TLDR
As one of the part of book categories, butterflies of north america always becomes the most wanted book. Expand
Effects of management and climate on elk brucellosis in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
TLDR
Milder winters and/or management strategies that reduce the length of the feeding season may reduce the seroprevalence of brucellosis in the elk populations of the southern GYE. Expand
STATUS OF BRUCELLOSIS IN FREE-RANGING ELK AND BISON IN WYOMING
TLDR
In comparison to elk, bison had a higher incidence of brucellosis, and none of the 1,930 male and female elk sampled from 1991 to 2008 in herd units distant from feedgrounds in Wyoming, USA, demonstrated exposure to B. abortus. Expand
Probable causes of increasing brucellosis in free-ranging elk of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
TLDR
The data suggest that enhanced elk-to-elk transmission in free-ranging populations may be occurring due to larger winter elk aggregations, and agency-landowner hunting access partnerships and the protection of large predators are two management strategies that may be used to target high ungulate densities in private refuges and reduce the current and future burden of disease. Expand
EFFECTS OF MANAGEMENT, BEHAVIOR, AND SCAVENGING ON RISK OF BRUCELLOSIS TRANSMISSION IN ELK OF WESTERN WYOMING
TLDR
Reduction of elk density and time attending feedgrounds, particularly on Feedlines; and protection of scavengers on and adjacent to feedgrounds would likely reduce intraspecific transmission risk of brucellosis are suggested. Expand
Genomics reveals historic and contemporary transmission dynamics of a bacterial disease among wildlife and livestock
TLDR
The results support the notion that free-ranging elk are currently a self-sustaining brucellosis reservoir and the source of livestock infections, and that control measures in bison are unlikely to affect the dynamics of unrelated strains circulating in nearby elk populations. Expand
Mapping Brucellosis Increases Relative to Elk Density Using Hierarchical Bayesian Models
TLDR
This study applies hierarchical Bayesian methods to a 19-year dataset of over 6400 brucellosis tests of adult female elk in northwestern Wyoming to show how the dynamics of host populations can affect their ability to serve as disease reservoirs. Expand
A PLAGUE EPIZOOTIC IN THE BLACK-TAILED PRAIRIE DOG (CYNOMYS LUDOVICIANUS)
TLDR
Black-tailed prairie dogs are capable of surviving a plague epizootic and reorganizing into apparently functional coteries, and may be critical in the repopulation of plague-decimated colonies and, ultimately, the evolution of plague resistance. Expand
BRUCELLA ABORTUSSTRAIN RB51 VACCINATION IN ELK II. FAILURE OF HIGH DOSAGE TO PREVENT ABORTION
TLDR
Based on the results of this and other studies, the use of strain RB51 to prevent abortion in elk cannot be recommended. Expand
Brucellosis in Captive Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep (Ovis canadensis) Caused by Brucella abortus Biovar 4
TLDR
Nine captive adult Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) contracted brucellosis caused by Brucella abortus biovar 4 as a result of natural exposure to an aborted elk (Cervus elaphus) fetus, providing evidence that bighORN sheep develop many of the manifestations ascribed to this disease.
