  4. A 'long-fuse domestication' of the horse? Tooth shape suggests explosive change in modern breeds compared to extinct populations and living Przewalski horses

    Contributor(s):: Krish Seetah, Andrea Cardini, Graeme Barker

    Archaeological and molecular data suggest that horses were domesticated comparatively recently, the genetic evidence indicating that this was from several maternal haplotypes but only a single paternal one.

  5. A case for a naturalistic perspective

    Contributor(s):: Paxton, D. W.

    This paper continues the debate on a unifying theory of the human-companion animal bond, begun in the first volume of Anthrozoos by Kidd and Kidd (1987:140-57).

    Contributor(s):: Paxton, D. W.

    Self-injurious behaviors (SIBs) are a welfare and practical concern in laboratory rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta), and may share a similar etiology to human SIBs. This review uses a Tinbergian perspective to investigate why rhesus monkeys perform SIBs. In addition to reviewing research...

  10. Abnormal repetitive behaviours in captive birds: a Tinbergian review

    Contributor(s):: Mellor, Emma, Brilot, Ben, Collins, Sarah

    Abnormal repetitive behaviours (ARBs) are associated with past, or present, welfare problems and are common elements of the behavioural repertoire of some captive animals, including birds.

  12. An evolutionary point of view of animal ethics

    Contributor(s):: Criscuolo, François, Sueur, Cédric

    The observation that animals may respond to the emotional states of conspecific or even heterospecific individuals is not new. After more than one century, the need to define what exactly non-human animals are able to feel and—from this starting point—rethink the legal status and place of animals...
