  8. Locking down the impact of New Zealand's COVID-19 alert level changes on pets

    Full-text: Available

    Contributor(s):: Esam, F., Forrest, R., Waran, N.

    The influence of the COVID-19 pandemic on human-pet interactions within New Zealand, particularly during lockdown, was investigated via two national surveys. In Survey 1, pet owners (n = 686) responded during the final week of the five-week Alert Level 4 lockdown (highest level of restrictions -...

  9. Dog-human behavioral synchronization: family dogs synchronize their behavior with child family members

  12. Behavioural variation among divergent European and North American farmed and wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) populations

    Contributor(s):: Islam, Shahinur S., Wringe, Brendan F., Bradbury, Ian R., Fleming, Ian A.

    Animals often display consistent differences in behaviours across situations and contexts. However, little is known about how behavioural traits might vary in a context-dependent manner, with selection favouring correlated sets of behaviours in particular types of environments. Comparative...

  13. Different regrouping schedules in semi group-housed rabbit does: Effects on agonistic behaviour, stress and lesions

    Contributor(s):: Braconnier, Michèle, Gómez, Yamenah, Gebhardt-Henrich, Sabine G.

    Although group housing of naturally social animals like rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) is desirable for ethical reasons, social conflicts can significantly increase the risk for injuries as well as stress incidences and negatively affect their welfare. A common housing system in Switzerland is...

  14. The ability of artisanal fishers to recognize the dolphins they cooperate with

    Contributor(s):: da Rosa, D. S. X., Hanazaki, N., Cantor, M., Simoes-Lopes, P. C., Daura-Jorge, F. G.

  15. Refuge use affects daily activity patterns in female Xenopus laevis

    Contributor(s):: Archard, Gabrielle A.

    The African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) is widely used for scientific research, but its ecology and behavior are poorly understood. In two experiments, the 24h activity patterns of female X. laevis were monitored. In the first, activity was determined both in the presence and absence of a...

  16. Interspecific interactions and welfare implications in mixed species communities of capuchin (Sapajus apella) and squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureus) over 3 years

    Contributor(s):: Buchanan-Smith, Hannah M., Griciute, Joana, Daoudi, Sophia, Leonardi, Rebecca, Whiten, Andrew

    Species have complex relationships with others in the wild, and some such as capuchin (Sapajus apella) and squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureus) naturally choose to associate with each other. There are a number of benefits of exhibiting such species in correspondingly mixed communities in captivity...

  17. Factors influencing the welfare of goats in small established groups during the separation and reintegration of individuals

    Contributor(s):: Patt, Antonia, Gygax, Lorenz, Wechsler, Beat, Hillmann, Edna, Palme, Rupert, Keil, Nina M.

    As a goat's separation from or reintegration into its group is likely to have an adverse effect on the welfare of both the separated goat and the remaining goats in the group, management procedures need to be carried out in a way that minimises their negative impact. In the present study, we...

  18. Dynamics of the access of captive domestic cats to a feed environmental enrichment item

    Contributor(s):: Damasceno, Juliana, Genaro, Gelson

    Providing feed enrichment to captive felids that are obligate carnivores is crucial for eliciting natural hunting behaviours. However, studies of the efficacy of enrichment techniques usually analyse the whole group, overlooking the different behaviours of individual animals towards the enriched...

  19. Behavioural and physiological reactions of goats confronted with an unfamiliar group either when alone or with two peers

    Contributor(s):: Patt, Antonia, Gygax, Lorenz, Wechsler, Beat, Hillmann, Edna, Palme, Rupert, Keil, Nina M.

    When introduced into a new herd, goats are confronted with unfamiliar animals. Their behavioural and physiological reactions during this confrontation are likely to differ depending on the presence or absence of familiar conspecifics (peers). To assess these reactions, we confronted 12 goats both...

  20. Association between taxonomic relatedness and interspecific mortality in captive ungulates

    Contributor(s):: Hanzlíková, Veronika, Pluháček, Jan, Čulík, Luděk

    Interspecific aggressive interactions are known among a variety of animals including ungulates. Nevertheless, most studies on interspecific interactions in ungulates involve case reports without testing any specific hypotheses. We tested two mutually exclusive hypotheses; that mortality rate in...
