A comparative study of ejaculate traits in three endangered ungulates with different levels of inbreeding: fluctuating asymmetry as an indicator of reproductive and genetic stress. (1/119)

We studied three closely related species of endangered gazelles (Gazella dorcas, Gazella dama and Gazella cuvieri) with different levels of inbreeding in order to determine at which intensities inbreeding influences ejaculate traits. We also examined whether fluctuating asymmetry (FA) is a reliable indicator of genetic as well as reproductive stress. Our results show that, within each population, the individual coefficient of inbreeding is inversely related to ejaculate quality only in the species with the highest levels of inbreeding (G. cuvieri). In addition, FA is a reliable indicator of individual levels of inbreeding in both the species with the highest levels of inbreeding (G. cuvieri) and the species with intermediate levels of inbreeding (G. dama). Thus, FA appears in individuals whose levels of inbreeding are still not high enough to affect male reproductive potential and should therefore be considered a sensitive indicator of genetic stress. Finally, FA is also a reliable indicator of male reproductive stress since it is related to individual semen quality in all the species studied.  (+info)

Natural transmission of foot-and-mouth disease virus between African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) and impala (Aepyceros melampus) in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. (2/119)

VP1 gene sequences of SAT-2 type foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) viruses recovered from impala and African buffalo in the Kruger National Park (KNP) were used to determine intra- and interspecies relationships of viruses circulating in these wildlife populations. On this basis five distinct lineages of SAT-2 virus were identified in routine sampling of oesophageopharyngeal epithelium from buffalo between 1988 and 1996. Different lineages were associated with discrete geographic sampling localities. Over the period 1985-95, four unrelated epizootics occurred in impala in defined localities within the KNP. Evidence for natural transmission of FMD between buffalo and impala is presented for the most recent 1995 outbreak, with data linking the 1985 and 1988/9 impala epizootics to viruses associated with specific buffalo herds.  (+info)

Annual ovarian cycles in an aseasonal breeder, the springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis). (3/119)

The springbok is an arid-adapted antelope inhabiting the desert and semidesert regions of southern Africa. Because it thrives in these sparsely vegetated areas, the springbok is of potential agricultural importance and the prospect of domestication has been speculated for many years. However, apart from observational studies on its breeding in the wild, suggesting it is an aseasonal breeder, little is known about the underlying reproductive endocrinology of this species. In this study, biweekly peripheral blood samples were collected from eight captive springbok ewes from October 1995 until September 1998 and analyzed for progesterone. At the start of the study, six ewes were prepubertal and cycling commenced spontaneously between November 1995 and June 1996. Cycling had already commenced in two ewes. At the end of November 1996, estrous cycles ceased abruptly in all ewes and restarted in April 1997. Cycling ceased again between December 1997 and February 1998 and restarted in June 1998 in six ewes; there was no cessation of estrous cycles in two ewes. Thus, although some individuals cycle continuously, there is a clear endocrine anestrus of between 4 and 5 mo in springbok, the timing and duration of which is synchronized between some individuals but the time of onset and cessation is variable from year to year. To ensure that the fluctuations we observed in progesterone levels were reliable indicators of changes in the estrous cycle, blood samples were collected every 6 h for 16 days in August 1998. A surge in LH secretion was observed in all ewes 55 +/- 5 h after the fall in progesterone. Progesterone levels increased again 45 +/- 8 h after the surge. A final study showed that the pattern of melatonin release in springbok exhibits a normal day/night profile, and thus photoperiodic information is transformed into an endocrine code to springbok but does not appear to affect reproduction. Rather, our data raise the possibility that the prevailing ambient temperature may influence the onset of ovarian activity in this species.  (+info)

An investigation of heavy metal exposure and risks to wildlife in the Kafue flats of Zambia. (4/119)

Exposure and ecological risks to heavy metals (copper, zinc, manganese, iron) at Lochnivar and Blue Lagoon National Parks in wildlife dependent on the Kafue river contaminated with mining waste was evaluated. Samples included water, fish, grasses and Kafue Lechwe (Kobus leche kafuensis) liver. At both parks copper ranged from 0.03-0.04 mg/l; 3.0-6.0 mg/kg; 11.0-44.0 mg/kg; trace -199.0 mg/kg; while zinc was 0.01 mg/l; 32.0-82.0 mg/kg; 15.0-21.0 mg/kg; and 52.0-138.0 mg/kg; in water, fish, grasses and lechwe, respectively. Manganese ranges were 0.15-0.16 mg/l; 7.0-18.0 mg/kg; 51.0-145.0 mg/kg; and 40.0-53.0 mg/kg while iron ranges were 0.13-0.14 mg/l; 26.0-134.0 mg/kg; 1766.0-1797.0 mg/kg; and 131.0-856.0 mg/kg; in water, fish, grasses and lechwe, respectively. Levels in all samples except water were high indicating potential for adverse effects.  (+info)

