A mechanism for diversity in warning signals: conspicuousness versus toxicity in poison frogs. (1/3)

Many animals advertise their chemical defense to predators with conspicuous coloration and unpalatability, but little is known about the information in these signal elements. To effectively avoid predation, is it more advantageous to invest in increased conspicuousness or greater noxiousness, or to allocate equally to both signal modalities? Using natural variation among poison frog species measured with spectral reflectance and toxicity assays, we tested the relative importance of warning signal components with predator-learning and avoidance experiments. We demonstrate that closely related species use alternative strategies: increasing either conspicuousness or toxicity affords equivalent avoidance by predators and provides protection to nontoxic mimic species. These equally effective predator avoidance tactics demonstrate different aposematic solutions for two potentially costly signal components, providing a mechanism for natural diversity in warning signals.  (+info)

Poisonous snakebite in Utah. (3/3)

A retrospective study was done of poisonous snakebite in Utah to determine the current epidemiology and scope of treatment, reviewing emergency department logs and other sources statewide for a 69-month period. Of 61 cases of poisonous snakebite identified, 13 occurred in snake hobbyists or venom laboratory personnel and were considered nonaccidental, and 48 were inflicted by native noncaptive snakes. These bites were considered accidental, and all were presumed to be from rattlesnakes. Nearly three fourths of the victims were male, ranging in age from 2 to 56 years (mean, 22 years). Most accidental bites occurred in areas of high human populations, during the summer months, in the afternoon or evening hours, and during recreational activities. Of the 48 bites, 11 (23%) were provoked. Two thirds of bites were on the upper extremities, and a third were on the lower extremities. More than half of the victims had no first-aid treatment recorded. Of those who did receive first aid, many were subjected to possibly harmful treatments, including tourniquets and ice application. The median time to a hospital was 68 minutes, with a range of 15 to 440 minutes. Swelling and discoloration were the most common signs and pain and paresthesia the most common symptoms. Half the bites resulted in minimal or no envenomation, 17 (35%) produced moderate envenomation, and 6 (12%) severe envenomation. Most patients with moderate or severe envenomation received antivenin, but the dosages given were usually less than recommended dosages. Five patients received surgical treatment based on clinical findings. One child died in a snake-handling incident. Long-term morbidity was unknown due to lack of follow-up. The Utah Poison Control Center was poorly utilized as a reporting and informational resource.  (+info)

Hi Alison and Brandon,. I wanted to check in and see how you all are doing this morning. If you would like more feedback on what we talked about yesterday I would be happy to talk to you.. I know its a hard decision. If you are having second thoughts I would be happy to go over what it would take to keep Sadie. If you want me to watch the dogs together I would be happy to do that too, but that has already been done and its appears its the resource guarding, interaction styles and refusal to defer, that is increasing the tension and the problems and they now have some fear and aggression toward each other.. Sadie did not "listen" to Ashs warning signals. (If I heard you correctly, you said he gave them) (BTW you never want to punish a growl. That does not mean you want your dog to growl, but the growl tells people and dogs to back off and if the growl is gone the dog just goes to the bite) I dont think Sadie is used to being around a dog that resource guards and separation would be a must as ...

Critical transitions are sudden, often irreversible, changes that can occur in a large variety of complex systems. Signals that warn of critical transitions are highly desirable, but their construction can be impeded by limited availability of data. We propose a method that can significantly reduce the amount of time series data required for a robust early warning signal by using other information about the system. This information is integrated through the framework of a generalized model. We demonstrate the applicability of the proposed approach through several examples, including a previously published fisheries model.. ...
An alarm system (100) to wake sleeping occupants in the event of an emergency has a receiver (105) for detecting a warning signal (130) emitted from an external device (125), such as a smoke or carbon monoxide detector. A processor (11) compares the received warning signal to a predetermined signal and, if they correspond, then a transmitter (115) transmits an alarm (135). The predetermined signal can be preprogrammed or it can be learned by alarm system. The alarm is at least one of an audible, visual, vibratory, and/or olfactory communication. A customized audible communication in a voice familiar to the occupants can be recorded and stored in the alarm system. In addition, the system may provide different alarms before and after motion is detected.

Conspicuousness and territoriality hypotheses explained nearly every instance of horns in female bovids (80 of 82 species; table 1). In all models, measures of conspicuousness (openness and exposure) explained the greatest amount of variance in the presence of horns, followed by female territoriality. That body mass was also a significant factor in the evolution of horns suggests that heavier animals are less able to rely on swift flight to escape predators and, as Packer (1983) suggested, may be better able to defend themselves against predators. Group size was less effective at explaining the variance in female horn presence and its significant role in past studies may be a byproduct of its significant correlation with the other predictors in the model. Figure 1 shows that horns probably evolved several times in female bovids for defence (bovines, antilopines, caprines, hippotragines and alcelaphines) and once for intrasexual combat (cephalophines). Interestingly, in female territorial species ...

