Abstract

A novel environment causes emotional reactions (fear, anxiety) and induces animals to seek information needed to modify or manipulate environmental stimuli, or to change the environment (escape). Present-day breeders are making increasing use of simple observation tests, which determine the...

Abstract

The European rabbit, both in its wild and domesticated forms, has been a pioneer species in the study of mammalian chemical communication, and illustrates well the difficulty of understanding the functional significance of these often complex signals. Here we investigate the performance of one of...

Abstract

Various parameters of sexual behaviour were studied in 10 male rabbits daily tested with sexually receptive females (ovariectomized, given estradiol benzoate s.c. 5 µg/d). The aim of this study was to analyse rabbit sexual behaviour during successive tests leading to sexual exhaustion. We allowed...

Abstract

The frequency of scent marking (chinning) following sexual behaviour was studied in adult male and female New Zealand White rabbits. In experiment 1 males were introduced to a sexually unreceptive female and allowed 1 or 6 mounts before the female was removed. Chinning behaviour was immediately...

Abstract

Background: Parasitic diseases are important in animal production because they cause high economic losses. Affected animals often exhibit stereotypical behavioral alterations such as anorexia and inactivity, among others. Among the diseases that commonly affect domestic rabbits is mange, which is...

Abstract

During estrus, the female domestic rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) displays scent marking behavior (chinning), which is immediately inhibited after mating, temporarily recovers, and then declines and remains inhibited across pregnancy. Chinning is inhibited by progesterone (P) and the activation of...

Abstract

There is no information on the neuroanatomical distribution of the progesterone receptor (PR) in the rabbit. Therefore, we mapped the distribution of PR-immunoreactive cells in the forebrain of ovariectomized female rabbits. Vehicle-injected ovariectomized rabbits showed PR-immunoreactive cells...
