dog breed. Behavioural comparisons at the...
Sex influences rat personality more than geographical origin
| Contributor(s):: Korpela, Katri
The Norway rat is an indispensable model organism. Behavioral studies on rats usually concentrate on a single trait without considering how different behaviors are linked to each other and whether there are differences in this respect between rat strains or sexes. This study aims to describe the...
The effect of domestication and ontogeny in swine cognition (Sus scrofa scrofa and S. s. domestica)
| Contributor(s):: Albiach-Serrano, Anna, Bräuer, Juliane, Cacchione, Trix, Zickert, Nele, Amici, Federica
Domesticated animals show physical, behavioural and cognitive differences from their closest wild relatives. This may have resulted from the former's long and continued selection by humans throughout history, but in some cases it could just reflect developmental differences between wild and...
Early life behavioural differences in wild caught and domesticated sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax)
| Contributor(s):: Benhaïm, David, Péan, Samuel, Lucas, Gaël, Blanc, Nancy, Chatain, Béatrice, Bégout, Marie-Laure
Behavioural studies comparing hatchery and wild-caught fish are useful to improve selection for aquaculture and restocking programmes. We examined swimming behaviour characteristics in wild captured and domesticated sea bass juveniles before and after eliciting a startle response at 8 different...
Horse Paleogenomes and Human-Animal Interactions in Prehistory
| Contributor(s):: Perry, G. H., Makarewicz, C. A.
A new analysis of paleogenomic data from 278 ancient horses (Fages et al. Cellhttp://doi.org/10.1016/j.cell.2019.03.049) finds that this animal - crucially important to many ancient and contemporary human societies for subsistence, transportation, conflict, and more - was domesticated in at least...
Evolution of facial muscle anatomy in dogs
| Contributor(s):: Kaminski, J., Waller, B. M., Diogo, R., Hartstone-Rose, A., Burrows, A. M.
Domestication shaped wolves into dogs and transformed both their behavior and their anatomy. Here we show that, in only 33,000 y, domestication transformed the facial muscle anatomy of dogs specifically for facial communication with humans. Based on dissections of dog and wolf heads, we show that...

More eggs but less social and more fearful? Differences in behavioral traits in relation to the phylogenetic background and productivity level in laying hens
| Contributor(s):: Dudde, Anissa, Schrader, Lars, Weigend, Steffen, Matthews, Lindsay R., Krause, E. Tobias
Different lines of laying hens have undergone a strong selection pressure for productivity traits, which has been proposed as a potential cause of undesirable side effects like behavioural disorders. One reason for such behavioral changes might be due to energy trade-offs, as high productive...
