Systemic effects of arctic pollutants in beluga whales indicated by CYP1A1 expression. (1/12)

Cytochrome P450 1A1 (CYP1A1) is induced by exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and planar halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons (PHAHs) such as non-ortho polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). In this study, we examined CYP1A1 protein expression immunohistochemically in multiple organs of beluga whales from two locations in the Arctic and from the St. Lawrence estuary. These beluga populations have some of the lowest (Arctic sites) and highest (St. Lawrence estuary) concentrations of PCBs in blubber of all cetaceans. Samples from these populations might be expected to have different contaminant-induced responses, reflecting their different exposure histories. The pattern and extent of CYP1A1 staining in whales from all three locations were similar to those seen in animal models in which CYP1A has been highly induced, indicating a high-level expression in these whales. CYP1A1 induction has been related to toxic effects of PHAHs or PAHs in some species. In St. Lawrence beluga, the high level of CYP1A1 expression coupled with high levels of contaminants (including CYP1A1 substrates, e.g., PAH procarcinogens potentially activated by CYP1A1) indicates that CYP1A1 could be involved in the development of neoplastic lesions seen in the St. Lawrence beluga population. The systemic high-level expression of CYP1A1 in Arctic beluga suggests that effects of PAHs or PHAHs may be expected in Arctic populations, as well. The high-level expression of CYP1A1 in the Arctic beluga suggests that this species is highly sensitive to CYP1A1 induction by aryl hydrocarbon receptor agonists.  (+info)

Basal body temperature method for detecting ovarian cycle in the Captive Beluga (Delphinapterus leucas). (2/12)

The relationship between basal body temperature and circulating progesterone levels were investigated in a female beluga. Body temperature and serum concentrations of progesterone were measured daily and at 2-4 week intervals respectively, in a female beluga that was in captivity for 7 years between 1996 and 2003. The beluga first ovulated in April, 2000 (13 years old). Thereafter, serum concentrations of progesterone showed cyclic changes, indicating that the ovulatory cycle had started. Serum concentrations of progesterone ranged from 0.1 ng/ml to 15.7 ng/ml. Body temperature also showed cyclic changes during the estrous cycle. Body temperature ranged from 34.9 to 35.9 C, and tended to reach the peak during the high progesterone phase. Mating behavior was observed during the low body temperature phase. The changes in body temperature positively correlated with the circulating progesterone levels. The length of the estrous cycle was 36.7 +/- 3.9 (mean +/- SEM) days based on the intervals between the days of mating behavior. This is the first report demonstrating that body temperature clearly changes during the estrous cycle in a captive female beluga. The present finding suggests that measurement of body temperature is a useful method for detecting the ovarian cycle of the beluga in captivity.  (+info)

Study on reproduction of captive marine mammals. (6/12)

The reproductive endocrinological characteristics of beluga, killer whale, spotted seal and bottlenose dolphin were evaluated and used in conjunction with applied reproductive research to enhance captive breeding programs. Results from 8 y of biweekly serum progesterone determination in a female beluga indicated that sexual maturity occured at approximately age 13, two to seven estrous cycles, lasting 37 +/- 3.9 days, per yr began in April-May every year. Rectal temperature was positively correlated with serum progesterone levels and negatively associated with behavioral estrus. In five cases of pregnancy of two female killer whale, positive relationship was found between serum progesterone concentration and temperature during the first period of 18 month-gestation. In the normal parturitions (n=4), rectal temperature decreased 0.8 C lower than average rectal temperature during pregnancy. Sexual maturity of female killer whales occurred at age nine. Yearly contraception in the mono-estrus captive spotted seals (n=10) using a single dose of the progestagen (proligestone(TM); 5 or 10 mg/kg s.c.) was achieved in 94% (33/35) of the attempts over 5 yr when the hormone was administered two months prior to the breeding season. Artificial insemination trials (n=4) were conducted in female bottlenose dolphin (n=3) using fresh and frozen-thawed semen. Estrus synchronization using regumate (27 days) resulted in ovulation occurring 19 to 24 days post withdrawal. Conception was confirmed in 75% of the attempts, with two females successfully delivering calves.  (+info)

Visual laterality of calf-mother interactions in wild whales. (8/12)

 (+info)

