Abstract

Most of us would accept that weeks or months of hell are worse than minutes or hours. In biological considerations of stress this difference is important because animals use different coping methods when problem situations are prolonged rather than brief. Persistent problems are also often the major causes for concern when we are judging the welfare of domestic animals, or people.
