Group housing with electronically controlled crates for lactating sows. Effect on farrowing, suckling and activity behavior of sows and piglets
Contributor(s):: Bohnenkamp, Anna-Lena, Meyer, Christian, Müller, Karin, Krieter, Joachim
The aim of the present study was the analysis of behavioral parameters of sows and piglets in two different farrowing systems. Data of 132 crossbred-sows were collected. Conventional single housing with farrowing crates (SH) was compared to a group housing system (GH) with six single pens,...
The influence of handling and exposure to a ferret on body temperature and running wheel activity of golden hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus)
Contributor(s):: Eberli, Patrizia, Gebhardt-Henrich, Sabine G., Steiger, Andreas
In order to determine a stress response, two groups of twenty male golden hamsters were either exposed to a ferret or handled by a human. The hamsters’ body temperature and running wheel activity were measured as stress correlates. Half of the hamsters’ cages were equipped with a functional...
Housing systems to meet the behavioural needs of a solitary mammal with an extensive home range: The Julia Creek dunnart (Sminthopsis douglasi)
Contributor(s):: Phillips, C. J. C., Davies, E., Lisle, A.
The Julia Creek dunnart is a rare solitary marsupial that displays regular stereotyped pacing in captivity. An effective captive breeding programme has been hindered by the lack of an efficient housing system. An initial experiment examined the feasibility of housing in pairs, by mixing animals...

Behavioral assessment of intermittent wheel running and individual housing in mice in the laboratory
| Contributor(s):: Pham, T. M., Brene, S., Baumans, V.
Physical cage enrichment - exercise devices for rodents in the laboratory - often includes running wheels. This study compared responses of mice in enriched physical and social conditions and in standard social conditions to wheel running, individual housing, and open-field test. The study...

The use and perceived importance of three resources which provide caged laboratory mice the opportunity for extended locomotion
| Contributor(s):: Sherwin, C. M.
The study examined the activity of 5 laboratory mice in 3 resources which provided the opportunity for extended or complex locomotion: a 'locomotion-loop' (a 40 cm torus of plastic tunnel), a complex tunnel environment and a running-wheel. In addition, the perceived importance of these resources...
