Abstract

Invasive species are implicated in native species declines globally, but predicting the effect of specific invaders on a given native species remains difficult. Many successful invaders are highly aggressive, whereas others are not. The highly successful invasive Asian house gecko, Hemidactylus...

Abstract

It has been 55 years since Nikolaas Tinbergen formalized the field of ethology by identifying four types of inquiry that address the "how" and "why" of animal behavior from both a contemporary and historical perspective. This framework has been particularly useful in exploring eusocial behavior...

Abstract

Heavy alcohol consumption leads to neuropathological damage and alcohol use disorder, which affects the health of people and results in a cost burden. However, the genes modulating sensitivity to ethanol remain largely unknown. Here, we identified a novel gene, Drosophila glutathione transferase...

Abstract

In response to a need for mitigating blackbird damage to crops, we evaluated the effectiveness of two unmanned aircraft systems (UAS or drones) to protect crops from blackbird damage. UAS are known to elicit behavioral and physiological responses in wildlife and have been proposed as a means to...

Abstract

Evidence-based policy guidance necessary for addressing mixed outcomes of community-based rangeland management (CBRM) is limited, dominated by case studies, and lacking coverage of diverse ecological settings. In remedy, we studied 65 traditional neighborhoods and 77 formally-organized CBRM groups...

Abstract

Theory suggests that males should adjust courtship in response to a variety of factors, including female quality, the risk of male-male competition, and often in spiders, the risk of sexual cannibalism. Male black widow spiders demonstrate a behavior during courtship whereby they tear down and...

Abstract

Do changes introduced within your practice go no further; are they met with negativism, disinterest or even resistance? Are new ideas dismissed by a culture of complacency and inertia?

Abstract

Slowing the development of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) requires reducing antimicrobial use (AMU), which necessitates altering prescribing practices and reducing use in food-producing species (O'Neill, 2015; World Health Organisation, 2018). The literature has suggested for many years that we...
