  1. Estimating the diet of urban birds: the problems of anthropogenic food and food digestibility

    Contributor(s):: Ottoni, I., Oliveira, F. F. R. de, Young, R. J.

    A variety of methods exist for assessing the diets of wild birds, each of which has its strengths and weaknesses. The objective of this study was to compare diet data collected in parallel by behavioural observations and faecal analysis from an urban population of Penelope superciliaris...

  2. Threshold concentrations of an anthraquinone-based repellent for Canada geese, red-winged blackbirds, and ring-necked pheasants

    | Contributor(s):: Werner, S. J., Carlson, J. C., Tupper, S. K., Santer, M. M., Linz, G. M.

    Wildlife repellents provide a non-lethal alternative for managing the monetary impacts of agricultural depredation. For the purpose of developing of an effective avian repellent, we established repellency thresholds of an anthraquinone-based repellent for Canada geese (Branta canadensis),...

  3. Artificial illumination reduces bait-take by small rainforest mammals

    | Contributor(s):: Bengsen, A. J., Leung, L. K. P., Lapidge, S. J., Gordon, I. J.

    Small mammals often moderate their foraging behaviour in response to cues indicating a high local predation risk. We assessed the ability of cues associated with a high predation risk to reduce the consumption of bait by non-target small mammal species in a tropical rainforest, without inhibiting...

  4. Influence of the presence of seeds and litter on the behaviour of captive red-capped mangabeys Cercocebus torquatus torquatus

    | Contributor(s):: Blois-Heulin, C., Jubin, R.

    The aim of this study was to analyse the influence of the presence of seeds and litter on the time budget of a family group of red-capped mangabeys, to improve animal welfare. Five experimental situations were tested in succession: (1) bare ground (without making any particular modifications of...
