The present paper describes two experiments in which preferences of laboratory mice for materials which could serve as cage enrichment were investigated. In the first experiment, presence of nesting material (paper towel or tissue) and the presence of a nest box (perforated metal or clear perspex box) were tested against each other. On average, the 47 mice(More)
SUMMARY Forty-five somatic buffalo-hamster hybrid clones were analysed for the presence or absence of PCR products of 10 primers. Five syntenic groups were identified: CGA-D9S1; CD18-D1S4; OXT-PRNP; LDLR-D7S3; BSPN-D14S2. These same syntenic groups were reported to be syntenic in cattle and were assigned to U2 (BTA 9), U10 (BTA 1), U11 (BTA 13), U22 (BTA(More)
Published as: Nesting material as environmental enrichment has no adverse effects on behavior and physiology of laboratory mice. SUMMARY Environmental enrichment may improve the quality of life of captive animals by altering the environment of animals so that they are able to perform more natural behaviour. When enrichment is introduced into an animal's(More)