Use of computer-assisted sperm motility assessment and multivariate pattern analysis to characterize ejaculate quality in Mohor gazelles (Gazella dama mhorr): effects of body weight, electroejaculation technique and short-term semen storage. (5/119)

Subjective and objective semen assessments were performed on 18 male Mohor gazelles (Gazella dama mhorr). Sperm motility assessments combined with sperm plasma membrane and acrosomal integrity evaluations were undertaken as part of a captive breeding programme. The primary objective was to test methodology for short-term preservation of gazelle semen for artificial insemination (storage in N-[Tris(hydroxymethyl)methyl]-2-aminoethanesulphonic acid-Tris diluent (TEST) for up to 96 h at 17 degrees C). However, the secondary objective was to investigate phenotypic and genotypic influences on semen quality within this small population, which was established in 1971 with only 12 genetic founders. Sperm motility was measured by computer-assisted semen assessment and the data were analysed using a pattern analysis technique to detect and quantify naturally occurring sperm subpopulations within the semen samples. Four sperm subpopulations distinguishable by their motion characteristics were detected. The relative frequencies of two subpopulations (population 2: highly motile, non-linear; and population 4: poorly motile, non-linear) in fresh semen were correlated with the maximum voltage used during electroejaculation. The frequency of subpopulation 2 was negatively correlated with maximum voltage (r = -0.875, P < 0.0001) and the frequency of subpopulation 4 was positively correlated (r = 0.727, P < 0.005). The frequencies of all subpopulations varied significantly among the animals sampled (chi-squared = 2577.6, degrees of freedom = 54, P < 0.0001) and subpopulation 4 was also correlated with body weight (r = -0.59, P < 0.005). Semen stored at 17 degrees C retained motility, plasma membrane and acrosomal integrity for 48 h, but these measures decreased thereafter. The frequency of a sperm subpopulation showing uncoordinated but active motility increased significantly over the first 48 h and then decreased.  (+info)

Seasonal variation in energy expenditure, water flux and food consumption of Arabian oryx Oryx leucoryx. (6/119)

We report on the energy expenditure and water flux, measured in the laboratory and in the field, of the Arabian oryx Oryx leucoryx, the largest desert ruminant for which measurements of the field metabolic rate of free-living individuals have been made using doubly labeled water. Prior to extirpation of this species in the wild in 1972, conservationists sequestered a number of individuals for captive breeding; in 1989, oryx were reintroduced in Saudi Arabia into Mahazat as-Sayd (2244 km(2)). Apart from small pools of water available after rains, oryx do not have free-standing water available for drinking and therefore rely on grasses that they eat for preformed water intake as well as their energy needs. We tested whether oryx have a reduced fasting metabolic rate and total evaporative water loss (TEWL) in the laboratory, as do some other arid-adapted mammals, and whether oryx have high field metabolic rates (FMRs) and water influx rates (WIRs), as predicted by allometric equations for large arid-zone mammals. We measured FMR and WIR during the hot summer, when plant moisture content was low and ambient temperatures were high, and after winter rains, when the water content of grasses was high. For captive oryx that weighed 84.1 kg, fasting metabolic rate averaged 8980 kJ day(-1), 16.7% lower than predictions for Artiodactyla. Our own re-analysis of minimal metabolic rates among Artiodactyla yielded the equation: logV(O2)=-0.153+0.758logM, where V(O2) is the rate of oxygen uptake in lh(-1) and M is body mass in kg. Fasting metabolic rate of oryx was only 9.1% lower than predicted, suggesting that they do not have an unusually low metabolic rate. TEWL averaged 870.0 ml day(-1), 63.9% lower than predicted, a remarkably low value even compared with the camel, but the mechanisms that contribute to such low rates of water loss remain unresolved. For free-living oryx, FMR was 11076 kJ day(-1) for animals with a mean body mass of 81.5 kg during summer, whereas it was 22081 kJ day(-1) for oryx in spring with a mean body mass of 89.0 kg, values that were 48.6% and 90.4% of allometric predictions, respectively. During summer, WIR averaged 1310 ml H(2)O day(-1), whereas in spring it was 3438 ml H(2)O day(-1). Compared with allometric predictions, WIR was 76.9% lower than expected in summer and 43.6% lower in spring. We found no evidence to support the view that the WIR of large desert ungulates is higher than that of their mesic counterparts. On the basis of the WIR of the oryx averaged over the year and the water contents of plants in their diet, we estimated that an oryx consumes 858 kg of dry matter per year.  (+info)

