- Behavior signals interpreted with body postures. Overall, Karen L. // DVM: The Newsmagazine of Veterinary Medicine;May2004, Vol. 35 Issue 5, p2S
No signaling or communication system in social animals is simple. The main reason this is so involves context. All signals are interpreted in light of other body postures and with respect to external factors occurring at the time the animal offers the signal. The congruency of all body signals...

- Animal behaviour: Geomagnetic map used in sea-turtle navigation. Lohmann, Kenneth J.; Lohmann, Catherine M. F.; Ehrhart, Llewellyn M.; Bagley, Dean A.; Swing, Timothy // Nature;4/29/2004, Vol. 428 Issue 6986, p909
Migratory animals capable of navigating to a specific destination, and of compensating for an artificial displacement into unfamiliar territory, are thought to have a compass for maintaining their direction of travel and a map sense that enables them to know their location relative to their...
- Assessment Methods and Indicators of Animal Welfare. Sejian, Veerasamy; Lakritz, Jeffrey; Ezeji, Thaddeus; Lal, Rattan // Asian Journal of Animal & Veterinary Advances;Apr2011, Vol. 6 Issue 4, p301
Animal welfare is the ability of an animal to cope physiologically, behaviorally, cognitively and emotionally with its physiochemical and social life environment. With the growing need for reliable methods to assess farm animal welfare, a scientific method for assessing their body language would...
- The History of Marine Mammal Research in the United Kingdom: An Exploration of the Interaction of Human Socioeconomics and Marine Mammal Ecology. Boyd, Ian L. // Aquatic Mammals;Jan2009, Vol. 35 Issue 1, p83
The article explores the history of the research regarding marine mammals in Great Britain. It discusses the human socioeconomics and marine mammal ecology's interaction and indicates that cultural reasons are what sustained the research interest in marine mammal studies in the country. It cites...
- Self-Improvement for Team-Players: The Effects of Individual Effort on Aggregated Group Information. Rands, Sean A. // PLoS ONE;2010, Vol. 5 Issue 7, p1
By putting effort into behaviours like foraging or scanning for predators, an animal can improve the correctness of its personal information about the environment. For animals living in groups, the individual can gain further information if it is able to assess public information about the...
