Abstract

Strong social structuring within a population can confer fitness advantages to group members, but may also affect the ability of a population to recover from local extinctions. Opportunities to evaluate the dynamics of the collapse of a sub-population on a vertebrate population in the wild are...

Abstract

Rabbits are usually singly housed in laboratories, but a new emphasis on providing social housing for social species has prompted exploration of alternative housing for this species. However, a paucity of literature on the social behavior of rabbits in captivity has prevented scientific-based...

Abstract

Multi-sensor biologgers are a powerful method for studying individual behaviors of free-ranging species, yet the challenges of attaching non-invasive biologgers to agile, fast-moving marine species have prohibited application of this technique to small (<5 m) cetaceans. Integration of video...

Abstract

The introduced feral cat (Felis catus) is a widespread generalist with flexible social behaviour and an apex predator without major interspecific competitors in insular ecosystems that evolved in the absence of predators. Mechanistic definitions consider an animal's home range to be the spatial...

Abstract

Wild brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) are the main source of Mycobacterium bovis infection for New Zealand livestock. The disease is spread principally by infectious aerosol; therefore, social interactions determine disease transmission. In captive possums, den-sharing behaviour provided...

Abstract

Information on close interactions between wild animals is difficult to obtain for cryptic species, but is important for understanding their social and mating systems as well as the dynamics of directly transmitted diseases. The persistence of bovine tuberculosis (Tb) in New Zealand is enhanced by...
