We tested the hypothesis that birds can rapidly change the conductance of water vapor at the skin surface in response to a changing need for evaporative heat loss. Mourning doves (Zenaida macroura) were placed in a two-compartment chamber separating the head from the rest of the body. The rate of cutaneous evaporation was measured in response to dry ventilatory inflow at three ambient temperatures and in response to vapor-saturated ventilatory inflow at two ambient temperatures. At 35 degrees C, cutaneous evaporation increased by 72 % when evaporative water loss from the mouth was prevented, but no increase was observed at 45 degrees C. For both dry and vapor-saturated treatments, cutaneous evaporation increased significantly with increased ambient temperature. Changes in skin temperature made only a minor contribution to any observed increase in cutaneous evaporation. This indicates that Z. macroura can effect rapid adjustment of evaporative conductance at the skin in response to acute change ...

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), ...
Tasmanian devils have been considered livestock predators. In reality, these marsupials take most of their large prey, such as wombats, wallabies, sheep, and rabbits, in the form of carrion. Tasmanian devils are efficient scavengers, eating even bones and fur. Tasmanian devils may have depended on carrion left from Tasmanian wolf kills in historical times. Other food items, such as insects, insect larvae, snakes, and small amounts of vegetation, are taken when encountered. Tasmanian devils forage in a slow, lumbering manner, using their sense of smell to find food at night. They are famous for their rowdy communal feeding, which is accompanied by aggression and loud vocalisations ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - A phylogeny and timescale for the living genera of kangaroos and kin (Macropodiformes. T2 - Marsupialia) based on nuclear DNA sequences. AU - Meredith, Robert W.. AU - Westerman, Michael. AU - Springer, Mark S.. PY - 2008/12/1. Y1 - 2008/12/1. N2 - Kangaroos and kin (Macropodiformes) are the most conspicuous elements of the Australasian marsupial fauna. The approximately 70 living species can be divided into three families: (1) Hypsiprymnodontidae (the musky rat kangaroo); (2) Potoroidae (potoroos and bettongs); and (3) Macropodidae (larger kangaroos, wallabies, banded hare wallaby and pademelons). Here we examine macropodiform relationships using protein-coding portions of the ApoB, BRCA1, IRBP, Rag1 and vWF genes via maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods. We estimate times of divergence using two different relaxed molecular clock methods to present a timescale for macropodiform evolution and reconstruct ancestral states for grades of dental organisation. We ...

Correct identification of species forms the basis of all biological studies from individual genetic variation to population genetics, stock assessments and understanding whole ecosystems. This often relies on skilled taxonomists or molecular techniques to identify species, the time and cost of which can be prohibitive to many research opportunities. High resolution melt (HRM) analysis offers a potential quick and cost effective method of genetic screening and an alternative to DNA sequencing to confirm species identity. This technique was successfully tested for its ability to discriminate between four genetically similar species of Antarctic fish, genus Macrourus, where morphological identification can be problematic due to overlapping characteristics. The technique was shown to be fast, robust and reliable even with samples where DNA yield was of poor quality and quantity. There is great scope for the application of this technique in biological research, fisheries management and conservation ...
In light of this version of history, evolutionists expect Australian marsupial species to be genetically closer to one another than to any other species on Earth. The biological basis for this view is straightforward. At conception, when sperm meets egg, each cell contributes a copy of its DNA to the new life, but the process of transmission happens imperfectly, and consequently, genetic errors occur. Thus, each generation grows more genetically distant from previous generations as each new fertilization event contributes more genetic mistakes to the lineage. Therefore, if two individuals share a recent common ancestor, they will possess fewer genetic differences.. Since evolutionists postulate that marsupials share their nearest kinship with other marsupials, they expect genetics to clearly reflect this ancestry. For example, they would predict wombats to be genetically closer to kangaroos and marsupial moles than to cane rats or any other rodents. They would also anticipate a closer genetic ...

