Functional morphology of the first cervical vertebra in humans and nonhuman primates. (1/34)

The cervical vertebral column bears or balances the weight of the head supported by the nuchal muscles that partly originate from the cervical vertebrae. The position of the head relative to the vertebral column, and consequently locomotion and posture behavior, could thus be associated with the form of the cervical vertebrae. In spite of this assumption and some empirical indications along these lines, primate vertebral morphologies have been reported to be very similar and not clearly related to locomotion. We therefore study the relationship between the morphology of the first cervical vertebra, the atlas, and the locomotion pattern within primates using a geometric morphometric approach. Our analysis is based on a total of 116 vertebrae of adult Homo sapiens, Gorilla gorilla, Pan troglodytes, Pongo pygmaeus, Hylobates lar, Macaca mulatta, Papio hamadryas, Ateles geoffroyi, and Alouatta palliata. On each atlas, 56 landmarks were digitized and superimposed by Procrustes registration. The resulting shape variables were analyzed by principal component analysis, multivariate regression, and partial least-squares analysis. We found that the nine primate species differ clearly in their atlas morphology and that allometric shape change is distinct between the nonhuman primates and Homo sapiens. We could further identify morphological features that relate to the species' locomotion pattern. Human atlas shape, however, cannot be predicted by an extrapolation of the nonhuman primate model. This implies that either the primate atlas is generalized enough to allow bipedal locomotion or else the human atlas morphology is a unique adaptation different from that in the more orthograde nonhuman primates.  (+info)

Aggression and conflict management at fusion in spider monkeys. (2/34)

In social systems characterized by a high degree of fission-fusion dynamics, members of a large community are rarely all together, spending most of their time in smaller subgroups with flexible membership. Although fissioning into smaller subgroups is believed to reduce conflict among community members, fusions may create conflict among individuals from joining subgroups. Here, we present evidence for aggressive escalation at fusion and its mitigation by the use of embraces in wild spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi). Our findings provide the first systematic evidence for conflict management at fusion and may have implications for the function of human greetings.  (+info)

Rapid evolution of an X-linked microRNA cluster in primates. (3/34)

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a growing class of small RNAs (about 22 nt) that play crucial regulatory roles in the genome by targeting mRNAs for cleavage or translational repression. Most of the identified miRNAs are highly conserved among species, indicating strong functional constraint on miRNA evolution. However, nonconserved miRNAs may contribute to functional novelties during evolution. Recently, an X-linked miRNA cluster was reported with multiple copies in primates but not in rodents or dog. Here we sequenced and compared this miRNA cluster in major primate lineages including human, great ape, lesser ape, Old World monkey, and New World monkey. Our data indicate rapid evolution of this cluster in primates including frequent tandem duplications and nucleotide substitutions. In addition, lineage-specific substitutions were observed in human and chimpanzee, leading to the emergence of potential novel mature miRNAs. The expression analysis in rhesus monkeys revealed a strong correlation between miRNA expression changes and male sexual maturation, suggesting regulatory roles of this miRNA cluster in testis development and spermatogenesis. We propose that, like protein-coding genes, miRNA genes involved in male reproduction are subject to rapid adaptive changes that may contribute to functional novelties during evolution.  (+info)

Nonhuman anthropoid primate femoral neck trabecular architecture and its relationship to locomotor mode. (4/34)

Functional analyses of human and nonhuman anthropoid primate femoral neck structure have largely ignored the trabecular bone. We tested hypotheses regarding differences in the relative distribution and structural anisotropy of trabecular bone in the femoral neck of quadrupedal and climbing/suspensory anthropoids. We used high-resolution X-ray computed tomography to analyze quantitatively the femoral neck trabecular structure of Ateles geoffroyi, Symphalangus syndactylus, Alouatta seniculus, Colobus guereza, Macaca fascicularis, and Papio cynocephalus (n = 46). We analyzed a size-scaled superior and inferior volume of interest (VOI) in the femoral neck. The ratio of the superior to inferior VOI bone volume fraction indicated that the distribution of trabecular bone was inferiorly skewed in most (but not all) quadrupeds and evenly distributed the climbing/suspensory species, but interspecific comparisons indicated that all taxa overlapped in these measurements. Degree of anisotropy values were generally higher in the inferior VOI of all species and the results for the two climbing/suspensory taxa, A. geoffroyi (1.71 +/- 0.30) and S. syndactylus (1.55 +/- 0.04), were similar to the results for the quadrupedal anthropoids, C. guereza (male = 1.64 +/- 0.13; female = 1.68 +/- 0.07) and P. cynocephalus (1.47 +/- 0.13). These results suggest strong trabecular architecture similarity across body sizes, anthropoid phylogenetic backgrounds, and locomotor mode. This structural similarity might be explained by greater similarity in anthropoid hip joint loading mechanics than previously considered. It is likely that our current models of anthropoid hip joint mechanics are overly simplistic.  (+info)

