    | Contributor(s):: Ramos, Amandine, Bousquet, Christophe A. H., Sueur, Cédric

    In increasingly anthropized landscapes, it is essential to understand animal behaviour, and especially the movement patterns of domestic and wild species to ensure their management and conservation. More specifically, cohabitation between human populations and wildlife could be improved through...

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Pérez-Torres, Libia, Averós, Xavier, Estevez, Inma, Rubio, Ivette, Corro, Manuel, Clemente, Neftalí, Orihuela, Agustín

    To investigate whether zebu (Bos indicus) cows organize in different social groups according to their physiological state, cow–cow and cow–calf distances were measured. A single herd of 31 multiparous cows around parturition was observed for 6 weeks. Through the evaluation period,...

  14. Association patterns of visually-observed cattle on Montana, USA foothill rangelands

    | Contributor(s):: Stephenson, Mitchell B., Bailey, Derek W., Jensen, Delyn

    Cattle on extensive rangelands typically graze in smaller groups rather than as one large herd. The objective of this study was to examine the strength of social associations among cattle in different sized herds. Associations among individual pairs of cows (i.e., dyads) on rangelands were...

  15. How do free-ranging domestic herbivores reduce competition within owner-determined herds?

    | Contributor(s):: Kraai, Manqhai, Shrader, Adrian M.

    Group size and competition are key drivers of foraging behaviour in social animals. With seasonal changes in food quality and availability, comes changes in the type (scramble or interference) and degree of competition (aggression or none). One way that animals can deal with these variations is...

  16. Human/Farm Animal Relationships