We cant as a responsible nation let mange continue its destruction of the wombat population.. Tasmanai Environment Minister Matthew Groom in March this year announced that $100,000 would be spent to bolster statewide wombat monitoring, research into the disease and financial help for community groups actively involved in efforts to treat infected wombats.. Treating wombats with early stages of clinical signs will lead to complete resolution of mange, and the wombat will be healthy and not more likely to become re-infested, probably less so.. The GOOD NEWS is that Tasmanias wombats appear to be winning the battle against a disease that almost wiped out the entire population in a northern national park.. Mange is still in the states wombat populations but 90 per cent of the animals appear healthy, ongoing monitoring shows. An outbreak of the disease that hit the national park in 2010 has been slowly wiping out the wombat population.. Hundreds of wombats have been seen in one night at other ...
The citrate cycle (TCA cycle, Krebs cycle) is an important aerobic pathway for the final steps of the oxidation of carbohydrates and fatty acids. The cycle starts with acetyl-CoA, the activated form of acetate, derived from glycolysis and pyruvate oxidation for carbohydrates and from beta oxidation of fatty acids. The two-carbon acetyl group in acetyl-CoA is transferred to the four-carbon compound of oxaloacetate to form the six-carbon compound of citrate. In a series of reactions two carbons in citrate are oxidized to CO2 and the reaction pathway supplies NADH for use in the oxidative phosphorylation and other metabolic processes. The pathway also supplies important precursor metabolites including 2-oxoglutarate. At the end of the cycle the remaining four-carbon part is transformed back to oxaloacetate. According to the genome sequence data, many organisms seem to lack genes for the full cycle [MD:M00009], but contain genes for specific segments [MD:M00010 M00011 ...
The Monito del Monte is the only extant member of its order, the Microbiotheria. This order is itself part of the superorder Australidelphia, which includes Australian Marsupials and the Monito del Monte, whose native habitat are the forests of Chile and Argentina. In other words, the Monito del Monte is more closely related to the Marsupials of Australia than to those of the New World.. ...
The numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus), also known as the banded anteater, marsupial anteater, or walpurti, is a marsupial native to Western Australia and recently re-introduced to South Australia. Its diet consists almost exclusively of termites. Once widespread across southern Australia, its range is now restricted to several small colonies, and it is listed as an endangered species. The numbat is an emblem of Western Australia and protected by conservation programs. The numbat genus Myrmecobius is the sole member of the family Myrmecobiidae, one of the four families that make up the order Dasyuromorphia, the Australian marsupial carnivores. The species is not closely related to other extant marsupials; the current arrangement in the order Dasyuromorphia places its monotypic family with the diverse and carnivorous species of Dasyuridae. A closer affinity with the extinct thylacine, contained in the same order, has been proposed.[citation needed] Genetic studies have shown the ancestors of the ...
Marsupials or metatherians are a group of mammals that are distinct in giving birth to young at early stages of development and in having a prolonged investment in lactation. The group consists of nearly 350 extant species, including kangaroos, koala, possums, and their relatives. Marsupials are an old lineage thought to have diverged from early therian mammals some 160 million years ago in the Jurassic, and have a remarkable evolutionary and biogeographical history, with extant species restricted to the Americas, mostly South America, and to Australasia. Although the group has been the subject of decades of phylogenetic research, the marsupial tree of life remains controversial, with most studies focusing on only a fraction of the species diversity within the infraclass. Here we present the first Methaterian species-level phylogeny to include 80% of the extant marsupial species and five nuclear and five mitochondrial markers obtained from Genbank and a recently published retroposon matrix. Our primary
The Dasyurus genus has six species, two of which are found in Papua New Guinea and the other four in Australia. The largest of the genus is the spotted-tailed quoll which is Australias largest marsupial carnivore to be found on the mainland. All species have bold white spots on a grey-grown body but only one has spots on the tail.
This species has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence ,20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend is not known, but the population is not believed to be decreasing sufficiently rapidly to approach the thresholds under the population trend criterion (,30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (,10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be ,10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern ...
Wild Wombat. I have a wombat that has claimed territory in my yard. I live in a residential area in NOWRA South Coast XXXXX. It is growling at my family members and chargin at them when it feels in danger. I have made numerous phone calls to different local organisations but no one feels it is their responsibility to come pick up the wombat. I am at wits end and not sure what to do.. The Wombat Answers:. Im so sad to hear that. Considering that you already contacted different local organizations. Im going to forward your concerns. And will let you know, once they responded. I will give them details regarding the wombat that took territory in your yard. But for the meantime, if the wombat is still there. Just try to stay away from it. Theyre nocturnal and most likely they roam around during the night. They can be gentle too. But its better to stay away, we never know what can trigger it to attack. I understand though, your concerns and the inconvenience that the wombat have caused you and ...
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.
Most people are familiar with the unique animals in the land down under. Australia boasts the largest variety of marsupials on any continent, including kangaroos, koalas, bandicoots, and wombats.. Wombats are a thick-set short legged, tailless, and somewhat badger like burrowing animal. As are all marsupials, they exhibit marvelous evidence for design.. I shall never forget the time on the ICR Australia tour when I took the American tourists to a wildlife sanctuary on Queenslands famous Gold Coast. We all wanted to see the wombat, an animal that has a pouch like the kangaroo and koala. As with other marsupials, the young wombat is born as a fetus about the size of a jelly bean, with well developed forelimbs which enable it to crawl into the mothers pouch where it completes its development. This, in itself, shows the hand of the Creator, God.. The guide began his talk by telling us that the wombat has a very unusual feature. Its pouch opens backwards, not forward, like the kangaroo. It soon ...

Researchers believe the milk of the Tasmanian devil can hold the key to fighting drug-resistant bacteria. This milk builds a strong immune system that protects the joeys from infection and pathogens.
Australian scientists said on Thursday they had made a breakthrough in the fight to save the cancer-hit Tasmanian devil by mapping the species genome for the first time.
We received our first permit and arranged to go to Portee on Saturday, Dec. 8th.. When we arrived there the Conquests had already been at work and had caught one wombat; this animal was in poor condition, his coat was the colour and texture of old hessian and, although a big animal, weighed only 36lbs.. Jack thought this animal was a female so we set out to catch a male. After several hours work we succeeded and set off home with our pair of wombats. The animals were named Elsie and Ernie but when we got home we discovered that Elsie was a male and changed his name to Elvis.. The wombats were brought inside and spoon fed 3 times a day on a mixture of baby cereal, bran, pollard and powdered milk. This mixture later on had Webbs kangaroo pellets added, and later still, chopped lucerne.. Ernie was ill the first week and was treated for pneumonia by our local doctor as there was not a veterinary doctor closer than 100 miles. He recovered O.K. and was given to my brother who also had a permit to ...