Neuroendocrine tumor in the lung of a captive black spider monkey (Ateles paniscus). (5/34)

This paper describes a neuroendocrine (NE) tumor of the lung that was observed during the necropsy of a 14-year-old female black spider monkey (Ateles paniscus) with sudden death. Grossly, multifocal firm and coalescing nodular masses were observed in the lung. The histological examination showed the tumor to be an typical NE tumor with polygonal cells grouped in small solid aggregates, with regularly sized, spherical, centrally placed nuclei with modest, lightly granular cytoplasm suspended in a fibrovascular stroma. The immunohistochemical examination revealed the tumor to be positive for cytokeratin, chromogranin A and synaptophysin, and negative for CD56. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of NE tumor in the lung of the black spider monkey.  (+info)

The complete nucleotide sequence of a New World simian foamy virus. (6/34)

We determined the complete nucleotide sequence of the New World simian foamy virus (FV) from spider monkey (SFVspm). Starting from a conserved region in the integrase (IN) domain of the pol gene we cloned fragments of the genome up to the 5' end of the long terminal repeat (LTR) into plasmid vectors and elucidated their nucleotide sequence. The 3' end of the genome was determined by direct nucleotide sequencing of PCR products. Each nucleotide of the genome was determined at least two times from both strands. All protein motifs described to be conserved among primate FVs were found in SFVspm. At both the nucleotide and protein levels SFVspm is the most divergent primate FV described to date, reflecting the long-term phylogenetic separation between Old World and New World primate host species (Catarrhini and Platyrrhini, respectively). The molecular probes developed for SFVspm will allow the investigation of trans-species transmissions of this New World foamy virus to humans by serological assays.  (+info)

... s are New World monkeys of the family Atelidae, subfamily Atelinae. Found in tropical forests from southern Mexico to Brazil, spider monkeys belong to the genus Ateles; the closely related woolly spider monkeys are in the genus Brachyteles.. As they require large tracts of undisturbed forest and specialize on ripe fruits, spider monkeys may be considered an indicator species. The monkeys are threatened by habitat destruction through continued growth in South American agriculture. Disproportionately long, spindly limbs inspired the spider monkeys common name. Their deftly prehensile tails have highly flexible hairless tips.. Spider monkeys have hook-like, narrow and thumbless hands; the fingers are elongate and recurved. The hair is coarse, ranging in color from a ruddy gold to brown and black; the hands and feet are usually black. Heads are small with hairless faces. An unusually long labia in females may be mistaken for a penis; it is used to attract the males. A female will ...
Black spider monkeys are habitat specialists and are almost always seen in undisturbed, primary rainforest and do not utilize edge habitats (Mittermeier & van Roosmalen 1981; Lehman 2004b). Like other species of spider monkeys, black spider monkeys occupy the upper layers of the rainforest and forage in the high canopy (from 25 to 30 m [82.0 to 98.4 ft]) consuming primarily fruits, but also occasionally consuming leaves, flowers, and insects (van Roosmalen & Klein 1988; Russo et al. 2005). As large-bodied frugivores, black spider monkeys are important seed dispersers within the rainforest ecosystem and play a crucial role in regenerating tropical forests (van Roosmalen 1985; Russo et al. 2005). Compared to other sympatric species of primates, black spider monkeys exhibit low diet diversity because of their high levels of fruit consumption (Guillotin et al. 1994). Despite their dependence on fruit as the mainstay of their diet, black spider monkeys supplement their fruit consumption during ...
Also known as the black-handed spider monkey, Geoffroys Spider Monkey originates from parts of Mexico and possibly Colombia. There are 5 subspecies of
Spider monkeys form loose groups of 15-25 individuals. During the day, spider monkey groups break up into smaller subgroups of two to eight individuals; this social structure (fission-fusion) is found in only one other primate, the chimpanzee. The size of subgroups and the degree to which they will avoid each other during the day is determined by food competition and the risk of predation. Each group is closely associated with its territory (Gordon 2007).. Also less common in primates, females-rather than males-disperse at puberty to join new groups. Males tend to stick together for their whole life. Hence, males in a group are more likely to be related and have closer bonds than females. The strongest social bonds are formed between females and young offspring. Groups are thought to be directed by a lead female, who is responsible for planning an efficient route for the days feeding activities.. Spider monkeys are diurnal and spend the night sleeping in carefully trees. Grooming is not as ...

