Identification methods in newborn C57BL/6 mice: a developmental and behavioural evaluation.
We conclude that toe clipping might even be advisable in newborn mice at a very young age, when genotyping is needed. Toe tattoo ink puncture is also a good identification method for newborn mice and transponder implantation should only be used in older newborns or applied at weaning....
Harmonic radar: assessing the impact of tag weight on walking activity of Colorado potato beetle, plum curculio, and western corn rootworm.
The impact of electronic dipole tags on the walking activity of three insects was determined using video tracking software. Results varied within and between the three species studied. The heaviest tag mounted on the pronotum of the Colorado potato beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata (Say), reduced it...

Identifying and prioritizing ungulate migration routes for landscape-level conservation.
We present a general framework using the Brownian bridge movement model (BBMM) that: (1) provides a probabilistic estimate of the migration routes of a sampled population, (2) distinguishes between route segments that function as stopover sites vs. those used primarily as movement corridors, and (3)...

Estimating habitat selection when GPS fix success is less than 100%.
We present a habitat selection model that accounts for missing locations due to habitat-induced data losses, called a resource selection function (RSF) for GPS fix success. The model's formulation is similar to adjusting estimates of probability of occupancy when detection is less than 100% in patch...
A statistical approach to identifying the batch of origin of mixed-meat products using DNA profiles.
We present a statistical method that uses DNA profiles to verify or refute the contention that a particular mixed-meat product came from a particular manufacturing batch. This method involves randomly isolating a number of individual DNA samples (comprising an unknown number of individual genotypes)...
Future of animal ID system unclear.
Characterization of animals with microchips entering animal shelters.
Of 7,704 animals, strays accounted for slightly more than half (4,083 [53.0%]), with the remainder classified as owner-relinquished animals (3,225 [41.9%]) and other (396 [5.1%]). Of 3,425 stray animals for which animal shelters reported that the owner was found, a higher percentage of dog owners (2...
Evaluation of pain and inflammation associated with hot iron branding and microchip transponder injection in horses.
Hot iron branding elicited a significantly stronger aversive reaction indicative of pain than did microchip transponder injection (odds ratio [OR], 12.83). Allodynia quantified by means of skin sensitivity to von Frey monofilaments was significantly greater after hot iron branding than after microch...
