Diseases, lesions and malformations in the long-beaked common dolphin Delphinus capensis from the Southeast Pacific. (1/8)

Miscellaneous lesions of the head, skull, teeth, trunk, appendages, skin and genital tract were observed in 120 of 930 long-beaked common dolphins Delphinus capensis taken in fisheries off Peru between 1985 and 2000. Seven subsamples were defined according to the varying field sampling protocols. Forty-two dolphins showed at least 2 types of injuries or diseases affecting 1 or more organs. The majority (5 of 7) of traumas encountered were diagnosed as caused by violent, fisheries-related interactions, and the skin in 20.4 % of specimens (n = 54) showed healed scars from such interactions. Prevalences of malformations and traumas of crania (n = 103) were 2.9 and 1.9%, respectively. Lytic cranial lesions were present in 31.1% of dolphins (n = 103) and accounted for 84.2% of all bone injuries. Skull damage diagnostic for Crassicauda sp. infestation was encountered in 26.5% of dolphins (n = 98) and did not differ among sex and age classes. Crassicauda sp. and tooth infections were responsible for, respectively, 78.8 and 6.1% of the lytic lesions. Adult dolphins showed a high prevalence of worn and broken teeth (35%, n = 20) as well as damaged alveoli (20%, n = 70). Prevalence of 'paired teeth', a congenital condition, was 9.4% (n = 32). Lesions of the head, body and appendages were present in 10 dolphins and included traumas, deformations (e.g. scoliokyphosis and brachygnathia) and chronic mastitis. Ovarian cysts suggestive of follicular cysts were observed in 1 of 24 females. Chronic orchitis affected 1 of 78 males. Of 12 dolphins 2 had vesicular lesions of the penis. Prevalence of cutaneous lesions, abnormalities and scars ranged between 1.8% (n = 56) and 48.2% (n = 27).  (+info)

Comparative anatomy of the foramen ovale in the hearts of cetaceans. (2/8)

The structure of the cardiac foramen ovale from 17 species representing six cetacean families, the Monodontidae, Phocoenidae, Delphinidae, Ziphiidae, Balaenidae and the Balaenopteridae, was studied using the scanning electron microscope. Eight white whale fetuses (Delphinapterus leucas) and a narwhal fetus (Monodon monoceros) represented the Monodontidae; one fetal and nine neonatal harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) and a finless porpoise fetus (Neophocoena phocoenoides) represented the Phocoenidae; two white-beaked dolphin fetuses (Lagenorhynchus albirostris), four fetal and one neonatal Atlantic white-sided dolphins (Lagenorhynchus acutus), a Risso's dolphin fetus (Grampus griseus), two common bottle-nosed dolphin neonates (Tursiops truncatus), a female short-beaked common dolphin fetus (Delphinus delphis), four killer whale fetuses (Orcinus orca) and two long-finned pilot whale fetuses (Globicephala melas) represented the Delphinidae; two northern bottlenose whale fetuses (Hyperoodon ampullatus) represented the Ziphiidae; one bowhead whale fetus (Balaena mysticetus) represented the Balaenidae and five Common minke whale fetuses (Balaenoptera acutorostrata), one blue whale fetus (Balaenoptera musculus), nine fin whale fetuses (Balaenoptera physalus) and four humpback whale fetuses (Megaptera novaeangliae) represented the Balaenopteridae. The hearts of an additional two incompletely identified toothed and four baleen whale fetuses were also studied. In each species the fold of tissue derived from the cardiac septum primum and subtended by the foramen ovale had the appearance of a short tunnel or sleeve which was fenestrated at its distal end. In the toothed whales the tissue fold was tunnel-shaped with the interatrial septum as the floor whereas in baleen whales it was more sleeve-like. In toothed whales thin threads extended from the fold to insert into the interatrial septum whereas a network of threads covered the distal end of the sleeve in the baleen whales. Similar structures were present in the corresponding cardiac tissues of neonatal Hippopotamidae.  (+info)

History of expansion and anthropogenic collapse in a top marine predator of the Black Sea estimated from genetic data. (6/8)

Two major ecological transitions marked the history of the Black Sea after the last Ice Age. The first was the postglacial transition from a brackish-water to a marine ecosystem dominated by porpoises and dolphins once this basin was reconnected back to the Mediterranean Sea (ca. 8,000 y B.P.). The second occurred during the past decades, when overfishing and hunting activities brought these predators close to extinction, having a deep impact on the structure and dynamics of the ecosystem. Estimating the extent of this decimation is essential for characterizing this ecosystem's dynamics and for formulating restoration plans. However, this extent is poorly documented in historical records. We addressed this issue for one of the main Black Sea predators, the harbor porpoise, using a population genetics approach. Analyzing its genetic diversity using an approximate Bayesian computation approach, we show that only a demographic expansion (at most 5,000 y ago) followed by a contemporaneous population collapse can explain the observed genetic data. We demonstrate that both the postglacial settlement of harbor porpoises in the Black Sea and the recent anthropogenic activities have left a clear footprint on their genetic diversity. Specifically, we infer a strong population reduction (~90%) that occurred within the past 5 decades, which can therefore clearly be related to the recent massive killing of small cetaceans and to the continuing incidental catches in commercial fisheries. Our study thus provides a quantitative assessment of these demographically catastrophic events, also showing that two separate historical events can be inferred from contemporary genetic data.  (+info)

