Attitudes Of South-Central Kentucky Residents Towards Coyotes And Their Management, Andrew T. McQueen, Stephen Sumithran PhD 2024 Eastern Kentucky University

Attitudes Of South-Central Kentucky Residents Towards Coyotes And Their Management, Andrew T. Mcqueen, Stephen Sumithran Phd

Posters-at-the-Capitol

The existence of the coyote in the eastern U.S. is a recent development and the public’s perception of coyotes has been widely studied in urban areas. However, perceptions in rural areas, especially rural Appalachia, have been largely unstudied. It is necessary for wildlife managers to understand the public’s perceptions of coyotes and coyote management when creating management plans. We conducted a public survey in South-central Kentucky to determine perceptions toward coyotes and coyote management methods. The survey contained questions about demographics (age, gender, county of residence, landownership, etc.), perceptions (fears, opinions), knowledge (true/false questions), and preferred management practices (hunting, trapping, …

Conjunctival Hemangiosarcoma In A Female Dog: Case Report, Felipe Gaia De Sousa, Suzane Lilian Beier, José Antônio Da Cruz Neto, Natália Fagundes, Isaac Scherre Lubiana, Alaine Cristina De Andrade

Revista de Medicina Veterinaria

Los hemangiosarcomas son tumores de origen mesenquimatoso, potencialmente deletéreos, asociados a áreas de alta vascularización. La progresión y el crecimiento del tumor están asociados con la capacidad de estos tumores para retener sangre y dar lugar a vasos sanguíneos tortuosos. Estos tumores tienen una gran capacidad metastásica, presentándose a menudo en órganos como el bazo, el hígado y la arteria aorta. Sin embargo, otros sitios pueden verse afectados, aunque con menor frecuencia, como el tercer párpado, la conjuntiva y las regiones cutáneas. El objetivo de este artículo es reportar el caso de una perra de 8 años de edad con …

A Survey Of Proximal Sensilla Associated With Denticle Subrows On Scorpion Pedipalp Fingers (Arachnida: Scorpiones), With Observations On Scorpion Fluorescence, Graeme Lowe, Victor Fet

Euscorpius

Sensilla on the dentate margins of scorpion pedipalp fingers, associated with denticle subrows or terminal denticles, were surveyed by white light, UV fluorescence and scanning electron microscopy. A total of 163 species belonging to 103 genera from 19 families were examined, representing all major phylogenetic lineages in the order. In the majority of species (141/152) with dentition organized into linear subrows of median denticles, a small socketed sensillum with a short shaft was observed at the proximal terminus of each subrow, termed a ‘subrow proximal sensilla’ (SPS). With few exceptions, SPS were non-fluorescent (‘Type N’) in buthids, and fluorescent (‘Type …

Rhipicephalus sanguineus complex is among the most studied hard tick species due to its worldwide distribution and its ability to transmit several pathogens. In this study, new local data and recent global findings were used to reevaluate the evolutionary history and phylogeny of the R. sanguineus complex. Seventy-nine samples of Rhipicephalus sp., which were collected from 32 different localities of Türkiye and one locality from Northern Cyprus, were analyzed using two mitochondrial (mt 16S rDNA, mt 12S rDNA) and one nuclear (ITS2) markers. The findings from phylogenetic trees indicate the presence of a third genetically distinct lineage of R. sanguineus …


The Range Dynamics Of A Cactophilic Drosophila Species Under Climate Change Scenarios, BANU ŞEBNEM ÖNDER, UTKU PERKTAŞ 2024 TÜBİTAK

The Range Dynamics Of A Cactophilic Drosophila Species Under Climate Change Scenarios, Banu Şebnem Önder, Utku Perktaş

Turkish Journal of Zoology

In this study, we evaluated the historical demography of a cactophilic Drosophila species (Drosophila gouveai) based on previously published mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) data ecological niche modelling. We particularly aimed to test the effect of climate change on the historical demography of D. gouveai during the late Quaternary and the future of the species. For this, we also modelled its host cacti species in its distribution range to reach a more robust biogeographic conclusion. Our results indicate that D. gouveai was as sensitive to climate change as its hosts were. This species experienced an almost complete range shift, range contraction after …

Vigilance Behavior Of Common Crane Grus Grus In Flocks During Spring, Summer, And Autumn, Kristina Kondrakova, Alexander Sharikov

Turkish Journal of Zoology

Vigilance is a key behavioral element aimed to detect potential predators or rivals. In this study, we examined the vigilance levels of common cranes that exhibit flocking behavior during the spring, summer, and autumn seasons. We considered the influence of both social (age, presence of offspring, and flock size) and environmental factors (habitat type, time of day, and study period). Parents allocated more time for vigilance than nonparents and juveniles. The alertness of nonparents was lower in flocks of size 51–150 individuals compared to flocks under 50 and over 150 birds. Juveniles increased their vigilance at the end of the …

Can Wildlife Mortality On A Local Road Tell Something General? An Answer From A Protected Area In South-Western Romania, Diana Cupşa, Severus Daniel Covaciu Marcov, Robert Liviu Mihai Rengle, Amalia Raluca Dumbrava, Sára Ferenti, Adriana Petruş Vancea

Turkish Journal of Zoology

Between June 2020 and May 2021, we studied the fauna road mortality on a recently asphalted local road in a protected area in southwestern Romania (Iron Gates Natural Park–IGNP). Despite our expectation of reduced road mortality because of the very low traffic (3.97 cars/hour), numerous animals belonging to a high number of taxa were killed. Animals were killed throughout the entire year, even amphibians in the winter months, which normally should hibernate in that period. Road mortality differences between periods and sectors were obvious. Plant assemblages near the road influence the composition and intensity of road mortality. Diverse habitats near …
