Abstract

Among territorial animals, several species are characterized by males showing the same initial behaviours towards both sexes, leading to significant chances of injuries against conspecifics. In this study, we investigated how visual stimuli exhibited by a female-mimicking robotic replica can be...

Abstract

The application of equipment and tools that produce a magnetic field is increasing in aquatic ecosystems. In the present study, the effects of acute (1 week) and subacute (3 weeks) exposures to different static magnetic fields (SMFs) of 2.5, 5, 7.5 mT on stress indices (cortisol and glucose), sex...

Abstract

Artificial insemination protocols depend on efficient behavioral estrus detection and insemination time in Angora goat. Therefore, we aim to determine the accuracy of an estrus scoring system in Angora goats with different PMSG doses during the breeding season. Does (n: 260) were randomly divided...

Abstract

Acoustic signals play an important role in premating isolation based on sexual selection within many taxa. Many male parasitic wasps produce characteristic courtship songs used by females in mate selection. In Cotesia (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Microgastrinae), courtship songs are generated by wing...

Abstract

The effects of an artificially prolonged photoperiod on growth, survival rate, colouration, and sexual maturation in brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis during pre- and post-spawning periods from 21 June to 06 November were investigated. Fish of mean initial weight ∼150 g were reared at ambient...