Species-specific sperm-egg interaction affects the utility of a heterologous bovine in vitro fertilization system for evaluating antelope sperm. (7/119)

The purpose of this study was to evaluate cryopreserved fringe-eared (FE) oryx (Oryx gazella callotis) sperm function using a heterologous in vitro fertilization (IVF) system previously developed to study scimitar-horned (SH) oryx (Oryx dammah) spermatozoa. Semen was collected by electroejaculation from FE oryx (n = 2) and SH oryx (n = 2), evaluated immediately postcollection, and cryopreserved. Thawed spermatozoa were evaluated for motility, forward progression, and acrosomal status immediately post-thaw, after Percoll-separation, and 1, 2, 3, and 8 h after culture in IVF medium. In vitro-matured cow oocytes (n = 924) were inseminated with either domestic bull, FE, or SH oryx spermatozoa and after an 8-h coincubation period, half the oocytes were fixed and examined for sperm penetration, polyspermy, and male pronuclear formation. The remaining oocytes were placed into in vitro culture and evaluated for cleavage after 48 h. Overall, there were no between-species differences in sperm motility and acrosome integrity. However, an effect of time (P < 0.05) and a species-by-time interaction (P < 0.05) were detected for both parameters. Penetration, male pronuclear formation, and embryo cleavage were high (>90%, >85%, and >70%, respectively) for oocytes inseminated with domestic bull and SH oryx spermatozoa and did not differ (P > 0.05) between species. In contrast, very few oocytes (2.8%, 4 of 141) inseminated with FE oryx sperm were penetrated. Cleavage was rare (8.0%, 16 of 200) in oocytes inseminated with FE oryx spermatozoa and did not differ (P > 0.05) from that in parthenogenetic controls (4.2%, 3 of 72). Furthermore, FE oryx spermatozoa were incapable of penetrating zona-free cow oocytes. These results indicate that species-specific differences in gamete interaction may exist even between very closely related nondomestic bovids.  (+info)

Hormonal characterization of the reproductive cycle and pregnancy in the female Mohor gazelle (Gazella dama mhorr). (8/119)

The oestrous cycles of seven captive Mohor Gazelles (Gazella dama mhorr) were investigated. Hormone profiles obtained from faecal samples collected each day from cyclic females indicated that the mean duration of the oestrous cycle was 18.62 +/- 0.26 days (range 16-22 days; n = 37 oestrous cycles). No inter-individual differences in the concentration of faecal progestagen metabolites excreted were observed, but mean faecal oestrogen excretion during both the luteal and inter-luteal phases of the oestrous cycle varied among females (P < 0.001 and P = 0.070, respectively). Oestrous cycles were synchronized using controlled internal drug release (CIDR) devices, before natural mating with an intact male. Concentrations of faecal progestagen metabolites remained approximately constant for the first 10 weeks of gestation (mean +/- SEM = 4048 +/- 407 ng g(-1) faeces), before increasing to a mean of 23 556 +/- 1176 ng g(-1) faeces. Two of seven female gazelles conceived immediately after removal of the CIDR device, a similar proportion to that conceived at the postpartum oestrus under natural conditions. Life history data for these individuals indicated that the mean time to conception in female gazelles is positively correlated with peak values in the ratio of excreted oestrogen : progestagen during the inter-luteal period of their oestrous cycles (R(2) = 0.58; P < 0.05). This finding indicates that interactions between steroid production and metabolism may influence the likelihood of conception occurring in this species.  (+info)

An antelope is a member of a number of even-toed ungulate species indigenous to various regions in Africa and Eurasia. Antelopes comprise a wastebasket taxon (miscellaneous group) within the family Bovidae, encompassing those Old World species that are not cattle, sheep, buffalo, bison, or goats; even so, antelope are generally more deer-like than other bovids. A group of antelope is called a herd. The English word antelope first appeared in 1417 and is derived from the Old French antelop, itself derived from Medieval Latin ant(h)alopus, which in turn comes from the Byzantine Greek word anthólops, first attested in Eustathius of Antioch (circa 336), according to whom it was a fabulous animal haunting the banks of the Euphrates, very savage, hard to catch and having long, saw-like horns capable of cutting down trees. It perhaps derives from Greek anthos (flower) and ops (eye), perhaps meaning beautiful eye or alluding to the animals long eyelashes. This, however, may be a later folk ...

