Abstract

Spatial positioning of individuals in animal groups has been studied from numerous perspectives. However, although many studies have focused on spatial position in flocks of birds and schools of fish, relatively few studies have been conducted in mammals with high accuracy. Because some mammal...

Abstract

Horses are phylogenetically distant from primates, but considerable behavioral links exist between the two. The sociality of horses, characterized by group stability, is similar to that of primates, but different from that of many other ungulates. Although horses and primates are good models for...

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

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

Managers concerned with shrinking habitats and limited resources for wildlife seek effective tools for limiting population growth in some species. Fertility control is one such tool, yet little is known about its impacts on the behavioral ecology of wild, free-roaming animals. We investigated...

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

The behaviour, body condition, parasite load and reproductive success of 7 multistallion and 12 single-stallion bands from the Kaimanawa feral horse (Equus caballus) population was recorded from August 1994 to March 1997. Mares were categorized as being loyal to a single stallion (SS) or a...

Abstract

Misaki feral horses on Kyushu Island, Japan, were separated into 2 herds and the difference between dispersal from natal group (natal dispersal) and dispersal from natal area (natal emigration) was studied. The causes of dispersal and emigration and their effects on harem formation were studied...

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,...
