  2. Using behaviour to assess animal welfare

    Contributor(s):: Dawkins, M. S.

    Rather than construct lists of many different welfare indicators and give each of them the same weight, I argue that the assessment of animal welfare should be directed at answering two key questions: (1) Are the animals healthy?

  3. Using science to support ethical decisions promoting humane livestock slaughter and vertebrate pest control

    Contributor(s):: Mellor, D. J., Littin, K. E.

    How can we make sense of the fact that we live in a world where good people co-exist in silence about widespread animal suffering.
