(ODOCOILEUS VIRGINIANUS): EXPERIMENTAL INFECTIONS AND ANTIBODY PREVALENCE IN NATURAL POPULATIONS

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract. Cache Valley virus (CVV) and Potosi virus (POTV) are two closely related mosquito-borne viruses (Bunyaviridae: Bunyamwera group) that appear to circulate in several regions of the United States, especially the Midwest. We determined the prevalence of specific neutralizing antibodies to both viruses in Indiana white-tailed deer and conducted infection experiments to assess whether deer could serve as an vertebrate-amplifying host. Crossinfection experiments also were carried out to investigate the level of antibody cross-reactivity and cross-protection between the two viruses. The seroprevalence rate was high for both CVV ( ? 66%) and POTV ( ? 43%) in adult deer statewide. Antibodies neutralizing CVV were more common among deer harvested in the northern part of Indiana whereas the prevalence of POTV antibodies suggested a more southern distribution for this virus. Experimental infections of captive deer showed that they may serve as amplifying hosts for either virus. Deer infected with CVV or POTV developed a 1–3-day viremia with 3.0 and 4.1 log10 plaque-forming units/ml mean peak titers, respectively. However, significant levels of antibody cross-reactivity between the two viruses were observed. Viremia was lower and shorter when animals immune to either CVV or POTV were cross-infected with the alternate virus and antibody responses following cross-infections resembled original antigenic sin with higher titers of antibodies against the primary agent. Several of the arthropod-borne North American Bunyamwera

DIET AND FOOD PREFERENCES OF WHITE-TAILED DEER IN

  CiteSeer

Summary: Summary: The diet and food preferences of white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) on north-eastern Stewart Island are described from the analysis of 160 samples of rumen contents collected between 1979 and 1985, and vegetation surveys in 1975 and 1976. Deer browsed all the hardwood trees, but few shrubs, ferns, or podocarps. Woody plants comprised 85.1 % (dry weight) of annual diet. Broadleaf (Griselinia littoralis; 34.6%) and supplejack (Ripogonum scandens; 18.6%) were the most important foods, all other species comprising less than 5%. There were no differences in diet between the sexes and only small differences between areas. Fawns, however, ate more supplejack fruit and less shrubs, ferns, herbs, and grasses than older deer. All deer ate more supplejack fruit and foliage of subcanopy trees, and less broadleaf, shrubs, and ferns in winter than in other seasons. Food appeared scarcest in summer. Deer probably obtained most of their food as fallen leaves and fruit; this is discussed in the context of the long term trends in forest structure and deer carrying capacity that follow deer colonisation. We believe the main hardwood food trees will gradually die out, resulting in a substantial decline in the carrying capacity of the forest.

DISPATCHES Deer Meat as the Source for a Sporadic Case of Escherichia coli O157:H7 Infection,

  CiteSeer

Summary: We report a case of Escherichia coli O157:H7, which was acquired by eating wild White-Tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus). DNA fingerprint analysis verified venison as the source of infection. This pediatric case emphasizes the need for dissemination of information to hunters regarding the safe handling and processing of venison. E scherichia coli O157:H7 (O157) is a cause of acute infectious diarrhea in humans and the leading cause of hemolytic uremic syndrome, especially among children in the United States (1). Many animals, including cattle, sheep, and goats, are known to harbor O157; however, cattle are most often implicated as the zoonotic source of human infection (2). Transmission is usually attributed to contaminated foods. In recent years, meats, other than beef, from which O157 has been isolated include pork, lamb, and poultry (2,3). Although several reports document the presence of O157 in deer (4-6), only one report (4) has shown evidence of an O157 infection from eating venison. This report was specific to the Black-Tailed deer (Odocoileus hemionus). To our knowledge, this is the first case of O157 infection linked with eating wild White-Tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) meat. Case Report A previously healthy 7-year-old boy was seen at a Connecticut emergency room with a 3-day history of gastrointestinal illness. Symptoms included bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and nausea. The child was treated with antibiotics as an outpatient; diarrhea resolved after 6 days. The child’s stool sample was positive for O157. Stool samples were not obtained from other family members. Two days before the child’s onset of illness, his father butchered and grilled freshly killed venison for the family. The child ate a large quantity of undercooked (red), gamey-tasting grilled venison tenderloin. His father ate a few bites of the

