  1. Human exploitation may not be the cause for the declining size of Patella vulgata (Common limpet): A comparison between the Late Norse and the modern populations of Patella vulgata at Sandwick Bay, Unst, Shetland Islands, UK

    Contributor(s):: Sarah Mae Brennan Silverberg

    Zooarchaeological artefacts like shells are a source of information on the exploitation of prehisotric the rocky intertidal zone. In this study the size and density of Patella vulgata was used to investigate the exploitation of rocky intertidal resources during the Late Norse occupation...

  12. Bears in Pakistan: Distribution, Population Biology and Human Conflicts

    Contributor(s):: Fakhar I. Abbas, Zahid Igbal Bhatti, Jibran Haider, Afsar Mian

    We conducted questionnaire based interviews (n = 1873) of respondents coming from 258 localities about bear tracts in northern parts of Pakistan in 2012-2014 to study Himalyan brown (U. arctos isalbellinus) and Himalayan black (U. t. laniger) bears. Brown bears were more frequent in northern...

  13. Citizen attitudes to farm animals in Finland: a population-based study

    Contributor(s):: Kupsala, S., Vinnari, M., Jokinen, P., Rasanen, P.

    Citizen attitudes and opinions form an important driving force for improvements in the ethical status of farm animals in society. Hence, it is important to understand how attitudes to farm animals vary in society and what factors, mechanisms and social processes influence the development of these...

  14. Implementing RFID to Improve Animal Shelter Inventory and Allocation

    Contributor(s):: Adam Mach, Tali Freed (adviser)

    The purpose of this project is to observe the best way to incorporate Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology into the animal inventory system present in animal shelters, while also observing the benefits of implementing this system. The Woods Humane Society was used in this project as a...

  15. The Use of a Shelter Software a to Track Frequency and Selected Risk Factors for Feline Upper Respiratory Infection

    Full-text: Available

    Contributor(s):: Ann Therese Kommedal, Denae Wagner, Kate Hurley

    Objective—Feline upper respiratory infection (URI) is a common, multi-factorial infectious disease syndrome endemic to many animal shelters. Although a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in shelter cats, URI is seldom formally monitored in shelter cat populations. Without...

  16. The potential of Social Network Analysis as a tool for the management of zoo animals

    Contributor(s):: Rose, P. E., Croft, D. P.

    Social Network Analysis (SNA) enables the fine scale of animal sociality and population structure to be quantified. SNA is widely applied to questions relating to behavioural ecology but has seen little use in the application to zoo animal management, despite its clear potential. Investment in...

  18. Ranging characteristics of the domestic cat ( Felis catus) in an urban environment

    Contributor(s):: Thomas, R. L., Baker, P. J., Fellowes, M. D. E.

    In many countries, high densities of domestic cats ( Felis catus) are found in urban habitats where they have the potential to exert considerable predation pressure on their prey. However, little is known of the ranging behaviour of cats in the UK. Twenty cats in suburban Reading, UK, were fitted...

  19. Effort versus Motivation: Factors Affecting Antlered and Antlerless Deer Harvest Success in Pennsylvania

    Contributor(s):: Bhandari, Prem, Stedman, Richard C., Luloff, A. E., Finley, James C., Diefenbach, Duane R.

    Hunting can be an effective tool for managing deer populations, but hunter willingness to harvest deer and their success is critical to management capacity. Moreover, harvest of antlerless deer is crucial to managing deer populations. Previous research has examined the effects of weather,...

  20. Human-dog interactions and behavioural responses of village dogs in coastal villages in Michoacan, Mexico

    Contributor(s):: Ruiz-Izaguirre, E., Eilers, K. H. A. M., Bokkers, E. A. M., Ortolani, A., Ortega-Pacheco, A., Boer, I. J. M. de
