Genetic analysis of sable (Martes zibellina) and pine marten (M. martes) populations in sympatric part of distribution area in the northern Urals
A high degree of reciprocal introgression of the sable and pine marten mtDNA in the northern Urals suggests that their interspecific hybridization is common in the sympatric zone.
Activity of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenals axis in the Siberian tiger (Panthera tigris altaica) in captivity and in the wild, and its dynamics throughout the year
In the wild, this level of HPA was significantly higher, reaching the maximum from November to January, which can be related with an unfavorable influence on tigers in low temperatures and deep snow cover.
Contrasting evolutionary history of hedgehogs and gymnures (Mammalia: Erinaceomorpha) as inferred from a multigene study
The first multilocus analysis of phylogenetic relationships among genera of Erinaceidae and estimated the split times between and within the two subfamilies is performed, producing a well-resolved molecular phylogeny.
Hearing threshold shifts and recovery after noise exposure in beluga whales, Delphinapterus leucas
The highest TTS with the longest recovery duration was produced by noises of lower frequencies, and appeared at a test frequency of +0.5 octave, while at higher noise frequencies, the TTS decreased.
Revision of the genus Leopoldamys (Rodentia, Muridae) as inferred from morphological and molecular data, with a special emphasis on the species composition in continental Indochina.
A revision of the genus Leopoldamys is presented, and both the species composition and distribution in Indochina and Sundaic regions is reinvestigated, and the phylogenetic analyses of five basal and 16 secondary monophyletic phylogenetic lineages were identified.
Polymorphism of the mitochondrial DNA control region in the population of raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides Gray, 1834) introduced into the Upper Volga basin
Analysis of sequences (n = 30) of a hypervariable segment (599 bp) of the mtDNA control region in raccoon dog Nyctereutes procyonoides Gray, 1834, introduced into the Upper Volga basin, revealed a
Coprology of Panthera tigris altaica and Felis bengalensis euptilurus From the Russian Far East
This fecal investigation allowed us to isolate and identify several developmental stages of gastrointestinal, hepatic, and respiratory parasites in Siberian tiger and Amur cat feces.
Home range structure and space use of a female Amur leopard, Panthera pardus orientalis (Carnivora, Felidae)
The size of its home range, the time of parturition, the location of dens, and hunting sites for large prey are estimated from the satellite GPS-collar of Amur leopard female.
Spatially explicit capture-recapture method (SECR, SPACECAP): A new approach to determination of the Amur tiger (Panthera tigris altaica) population density by means of camera-traps
The method of density determination in the Amur tiger population is tested using the capture recapture principle, which takes into account spatial relationships between animal record ings (space capture–recapture, SECR) using the SPACECAP software.