Cook Inlet belugas are one of five populations of belugas recognized within U.S. waters. The other beluga populations, which are not listed as threatened or endangered, summer in Bristol Bay, the eastern Bering Sea, the eastern Chukchi Sea and the Beaufort Sea. Of the five populations of beluga whales in Alaska, the Cook Inlet population is considered to be the most isolated based on the degree of genetic differentiation and geographic distance between the Cook Inlet population and the four other beluga populations. The recovery of Cook Inlet whales is potentially hindered by severe stranding events; continued development within and along upper Cook Inlet; industrial and municipal activities that discharge or accidentally spill pollutants; disease; predation by killer whales and losses of available prey to fishing or loss of prey habitat. Protecting habitat is essential to the beluga whales recovery.. Comments on the proposed critical habitat area must be received by Jan. 31, 2010. Send ...
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - SeaWorld Orlando says a beluga whale died shortly after it was born at the theme park and an investigation has begun into the cause of death.. The Orlando Sentinel reports that theme park officials say the calf was born this past week but was unusually weak and rose to the surface briefly before sinking to the bottom of a pool. Its mother was 17-year-old Whisper, who has lived at SeaWorld Orlando since 2010.. SeaWorld said animal care teams tried to revive the calf but were unable to save it. The cause of the newborn whales death is unclear.. Park officials say they will run a full post-mortem examination, which could take several weeks before results are finalized. They also say Whispers pregnancy appeared normal.. Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.. ...

The first recorded cetacean in captivity was a beluga whale that lived in the Boston Aquarial and Zoological Gardens (PDF) in 1861. Later that year, P.T. Barnum (the eventual founder of the Barnum and Bailey Circus) displayed two beluga whales in the basement of his New York City American Museum (not the American Museum of Natural History), followed by at least nine whales that lived and died while on display by Barnum between 1861 and 1865. Throughout the 1870s several aquariums in the United States and in Europe began to showcase particular whale species, such as beluga whales and oceanic dolphins, though few were able to keep them alive for very long. In 1938, Floridas Marine Studios, initially built as a film location for underwater productions, was quickly reinvented into a tourist attraction once the owners discovered the dolphins theatrical talents. It wasnt until the 1950s and 60s that people realized dolphins could be trained to perform elaborate tricks and routines. The U.S. Navy ...

A Beluga whale has become a sensation at an aquarium after learning how to blow halo-shaped bubbles. The extraordinary sight was captured on camera by photographer Hiroya Minakuchi at the Shimane aquarium in Japan. He said: "This beluga started making bubble rings when she was seven. And a couple of years ago she developed her technique. Now she blows the water from her mouth to make a current, which is not visible for us underwater. She then blows air from her blow hole into the current and that makes a ring shape." ...
The first part of the present study evaluated tissue concentrations of twelve essential and non-essential elements in four arctic marine mammal species important as subsistence resources to indigenous Alaskans. Species sampled included: bowhead whales, beluga whales, ringed seals, and polar bears. Concentrations of As, Cd, Co, Cu, Pb, Mg, Mn, Hg, Mo, Se, Ag, and Zn, were analyzed in liver, kidney, muscle, blubber, and epidermis (the latter in cetaceans only). Elements that were identified as having tissue concentrations, which in domesticated species would have been considered higher than normal and/or even toxic, were Cd, Hg, Ag, and Se. However, the concentrations of these elements were consistent with previous reports for arctic marine mammals. Remaining elements were at concentrations within normal ranges for domesticated species, although Cu was found frequently at concentrations that would be considered marginal or deficient in terrestrial domesticated animals. Across-species comparisons revealed
The geologic history of Burlingtons South End neighborhood is a small piece of the ancient story that has shaped the landscape of the entire city. The story begins with the 1.3 billion year old Grenville supercontinent, which evolved into the Adirondack Mountain range, the formation of the mighty Iapetus Ocean, and the rise of the Green Mountains. In much more recent history, the south end was radically transformed by an ice age. In the most recent advance, glaciers filled the Champlain Valley with ice a mile thick, leaving deposits of glacial till we can still find in our soils, today. As the glacier retreated 14,000-15,000 years ago, the melt water filled the Champlain Valley, forming Lake Vermont. As the glacier retreated even further north, ocean water from the St. Lawrence Seaway flooded the basin approximately 13,000 years ago. This introduction of salt water created the Champlain Sea, a home for beluga whales and other salt water aquatic inhabitants. Around 11,000 years ago, this great ...
Through a detailed genetic study of kinship, an international team is the first to demonstrate that just like human societies, beluga whales appear to value culture as well as their ancestral roots and family ties.

