ANSC*4090 Applied Animal Behaviour F (3-0) [0.50]
This course deals with why domesticated animals behave as they do with reference to causation, function, ontogeny and phylogeny. Basic principles are illustrated by examples taken from all the common domesticated and captive species. Emphasis is placed on the application of behavioural knowledge to improve captive environments and animal production systems. Designing housing, facilities and management procedures to suit the behaviour of the animals in question is also covered.
