  3. The introductory study concerning human-animal relations in Warsaw Zoological Garden - the case of chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes)

    Contributor(s):: Kaleta, T., Tumialis, D., Malodobra, M.

    The behaviour of chimpanzees and zoo visitors directed at each other were observed in Warsaw Zoo, Poland, during September 1999-April 2000 and July-September 2003. The aggressive displays and non-aggressive begging were the main types of behaviour performed by apes. When imitating humans,...

  4. The mirror has two faces: contradictory reflections of donkeys in Western literature from Lucius to Balthazar. (Special issue: Minding animals: Emerging issues concerning our relationships with other animals.)

    Contributor(s):: Bough, J.

    How we represent animals both reflects our attitudes towards them and affects our treatment of them. The donkey has lived alongside humans, bearing their burdens since the time of their domestication over 10,000 years ago. Despite this, they have invariably enjoyed a low status in human cultures,...

  5. The role of animals in the corpus of engraved graffiti on chruch walls in Parisian basin (16th-18th cent.)

  8. Behaviour to the human as a individuality of the milking cows

    Contributor(s):: Shuji, Y.

    The importance of dairy cattle behaviour towards humans was examined. 17 milking cows of Niigata University Muramatsu Station were investigated. The behaviours to one human inside of cowshed and in the pasture were examined. Responses to the behaviour which the human did to the cows, the...

    Contributor(s):: Lit, L., Schweitzer, J. B., Oberbauer, A. M.

  11. Do pets influence the quantity and choice of food offered to them by their owners: lessons from other animals and the pre-verbal human infant?

    Contributor(s):: Day, J. E. L., Kergoat, S., Kotrschal, K.

    All social animals influence each other's behaviour. One area of particular interest is the social interaction that occurs between pets and their owners. Within pet-owner dyads, food and feeding are always part of the dyadic ritual. In this review, we hypothesize that feeding can be considered to...

  12. Does exposure to dogs and cats in the first year of life influence the development of allergic sensitization?

    Contributor(s):: Ownby, D. R., Johnson, C. C.

    Purpose of review: The goal of the review is to place studies published after 1 June 2002, concerning the relationship between early life exposure to cats and dogs and the later development of allergy, within the context of the effects of other environmental exposures on allergic disease. Recent...

  13. Dogs catch human yawns

    Contributor(s):: Joly-Mascheroni, R. M., Senju, A., Shepherd, A. J.

    This study is the first to demonstrate that human yawns are possibly contagious to domestic dogs (Canis familiaris). Twenty-nine dogs observed a human yawning or making control mouth movements. Twenty-one dogs yawned when they observed a human yawning, but control mouth movements did not elicit...

  14. Domestication and behaviour

    Contributor(s):: Goldberg, J.

    The domestication of animal species has led to complex relations with humans entailing profound transformations, especially at the behavioural level. It is a rather difficult task to answer the question of whether the wild ancestors of a given domestic form were in some way preadapted to...

  15. Effect of temperament and behavioural reactions to the presence of a human during the pre-mating period on reproductive performance in farmed mink ( Mustela vison )

    Contributor(s):: Korhonen, H. T., Jauhiainen, L., Rekila, T.

    The present study sought to evaluate the relationship between temperament, pre-mating behaviour and reproductive performance in farmed female mink (Mustela vison). Temperament was measured by using a stick test and behavioural reactions to the presence of a human during pre-mating period by a...

  16. Ethics and animal welfare in wild primates

    Contributor(s):: Oliveira, M. A. B. de

    The concept of 'ethics' is usually applied, among primates, to humans only. This article argues that it should also be applied to non-human primates. Brazil is the 'guardian' of the most rich and diverse - and threatened - fauna of non-human primates in the world. Of 103 recognized species, 26...

    Contributor(s):: Katcher, A. H., Rosenberg, M. A.

  18. Exploratory behaviour in domestic cats ( Felis silvestris catus Linnaeus, 1758): a review

    Contributor(s):: Machado, J. C., Genaro, G.

    It is possible to understand exploratory behaviour as an activity sponsored by a new stimulus, which consists in acts and postures that enable to collect information about an object or an unfamiliar environment. The exploration has strong implications for the survival of the individual and of its...

  19. Facilitating companion animal death

    Contributor(s):: Lagoni, L., Butler, C.

    This article describes suggested preparation of owners who wish to be present during euthanasia; euthanasia logistics; facilitating owner-present euthanasia, and aftercare of the owners. It is concluded that when euthanasia is skillfully and sensitively planned and performed, the experience may...

  20. Factors associated with dog ownership and contact with dogs in a UK community

    Contributor(s):: Westgarth, C., Pinchbeck, G. L., Bradshaw, J. W. S., Dawson, S., Gaskell, R. M., Christley, R. M.

    Background: Dogs are popular pets in many countries. Identifying differences between those who own dogs or have contact with dogs, and those who do not, is useful to those interested in the human-animal bond, human health and for provision of veterinary services. This census-based,...
