Sow behavior during introduction to a large dynamic group is influenced by familiarity and method
| Contributor(s):: Kranz, Victoria A., Horback, Kristina M., Parsons, Thomas D., Pierdon, Meghann K.
Sows in an extensive setting maintain small, stable matrilineal social groups comprised of familiar, and often genetically related, conspecifics. Providing conditions in an intensive farm setting which allow similar social groups could reduce aggression by allowing familiar sows to benefit from...

To evaluate the relationship between skin lesion scores and aggressive behavior categories (unilateral active attack, standoff, and being bullied) of individual pigs when placed into pens after weaning, duration and frequency of three aggressive behavior categories were observed from video....
How does temperature affect aggression during and after dominance hierarchy formation in Nile tilapia?
| Contributor(s):: Barki, Assaf, Cnaani, Avner, Biran, Jakob
Social animals commonly establish dominance relationships by means of aggressive interaction, leading to hierarchical stability and priority of access to limited resources by high-ranked individuals. In poikilothermic animals, temperature is a major abiotic factor influencing social and...
