Abstract

Wildlife management actions can alter fundamental behaviors of individuals and groups, which may directly impact their life history parameters in unforeseen ways. This is especially true for highly social animals because changes in one individual's behavior can cascade throughout its social...

Abstract

The behavioral effects of the immunocontraceptive agent porcine zona pellucida (PZP) have not been adequately studied. Important managerial decisions for several species, including the wild horse (Equus caballus), have been based on this limited research. We studied 30 horses on Shackleford Banks,...

Abstract

Previous research on the Assateague horses found that high-ranking females had more surviving offspring than low-ranking females. Variance in reproductive success may be the result of a variety of proximate processes that affect sexual behavior such as mate choice and mate competition. A study was...

Abstract

Feral horses on Shackleford Banks Island, North Carolina, are managed by the National Park Service in order to reduce their impact on the fragile barrier island ecosystem. Management techniques include removal of young horses and immunocontraception of many of the mares using Porcine Zona Pellucida ...

Abstract

A herd of 15 Belgian brood-mares and 10 foals was studied. Field data were collected using 30-min focal samples, such that 1 h of data was collected on each foal per week of its life. Social spacing was recorded at 2-min intervals. Social encounters during the focal samples were recorded on...

Abstract

There is much evidence that the postnatal killing of the young in primates and carnivores, and induced abortion in rodents, are evolved traits that exert strong selective pressures on adult male and female behaviour. About 7000 h of observations were made on a population of 129 feral horses,...