The social organization of black spider monkeys is closely related to their ecological niche as large-bodied frugivores. In addition to ranging over large areas to find the amount of fruit necessary to meet their feeding requirements, black spider monkeys exhibit another behavior that helps them cope with seasonally restricted fruit. Like chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes), spider monkeys exhibit a fission-fusion social system; there is a large community of individuals that regularly associate with one another but individuals within the larger community spend much of their time traveling in smaller, temporary sub-groups led by dominant adult females (Mittermeier & van Roosmalen 1981; van Roosmalen 1985). Spider monkeys break up into small foraging groups that travel together and feed throughout the day within a core area of the larger groups home range (Simmen & Sabatier 1996). The subgroups or parties that are formed by individuals within the troop are temporary and can change in composition ...

Negra lived as a pet from a very young age with a family in Ascensión de Guarayos. She remained tied to a tree by a chain, surrounded by a group of pigs. The staff of Parque Ambue Ari used to see Negra every week when they went to buy fruits and vegetables for the animals at the sanctuary. They tried to explain to Negras captors that it is illegal to keep monkeys as pets and that they should release her to CIWYs care. The family refused, until one day Negra freed herself, entered the neighbors house and caused great damage. After this, the family allowed CIWY to take Negra.. Negra initially came to Ambue Ari, but was transferred to Machía so that she could integrate into the group of spider monkeys there. Spider monkeys are very social animals and fortunately Negra was immediately accepted by the group.. Despite being over 20 years old, Negra is a very active monkey. Everything arouses her curiosity and she enjoys exploring the area for new stimuli. Her intelligence never ceases to amaze ...

PSA is a 32 kDa single chain glycoprotein serine protease with a chymotrypsin like specificity produced by the secretory epithelium of the prostate gland (1). PSA is normally secreted into the seminal fluid and plays a functional role in the cleavage of the seminal vesicle proteins and the liquefaction of the seminal coagulum (2). Only low levels of PSA are normally present in the blood stream, and increasing serum concentrations indicate prostatic pathology, including benign prostatic hyperplasia and cancer of the prostate. Determination of PSA is now widely used for detection and management of patients with prostatic cancer and considered as the superior serological marker for cancer of the prostate (3, 8 ...

This family comprises the seahorses and true pipefishes. Their body is typically slender and elongate, and is encased in a series of bony rings. They may or may not have a prehensile tail. Their snouts are long and tube-like, and the toothless mouth is located at the tip. Most species feed on tiny benthic and planktonic organisms. Interestingly, the females deposit their eggs on the belly or base of the tails of the males, either in a pouch or a special surface full of blood vessels. The males will fertilise the eggs and carry them until they hatch. Many species are dried and sold in the curio trade, or used in traditional medicine in Asia ...

