HABRI Central - Tags: maternal care

The Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) is issuing a call for research proposals from institutions and organizations across the globe to investigate the health outcomes of pet ownership and/or animal-assisted interventions (AAI), both for the people and the animals involved.

  1. Behavior of addax (Addax nasomaculatus) and Arabian oryx (Oryx leucoryx) mothers and calves during the calves’ first day of life

  2. Effects of Training for First Milking Involving Positive Tactile Stimulation on Post-Calving Maternal Behaviors in Primiparous Gyr Dairy Cows

    | Contributor(s):: Vicentini, Rogério Ribeiro, El Faro, Lenira, Ujita, Aska, Ceballos, Maria Camila, Negrão, João Alberto, Sant’Anna, Aline Cristina

    In dairy systems with Zebu breeds, calves are not immediately separated from their dams after calving; consequently, maternal care and protective behavior are important, influencing both productive performance and stockpeople’s safety. Our objectives were to: (1) investigate the effects of...

  3. Consequences of nescient mating: Artificial insemination increases cub rejection in the giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca)

    | Contributor(s):: Li, Ming Fei, Swaisgood, Ronald R., Owen, Megan A., Zhang, Hemin, Zhang, Guiquan, Qiu, Jian, Martin, Meghan S.

    Artificial insemination (AI) is a valuable tool for conservation breeding programs as it can promote reproductive success and genetic diversity in species with decreasing populations. However, females that undergo AI do not experience natural mating events, which we term, “nescient...

  4. Social distancing: High population density increases cub rejection and decreases maternal care in the giant panda

    | Contributor(s):: Ciminelli, Giulia, Martin, Meghan S., Swaisgood, Ronald R., Zhang, Guiquan, Guo, Li, Owen, Megan A.

    In conservation breeding centers, individuals are often housed in close proximity with an artificially high-population density. For many solitary species, these housing arrangements are in direct contrast to in-situ conditions. High-population density during pregnancy may lead to perceived...

  5. The role of genes, epigenetics and ontogeny in behavioural development

    | Contributor(s):: Rodenburg, T. Bas

    This review focuses on the role of genes, epigenetics and ontogeny in behavioural development of animals. The behavioural characteristics of an individual are determined by its genes and by its physical and social environment. Not only the individual's early life and current environment are of...

  6. Maternal nest building and choice of nest site are temperature dependent in mink: Parent-offspring temperature conflict?

    | Contributor(s):: Schou, Toke Munk, Malmkvist, Jens

    We investigated whether nest building and nest site preference are temperature dependent in female mink. We designed two experiments: in Experiment 1, female mink had access to unheated (7 °C, Room7C group) or heated (25 °C, Heated25C group) nest boxes; in Experiment 2,...

  7. Influence of morning maternal care on the behavioural responses of 8-week-old Beagle puppies to new environmental and social stimuli

    | Contributor(s):: Guardini, Giovanna, Mariti, Chiara, Bowen, Jon, Fatjó, Jaume, Ruzzante, Silvia, Martorell, Adrià, Sighieri, Claudio, Gazzano, Angelo

    In mammals, maternal care represents a major constituent of the early-life environment and its influence on individual development has been documented in rodents, non-human primates, humans and recently in adult dogs. The quality and quantity of mother-offspring interactions exerts a multilevel...

  8. Influence of Maternal Care on Behavioural Development of Domestic Dogs (Canis Familiaris) Living in a Home Environment

    | Contributor(s):: Giovanna Guardini, Jon Bowen, Chiara Mariti, Jaume Fatjo, Claudio Sighieri, Angelo Gazzano

    Maternal care has been shown to affect the development of the brain, behaviour, social skills and emotional systems of the young of many mammalian species including dogs. The aim of the present study was to determine the effects of maternal care on the behavioural responses of family dog puppies...