An early morning walk along a water channel through an industrial area turned up a few nice birds, including Whimbrel, Black-crowned Night-heron, Snowy Egret, and a Caspian Tern. A California Towhee was feeding its young on a fence behind the motel. We crossed over the hills to the coast, which we first encountered at Rockaway Beach, south of Pacifica. There, we encountered for the first time the incredible richness of the coastal bird life, with lots of gulls (first life bird: the oh-so-abundant Western Gull) and such goodies (for a midwesterner) as Brown Pelicans, lots of Western Grebes, Surf Scoters, a Pacific Loon, a Black Oystercatcher, and some Pigeon Guillemots. Furthermore, there were Harbor Seals, and even some dolphins (possibly all gray, long-snouted with a white snout tip, and a prominent recurved dorsal fin, indicating either Bottlenose or Common Dolphin, both unusual this far north). A short drive north brought us into San Francisco to Lake Merced, where a Red Phalarope had been ...
Further to a damning report last year which revealed damage to vehicles from potholes and bad road surfaces amounted to £320 million in 2006, 2007 showed little improvement according to figures released by the AA motoring organisation last weekend. The latest statistics show that 12% or 120,000 out of all of the UKs one million potholes are not being filled by local councils, which means that repair bills are now soaring every year because of the lack of maintenance by government authorities. Since 1996, the number of claims has soared by 78% in London alone, by 42% in England and by 70% in Wales.. This presents a worrying situation for motorists says TyreSafe as there are signs that a turnaround in the level of maintenance of the UKs roads is still a long way off. It is estimated by the Local Government Association that it would need another £200m a year to reach the target the government has set for filling in potholes by 2010.. Motorists are most at risk from potholes in hours of darkness ...

The common dolphins underwent centuries of evolution to move from terrestrial to aquatic mammals. These mammals share much of their evolution with the other members of the Cetacea. Various genes went through positive selection, or Darwinian selection, to be in the form they take today. Numerous studies show the about 2.26%-4.8%, around 376 genes, of genes were selected for with positive selection. This gene selection is believed to help the overall system development, pattern of specification process, and mesoderm development.[6] Morphological evolution is evident as the Delphinus form is significantly different than the body of the Pakicetus. In dolphins, there is a overrepresentation in genes of MET, FOXP2, TRIM63, FOXO3, CD2, and PTCH1 which are possibly responsible for the morphological evolution. Evidence shows that there could be changes in transcription factors, expression patterns, and in protein function that is also responsible for the morphological changes.[7] Adapting to the aquatics ...

Vivergo Fuels, the UKs largest producer of bioethanol, is warning that the UKs bioethanol industry and the thousands of jobs it supports are at risk, unless the Government backtracks on a recent recommendation.. Vivergo welcomes the UK governments recent proposal to increase renewables in transport, but it has major concerns around proposals to limit the amount of crops used to produce fuels such as ethanol via a so called crop cap. The Department for Transport recently proposed a low cap of 2% compared to a European standard of 7%, although it also consulted on as low as 0%.. In a statement, Vivergo said that a crop cap of 2% or less would not only severely impact on the UKs ability to effectively implement E10 - a greener fuel containing 10% bioethanol - but it could also lead to the closure of the industry.. According to the company, this would risk thousands of jobs throughout Vivergos supply chain, affect the livelihoods of farmers that sell feed wheat for its production and buy its ...
Teesside is set to become the UKs first ever hydrogen transport hub, under plans announced by transport secretary Grant Shapps today. (30/9/20).. Bringing together representatives from academia, industry and government to drive forward the UKs plans to embrace the use of hydrogen as an alternative fuel could, say ministers, create hundreds of jobs while seeing the region become a global leader in the green hydrogen sector.. The DfT have commissioned a masterplan to understand the feasibility of the hub and how it can accelerate the UKs ambitions in hydrogen. The masterplan, expected to be published in January, will pave the way for exploring how green hydrogen could power buses, lorries, rail, maritime and aviation transport across the UK.. The aim would then be for the region to become a global leader in industrial research on the subject of hydrogen as a fuel, as well as research and development hub for hydrogen transport more generally, attracting hundreds of jobs and boosting the local ...

Discussions about the creative industries have traditionally been plagued by fuzzy definitions. Seemingly which industries were classified as creative and which were not was a political judgement - not something informed by data. However, our 2013 report A [4]Dynamic Mapping of the UKs Creative Industries [5] identified in the data a distinguishing characteristic of the creative industries, namely that workers doing creative jobs (defined as satisfying a set of explicit criteria) account for a high proportion of their workforce ( their creative intensity).[1]. This approach to identifying a set of industries as creative has the additional attraction of providing a clear definition of the creative economy within which the creative industries sit - namely, the sum of creative jobs outside the creative industries and all jobs (creative and non-creative) in the creative industries. The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) adopted this methodology for classifying specific ...
