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...

AbstractFull Text

Waldrapp Ibis (Geronticus eremita) are critically endangered, so their future existence is reliant on global captive breeding efforts. Due to their sociable nature the species is often kept in mixed-species exhibits in captivity. Yet little is understood, across all taxa, of the interactions of...

Abstract

Little is known about how socially housed captive carnivores respond to temporary reductions in available space. We documented rates of aggression and affiliation in our group of six female tigers, under their normal housing conditions and during a period of exhibit renovations which resulted in a...

Abstract

Mixed-species exhibits offer a variety of benefits but can be challenging to maintain due to difficulty in managing interspecific interactions. This is particularly true when little has been documented on the behavior of the species being mixed. This was the case when we attempted to house three...

Abstract

Cheetahs are known to reproduce poorly in captivity and research suggests that the reasons for this are behavioral, rather than physiological. In the wild, male cheetahs remain in stable groups, or coalitions, throughout their lifetime. Appropriate social group housing is important in enhancing...
