Canis aureus (Carnivore: Canidae)
Abstract: Canis aureus (Linnaeus, 1758), the golden jackal, is a medium-sized, wide spread, terrestrial carnivore. It is 1 of 7 species found in the genus Canis. It ranges from Africa to Europe,
Sistematika porodice: Psi (Canidae, Mammalia)
Porodica: Psi (Canidae) pripada sisavcima iz reda Carnivora (Zvijeri). Evolucija ove porodice zapocela je prije oko 40 mil. god. u kasnom eocenu, u S
Field Report
Intra-guild competition, including kleptoparasitism, can shape a species’ ecology, particularly when competitors commonly occur sympatrically. Here, I describe a series of interspecific interactions
Black-backed jackals (Canis mesomelas) are natural hosts of Babesia rossi, the virulent causative agent of canine babesiosis in sub-Saharan Africa
TLDR
Black-backed jackals are natural hosts of B. rossi, and the observed sequence similarities were confirmed by phylogenetic analyses using neighbour joining and maximum parsimony.
Black-backed jackals (Canis mesomelas) from semi-arid rangelands in South Africa harbour Hepatozoon canis and a Theileria species but apparently not Babesia rossi.
TLDR
Prevalence of TBPs in black-backed jackals from this semi-arid rangeland region was lower than in jackal populations in more mesic regions, adding to the sparse literature and further studies which span landscape uses, climate conditions and seasonality are encouraged.
Diverse diets of the Mio-Pliocene carnivorans of Langebaanweg, South Africa
TLDR
Analysis of the radii-of-curvature and intercuspid notches present in the mandibulardentition of the Mio-Pliocene guild of carnivorans of Langebaanweg, South Africa found that the LBW carnivoran had less sharp premolars than do their modern confamilials - an indication of greater durophagy.
Comparative abundance and ranging behaviour of brown hyaena (Parahyaena brunnea) inside and outside protected areas in South Africa
Global biodiversity is declining at an unprecedented rate, principally as a consequence of increasing human population. Effects of this expansion are exemplified by the extent to which many
A review of Semigenetta (Viverridae, Carnivora) from the Miocene of Eurasia based on material from the hominid locality of Hammerschmiede (Germany)
Abstract The present article offers a detailed review of the taxonomy, distribution and palaeoecology of the genus Semigenetta. The study is based on new craniodental and postcranial remains of the
Completing the cycle: Haemaphysalis elliptica, the vector of Babesia rossi, is the most prevalent tick infesting black-backed jackals (Canis mesomelas), an indigenous reservoir host of B. rossi in South Africa.
TLDR
It is concluded that where its off-host ecological requirements are met, H. elliptica/leachi is the most prevalent tick infesting black-backed jackal population throughout their range.
Morphometric analysis of skull shape reveals unprecedented diversity of African Canidae

The results depict the absence of morphological overlap between L. m.

FREE-LIVING JACKALS (Canis mesomelas) - POTENTIAL RESERVOIR HOSTS FOR Ehrlichia canis IN KENYA 1 2
Using a modified cell culture test, Ehrlichia canis was found in eight of 16 free-living jackals (Canis mesomelas) and 14 of 31 dogs owned by pastoral communities in the same areas of Kenya. Two
A note on feeding habits, Ectoparasites and measurements of the Black-Backed Jackal Canis Mesomelas from Addo Elephant National Park
DsitSi from a small sample of black-backed jackals confined to the National Park indicated that they were opportunistic feeders taking various insects, molluscs, reptiles, birds, mammals and fruits
Thermal parameters of serval Felis serval (Felidae) and blackbacked jackal Canis mesomelas (Canidae)
TLDR
It is hypothesized that F. serval allows thermolability to conserve energy and C. mesomelas has a definite thermoneutral zone and exhibits less thermolable than F. Serval.
Food niche separation between four sympatric Namib Desert carnivores
The diet of four sympatric carnivore species was established by analyzing scats collected during 1978-1980, a period of increasing drought in the Namib Desert. Termites were especially important in
Some Aspects of Social Behavior in the Canidae
TLDR
The bateared fox has developed contact behaviors such as social grooming while the wolf has evolved more specialized agonistic postures that are used in the maintenance of a social hierarchy.
Age determination and growth curves in the black-backed jackal, Canis mesomelas Schreber, 1775 (Carnivora: Canidae)
TLDR
This study of age criteria and growth curves was undertaken to assist future biologists in evaluating from time to time the status of a population, i.e. whether it is increasing, static or decreasing.
Jackal helpers and pup survival
BLACKBACKED jackals (Canis mesomelas) are one of the few mammalian species to have long-term pair bonds and to exhibit a tendency for some offspring to help in the provisioning and guarding of
Differential passage rates of prey components through the gut of serval Felis serval and black-backed jackal Canis mesomelas
TLDR
Feeding trials conducted on Felis serval and Canis mesomelas showed that the same prey item may appear in up to seven scats, indicating over-estimation of some prey species relative to others in the diet of carnivores studied can occur.
Carnivore size and quaternary climatic change in southern Africa
Abstract The relationship between carnassial length and latitude south is analyzed for 17 African carnivore species to determine if individuals tend to be larger in cooler climates, as predicted by
Black-backed jackal diet in relation to food availability in the Natal Drakensberg
TLDR
The jackal's feeding strategy is discussed and it is considered to be primarily a searcher, living on the most abundant, conveniently sized prey; and a pursuer or scavenger only opportunistically.
