Hematology of Lower Vertebrates

  title={Hematology of Lower Vertebrates},
  author={Terry W. Campbell},
Introduction The proper evaluation of the hemogram of any animal patient involves the determination of a total erythrocyte count [TRBC], packed cell volume [PCV], hemoglobin concentration [Hb], total white blood cell count [TWBC], white blood cell differential, and the evaluation of a stained peripheral blood film. The basic techniques used in mammalian hematology also apply to that of lower vertebrates, such as birds and reptiles. However, because lower vertebrates have nucleated erythrocytes… Expand
Do blood parasites increase immature erythrocytes and mitosis in amphibians
It is found that the presence of blood parasites, immature R BCs, and RBCs mitosis are frequent events in amphibians’ peripheral blood, and the analysis suggests an association between those features. Expand
Hematological and serum biochemical profile of farm emus (Dromaius novaehollandiae) at the onset of their breeding season.
It is found that emus are similar to other ratite species with respect to the changes in protein, globulin, triglyceride, and calcium levels, and contribute to the database for reference emu hematological and serum enzyme, metabolite, and electrolyte values. Expand
Morphometric studies of blood cells in Cyprinus carpio, Ctenopharyngodan idella and Hypophthalmichthys molitrix cultured fish in west Godavari region of Andhra Pradesh
The main objective of this study is to measure the blood cell dimension of the cultured fish Cyprinus carpio, Ctenopharyngodan idella and Hypophthalmichthys molitrix to provide basic knowledge for hematological research, cytological studies and clinical diagnosis. Expand
Fish hematology analysis as an important tool of aquaculture: A review
Automated analysis methods for the assessment of hematological parameters, as an alternative to manual methods, are a valid diagnostic aid for the future of aquaculture. Expand
Caracterización hematológica de hicoteas (Trachemys callirostris Gray, 1856) en Córdoba, Colombia
Differences found between individuals, depending on weight, sex and condition of maintenance ( in situ or ex situ ), serve as a reference to establish protocols for maintaining turtles in captivity. Expand
Morphology and size of blood cells of Rhinella arenarum (Hensel, 1867) as environmental health assessment in disturbed aquatic ecosystem from central Argentina
Four populations of Rhinella arenarum from aquatic environments with different degrees of disturbance in central Argentina were compared to assess the ability of cytomorphology and cytomorphometry of blood cells as a hematological biomarker to identify the site most affected by human activities.

A Review of Chelonian Hematology
The microstructure, ultrastructure, development, and function of chelonian blood cells are summarized, and factors that affect hematologic results are reviewed. Expand
A Novel Modified Semi-direct Method for Total Leukocyte Count in Birds
The modified semi-direct method for total leukocyte count (MSDTLC) in avian blood, using a diluted commercially-available eosin-based dye performed well, with high precision, allowing reliable counting of both heterophils and eosInophils inAvian blood samples. Expand
Blood cell morphometry of wild Gopherus flavomarginatus (Bolson tortoises) in the Chihuahuan desert
Blood cell sizes fitted related data from other reptile species, and can help monitor the health status of G. flavomarginatus individuals in the wild, thus advancing efforts to protect this endangered species. Expand
The Morphological Characterization of the Blood Cells in the Three Species of Turtle and Tortoise in Iran
Morphological characterization of blood cells were investigated in three species of tortoise and turtle in Iran and found the largest and the widest erythrocytes and nucleus were found in E. orbicularis and the smallest in T. graeca. Expand
