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

    Contributor(s):: Chaudhuri, U.

  9. 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.

  10. Dermatitis prompted by a collar employed in radio-telemetry monitoring

    Contributor(s):: Ferreira, G. A., Pinto, M. L., Nakano-Oliveira, E., Genaro, G.

  11. Teaching the dog and learning from the dog: interactivity in herding dog training and use

    Contributor(s):: Savalois, N., Lescureux, N., Brunois, F.

  12. The acquisition and maintenance of dogs' aversion responses to kiwi (Apteryx spp.) training stimuli across time and locations

    Contributor(s):: Dale, A. R., Statham, S., Podlesnik, C. A., Elliffe, D.

  13. Attitudes of Canadian beef producers toward animal welfare

    Contributor(s):: Spooner, J. M., Schuppli, C. A., Fraser, D.

  14. The post-release fate of hand-reared orphaned bats: survival and habitat selection

    Contributor(s):: Serangeli, M. T., Cistrone, L., Ancillotto, L., Tomassini, A., Russo, D.

  15. Animal bites

    Contributor(s):: Patronek, Gary J., Slavinski, Sally A.

  19. Latitudinal variation in diet and patterns of human interaction in the marine otter

    Contributor(s):: Mangel, J. C., Whitty, T., Medina-Vogel, G., Alfaro-Shigueto, J., Caceres, C., Godley, B. J.

    The marine otter (Lontra felina) inhabits patches of rocky coastline from central Peru to southern Chile and is classified as Endangered by the IUCN. Given the limited information available about the species, we set out to assess marine otter diet with a view to detecting latitudinal differences,...

  20. Predicting spatial aspects of human-elephant conflict

    Contributor(s):: Sitati, N. W., Walpole, M. J., Smith, R. J., Leader-Williams, N.

    Human-elephant conflict (HEC) in Africa occurs wherever these two species coincide, and poses serious challenges to wildlife managers, local communities and elephants alike. Mitigation requires a detailed understanding of underlying patterns and processes. Although temporal patterns of HEC are...
