Abstract

Social Network Analysis (SNA) enables the fine scale of animal sociality and population structure to be quantified. SNA is widely applied to questions relating to behavioural ecology but has seen little use in the application to zoo animal management, despite its clear potential. Investment in...

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 integration of evolutionary biology with developmental genetics into the hybrid field of the evolution of development (evo-devo) resulted in major advances in understanding multicellular development and morphological evolution. We show how insights from evo-devo can be applied to study the...

Abstract

We marvel at the social complexity of insects, marked by anatomically and behaviorally distinguishable castes, division of labor and specialization - but how do such systems evolve? Insect societies are composed of individuals, each undergoing its own developmental process and each containing its...

Abstract

The methods of assisted reproduction commonly used in domestic animals are currently being applied to non-domestic species. This is because of the limitation of maintaining the genetic variability in the wild, as it occurs in wild ruminants of the Mediterranean Basin. Despite the apparent progress...

Abstract

The evolution of the horse began some 65 million years ago. The horse's survival has depended on adaptive behaviour patterns that enabled it to exploit a diverse range of habitats, to successfully rear its young and to avoid predation. Domestication took place relatively recently in evolutionary...