Inuit consume a diet of foods that are fished, hunted, and gathered locally. According to Edmund Searles in his article "Food and the Making of Modern Inuit Identities", they consume this type of diet because a mostly meat diet is "effective in keeping the body warm, making the body strong, keeping the body fit, and even making that body healthy". Hunted meats: Sea mammals such as walrus, seal, and whale. Whale meat generally comes from the narwhal, beluga whale and the bowhead whale. The latter is able to feed an entire community for nearly a year from its meat, blubber, and skin. Inuit hunters most often hunt juvenile whales which, compared to adults, are safer to hunt and have tastier skin. Ringed seal and bearded seal are the most important aspect of an Inuit diet and is often the largest part of an Inuit hunters diet.

Marine mammals possess adaptations for repetitive and extended diving to great depths without suffering the ill effects seen in humans [e.g. decompression sickness (DCS)] which involve altered immune activity. In recent decades, DCS-like symptoms in marine mammals have increased concerns about marine mammal health and whether anthropogenic activities can interfere with adaptive dive responses, increasing susceptibility to dive related pathologies. The purpose of this work was to address these concerns by: 1) evaluating the in vitro response of marine mammal immune cells to increased pressure, 2) comparing the response of cells between baseline and stressor conditions, and 3) developing a non -invasive means of monitoring cortisol in belugas (Delphinapterus leucas). Blood samples were obtained from belugas during baseline and stressor (e.g. out of water examination, wild chase and capture) conditions, as well as from stranded harbor seals (Phoca vitulina), harp seals (Phoca groenlandica) and grey seals
Habitat. Arctic and sub-Arctic waters, but some populations migrate south to warmer water in the summer. Belugas Arctic habitat overlaps with the Narwhals habitat.

Calves are not white like the adults; they are blue to brownish-red for in their first year; in the second year they are gray to blue and by the 6th year, they are white. ...
The study is based on data gathered by the Kandalaksha State Sanctuary during 1947-1961. Most of the mammals were observed from islands during the navigational (free ice) period. It appears that the number of belugas that visit the gulf has greatly decreased. The greatest numbers of the mammals were observed in August-September -- a time when large concentrations of herring approach the coast. Usually, the number of belugas varies from year to year; the minimum was reached in 1948-1951 (5 in a year); the maxima in 1953 (37) and 1947 (32). (Author)(*CETACEA
But you know what?  With an ETA 2824 inside and a price tag of $810, I would be surprised if the 300 pieces had a hard time finding new homes (though one wonders how many will opt for the more traditional bezel insert; there’s also word of a plain steel insert in the offing).  And that’s a good thing, because that opens up the door for a 2nd gen of the MWW Beluga.  And, as we saw with the earlier watches, the brand is not afraid to change things up and improve the models for better traction.  There was, of course, some pushback on the forums with the bezel, and the brand reacted quickly to that.  Small brands do rise and fall on the sales of their new stuff, but they’re also able to pivot quickly.  That means, while the MWW Beluga may not have been quite a home run for me, I still am looking forward to seeing what comes next from the brand.  manchesterwatchworks.com. ...

Nosotros proponemos que estas ocurrencias implican que el grupo, hoy día restringido a aguas Árticas y sub-Árticas, era tropical a sub-tropical en el pasado. El especimen que sirve de base para la descripción de Bohaskaia tiene una larga historia en el NMNH. Originalmente fue encontrado en 1969 en una localidad conocida como Rices Pit en Hampton, Virginia. Frank C. Withmore, Jr., uno de los miembros fundadores de la Sociedad de Paleontología de Vertebrados y desde hace mucho tiempo miembro de la comunidad científica del Smithsonian , a través de su vínculo con el Servicio Geológico, reconoció el parecido a los monodóntidos del especimen, en especial su similitud con las belugas, lo cual mencionó en varias publicaciones.

The Volga River drains much of western Russia’s industrial region as it travels southward to empty into the Caspian Sea. Over thousands of years, the river has built a tremendous delta that forms the northwestern shoreline of the Caspian Sea. The delta channels provide transportation between the heartland of Russia and the oil-rich Caspian Sea. The Volga’s extensive distributaries (branches to the sea) harbor habitat and rich fishing grounds for Russia’s famous beluga sturgeon, the source of beluga caviar. The delta’s wetlands, parts of which are designated as the Astrakhanskiy Biosphere Reserve, are important stopping points and breeding grounds for migrating water birds. This detailed astronaut photograph zooms in on a shipping channel in the western part of the delta.

