  2. Different LED light colors modify behavior, physiology, and hypothalamic CRF and NPY mRNA expression in Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix Japonica)

    | Contributor(s):: Elbaz, Bassant A., Fares, I. M., Ahmed, Ali M., Hegab, Ibrahim M.

    Light color is a potent environmental factor that can directly affect bird welfare. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of different light-emitting diode (LED) colors on behavior, physiology, and hypothalamic cortico-tropine-releasing factor (CRF) and neuropeptide-Y (NPY) mRNA gene...

  6. Historical development of horse breeds

    | Contributor(s):: Tuncer, S. S., Kozat, S.

    This study was conducted to examine the historical development process of modern horse breeds. Horses are among the few species that have managed to become domesticated on earth. The domestication of horses took place after dogs, goats, sheep, pigs, reindeer and poultry. It is accepted that the...

  7. Analysis of Genetic Diversity in the Czech Spotted Dog

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Karolína Machová, Anita Kranjˇceviˇcová, Luboš Vostrý, Emil Krupa

    Loss off genetic diversity negatively affects most of the modern dog breeds. However, no breed created strictly for laboratory purposes has been analyzed so far. In this paper, we sought to explore by pedigree analysis exactly such a breed—the Czech Spotted Dog (CSD). The pedigree...

    | Contributor(s):: Wellman, Hannah P.

    Tribal ancestors living on the Oregon coast prior to European contact were skilled fisher-hunter-gatherers residing in a rich environment, home to diverse marine mammals. Euro-Americans over-exploited these marine mammals and drove some species to near extinction. Some marine mammal populations...

    | Contributor(s):: Pamela Wiener, Marie J. Haskell

    The study of dog personality is of general academic interest and also has applications for the management of both working dogs and pets. However, acquiring direct behavioral assessments of large numbers of animals is both time consuming and logistically difficult. An alternative approach that...