The range of this species is restricted to the central and western San Joaquin Valley and neighbouring areas to the west in the inner Coast Ranges of California in the United States (e.g., Cuyama Valley, Panoche Valley, Carrizo Plain, Elkhorn Plain) (Best et al. 1990). Its elevational range extends from about 50 m asl on the floor of the San Joaquin Valley to around 1,100 m asl in the Temblor Range, but antelope squirrels are not common above about 800 m asl on the ridges and plains west of the San Joaquin Valley proper (Williams 1980; D.F. Williams, unpubl. data). Populations now exist primarily in marginal habitats of low foothills and mountains on the western edge of the San Joaquin Valley; significant populations occur only in western Kern County at Elk Hills and on portions of the Carrizo and Elkhorn plains.

Tibetan antelope are listed as endangered by the World Conservation Union and the United States Fish and Wildlife Service due to commercial poaching for their underwool, competition with local domesticated herds, and the development of their rangeland for gold mining. The chirus wool, known as shahtoosh, is warm, soft and fine. Although the wool can be obtained without killing the animal, poachers simply kill the chiru before taking the wool; their numbers have dropped accordingly from nearly a million (estimated) at the turn of the 20th century to less than 75,000 today. The numbers continue to drop yearly. The struggle to stop illegal antelope hunting was portrayed in the 2004 film, Kekexili: Mountain Patrol.. To develop testing for shahtoosh, a Hong Kong chemist and a senior forensic specialist looked at the material though a microscope. Using this method, they discovered shahtoosh contains coarser guard hairs unique to the species. By doing this, the duo had found a convenient way to prove ...
Theileria species (sable) causes significant mortalities in roan (Hippotragus equinus), and to a lesser extent, sable antelope (Hippotragus niger) yearly. Treatment of the condition and an infect and treat vaccination method using a tick-derived stabilate both rely on the availability of buparvaquone, a naphthoquinone with anti-theilerial activity. As buparvaquone is a controlled drug which is not commercially available in South Africa, a viable commercial alternative prevention or treatment method is necessary to control this disease. This study explores the effectiveness of an alternative vaccination method using Theileria sp. (sable) infected in vitro cultured leukoblasts. A Theileria sp. (sable) containing cell line was initiated from lymph node biopsy material of an infected roan antelope and the parasite was successfully propagated in vitro. Attenuation is believed to have been achieved by 16 cycles of passage. Real time PCR suggests that the parasite was successfully transmitted via ...

ALTHOUGH the physiology of the camel, kangaroo-rat, jerboa and various domestic animals of desert regions has been examined in some detail1,2, nothing is known of the heat and water relations of that most typical desert mammal, the gazelle. It has occasionally been suggested that gazelles may be able to live indefinitely on dry food without water, like desert rodents, but no experiments have been made to determine if this is true or whether, like camels, they need to drink. For this reason an investigation of the water economy of the Dorcas gazelle, Gazella dorcas dorcas (L.) is now being pursued here.
Conservation Status: Least concern. Gestation period is approximately 240 days. The short, smooth coat varies in general colour from tan-grey to bluish-grey in colour. There are 6-10 vertical stripes along the sides, a chevron between the eyes, and cheek spots. On the neck and shoulders is an crest and underneath a mane extends along the throat. The ears of the greater kudu are large and round. The spiralled horns are found only in males and have up to 3 full turns. They can grow 100-140 cm / 40-56 inches long. When running through the bush the head is raised and the horns are laid onto the back.. The large ears are extremely sensitive to noise, making these shy antelope difficult to approach. Under normal circumstance, kudu will sneak away and hide from potential enemies. When startled they flee with large jumps with their tails rolled upwards and forwards. Kudu often stop and look back after a running for a short distance - a frequently fatal habit. Despite their large size, kudu are ...