Oceanic dolphins or Delphinidae are a widely distributed family of dolphins that live in the sea. Thirty extant species are described. They include several big species whose common names contain "whale" rather than "dolphin", such as the killer whale and the pilot whales. Delphinidae is a family within the superfamily Delphinoidea, which also includes the porpoises (Phocoenidae) and the Monodontidae (beluga whale and narwhal). River dolphins are relatives of the Delphinoidea. Oceanic dolphins range in size from the 5.6-foot (1.7 m)-long and 110-pound (50 kg) Mauis dolphin to the 31-foot (9.4 m) and 11-short-ton (10.0 t) killer whale, the largest known dolphin. Several species exhibit sexual dimorphism; the males are larger than females. They have streamlined bodies and two limbs that are modified into flippers. Though not quite as flexible as seals, some dolphins can travel at 34.5 mph (55.5 km/h). Most delphinids primarily eat fish, along with a smaller number of squid and small crustaceans, ...

Male polar bears average nearly 900 pounds in weight, with one weighing in at 1,760 pounds; by comparison, the average brown bear weighs in at 600 pounds. Females are smaller, averaging about 550 pounds. Black skin is kept warm by a six-inch layer of fat and the hollow hairs of the fur, which directs sunlight to the skin to help warm it. The polar bear is the most carnivorous of all the bears, feeding on seals, walrus, beluga whales, and animals as small as lemmings and mussels. Further inland they may eat berries; in the town of Churchill, Canada, they have been observed feeding in the garbage dumps. Polar bears have a strong sense of smell, and can find food from walking several miles on the scent alone. Strong swimmers as well, they have been sighted over one hundred miles out to sea Polar bears hibernate through much of the winter, usually in an excavated snow den. Cubs are born in the spring, and stay with their mother for up to two years. Males, which are generally solitary, will at times ...
Background: The members of genus Leucas possess high economic potential. As medicinal herbs these were well known as Droṇapuhṣpī in Ayurveda literature. The present study aims to carry out the phytochemical screening as well as the HPTLC fingerprint profiling of three species of Leucas. Materials and Methods: Aqueous, methanol, ethanol and chloroform extracts of each plant were subjected to qualitative phytochemical screening. The total phenols, flavonoids and tannins were quantified in the methanolic extract by standard spectrophotometric methods. HPTLC method for the separation of the active constituents in extracts has been developed and TLC of the methanolic extracts on silica gel pre-coated aluminum plates of Merck by automatic TLC applicator and using solvent system Toluene: ethyl acetate:7:3 was performed. Results: Preliminary phytochemical screening of different extracts showed the presence of different phytoconstituents such as flavonoids, terpenes, tannins, carbohydrates, ...
Inorganic Hg was localized through autometallography in beluga hepatic and renal light microscopic sections. Metal grains occurred at high densities in kidney cortical tubular epithelium, with lower densities in medullary tubular epithelium. In liver, metal grain deposition showed marked zonation, accumulating in periportal regions of whales with lower tissue Hg. In belugas with higher hepatic Hg, metal grains were most abundant periportally, but also found pericentrally and midzonally. Metal grains concentrated in stellate macrophages, with much lower numbers in hepatocytic cytoplasm. Staining intensities correlated with tissue concentrations of inorganic, organic, and total Hg. Although hepatic lipofuscin and metal grains were sometimes co-localized, they more often were not. Because marked lipofuscin deposition occurs independent of Hg, causality between hepatic Hg concentration, lipofuscin deposition, and hepatic lesions cannot be inferred ...
In time-honoured fashion, the preparations for our party had been well thought out, but then thwarted by a combination of things which conspired to make us not prepared in time, and the result was, as usual, we were running around like blue-arsed flies on Sunday morning getting ready. First of all, Saturday morning was speech day at school, so we all had to traipse in and listen to the head master and chairman of governors burbling on. None of the kids picked up any silverware or even paper certificates, so we headed out soon afterwards and went for lunch in our favourite Uzbek restaurant in town, Alasha. This is a great restaurant, all done out in Uzbek style and owned by three oligarchs who pretty much own everything in Kazakhstan, with turrets and little private rooms, embroidered dressing gowns to wear when it is chilly and you are sitting outside.

