  1. Spatial Design of Guest Feeding Programs and Their Effects on Giraffe Participation and Social Interactions

    Contributor(s):: Ramis, Fatima, Mohr, Michaela, Kohn, Gregory, Gibson, Quincy, Bashaw, Meredith, Maloney, Dan, Maple, Terry

  2. How can social network analysis contribute to social behavior research in applied ethology?

    Contributor(s):: Makagon, Maja M., McCowan, Brenda, Mench, Joy A.

    Social network analysis is increasingly used by behavioral ecologists and primatologists to describe the patterns and quality of interactions among individuals. We provide an overview of this methodology, with examples illustrating how it can be used to study social behavior in applied contexts....

  3. Effect of fasting on self-feeding activity in juvenile sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax)

    Contributor(s):: Benhaïm, David, Bégout, Marie-Laure, Péan, Samuel, Brisset, Blandine, Leguay, Didier, Chatain, Béatrice

    In various experiments under self-feeding conditions, sea bass groups could be divided into three categories regarding feeder actuation: high, low and zero-triggering fish. In all cases few high-triggering fish were responsible for a high percentage of the feed delivery. A question was raised...

  4. Self-feeding behaviour and personality traits in tilapia: A comparative study between Oreochromis niloticus and Sarotherodon melanotheron

    Contributor(s):: Benhaïm, David, Akian, Djétouan Dieudonné, Ramos, Mathieu, Ferrari, Sébastien, Yao, Kouakou, Bégout, Marie-Laure

    Hybridization aims at combining valuable traits from two species into a single group. Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus (NT) and Black-chinned tilapia Sarotherodon melanotheron (BCT) are respectively characterized by fast growth and water salinity tolerance which attract the breeders who could...

  5. Zoo agent's measure in applying the five freedoms principles for animal welfare

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Argyo Demartoto, Robertus Bellarminus Soemanto, Siti Zunariyah

    Background: Animal welfare should be prioritized not only for the animal's life sustainability but also for supporting the sustainability of living organism's life on the earth. However, Indonesian people have not understood it yet, thereby still treating animals arbitrarily and...

  6. Agonistic behaviour, skin lesions and activity pattern of entire male, female and castrated male finishing pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Bunger, B., Schrader, L., Schrade, H., Zacharias, B.

    Fattening of intact boars is the least invasive alternative to the detrimental welfare effects of surgical castration of piglets. However, beside problems such as boar taint the divergent agonistic and sexual behaviour of boars may impair the pigs' welfare during fattening. To evaluate the...

  7. Network characteristics and development of social structure of agonistic behaviour in pigs across three repeated rehousing and mixing events

    | Contributor(s):: Buttner, K., Scheffler, K., Czycholl, I., Krieter, J.

    In commercial pig production, the mixing of unacquainted pigs is a standard procedure which leads to agonistic interactions with a wide range of individual pig behaviour. A reduction in these agonistic interactions positively affects animal health, welfare aspects and production parameters. With...

  8. Breeding inequality: Human-animal interactions in beef production

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Ellis, Colter

  9. 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...

  10. Comparative study of trophic behaviour and herd structure in wild and feral goats living in a Mediterranean island: management implications

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Rivera-Sanchez, L., Cassinello Roldan, J., Baraza Ruiz, E., BartolomeFilella, J.

    The aim of this study was to compare the trophic behaviour and the social structure of Majorcan wild goats and feral goats present in the island of Majorca. The former are descendants of an ancestral goat ecotype introduced in the island in the late Neolithic, whereas feral goats come from...
