Structures of the hyoid apparatus, the pharynx and their topographical positions in the lion, tiger, jaguar, cheetah and domestic cat were described in order to determine morphological differences between species or subfamilies of the Felidae. In the lion, tiger and jaguar (species of the subfamily Pantherinae) the Epihyoideum is an elastic ligament lying… (More)
A database of apparently benign copy number variants (bCNVs) detected by a Spectral Genomics Inc./PerkinElmer BAC array platform has been maintained through the University of Utah Comparative Genomic Hybridization laboratory since 2005. The target population for this database represents 1,275 patients with abnormal phenotypes, primarily children referred… (More)
This paper analyses purring in a cheetah and a domestic cat from an acoustic point of view. The results are discussed in the light of previously published studies.
The population of eels in the Elbe estuary showed a high rate of affliction with epidermal papillomas. Distinct seasonal fluctuations were observed in the frequency of occurrence and tumor size. In spring and autumn, the frequency was low, and the tumors were relatively small. In summer, the tumors reached a maximum in both frequency and size. A distinct… (More)
East-African mountain forest species often occur in small and isolated populations, whereas species inhabiting the dry lowland savannahs exist in large and interconnected population networks. Taxa with closely related highland and lowland species, such as the East-African White-eye birds, allow testing for the potential effects of the two contrasting… (More)
Pathogen identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) should be available as soon as possible for patients with bloodstream infections. We investigated whether a lysis-centrifugation (LC) blood culture (BC) method, combined with matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) identification and… (More)
The cheetah ranks among the more vocal felids, and is above all a prominent purrer. However, the cheetah also produces a wide variety of other sounds, and this paper takes a closer look at a category of sounds produced by wild cheetahs, agonistic vocalizations, that can be divided into moaning, growling, hissing and spitting sounds.
This paper reports results from a comparative analysis of purring in four tame cheetahs. The results exhibited individual variation for relative phase duration and number of cycles per phase, while egressive phases were louder and had higher fundamental frequency in all four cheetahs.
This paper describes the collection of lion roar data at two different locations, an outdoor setting at Antelope Park in Zimbabwe and an indoor setting at Parken Zoo in Sweden. Preliminary analyses of spectrographic and waveform data are provided.
A global epidemiological study on the frequency of skin papillomas among various flatfish species (Pleuronectids), papillomas of eels and the virus induced lymphocystis disease has revealed particular distribution patterns. Skin papillomas are prevalent among at least 20 flatfish species of the northern Pacific Ocean, Bering Sea, Sea of Okhotsk, and Japan… (More)
