Rearing captive eastern hellbenders (Cryptobranchus a. alleganiensis) with moving water improves swim performance
Contributor(s):: Kenison, Erin K., Williams, Rod N.
Translocations often use captive-reared animals to help bolster or re-establish wild populations. However, captive environments are highly dissimilar from wild conditions and may deprive animals of experiences that promote normal development. Captive-rearing and translocation efforts are underway...

Camels from Roman imperial sites in Serbia
Contributor(s):: Vukovic-Bogdanovic, S., Blazic, S.
This paper presents camel remains identified in Roman sites in Serbia. The remains originate from Viminacium, the capital of Roman province Moesia, and from the 3rd-4th century Villa rustica in the locality of Vranj, in the province of Pannonia. In Viminacium, they were found in a 4th century...
Camels in Saudi oasis during the last two millennia; the examples of Dumat al-Jandal (Al-Jawf Province) and al-Yamama (Riyadh Province)
Contributor(s):: Monchot, H.
By its extraordinary adaptability to live in a hyper arid environment, the camel ( Camelus dromaderius) is certainly the animal that best characterizes the Arabian Peninsula. If a rich ethnographic literature exists showing the economic importance of this species through the last two millennia,...
Recent camel finds from Hungary
Contributor(s):: Daroczi-Szabo, L., Daroczi-Szabo, M., Kovacs, Z. E., Korosi, A., Tugya, B.
This paper is a brief review of camel bones recently discovered in the territory of modern-day Hungary. The goal of this paper is to provide an inventory of all known camel finds representing both the Roman Period province of Pannonia (1st-4th c.) and the northernmost outpost of the Ottoman...

Preliminary investigation of morphological differences between ten breeds of horses suggests selection for paedomorphosis. (Special Issue: Equitation science.)
Contributor(s):: Goodwin, D., Levine, M., McGreevy, P. D.
Paedomorphosis is the retention of juvenile morphology at maturity and is important in generating evolutionary change in domestic species and species in the wild. When comparing dogs with the wolf, this preliminary study saw paedomorphosis in their physical and behavioural traits (Goodwin,...
A pilot study of sexual dimorphism in the head morphology of domestic dogs
Contributor(s):: Carrasco, J. J., Georgevsky, D., Valenzuela, M., McGreevy, P. D.
The dog ( Canis lupus familiaris) displays more morphological diversity than any other species. It is a direct descendant of the gray wolf ( Canis lupus), but shows remarkable behavioral and morphological differences. It has been suggested that differences in skull shape that relate to brain...

Olfactory neuron biopsies in dogs: a feasibility pilot study
Contributor(s):: Overall, K. L., Arnold, S. E.
Olfactory neurons obtained through nasal biopsy were characterized. Using standard immunohistochemical techniques, nascent, developing, and mature neurons were identified in the tissues obtained. This technique shows that aspects of canine olfactory function may be potentially assessed using a...
Height to withers and abdominal circumference effects on diets of grazing goats
Contributor(s):: Mellado, M., Rodriguez, A., Villarreal, J. A., Lopez, R.
Diet selection in an arid rangeland of northern Mexico by short (height to withers 77 cm) multiparous non-pregnant, non-lactating does and the diets of multiparous non-pregnant, non-lactating does with reduced (101 cm) abdominal circumference is described from microhistological analysis of fecal...
Influence of size and asymmetry of sexual characters in the rooster and hen on the number of eggs laid
Contributor(s):: Forkman, B., Corr, S.
The effects of asymmetry and size of secondary sexual characters of 127 hens and 32 cocks on egg laying was studied in a relaxed selection line of Brown Leghorn fowls that had a relatively low level of egg production (approximately 0.6-0.8 eggs/day). Each hen spent 24 h/week with the cocks; there...
