An epidemiological study of canine filarioses in north-west Italy: What has changed in 25 years?
A field survey aimed at updating knowledge of the distribution and prevalence of filarial infections in the Piedmont region was undertaken. Blood samples were collected from 2628 dogs (10–15 dogs/100Expand

Descriptive epidemiology of a scabies epidemic in chamois in the Dolomite Alps, Italy
In 1995, the hitherto Sarcoptes-free alpine chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra) of the Dolomite Alps (Italy) were affected by scabies for the first time after the spread of the disease from a neighbouringExpand

The epizootiology of sarcoptic mange in chamois, Rupicapra rupicapra, from the Italian eastern Alps.
Sarcoptic mange is the most severe infection in chamois in the Eastern Alps. This study analyses and discusses data from two mange foci in the Foresta Demaniale di Tarvisio (NE Italy). The firstExpand

Immobilising free-ranging Alpine chamois with xylazine, reversed with atipamezole
Between 1996 and 2005, 215 free-ranging Alpine chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra) were immobilised with xylazine hydrochloride. The 110 male and 105 female animals received a mean (sd) dose of 2·5 (0·6)Expand

Mitochondrial DNA and microsatellite markers evidence a different pattern of hybridization in red-legged partridge (Alectoris rufa) populations from NW Italy
Genetic introgression with exotic genomes represents a major conservation concern for the red-legged partridge (Alectoris rufa, Phasianidae). In particular, massive releases of chukar partridgesExpand

Disentangling the effects of recombination, selection, and demography on the genetic variation at a major histocompatibility complex class II gene in the alpine chamois.
The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) harbours some of the most polymorphic loci in vertebrate genomes. MHC genes are thought to be subject to some form of balancing selection, most likelyExpand

Anaesthesia of free-ranging Northern chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra) with xylazine/ketamine and reversal with atipamezole
One-hundred and fifty-five free-ranging Northern chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra) were anaesthetised in the course of a restocking programme using xylazine plus ketamine. Mean ± SD dosages for xylazineExpand

Population genetic structure of Alpine chamois (Rupicapra r. rupicapra) in the Italian Alps
Analysis of the genetic diversity of the Alpine chamois in Italy was conducted using a pool of 26 microsatellite loci. A total of 209 animals were analyzed, representing six geographical populationsExpand
