Most urban mammals are small. However, one of the largest marsupials, the Eastern Grey Kangaroo Macropus giganteus, occurs in some urban areas. In 2007, we embarked on a longitudinal study of this species in the seaside town of Anglesea in southern Victoria, Australia. We have captured and tagged 360 individuals to date, fitting each adult with a collar displaying its name. We have monitored survival, reproduction and movements by resighting, recapture and radio-tracking, augmented by citizen science reports of collared individuals. Kangaroos occurred throughout the town, but the golf course formed the nucleus of this urban population. The course supported a high density of kangaroos (2-5/ha), and approximately half of them were tagged. Total counts of kangaroos on the golf course were highest in summer, at the peak of the mating season, and lowest in winter, when many males but not females left the course. Almost all tagged adult females were sedentary, using only part of the golf course and adjacent
The extracellular electrical activity of the stomach and small intestine of a macropodid marsupial was studied using chronically implanted bipolar electrodes. Recordings from the elongate, tubular, haustrated stomach showed triphasic slow waves with a frequency of 5.5/min, an amplitude of 120 microV and an aborad propagation rate of 3 mm/sec. Action potentials were recorded only from the pylorus. These occurred as bursts of six to fourteen consecutive spikes. Shortly after the period of regular spike activity occurred in the adjacent duodenum action potentials in the pylorus ceased, leaving only the slow wave present for up to 20 min. Both slow waves and action potentials were recorded from the small intestine. There was no decrease in the frequency of the slow wave from the duodenum to the ileum. The slow wave frequency was 26/min on the duodenum and 25/min on the ileum. These frequencies were not affected by fasting the animals. Migrating myoelectric complex activity of the small intestine ...
The attachment of cells to a base, i.e. basement membrane in vivo or tissue culture plate in vitro, has been shown to be important in maintaining basic cell function (Shannon et al., 1987). The cells isolated from M. eugenii in this experiment did not adhere to the tissue culture plates but remained as a suspended monolayer just above the base of the plate. However, these cells appear to retain their original morphology, including the presence of lamellar bodies (Fig. 5A,B), and function (e.g. their ability to secrete proteins and lipids). Secretion studies have also been performed on suspended cells from another marsupial, the fat-tailed dunnart (Ormond et al., 2001), as well as a lizard, frog and lungfish (Wood et al., 1999, 2000).. At 30 days of age, the basal secretion of PC was significantly higher than that at 70 days, suggesting that, at this early stage, the cells are extremely active and they secrete very large amounts of surfactant. This finding, therefore, supports the morphological ...
Marsupials such as the tammar wallaby (M.Eugenii) have a short gestation (29.3 days) and at birth the altricial young resembles a fetus, and the major development occurs postnatally while the young remains in the mothers pouch. The essential functional factors for the maturation of the neonate are provided by the milk which changes in composition progressively throughout lactation (300 days). Morphologically the lungs of tammar pouch young are immature at birth and the majority of their development occurs during the first 100 days of lactation. In this study mouse embryonic lungs (E-12) were cultured in media with tammar skim milk collected at key time points of lactation to identify factors involved in regulating postnatal lung maturation. Remarkably the embryonic lungs showed increased branching morphogenesis and this effect was restricted to milk collected at specific time points between approximately day 40 to 100 lactation. Further analysis to assess lung development showed a significant increase
Dendrolagus comes from the Greek word dendron, meaning tree, and lagos, meaning hare. Dendrolagus matschiei was named after the German zoologist Paul Matschie, who discovered several other species of tree kangaroo. In captivity, tree kangaroos are particularly susceptible to atypical strains of mycobacteria, resulting in tubercular lesions. In a 1990 survey of institutions holding tree kangaroos, 8% of necropsies involved mycobacterial infections (excluding newborns). For Matschies tree kangaroos, 73 % of reported mycobacterial infections were traced to an avian strain of tuberculosis. Routes of infection are assumed to be similar to those in humans: inhalation of infectious aerosols or inoculation from wounds or lacerations, yet animals housed together with infected individuals do not become infected. As in humans, most infections are believed to be acquired from the environment, not other individuals.. In the past, tree kangaroos infected with mycobacteria were often euthanized without any ...
It turns out that marsupials do not just make more genes for cathelicidin proteins, they also make more potent ones. Two cathelicidin proteins from the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) were able to kill two different antibiotic-resistant bacteria (Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) [1].. A team of Australian researchers argued the Tasmanian devils may have an even greater need than wallabies for strong, broad-spectrum antimicrobials [1]. Offspring are born after only 30 days of gestation and weigh only 0.3 grams [1]. To get an idea of just how small this is, a paper clip weighs around 1 gram. Add to this highly altricial start the observation that Tasmanian devils lead a very aggressive lifestyle (they are not called devils for nothing), resulting in cuts and bites that require pathogen protection. If the calm tammar wallaby makes such potent proteins, what about the truculent Tasmanian devil?. To address this question, researchers Emma Peel and her colleagues began by searching ...
Abstract. The Tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) harbors unique gut bacteria and produces only one-fifth the amount of methane produced by ruminants per unit of digestible energy intake. We have isolated a dominant bacterial species (WG-1) from the wallaby microbiota affiliated with the family Succinivibrionaceae and implicated in lower methane emissions from starch-containing diets. This was achieved by using a partial reconstruction of the bacteriums metabolism from binned metagenomic data (nitrogen and carbohydrate utilization pathways and antibiotic resistance) to devise cultivation-based strategies that produced axenic WG-1 cultures. Pure-culture studies confirm that the bacterium is capnophilic and produces succinate, further explaining a microbiological basis for lower methane emissions from macropodids. This knowledge also provides new strategic targets for redirecting fermentation and reducing methane production in livestock.. ...