When the Columbia River Railroad completed its line from Biggs on the river to Shaniko 70 miles South on September 9th, 1900 the fate of Antelope was sealed. The entire purpose of this line was to bring sheep and wool from Shaniko to barges and larger railways along the Columbia. Daily stagecoach runs from Shaniko to Antelope became the norm and the town was officially incorporated by the Oregon legislature January 29th, 1901. There was much rejoicing, but the railroad in and out of Shaniko slowly sucked the population away.. By the 1920s and 1930s Antelope began to fade into further irrelevance as the automobile began to replace the trains and stagecoach runs. The waystation origin of Antelope was no longer needed and the town quickly lost its luster.. Fast forward about 50 years and things started to get really, really interesting.

A disease has killed 2,500 critically endangered Saiga antelope in Western Mongolia since the beginning of the year, scientists say.
Pronghorn hair is very brittle and is shed throughout the year. During extreme weather conditions, the hollow hair provides excellent insulation. Pronghorn hair is also used as an alarm signal. By erecting the white rump hair, a pronghorn alerts the herd of possible danger.. Habitat: Open grass and forest parks.. Food Preferences:. Grasses, weeds, cacti, juniper, winterfat, and chamiso. Pronghorn are selective, opportunistic foragers. They feed on forbs, shrubs, grasses, and sometimes cacti and domestic crops. Forbs make up the largest part of their diet, followed by shrubs, then grasses. Forbs are typically eaten from spring to late fall and are critical to good fawn production. Shrubs are eaten all year, but are most important in winter when forbs are not readily available. Grasses, though relatively unimportant, are eaten when young and succulent. Other food types vary locally in importance. Recently disturbed ground, such as burned areas, are often good foraging sites because they can ...
When geoecologist Steffen Zuther and his colleagues arrived in central Kazakhstan to monitor the calving of one herd of saigas, a critically endangered, steppe-dwelling antelope, veterinarians in the area had already reported dead animals on the ground. But since there happened to be die-offs of limited extent during the last years, at first we were not really alarmed, Zuther, the international coordinator of the Altyn Dala Conservation Initiative, told Live Science. But within four days, the entire herd - 60,000 saiga - had died.

Retinal photography aids in early diagnosis and tracking of retinal and systemic diseases. Retinal photography is recommended for people with diseases such as diabetes, hypertension or a family history of glaucoma. These diseases can affect the retina before they affect your vision, so it is imperative to look for early signs or changes in the eye. At the Antelope Mall Vision Center we use the Canon CR-1 Mark II Digital Retinal Camera. This is a state-of-the-art digital eye imaging technology with dramatically reduced flash brightness, improved overall comfort and a brief exam time.. ...
Period: May 2011 - May 2012 Status: COMPLETE Researchers: EJ. Milner-Gulland Rationale The drastic decline of the global saiga antelope (Saiga tatarica) population since the mid 1990s was a result predominantly of poaching and the illegal trade in saiga horns and meat. The horns, which are only borne by the males, are the most lucrative target for poachers and are traded to East and South-east Asia, particularly China, where they are used in traditional medicine. The Ustyurt plateau, straddling Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, harbours one of the five main populations of saiga antelopes, is the only one with a significant trans-boundary component and the only population currently observed to be suffering an ongoing decline, due to poaching on both sides of the border. Hence, conservation of this relatively remote and neglected population is of primary importance for saiga conservation range-wide. Best estimates suggest that the Ustyurt supported 17,800 saigas in 2006 declining to 10,000 individuals

Introduction. Cattle and the larger wildlife species are the preferred hosts of the adults of a multitude of ixodid tick species in South Africa. Some of these ticks are important vectors of disease or toxins affecting domestic livestock as well as some naive wildlife species. The purchase and sale of wildlife is a flourishing industry in South Africa, and despite their high prices, it is particularly the larger species that are sought after. Amongst these are white and black rhinoceroses (Ceratotherium simum and Diceros bicornis), African buffaloes (Syncerus caffer), roan antelopes (Hippotragus equinus), sable antelopes (Hippotragus niger), and elands (Tragelaphus oryx). Moreover, there is also brisk trade in smaller species.. Although all animals should be tick-free or at least treated with an acaricide before transportation, this is not always an adequate precaution. Hence, with their hosts, ticks may be translocated to regions where neither they nor their hosts are endemic. In addition to ...

