Quantitative ethograms were performed using interval focal animal sampling (27) during a 10minute video segment of the cockatiels in the aviaries.
The behavioral data from ethograms was electronically collated and collectively analyzed using IBM SPSS (2013) statistical package which was used to generate the Pearson product moment coefficient of correlation statistics presented in the results.
Activities measured in ethograms for the categories: adult males, adult females and pups of the Guadalupe fur seal at San Benito Archipelago, in the territory with the best conditions of observations and individuals, from July 1 to July 18, 2007.
Ethograms depict patterns of animal behavior; as such, they are useful tools to permit students to generate--and, with appropriate replication, test--hypotheses about their observations.
deletron (59) is comparable to that for other squids for which ethograms are available: 16 components (chromatic only) in Doryteuthis plei (Hanlon, 1982), 59 mentioned for Sepioteuthis affinis (Mauris, 1989), 28 in Loligo forbesii (Porteiro et al., 1990), 36 in Loligo reynaudii (Hanlon et al, 1994), 56 in Doryteuthis pealeii (Hanlon et al., 1999b), 39 in Doryteuthis opalescens (Hunt et al., 2000), and 48 in Sepioteuthis australis (Jantzen and Havenhand, 2003).
In this study we also proposed a new sampling procedure for quantitative ethograms that minimizes problems of pseudoreplication.
Conflicts over status, preferred companions, access to food or other resources or territorial issues can represented by graphic or pictorial representations (ethograms).
The topology of the ethograms for the prod test was more complex than for the puff test for all taxa.
Some of the behaviors described in the cetacean ethograms, such as leaping, are shared among different species (Norris and Dohl, 1979; Dudzinski, 1996; Muller et al., 1998), while other behaviors, such as spraying displayed by orca, Orcinus orca (Martinez and Klinghammer, 1978), are specific to only that species.

Degree of postoperative pain was evaluated 6 times/d for 4 days by use of 3 methods: an electronic perch for assessment of weight-bearing load differential of the pelvic limbs, 4 numeric rating pain scales for assessment of pain (all of which involved the observer in the same room as the bird), and analysis of video-recorded (observer absent) partial ethograms for bird activity and posture.
