Ethology is the scientific and objective study of animal behavior, and is a sub-topic of zoology. The focus of ethology is on animal behavior under natural conditions, as opposed to behaviorism, which focuses on behavioral response studies in a laboratory setting.
Many naturalists have studied aspects of animal behavior throughout history. The modern discipline of ethology is generally considered to have begun during the 1930s with the work of Dutch biologist Nikolaas Tinbergen and by Austrian biologists Konrad Lorenz and Karl von Frisch, joint winners of the 1973 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Ethology is a combination of laboratory and field science, with a strong relation to some other disciplines such as neuroanatomy, ecology, and evolution. Ethologists are typically interested in a behavioral process rather than in a particular animal group, and often study one type of behavior, such as aggression, in a number of unrelated animals.
Animal behavior is the bridge between the molecular and physiological aspects of biology and the ecological. Behavior is the link between organisms and environment and between the nervous system, and the ecosystem. Behavior is one of the most important properties of animal life. Behavior plays a critical role in biological adaptations. Behavior is how we humans define our own lives. Behavior is that part of an organism by which it interacts with its environment. Behavior is as much a part of an organisms as its coat, wings etc. The beauty of an animal includes its behavioral attributes.
For the same reasons that we study the universe and subatomic particles there is intrinsic interest in the study of animals. In view of the amount of time that television devotes to animal films and the amount of money that people spend on nature books there is much more public interest in animal behavior than in neutrons and neurons. If human curiosity drives research, then animal behavior should be near the top of our priorities.
OMICS International organizes 1000+ Global events every year across the Globe. OMICS International Veterinary Conferences a hub which covers the innards of diagnosing, treating and curing the diverse types of diseases in birds and animals sciences which serves as a major platform for the transfer of scientific knowledge through which are arranged parallel to the scientific-sessions.
Scope and Importance:
Many in our society are concerned with scientific illiteracy, the lack of interest that students have in science and the fact that women and minority groups are underrepresented in science. Courses in animal behavior and behavioral ecology serve as hooks to interest students in behavioral biology. At the University of Wisconsin, Madison more than 700 students a year take courses in animal behavior and behavioral ecology in the Departments of Anthropology, Psychology and Zoology, yet none of these courses serve as required courses for majors. Cornell University enrolls nearly 400 students in an Introduction to Behavior course that is required of only 60-70 students. Enrollment has grown by 30% in the last three years. At the University of Stirling, Scotland, 75% of graduates in Psychology enroll in the elective, non-required animal behavior course. At the University of Washington, Seattle, more than 300 students enroll each quarter in a basic animal behavior class. Similar results can be found on many other campuses.
For many students, especially females, these courses are their first introduction to behavioral biology. Many female undergraduates approach us to discuss graduate school and research careers after taking these courses. 75% or more of our graduate applicants are female. A good proportion of students enrolled in animal behavior courses become motivated for research careers, but there is little hope to offer them that they will actually be able to become practicing scientists when they finish due to severe limitations on research funding.
The scope of veterinary medicine is wide; covering all animal species, both domesticated and wild, with a wide range of conditions which can affect different species. Veterinary medicine is widely practiced, both with and without professional supervision. Professional care is most often led by a veterinary physician (also known as a vet, veterinary surgeon or veterinarian), but also by paraveterinary workers such as veterinary nurses or technicians. This can be augmented by other paraprofessionals with specific specialisms such as animal physiotherapy or dentistry, and species relevant roles such as farriers. The use of livestock medicines on the dairy farm by producers and veterinarians is important for disease prevention and control. Management practices which prevent disease will reduce the need for drug treatment. Planned animal health and production programs commit the milk producer, the veterinarian and other herd advisors to the implementation of herd management policies which optimize health and production.
The global veterinary health market is valued at $24.80 billion in 2014. Expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.86% to 2019, the demand for animal healthcare products and services globally is set to reach $34.39 billion by 2019. The Veterinary Services industry is currently in the growth phase of its life cycle. Industry value added (IVA), which measures an industry's contribution to the overall economy, is expected to grow at an annualized rate of 2.2% during the ten years to 2020.Overall, the industry has benefited from growing pet ownership, mounting awareness of animal health issues and the availability of advanced surgical and diagnostic procedures.
