In 1982, 29 7-day-old American kestrel (Falco sparverius) chicks from captive stock were randomly assigned to one of three dietary regimens: (1) 10 birds were fed daily with cockerel mash (0 ppm of F-: control birds); (2) 10 birds were fed daily with cockerel mash containing 1,120 ppm of F-; (3) 9 birds were fed daily with cockerel mash containing 2,240 ppm(More)
The body composition of young American kestrels (Falco sparverius) hand-fed either a protein-rich diet (day-old cockerels Gallus domesticus) or a fat-rich diet (laboratory mice Mus musculus) was determined one day after fledging. Mouse-fed fledglings (n = 16) had significantly greater fat deposits than cockerel-fed birds (n = 15), while the crude protein(More)

Histological studies upon the salivary glands of ten species of triatomine bugs were performed looking for their number and structural organization in different genera. It was possible to evaluate the celular epithelium type of each gland, as well as the merocrine and apocrine secretions of the glands. Secretion run until the hilo and after to salivary pump(More)
Seventy captive-bred American kestrels (Falco sparverius) were hand-reared on diets of either day-old cockerels (Gallus domesticus) (n = 38) or laboratory mice (Mus musculus) (n = 32) at meal frequencies of 4 or 6 times per day. Ad libitum food was provided in all meals. A proximate analysis of the two diets was performed and showed that cockerels when(More)
The gregarine Cephaloidophora communis was observed for the first time in Brazil in the barnacles Euraphia rhyzophorae collected in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, between 1990 and 1996. Histological studies showed growth phases of the parasite in specific parts of the digestive system. The intracellular forms occurred in the vacuoles of the(More)
