This observational study was conducted to characterize the thermal micro- climate that broilers experienced in commercial poultry transporters under various weather conditions and typical management practices in the South Central USA. We continuously monitored temperature and relative humidity in 45 interior locations of 28 fully-loaded commercial trailers over 2 year spans from 2015–2016 in South Central USA. In the cold season, double boarding of the exterior area of the transport modules main...

Summary Over 95% of the animals on the planet are invertebrates. Despite this, their usage by humans is limited to a relatively few species. Food uses for invertebrates include shell-fish, such as crustaceans (e.g., shrimp, crabs, and lobsters) and mollusks (e.g., oysters), honey from bees, Cephalopod ink for Italian and Spanish dishes, such as black pasta and squid in ink soup, and the Echinoderms, sea cucumbers, and sea urchins. Nonfood uses of invertebrates include silk produced by the mulber...

There are many nonfood uses of animals some of which are for leather and furs, go back to almost a million years of human development. This chapter discusses the multiple nonfood uses of vertebrate animals by people. Live animals are the sources of wool; hair; some hormones; antitoxins; animal toxins; muscle power for riding, pulling, and carrying; higher odor senses, such as odor detection in dogs; and innate and learned behaviors, such as those in working dogs together with service and therapy...

Animals have a major impact on human health globally with over 5 million deaths attributed to animals due to vector-borne diseases, major zoonotic disease, and snake bites, and about 18 deaths per 100,000 people in Western countries, such as the USA. Based on mortality figures in Western countries, such as the USA, people have a much greater effect on the death rate of humans due to diseases (based on our own lifestyle), murder, and suicide than due to animals. Globally, many of the most serious...

Summary There are similarities and marked differences between how animals and humans perceive their environment. Animals and humans perceive sound, light, chemicals (taste and smell), touch, and the earth’s magnetic field. In comparing humans with animals, there are differences in the following: • Auditory perception: Ultrasonic sound (high frequencies of sound) is detected by some animals, such as cats, bats, rats, and mice, but not by humans. Moreover, there is spatial location of the source o...

Internal parasitic infections are caused by protozoa, nematodes (round worms), cestodes (tape worms), and trematodes (flukes). Over a billion people are infected with parasites at any given time in the world. This includes over 600 million people infected with pinworms, over with 500 million with hookworms, over 350 million with intestinal protozoa, over 250 million with schistosomes, and 200 million with the malaria-causing parasite, Plasmodium. These infections can result in death, with Trypan...

Humans have a detrimental impact on natural habitat due to various activities including deforestation, urbanization, roads, the energy sector (renewable and coal), mining, and climate change. The most important form of habitat destruction is deforestation either to develop land for agriculture (70%) or to harvest lumber intensively. There is ongoing economic pressure to convert the forests of the Amazon to pasture and arable land, for example, for corn and soybean production for the growing pig ...