  CiteSeer

Summary: Ticks and blood specimens were collected from white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in Connecticut and analyzed to identify foci for Lyme borreliosis. Males and females of Ixodes scapulans, the chief vector of Borrelia burgdorferi, were collected from deer in five of eight counties during 1989-1991. Analysis by indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) staining of midgut tissues showed that prevalence of infection was highest (9.5 % of 367 ticks) in south central and southeastern Connecticut. Infected I. scapularis also were collected from southwestern regions of the state (12.1 % of 99 ticks), but prevalence of infection in northern counties was considerably lower (0.8 % of 124 ticks). Deer sera, obtained in 1980 and 1989-1991, were analyzed by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay or by IFA staining methods. Antibodies to B. burgdorferi were detected in sera collected from all eight counties in Connecticut. Deer had been infected by this spirochete in at least 50 towns, 17 (34%) of which are in south central and southeastern parts of the state. Borrelia burgdorfen is widely distributed in I. scapularis populations in Connecticut. Human cases of Lyme borreliosis have been reported from numerous towns in Connecticut [1-3]. Ixodes scapularis (previously designated Ixodes dammini[4]), the

____________________________________________________________________________________ _ Lishawa HWA RISK ASSESSMENT IN DEER WINTERING AREAS OF SOUTHERN VERMONT

  CiteSeer

Summary: Hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), Adelges tsugae Annand, an introduced aphid-like insect from Asia, is threatening to eliminate eastern hemlock, Tsuga canadensis (L.) Carr., throughout its range. Among its many ecological functions, eastern hemlock provides winter cover and browse for white-tailed deer, Odocoileus virginianus Zimmerman, in areas experiencing harsh winter conditions. In central and southern Vermont, eastern hemlock is the basic component of many white-tailed deer wintering areas (DWA) and is thought to reduce snow depths and moderate temperatures. The first objective of this study is to determine the relative risk of HWA infestation to the eastern hemlock dominated DWAs in southern Vermont. The eastern hemlock component of conifer dominated DWAs will be determined and used in a GIS model predicting the susceptibility and vulnerability of DWAs to HWA infestation. A sub-sample of thirty-two DWAs in southern Vermont were inventoried in summer and fall of 2004 for analysis. The second objective is to quantify the effects of eastern hemlock cover on winter temperature and snow depth conditions. Within six site-paired hemlock and hardwood stands, temperatures were recorded half-hourly and snow depths were recorded biweekly in the winters of ‘03-‘04 and ‘04-‘05. Preliminary results indicate that extreme temperatures are moderated and snow depth is reduced within eastern hemlock stands as compared to site-paired hardwood stands. The elimination of eastern hemlock from the forests of southern Vermont by HWA would greatly alter the local ecology and will dramatically affect species reliant upon hemlock stands for winter habitat.

Effects of Mule Deer and Bison on Regeneration of Island Scrub Oak on Santa Catalina Island, California 1

  CiteSeer

Summary: Islands commonly harbor unique species that are particularly susceptible to damage by introduced organisms. Historically, no large ungulates existed on Santa Catalina Island, but several were introduced, including mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) and bison (Bos bison). A recently completed study suggested bison may alter the structure of island scrub oak (Quercus pacifica) woodlands but no data exists for assessing impacts of mule deer to endemic trees and shrubs on the island. We are investigating this and other aspects of deer ecology on Santa Catalina Island during a study from January 2005 to August 2007. Our research was designed to estimate habitat use and diets, measure browse use of trees and shrubs, characterize current regeneration of scrub oak woodlands, and identify factors impinging on oak seedling survival, using data from multiple plots in which 1,600 total seedlings were planted in 2005. This report focuses on scrub oak woodland regeneration and seedling mortality. Our results suggest scrub oak seedling numbers are recovering in some areas of the island, likely related to recent removal of feral pigs and feral goats. Relatively large seedlings remain uncommon, potentially due to browsing by abundant mule deer. Nevertheless, physical damage to seedlings by bison appears more important for reduced seedling survival than browsing by mule deer.

