  1. Human-elephant coexistence challenges in Myanmar: an analysis of fatal elephant attacks on humans and elephant mortality

    Contributor(s):: Zaw, Min Thant, May, R., Roskaft, E.

  2. Protein expression and genetic variability of canine Can f 1 in golden and Labrador retriever service dogs

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Breitenbuecher, C., Belanger, J. M., Levy, K., Mundell, P., Fates, V., Gershony, L., Famula, T. R., Oberbauer, A. M.

    Background: Valued for trainability in diverse tasks, dogs are the primary service animal used to assist individuals with disabilities. Despite their utility, many people in need of service dogs are sensitive to the primary dog allergen, Can f 1, encoded by the Lipocalin 1 gene (LCN1). Several...

  3. Assessing changes in the UK pet cat and dog populations: numbers and household ownership

    | Contributor(s):: Murray, J. K., Gruffydd-Jones, T. J., Roberts, M. A., Browne, W. J.

    The main aim of this study was to replicate methodology used to estimate the size of the UK pet cat and dog populations in 2006 and the proportion of households owning cats/dogs in 2007, to produce updated data to compare trends in ownership and population sizes. A cross-sectional study design...

  4. Patterns of human-coyote conflicts in the Denver Metropolitan Area

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Poessel, S. A., Breck, S. W., Teel, T. L., Shwiff, S., Crooks, K. R., Angeloni, L.

    In many cities throughout North America, human–coyote conflicts are an emerging problem. Little research has described temporal and spatial patterns of human–coyote conflicts, although such information can be an important step in developing and optimizing management efforts. We used...

  5. The future of teaching and research in companion animal biology in departments of animal sciences

    | Contributor(s):: McNamara, J. P.

  6. Effects of gender and group size on the time-activity budgets of adult breeding ostriches (Struthio camelus) in a farming environment

    | Contributor(s):: McKeegan, D. E. F., Deeming, D. C.

    Twenty-six adult ostriches in breeding condition, maintained outdoors, were studied to determine their diurnal time-activity budget in the UK during the months of July and August. Males and females from pairs (1 male, 1 female), trios (1 male, 2 females), a small group (group 1: 3 males 8...

  7. Time-dependent transition probabilities and the assessment of seasonal effects on within-day variations in chewing behaviour of housed sheep

    | Contributor(s):: Dutilleul, P., Deswysen, A. G., Fischer, V., Maene, D.

    State transitions in the chewing behaviour of six crossbred (Ile de France x Texel) yearling female sheep (Ovis aries) were studied by using jaw movements recorded continuously over 5 days at the end of a number of experimental periods from 21 September 1992 to 4 April 1993. The experiment was...

  8. Spatial-temporal arrangements of supplementation to modify selection of feeding sites by sheep

    | Contributor(s):: Distel, R. A., Soca, P. M., Demment, M. W., Laca, E. A.

    Undesirable grazing distribution results in land degradation and inefficient forage utilization. Rewards like food supplements have been commonly provided at predictable times and locations in the less preferred areas in order to improve grazing distribution. The problem with this approach is the...

  9. Temporal variation in grazing behaviour of sheep and the reliability of sampling periods

    | Contributor(s):: Champion, R. A., Rutter, S. M., Penning, P. D., Rook, A. J.

    Grazing behaviour recordings of 24 h duration are frequently taken to represent behaviour patterns typical of a longer period. This experiment tested the repeatability of patterns of grazing behaviour of 9 Scottish Halfbred (Border Leicester X Cheviot) yearling female sheep. Their behaviour was...