[more ▼]. Objective: Following reintroduction and conservation programs of the Arabian oryx (Oryx leucoryx) and the scimitar horned oryx (SHO, Oryx dammah) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), import of animals from wild game ranches in the United States of America (USA) is not uncommon. Bluetongue virus (BTV) and epizootic hemorrhagic disease virus (EHDV) are orbiviruses that are the causative agents of bluetongue disease (BT) and epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD), respectively.

br /,because of poaching and diseases brought by illegal cattle transhumance. Elephant (Loxodonta africana) and Buffon kob (Kobus kob) populations showed the greatest decline (over 80% each), while buffalo (Syncerus caffer), roan antelope (Hippotragus equinus) and Giant Lords Derby Eland (Taurotragus derbianus) populations seem stable or increasing over these last 20 years. The analysis of the wildlife population distribution by status of the different types of protected areas (national parks, hunting areas) showed that individual encounter rates of elephant and buffalo were lower in national parks than in neighbouring hunting areas, while those for roan, giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) and Buffon kob were higher in the national parks ...
ATTN: Nathan Bieber, Maine Deer Spy Maine Dept. 200 pound-plus bucks with heavy beams and long tines are truely awesome animals. Movement by deer from summer to winter range can vary from less than a mile to more than 25 miles depending on availability and suitability of the winter range.

We found the dogs just before sunset. They had just chased a sub-adult kudu right into the water; panic stricken, the kudu must have felt it was the only route to escape. Some of the other dog pack members were also trying their luck on some red lechwe, but gave up the chase and came back to wait and see what the kudus next move would be - the antelope now mired motionless in the middle of the floodplain. One of the dogs then got into the water to try and force the kudus next move. In response, the kudu splashed, noisily jumping deeper into the water. Suddenly, the dog swam back to the safety of the bank. The dogs reasoning would become very apparent shortly.
FAMILY BOVIDAE This hugely successful family includes a total of 120 extant species of bovid, in 6 sub-families and 4 genera. This family includes the musk-ox, bison, antelopes, duikers and several species important to man - cattle, sheep, the yak and goats. Bovids are found throughout Eurasia, Africa and North America. Africa is probably their stronghold.. There is more variation in form within the family than between the bovids and other ruminants. They range in size from the tiny duikers to the huge cape buffalo. Horns (non-decidious keratin on bony roots) are usually borne by both sexes.. Many bovids live in herds, probably for defence. This can be very successful - cape buffalo (below) herds in Africa have been seen to contain blind and even three-legged members. ...
This zebra is named for Jules Grevy, a French president who received one from the king of Ethiopia as a gift in the 1880s. It is the largest of the wild equids. It is set apart from horses and asses, its two closest relatives, by its stripes and untamable wild nature.. Grevys zebras are often seen on the open plains with other grazing animals, such as wildebeest, ostrich and antelopes. They can sprint 40 mph.. Grevys zebras have long, narrow heads with large, round ears to give them a mule-like appearance. Their ears can be rotated to determine the location of sound. Grevys zebras have good eyesight with binocular vision in the front and can probably see in color.. Their sense of taste is also keen and can detect slight changes in the quality of their food. They spend about 60 percent of the day grazing and up to 80 percent when food becomes scarce.. The zebra stallions live alone within large territories of up to four square miles, in which they claim exclusive mating rights. They mark their ...
Chafers were not the only scarabs I encountered in abundance at Borakalalo [National Park], and Ill give you one guess as to what other scarab group I encountered in abundance at this mammal game reserve. Thats right, dung beetles. Never before have I seen such an abundance and diversity of dung beetles in one spot, but then again, never before have I seen such an abundance of dung! The ground was littered with the stuff - antelope such as gemsbok and impala, warthogs, giraffes, and a host of other mammals thrive in the protected confines of the park, and the seasonally dry climate allows their dung to dry quickly and accumulate rather than breaking down and disappearing. It did, however, take a few days before I became aware of the areas dung beetle diversity. Prior to our arrival in the park, the weather had been dry for some time, and so it remained for the first few days we were there. I collected a smattering of different dung beetles during that time, but it seemed like they should be ...

Domestic cattle appear to be the most common hosts of this tick. They are mentioned by practically every author and are the most frequent hosts of specimens in museum collections. Other common domestic hosts are horses, sheep, and goats. Bedford (1932B) states that dogs and cats are also infested; specimens from these hosts are present in British Museum (Natural History) and HH collections. In semidesert areas, camels are frequently parasitized (Sudan records; HH mss.; numerous Somaliland specimens in BMNH collections; Hoogstraal 1953D). Among wild animals, the buffalo and giraffe are common hosts, as is the rhinoceros. Antelopes and certain birds are less common hosts. ...

