    Contributor(s):: da Silva, Camila B. Fernandes, Filho, Elson R. Tavares, Pimentel, Tatiana C., Pagani, Monica M., Marsico, Eliane T., Cruz, Adriano G., Esmerino, Erick A.

  2. Biomedical research with a Caribbean one-health perspective

    Contributor(s):: Cheetham, S., Stone, D., Marancik, D., Kaplan, R. M., Olson, N. C.

  3. Living with Bees: A Look into The Relationships Between People and Native Bees in Western Nepal

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Alexandra Cobb

    Nepal is home to four native species of bees and as many methods to produce and gather their honey. In recent decades, several domestic and international organizations and governments have researched bee populations and provided financial and technical support through subsidies, trainings, and...

  4. Information Theory Opens New Dimensions in Experimental Studies of Animal Behaviour and Communication

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Reznikova, Zhanna

    Over the last 40–50 years, ethology has become increasingly quantitative and computational. However, when analysing animal behavioural sequences, researchers often need help finding an adequate model to assess certain characteristics of these sequences while using a relatively small number...

  5. A Data-Driven Simulation of the Trophallactic Network and Intranidal Food Flow Dissemination in Ants

    | Contributor(s):: Bles, Olivier, Deneubourg, Jean-Louis, Sueur, Cédric, Nicolis, Stamatios C.

    Food sharing can occur in both social and non-social species, but it is crucial in eusocial species, in which only some group members collect food. This food collection and the intranidal (i.e., inside the nest) food distribution through trophallactic (i.e., mouth-to-mouth) exchanges are...

  6. Health comparison between guinea pigs raised in uncontrolled and controlled environments

    | Contributor(s):: Laksmindra, Fitria, Nastiti, Wijayanti, Tuty, Arisuryanti, Salasia, S. I. O.

  7. Shelter use by horses during summer in relation to weather conditions and horsefly (Tabanidae) prevalence

    | Contributor(s):: Christensen, Janne Winther, Andersen, Agnete Gargulak, Skovbo, Karina Nymark, Skovgård, Henrik

  8. Insect-repelling behaviour in horses in relation to insect prevalence and access to shelters

    | Contributor(s):: Christensen, Janne Winther, Strøm, Christina Gudim, Nicová, Klára, de Gaillard, Clotilde Lafaige, Sandøe, Peter, Skovgård, Henrik

  9. Wouldn't hurt a fly? A review of insect cognition and sentience in relation to their use as food and feed

    | Contributor(s):: Lambert, Helen, Elwin, Angie, D’Cruze, Neil

    Globally, there is increasing pressure to find solutions for feeding the growing human population. One of the proposed answers to this problem is to farm edible insects, both for human consumption and as feed for domesticated livestock. But what do we know about these miniature livestock? Are...

  10. Time spent in post-feeding activities including feed preference by different weight groups of marron (Cherax cainii, Austin 2002) under laboratory conditions

    | Contributor(s):: Tulsankar, Smita S., Cole, Anthony J., Gagnon, Marthe Monique, Fotedar, Ravi

  11. Evaluation of the Effectiveness of the Oregon Master Beekeeper Program

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Carolyn Breece, Ramesh Sagili

    The Oregon Master Beekeeper Program has been educating beekeepers since 2012. We surveyed program participants to evaluate the effectiveness of the training on beekeeping knowledge, confidence, and community involvement. The survey results showed positive changes in beekeepers, especially due...

  12. Provisioning of live black soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens) benefits broiler activity and leg health in a frequency- and dose-dependent manner

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Ipema, Allyson F., Gerrits, Walter J. J., Bokkers, Eddie A. M., Kemp, Bas, Bolhuis, J. Elizabeth

    Fast-growing broilers spend most their time inactive and are therefore prone to experience leg problems. Environmental enrichment that facilitates intrinsically motivated behaviours can potentially promote activity and reduce leg problems, thereby improving broiler welfare. A promising...

  13. Adolescents’ Experience and Knowledge of, and Attitudes toward, Bees: Implications and Recommendations for Conservation

    | Contributor(s):: Silva, Alexandra, Minor, Emily S.

    Invertebrates are generally regarded with apathy, distaste, and fear in Western society. These negative sentiments likely contribute to the disparity in wildlife conservation efforts, which largely favor vertebrate organisms. Bees represent one of the most ecologically and economically important...

  14. 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...

  15. Local Insects as Flagship Species to Promote Nature Conservation? A Survey among Primary School Children on Their Attitudes toward Invertebrates

    | Contributor(s):: Schlegel, Jürg, Breuer, Gabriele, Rupf, Reto

    Flagship species play an important role in promoting nature conservation. However, although the significance of invertebrates in biodiversity and ecosystem services is undisputed, they are rarely used as flagship species. A focused approach to better understand the drivers of differences in...

  16. Human-Insect Relationships: An ANTless Story? Children's, Adolescents', and Young Adults' Ways of Characterizing Social Insects

    | Contributor(s):: Sammet, Rebecca, Andres, Heike, Dreesmann, Daniel

    Ants may serve as powerful model organisms for uncovering principles of insect biology and social behavior. The aim of this study was to provide a quantitative analysis of secondary-school students' perceptions and knowledge of ants. It was part of a longitudinal project based on the concept of...

  17. Addressing pain caused by mulesing in sheep

    | Contributor(s):: Fisher, Andrew D.

    The surgical operation of mulesing cuts wool-bearing and wrinkled skin from the perineal region and adjoining hindquarters of Australian Merino sheep, and has been shown in combination with tail docking to provide significantly enhanced protection against flystrike for the remainder of the...

  18. Sprinkler flow rate affects dairy cattle preferences, heat load, and insect deterrence behavior

    | Contributor(s):: Chen, Jennifer M., Schütz, Karin E., Tucker, Cassandra B.

    Sprinklers provide benefits for cattle, such as reducing heat load and possibly deterring insects. However, the use of this resource by cows varies across studies. Some of this variation may, in part, be explained by sprinkler flow rate. Higher flow rates provide greater heat abatement (desirable...

  19. Why I Keep Ants as Pets | Mikey Bustos | TEDxUPLB

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Mikey Bustos

    Mikey Bustos was born in Toronto, Canada and started raising ants and creating ant farms in his parents' basement. It led him to create the AntsCanada Youtube channel and AntsCanada.com, both promoting the pet ant keeping hobby, myrmecology, ecology, and habitat conservation. AntsCanada has...

  20. How you can help save the bees, one hive at a time | Noah Wilson-Rich

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Noah Wilson-Rich

    Bees are dying off in record numbers, but ecologist Noah Wilson-Rich is interested in something else: Where are bees healthy and thriving? To find out, he recruited citizen scientists across the US to set up beehives in their backyards, gardens and rooftops. Learn how these little data...
