Article
Full-text available
Spontaneous mirror self-recognition is achieved by only a limited number of species, suggesting a sharp "cognitive Rubicon" that only few can pass. But is the demarcation line that sharp? In studies on monkeys, who do not recognize themselves in a mirror, animals can make a difference between their mirror image and an unknown conspecific. This evid...

Perceptual decision making involves choices between alternatives based on sensory information. Studies in primates and rodents revealed a stochastic perceptual evidence accumulation process that, after reaching threshold, results in action execution. Birds represent a cognitively highly successful vertebrate class that has been evolving independent...
Article
The opportunity and the information available to secure food resources drives foraging behaviour. We tested how inconsistent hole-food pairings and coverings could alter foraging performance, even when food availability is held constant. In our first experiment, we exposed pigeons (Columba livia) to a board in which each of the 60 covered holes con...

Manual behavioral observations have been applied in both environment and laboratory experiments in order to analyze and quantify animal movement and behavior. Although these observations contributed tremendously to ecological and neuroscientific disciplines, there have been challenges and disadvantages following in their footsteps. They are not onl...

The traditional Proof of Existence blockchain service on the Bitcoin network can be used to verify the existence of any research data at a specific point of time, and to validate the data integrity, without revealing its content. Several variants of the blockchain service exist to certify the existence of data relying on cryptographic fingerprintin...

The Pavlovian autoshaping paradigm has often been used to assess the behavioral effects of reward omission on behavior. We trained pigeons to receive a food reward (unconditioned stimulus, or UCS) following illumination of a response key (conditioned stimulus, or CS). In Experiment 1, 1 group of pigeons was trained with two 100% predictive CS-UCS a...

Since its launch just over a decade ago by the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, the distributed ledger technology (DLT) blockchain has followed a breathtaking trajectory into manifold application spaces. This study aper analyses how key factors underpinning the success of this ground-breaking “Internet of value” technology, such as staking of collateral (“s...
Conference Paper
The set of transactions that occurs on the public ledger of an Ethereum network in a specific time frame can be represented as a directed graph, with vertices representing addresses and an edge indicating the interaction between two addresses. While there exists preliminary research on analyzing an Ethereum network by the means of graph analysis, m...

Proof of Existence as a blockchain service has first been published in 2013 as a public notary service on the Bitcoin network and can be used to verify the existence of a particular file in a specific point of time without sharing the file or its content itself. This service is also available on the Ethereum based bloxberg network, a decentralized...

Article
Nano-ZnO enters landfills mostly through disposal of cosmetics, sunscreens and catalysts. However, its effects on waste degradation are still unclear. In this paper, a fuzzy-based model is proposed to predict biogas and methane production from simulated bioreactor landfill with and without ZnO nanomaterials. Eight deterministic inputs (pH, RedOx po...

Question
I want to record pigeons in a behavioural experiment task and analyze the data with Matlab or a behavioural analyzing program. I would like to mark the pigeons to analyze them easier. What would you suggest for better analyzing? It should be stable at least during the experiment period (pigeon feather is really dusty) and animal-friendly.

Fate and impact of NPs during waste stabilization in landfills, which play a very crucial role in integrated waste management systems, is mostly unknown. Moreover, there are no other studies in the literature that investigated the long term impact of nano-ZnO in simulated landfills. For this reason, aim of this study will be understand the fate, transport and impact of nano-ZnO on waste stabilization including landfill gas generation.