Summary 1. We received a juvenile squirrel-monkey, Leontocebus geoffroyi (Pucheran) with a naturally acquired spirochetosis on May 20, 1930. This animal had been in captivity for a short time in the region of Arraijan and La Chorrera, Republic of Panama. This region has long been known as an endemic center for relapsing fever. 2. We secured, in August, 1930, two monkeys of this same species that were positive for a scant or latent infection of apparently the same spirochete. These animals were captured in the jungle at a point on the banks of the Tuira river above Boca de Cupe, Dárien Province, Republic of Panama. Twenty other specimens captured on the same expedition failed to show the infection. All were post mortem examinations. 3. We have passed the spirochetal infection from the squirrel-monkeys to white mice, white rats, one guinea pig, white-faced monkeys (Cebus capucinus imitator Thomas), red spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi Kuhl), a night monkey (Aotus zonalis Goldman) and to numerous
Fecal glucocorticoid metabolites (e.g., cortisol) are a valuable non-invasive source of information on individual levels of physiological stress. However, using them to evaluate stress levels among females can be problematic in species that do not show overt signs of reproductive condition because concentrations of reproductive hormones can affect cortisol concentrations. For example, high concentrations of estradiol during pregnancy may promote an increase in glucocorticoids and associated binding factors. Here, we examine the efficacy of using fecal glucocorticoid metabolites as an indicator of stress and whether estradiol is a potential confound of such measurements in both wild (El Zota, Costa Rica) and captive (Brookfield Zoo, Illinois) black-handed spider monkeys (Ateles geoffroyi). First, fecal cortisol concentrations were measured from captive female spider monkeys before and after a veterinary exam. All females exhibited elevated cortisol concentrations after this stressful experience, ...
New World monkeys are primates and are more closely related to humans, apes and Old World monkeys than any other living nonhuman primate group. The Smithsonian Institutions Division of Mammals ( http://vertebrates.si.edu/mammals/ ) houses many New World monkeys in its scientific collections.
Brachiation (from "brachium", Latin for "arm"), or arm swinging, is a form of arboreal locomotion in which primates swing from tree limb to tree limb using only their arms. During brachiation, the body is alternately supported under each forelimb. This form of locomotion is the primary means of locomotion for the small gibbons and siamangs of southeast Asia. Some New World monkeys such as spider monkeys and muriquis are semibrachiators and move through the trees with a combination of leaping and brachiation. Some New World species also practice suspensory behaviors by using their prehensile tail, which acts as a fifth grasping hand. Some traits that allow primates to brachiate include a short spine (particularity the lumbar spine), short fingernails (instead of claws), long curved fingers, reduced thumbs, long forelimbs and freely rotating wrists. Modern humans retain many physical characteristics that suggest a brachiator ancestor, including flexible shoulder joints and fingers well-suited for ...

At the time, around 25 million years ago, the Panama land bridge that connected North and South American hadnt formed, and the Atlantic Ocean was narrower. Its possible that this ancient monkey rafted across from Africa. No matter how it got there, what happened next is clearer thanks to Perelmans study.. After they reached South America, the platyrrhines diverged into three major families. The first to branch off were the pithecids, including the titis, the bald-faced uakaris (top left), the bearded sakis. Next came the atelids with their long, prehensile tails, including the howler (bottom right), spider and woolly monkeys.. Finally, the cebids. This group includes several species that have previously been classified in separate families; Perelman has decided to united them in one. They diverged in quick succession - first, the capuchins and squirrel monkeys (bottom left), ...

Have you ever heard of a pack of wolves, meercats, spider monkeys, chimps, gorillas, howler monkeys, lions, elephants, etc. living in five hundred to thousand individual size groups or shall we say herds? All of them and a mass of other such small group animals live in groups in numbers per group that stays within a certain range. In most, there is an alpha male whom the group revolves around. There will be sub-alphas who support him but one of which will ultimately replace him. When the group gets behond its usual size, it begins to become difficult to keep together. There is more dissention. If the alpha is weak, females will leave with their offspring or another male becomes dominant. With some groups, its the head female that is dominant. A too large group encourages the sub-dominant male to split off with some of the females. Nothing can make the females, gays and children more uneasy and insecure than if the group is large enough that the dominant male has more females than he can control ...

Chameleons* are among the most distinctive and charismatic of lizards, and a long list of anatomical features makes them unusual relative to other members of the group. Most of the sorts of things I have in mind (those grasping hands and feet, the protrusible tongue and so on) are well known. Less familiar is that chameleons are not all branch-climbing specialists with prehensile tails: the group also includes a substantial number of terrestrial, leaf- and twig-mimicking taxa, many of which are tiny

Antitrombina (AT), uma proteína membro da família dos inibidores de serino proteases, é uma glicoproteína que co-existe em duas isoformas, a e b, que se diferenciam pelo conteúdo de glicosilação e pela afinidade por glicosaminoglicanos (GAG), um grupo de polissacarídeos polisulfatados, dentre as quais se destaca a heparina. AT é ativada quando ligada a GAGs, tornando-se assim capaz de inibir, com alta eficiência, proteases da cascata de coagulação como trombina e fXa. Essas enzimas formam complexos ternários com heparina e AT, sendo cada uma subsequentemente inibidas preferencialmente por um mecanismo de ação distinto: [1] baseado em mudanças conformacionais (fXa), ou pelo [2] mecanismo de ponte (trombina). Adicionalmente, já foi observado que heparina isoladamente pode modular a atividade catalítica de fIIa e fXa. Considerando a falta de dados estruturais a respeito dos efeitos da glicosilação sobre a estrutura e flexibilidade de AT, bem como sobre o reconhecimento ...
Experiments designed to ascertain the reason for the cessation of growth of heart fibroblasts when they are cultivated in a plasma coagulum with embryo juice as nutrient fluid have shown that it is due, first, to the gradual removal of serum from the coagulum, and second, to an insufficient supply of embryo juice. In a medium containing embryo extract at 66 per cent concentration and serum at 8 per cent concentration, growth continued until the entire coagulum in a 3½ cm. flask was covered with tissue. The serum is needed to furnish additional nutriment, and also to prevent digestion of the coagulum.. ...

