Ketamine and xylazine were combined to provide anesthesia for coyotes. The drugs were tested in eight adult animals divided equally by sex. A dosage combining 5.5 mg./kg. of each drug provided effective anesthesia for periods from 45 to 60 min.
We present a specification of the optimization of KLM's flight schedule in this paper using object-oriented simulation services on top of the Java-based distributed simulation environment DSOL. The paper shows the added value of a service-based architecture for linking the simulation of KLM's operations, the operational modules for day-to-day flight… (More)
Rodent housing and nesting units were constructed from acrylic and provided with concrete tops. These hexagonal units, placed in a wooded field, were inhabited by deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus). The use of the field housing units provided an effective method for observing free-ranging wild rodents.