GIS Analysis: Steele County Deer Vehicle Collisions

  CiteSeer

Summary: Throughout the Midwestern United States, white-tailed deer vehicle collisions (DVCs) continue to impact many people. The objective of this paper was to spatially and seasonally analyze DVC factors in an agricultural county. Minnesota Department of Natural Resources datasets, unsalvageable carcass and possession permits were used to analyze DVC?s in Steele County, Minnesota from 1995 to 2006. ESRI ArcGIS along with Spatial Analyst and Linear Referencing extensions were used to spatially locate re-occurring DVC patterns. Deer seasonal patterns and agricultural seasons were two seasonal factors examined. Spatial analysis revealed Interstate 35 had higher DVC density levels throughout the county. The DVC density levels were especially higher near urban areas. Seasonal analysis found peak DVC occurrences happening during agricultural harvesting season and the deer breeding season.

Age and aerobic performance in deer mice

  CiteSeer

Summary: Age impacts the phenotype of all multicellular animals, but lifetime changes in physiological traits are poorly understood for all but a few species. Here, we describe a cross-sectional study of age effects on body composition, aerobic performance and ventilation in deer mice Peromyscus maniculatus. This species lives considerably longer in captivity (in excess of 5 years) than most laboratory rodents, and the adaptational biology of its aerobic physiology is well studied. Our deer mice grew throughout life, and, as is typical for mammals, their basal metabolic rate (BMR) and maximal oxygen consumption in exercise (V. O?max) and thermogenesis (V. O?sum) increased as power functions of mass. Age did not affect BMR, but we found abrupt decreases in growth rate, V. O?max and V. O?sum at approximately 485 days of age, and the massadjusted maximal aerobic performance of old mice (5 years of age) was 20 % (V. O?max) to 35 % (V. O?sum) less than that of young animals. Breathing frequency (f) and oxygen extraction (EO?) also declined with age but did not change Summary abruptly. However, there were no consistent age-related changes in tidal volume (VT) or minute volume (V. min) after accounting for the effects of mass and V. O?sum. Age influenced several aspects of body composition (lean and fat mass). However, these changes were insufficient to explain the age-related declines in aerobic performance, suggesting that mass-specific oxidative capacity of lean tissue decreased with age. The performance changes we found could engender substantial reductions in the mobility and thermal tolerances of old deer mice. However, very few wild mice are likely to survive to ages where substantial performance decreases occur, so these declines are probably not subjected to strong selection in natural populations. Key words: age, basal metabolism, maximal oxygen consumption, aerobic capacity, thermogenesis, ventilation, mammal, deer mouse, Peromyscus maniculatus.

Dispatches Population Dynamics of the Deer Mouse

  CiteSeer

Summary: Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, first documented in 1993, is caused by Sin Nombre virus (SNV), which is carried by the Peromyscus species. In 1994, high SNV antibody prevalence was identified in deer mice from two California Channel Islands. We sampled two locations on three islands to estimate mouse population density and SNV prevalence. Population flux and SNV prevalence appear to vary independently. A new acute respiratory illness, hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS), was first documented in May 1993 in New Mexico (1). The death rate was initially more than 90 % (1,2) and is now approximately 50 % (3). Serologic surveys indicated positive reactions with previously known hantavirus antigens but not with any agents usually associated with severe respiratory illness (2). Four distinct serotypes of hantaviruses, which are carried by rodents, were known before 1993 (2). The virus causing HPS in the Four Corners area, Sin Nombre virus (SNV), represents an unusual fifth serotype that affects the lungs and has a high death rate (1,4). During the 1993 outbreak, rodents were trapped in and near homes with confirmed SNV cases and tested for hantavirus antibodies (1). Peromyscus maniculatus (deer mouse) was the most common rodent captured and had the highest antibody prevalence. Average prevalence was 30.4 % (0 % to 51.3 % range) for 813 P. maniculatus captured at 21 sites (1). P. maniculatus is the only species of mouse on four of the five islands that make

