    Contributor(s):: Coon, Rachael E., Tucker, Cassandra B.

  2. Increasing foraging times with appetitive and consummatory foraging enrichment in grey parrots (Psittacus erithacus)

    Contributor(s):: Beekmans, M. H. C., Vinke, C. M., Maijer, A., de Haan, I., Schoemaker, N. J., Rodenburg, T. B., Kooistra, H. S., van Zeeland, Y. R. A.

  3. GeoDanceHive: An Operational Hive for Honeybees Dances Recording

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Galopin, Sylvain, Touya, Guillaume, Aupinel, Pierrick, Richard, Freddie-Jeanne

    Honeybees are known for their ability to communicate about resources in their environment. They inform the other foragers by performing specific dance sequences according to the spatial characteristics of the resource. The purpose of our study is to provide a new tool for honeybees dances...

  4. Do Eastern Gray Squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) use Human-provided Cues to Increase Foraging Success in Urban Landscapes?

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Aditya A. Mehta, Jeeva H. Rathnaweera

    The coexistence of humans with other animals in urban and suburban areas has given rise to a spectrum of agonistic and beneficial interactions. Animals thriving in urban settings are known to exhibit superior foraging and food extraction abilities compared to their wild conspecifics. This has...

  5. Shelter fidelity and exploratory behaviours of juvenile Haliotis discus hannai in response to different stressors

    | Contributor(s):: Hou, Xuguang, Duan, Ruize, Qiu, Huiyun, Guo, Zhansheng, Mei, Junxue

  6. Turbidity derived from palm oil mill effluent alters feeding ability of male siamese fighting fish (Betta splendens, Regan 1910)

    | Contributor(s):: Zulfahmi, Ilham, Batubara, Agung Setia, Perdana, Adli Waliul, Andalia, Ade Putri, Nuzulli, Dian, Hidayat, Muslich, Nur, Firman M., Sumon, Kizar Ahmed, Rahman, Mohammad Mahmudur

  7. Behavioral Implications of Enrichment for Golden Lion Tamarins: A Tool for Ex Situ Conservation

    | Contributor(s):: Sanders, Kimberly, Fernandez, Eduardo J.

  8. Feeding time in horses provided roughage in different combinations of haynets and on the stable floor

    | Contributor(s):: Lundqvist, Hanna, Elisabeth Müller, Cecilia

  9. Diurnal observations of feeding choices in grazing horses correctly predict their daily diet composition

    | Contributor(s):: Fleurance, Géraldine, Rossignol, Nicolas, Dumont, Bertrand

  10. The influence of prior experience on food preference by sheep exposed to unfamiliar feeds and flavors

    | Contributor(s):: Pedernera, Mariana, Vulliez, Alejandra, Villalba, Juan J.

  11. How do humans impact yellow-bellied marmots? An integrative analysis

    | Contributor(s):: Morgan, Alyssa, Monclús, Raquel, Nelson, Julia, Foli, Eliza, Chunwang, Li, Blumstein, Daniel T.

    While many studies document specific human impacts on the behaviour and physiological responses of wildlife to humans, most have focused on these responses independently and over relatively short periods of time. To address this, we studied a suite of responses in yellow-bellied marmots (Marmota...

  12. From the get-go: Dietary exposure in utero and in early life alters dietary preference in later life

    | Contributor(s):: Garrett, K., Marshall, C. J., Beck, M. R., Fleming, A., Maxwell, T. M. R., Logan, C. M., Greer, A. W., Gregorini, P.

    The objectives were to determine the effect of in utero and early-life dietary exposure to a diverse diet or a perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) diet on grazing behavior and dietary neophobia of lambs ~3.5 months post-weaning (weaned at 6 weeks of age). Sixty-four Coopworth lambs (152.5...

  13. A systematic review o f the potential uses of on-animal sensors to monitor the welfare of sheep evaluated using the Five Domains Model as a framework

    | Contributor(s):: Fogarty, E. S., Swain, D. L., Cronin, G. M., Trotter, M.

  14. Effects of environment and breed on growth performance and meat quality of fattening pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Li, J., Han, Q., Liu, R., Wen, P., Ji, W., Pan, L., Wang, C., Zhao, P., Liu, H., Bao, J.

  15. On-farm testing of dairy calves' avoidance response to human approach effects of sex, age and test order

    | Contributor(s):: Ellingsen-Dalsjau, K., Dean, K. R., Rousing, T.

  16. Speaking from experience: Reduced dietary neophobia of lambs through early life experience

    | Contributor(s):: Beck, M. R., Garrett, K., Marshall, C. J., Fleming, A. E., Greer, A. W., Bunt, C. R., Olejar, K. J., Maxwell, T. M. R., Gregorini, P.

    The objective of this experiment was to determine how early life exposure to plant extracts would influence grazing behavior and dietary preference. This experiment used ram lambs (n = 60; initial body weight = 41.8 ± 3.8 kg, mean ± standard deviation). Their dams were either...

  17. Behavioral patterns of yaks (Bos grunniens) grazing on alpine shrub meadows of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau

    | Contributor(s):: Yang, Chuntao, Tsedan, Guru, Fan, Qingshan, Wang, Shulin, Wang, Zhaofeng, Chang, Shenghua, Hou, Fujiang

    Proliferation of shrubs at the expense of native forage in pastures has been associated with large changes in biomass and spatial distribution of forage for grazing livestock, and such changes influence the grazing behavior of ruminants. However, little information is available concerning the...

  18. Effects of access to hay on cognition of pre-weaned dairy calves and behavior upon social grouping after weaning

    | Contributor(s):: Horvath, Kelsey C., Gingerich, Katie N., Hixson, Catherine L., Miller-Cushon, Emily K.

    Individually housed dairy calves typically have restrictive environments which could lead to detrimental effects on cognition. We hypothesized that providing calves with hay prior to weaning, in addition to a standard starter diet and milk, would improve cognitive ability and influence adaptation...

  19. Motivation for feeding in broiler breeder pullets fed different types of restricted high-fibre diets

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Riber, Anja B., Tahamtani, Fernanda M.

    High-fibre diets have been suggested as alternative feeding strategies that potentially may alleviate the hunger felt by feed-restricted broiler breeders and fulfil their behavioural need for feeding behaviour. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of four dietary...

  20. On-Farm Evaluation of an Automatic Enrichment Device with Maize Silage for Laying Hens

    | Contributor(s):: Giersberg, Mona Franziska, Kemper, Nicole, Spindler, Birgit

    Challenges in alternative housing for laying hens are barren functional areas such as winter gardens and the occurrence of behavioral disorders. Environmental enrichment is a measure to deal with these problems. Therefore, an enrichment device offering maize silage automatically was tested in two...
