Moose (Alces alces) found dead (FD) and hunter-killed (HK) in 1995 on the north slope of Alaska (USA) in the Colville River Drainage were evaluated for heavy metal and mineral status. Compared to previous reports for moose and domestic cattle, and data presented here from Alaska moose outside the Colville River area, levels of Cu were determined to be low(More)
Determining where, when and how much animals eat is fundamental to understanding their ecology. We developed a technique to identify a prey capture signature for little penguins from accelerometry, in order to quantify food intake remotely. We categorised behaviour of captive penguins from HD video and matched this to time-series data from back-mounted(More)
Eight paediatric patients undergoing major surgery for correction of scoliosis who were treated postoperatively with hypotonic saline and 5% dextrose have been studied. Plasma sodium, renin and aldosterone, and urine volume, sodium and osmolality were measured. These patients had an impaired ability to excrete a sodium-free water load. In the first 60 h(More)

Immunoreactive proteoglycans (iPGs) and sulphated glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) were assayed in synovial fluid obtained from 22 patients with osteoarthritis (OA), 21 with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), 13 with gout, and five with Reiter's syndrome. A strong positive linear correlation was observed between concentrations of sulphated GAGs and iPGs in RA (r = 0.95)(More)
Two cases of rapidly progressive destructive shoulder arthropathy are described. Both patients were elderly women with generalized osteoarthropathy who had used forearm crutches for walking. Their shoulder disease was characterized by large, relatively painless effusions, low numbers of infiltrating leukocytes, biopsy evidence of mild inflammation, and(More)
AIM To assess the MRI findings of musculoskeletal lymphoma primarily presenting clinically as a bone lesion or soft tissue mass. METHODS Magnetic resonance imaging of 23 cases of musculoskeletal lymphoma were retrospectively reviewed. Features assessed included tumour location, morphology, signal intensity (SI) characteristics, cortical destruction,(More)
Studies of physiology can provide important insight into how animals are coping with challenges in their environment and can signal the potential effects of exposure to human activity in both the short and long term. In this study, we measured the physiological and behavioural response of little penguins (Eudyptula minor) that were naïve to human activity(More)