Breeding in tree kangaroos is also quite different.. Land-based kangaroos usually fall pregnant within three days of giving birth. The embryo divides to the blastula stage, which is about 80-110 cells, which then sits on the uterine wall until a hormonal signal from the mother (usually prompted by rainfall) causes the blastula to start diving again and become implanted. Then, 18 to 35 days later, the immature, baked bean size joey is born and continues to develop attached to a teat in the pouch for the next few months. This method allows land-based kangaroos to breed rapidly to take advantage of favourable conditions.. Breeding is more leisurely for tree kangaroos, with only one joey born each year.. They are not gregarious animals, living in individual territories rather than in mobs like land-based species (although in good quality lowland territory, a single male Lumholtzs tree kangaroo shares territory with about six females), and come together only to mate.. Gillanders notes that males, ...

Wallaby, any of a number of small and medium-sized kangaroos of the genus Macropus and allied genera. The large wallabies, or brush kangaroos, are more brightly colored and are smaller than the typical, gray kangaroo. They live for the most part in the open grasslands, where they feed at night and rest in the day in the dense scrub. The best-known of the medium-sized group are the rock wallaby and nail-tailed kangaroo. The former, living in rocky regions, have as specialized a foot structure as do the large kangaroos. Perhaps the most beautiful kangaroo is the latter, the small, graceful, nail-tailed wallaby, which lives in semi-arid country. It is highly specialized in foot and tooth structure and possesses a horny growth resembling a nail on the end of its tail. The smallest of the wallabies, about the size of rabbits, include the paddymelon and the hare wallaby. The fur, especially of the larger species, is much used ...

On Australian semiarid floodplains, large herbivores such as kangaroos have a role in the cycling of energy (carbon) through the mechanism of feeding and defaecation of vegetative material. The degree to which kangaroos are vectors of energy within this system is not fully understood. This study describes the stable carbon isotope signature of floodplain plants and kangaroo scats at two close study sites. Kangaroos were found to deposit scats that mirrored the forage composition at each particular feeding site. Scats were 3.94‰ higher in δ13C values at the site where C4 grasses were available, indicating that this grass contributed ~25-30% of the diet of these kangaroos. The difference in diet due to the relative availability of C3 and C4 forage, detectable in the carbon stable isotope signature of scats, is used to demonstrate that kangaroos are recycling and redistributing energy locally, rather than transporting it more broadly across the floodplain. © 2010, CSIRO ...

good hearing and can move their ears all around to make sure that they are able to hear sounds from all directions. Kangaroo are social animals that travel in groups called mobs that may range from 3 kangaroos up to 100. The male kangaroo is called a buck, boomer, or an old man. The female kangaroo is called a doe or a flyer. A baby kangaroo is called a joey. Female kangaroo give birth to one baby at a time. The gestation time, which means the time that a female kangaroo is pregnant is around 30 days. Newborns usually weigh around 0.03 ounces, and as soon as they are born crawl up into the mothers pouch in which they stay for around 9 months or longer. A female kangaroo can have up to three children at a time. They can have one that just got out of the pouch, one that is in the pouch, and one that is in the womb. However, since female kangaroos do not carry their babies for very long in the womb, female kangaroos have the ability to pause the pregnancy to make sure that the newborn kangaroo ...

