Abstract

Oxytocin is a hormone that may not only influence reproductive mechanisms in mammals but also their social behavior, including pair bonding. We therefore tested if the concentrations of oxytocin and other hormones reveal mate preferences of 13 mares in estrus. Each mare was first exposed to two...

Abstract

Animal hosts and the microbiota that symbiotically inhabit them benefit each other reciprocally. The microbiota potentially benefit from their animal hosts by increasing the microbial communities through communication signals. Recent investigations reveal novel and important connections between...

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 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...
