TH10 - The Behavioral Ecology of Dogs

Oct 16, 2014 1:30pm ‐ Oct 16, 2014 4:45pm

Standard: $20.00

Description

There are estimated to be a billion dogs in the world! 850 million of them are living outside the control of humans. By "control" we mean fences and leashes, spaying/neutering, controlled breeding, nutrition and diet, training, veterinary care, and many other factors humans take for granted when it comes to dogs. This session will look at populations of dogs who not only fend for themselves, find their own feed, and have a wonderful reproductive life, - they are actually are one of the most successful species on the planet.  How do they do it?

Learning Objectives:

  • Consider dogs in the way a biologist might
  • Consider dogs in the way an ecologist might
  • Consider dogs in the way an ethologist might
