Beautiful Bugs, Bothersome Bugs, and FUN Bugs: Examining Human Interactions with Insects and Other Arthropods
| Contributor(s):: Shipley, Nathan J., Bixler, Robert D.
Because the ostensible majority of incidental human–insect (and other arthropods) interactions are negative, any interest in non-pretty “bugs” appears to be inherently demotivated. Three complementary studies explored US college students’ perceptions, knowledge, and experiences of insects to...
Activity patterns in reindeer with domestic vs. wild ancestry
| Contributor(s):: Reimers, Eigil, Tsegaye, Diress, Colman, Jonathan E., Eftestøl, Sindre
We analyzed GPS-based activity patterns for two wild reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus) herds: Norefjell-Reinsjøfjell with domestic ancestry and larger average body size and Rondane with wild ancestry and smaller body sizes. We compared activity patterns and tested whether these could...

A new analysis of paleogenomic data from 278 ancient horses (Fages et al. Cellhttp://doi.org/10.1016/j.cell.2019.03.049) finds that this animal - crucially important to many ancient and contemporary human societies for subsistence, transportation, conflict, and more - was domesticated in at least...

Farm animals populate the next two sections: the cows and pigs reared within the built-up area, and the cattle and sheep driven into the heart of the city to be slaughtered. A recurrent theme of the book is the way in which urban growth actually increased interactions between animals and humans...

Assessing the effect of rate and extent of starch digestion in broiler and laying hen feeding behaviour
| Contributor(s):: Herwig, Eugenia, Classen, Henry L., Schwean-Lardner, Karen V.
Feeding behaviour can be affected by diet composition as a result of diet density, the rate and extent of ingredient digestion and the activation of nutrient sensing mechanisms. It was hypothezised that the presence of starch in the distal small intestine would activate the ileal brake, thereby...

Animal Bodies, Colonial Subjects: (Re)Locating Animality in Decolonial Thought
out of 5 stars
| Contributor(s):: Billy-Ray Belcourt
In this paper, I argue that animal domestication, speciesism, and other modern human-animal interactions in North America are possible because of and through the erasure of Indigenous bodies and the emptying of Indigenous lands for settler-colonial expansion. That is, we cannot address animal...