A method for testing handgun bullets in deer

  Physics (arXiv)

Summary: Using service handguns to test bullets in deer is problematic because of velocity loss with range and accuracy giving sub-optimal shot placement. An alternate method is presented using a scoped muzzleloader shooting saboted handgun bullets to allow precise (within 2" in many cases) shot placement for studying terminal ballistics in a living target. Deer are baited to a known range and path obstructions are used to place the deer broadside to the shooter. Muzzleloading powder charges provide a combination of muzzle velocity and velocity loss due to air resistance for a given ballistic coefficient that produce impact velocities corresponding to typical pistol velocities. With readily available sabots, this approach allows for testing of terminal ballistics of .355, .357, .40, .429, .45, and .458 caliber bullets with two muzzleloaders (.45 and .50 caliber). Examples are described demonstrating the usefulness of testing handgun bullets in deer for acoustic shooting event reconstruction, understanding tissue damage effects, and comparing relative incapacitation of different loads.

Deer have high nutritional requirements and can be very destructive; however, deer damage is a natural hazard of the farming profession and should be considered analogous to insect and disease problems. Therefore, an integrated management strategy (Figure 1) is often necessary for solving the problem.

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract- Spatial and temporal plasticity in Canis latrans (coyote) diets require regional studies to understand the ecological role of this omnivorous canid. Because coyotes have recently become established in South Carolina, we investigated their food habits by collecting 415 coyote scats on the Savannah River Site in western South Carolina from May 2005-July 2006. Seasonally available soft mast was the most common food item in 12 of the 15 months we sampled. Odocoileus virginianus (white-tailed deer) was the most common food item during December (40%) and March (37%). During May-June, fruits of Prunus spp. and Rubus spp. were the most commonly occurring food items. Fawns were the most common mammalian food item during May and June of both years despite low deer density.

  CiteSeer

Summary: License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Surveillance for Mycobacterium bovis in free-ranging elk (Cervus elaphus) and white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) from south-western Manitoba was carried out from 1997 to 2010 to describe the lesions, epidemiology, and geographic distribution of disease. Tissues were cultured from animals killed by hunters, culled for management, blood-tested, or found opportunistically. Period prevalence in elk was approximately six times higher than deer, suggesting a significant reservoir role for elk, but that infected deer may also be involved. Prevalence was consistently higher in elk compared to deer in a small core area and prevalence declines since 2003 are likely due to a combination of management factors instituted during that time. Older age classes and animals sampled from the core area were at significantly higher risk of being culture positive. Positive elk and deer were more likely to be found through blood testing, opportunistic surveillance, and culling compared to hunting. No non-lesioned, culture-positive elk were detected in this study compared to previous studies in red deer. 1.

RECOVERY OF NORTHERN FIORDLAND ALPINE GRASSLANDS AFTER REDUCTION IN THE DEER POPULATION

  CiteSeer

Summary: Summary: A significant recovery of food plants preferred by introduced deer (Cervus elaphus) occurred between 1969 and 1984 on 57 permanent plots in the alpine grasslands of northern Fiordland. During this period the deer population was reduced markedly by hunters operating from helicopters. Deer showed a strong preference for grasslands characterised by Chionochloa pallens and large-leaved herbs. These occur on fertile soils, and have shown the most recovery, especially at low altitude (c. 900-1100 m a.s.l.). Little change occurred in the less-favoured grasslands characterised by C. crassiuscula and C. acicularis on infertile soils. Several studies suggest the vegetation preferred by deer was some of the best former habitat of the takahe (Notornis mantelli), an endangered rail. Little competition from deer would now occur if takahe were reintroduced on to these sites, providing intensive aerial hunting continued.

