Expansion of ecotourism-based industries, changes in land-use practices, and escalating competition for resources have increased contact between free-ranging wildlife and humans. Although human presence in wildlife areas may provide an important economic benefit through ecotourism, exposure to human pathogens may represent a health risk for wildlife. This(More)
the World Health Organization standard tourniquet test and a modifi ed tourniquet test in the diagnosis of dengue infec-sakorn S, et al. Causes of acute, undifferen-tiated, febrile illness in rural Thailand: results of a prospective observational study. To the Editor: Emergence of bovine tuberculosis (TB) in wildlife in southern Africa has implications not(More)
Coastal dolphins are regarded as indicators of changes in coastal marine ecosystem health that could impact humans utilizing the marine environment for food or recreation. Necropsy and histology examinations were performed on 35 Indian Ocean bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) and five Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins (Sousa plumbea) incidentally caught in(More)
Variation of the intraruminal papillation pattern with diet quality has been described in many ruminant species, but the use of papillation measures as a proxy for habitat quality and nutritional status of animals has not been evaluated. We compared various measures of body condition (body mass, body condition score, kidney fat index, bone marrow fat index,(More)
An approximately 20-year-old, female Leopard tortoise (Geochelone pardalis pardalis) was presented with dypsnea, wheezing, anorexia and depression. Whole body radiographs revealed generalized diffuse unstructured 'interstitial lung pattern' with thickened pulmonary septae while computed tomography (CT) showed emphysematous lung parenchyma and thickened(More)
This paper investigates demodulation of diieren-tially phase modulated signals DPMS using optimal HMM lters. The optimal HMM lter presented in the paper is computationally of order N 3 per time instant, where N is the number of message symbols. Previously, optimal HMM lters have been of computational order N 4 per time instant. Also, suboptimal HMM lters(More)
An epizootic of flaccid trunk paralysis began in free-ranging Zimbabwean elephants (Loxodonta africana) on the southern shore of Lake Kariba in 1989. It involved a selective neuropathy of peripheral nerves supplying the trunk, with axon and myelin degeneration, muscle atrophy, compensatory hypertrophy, and fine endomyseal fibrosis, without inflammatory(More)