A new mobile app has been developed by Japanese researches, giving epileptics prior warning of an oncoming seizure.. The app works through a remote sensor attached to the patients heart or collarbone area that monitors heart rate activity.. This technology is based on the idea that before seizures or convulsions, epileptics experience a deviation in nerve cell activity that then affects heart rate levels. By conducting similar tests on the normal heart rate, this variance is then processed as healthy or a danger to the patient.. If the patients heart rate is deemed irregular a warning signal is sent, via a vibration or noise, to alert the patient of an imminent seizure.. In test cases conducted by the Tokyo Medical and Dental University, five out of six patients were able to identify a warning signal before the seizure took hold.. Each of these patients received between a 30 second and several minute warning.. Although this technology is still only being used in rest stages it is hoped the ...

The book discusses the diversity of mechanisms by which prey can avoid or survive attacks by predators, both from ecological and evolutionary perspectives. There is a particular focus on sensory mechanisms by which prey can avoid being detected, avoid being identified, signal (perhaps sometimes dishonestly) to predators that they are defended or unpalatable. The book is divided into three sections. The first considers detection avoidance through, for example, background matching, disruptive patterning, countershading and counterillumination, or transparency and reflective silvering. The second section considers avoiding or surviving an attack if detection and identification by the predator has already taken place (i.e., secondary defences). The key mechanism of this section is aposematism: signals that warn the predator that a particular prey type is defended. One particularly interesting aspect of this is the sharing of the same signal by more than one defended species (the phenomenon of Mullerian

Have you ever watched a small child playing with its toy, trying to put a round peg in a square hole? There is usually a display of interest, then frustration and maybe anger. In time, the child, due to frustration, quits.. I see this tendency often in conventional pet health care. The doctors try everyday possible to put that round peg in a square hole, searching for a new method or a new angle, but in the end, it just wont work. Unfortunately, for health care, giving up usually means letting the pet go.. When we take a close look at conventional medicine, it is not hard to see why this happens so often. The system is set up to treat the symptoms and by doing this, hopefully, the problem will be resolved. We dont recognize that most of the symptoms are a signal from the body that there is a problem. Instead of looking for the underlying problem, we focus on fixing the signal. Imagine that your car suddenly stars flashing a warning signal on your dashboard panel that there is a problem with ...

This is why everyone should be empowered and know the questions to ask, and warning signals - to avoid becoming a sitting target in the dental chair.. In 2007 a fun and friendly dentist, Dr. Fred Quarnstrom DDS, published a book called "Open Wider - Your Wallet, Not Your Mouth". This is a consumers guide to dentistry. Fred claims this is everything you need to know for a visit to the dentist, and he dedicated the book to all the great dentists who treat patients fairly - with skill and dedication. Fred explains that not everyone is in good hands and he asks the question "who is looking ...

Snakebite is a neglected tropical disease considered a disease of the poor and prevalent among rural farmers. Although focus on snakebites among urban dwellers is generally minimal, the high rates of housing construction that characterize peri-urban zones of developing countries may predispose housing workers to snake-human encounters and bites, therefore creating differences in epidemiological factors underlying snakebites in urban and rural areas. Using demographic characteristic of snakebite victims, we assessed the occupational risk to snakebites in the capital city of Ghana. Farming was not as common among the urban dwellers as building works but the prevalence of snakebites was in the order: farmers (39%) , builders (22%) , Office Workers (5%) , Businessmen (5%) , and unemployed (4%) indicating the few farmers in the city had the highest risk of sustaining snakebites. The frequent work schedule of builders in uncompleted and housing under construction increased their snakebite risk as ...
Infectious disease outbreaks in plants threaten ecosystems, agricultural crops and food trade. Currently, several fungal diseases are affecting forests worldwide, posing a major risk to tree species, habitats and consequently ecosystem decay. Prediction and control of disease spread are difficult, mainly due to the complexity of the interaction between individual components involved. In this work, we introduce a lattice-based epidemic model coupled with a stochastic process that mimics, in a very simplified way, the interaction between the hosts and pathogen. We studied the disease spread by measuring the propagation velocity of the pathogen on the susceptible hosts. Our quantitative results indicate the occurrence of a critical transition between two stable phases: local confinement and an extended epiphytotic outbreak that depends on the density of the susceptible individuals. Quantitative predictions of epiphytotics are performed using the framework early-warning indicators for impending ...
My feeling is that the US is using its media to deliberately issue such "leaks" as a way to send warning signals to Pak, and apply pressure on it.

In other words - accept the drone strikes or else ...
In addition to being a fundamental norm, empathy for men under command is a moral obligation as well. The Indian army has been rocked by a large number of cases of suicides, fratricide and collective indiscipline. Stress is a key factor that drives soldiers to take the extreme step. When stress surpasses ability to handle, it generates the "fight-or-flight" response in many soldiers and becomes a threat to both physical and emotional well-being. In most cases, officers lack of empathy for the troops results in their failure to note the warning signals and take timely alleviating steps with due compassion. ...
