Splenomegaly and reticulocytosis caused by Babesia microti infections in natural populations of the montane vole, Microtus montanus.
TLDR
A survey for Babesia microti in rodents was conducted at six sites within Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming andSplenomegaly and reticulocytosis were significant parameters associated with babesiosis while decreased hematocrit was not.
EFFECTS OF NUTRITION AND PHOTOPERIOD ON REPRODUCTIVE PHYSIOLOGY OF MICROTUS MONTANUS.
TLDR
Diet and photoperiod interact in their influence on reproductive physiology (G-18 was the most productive group, D-6 the least productive) and "Plant estrogens" are tentatively postulated as the active principle.
Reproductive responses of Microtus montanus to plants and plant extracts in the diet.
Breeding experiments with Microtus montanus indicate that small dietary supplements of either sprouted wheat or acetone-ether extracts of sprouted wheat elicited improved reproductive performance.
Phenotypic plasticity of the montane vole (Microtus montanus) in unpredictable environments
From 1987 to 1989, the cohort dynamics of Microtus montanus populations were studied at two montane meadow sites approximately 160 km apart, in northwestern Wyoming. The 1987 and 1988 breeding
Weight of the Spleen, Adrenals and Gonads during a Chronic Trypanosoma brucei gambiense Infection of Laboratory-reared Microtus montanus
TLDR
The relationship between the size of the spleen and adrenals is discussed and it is suggested that parasite stress could be distinguished from other forms of stress in natural populations of Microtus.
Comparison of Organ Weights of Wild and Laboratory Microtus montanus infected with Trypanosoma brucei gambiense
TLDR
The hypothesis that splenomegaly in Microtus montanus is caused by a parasitic infection is supported, and therefore, thatsplenomeGaly can be used as a survey marker to determine the extent of parasitism in field populations.
Hereditary hairlessness in the montane vole.
Reproduction and Growth for Two Species of Grasshopper Mice (Onychomys) in the Laboratory
TLDR
A correlation was suggested between the onset of sexual maturity and the beginning of a plateau in growth rate, and significant sexual dimorphism in body weight and tail length was observed in the postpuberal period in both species.
The Flea, Megabothris abantis: An Invertebrate Host of Hepatozoon sp. and a Likely Definitive Host in Hepatozoon Infections of the Montane Vole, Microtus montanus
TLDR
It is concluded that M. abantis is an invertebrate host of Hepatozoon sp.
