  5. Ethics, narrative, and agriculture: transforming agricultural practice through ecological imagination

    | Contributor(s):: Sanford, A. W.

    The environmental degradation caused by industrial agriculture, as well as the resulting social and health consequences, creates an urgency to rethink food production by expanding the moral imagination to include agricultural practices. Agricultural practices presume human use of the earth and...

  6. Genetically modified (GM) crops: precautionary science and conflicts of interests

    | Contributor(s):: Myhr, A. I., Traavik, T.

    Risk governance of GM plants and GM food products is presently subject to heated scientific and public controversies. Scientists and representatives of the biotechnology industry have dominated debates concerning safety issues. The public is suspicious with regard to the motives of scientists,...

  7. Naturalness and conservation in France

    | Contributor(s):: Schnitzler, A., Genot, J. C., Wintz, M., Hale, B. W.

    This article discusses the ecological and cultural criteria underlying the management practices for protected areas in France. It examines the evolution of French conservation from its roots in the 19th century, when it focused on the protection of scenic landscapes, to current times when the...

  8. Nature quality in organic farming: a conceptual analysis of considerations and criteria in a European context

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Tybirk, K., Alroe, H. F., Frederiksen, P.

    Nature quality in relation to farming is a complex field. It involves different traditions and interests, different views of what nature is, and different ways of valuing nature. Furthermore there is a general lack of empirical data on many aspects of nature quality in the farmed landscape. In...

  9. Non-native species do threaten the natural environment

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Simberloff, D.

    Sagoff [See Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics (2005) 18, 215-236] argues, against growing empirical evidence, that major environmental impacts of non-native species are unproven. However, many such impacts, including extinctions of both island and continental species, have both...

  10. A look at the ecotherapy research evidence

    | Contributor(s):: Chalquist, Craig

  11. A nature language: An agenda to catalog, save, and recover patterns of human

    | Contributor(s):: Kahn, Peter H., Jr., Ruckert, Jolina H., Severson, Rachel L., Reichert, Aimee L., Fowler, Erin

  12. Of equines and humans: Toward a new ecology

    | Contributor(s):: Garcia, Dulce M.

  13. Behaviour of badgers ( Meles meles ) in farm buildings: opportunities for the transmission of Mycobacterium bovis to cattle?

    | Contributor(s):: Tolhurst, B. A., Delahay, R. J., Walker, N. J., Ward, A. I., Roper, T. J.

    Eurasian badgers (Meles meles) are implicated in the transmission of bovine tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis) to cattle. Here we investigate potential spatio-temporal foci of opportunities for contact between badgers and cattle in farm buildings. We discuss the relative occurrence of different...

  14. Influences of immunocontraception on time budgets, social behavior, and body condition in feral horses

    | Contributor(s):: Ransom, J. I., Cade, B. S., Hobbs, N. T.

    Managers concerned with shrinking habitats and limited resources for wildlife seek effective tools for limiting population growth in some species. Fertility control is one such tool, yet little is known about its impacts on the behavioral ecology of wild, free-roaming animals. We investigated...

  15. A note on the behavior of feral cattle in the Chihuahuan Desert of Mexico

    | Contributor(s):: Hernandez, L., Barral, H., Halffter, G., Colon, S. S.

    Habitat use and behaviour of three feral cows were compared to three domestic cows in the Mapimi Biosphere Reserve, Chihuahuan Desert, where approximately 1000 feral cows were found on 151 000 ha. Feral cattle were found to represent an ecotype adapted to desert conditions. In comparison with...

  16. The influence of acidosis and live yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) supplementation on time-budget and feeding behaviour of dairy goats receiving two diets of differing concentrate proportion

    | Contributor(s):: Desnoyers, M., Giger-Reverdin, S., Sauvant, D., Bertin, G., Duvaux-Ponter, C.

    Increasing the percentage of concentrate in the diet can influence feeding behaviour of ruminants. It can also lead to subacute rumen acidosis and the addition of yeast to the rumen ecosystem might influence fermentation and subsequently help the ecosystem deal with the consequences of high...

  17. Animals in science: Some areas revisited

    | Contributor(s):: Bekoff, Marc, Gruen, Lori, Townsend, Susan E., Rollin, Bernard E.

    Every month for more than a decade I’ve posted a commentary to my website ( www.mmilani.com ) the majority of which deal with some facet of animal health, behavior the human-animal bond, and the...