Alec Ndiwane thought he was filled with the Holy Spirit when he decided to challenge lions at the Kruger National Park.. The Zion Christian Church Prophet was at the park with his fellow church members when, according to GhanaWeb, he went into a trance and began speaking in tongues. The group approached the pride of lions while they munched happily on an antelope, but thats when Ndiwane ran toward the lions.. Out To Africa lists humans as the major predator to lions, so its no surprise that the lions took on the challenge. Once he realized what was happening, Ndiwane made an about-face and immediately ran away. Unfortunately, lions are fast and fierce animals and when one of the lions snapped her paws on him, Ndiwane sustained injuries to his buttocks.. The ranger fired his gun into the air to scare the lions off and rushed the prophet to the hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery to ensure he didnt lose most of his buttocks.. I do not know what came over me, Ndiwane confessed. I ...
Angola is a giant jigsaw puzzle of different climates, landscapes, cultures and colors. From mountains to vast open plains, wide white beaches to thick tropical rain forest, Angola has it all, as if each of its eighteen provinces were a different country. Lubango has a mild temperate climate, Luanda is hot and dry, while Cabinda is steamy and tropical. Much of the landscape is dramatic, with plunging waterfalls, bizarre rock formations and deep gorges. With an Atlantic coastline stretching for over 1.650 kms, Angola has mighty rivers flowing into wide estuaries depositing sediments from the high plateaus to form numerous small islands, bays and sandbanks.. In Angola, you can encounter a diversity of wild animals: lions, hyenas, elephants and antelopes. Apes, hippopotamuses and crocodiles are also indigenous to this country. In the Namib Desert, which is situated in the south-west, you can find the tumboa, a unique plant with two wide leaves that are several metres long and lie on the ground of ...

Although often regarded as a quieter time of the year for game viewing, the green season at Mombo would prove any sceptic wrong. Most of the antelope species have young at this time of the year, and watching these miniature creatures can provide hours of entertainment. The general game at Mombo will never disappoint and on game drives you are rarely out of sight of an animal of some sort. The floodwaters at this time are still a way off and so the small amounts of water on the floodplains are part rain water and part floodwater still from 2008. Game numbers on the floodplains are still good at the moment. What happens at this time of year is that the rain has filled up the pans in the interior of the island, providing a semi-permanent water source. This, in combination with the abundance of sweet, rain-fed grasses, attracts large numbers of general game into the acacia woodlands of Chiefs Island. On the lion front, things are starting to get interesting. Keeping up with pride dynamics is becoming

Preventing hairballs-or their aftermath-helps keep cats healthy (and floors clean).. This April 25 marks the ninth year cat lovers will celebrate National Hairball Awareness Day. It is interesting to note that felines arent the only hairball expellers; rabbits do, too. So do cud-chewing animals such as cows, oxen, sheep, goats, llamas, deer and antelopes. And-wait for it-people, too! A human hairball is called a trichobezoar. Its common in people who compulsively play with their hair and swallow it.. Now, this is not a day you want to celebrate by being greeted by a big hairball presented by your cat. A celebration would be NOT waking up to a hairball on the rug.. Most cats are able to expel hairballs by vomiting them up. But often that is the tip of the iceberg of hair-so to speak. Ingested hair can cause a serious blockage in the intestinal tract and lead to all sorts of complications.. Its so important to remember that while cats are self-groomers, they still need help from their pet ...
After the initial first flush, what transpired was five days of breathtaking views, as we traveled across the gray sea like small ships with tiny orange sails affixed to our backs. We walked miles and miles, sharing the landscape with prancing herds of antelope and wild horses, the aroma of sage wafting across our paths. With each inhale, the warm menthol sensation brought a cooling feeling as it traveled down our nasal cavities. All around us, as far as we could see, we hunted among the main food source of the sage grouse. My thoughts were of the landscape and how vital the preservation of habitat was to the continued existence of the sage grouse. I was grateful for the chance to be hunting such a bird. If it were not for the partnerships between ranchers, hunters, and conservationists, our group would not have been able to experience a once-in-a-lifetime pursuit of an upland bird that may or may not have a future in the dreams of upland bird hunters.. ...

