Abstract

Pair housing of macaques has become a widely implemented compromise between meeting the social needs of the monkeys and allowing for their use in biomedical research. While beneficial to the animals, pair housing can provide challenges for those caring for them. Drawing from both scientific...

Abstract

There are some predictable patterns of trauma in captive rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) social groups. Several factors have been documented to contribute to these patterns, including group formation of unrelated animals, and the establishment of dominance ranks. Here, we report on how socially...

Abstract

Given the drawbacks of hand-rearing nonhuman animals in captivity, the practice is generally avoided, but it is sometimes necessary. A few scientific publications are available to guide managers toward best practices in hand-rearing, but the majority of articles focus on hand-rearing captive...

Abstract

The study of environmental enrichment has identified a variety of effective forms of enrichment, but there are widespread problems associated with their use. Few forms of enrichment are cognitively challenging, and even the most effective often result in rapid habituation. This study examined the...

Abstract

A single genomic element marked by the Gp-9 gene was found to be responsible for the existence of 2 distinct forms of social organization, polygyne and monogyne, in the fire ant Solenopsis invicta. In laboratory experiments using S. invicta collected from Georgia, USA, this genetic factor...

Abstract

Variation in ecological neighbourhoods (characterised in two ways using the number of active woodpecker (Picoides borealis) clusters within the area of a circle with a radius of a typical dispersal distance or the distance from an active cluster to its tenth nearest neighbour) of five large...

Abstract

A controversial model of speciation proposes that the development of alternative social organizations within populations of group-living animals may drive the inception of reproductive isolation. The alternative social behaviours, which are selectively favoured in some social or ecological...

Abstract

The role of nest paper hydrocarbons in nest and nestmate recognition for the social wasp P. metricus was examined. Newly-emerged P. metricus workers maintained in the laboratory spent 4 days alone on a fragment of nest paper that was subjected to one of the following treatments: untreated,...

Abstract

The role of nest-paper hydrocarbons in nestmate recognition was examined in the social wasp D. maculata. Pupae were excised from 9 colonies of D. maculata (in Georgia, USA) and placed in separate gel capsules in the laboratory. When workers emerged, they were isolated in the absence of other wasps...

Abstract

The role of nest paper hydrocarbons in nestmate recognition was examined in 30 nests of Polistes metricus collected from the field in Georgia, USA, during May-June 1990. Newly-emerged workers were allowed to spend 4 days on their nest in the absence of other wasps. The nests were either untreated,...
