The chemistry of child neglect: Do oxytocin and vasopressin mediate the effects of early experience? (The National Academy of Sciences, 2005-12-20)Research described in a recent issue of PNAS by Wismer Fries, Ziegler, Kurian, Jacoris, and Pollak (1) reveals significant group differences in two brain-derived neuropeptides, oxytocin and vasopressin, between family- ...
Does mate choice take place in free-living prairie voles Microtus ochrogaster? Evidence from field data (Current Zoology, 2004)We used live-trapping data collected during a long-term study of the social organization of prairie vole Microtus ochrogaster, to investigate pair formation and break-up in this species. Most male-female pairs that formed ...
(The National Academy of Sciences, 1996-10)Prairie voles (Microtus ochrogaster) are monogamous rodents that form pair bonds characterized by a preference for a familiar social partner. In male prairie voles, exposure to either the stress of swimming or exogenous ...
Estimating philopatry and natal dispersal of microtine rodents through intensive live-trapping at nests of social groups (Psychonomic Society, Inc., 1992)Estimates of philopatry and natal dispersal of the prairie vole, Microtus ochrogaster, determined by intensive live-trapping at social group nests were assessed by comparison of estimates when a grid pattern within the ...
(Illinois State Academy of Science, 1987)Rarity of the blonde color morph in prairie vole populations is attributed to: a recessive trait requiring breeding between siblings or parents and their offspring for the color morph to be prominent within a population; ...
(Current Zoology, 2005)We summarize the social organization and mating system of the prairie vole Microtus ochrogaster as determined from an extensive field study in east-central Illinois, USA. The fundamental social organization of M. ochrogaster ...
