  3. Effects of captivity on house mice behaviour in a novel environment: Implications for conservation practices

    Contributor(s):: Courtney Jones, Stephanie K., Munn, Adam J., Byrne, Phillip G.

    Captive breeding programmes offer a method for preventing the extinction of threatened species, but often have difficulty establishing self-sustaining populations and generating individuals for release. This difficulty can arise because the behaviour of captive-reared animals differs from wild...

  4. Associations of Pet Ownership with Older Adults Eating Patterns and Health

    | Contributor(s):: Roschelle Heuberger

    Pet ownership has been shown to improve quality of life for older adults. The objective of this cross-sectional study was to compare older pet owners and older non-pet owners and assess differences between groups. This study was conducted on adults over 50 years of age, who owned either one cat...

  5. Neural correlates for perception of companion animal photographs

    | Contributor(s):: Hayama, S., Chang, L., Gumus, K., King, G. R., Ernst, T.

    Anthrozoological neuroscience, which we propose as the use of neuroscience techniques to study human-animal interaction, may help to elucidate mechanisms underlying the associated psychological, physiological, and other purported health effects. This preliminary study investigates the neural...

    The adjacency of 2 marine biogeographic regions off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina (NC), and the proximity of the Gulf Stream result in a high biodiversity of species from northern and southern provinces and from coastal and pelagic habitats. We examined spatiotemporal patterns of marine mammal...

  10. Phylogeny, convergence, and snake behavior

    | Contributor(s):: Harry Walter Greene

    Comparative studies of snake behavior were used to confront three related conceptual issues in ethology: (i) Can behavior evolve? (ii) If so, how can the origins of similarities and differences in behavior among animals be assessed? (iii) What is the significance of this information for...

  17. Feeding and sleep patterns prior to and post parturition

    | Contributor(s):: Ruckebusch, Y.

    Continuous recordings of jaw movements and sleep patterns (eye movement), were made on 2 cows aged 4 yr, before calving and during early lactation. Calves were separated from their dams immediately after birth and the cows were milked 2 X daily at 9 am and 5 pm during which time they received...

  18. Cattle with hair whorl patterns above the eyes are more behaviorally agitated during restraint

    | Contributor(s):: Grandin, T., Deesing, M. J., Struthers, J. J., Swinker, A. M.

    1500 cattle weighing 180-360 kg were temperament rated on a 4-point scale to determine whether hair whorl position on the forehead is related to a calm temperament. 72% of the cattle were European x British breed crosses and 28% were zebu x dairy breed crosses from Mexico. Cattle with a round...

  19. Characteristic activity patterns of female mouflons ( Ovis orientalis musimon ) in the lambing period

    | Contributor(s):: Langbein, J., Streich, J., Scheibe, K. M.

    The activity pattern of wild mouflon sheep (Ovis orientalis musimon) during the lambing season was observed in a nature reserve in Brandenburg, Germany, during 1995 (n = 5) and 1996 (n = 6). Activity data was recorded automatically by the storage-telemetry-system, ETHOSYS. The animals were...

  20. The influence of social hierarchy on the time budget of cows and their visits to an automatic milking system

    | Contributor(s):: Ketelaar-de Lauwere, C. C., Devir, S., Metz, J. H. M.

    The effects of social dominance on dairy cows' (crossbred Holstein-Friesian; n = 30) visits to an automatic milking system (AMS) and their daily activity pattern was studied. Cows were fed on concentrate and milked in the AMS, which consisted of 2 selection units (sending cows for milking or back...
