Book Description :

This book draws together, for the first time, the published research on the behaviour, ecology and welfare of elephants living in zoos, circuses, logging camps and other captive environments in a single comprehensive volume. It takes a multi-disciplinary approach, considering the work of zoo biologists, animal behaviour and welfare scientists, veterinarians, philosophers, zoo educators, tourism specialists, conservation biologists, lawyers and others with a professional interest in elephants. Elephants under Human Care: The Behaviour, Ecology, and Welfare of Elephants in Captivity is a valuable resource for zoo biology and animal welfare researchers. It is also useful for students and zoo professionals and managers looking for a comprehensive guide to current research on captive elephants. Although not intended as a husbandry manual, the book discusses some of the elephant welfare standards developed by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) and their relationship to current knowledge of captive elephants. Includes results of captive studies compared with field studies of wild elephants Features original images of elephant behaviour as they live and behave under human care Includes results of the author’s original research including many original photographs Considers future implications of research for the welfare and conservation of elephants, both for elephants in captivity and those living in the wild

Book Description :

Reproductive biology is more than the development of techniques for helping with too little or too much breeding. While some of the relevant techniques are useful for individual species, technical developments have to be backed up by thorough biological understanding of the background behind the problems. This book is therefore threefold; (1) it provides a snapshot of the state of the art in terms of species-specific reproductive technologies, whether for individual animals or whole taxonomic groups; (2) it sets the reproductive problems in context and emphasizes the links between animal-based problems and the wider world, e.g. reproductive fitness and (3) it looks forward and presents realistic assessments of how effective some of the more recently developed techniques in reproductive technology might be at combating extinctions. This is a wide-ranging book that will be relevant to anyone involved in reproductive biology or in species conservation and provides provide them some useful perspectives about the real utility of current and emerging technologies. It has contributions from experts in reproduction and related fields.

Book Description :

I believe psychologists and psychiatrists are barking up the wrong tree. We do not suffer from psychological problems or mental problems directly, but we do suffer from emotional problems. It is now accepted that we are born with most, if not all, our emotions fixed. Therefore our emotional state must be hereditary, some good and some not so good. But we must not blame our parents because they have been burdened also. The way we are reared will affect the strength of these emotions. I believe that people with ‘psychological’ problems could recover much quicker if this theory is explained to them.

Book Description :

In this body of research, reproductive and adrenal hormones and behavior were used to evaluate individual and group responses to physiological, social, and environmental changes in zoo-housed Asian elephants, considering factors of sex, age, and life stage. Animals experience physiological, social, and environmental changes as part of their natural history and individual life experience. Measures of both positive and negative states are needed to assess the impact of these changes at the individual and group level. Through longitudinal analyses of more than 20 years of gonadal and adrenal hormone data, we confirmed the presence of intrinsic glucocorticoid (GC) patterns associated with reproductive state in male and female Asian elephants, providing further evidence that GCs play a role in normal reproductive function. In females, circulating cortisol was higher in the follicular phase compared to the luteal phase of the ovarian cycle, and highest in lactational anestrous compared to all other reproductive states. In bulls, circulating cortisol covaried positively with testosterone and musth, as observed in previous studies of elephants and during the analogous condition of rut in other ungulates. Age-related changes in cortisol were observed in both sexes, and some individuals experienced higher rates of change in cortisol in one phase of their reproductive cycle versus another. Concentrations of GCs covaried more consistently with physiological changes than with social changes in both sexes. Overall, the elephants in these studies showed adaptive adrenal responses to change, and they also exhibited substantial individuality in adrenal response to social life events. A study conducted to monitor an elephant herd through transition to a new habitat provided further insights on habitat features that help us meet the physiological, psychological and social needs of elephants under human care, and helped identify which of those features may be most beneficial for enhancing welfare.

Book Description :

Problems in Management of Locally Abundant Wild Mammals contains the proceedings of the Management of Locally Abundant Wild Mammals: A Workshop to Examine the Need for and Alternatives to the Culling of Wild Animals, held in Yarmouth Port, Massachusetts from September 29 to October 3, 1980. Contributors reexamine the scientific basis for possible management aimed at restraining local increase in numbers of locally abundant wild mammals, with emphasis on the issue of culling. This text is organized into six sections encompassing 19 chapters and begins with an overview of the dilemma of local overabundance or overpopulation of threatened mammals. In particular, it considers the extent to which past predictions have been fulfilled in practice, and whether understanding of the dynamics of living systems is adequate for useful prediction. This book also discusses the circumstances that allow a species to become so abundant and the adverse effects that arise. The chapters that follow present case studies that reflect experiences around the world concerning management of locally abundant mammals, including the white rhino in South Africa and deer in North America. This book also explores proposed solutions for problems involving the management of polar bear, the Northwest Atlantic humpback whale, and the British grey seal. This reference material is a valuable resource for zoologists, conservation biologists, and those with interest in the protection of wild mammals.
