An IGE is heritable effect of an individual on...

Abstract

Group housing is often assumed to improve the welfare of gregarious species. Whether this is actually the case depends on the advantages (e.g. more opportunity for social and locomotor behaviour) and disadvantages (e.g. increased fighting and wounding) induced by the specific housing type. We...

Abstract

The aim of this review is to discuss the impact of group size on damaging behaviours, aggression, fear and stress in farm animals and to identify housing- and management options that can help to reduce problems caused by suboptimal group sizes. Increasing group size was found to increase the risk...

AbstractFull Text

Waldrapp Ibis (Geronticus eremita) are critically endangered, so their future existence is reliant on global captive breeding efforts. Due to their sociable nature the species is often kept in mixed-species exhibits in captivity. Yet little is understood, across all taxa, of the interactions of...
