Artificial selection is the selection of advantageous natural variation for human ends and is the mechanism by which most domestic species evolved. Most domesticates have their origin in one of a few historic centers of domestication as farm animals. Two notable exceptions are cats and dogs. Wolf domestication was initiated late in the Mesolithic when humans were nomadic hunter-gatherers. A new study used behavioral data from more t dogs, to test the hypothesis that key behaviors in the domestication syndrome are correlated.
The study of animal personality is one of the fastest-growing areas of research in behavioral and evolutionary biology. Here Claudio Carere and Dario Maestripieri, along with a host of scholars from fields as diverse as ecology, genetics, endocrinology, neuroscience, and psychology, provide a comprehensive overview of the current research on animal personality.

The continuing domestication of animals is a complex process whose myriad impacts on animal behavior are often under-appreciated. Genetic factors play a significant role in both species-specific behaviors and behavioral differences exhibited by individuals in the same Edition: 1. Animals living with and raised by humans that are not domesticated should simply be referred to as non-domesticated animals. "Tame, wild animal" is also acceptable. Taming refers to a normally wild-natured animal that has been socialized with humans so that it is tolerant and relatively docile in the presence of humans.

The book is basically a review of the literature on the topic of domestication and rearing animals in captivity. Personal opinions are sometimes expressed but usually only after attempting to present the facts surrounding an issue in an objective manner.

Description This book synthesizes existing knowledge of the process of domestication and how captive breeding and management of wild and domestic animals have affected their behaviour and other biological traits.
The emphasis is on companion animals, farm animals, laboratory animals, including aquaculture. Written by a world authority on animal behaviour this is a highly original contribution to the subject that covers behaviour and domestication of farm, zoo and companion animals.
This book synthesizes existing knowledge of the process of domestication and how it has affected the behaviour of captive wild and domesticated animals. Three broad themes are. Domestication is a process by which humans select some phenotypes of wild animal species (i.e., morphological traits or growth), but as all traits are linked, the selection of a particular one has consequences on others.
In that context, behavioural traits may be affected by human selection. In this chapter, through classical behavioural traits, such as swimming capacities, foraging, social Cited by: 5.
The continuing domestication of animals is a complex process whose myriad impacts on animal behavior are commonly under-appreciated.
Genetic factors play a significant role in both species-specific behaviors and behavioral differences exhibited by individuals in the same species.
Animal Behavior, Second Edition, covers the broad sweep of animal behavior from its neurological underpinnings to the importance of behavior in conservation. The authors, Michael Breed and Janice Moore, bring almost 60 years of combined experience as university professors to this textbook, much of that teaching animal behavior.
"This book investigates the influence of domestication, genetics, and environment in the development of an animal’s behavior This book will be of interest and value to students studying animal or veterinary sciences, especially those unfamiliar with the differences in animal behaviors among various species." Domestication took place relatively recently in evolutionary time and the adaptability of equine behaviour has allowed it to exploit a variety of domestic environments.
Though there are benefits associated with the domestic environment, including provision of food, shelter and protection from predators, there are also costs. Fox is also the author of Between Animal and Man: The Key to the Kingdom and One Earth, One Mind, as well as several books for children, two of which have won awards.
The Wolf received the Christopher Award for Children's Literature and Ramu and Chennai received a National Teacher's Association best science book award in In the origin of modern humans, hunting of wild animals and gathering of wild plants in nature were the primary subsistence strategies.
Yet, ab years ago, the domestication of plants and animals began. The two main goals of the present chapter are to briefly describe (i) how wild animals were domesticated and (ii) what are the main biological consequences for the major farmed Cited by: 2. What is a domestic animal.
True domestic animals have lived thousands of generations in captivity, and differ significantly from their wild ancestors both physically and psychologically. But tameness and domestication are not the same thing. Tameness is a degree of calm, a manageable demeanor, and a lack of aggression and fear.
Domestication is a concept that is often misunderstood by people as often as evolution. Evolution is not when animals get smarter, stronger or "improve" in a way that appeals to humans, and domestication is not solely the process of making animals less dangerous or producing them with a mind that would prefer human-controlled confinement.
Domestication syndrome is a term often used to describe the suite of phenotypic traits arising during domestication that distinguish crops from their wild ancestors. The term is also applied to animals and includes increased docility and tameness, coat color changes, reductions in tooth size, changes in craniofacial morphology, alterations in ear and tail form (e.g., floppy ears), more.

The aim of this book is to provide a brief, but reasonably comprehensive, introduction to the study of animal behaviour. It has grown out of my earlier book, An Introduction to Ethology, which was published 12 years ago and has been out of print for some time.

The domestication of dogs and cats (today's two most popular companion animals) was a bit different from the barnyard animals. And although Darwin began Variation with a discussion of the dog and cat, the two could hardly be more different from each other (or from contemporary barnyard domesticates) in temperament, utility, and evolutionary origin.
This book is a collection of chapters contributed by excellent experts on dog research. While behaviour remains the main focus of most chapters, the reader is also informed, amongst other things, about our actual understanding of dog domestication, the ecological perspectives of feral dogs and changing views in dog s:.
