Abstract

Laboratory rhesus macaques are often housed in pairs and may be temporarily or permanently separated for research, health, or management reasons. While both long-term social separations and introductions can stimulate a stress response that impacts inflammation and immune function, the effects of...

AbstractFull Text

Good knowledge of certain species of laboratory animals implies, inter alia, due knowledge of their species specific behaviour, which, among other things, determines the choice of accommodation and housing as factors that greatly influence the health and welfare of animals used in experiments. This ...

Abstract

Similar to other primate species, captive cynomolgus macaques (Macaca fascicularis) are prone to becoming overweight. The relationship between body condition and feeding behaviour in group-housed animals has not been reported. This study evaluated the effect of daily feeding routines on behaviour...

Abstract

Environmental enrichment (EE) is an experimental model which is believed to counteract some of the effects induced by stressors, although few studies have exposed rodents simultaneously to EE and stress. Our aim was to compare the short- and long-term effects of different housing conditions in mice ...

Abstract

Spontaneous behaviour in the home pen of group-housed minipigs was characterised with respect to social interaction, activity, locomotion, exploration and resting behaviour. Sixteen adult male and female Göttingen minipigs were allocated in three groups. Data were acquired at the age of seven and...

Abstract

Laboratory housing conditions have significant physiological and psychological effects on rodents, raising both scientific and humane concerns. Published studies of rats, mice and other rodents were reviewed to document behavioural and psychological problems attributable to predominant laboratory...

Abstract

Housing mice in the laboratory in groups enables social interaction and is the way a laboratory should house mice. However, adult males show reciprocal aggression and are therefore frequently housed individually. Alternatively, a grid divider, which allows sensory contact by sight and smell but...

Abstract

To investigate differences in behaviour associated with social rank and environmental conditions, a comparison was made between swimming and feeding activities of dominant and subordinate angelfish, housed in groups of six, with those of angelfish housed singly in identical laboratory aquaria....
