  1. The earliest domestic cat on the Silk Road

    Contributor(s):: Haruda, A. F., Ventresca Miller, A. R., Paijmans, J. L. A., Barlow, A., Tazhekeyev, A., Bilalov, S., Hesse, Y., Preick, M., King, T., Thomas, R., Härke, H., Arzhantseva, I.

  2. The Effects of Kinship, Reciprocity, and Conscious Deliberation on the Level of Concern for Non-Humans: How Our Psychology Affects Levels of Concern for Non-Humans

    Full-text: Available

    Contributor(s):: Barton Thompson, Cindy Quinter

    As hunter-gatherers, it is unlikely that humans evolved psychological tendencies to extend high levels of concern for predator or prey species. Our coalitional psychology, which evolved to regulate human interactions with other humans, might be the basis for the extension of ethical concerns to...

  3. Significant Neuroanatomical Variation Among Domestic Dog Breeds

    Contributor(s):: Hecht, E. E., Smaers, J. B., Dunn, W. D., Kent, M., Preuss, T. M., Gutman, D. A.

  4. Dogs (Canis familiaris) recognise our faces in photographs: implications for existing and future research

    Contributor(s):: Eatherington, C. J., Mongillo, P., Looke, M., Marinelli, L.

  5. An evolutionary point of view of animal ethics

    Contributor(s):: Criscuolo, François, Sueur, Cédric

    The observation that animals may respond to the emotional states of conspecific or even heterospecific individuals is not new. After more than one century, the need to define what exactly non-human animals are able to feel and—from this starting point—rethink the legal status and place of animals...

  6. Behavioral synchronization and affiliation: Dogs exhibit human-like skills

    Contributor(s):: Duranton, C., Gaunet, F.

  7. Cognition Regulated by Emotional Decision Making

    Contributor(s):: Stefano, G. B.

  8. The social neuroscience of human-animal interaction

  9. Affiliation in human-animal interaction

    Contributor(s):: Beetz, Andrea, Bales, Karen, Freund, Lisa S., McCune, Sandra, Esposito, Layla, Gee, Nancy R., McCardle, Peggy

  11. Coping strategies in captive capuchin monkeys ( Sapajus spp.)

    Contributor(s):: Ferreira, R. G., Mendl, M., Wagner, P. G. C., Araujo, T., Nunes, D., Mafra, A. L.

    Studies on diverse species indicate the existence of individual differences in stress coping strategies labelled as 'proactive' and 'reactive'. Identifying taxonomic distribution of such coping strategies is fundamental to evolutionary models and to management of captive animals. Capuchin monkeys...

  12. On the moral status of humanized chimeras and the concept of human dignity

    Contributor(s):: Ravelingien, A., Braeckman, J., Legge, M.

  13. Response: What Does Evolutionary Theory Tell Us about the Moral Status of Animals?

    Contributor(s):: Menta, Timothy

  14. Parsimony, Evolution, and Animal Pain

    Contributor(s):: Rosenfeld, Robert P.

  15. The Possibility of an Evolutionary Semantics

    Contributor(s):: Sheets-Johnstone, Maxine

  16. Social support does not require attachment: any conspecific tranquilizes isolated guinea-pig pups

    Contributor(s):: Tokumaru, R. S., Ades, C., Monticelli, P. F.

    Guinea pig pups produce typical distress whistles when isolated. Whistles' frequency is decreased or abolished when they contact with the mother and, to a lesser degree, a sibling or even an unfamiliar female, is regained. Those non-aggressive companions were considered social support providers...

  17. Evaluation of environmental and intrinsic factors that contribute to stereotypic behavior in captive rhesus macaques ( Macaca mulatta)

    Contributor(s):: Gottlieb, D. H., Maier, A., Coleman, K.

    Full body repetitive behaviors, known as motor stereotypic behaviors (MSBs), are one of the most commonly seen abnormal behaviors in captive non-human primates, and are frequently used as a behavioral measure of well-being. The main goal of this paper was to examine the role of environmental...

  18. Converging on ancient bones: a review of the evidence for the close relatedness of humans ( Homo sapiens) and spotted hyenas ( Crocuta crocuta)

    Contributor(s):: Baynes-Rock, M.

    The majority of spotted hyena studies are conducted in places such as national parks and reserves where there are few humans present other than the researchers. I argue that this reflects a perception that "real" hyenas are those largely unaffected by contact with humans. This is at odds with...
