Le grand chacal d'Egypte, Cam's aureus lupaster qui vit en Egypte a έΐέ trouvo pour la premiere fois au Sina'i. Le loup, Canz's lupus n'a pas έΐό signalo en Afrique du Nord ou en Egypte mais on le connait au Sinai. L'auteur montre que C. aureus lupaster n'est pas une grande race du chacal, C. aureus, mais une petite race du loup, C. lupus. Ainsi le loup doit-il exister en Afrique du Nord et en Egypte, et, au Sinai, il parait s'apparenter la petite race d'Arabie, C. lupus arabs

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,Expand
Reviving the African Wolf Canis lupus lupaster in North and West Africa: A Mitochondrial Lineage Ranging More than 6,000 km Wide
TLDR
The results suggest that the African wolf is a relatively ancient gray wolf lineage with a fairly large, past effective population size, as also suggested by the Pleistocene fossil record and in terms of conservation, it appears urgent to further characterize the status of the Africanwolf with regard to the African golden jackal. Expand
The Cryptic African Wolf: Canis aureus lupaster Is Not a Golden Jackal and Is Not Endemic to Egypt
TLDR
The Egyptian jackal is conclusively placed within the grey wolf species complex, together with the Holarctic wolf, the Indian wolf and the Himalayan wolf, and seems to represent an ancient wolf lineage which most likely colonized Africa prior to the northern hemisphere radiation. Expand
THE POSITION OF JACKALS IN THE CANIS GENUS AND LIFE-HISTORY OF THE GOLDEN JACKAL ( CANIS AUREUS L . ) IN BULGARIA AND ON THE BALKANS NIKOLAI
The taxonomy and evolution of genus Canis is not sufficiently elucidated, regardless of the considerable literature and old and contemporary studies on this group which has always attracted interest.Expand
Remarks on the skull morphology of Canis lupaster Hemprich and Herenberg, 1832 from the collection of the Natural History Museum “G. Doria” of Genoa, Italy
Canis lupaster is a canid that lives in North Africa. In the past, this species was considered a subspecies of golden jackal ( Canis aureus ), a subspecies of wolf ( Canis lupus ), or a separatedExpand
Evolution and biogeography of Canids (Canis and Vulpes) in North-West Africa
North Africa, and especially the arid areas of the Sahara-Sahel, is characterised by unique biogeographical features that have been associated to major phylogeographic patterns. Nevertheless,Expand
Rediscovering a forgotten canid species
TLDR
It is suggested that the estimated current geographic range of golden jackal in Africa represents the African wolf range, and the need for improved studies of geographic range and population surveys for this taxonomically overlooked species is highlighted. Expand
Population genetics of the African wolf (Canis lupaster) across its range: first evidence of hybridization with domestic dogs in Africa
TLDR
The results provide evidence that the genome of the African wolf is still subject to admixture with C. lupaster, which could lead to the genetic dilution of endemic African wolf lineages, such as in eastern Africa, but may also imply disease prevalence and competition for resources with domestic dogs. Expand
Diet composition of a Newly Recognized Canid Species, the African Golden Wolf (Canis anthus), in Northern Algeria
TLDR
The results show the opportunistic resource use by the African golden wolf, with seasonal variation and a propensity for large-sized prey, including considerable amounts of livestock carcasses, which underlines the importance of an effective wildlife management. Expand
The analysis of the canid mitochondrial genome studied in Morocco shows that it is neither wolf (Canis lupus) nor Eurasian jackal (Canis aureus).
TLDR
The mitochondrial genome of three Moroccan canids is analysed and it is concluded that they belong to a different species to the wolf Canis lupus and the Eurasian golden jackal. Expand
