The Encyclopedia of Applied Animal Behaviour and Welfare
The Encyclopedia of Applied Animal Behaviour and Welfare, Welfare research has established a range of scientific indicators of stress, welfare and suffering in animals that can be applied to all aspects of improving their welfare through good housing and management, and the topic continues to grow in importance among both professionals and the public.
The practical focus of this authoritative, comprehensive encyclopedia aims to promote the understanding and improvement of animals’ behaviour without compromising welfare. Under the editorial direction of Professor Daniel Mills, the UK’s first specialist in veterinary behavioural medicine, over 180 international experts have contributed a wealth of fully cross-referenced entries from concise definitions to detailed short essays on biological, practical, clinical and ethical aspects of behaviour and welfare in domestic, exotic, companion and zoo animals.
This concern is not simply a peripheral matter or distraction, but has a moral dimension too, and so it is important that we reflect and are guided by ethicists in our decisions when it comes to our interactions with other species. It is with this in mind that this text was developed. Download: The Biology of Animal Stress
This publication has been an enormous undertaking, and would not have been possible without an excellent team of editors (Jeremy Marchant-Forde, Paul McGreevy, David Morton, Christine Nicol, Clive Phillips, Peter Sandøe and Ron Swaisgood) to whom I am particularly grateful, and the large number of academics who have so willingly given their time and shared their knowledge.
I am struck by the generosity of so many in helping to ensure that this project became a reality and I believe this is largely because of a common passion for our disciplines and care for, and about, animals. I have learned much and it has been a genuine honour for me to work with so many distinguished scientists in compiling this text.
