Abstract

We studied the effects of social rank on the haematologic profile in a herd of 24 female Iberian red deer hinds. Social rank hierarchy was determined and blood samples were taken and analysed. After adjusting for age and body mass, dominance ranking showed a significant negative effect (ie, lower...

Abstract

Animal personality has been studied extensively in recent years, yet multidimensionality in tendencies of risk-related behavior, and the role of such consistency from a mating tactics perspective, is yet to be investigated. We used a semi-domesticated herd of reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) to examine ...

Abstract

Ultimate causes of animal dispersal have been hypothesized to benefit the dispersing individual because dispersal reduces competition for local resources, potential for inbreeding, and competition for breeding partners. However, proximate cues influence important features of dispersal behavior,...

AbstractFull Text

Neophobia is an ecologically relevant behaviour that arises through a cognitive assessment of novel stimuli. We assessed the responses of 8 captive fallow deer, using a novel object test and a qualitative behaviour assessment scale. The categorical principal component analysis revealed that the...

Abstract

Social interactions can influence infectious disease dynamics, particularly for directly transmitted pathogens. Therefore, reliable information on contact frequency within and among groups can better inform disease modeling and management. We compared three methods of assessing contact patterns:...

Abstract

Models of collective animal behaviour frequently make assumptions about the effects of neighbours on the behaviour of focal individuals, but these assumptions are rarely tested. One such set of assumptions is that the switch between active and inactive behaviour seen in herding animals is...
