Abstract

Asian elephants (Elephas maximus) are an endangered species with complex social behaviour. However, no previous studies have mapped the development of calves before the age of six months. This study seeks to fill this gap in knowledge through a characterisation of the earliest stages of development ...

Abstract

Takins (Budorcas taxicolor) are large bovids native to Bhutan, China, northeast India, and northern Myanmar. There is no published comprehensive ethogram for takin and only minimal published data on their behavior. We used captive takin housed in large enclosures in various social groups, ad...

Abstract

Animals in aggregations such as herds, schools, flocks, or colonies tend to synchronize their behaviour with each other for food acquisition and predator detection. Different species of captive penguins, when housed communally, intermingle more than in their natural habitat. Wild penguins typically ...

Abstract

Though some research exists concerning general behavior and activity patterns of Walruses in zoos or aquariums, less is known about how these patterns change in response to various environmental and temporal contexts. This study presents two studies assessing behavioral changes in relation to...

Abstract

Coxiella burnetii is an environmentally resistant bacterium that has been reported in wildlife populations. Frequent contact on pasture between white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and cattle has been reported by farmers in the Northeast U.S., and transmission of C. burnetii is thought to...

Abstract

Social status has striking effects on individual physiology, but the extent to which it influences pathogen resistance has rarely been explored. Here we examine how social status within groups of wintering house finches (Carpodacus mexicanus) relates to immunocompetence and susceptibility to an...

Abstract

Life history parameters of A. striata are summarized for a population in central New York, and analysed with respect to the evolutionary maintenance of eusociality in this species. High mortality (39%) of solitary foundresses and low mortality (12%) of social colonies indicate severe ecological...

Abstract

This species exhibits behaviour ranging from solitary to quasi-social. Nests found in the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York State, USA, were examined. This appears to be the southern limit for this species, whose distribution may be restricted by the harmful effects of summer heat and...

Abstract

Aggregations of D. lineatulus nests were studied in Ithaca, NY, USA, in 1977, 1978, 1980 and 1982. The observations showed that D. lineatulus has two generations per year in New York. Spring nests are initiated by 1-6 female bees; in multi-foundress nests all bees are potentially reproductive but...

Abstract

In November, 1948, a conference on methodology and techniques for the study of animal societies was sponsored jointly by the New York Academy of Sciences and the New York Zoological Society, and the proceedings have now appeared in the form of 12 papers. The main theme, the study of animal...
