  1. 1. Traumatic Brain Injuries: Animal Experiments and Numerical Simulations to Support the Development of a Brain Injury Criterion

    Author : Jacobo Antona; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; traumatic brain injuries; traffic safety; concussions; animal experiments; finite element method;

    Abstract : Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) account for about half of the 1 300 000 annual traffic related deaths and the 50 000 000 injuries worldwide. The burden of TBI is ethically unacceptable and economically unsustainable. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spatial heterogeneity and biotic interactions scaling from experiments to natural systems

    Author : Ulf Bergström; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ecology; Ekologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; zooekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : Much of current ecological theory stems from experimental studies. These studies have often been conducted in closed systems, at spatial scales that are much smaller than the systems of interest. READ MORE

  3. 3. Animal transport and welfare with special emphasis on transport time and vibration

    Author : Samuel Aradom Messmer; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Farm animals are transported several times during their lifetime and often long distances, and most of them are to slaughter. During transport they are exposed to a number of stress inducing factors. The main objective of the thesis work was to study the welfare of pigs, cows and bulls during transport from farm to abattoir. READ MORE

  4. 4. Computer Vision Based Analysis of Animal Behavior

    University dissertation from Faculty of Engineering, Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Mathematical Statistics, Lund University

    Author : Tobias Palmér; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-02-09]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Datorseende; bildanalys; djurbeteende; neurofysiologi; tillämpningar; refraktion; Computer vision; animal tracking; behavioral analysis; refractions; underwater images; relative pose;

    Abstract : The behavior of animals is commonly studied in medicine and biology. There is a large variation in what animals are studied, in experimental paradigms and purpose.However, many studies on animal behavior have at least one thing in common - it typically involves measuring or studying the kinematics of the animal.

  5. 5. Modeling Collective Decision-Making in Animal Groups

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Mathematics

    Author : Boris Granovskiy; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; collective animal behavior; collective intelligence; swarm intelligence; wisdom of crowds; mathematical modeling; stochastic modeling; agent-based modeling; Markov chain models;

    Abstract : Many animal groups benefit from making decisions collectively. For example, colonies of many ant species are able to select the best possible nest to move into without every ant needing to visit each available nest site. READ MORE
