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.

Cats are one of the most popular pets around, but they are also wild animals. This book, focusing on behavior and well-being, looks at the feline genus as a whole and how our understanding of the domestic cat can help explain wild cat characteristics, and vice versa. Different behaviors are described to indicate what constitutes good welfare in the cat, while the origins of cat behaviour are discussed from an evolutionary basis. This book also covers current topics such as welfare issues with feral cats and human-cat interactions. Providing a veterinary perspective as well as an ethological one, this is an important read for veterinarians, shelter workers, animal behaviourists and students of veterinary medicine and animal welfare, while also being of interest to pet owners.

Domestication of vertebrates is based on the understanding of the needs of animals in their natural environment. Thus the success of this domestication throughout human history is largely dependant of the knowledge of the animal feeding behaviour. The aim of this volume is to provide advanced students and researchers with a review of current knowledge of feeding in domestic mammals and birds. The book also presents chapters on feeding behaviour in particular species; the scope is wide, covering not only ruminants, poultry and pigs, but also more specifically horses, rabbits and ostrich. Contributors include leading research workers from Europe, USA, Australia and South Africa.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.
