The Alagoas Curassow, Pauxi mitu, is extinct in the wild since 2004, and one of the major challenges for its ex situ management is the introgression of alleles from Razor-billed Curassows, P. tuberosa, which occurred in the captive population without pedigree recordings. Here we describe 10 polymorphic microsatellite loci isolated from a P. tuberosa genomic(More)
The authors analysed 270 human adult skulls of both sexes, in order to demonstrate the fusion of clinoid process of sphenoid. It was verified only 38 cases under several shapes. According to our results obtained, may be concluded: a) the fusion between the anterior and medium clinoid processes occurred in 17 cases (6.27%), being that in 11 cases (4.05%)(More)
The bilaminar zone (BZ) in the human temporomandibular joint (TMJ) of toothed adults (GI) and toothless, elderly humans (GII) were analysed using light and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In both groups the BZ consists of an upper and a lower stratum of connective tissue separated by a vascularized middle region. The superior stratum contains bundles of(More)
The conservation of many endangered taxa relies on hybrid identification, and when hybrids become morphologically indistinguishable from the parental species, the use of molecular markers can assign individual admixture levels. Here, we present the puzzling case of the extinct in the wild Alagoas Curassow (Pauxi mitu), whose captive population descends from(More)
