Abstract

Social insect colonies are highly organized systems, where communication among nestmates (i.e., social interactions) has a pivotal function for colonial organization. In order to further the understanding of social organization, the chronobiological system of social insect species, particularly...

Abstract

Entire male pigs display more aggressive and sexual behaviour. This might cause a condition of chronic stress and impair their welfare. In order to assess chronic stress in entire and castrated male pigs, as well as effects of providing grass silage as occupational and feed material on behaviour...

Abstract

The behavioural studies allow propitiating the necessary comfort to the experimentation animals. The present work study the behaviour of an Arctoides Macaco organization, in a colony, through the descriptive visual observation of behavioural actions, during 240 circadian periods. It was analyzed...

Abstract

In salmonid fishes there are indications that socially subordinate individuals avoid competition with larger, dominant fish by adjusting daily feeding and activity cycles. As in other vertebrates, the pineal organ and its hormone melatonin act as synchronizers of daily rhythms to the external...

Abstract

The diurnal, social rodent Octodon degus displays a robust sex difference in the ability to use social cues to facilitate reentrainment following a phase advance of the light cycle. Adult females housed with a female social cue donor reentrained 25% to 40% faster than did females reentraining...

Abstract

Young adult honey bees work inside the beehive "nursing" brood around the clock with no circadian rhythms; older bees forage for nectar and pollen outside with strong circadian rhythms. Previous research has shown that the development of an endogenous rhythm of activity is also seen in the...

Abstract

The interpretation of 621 and 634 photographs of ewes with single lambs and twins respectively kept in separate boxes under permanent light, taken vertically from a height of 4.5 m at hourly intervals over 24 days showed that the nursing activity, fodder intake and water drinking of the ewes with...

Abstract

Calves of both sexes and various breeds were kept in groups of five at lighting levels of 2, 20, 100 or 130 lux and behaviour was observed once a week by video. The longest duration and most frequent phases of resting behaviour were observed at 2 lux. The daily rhythm of resting behaviour was more...

Abstract

Response-modifying physical and biological factors other than instantaneous environmental conditions must be taken into account in defining the physiological and production responses of poultry to the thermal environment. Some of the more influential of these factors are discussed: acclimatization; ...
