Hematologic and biochemical reference ranges for two captive populations of northern bald ibises (Geronticus eremita) were compared. The first consisted of 11 birds at an in-situ breeding colony in Bireçik, southern Turkey. The second consisted of 27 birds housed at the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust in Jersey, British Channel Isles (UK). Blood samples were collected in February 1992 by basilic venipuncture under manual restraint. Bireçik birds had higher packed cell volumes and red blood…

TLDR
A retrospective study of blood samples from captive California condors housed at the San Diego Wild Animal Park assessed the samples by sex and age of condor to determine serum biochemical and hematologic reference ranges, including lead and zinc levels.
Hematologic and Biochemical Reference Ranges for the Kakapo (Strigops habroptilus): Generation and Interpretation in a Field-based Wildlife Recovery Program
TLDR
The results of this study highlight the limitations of using reference values in wildlife medicine, where ideal collection and handling of samples in field studies may be compromised and prevent accurate interpretation of test results.
Hematology and Blood Chemistry Reference Values of Captive Adult Black-Faced Ibis (Theristicus melanopis melanopis)
TLDR
This is the first report of the hematology references values for the black-faced ibis showing differences to other closely related species, but showed higher values for white blood cells, heterophils, monocytes and heterophil-lymphocyte ratio, but lower values for basophils and eosinophils.
Blood values of Bald Ibis (Geronticus eremita) in captivity: comparative ranges and variability with age, sex and physical condition
TLDR
Haematocrit and blood chemistry values for individuals belonging to a captive population of the Bald Ibis are reported, and their variability with respect to age, sex, and physical condition of the animals are analyzed.
Response of the haematocrit to body condition changes in Northern Bald Ibis Geronticus eremita.
TLDR
The conclusion was that the haematocrit is sensitive to variations in body condition since it responds to mass-loss processes corresponding to phases of mobilization of fat reserves, a situation prior to the mobilization of muscle proteins when there is a manifest deterioration of the individual's aspect.
HEMATOLOGIC, PROTEIN ELECTROPHORESIS, BIOCHEMISTRY, AND CHOLINESTERASE VALUES OF FREE-LIVING BLACK STORK NESTLINGS (CICONIA NIGRA)
TLDR
Packed cellVolume, butyrylcholinesterase, aspartate aminotransferase, creatine kinase, and creatinine increased with age, whereas albumin, mean cell volume, calcium, phosphorus, cholesterol, and total solids decreased with age.
THE EFFECTS OF MIGRATORY FLIGHT ON HEMATOLOGIC PARAMETERS IN NORTHERN BALD IBISES (GERONTICUS EREMITA)
TLDR
The hematologic changes postflight in NBIs were largely consistent with those of other birds, but they differed from humans and mammals postexercise mainly in the levels of tWBC, heterophils (matching neutrophils in mammals), and lymphocytes.
Excretion patterns of coccidian oocysts and nematode eggs during the reproductive season in Northern Bald Ibis (Geronticus eremita)
TLDR
It is found that the frequency of excretion of parasites’ oocysts and eggs tended to increase with ambient temperature, and social behaviour, physiology and parasite burden are linked in a complex and context-dependent manner.

The pathophysiology of survival in harsh environments
TLDR
The results show that an individual’s health before facing an environmental challenge and the way it regulates its RMR influences its ability to maintain homeostasis when conditions become more taxing.

HEMATOLOGICAL AND PLASMA BIOCHEMICAL REFERENCE INTERVALS IN YOUNG WHITE STORKS
TLDR
Hematological and plasma chemistry parameters were measured in 129 juvenile white storks, either wild or captive bred, April to June 1994 and differences between captive and wild birds were not notable.
Avian Clinical Biochemistry
TLDR
This chapter begins with discussing how blood samples of birds can be collected in the most efficient way and elaborates the biochemistry of plasma proteins, renal function, and hepatobiliary disease in birds.
Disorders of avian leukocytes
TLDR
The poultry immunological system is weakened because of the intensive development grow of poultry and further research should be directed at strengthening the immune system function, which may also enhance the productivity and bird health.
2000 IUCN red list of threatened species
TLDR
The 2000 Red List combines animals and plants into a single list containing assessments of more that 18,000 taxa and there has been a significant increase in the number of species assessments.

The water of the body is distributed into intracellular and extracellular compartments. The latter may be partitioned into plasma and interstitial fluids.
