  • Evolution of a Mosquito's Hatching Behavior to Match Its Human-Provided Habitat. [Journal Article]
    Am Nat. 2023 Feb; 201(2):200-214.Metz HC, Miller AK, … McBride CS
  • AbstractA subspecies of the yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti, has recently evolved to specialize in biting and living alongside humans. It prefers human odor over the odor of nonhuman animals and breeds in human-provided artificial containers rather than the forest tree holes of its ancestors. Here, we report one way this human specialist has adapted to the distinct ecology of human environme…
  • Non-uniform spatial sampling by individuals in midge swarms. [Journal Article]
    J R Soc Interface. 2023 Feb; 20(199):20220521.Feng Y, Ouellette NT
  • Individual animals engaged in collective behaviour can interchange their relative positions on a wide range of time scales. In situations where some regions of the group are more desirable, it is thought that more fit individuals will preferentially occupy the more favourable locations. However, this notion is difficult to test for animal groups like insect swarms that fluctuate rapidly and displ…
  • Differences in ingestive behavior between grazing goats and sheep at the bite scale. [Journal Article]
    Anim Sci J. 2023 Jan; 94(1):e13811.Yayota M, Hotokebuchi M, … Ohtani S
  • This study aimed to clarify the differences in ingestive behavior between goats and sheep at the bite scale. Animals were allowed to graze a feeding station of bahiagrass (Paspalum notatum Flügge) with two sward heights (short and tall) to two levels of bite depletion (20 and 40 bites). Ingestive behavior variables, which represent the rate and mass of bites and chews, intake rate, bite dimension…
  • Development of flank lesions in growing pigs after weaning: A case study. [Journal Article]
    Front Vet Sci. 2022; 9:1070206.Norring M, Ko HL, Valros A
  • Flank lesions in pigs are a common yet poorly understood consequence of damaging social behavior. One group of pigs on a commercial farm with group lactation and late weaning, and with the history of flank lesions was studied. Skin lesions on the flanks, including linear and circular lesions, and tail lesions on 69 pigs were recorded six times during 5 weeks after weaning at the age of 9 weeks. N…
  • Envenomation by Micrurus hemprichii in Brazilian Amazonia: A report of three cases. [Case Reports]
    Toxicon. 2023 Jan 26; 224:107048.Bisneto PF, Silva Pereira H, … Monteiro WM
  • Herein, we report three new separate cases of human envenomations by Micrurus hemprichii for the Amazon, which is a biome where envenomations by Micrurus are seldom reported. Two women were bitten after stepping on the snakes and one man was bitten while handling the animal. All cases occurred in the peridomicile, in rural areas. The first case evolved mainly to local symptoms, but the patient wa…
  • The inoculation eschar of Rickettsia parkeri rickettsiosis in Brazil: Importance and cautions. [Review]
    Ticks Tick Borne Dis. 2023 Mar; 14(2):102127.Rodrigues AC, de Castro MB, … Szabó MPJ
  • Two well characterized tick-borne rickettsioses occur in Brazil. Rickettsia rickettsii caused spotted-fever, transmitted by Amblyomma sculptum and Amblyomma aureolatum, is a severe disease with a high case-fatality rate in the southeastern region of the country. Rickettsia parkeri strain Atlantic rainforest infections transmitted by adult Amblyomma ovale ticks cause a milder non-lethal febrile di…
  • The effect of being housed with a goat on abnormal behavior in horses. [Journal Article]
    Arch Anim Breed. 2023; 66(1):9-16.Yildirim F, Yildiz A, … Küreksiz A
  • Horses in stalls generally remain in single-stall housing, so abnormal behavior can be observed in this management condition. Abnormal behavior can harm the horse's keeper, rider, or even the animal itself. The present study aims to examine the effect of goats on abnormal behaviors in horses. For this purpose, it placed six horses and six goats in the single-stall housing of the horses, one horse…
  • A Search for Tick-Associated, Bronnoya-like Virus Spillover into Sheep. [Journal Article]
    Microorganisms. 2023 Jan 13; 11(1)Bratuleanu BE, Raileanu C, … Eloit M
  • Tick-borne diseases are responsible for many vector-borne diseases within Europe. Recently, novel viruses belonging to a new viral family of the order Bunyavirales were discovered in numerous tick species. In this study, we used metatranscriptomics to detect the virome, including novel viruses, associated with Ixodes ricinus collected from Romania and France. A bunyavirus-like virus related to th…
