MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING THE POOR REPRODUCTION IN THE WHOOPING CRANE (GRUS AMERICANA)
Reproductive success of the endangered whooping crane (Grus americana) maintained ex situ is suboptimal. The main goals of this multidisciplinary investigation are to advance the understanding of whooping crane reproduction ...
Investigating genetic and health factors related to AA amyloidosis prevalence in captive cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus): implications for population management
Systemic amyloid A (AA) amyloidosis is an increasingly important cause of morbidity and mortality among captive cheetahs, yet wild cheetahs are virtually unaffected, suggesting the phenomenon is a result of the captive ...
Characterization and Control of Aggression and Reproduction in the Male Clouded Leopard (Neofelis nebulosa)
Clouded leopards are a striking and elusive cat species whose secretive nature has made it difficult to gather information on population statistics and behavior in the wild, where the population is in decline. While captive ...
BIOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT OF REPRODUCTION IN CAPTIVE CRANES
There are 15 species of cranes found throughout the world, 11 of which are listed as vulnerable or endangered. All 15 species are currently managed in captivity; however, with increased threats to wild crane habitats and ...
Identification of the molecular networks governing ovulation frequency in low and high egg producing turkey hens
Selection for carcass traits has negatively impacted and varied the reproductive efficiency of the commercial turkey hen, creating overall lowered egg production as well as distinct groups of low egg producing hens (LEPH) ...