The term atelectasis is derived from the Greek words ateles and ektasis, which mean incomplete expansion. Atelectasis is defined as diminished volume affecting all or part of a lung.
During the recent epidemic of acute anterior poliomyelitis in Panamá the author became interested in experimental studies of the etiologic agent. Three strains of poliomyelitis virus were isolated in rhesus monkeys (Rodaniche, in press). However, in view of the costliness of Macaca mulatta and the delay and difficulty experienced at times in obtaining specimens, it seemed advisable to attempt transmission of the virus to local monkeys. Since Melnick and Paul (1943) and Melnick (1946) had reported successful transmission to South American species of Cebus capucina, the corresponding Panamanian species was chosen for study. Later, experiments were also conducted with two of the four local subspecies of the howler monkey and with juvenile specimens of the black spider monkey. Mackay and Schroeder (1935) were unsuccessful in their attempts to transmit the virus to the South American spider monkey, Ateles ater, but we hoped that perhaps infant and juvenile specimens might prove more susceptible.

Human prostate-specific antigen (PSA or KLK3) is an important marker for the diagnosis and management of prostate cancer. This is an androgen-regulated glycoprotein of the kallikrein-related protease family secreted by prostatic epithelial cells. Its physiological function is to cleave semenogelins in the seminal coagulum and its enzymatic activity is strongly modulated by zinc ions ...
Human beings and the great apes (chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans) experience a true menstrual cycle. Old World Monkeys (baboons, macaques, etc.) are sometimes included as having a menstrual cycle depending on how terms are defined. However, most placental mammals-such as dogs, cats, elephants, and New World Monkeys (howler, capuchin, and spider monkeys, etc.)-experience estrus instead. One difference is that animals that have estrous cycles reabsorb the endometrium if conception does not occur during that cycle. Animals that have menstrual cycles shed the endometrium through menstruation instead. Another difference is sexual activity. In species with estrous cycles, females are generally only sexually active during the estrous phase of their cycle (near the time of ovulation). This is also referred to as being "in heat." In contrast, females of species with menstrual cycles can be sexually active at any time in their cycle, even when they are not about to ovulate. Humans, unlike some other ...

The olfactory sensitivity of five male CD-1 mice (Mus musculus) for six amino acids was determined using an operant conditioning paradigm. All animals significantly distinguished dilutions as low as 0.01 mM L-cysteine, 3.3 mM L-methionine, 10 mM L-proline, 0.03 mM D-cysteine, 0.3 mM D-methionine and 10 mM D-proline from the odorless solvent, with individual animals displaying even lower detection thresholds. Among the three different L-forms of the amino acids the mice were most sensitive for cysteine and least sensitive for proline, and among the three D-forms the animals displayed a lower sensitivity for D-proline compared to D-cysteine and D-methionine. A comparison between the present data and results obtained with other species showed that the CD-1 mice displayed a higher sensitivity than human subjects and spider monkeys with three (L-Cysteine, D-cysteine and L-proline) of the six amino acids. Results from this report support the idea that the number of functional olfactory receptor genes ...
The monito del monte (Spanish for "little monkey of the bush") or colocolo opossum, Dromiciops gliroides, also called chumaihuén in Mapudungun, is a diminutive marsupial native only to southwestern South America (Argentina and Chile). It is the only extant species in the ancient order Microbiotheria, and the sole New World representative of the superorder Australidelphia (all other New World marsupials are members of the paraphyletic "Ameridelphia"). The species is nocturnal and arboreal, and lives in thickets of South American mountain bamboo in the Valdivian temperate rain forests of the southern Andes, aided by its partially prehensile tail. It eats primarily insects and other small invertebrates, supplemented with fruit. The monito del monte is the sole extant member of the order Microbiotheria. It was first described by English zoologist Oldfield Thomas in 1894. The generic name Dromiciops is based on the resemblance of the monito del monte to the eastern pygmy possum (Cercartetus nanus), ...
A surprisingly diverse array of animals, from spiders to mammals, have adhesive structures on their feet that allow them to run along vertical surfaces, climb high in the canopy, or hang upside down to await their prey. Lizards, particularly geckos, have received a lot of attention throughout the last century because of the incredible weight-bearing ability of their adhesive pads. This ability is thanks in part to remarkable, tiny, hair-like projections on these pads, called setae. Similar structures have been found, and only recently described in detail, on the feet and tail of chameleons. Chameleons are a morphologically unique group of lizards, with tightly grasping, grouped, opposable toes and prehensile tails. The hair-like structures on their feet and tail do not confer adhesive advantages upon the slow and careful chameleon as they do on their cousins the geckos, but Eraqi Khannoon at the University of Glasgow and his international team of colleagues suspected that they might provide some ...
BT Cables is one of the few companies within the industry to have an environmental manifesto. The company is ISO 14001 certified and fully compliant with Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) requirements.. The company offers a full range of halogen-free flame retardant (HFFR) cables and has also recently achieved several environmental milestones, including a reduction of 3% in power consumption, the substitution of wooden battens by plastic wrapping (50%), the redesign of wooden drums to reduce the wood consumption (15%), collection of 70% of drums to be re-used in the domestic market and most significantly, there have been no environmental claims received for more than ten years.. Furthermore, BT Cables is working with The Carbon Trust, Groundwork EBS and The Manufacturing Institute to calculate its carbon footprint and reduce its impact on the environment by up to 25% in the next ten years.. ...

