1. Galečić, Nevenka M., 1963-. Евалуација употребног потенцијала паркова Београда у функцији операционализације процеса пејзажног пројектовања.

Degree: Šumarski fakultet, 2016, Univerzitet u Beogradu

Биотехничке науке - Пејзажна архитектура и хортикултура / Biotechnological sciences - Landscape architecture and horticukture

За потребе евалуације употребног потенцијала паркова Београда одабрана су четири парка: Ташмајдан, Беле воде, Вождовачки и Чубурски. Употребни потенцијал паркова је вреднован са два аспекта: просторног (анализа просторне позиционираности корисника и њихових активности) и сазнајног (вредновање паркова у односу на ставове корисника простора). За евалуацију употребног потенцијала паркова коришћени су следећи критеријуми: приступачност простора, интензитет коришћења простора, угодност простора и социјални аспект простора. Интензитет употребе паркова за одвијање различитих активности утврђен је компаративном анализом образаца коришћења паркова и временских периода у току дана, недеље и године. Добијени резултати указују да се квалитет паркова изражава кроз њихов употребни потенцијал, односно спектар људских активности које се на њима одвијају. Паркови који могу да се користе на различите начине су успешнији у односу на оне паркове који имају ограничену намену. Применом савремених технологија (техника GIS-а) формирана је база података која представља допринос разумевању и динамичком сагледавању употребе паркова, односно визуелизацији различитих структура корисника, као и облика и интензитета њихових активности у парковима. Обрасци коришћења паркова представљају базу података за формирање препорука и принципа који ће се имплементирати у процес пејзажног пројектовања паркова. Такође, установљен је модел посматрања понашања корисника и анализирања њихових потреба и очекивања, који превасходно има за циљ успостављање емпиријских сазнања о савременој употреби паркова.

2. Troxell-Smith, Sandra M. Welfare Assessment Through Foraging: Understanding the Animals' Points of View.

Degree: 2016, University of Illinois – Chicago

As a behavioral ecologist, I implement studies based in foraging theory and ecology to develop a quantifiable metric to understand animal environmental preferences, and how those preferences influence animal decision-making. I utilized this approach in laboratory, zoo, and wild species, and each of my five dissertation chapters investigates a novel application and integration of foraging ecology and animal behavior. Chapter I: I utilized foraging ecology principles to determine effects of domestication on the problem-solving and foraging strategies of laboratory vs. wild-caught house mice (Mus musculus). Domesticated laboratory strains adopted more energy-efficient foraging strategies, and responded more favorably to foraging challenges than their wild counterparts (Troxell-Smith et. al, 2016). This study advanced existing literature regarding how the domestication process influences problem-solving and resource acquisition in laboratory species. Chapter II: I assessed the environmental preferences of zoo-housed okapi (Okapia johnstoni). Based on intensity of foraging in experimental patches, I found that individuals greatly varied their response to, and utilization of, the same exhibit space. I conclude that individual behavioral differences in environmental preference must be incorporated into animal management and welfare decisions. Chapter III: I implemented foraging patch studies to: a) quantify the efficacy of patch use studies as an enrichment opportunity, and b) determine the spatial and foraging preferences for zoo-housed Parma wallabies (Macropus parma), and Patagonian maras (Dolichotis patagonum). Food patches reliably revealed environmental preferences, increased foraging time, and decreased the frequency of inactive behaviors for both species, demonstrating the utility of implementing the food patch technique as a method to assess captive animal welfare. Chapter IV: I examined the effects of implementing social separation (visual barriers) on stereotypic behavior in an adult female okapi (Troxell-Smith & Miller, 2016). Visual barrier installation drastically reduced okapi stereotypic behavior, suggesting that captive social situations have important impacts on animal welfare. Chapter V: I established personality metrics for ten individual brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) in the Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park, NSW, Australia. Possums were released and monitored to determine individual differences in food quality preference and response to environmental risk. This work advances understanding of how individual personality traits influence environmental and ecological choices. Advisors/Committee Members: Brown, Joel S. (advisor), Whelan, Christopher J. (committee member), Leonard, John (committee member), Schmidt, Jennifer (committee member), Nelson, Karin (committee member), Watters, Jason V. (committee member).
