Abstract

The event of giving birth is an essential part of animal production. In dairy cattle production, there are substantial economical and welfare-related challenges arising around the time of parturition, and hence increased focus on efficient management of the calving cow. Drawing on the research...

Abstract

An invasive population of Burmese pythons (Python molurus bivittatus) is established across several thousand square kilometers of southern Florida and appears to have caused precipitous population declines among several species of native mammals. Why has this giant snake had such great success as...

Abstract

Whereas mammalian mothers and young may retain long-term social affiliations in nature, the management of animals in captivity typically dictates that offspring are abruptly and permanently separated from their mothers at a relatively early age, often prior to the time of natural weaning. For...

This review, covering many mammalian species, describes oxytocin pathways in the brain and examines their regulation by gonadal steroids. Brain oxytocin receptors are unusual in their plasticity and the degree of difference in their distribution between species. The molecular characterization of...

Abstract

Social vertebrates display faster chromosomal evolution, faster species turnover and higher levels of allelic heterozygosity than nonsocial vertebrates. At least some species also display substantially more genetic differentiation among geographically spaced social groups. The explanation for this...
