Activity Budgets of Captive Cape Fur Seals (Arctocephalus pusillus) Under a Training Regime
Contributor(s):: Wierucka, Kaja, Siemianowska, Sonia, Woźniak, Marta, Jasnosz, Katarzyna, Kieliszczyk, Magdalena, Kozak, Paulina, Sergiel, Agnieszka
Ethograms and time budgets are crucial for the behavioral assessment of nonhuman animals in zoos, and they serve as references for welfare research. This study was conducted to obtain detailed time budgets of trained Cape fur seals (Arctocephalus pusillus) in captivity, to evaluate variations of...
In pursuit of “normal”: A review of the behaviour of cattle at pasture
Contributor(s):: Kilgour, Robert J.
One of the “Five Freedoms” proposed by the Farm Animal Welfare Council in Great Britain is that animals should be free to express normal behaviour. For various domesticated species, the study of still-existing wild ancestors has been one approach in the definition of normal. However, for...
Towards a taxonomy of stereotypic behaviours in the American mink (Neovison vison), a model Carnivore: Homogeneous or heterogeneous?
Contributor(s):: Polanco, Andrea, Campbell, Dana L. M., Díez-León, María, Mason, Georgia
Stereotypic behaviours (SBs) are sometimes assumed homogeneous, despite their diverse morphologies, as if sharing a common aetiology. However, if different SB forms are instead heterogeneous, they may have different causes, potentially impacting how best to prevent or manage them. We therefore...
The role of the ethogram in equitation science
Contributor(s):: Hall, Carol, Heleski, Camie
The development of a comprehensive ethogram that could be used to record the behaviour of the ridden horse in a range of different scenarios would provide a valuable resource for researchers within equitation science. However, the relevance of the behaviours included in such an ethogram and...
Social behaviour of endangered European mink (Mustela lutreola) litters in captivity
Contributor(s):: Kiik, Kairi, Maran, Tiit, Kneidinger, Nadja, Tammaru, Toomas
In litter-bearing mammals, the environment and social interactions during early life often have a substantial effect on future behaviour of the animal. Most information though derives from lab rodents, pets or farm animals while comparable data are scarce for non-domesticated species, and...
