    Sammanfattning : The Birka Excavations 1990-95 provided a unique opportunity to excavate a Swedish Viking Age town stratigraphically, allowing the finds - including extensive and well-preserved faunal remains - to be dated accurately. This in turn has given the opportunity to study the nature and development of Viking Age animal husbandry in a new, closer perspective. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Selection, Maternal Effects and Inbreeding in Reindeer Husbandry

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala, Sweden : Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Författare :Lars Rönnegård; Högskolan Dalarna.; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :breeding programme; communal grazing; randombred populations; Rangifer tarandus tarandus; semidomestic reindeer; gene flow; reindeer; animal breeding; gene flow; random mating; breeding methods; genetic inheritance; population structure; extensive husbandry; sweden;

    Sammanfattning : In extensive grazing systems where several owners’ flocks are allowed to mix, selection strategies will also interact, due to gene flow between flocks. The aim of the thesis was to analyse breeding schemes in terms of genetic gain and rate of inbreeding (?F), given the complexity of ownership and interaction of selection strategies within a mixing reindeer population.

    Sammanfattning : African green monkeys (AGMs) are highly susceptible to captivity-induced stress. An investigation of spontaneous deaths of laboratory confined AGMs at the Institute of Primate Research, Nairobi, Kenya over a period of 7.5 years documented mild to severe gastric mucosal erosions and ulcers in 83 of 260 (32%) necropsies.