Prehensile tailed monkeys are the largest of the New World monkeys. Species range from 382 to 686 mm head and body length in the Atelinae and from 559 to 915 mm head and body length in the howler monkeys (Alouattinae). Atelinae tail length ranges from 508 to 890 mm and weight from 5.5 to 15 kg. Alouattinae tail length ranges from 585 to 915 mm and weight from 4 to 12 kg. Males are substantially larger than females in howler monkeys (Alouatta) and woolly monkeys (Lagothrix), sexes are similar in size in other genera. Dental formula is I 2/2; C1/1; P 3/3; M 3/3. (Nowak, 1991). Prehensile tailed monkeys are from pale buff or gray (Brachyteles) to dark black (Ateles) in pelage color. Males and females differ in color in some species of howler monkeys. Prehensile tailed monkeys tend to have long limbs, fingers, and tails. This is especially pronounced in spider monkeys and muriquis, where it is associated with brachiation and suspensory locomotion. Woolly monkeys and howler monkeys have more compact ...
Mustached tamarins, being callitrichines, have distinguishing features that set them apart from other New World monkeys. These include their diminutive body size and the presence of claw-like nails on all digits except the hallux. Mustached tamarins have also lost both their upper and lower 3rd molars and the hypocones on their upper molars. The dental formula is 2.1.3.2 / 2.1.3.2. Tamarins have spatulate incisors that are shorter than their canines, unlike marmosets which have incisors and canines of more similar size. The labial and lingual sides of their incisors are also thickened with enamel. Mustached tamarins have jet black pelage on their body and tail and a characteristic white stripe on their upper lip, which gives the appearance of a "white mustache." Mustached tamarins do not have prehensile tails. Mustached tamarins do not exhibit sexual dimorphism and there are only minor differences in body and canine size between males and females. On average, adult male mustached tamarins weigh ...

Woylies are small marsupials. They belong to the rat-kangaroo family. They were once found through much of mainland Australia south of the Tropic of Capricorn but are now restricted to isolated colonies in several parts of Western Australia. They are being introduced into areas which can be kept free of introduced predators such as small islands or fenced national parks. Woylie means stick carrier in the local south-west Nyoongar language and refers to the woylies habit of carrying bark, sticks and leaves in their prehensile tail.
In this paper we derive typical emission factors for coarse particulate matter (PM10), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), black carbon (BC), and number particle size distributions based on a combination of measurements and air quality dispersion modeling. The advantage of this approach is that the emission factors represent integrated emissions from several vehicle types and different types of wood stoves. Normally it is very difficult to estimate the total emissions in cities on the basis of laboratory measurements on single vehicles or stoves because of the large variability in conditions. The measurements were made in Temuco, Chile, between April 18 and June 15, 2005 at two sites. The first one was located in a residential area relatively far from major roads. The second site was located in a busy street in downtown Temuco where wood consumption is low. The measurements support the assumption that the monitoring sites represent the impact of different emission sources, namely traffic and residential ...

