Eine völlig neue Sicht auf unsere bepelzten und gefiederten Verwandten Klinisch depressive Gorillas, Rennmäuse, die sich nachts heimlich vollfressen, und von halluzinogenen Pilzen betörte Rentiere. Die Tiere, die im Urwald, im Meer oder in unserer Wohnung leben, werden manchmal krank an Leib und Seele – genau wie wir. Tierärzte sehen und behandeln diese Erkrankungen bei einer Vielzahl verschiedener Arten, und die meisten Humanmediziner ignorieren das bis heute. Das ist ein riesiger blinder Fleck, denn wir könnten die Gesundheit aller Arten verbessern, wenn wir wüssten, wie Tiere in ihrem natürlichen Umfeld leben und sterben, krank und wieder gesunde werden.

The Truth About Dogs

Stephen Budiansky holds that virtually everything previously written about dogs is either wrong or misguided. Instead he maintains that to understand the true nature of dogs we need to stop interpreting their behaviour in the human terms of loyalty and betrayal. The truth is far more complex and surprising. The Dog Genome Project is currently laying the groundwork for identifying the genetic basis of why our dogs behave in the way they do. Other research investigates canine intelligence, and some remarkable experiments reveal what dogs can and cannot see. Budiansky brings together the disciplines of behavioural science, genetics, neuroscience and archaeology to show us how wrong we have been about man's best friend.

Larry Carbone, a veterinarian who is in charge of the lab animal welfare assurance program at a major research university, presents this scholarly history of animal rights. Biomedical researchers, and the less fanatical among the animal rights activists will find this book reasonable, humane, and novel in its perspective. It brings a novel, sociological perspective to an area that has been addressed largely from a philosophical perspective, or from the entrenched positions of highly committed advocates of a particular position in the debate.

Horses have traditionally been used by man over the centuries for both work and recreation. Undoubtedly it was the behavioural characteristics of horses that made them suitable for domestication. More recently, horses have been bred for both behavioural and morphological attributes that enhance their abilities as working animals or for recreational or competitive purposes. This book provides a comprehensive scientific overview of the behaviour of horses as a basis for ensuring their well-being. It begins by discussing the evolutionary and neurological bases of behaviour, and concepts such as emotion and motivation. Chapter 3 considers maintenance behaviour, that is, behaviours such as body care, reactivity, sleep and feeding, which relate to homeostasis of the individual. A chapter on reproduction then reviews male and female sexual behaviour as well as fetal, parturient and maternal behaviour. Chapter 5 examines behaviour of the foal, play, general social behaviour and interactions. There is then consideration of abnormal behaviours and how to control them, before the final chapter assesses horse welfare, particularly in the context of training and overall husbandry. The book provides a unique perspective of a topical subject and will interest students and professionals in veterinary science, animal husbandry, animal behaviour and horse management.