In a cooperative agreement starting January 1995, prior to the FDAs licensure of the varicella vaccine on March 17, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funded the Los Angeles Department of Health Services Antelope Valley Varicella Active Surveillance Project (AV-VASP). Since only varicella case reports were gathered, baseline incidence data for herpes zoster (HZ) or shingles was lacking. Varicella case reports decreased 72%, from 2834 in 1995 to 836 in 2000 at which time approximately 50% of children under 10years of age had been vaccinated. Starting in 2000, HZ surveillance was added to the project. By 2002, notable increases in HZ incidence rates were reported among both children and adults with a prior history of natural varicella. However, CDC authorities still claimed that no increase in HZ had occurred in any US surveillance site. The basic assumptions inherent to the varicella cost-benefit analysis ignored the significance of exogenous boosting caused by those shedding ...

Preface Last Updated: 4/28/2004 8:52 PM How and when the Palauan Islands were first settled is uncertain. Perhaps about 10,000 years ago, people moved into the Micronesian islands from what is now Indonesia and the Philippines. The first permanent settlements, however, may not have been before 500 A.D. The first extended contact with Western civilization occurred in 1783 when the British vessel Antelope shipwrecked near Koror. Outside important trade routes, Palau was generally left alone until Spain formalized claims to Palau in 1885. In 1899 Germany purchased most of Spains Micronesian island chains in the aftermath of the Spanish-American War. Germany lost possession to Japan in 1914. The League of Nations formally extended Japans mandate in 1920. During World War II, on September 15, 1944, U.S. forces landed on the Palauan islands of Peleliu and Angaur where they fought one of the memorable battles of the Pacific war.

Heude (1898) described a least 24 supposedly different serow taxa. Later authors have united some and added others. Even today, authors differ strongly on nomenlature and specific/subspecific status of the various types. Not surprisingly, physical descriptions and distributon range maps differ and assessments of serow conservation stats vary, wht little in the way of conclusive scientific evidence. [1]. Schaller (1977) listet one serow species, Capricornis sumatraensis, with 11 subspecies. Other authors recognized two serow species, Capricornis crispus with two subspecies and Capricornis sumatraensis with five subspecies. Differentiation was mainly based on body size, pelage, and mane presence, colour and length. [1]. The Caprinae Action Plan (1997) lists three serow species: C. sumatraensis with five subspecies (C. s. milneedwardsii, C. s. maritimus, C. s. sumatraensis, C. s. rubidus, C. s. thar) and the two island species C. crispus and C. swinhoe.

Objective: The study evaluated the efficacy of phototherapy and 20% albumin infusion to reduce total serum bilirubin (TSB) in neonates with severe hyperbilirubinemia. The primary outcome was a reduction of TSB at the end of treatment. The secondary outcomes were the need for exchange transfusion, inpatient mortality, neurological outcomes at discharge, and development outcomes at 12-months follow-up. Results: One hundred and eighteen neonates were randomly assigned to phototherapy and 20% albumin (n = 59) and phototherapy and saline (n = 69). The median age at admission was 5 (interquartile range (IQR) 3-6) days, and the median gestation was 36 (IQR 36-38) weeks. No significant differences were found in the change in TSB (Mann-Whitney U =609, p = 0.98) and rate of change in TSB per hour after treatment (Mann-Whitney U = 540, p = 0.39) between the two groups. There were no significant differences between the two groups in the proportion of participants who required exchange transfusion (χ2 (2) = 0.36, p
Interspecies somatic cell nuclear transfer (iSCNT) has been regarded as a potential alternative for rescuing highly endangered species and can be used as a model for studying nuclear-cytoplasmic interactions. However, iSCNT embryos often fail to produce viable offspring. The alterations in normal molecular mechanisms contributing to extremely poor development are for the most part unknown. Przewalskis gazelle-bovine iSCNT embryos (PBNT) were produced by transferring Przewalskis gazelle fibroblast nuclei into enucleated bovine oocytes. The percentages of PBNT embryos that developed to morula/blastocyst stages were extremely low even with the use of various treatments that included different SCNT protocols and treatment of embryos with small molecules. Transcriptional microarray analyses of the cloned embryos showed that the upregulation of reprogramming-associated genes in bovine-bovine SCNT (BBNT) embryos was significantly higher than those observed in PBNT embryos (1527:643). In all, 139 transcripts