Seahorses, which are a type of fish, are too comely and graceful to fail to fascinate and arouse the inquisitive nature of any human being. They are one of the most awe-inspiring creations of the Nature. Seahorses are named so because they are marine in their habitat and have a horse-like head. Animal-analogy does not end here, as the biologists often describe seahorses as having monkey-like prehensile tail, kangaroo-like pouch, and chameleon-like eyes. In the Chinese language, a seahorse is known as Hai Ma (Haima). Seahorses high level of exploitatation in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has become a grave issue of international interests.

Get the paper! By: Mathieu Denoel. We aimed at examining whether distinct breeding site fidelity strategies may coexist at the intra-population level and how breeding resource characteristics and individual phenotype may affect these strategies in pond-breeding amphibians.. To this end, we took advantage of recent developments in multi-event capture-recapture models but also RFID telemetry to examine breeding dispersal in 946 marked great crested newts (Triturus cristatus) over a network of 73 ponds.. Our study revealed the existence of a dispersal polymorphism at the population level in the crested newt. We highlighted the coexistence of two dispersal phenotypes, namely, a highly site (i.e. pond) faithful phenotype and a lowly site faithful phenotype (i.e. a dispersing phenotype) at both intra and inter-annual scales. Breeding site infidelity was unexpectedly very high at both of them. Our results also showed that the probability that individuals belong to one or the other dispersal phenotypes ...

Parasites have been investigated for some New World primates; however, very little is known about ectoparasites and specifically fur mites. In this study, Alouatta palliata, Cebus capucinus, Saimiri oerstedii, and Ateles geoffroyi monkeys from different areas of Costa Rica were searched for fur mites. A total of 276 monkeys were evaluated, and 51 of them were positive for mites of the family Atopomelidae. Listrocarpus alouattae was identified on 22.3% of A. palliata; Listrocarpus capucinus on 12.8% of C. capucinus; and Listrocarpus costaricensis on 36.8% of S. oerstedii; No fur mites were found on A. geoffroyi. Sex was not considered a determinant of mite infestation, but prevalence was significantly higher in the Central Volcanic Mountain Range Conservation Area for L. alouattae (p=0.01) and in the Central Pacific Conservation Area for L. capucinus (p=0.002). These primate fur mites are highly host-specific. Differences in the geographical distribution may be due to monkey behavior and history, ...
When you think about the Virginia opossum, what comes to mind? I bet the image that comes to mind is not a particularly positive one: a vicious, hissing animal, scavenging through your garbage at night or digging holes in your yard.. Well Im here to tell you that contrary to those stereotypes, opossums are pretty darn great, and are an important part of North Americas ecosystems.. The Virginia opossum is the only marsupial species in North America. Like kangaroos and other marsupials, female opossums rear their young in a fur-lined pouch. Opossums also have opposable thumbs and prehensile tails that they use to help them climb trees. Although their hairless tail and pointy snout gives them a similar appearance to rats, opossums are not even in the same family as rodents. They do not dig holes, although they will readily seek shelter in holes dug by other animals.. You might think opossums are vicious because when confronted with a potential threat, they put up a fierce display, baring their ...

The restoration of the Mill Creek property offers an excellent opportunity to increase our understanding of the components that contribute to a healthy ecosystem. In recent years, forest amphibians have moved to the forefront of this process. Because of their high site fidelity, sensitivity to environmental perturbations and ease of detection, amphibians make excellent indicators of ecosystem health (Welsh and Ollivier 1998, Welsh and Droege 2001).

"The fact these monkeys correctly determined which faces belonged to in-group versus out-group members, corresponding to their personal experiences, validates the conclusion that capuchin monkeys view images of faces as humans do -- as individuals they do or do not know.. For the study, the capuchins viewed photographs of four different faces. One of the four pictures was of a capuchin from their own group, which they needed to tell apart from three strangers. They also needed to do the reverse, differentiating one stranger from three familiar individuals.. "This required monkeys to look at similar-looking faces and use their personal knowledge of group mates to solve the task," says Pokorny. "They readily performed the task and continued to do ...

