Hamsterul auriu sirian

Durata citire: 2 minute

Hamsterul auriu sirian (Mesocricetus auratus) prezintă în stadiul adult o lungime de 12,5—15 cm, o greutate de 130—170 g masculul şi de 165—180 g femela.  Este un rozător care s-a adaptat şi trăieşte atît în captivitate, respectiv în crescătorii de producţie şi laboratoare cît şi în biotopul lui natural.

Adaptarea la condiţiile de captivitate a fost relativ uşoară, dovadă că se dezvoltă şi înmulţeşte în tot timpul anului dacă i se asigură condiţii corespunzătoare de căldură, lumină şi hrană.

Rangeland ecosystems which include unimproved grasslands, shrublands, savannas and semi-deserts, support half of the world’s livestock, while also providing habitats for some of the most charismatic of wildlife species. This book examines the pressures on rangeland ecosystems worldwide from human land use, over-hunting, and subsistence and commercial farming of livestock and crops. Leading experts have pooled their experiences from all continents to cover the ecological, sociological, political, veterinary, and economic aspects of rangeland management today. This book provides practitioners and students of rangeland management and wildland conservation with a diversity of perspectives on a central question: can rangelands be wildlands?

Astrovirus Research: Essential Ideas, Everyday Impacts, Future Directions

Durata citire: 2 minute

19 Astrovirus Research Essential Ideas, Everyday Impacts, Future DirectionsAstrovirus Research: Essential Ideas, Everyday Impacts, Future Directions By Stacey Schultz-Cherry
2012 | 160 Pages | ISBN: 1461447348 | PDF | 4 MB

Astroviruses were first identified in the feces of children in 1975. Since then, they have been found in ~ 3 to 20% of children with diarrhea. Given that serological studies have demonstrated that up to 90% of children have been exposed to at least one strain of astrovirus by age 9, the prevalence of infection may be much higher. Supporting this are studies demonstrating that astroviruses can also be isolated in a subset of asymptomatic individuals, suggesting that a proportion of infected individuals shed the virus asymptomatically or for some time after the resolution of other symptoms of infection. Asymptomatic carriers may be a major reservoir for astroviruses in the environment and could contribute to dissemination of the virus.