Kangaroos and wallabies have large, elastic tendons in their hind legs. They store elastic strain energy in the tendons of their large hind legs, providing most of the energy required for each hop by the spring action of the tendons rather than by any muscular effort.[42] This is true in all animal species which have muscles connected to their skeletons through elastic elements such as tendons, but the effect is more pronounced in kangaroos. There is also a link between the hopping action and breathing: as the feet leave the ground, air is expelled from the lungs; bringing the feet forward ready for landing refills the lungs, providing further energy efficiency. Studies of kangaroos and wallabies have demonstrated, beyond the minimum energy expenditure required to hop at all, increased speed requires very little extra effort (much less than the same speed increase in, say, a horse, dog or human), and the extra energy is required to carry extra weight. For kangaroos, the key benefit of hopping is ...
Well, the other day we heard another word. Whether this is Bennetts second word or his first *real* word, he surprised us the other day when he saw my polka dotted sweater. It was so funny to see him when he realized what my polk dots looked like. His eyes got really big and he began to say this new word over and over! I couldnt resist pulling out the camera and asking him to say the word over and over for documentation sake ...
Theres something truly spectacular about Bennetts pairing with regional Mexican icon Vicente Fernández, Both men are in fine form on Return to Me/Regresa a Mi, backed by gently strumming guitars. Fernández, who sounds on the verge of tears, announced his retirement earlier this year, which gives the song added poignancy. Pop diva Thalia exudes warmth and delicacy on The Way You Look Tonight; and Christina Aguilera is a zippy foil on Steppin Out With My Baby, sung in English. Better are the more experienced voices of Chayanne on The Best Is Yet to Come; actor/singer Dani Martin on Are You Havin Any Fun? and former Los Fabulosos Cadillacs singer Vicentico on Cold, Cold Heart, which soars on a lovely, lilting arrangement.
All animals experience life history events during development that have important consequences for physiology, activity and behaviour. Inevitably, such events also have important consequences for anatomy. For instance, birth in placental mammals necessitates a shift from placental to pulmonary gas exchange, which requires significant cardiovascular remodelling so that the left and right ventricles can transform from working in-parallel at similar pressures, to working in-series at vastly different pressures owing to different resistances of the systemic and pulmonary circuits (Stopfkuchen, 1987). This event is reflected in allometric studies of heart mass growth, with placental mammals tending to show different scaling exponents before and after parturition (Hirokawa, 1972; Mitchell and Skinner, 2009).. In marsupial mammals, cardiovascular remodelling also takes place at birth, but this happens much earlier in development than it does in placental mammals (Runciman et al., 1995). While birth in ...

Bennetts ANC today was 825 from 420 last week! His WBC were 1.5 from 1.2 and neutrophils were 55 from 35. We are sure thankful that it went up! It needed to be 750 to continue on his chemo treatment. He will start back tonight taking his daily 6mp chemo pills.. Hemoglobin went up to 10.8 from 10.0 and platelets went up to 158 from 108. Glad to see both of those getting closer to a normal range before he starts chemo again. I gave blood today for our local blood drive at our hospital. They check hemoglobin now to get your iron percentage. My hemoglobin was 14.7. I thought this was interesting of how low Bennetts really is compared to a normal person. Well maybe not normal, LOL Normal hemoglobin range is 12 to 16.. Bennetts cough, congestion and running is nose is so much better. The cough syrup really worked well that his pediatrician prescribed last week.. Since he started the maintenance phase in April, He has been in the hospital every other month for a fever or low counts. Anytime before ...

Background X-linked alpha thalassemia, mental retardation syndrome in individuals is a uncommon recessive disorder caused by mutations in the em ATRX /em gene. of both varieties. In testes, em ATRY /em manifestation was recognized in the Sertoli cells, germ cells and some interstitial cells. In the developing ovaries, em ATRX /em was initially restricted to the germ cells, KW-6002 ic50 but was present KW-6002 ic50 in the granulosa cells of mature Rabbit polyclonal to ABCA6 ovaries from the primary follicle stage onwards and in the corpus luteum. em ATRX /em mRNA manifestation was also examined outside the gonad in both mouse and tammar wallaby KW-6002 ic50 whole embryos. em ATRX /em was recognized in the developing limbs, craniofacial elements, neural tissues, tail and phallus. These sites correspond with developmental deficiencies displayed by ATR-X individuals. Conclusions There is a complex expression pattern throughout development in both mammals, consistent with many of the observed ATR-X ...

Go on a date with your husband. Do not neglect your life because of what is happening in the NICU. Marriages becomed strained during tough times, especially when moms tend to shut out everything else in life that is not NICU related. Nurses are the most expensive babysitters in the world, and you arent paying for them, insurance is. We tried to go out on a date once a week with both of our preemie babies. We would go out to dinner, talk about us, try to not focus so much on the baby and then at the end of the date we would stop by the NICU, kangaroo or fight over who gets to kangaroo. This experience can either make your marriage stronger, or break it. Remember that you have a husband who is going through the same stresses and fears that you are going through, he just may show it differently. I also like the 2 visits a day instead of being there all of the time. I would only go for a few hours each visit, kangaroo, sing, read, or just sit and watch them sleep.
