Special Issue "Animal Behavior in Intensive Culture Environment"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 February 2022.
We are pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on “Animal Behavior in Intensive Culture Environment” in the Applied Sciences journal. The growing demand for animal products has changed the production environment in recent decades. However, technological pressure often does not consider the natural behavior of animals, which poses problems from both the production and the animal welfare side. Thus, the aim of this Special Issue is to collect alterations in animal behavior concerning the technological factors that cause them and the possibilities for resolving their conflict.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not be limited to) the following: aquatic or terrestrial animal behavior, animal personality, genetic selection, social stress, heat tolerance, human–animal interaction, aggression, and reproductive behavior.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Tamás Molnár
