Abstract

THIS is probably the first published experiment on sexual isolation in mammals. The behaviour of 3 geographically isolated forms of Peromyscus (maniculatus blandus, polionotus albifrons, and polionotus leucocephalus) has been investigated, first in societies made up of only 1 strain, then in mixed...

Abstract

Comparison was made of the effect of a surplus or deficiency of thiamine in the diet of closely in-bred adult mice on their aggressiveness and success in fighting. The mice which were housed separately in cages with wire-mesh floors, were brought together periodically for staged encounters. The...

Abstract

Adult albino laboratory rats (Rattus norvegicus Berkenhout) were put together in colonies in large cages, in conditions which lead to severe conflict and death among wild rats of the same species. There were no deaths and little conflict. Hybrid rats, obtained from an albino-wild cross, were...

Abstract

The social ranks of neighbouring birds in a laying cage plant were determined by paired encounters. It was found that a definite social structure existed in the cages. Three strains of birds originating from the same population were used in the experiment, and found to differ in social rank as well ...

Abstract

At approx. 6 mths. of age, 2 groups of Australorps were housed resp. on deep litter floors or in individual cages. Birds were scored for aggressiveness in paired encounters with 6 panels of birds. There were no significant regressions of egg weight or egg number on aggressiveness score for caged...

Abstract

Three separate aspects of avian behaviour are presented in this symposium.
G. McBride briefly describes the factors governing social behaviour in the fowl, emphasising that certain behavioural patterns are strongly influenced by the presence of dominant neighbours, while others, such as feather...

Abstract

The "get-away" cage is designed to cater for the most important behavioural activities of a group of 20-25 hens, such as eating, drinking, egg-laying and sitting. It is larger than the normal battery cage and contains more hens. Two new types with dustbaths and of different heights are described....

Abstract

The suggestion by Grauvogl (1978) that the increased playing behaviour of piglets removed from the sows and kept in cages is a sign of their well-being is contested; it may on the contrary be interpreted as conflict behaviour.
