Abstract

We explore how herd composition and management factors correlate with frequencies of social interactions in horse groups. Since the welfare of horses correlates with low aggression levels and social contact opportunities, information of this kind is important. The data are a collection of records...

Abstract

Nursery rearing of rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) alters behaviors but may be necessitated by maternal rejection or death, for research protocols, or for derivation of SPF colonies. The Tulane National Primate Research Center maintains a nursery-reared colony that is free from 9 pathogens as well ...

Abstract

We investigated the extent to which dominance relationships, as described for feral dogs and wolves, applied to a group of 24 neutered companion dogs at a dog daycare facility. Similar to other studies of dogs and wolves, we found significant linear dominance hierarchies based on highly...

Abstract

Behavioural observations of juvenile Diplodus sargus in natural habitats were conducted to test whether agonistic interactions occur in natural circumstances and, if they do, in which context they happen. The level of aggression and the shoals composition were also compared between distinct natural ...

Abstract

In New World primates, mixed-species troops have been reported. Here, we analysed the performance of affiliative and agonistic behaviours of Callithrix jacchus and Callithrix penicillata living in mixed groups. For this purpose, we recorded the interaction of the individuals from two groups located ...

Abstract

In animal husbandry, pigs have to cope with social challenges when regrouped with unfamiliar conspecifics. Regrouping pigs may result in an acute stress and physical injuries thus reducing animal welfare. The aim of the present experiment was to evaluate the behavioural, cortisol and growth...

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to investigate how group size and familiarity influence daily activity and social interactions in regrouped dairy calves. A total of 84 calves were divided into groups of 4, 8 and 16 animals, in which half of the calves in each group were unfamiliar with each...

Abstract

Previous studies of captive chimpanzees have demonstrated the "neighbor effect", or social contagion, with respect to agonistic vocalizations and behaviors. The present study considers whether there is a relationship between behavior patterns in focal animals and the auditory signals of neighboring ...
