Avian reactions towards human approaches in different urban greenery structures in Nanaimo
Contributor(s):: Campbell, M.
Urban green spaces are vital for human quality of life and urban avian ecology. In consequence, these areas attract cutting edge research on human/animal relations and the human roles in avian foraging grounds. However, few studies of bird reactions to human presence have included bird adaptation...

Attempts to control cougar ( Puma concolor) and culpeo fox ( Pseudalopex culpaeus) populations in Patagonia through poisoning, negatively affects grey foxes ( Pseudalopex griseus) and many other non-target species. It is therefore advisable to develop selective predator control methods. Among a...
Effect of pre-partum habituation to milking routine on behaviour and lactation performance of buffalo heifers
Contributor(s):: Polikarpus, A., Napolitano, F., Grasso, F., Palo, R. di, Zicarelli, F., Arney, D., Rosa, G. de
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect pre-partum habituation in the milking parlour on behaviour and lactation performance of buffalo heifers. Sixteen buffalo heifers in late gestation were used for this study. The animals, with an age ranging from 30 to 44 months at the start of...
Environmental subsidiarity as a guiding principle for forestry governance: application to payment for ecosystem services and REDD+ architecture
Contributor(s):: Anguita, P. M. de, Martin, M. A., Clare, A.
This article describes and proposes the "environmental subsidiarity principle" as a guiding ethical value in forestry governance. Different trends in environmental management such as local participation, decentralization or global governance have emerged in the last two decades at the global,...
The major welfare problems of dairy cows in French commercial farms: an epidemiological approach
Contributor(s):: Roches, A. de B. des, Veissier, I., Coignard, M., Bareille, N., Guatteo, R., Capdeville, J., Gilot-Fromont, E., Mounier, L.
Animal welfare enhancement requires that problems are reliably identified and ranked in order to prioritise corrective actions. Welfare problems vary with the conditions in which animals are maintained. The objectives were to highlight major welfare problems for dairy cows on farms in France, and...
Can stealing cows distort the results of feeding trials? An experiment for quantification and prevention of stealing feed by dairy cows from roughage intake control feeders
Contributor(s):: Ruuska, S., Hamalainen, W., Sairanen, A., Juutinen, E., Tuomisto, L., Jarvinen, M., Mononen, J.
Practical experience suggests that stealing behaviour of dairy cows may affect the results in feeding trials, when automated feed troughs are used for measuring and controlling the feed intake. The objectives of the present study were to analyse the stealing behaviour from the log data of the...
Dairy calves' adaptation to group housing with automated feeders
Contributor(s):: Fujiwara, M., Rushen, J., Passille, A. M. de
Group housing of dairy calves with automated milk feeders has likely welfare and labour saving advantages but delays in the calves adapting to the feeding system may reduce these advantages. We examined factors that influence calves' adaptation to the feeders. In Exp. 1, 77 Holstein calves were...

Land acquisitions in Tanzania: strong sustainability, weak sustainability and the importance of comparative methods
Contributor(s):: Purdon, M.
This paper distinguished different analytical approaches to the evaluation of the sustainability of large-scale land acquisitions - at both the conceptual and methodological levels. First, at the conceptual level, evaluation of the sustainability of land acquisitions depends on what definition of...
Re-capturing bovine life: robot-cow relationships, freedom and control in dairy farming
Contributor(s):: Holloway, L., Bear, C., Wilkinson, K.
Robotic milking machines are novel technologies that take over the labour of dairy farming and reduce the need for human-animal interactions. Replacing 'conventional' twice-a-day milking managed by people with a system that supposedly allows cows the freedom to be milked automatically whenever...
