  2. Food puzzles for cats: feeding for physical and emotional wellbeing

    Contributor(s):: Dantas, L. M. S., Delgado, M. M., Johnson, I., Buffington, C. A. T.

    Practical relevance: Many pet cats are kept indoors for a variety of reasons (eg, safety, health, avoidance of wildlife predation) in conditions that are perhaps the least natural to them. Indoor housing has been associated with health issues, such as chronic lower urinary tract signs, and...

  3. Are farmed salmon more prone to risk than wild salmon? Susceptibility of juvenile farm, hybrid and wild Atlantic salmon Salmo salar L. to an artificial predator

    Contributor(s):: Solberg, M. F., Zhang, ZhiWei, Glover, K. A.

    Offspring of farmed Atlantic salmon have been documented to display lower survival than the offspring of wild salmon in the wild. It has been suggested that reduced survival of farmed salmon offspring in the wild could, in part, be explained by increased susceptibility to predation through...

  4. Conditioned taste aversion in the grey fox ( Pseudalopex griseus), in Southern Argentine Patagonia

    Contributor(s):: Nielsen, S., Travaini, A., Vassallo, A. I., Procopio, D., Zapata, S. C.

    Attempts to control cougar ( Puma concolor) and culpeo fox ( Pseudalopex culpaeus) populations in Patagonia through poisoning, negatively affects grey foxes ( Pseudalopex griseus) and many other non-target species. It is therefore advisable to develop selective predator control methods. Among a...

  5. Density-dependent diet selection and body condition of cattle and horses in heterogeneous landscapes

    Contributor(s):: Cornelissen, P., Vulink, J. T.

    For some decades, grazing by cattle and horses is used as a management tool to achieve different nature management goals. For managers there are still questions to be answered about the effects of herbivore densities on their performance, vegetation development and biodiversity. This study...

  6. Methodologies for the care, maintenance, and breeding of tropical poison frogs

    Contributor(s):: McRobert, S. P.

    The Biodiversity Laboratories at Saint Joseph's University house more than 100 exotic and endangered animal species - including insects, fish, amphibians, and reptiles. Research in the laboratories is devoted, primarily, to understanding the genetic and ecological bases of animal behavior. In...

  7. There's a rat in my room! Now what? Mice show no chronic physiological response to the presence of rats

    Contributor(s):: Meijer, M. K., Loo, P. L. P. van, Baumans, V.

    In general, guidelines on housing and care of animals in the laboratory state that rats and mice should not be housed in the same room. Mice may perceive rats as predators. Although one theory says this can cause stress, there is little scientific evidence to support this theory. In the wild,...

  8. Behavior of feral horses in response to culling and GnRH immunocontraception

    Contributor(s):: Ransom, J. I., Powers, J. G., Garbe, H. M., Oehler, M. W., Sr., Nett, T. M., Baker, D. L.

    Wildlife management actions can alter fundamental behaviors of individuals and groups, which may directly impact their life history parameters in unforeseen ways. This is especially true for highly social animals because changes in one individual's behavior can cascade throughout its social...

  9. Responses by wild house mice ( Mus musculus) to various stimuli in a novel environment

    Contributor(s):: Witmer, G. W., Snow, N. P., Moulton, R. S.

    House mice ( Mus musculus) pose a threat to the native flora and fauna on islands, and can cause significant damage wherever they have been introduced. Methods used to eradicate invasive rodents, like house mice, at high population densities may not be appropriate for intercepting them at lower...

  10. Using sterilization to change predation rates of wild coyotes: a test case involving pronghorn fawns

    Contributor(s):: Seidler, R. G., Gese, E. M., Conner, M. M.

    Surgical sterilization of coyotes ( Canis latrans) reduced their predation rate on domestic sheep. We investigated whether sterilizing coyotes would similarly change coyote predation rates on pronghorn antelope ( Antilocapra americana) neonates. From May 2006 to March 2008, we radio-collared 71...

  11. Animals in war, animals on war: new perspectives from a theater of species

    Contributor(s):: Chaudhuri, U.

  12. Auditory and visual threat recognition in captive-reared Great Lakes piping plovers ( Charadrius melodus)

    Contributor(s):: Saunders, S. P., Ong, T. W. Y., Cuthbert, F. J.

  13. Behavioural responses of Argentine coastal dusky dolphins Lagenorhynchus obscurus to a biopsy pole system

    Contributor(s):: Loizaga de Castro, R., Hoelzel, A. R., Crespo, E. A.

  14. Cattle habitat selection and associated habitat characteristics under free-range grazing within heterogeneous Montane rangelands of Alberta

    Contributor(s):: Kaufmann, J., Bork, E. W., Blenis, P. V., Alexander, M. J.

  15. Conspecific attraction in invasive wild house mice: effects of strain, sex and diet

    Contributor(s):: Shapira, I., Brunton, D., Shanas, U., Raubenheimer, D.
