Contributor(s):: Baker, K. C., Springer, D. A.
Although environmental enhancement plans for nonhuman primates vary between facilities, feeding enrichment represents a component of most programs. As part of a facility's feeding enrichment program, offering hand-fed food items by trained staff provides an opportunity for positive human...

Philosophical background of attitudes toward and treatment of invertebrates
Contributor(s):: Mather, J. A.
People who interact with or make decisions about invertebrate animals have an attitude toward them, although they may not have consciously worked it out. Three philosophical approaches underlie this attitude. The first is the contractarian, which basically contends that animals are only automata...

Death is a welfare issue
Contributor(s):: Yeates, J. W.
It is commonly asserted that "death is not a welfare issue" and this has been reflected in welfare legislation and policy in many countries. However, this creates a conflict for many who consider animal welfare to be an appropriate basis for decision-making in animal ethics but also consider that...

A behavioural comparison of gnotobiotic with normal neonate pigs, indicating stress in the former
Contributor(s):: Noyes, L.
Four features in the early environment and experience of gnotobiotic piglets which could be regarded as stressors were handling, temperature change, delay in initial feeding, and absence of maternal bonding and reassurance. Such factors are quite sufficient to account for behavioural differences...

Mirrors as potential environmental enrichment for individually housed laboratory mice
Mirrors have been suggested as a potential environmental enrichment for animals that are individually housed. The present study examined the influence of a mirror on the behaviour of individually housed laboratory mice. Sixteen mice were placed into apparatus comprised of two preference cages...
An ethological approach to housing requirements of golden hamsters, Mongolian gerbils and fat sand rats in the laboratory - a review
Contributor(s):: Sorensen, D. B., Krohn, T., Hansen, H. N., Ottesen, J. L., Hansen, A. K.
When housing hamsters and gerbils little has been done to identify the preferences of these species. The solitary nature of fat sand rats and hamsters is often discordant with housing practices in animal laboratories. This article provides a comparison of the behaviour of wild-living animals with...
