Abstract

Diel rhythmicity of grazing, swimming, resting and social interactions of rohu (Labeo rohita) (weight 66.5-68.3 g) and common carp (Cyprinus carpio) (79.9-82.0 g) were observed in 1 m2 simulated ponds using video images. Fish behaviour was monitored during a full 24-h period, starting at 08:00...

Abstract

Fish behaviour was monitored in 1-m2 tanks each stocked with three 67-g rohu (Labeo rohita). In addition, 80-g common carp (Cyprinus carpio) were stocked at 0, 1 or 2 fish per tank. All tanks were fertilized prior to stocking to stimulate natural food production. In addition, half of the tanks were ...

Abstract

Polyandry (female multiple mating) can confer important benefits to females, but few studies have considered its potential costs. One such cost may arise through differences in the relatedness of offspring born to females with different mating histories; offspring born to monandrous females are...

Abstract

Vocal communication is a trait shared by most vertebrates. Non-mammalian model systems have provided exquisite examples of how motor and sensory systems, respectively, produce and encode the physical attributes of acoustic communication signals that play essential roles in mediating the dynamics of ...

Abstract

The effect of chronic social stress on growth, energetic substrates and hormones was tested in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss. After a 14-day isolation period, the fish were paired for 8 days. In order to expose fish to chronic intermittent social contact during pairing, they were maintained in ...

Abstract

A study was conducted to determine the behaviour, ecology and effects of shipping activity of narwhals (Monodon monoceros) in Baffin Island in Nunavut, Canada, during the summers of 2006-2008. It was shown that the average group size was 3.6 animals (2-25). Narwhals were sometimes segregated by sex ...

Abstract

Animals that undergo a habitat shift face a number of challenges as they move between habitats; for example, they may encounter new predator species and may be vulnerable as they adapt to their new surroundings. An ability to adapt quickly to the new environment is likely to influence...

Abstract

The number and duration of agonistic encounters between signal crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus individuals were monitored in two different social environments: a "stable" environment with large size variation and in an "unstable" environment with narrow size variation of conspecifics. The number...

Abstract

The acoustic mode is the most reasonable means for social animals such as dolphins to maintain contact in the underwater habitat, and has been developed since they moved to the sea. This study investigates variations in dolphin vocalizations under the following conditions in a captive environment:...

Abstract

Previous work has shown that the reflection from aquarium walls can modify several aspects of crayfish behaviour, but only if the crayfish are socialized. Such socialization is known to generate a dominance hierarchy composed of dominant and subordinate animals. The present study was conducted to...