DISPATCHES Chronic Wasting Disease in Free- Ranging Wisconsin

  CiteSeer

Summary: Three White-tailed Deer shot within 5 km during the 2001 hunting season in Wisconsin tested positive for chronic wasting disease, a prion disease of cervids. Subsequent sampling within 18 km showed a 3 % prevalence (n=476). This discovery represents an important range extension for chronic wasting disease into the eastern United States. Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is degenerative and usually considered to be fatal in White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus), Mule Deer (O. hemionus), and Elk (Cervus elaphus) associated with the presence of transmissible protease-resistant prion proteins (PrPcwd) (1,2). Although the transmission route of PrPcwd is unknown, it may be transmitted in deer and elk by direct contact or indirectly from the environment (1,2). In experiments, clinical signs have appeared as early as 15 months after exposure (1) and include weight loss, anorexia, repetitive behaviors, hyperesthesia, and intractability. Signs progress to severe emaciation, extreme behavioral changes, excessive salivation, tremors, and mild ataxia (1,2). CWD was first recognized in captive Mule Deer in Colorado (3) and subsequently described in the free-ranging cervid populations of Colorado and Wyoming (1); prevalence in these disease-endemic areas varies spatially and among the three sympatric cervid species (4). Before its discovery in Wisconsin, CWD was detected in captive cervid farms in

RESEARCH Sentinel-based Surveillance of Coyotes to Detect Bovine Tuberculosis, Michigan

  CiteSeer

Summary: Bovine tuberculosis (TB) is endemic in white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in the northeastern portion of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. Bovine TB in deer and cattle has created immense fi nancial consequences for the livestock industry and hunting public. Surveillance identifi ed coyotes (Canis latrans) as potential bio-accumulators of Mycobacterium bovis, a fi nding that generated interest in their potential to serve as sentinels for monitoring disease risk. We sampled 175 coyotes in the bovine TB–endemic area. Fifty-eight tested positive, and infection prevalence by county ranged from 19 % to 52 % (statistical mean 33%, SE 0.07). By contrast, prevalence in deer (n = 3,817) was lower (i.e., 1.49%; Mann-Whitney U 4,4 = 14, p<0.001). By focusing on coyotes rather than deer, we sampled 97 % fewer individuals and increased the likelihood of detecting M. bovis by 40%. As a result of reduced sampling intensity, sentinel coyote surveys have the potential to be practical indicators of M. bovis presence in wildlife and livestock.

addressed. OFFICIAL HUNTING PATTERNS, AND TRENDS IN THE PROPORTIONS OF SIKA (CERVUS NIPPON) AND RED DEER

  CiteSeer

Summary: used to describe the pattern of official hunting, to indicate changes in hunting efficiency, and to show trends in the proportions of sika and red deer in sympatric populations. The pattern of hunting largely reflected wild animal control priorities, and to some extent the resources available. Whereas hunting effort was concentrated in Block 1 (of three) during the 1960s to protect catchment values, changes in the rationale for wild animal control and the efforts of commercial and recreational hunters in the more accessible areas led to a more even spread of the hunting effort from the early 1970s. Hunting efficiency also varied between the three hunting blocks, probably reflecting differences in the ease with which particular habitats could be hunted. A decline in hunting efficiency over the study period was interpreted as an overall decrease in the density of the deer population. The proportion of sika among the deer shot in the Kaweka Range has increased steadily from about 10-20 % in the early 1960s to 70 % in 1987-88. A competitive advantage over red deer because of their different digestive physiology is suggested as the main reason. The most rapid increases in the proportion of sika were associated with two peaks in commercial venison and live-capture operations that concentrated on red deer, indicating that commercial hunting has also been a factor. It is likely that sika will continue increasing in proportion to red deer in areas already inhabited. In addition, sika will probably continue to disperse into new areas as they competitively displace red deer.

Computational Models of White-Tailed Deer in the Florida Everglades

  CiteSeer

Summary: . Computer models can be used to simulate the interactions between animals and their environments. The SIMPDEL (Spatially-Explicit Individual-Based Simulation Model of Florida Panther and White-Tailed Deer in the Everglades and Big Cypress Landscapes) model has been developed to analyze and predict the effects of alternative water management scenarios in South Florida on the long-term populations of white-tailed deer and Florida panther. This model simulates the aging, reproduction, foraging, growth, and mortality of individual animals over a period of 23 years. The primary focus of this work is the use of parallel processing in the three main computational components of SIMPDEL: hydrology, vegetation, and deer foraging. Very similar results for both sequential and parallel SIMPDEL models have been obtained and speed improvements ranging from 8.9 to 27.0 were achieved for the parallel model over the sequential model executing on a Sun SPARCstation 5.

