The effect of urban and rural habitats and resource type on activity budgets of commensal rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) in Bangladesh
Differences in the activity budgets of rural and urban dwelling macaques were due largely to the differences in available food resources, and immature of both sexes spent significantly more time on feeding and object manipulation/playing and less time resting than adults.
Enclosure environment affects the activity budgets of captive Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata)
Interestingly, in the vegetated enclosure, time spent feeding on natural vegetation was equal to the amount of time spent feed on provisioned food, suggesting that factors other than energetic and nutritional needs may be important determinants of the activity budget of the species.
Studies on the ecology and breeding biology of Chestnut-tailed Starling, Sturnus malabaricus (Gmelin) were carried out in Dhaka and Nilphamari districts and found this bird mainly found in parties and small flocks on the upper canopy and leaf of the trees to feed on insects.
Age class differences in the feeding behavior of captive Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscataia) in the forested and nonvegetated enclosure groups.
This study revealed the benefits concerning environmental enrichment of a naturally forested enclosure, which provides captive primates the opportunity to exhibit age class and species-typical feeding behaviors of importance for their dietary maintenance and general health.
The foraging behavior of Japanese macaques Macaca fuscata in a forested enclosure: Effects of nutrient composition, en- ergy and its seasonal variation on the consumption of natu- ral plant foods
This pre- liminary investigation showed that the forested enclosure allowed troop members to more fully express their species typical flexi- ble behavior by challenging them to adjust their foraging behavior to seasonal changes of plant item diversity and nutritional con- tent, also providing the possibility for individuals to nutritionally enhance their diet.
Diversity and Population of Avifauna of Two Urban Sites in Dhaka, Bangladesh
Preference for nesting sites were significantly higher on the indigenous trees in both study sites, meaning that vegetation is important factor affecting the abundance of urban avifauna.
The effect of urban and rural habitats on activity budgets of the endangered Northern Plains sacred langur, Semnopithecus entellus (Dufresne, 1797) in Jessore, Bangladesh
The Northern Plains sacred langurs showed a considerable behavioral plasticity in response to variation of habitat and resources, and the knowledge of these differences is important for the conservation and management of this species.
High hatching success of saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) in a commercial Crocodile Farm of Bangladesh
This study suggests that conservation of this endangered species is possible by captive breeding and reintroduction program and captive environment in controlled weather and predation might improve hatching rates.
Food consumption of saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus Porosus) in a reptile farm of Bangladesh
Crocodilians can increase their level of consumption during warmer months of the year while decreasing it in the cooler months, by considering this factor it may gain prosperity of crocodile farming in Bangladesh.
Quantification of Carbon Stock and Tree Diversity of Homegardens in Rangpur District, Bangladesh
Homegarden systems are suggested to hold a large potential for carbon (C) sequestration, especially for climate change mitigation and adaptation under changing environment. This is because of the