A duck of cold northern waters. Often the most abundant bird in the high Arctic. Large flocks are often far out at sea; many spend the winter on such northern waters as Bering Sea, Hudson Bay, and Great Lakes. Flocks fly low over sea, with stiff shallow wingbeats, often tilting from side to side. Far more vocal than most ducks, and loud melodious calls of flocks can be heard from some distance. It was formerly called Oldsquaw, not politically correct by any measure, a reference to this talkative behavior -- although it is the male of this species that makes most of the noise.
The Importance of Basal Body Temperature:. As you might be already aware, there are various methods to determine whether you are fertile. One among these is your basal body temperature charting. The method of basal body temperature charting would help determine when you are likely to ovulate. So, how to use this method? Lets see here now:. While using this method, you will be tracking your bodys basal temperature. In simple terms, the basal body temperature can be defined as the lowest temperature that the body would experience in a 24-hour period. In order to note down your basal body temperature, you need to take the readings when your body is completely idle. This is why its advisable to track the basal body temperature immediately after waking up from your sleep.. Its to be noted here that your basal body temperature will be more or less stable with just some minor fluctuations. While this is the case during all the days of a menstrual cycle, you would see a slight, as well as steady ...

Basal body temperature is the lowest temperature attained by the body during rest (usually during sleep). It is generally measured immediately after awakening and before any physical activity has been undertaken, although the temperature measured at that time is somewhat higher than the true basal body temperature. In
After a month of charting, you should be able to connect the dots to see the outline of a curve formed by a series of low points prior to ovulation and a series of high points following ovulation. This pattern should help you determine a significant information about your cycle including when you ovulate, the length of your luteal cycle (important for implantation), and whether you have fertile-like cervical fluid prior to ovulation as outlined in TCOYF.. If your BBT chart is difficult to decipher, I highly recommend that you take your chart to an acupuncturist or other medical professional familiar with trouble-shooting basal body temperature charts. Our bodies do not perform like robots, therefore, it is normal to have temperatures that are outliers but still considered part of a normal pattern. Someone that has looked at hundreds or thousands of basal body temperature will help you determine whether something is abnormal and eliminate the guess work for you.. Next week, we will discuss the ...

By decreasing of sturgeon stocks in the Caspian Sea, the culture of different sturgeon species especially Huso huso was increased in Iran. Under stress conditions sturgeon can easily be infected by several opportunistic pathogens. In June 2011, mortality happened in 25-28°C water temperature, in one of the most important cultured sturgeon farms in Mazandaran province in the north of Iran. The mortality rate was 15%. The first clinical signs in moribund fish were lethargy and anorexia. A total of 20 moribund fish was transferred to a central laboratory for more bacteriological examination. Clinical signs including several deep ulcers on body surface, around the head, under operculum and the base of the pectoral fins, hemorrhage around of the anus, operculum, necrosis of the base of the pectoral fin and paleness gill was observed in moribund fish. The main internal signs were hepatomegally and spleenomegally, liquid accumulation in the intestine and diffuse visceral hemorrhage. The results of morphology

Charting your basal body temperature gives you valuable insight and information about your menstrual cycle. Simply taking your temperature every morning tells you when you have ovulated, shows where you may have fertility problems and can even tell you that you are pregnant. However, using your basal body temperature as a sign of pregnancy is easier if you have been charting it for several months. Reading and interpreting your basal temperature chart takes practice. Once you become adept at understanding your temperature cycle and chart as well as determining your exact day of ovulation, then when your chart does start to show a pregnancy, it will probably stand out.. ...

Question - Difficulty in ovulation, have regular periods. How can I correct this?. Ask a Doctor about Basal body temperature, Ask an OBGYN, Gynecologic Oncology
If youre approaching your mid 30s and are starting to think about kids, you may want to consider getting some of your hormones tested. You might be thinking, "My periods are like clockwork, isnt that good enough?" Maybe - but having regular periods doesnt truly give us a glimpse of your hormones. As we age, our hormones begin to change, and it can take longer to become pregnant. Normally its recommended that people under 35 seek care (ie. go to a fertility clinic) if theyve been trying for about 12 months without a live birth. If youre over 35, then its recommended that you seek care if youve been trying for 6 months without a live birth. Its been my experience in practise where couples under 35 dont want to wait out that full year before they begin to seek out help. Measuring basal body temperature, assessing cervical fluid, using ovulation predictor kits, timing sex, and the two week wait can be really stressful - and after a few months of unsuccess, people are ready for answers. ...
