Dispersal pattern and effective population size of the beaver.
TLDR
The dispersal pattern of the beaver was studied by intensive livetrapping, tagging, and observation in Allegany State Park and its vicinity in New York from 1984 to 1996, indicating that beavers, especially males, may prefer to disperse to the near - est available sites. Expand
Anogenital gland secretions code for sex and age in the giant panda, Ailuropoda melanoleuca
TLDR
This result shows that information about sex and age could be coded in analog form and could also be digitally coded by the presence or absence of some of the 56 compounds, in addition to the analog coding. Expand
Putative chemical signals about sex, individuality, and genetic background in the preputial gland and urine of the house mouse (Mus musculus).
TLDR
Chemical analysis shows that the genetically more closely related ICR and KM strains had a higher similarity in the volatile compositions of preputial glands and urine than that between ICR or KM and C57BL/6. Expand
Potential Chemosignals in the Anogenital Gland Secretion of Giant Pandas, Ailuropoda melanoleuca, Associated with Sex and Individual Identity
TLDR
Quantitative comparison of the relative abundances of the 20 main GC peaks revealed that 5-methylhydantoin, indole, and erucic acid are putative female pheromones, whereas squalene and hydroquinone are putteromones. Expand
Sex- and Gonad-Affecting Scent Compounds and 3 Male Pheromones in the Rat
TLDR
Squalene, 2-heptanone, and 4-ethyl phenol were indeed male pheromone molecules in rats and it is indicated that E,E-β-farnesene and E-α-farrellesene, both richer in females than males, might be putative female phersomones. Expand
Sibling recognition in the beaver: a field test for phenotype matching
TLDR
It was concluded that information about kinship in the beaver is coded in the AGS but not in the castoreum, the mechanism of phenotype matching is used in beaver sibling recognition, and the cue used in phenotype matching can be learned and used for recognition of related individuals by an unrelated individual. Expand
Possible coding for recognition of sexes, individuals and species in anal gland volatiles of Mustela eversmanni and M. sibirica.
TLDR
By comparing same and opposite sexes between the two Mustela species, it is found that qualitative differences in the anal gland secretion are most likely to be used to code for information about species, corresponding to the idea of digital coding. Expand
Use of anal gland secretion to distinguish the two beaver species Castor canadensis and C. fiber
TLDR
It is concluded that the colour and viscosity of the AGS can be used for a quick and easy identification of the two beaver species. Expand
Dual role of preputial gland secretion and its major components in sex recognition of mice
TLDR
It is shown that castration suppressed the production of the two putative pheromone compounds, further suggesting their association with maleness and suggests that they had opposing dual effects in sexual attractiveness in a dosage-dependent manner. Expand
Anal gland secretion codes for family membership in the beaver
TLDR
Investigating how information about family membership is coded by the individually specific anal gland secretion (AGS) in the beaver, Castor canadensis, found compounds were not equally important in coding family membership information, and the interactions among compounds were complex. Expand
