  7. Human ability to interpret alpaca body language

    | Contributor(s):: Kapustka, J., Budzynska, M.

    In recent years, the interest in the rearing and use of alpacas (Vicugna pacos) has been increasing. However, the number of scientific articles on the behavioral traits of this animal species is still limited. The aim of the study was to determine the human ability to read the body language of...

    The purpose of this project was to develop dance/movement therapy (DMT) interventions incorporating therapy dogs with the goal of increasing present moment awareness in adults diagnosed with psychotic disorders. Individual interviews were held with two therapy dog handlers who served as...

  10. Free-Riders in the Nonprofit Industrial Complex: The Problem of Flexitarianism

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Wrenn, C. L.

    Social movements have traditionally viewed free-riders as a problem for effective mobilization, but under the influence of the nonprofit industrial complex, it is possible that movements actively facilitate their presence. Free-riders become an economic resource to professionalized movements...

  11. Testing ultra-wideband technology as a method of tracking fast-growing broilers under commercial conditions

    | Contributor(s):: Baxter, Mary, O’Connell, Niamh E.

    Ultra-wideband (UWB) is an indoor positioning technology that has several advantages over current methods of tracking indoor reared broiler chickens, including providing long-term data on movement patterns without the effect of observer presence. More information is needed on the accuracy of this...

  13. Cow in Motion: A review of the impact of housing systems on movement opportunity of dairy cows and implications on locomotor activity

    | Contributor(s):: Shepley, Elise, Lensink, Joop, Vasseur, Elsa

    As humans, we recognize the importance of exercise. We go to the gym, walk our dogs, and ride our horses. Even our hamsters get a wheel to run on. Considering this, it is surprising that, when it comes to the production animals that make up the bulk of domestic animals, the concept of ‘exercise’...

    | Contributor(s):: Patoka, Jiří, Vejtrubová, Markéta, Vrabec, Vladimír, Masopustová, Renata

    The aardvark is popular in many zoological gardens in the European Union. These creatures are nocturnal, and aardvarks in the wild are known to walk distances of 4 km to 7 km per night. Despite what is known about their biology, most aardvarks are kept in zoological gardens in indoor enclosures...