In his famous English translation of Pushkins Eugene Onegin, Nabokov himself made some unique choices in an attempt to accurately portray the intent of the original. Line 8 of Canto XIV in Chapter One reads, in Russian: "bednyazhku tsaptsarap". The latter word, "tsaptsarap", is not a real word in Russian; but rather an onomatopoeic combination of "tsapat " (to snatch) and "tsarapat " (to scratch). Nabokov creates the word "scrab," a combination of grab and scratch, to mimic the portmanteau. Another good example comes in Canto VII of Chapter Four, when "dostoyno starïh obezyan" is transliterated as "worthy of old sapajous" rather than "old monkeys." Although the word "obezyan" directly translates as monkey, Nabokov notes that the line is adapted from a line Pushkin wrote in French two years before (Pushkin was fluent in French), reading "mais cette jouissance est digne dun vieux sapajou du dix-huitieme siecle". Sapajou, which incidentally is the French name for capuchin monkeys, has in ...

美洲西南部歐沙拉傳統(Oshara Tradition)的人早於古風時期(Archaic period)中期就有使用烏羽玉。在德克薩斯州發現的兩個烏羽玉標本就發現是屬於史前3780-3660年。這兩個標本的生物鹼抽取物就約有2%的麥司卡林,估計美洲原住民於最少5500年前就已經有使用烏羽玉。[11] 在墨西哥科阿韋拉州的洞穴發現的烏羽玉標本就屬於公元810-1070年。[12]. 紀錄最早使用烏羽玉的美洲原住民有墨西哥北部的惠考爾(Huichol)[13] 及其他奧克拉荷馬州及德克薩斯州部族。在阿薩巴斯卡語系的部族也有使用烏羽玉。通卡瓦人(Tonkawa)、梅斯卡勒羅人(Mescalero)及里本阿帕切族(Lipan Apache)是墨西哥北部最早信奉烏羽玉的部族。[14] ...
Ionizing radiation is the radiation produced by a nuclear detonation. Outside of the detonation zone this is the most critical issue for survivors. Initially, there is an intense burst of gamma and neutron radiation that travels outward from ground zero with the thermal radiation. Soil below the fireball can also become radioactive. The material from the bomb that is not consumed in the explosion, as well as debris incorporated into the fireball and made radioactive, will return to earth as radioactive fallout. This fallout will emit gamma, alpha, and beta radiation. Amounts of radiation experienced with a detonation depend on the method of detonation (air, surface or subsurface), what the components of the bomb are, and what type of bomb it is: fission (explosion and radiation) or fission-fusion (an initial nuclear explosive component that triggers a bigger reaction/explosion and radiation release). Environmental conditions, weather patterns, rain, wind, and terrain can greatly influence the ...
In the late 19th century, the issue of infanticide captured the attention of a significant number of journalists, psychiatric and medical writers and social commentators. The act of intentionally killing an infant within 24 hours of its birth was by no means new to this period. Yet changing socio-cultural and economic circumstances, combined with shifting perceptions of murder and deviant female behaviour, ensured that infanticide gradually evolved into a publicly prominent concern. While the history of infanticide has been assessed in various national contexts, analyses of this form of murder in Ireland have surfaced only sporadically; Cliona Rattigans recent study of early 20th-century Ireland being an exception.(1) Elaine Farrells A Most Diabolical Deed: Infanticide and Irish Society, 1850-1900 offers the first comprehensive account of how infanticide was performed, perceived, responded to and legally managed in late 19th-century Ireland. Farrell draws upon an impressive range of case ...
Prado, M. de O.. Yamamoto, L. U.. Resumo. Nos Estados Unidos, estima-se que a taxa anual de mortalidade de casos diagnosticados de trombose venosa profunda (TVP) é de 5% e de embolia pulmonar é de 15 a 20%. A embolia pulmonar é a mais grave complicação de TVP, sendo a terceira maior causa de óbito. Fibrinólise ocorre quando há formação de coágulo no vaso sanguíneo que é lisado pela plasmina, originando os produtos de degradação da fibrina (Dímero-D), caracterizando a fibrinólise secundária. A fibrinólise primária (fibrinogenólise) é detectada pela presença dos produtos de degradação do fibrinogênio (PDF). Neste trabalho, foram analisadas 42 amostras de pacientes com alterações adquiridas de coagulação, com a detecção da presença do Dímero-D/PDF, por meio da prova de Cloridrato de Protamina (CP) e pelo método imunológico Cardiac D-Dimer (Roche) (DD). O estudo comparativo dos dois testes mostrou que 27 amostras (64,3%) foram positivas para a reação de CP, com ...
