Domestication challenges our understanding of human-environment relationships because it blurs the dichotomy between what is artificial and what is natural. In domestication, biological evolution, environmental change, techniques and practices, anthropological trajectories and sociocultural choices are inextricably interconnected. Domestication is essentially a hybrid phenomenon that needs to be explored with hybrid scientific approaches. Hybrid Communities: Biosocial Approaches to Domestication and Other Trans-species Relationships attempts for the first time to explore domestication viewed from across disciplines both in its origins and as an ongoing process. This edited collection proposes new biosocial approaches and concepts which integrate the methods of social sciences, archaeology and biology to shed new light on domestication in diachrony and in synchrony. This book will be of great interest to all scholars working on human-environment relationships, and should also attract readers from the fields of social anthropology, archaeology, genetics, ecology, botany, zoology, history and philosophy.

'For users looking for specific information on freshwater aquarium fish this will be a useful and interesting resource' American Reference Books Annual 2007. 'Any home or library collection strong in aquarium references -and many a fish store - will find this packed with in-depth detail perfect for setting up an aquarium' The Midwest Book Review. This comprehensive full-colour reference covers 500 of the most popular freshwater aquarium fish. Along with a description and a colour photograph for each species, there is at-a-glance information on its behavior, diet, breeding and the aquarium environment. Substantive and well organized for easy navigation, it is tailored to the needs of a wide range of freshwater aquarium hobbyists. Beginners will start their new hobby with confidence and experienced keepers can use the book as a reference to equipment, aquarium maintenance and fish species. A key decision for the aquarium owner, new and experienced - and also one of the most fun to make - is choosing the fish. 500 Freshwater Aquarium Fish is a "window shopping" trip with an aquarium specialist ready to offer crucial advice. The directory details every species appropriate for a freshwater aquarium and while most of the fish featured require a heated aquarium, there are other popular varieties that can be kept in an unheated one (such as bloodfin tetras, white clouds and the beginner classic, goldfish). The book organizes the freshwater aquarium species in major groups, among them: Cichlids, including angelfish and discus; Catfish; Cyprinids, including barbs, danios, koi and goldfish; Characoids, including tetras, neons and piranhas; Loaches and suckers; Gouramis, including bettas, paradise fish and snakeheads; Rainbow fish and blue-eyes; Livebearers, including mollies and platies. Many new freshwater aquarium species have been discovered in recent years, including five dwarf gobies, a flasher wrasse, the "Oreo Chromis" and a Corydoras catfish. All these and more are covered in this comprehensive and useful reference.

Advances in Cattle Welfare provides a targeted overview of contemporary issues in dairy and beef cattle welfare. The volume addresses welfare-related topics in both research and on-farm applications. Opening with an introduction to cattle production systems, the book covers the three major areas of cattle welfare; on-farm welfare assessment, behavioral priorities of cattle and novel perspectives on specific aspects of management. Chapters examine the key issues within each area, including such topics as the goals and measures included in welfare assessments, the importance to cattle of access to pasture and engaging in social behavior, human-animal interactions, painful procedures, and disease and metabolic challenge. This book is an essential part of the wider ranging series Advances in Farm Animal Welfare, with coverage of cattle, sheep and pigs. With its expert editor and international team of contributors, Advances in Cattle Welfare is a key reference tool for welfare research scientists and students, veterinarians involved in welfare assessment, and indeed anyone with a professional interest in the welfare of cattle.

The Culture of Animals in Antiquity provides students and researchers with well-chosen and clearly presented ancient sources in translation, some well-known, others undoubtedly unfamiliar, but all central to a key area of study in ancient history: the part played by animals in the cultures of the ancient Mediterranean. It brings new ideas to bear on the wealth of evidence - literary, historical and archaeological - which we possess for the experiences and roles of animals in the ancient world. Offering a broad picture of ancient cultures in the Mediterranean as part of a wider ecosystem, the volume is on an ambitious scale. It covers a broad span of time, from the sacred animals of dynastic Egypt to the imagery of the lamb in early Christianity, and of region, from the fallow deer introduced and bred in Roman Britain to the Asiatic lioness and her cubs brought as a gift by the Elamites to the Great King of Persia. This sourcebook is essential for anyone wishing to understand the role of animals in the ancient world and support learning for one of the fastest growing disciplines in Classics.

Domestic animals are an integral component of human leisure experience and can enhance the physical, social, and mental wellbeing of humans. The interplay of human and animal experiences of justice, wellbeing, rights, and roles within leisure is the central theme of this book. Research explores the position of domesticated animals in human leisure experiences, in a wide array of leisure settings. Chapters question whether domestic animals may have a desire for leisure that is different from human leisure, whether animals have and wish to fulfil needs for meaningful leisure or non-leisure, and whether human leisure needs and desires may coincide or contradict wellbeing interests of animals. This book provides a venue for the dissemination and exploration of research, which champions the welfare and rights of these animals to have their needs and interests in leisure recognised. It moves the debate about animals in leisure beyond the current limits which have seen research mainly confined to the exotic `other' rather than more mundane, everyday domestic animals. This book will be of interest to individuals in the fields of tourism ethics, zoology, animal behaviour, and leisure studies.
