In order to assess the role of the microbiocenosis of the digestive tract of herbivorous birds in transforming poor forage, the activity of cellulolytic enzymes in all departments of the gastrointestinal tract of the black grouse (Lyrurus tetrix) and Western capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) was studied. The functional diversity of microbial communities of different departments was also investigated. In both species of birds, nitrogenase and cellobiohydrolase activities were discovered in the… Expand
Microbial Nitrogen Fixation in the Intestine of Tipulidae Tipula maxima Larvae
Nitrogen fixers actively developing in the intestines of larvae stimulate a sharp increase in nitrogenase activity in the soil: after 3 months of incubation, the activity increases eightfold; it can contribute to the accumulation of nitrogen in the habitats of the larvae. Expand
Nitrogenase diversity and activity in the gastrointestinal tract of the wood-eating catfish Panaque nigrolineatus
The intake of a cellulose rich diet and the presence of a suitable environment for nitrogen fixation suggest that the GI tract microbial community may allow a unique trophic niche for P. nigrolineatus among fish. Expand
Biofilm-forming ability of coccus forms of the caecal microflora of laying hens when using the probiotic and nanonutrition cobalt
The use of the feed supplement on the basis of probiotic microorganisms of the genus Lactobacillus in combination with nano-cobalt preparations in a dose of 0.08 mg/kg liveweight in laying hensExpand
Comparison of gizzard and intestinal microbiota of wild neotropical birds
The results suggest that the most important factor separating the bacterial community structure was bird taxonomy, followed by foraging guild, but variation between localities is also likely to be important, but this could not be assessed with the study design. Expand
Comparative analysis of the gut microbiota of hornbill and toucan in captivity
This study characterized and compared the gut microbiota of toco toucan, great hornbill and wreathed hornbill using 16S rRNA high‐throughput sequencing technology, and further discussed the influence of host bird genetics on its gut microbiota. Expand


Functional features of microbial communities in the digestive tract of field voles (Microtus rossiaemeridionalis and Clethrionomys glareolus)
The nitrogen-fixating activity in the cecum was found to be the highest in the voles compared with the mammals studied earlier and the seasonal dynamics of both nitrogenase and cellobiohydrolase activities was registered in the southern vole. Expand
The Enzymatic Activity of the Gastrointestinal Tract Microflora of the Greater Mole Rat (Spalax microphtalmus, Spalacidae, Rodentia)
The purpose of this work was to obtain more detailed data on relative development of different segments of the intestine of mole rats (as a key index of using dietary fiber as a nutrient) and to determine the level of activity of symbiotic enzymes responsible for the digestion of plant glucans, topographically related to dietary fibers, and molecular nitrogen fixing (nitrogenases).

Assimilation of biological nitrogen by European beaver
A high nitrogen-fixing activity in the large intestine correlated with an increase in nitrogen content in the chyme upon its transfer over the gastrointestinal tract. Expand
Nitrogen fixation as a possible physiological basis of coprophagy in pikas (Ochotona, Lagomorpha, Mammalia)
Two families of the order Lagomorpha, Ochoto� nidae, and Leporidae, are characterized by a peculiar dietary adaptation, i.e., obligate autocoprophagy. The animal produces excrement of two types:Expand
