Abstract

Social network analysis has been shown to be effective in studying the social structure of cetacean populations. Common bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) inhabiting the Indian River Lagoon (IRL), Florida, have among the highest concentrations of total mercury (THg) in blood reported...

Abstract

The "Judas" technique is based on the idea that a radio-tagged individual can be used to "betray" conspecifics during the course of its routine social behavior. The Burmese python (Python bivittatus) is an invasive constrictor in southern Florida, and few methods are available for its control....

Abstract

An invasive population of Burmese pythons (Python molurus bivittatus) is established across several thousand square kilometers of southern Florida and appears to have caused precipitous population declines among several species of native mammals. Why has this giant snake had such great success as...

Abstract

The impact of visitor crowd size on captive animal behaviour can be difficult to interpret in many institutions due to the lack of variation in crowd size over short periods of time. In attempts to compare greater variation in crowd size, animal behaviour is often compared over conditions that...

Abstract

Although literature on the reproduction of captive tigers is plentiful, there is little information on other social behaviors, particularly within large social groupings. Here we report on the long-term monitoring of social behaviors in six female tigers (Panthera tigris). Over a period of 6 years, ...

Abstract

Female African elephants advertise changes in reproductive condition to males through a variety of modalities, including an increase in low-frequency vocalizations, presumed to travel long distances. Although males respond to these vocalizations, it has been suggested that their proximate function...

Abstract

Several environmental contaminants have been found in paper mill effluent including substances with androgenic properties. The presence of androgenic substances in paper mill effluent was also indicated in the present study which demonstrated masculinized anal fins of female mosquitofish from the...

Abstract

Variation in ecological neighbourhoods (characterised in two ways using the number of active woodpecker (Picoides borealis) clusters within the area of a circle with a radius of a typical dispersal distance or the distance from an active cluster to its tenth nearest neighbour) of five large...

Abstract

Colony founding was studied in populations of Solenopsis invicta in Florida, USA, during 1994-95. All colonies in this area were monogyne. Groups of colonies were orphaned in spring before, during and after the flight of overwintered sexuals. When colonies were orphaned before the late winter...

Abstract

Ascidians were collected in September 1997 along the Atlantic coast of Florida, USA. Ascidians were dissected and examined for amphipods. L. spinicarpa was not very host-specific. Adults were found primarily in solitary ascidians. Approximately 90% of Ascidia nigra and 77% of Styela plicata from...
