Zoonotic tuberculosis due to Mycobacterium bovis in developing countries.
TLDR
This work reviews available information on zoonotic TB in developing countries, analyze risk factors that may play a role in the disease, review recent WHO activities, and recommend actions to assess the magnitude of the problem and control the disease in humans and animals.
Post‐war changes in arable farming and biodiversity in Great Britain
Summary 1. Agriculture represents the dominant land use throughout much of western Europe, and a significant part of European biodiversity is associated with this habitat. We attempted to quantify
Prevalence and severity of lameness in lactating dairy cows in a sample of Minnesota and Wisconsin herds.
TLDR
An epidemiologic study investigating the prevalence of lameness in lactating dairy cows was performed in 17 dairy herds in Minnesota and Wisconsin, with higher prevalence of clinical lameness found in cows of higher parity.
Emerging Infectious Disease Leads to Rapid Population Declines of Common British Birds
TLDR
The first trichomonosis epidemic reported in the scientific literature to negatively impact populations of free-ranging non-columbiform species is reported, and levels of mortality and decline due to an emerging infectious disease are unprecedented in British wild bird populations.
Travelling through a warming world: climate change and migratory species.
TLDR
This multi- taxon review shows that the characteristics of species that undertake such movements appear to make them particularly vulnerable to detrimental impacts of climate change, and conservation strategies for migrants will require substantial shifts in site designation policies, flexibility of management strategies and the integration of forward planning.
Annual and seasonal trends in the use of garden feeders by birds in winter
TLDR
As the number of feeding stations had increased over time the response of birds to the greater food availability in gardens may have been responsible for the widespread increases in occurrence of several species.
Weather-dependent survival: implications of climate change for passerine population processes
TLDR
Climate influences on food availability may provide the mechanism by which populations will alter under changed climatic conditions, though the presence of density dependence may reduce the impact of this on long-term population trajectories.
Unravelling the migration and moult strategies of a long-distance migrant using stable isotopes: Red Knot Calidris canutus movements in the Americas
TLDR
It is shown that stable isotopes can be used to infer migratory strategies of coastal-feeding shorebirds and provides the basis for identifying the moult strategy and wintering areas of birds passing through Delaware Bay.
Molecular epidemiology of Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale
TLDR
The results of this analysis demonstrate that the majority of O. rhinotracheale isolates recovered from domesticated poultry throughout the world are represented by a small group of closely related clones and suggest that the bacterium was recently introduced to domesticatedoultry from wild bird populations.
