  1. 1. Behavioural differences and genetic relationships between four captive populations of red junglefowl (Gallus gallus) : possible implications for conservation

    Author : Jennie Håkansson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Red junglefowl; behavioural differences; genetic relationships; captive populations; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Conservation of species is to a large extent carried out by zoos where animals are kept in small populations under protected conditions. The ultimate goal of such ex situ conservation programs is to eventually reintroduce the animals into natural habitats to provide support for the survival of the species. READ MORE

  2. 2. From wolf to dog: Behavioural evolution during domestication

    Author : Christina Hansen Wheat; Hans Temrin; Clive Wynne; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Domestication syndrome; behavioural evolution; behaviorual ontogeny; correlated traits; sociability; playfulness; aggression; fear; Canis familiaris; Canis lupus; artificial selection; etologi; Ethology;

    Abstract : Biologists since Darwin have recognized that domestication, where species are selected to live in human-controlled environments, exerts strong selection on organisms and dramatically impacts their evolutionary trajectories. Across domesticated mammal species, characteristic morphological, physiological and behavioural changes occur simultaneously, as correlated traits, a phenomenon known as the domestication syndrome.

  3. 3. Defining and applying surrogate safety measures and behavioural indicators through site-based observations

    Author : Tim de Ceunynck; Trafik och väg; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Surrogate safety measures; behavioural indicators; traffic safety; site-based observations; traffic conflicts; traffic conflict techniques; road user interactions;

    Abstract : This dissertation looks into surrogate safety measures and behavioural indicators that are collected through site-based observations. Surrogate safety measures are defined as measurements that are used to describe the relationship between two road users in a traffic event for the purpose of quantifying the crash probability and/or the potential crash severity in a meaningful way.

  4. 4. Exercise-based physiotherapy management of partients with persistent, non-specific low back pain : A cognitive-behavioural approach to assessment and treatment in a primary care setting

    Author : Eva Johansson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; Back pain; physiotherapy; cognitive-behavioural; treatment; primary care; classification; single-case design; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; omvårdnadsforskning med medicinsk inriktning; Caring Sciences;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to develop, describe, and evaluate exercise-based physiotherapy management with a cognitive-behavioural approach in a primary care setting for individuals with subacute, recurrent, or chronic non-specific low back pain (LBP). A structured and integrated physiotherapy and cognitive-behavioural programme was developed and evaluated in controlled single-case studies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Screening, Targeting, Tailoring, and Implementation in Primary Health Care : An integrated physical therapy and behavioural medicine approach to persons with persistent musculoskeletal pain

    Author : Maria Sandborgh; Eva Denison; Per Lindberg; Christina Opava; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Caring sciences; physical therapy; behavioural medicine; screening; chronic pain; primary health care; Vårdvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with a behavioural medicine approach to the management of patients with persistent musculoskeletal pain in primary health care physical therapy. The main aims of the thesis were; to develop, and evaluate the psychometric properties of, a screening instrument for risk of disability and; to evaluate the implementation and effects of a targeted and tailored treatment.
