Abstract

Applied ethology is mainly concerned with aspects of animal behaviour, which are relevant from the perspective of human utilisation. During the last 50 years, it has moved from being a highly practical and solution-driven branch of science, to becoming a vital part of science, affecting and being...

Abstract

Understanding the genetic basis of phenotypic diversity is a challenge in contemporary biology. Domestication provides a model for unravelling aspects of the genetic basis of stress sensitivity. The ancestral Red Junglefowl (RJF) exhibits greater fear-related behaviour and a more pronounced...

Abstract

Background: Domestication of animals leads to large phenotypic alterations within a short evolutionary timeperiod. Such alterations are caused by genomic variations, yet the prevalence of modified traits is higher than expected if they were caused only by classical genetics and mutations....

Abstract

Domestication of animals offers unique possibilities to study evolutionary changes caused by similar selection pressures across a range of species. Animals from separate genera tend to develop a suite of phenotypic alterations referred to as "the domesticated phenotype". This involves changes in...
