Behavioral characterization of musth in Asian elephants (Elephas maximus): Defining progressive stages of male sexual behavior in in-situ and ex-situ populations
Contributor(s):: LaDue, Chase A., Vandercone, Rajnish P. G., Kiso, Wendy K., Freeman, Elizabeth W.
Complementary studies of wild and zoo-housed animals offer insight into behavioral variation across a range of conditions including the context under which various behaviors evolved in natural settings. This information can be used to improve the sustainability of in-situ and ex-situ populations...
The Animal-Human Interface in Farm Animal Production: Animal Fear, Stress, Reproduction and Welfare
| Contributor(s):: Acharya, R. Y., Hemsworth, P. H., Coleman, G. J., Kinder, J. E.
A negative human-animal relationship (HAR) from the perspective of the animal is a limiting factor affecting farm animal welfare, as well as farm animal productivity. Research in farm animals has elucidated sequential relationships between stockperson attitudes, stockperson behaviour, farm...

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...
Correlation between gender, age and reproductive status with canine behavior assessed by the C-BARQ toolCorrelacao entre sexo, idade e estado reprodutivo com o comportamento canino avaliado pela ferramenta C-BARQ
| Contributor(s):: Neder, J. F. de S., Soares, G. M.
This study investigated Brazilian's dogs behavior through the Canine Behavioral Assessment and Research Questionnaire (C-BARQ) and establish if these behaviors have a significant relationship with the age, sex and neutering status of the animal. The questionnaire was answered by owners...
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...

Can behavioural management improve behaviour and reproduction in captive blue-and-yellow macaws (Ara ararauna)?
| Contributor(s):: Miglioli, Amanda, Vasconcellos, Angélica da Silva
Environments that do not provide animals with appropriate stimuli may affect their welfare and reproduction, for example by precluding them from exhibiting their full behavioural repertoire. In this study, we sought to evaluate the effectiveness of behavioural management techniques to stimulate...
Surgical sterilization impacts on behavior of coyote pairs
| Contributor(s):: Leary, Tyler, Schultz, Jeffrey T., Young, Julie K.
Coyotes (Canis latrans) involved in depredation of livestock, an act frequently resulting in human-wildlife conflict, often do so out of necessity for provisioning pups. Surgical sterilization methods such as vasectomy that preserve gonadal hormones have been successful in reducing depredation by...

Variance in Stallion Semen Quality among Equestrian Sporting Disciplines and Competition Levels
| Contributor(s):: Megan Wilson, Jess Williams, V. Tamara Montrose, Jane Williams
Most stallions within breeding programmes are expected to breed and compete concurrently. The exercising of stallions with regards to training regimes during the breeding season is a controversial subject. Daily exercise at low intensities is important for the mental and reproductive well-being...
Damage to Salamandra infraimmaculata Populations by Human Activity in Creating Water Pits Is a Death Trap in Semi-Arid Habitats
| Contributor(s):: Gad Degani, Udi Grosman, Tali Goldberg, Nadav Hanegbi
The different breeding sites of Salamandra infraimmaculata on the southern border of its distribution were examined and mapped in order to estimate the damage caused by water holes that could represent death traps for salamanders in xeric habitats. Among the various types of breeding...