  CiteSeer

Summary: Abstract: Soil productivity effects nutritive quality of food plants, growth of humans and animals, and reproductive health of domestic animals. Game-range surveys sometimes poorly explained variations in wildlife populations, but classification of survey data by major soil types improved effectiveness. Our study evaluates possible health effects of lower condition and reproductive rates for wild populations of Odocoileus virginianus Zimmerman (white-tailed deer) in some physiographic regions of Mississippi. We analyzed condition and reproductive data for 2400 female deer from the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks herd health evaluations from 1991–1998. We evaluated age, body mass (Mass), kidney mass, kidney fat mass, number of corpora lutea (CL) and fetuses, as well as fetal ages. Region affected kidney fat index (KFI), which is a body condition index, and numbers of fetuses of adults (P < 0.001). Region affected numbers of CL of adults (P < 0.002). Mass and conception date (CD) were affected (P < 0.001) by region which interacted significantly with age for Mass (P < 0.001) and CD (P < 0.04). Soil region appears to be a major factor influencing physical characteristics of female deer.

Dispatches Deer Ticks (Ixodes scapularis) and the Agents of Lyme Disease and Human

  CiteSeer

Summary: all stages of Ixodes scapularis, the deer tick vector of Lyme disease and human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE). Polymerase chain reaction analyses of the ticks showed Borrelia burgdorferi and the Ehrlichia sp. that causes HGE. Lyme disease, a tick-borne spirochetosis transmitted by the deer tick (Ixodes scapularis Say), was reported from 46 states in the United States in 1996; for the past 6 years, an average of 20 % of those cases have been from Westchester and Suffolk Counties, New York (1). While spread of the deer tick population in New York State has been documented north and west of Westchester County (2), movement of ticks southward toward New York City has been largely ignored, despite rising Lyme disease case numbers in southern Westchester and a relatively high incidence of human parasitism by vector ticks. The discovery in Westchester County of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE), a second, potentially fatal, tick-borne disease (3), and of the causative Ehrlichia equi-like rickettsial agent in I. scapularis (4) highlights the significance of defining the geographic range of the deer tick. This is particularly important in urban areas, where residents may not be familiar with tick-borne diseases common in nearby suburban and rural areas. Foci of Lyme disease can occur in forested urban areas, as well as in rural sites, if ticks and their hosts are present (5). Because of the proximity of Van Cortlandt Park to areas of southern Westchester where I. scapularis have been collected (Falco, unpub. data), the park’s relatively large wooded area (approximately 60 % of 468 ha), and the wide range of vertebrate hosts on which this tick feeds, we examined rodents live-trapped in the park to determine if deer ticks were present. For one night in August 1995, during the period of larval I. scapularis activity, trapping was conducted on five study grids, each 50 m by 50 m. Fifty Sherman mouse traps (H.B.

Dispatches Ehrlichia chaffeensis Antibodies in

  CiteSeer

Summary: Surveillance of 2,277 white-tailed deer for antibodies against Ehrlichia chaffeensis in Iowa showed seropositivity rates of 12.5 % in 1994 and 13.9 % in 1996. From 1994 to 1996, the estimated number of seropositive deer increased to 54,701 (28%). The increasing deer population and expanding tick distribution may increase risk for human monocytic ehrlichiosis. Human monocytic ehrlichiosis (HME) is a newly recognized disease caused by Ehrlichia chaffeensis, a rickettsialike, gram-negative, pleomorphic bacterium (1). HME causes clinical illness, from mild and flulike to life threatening. A prolonged incubation period and ambiguous symptoms complicate the diagnosis. Early recognition and treatment of the disease are key to preventing death. Identifying the ecologic niches for the etiologic agent and vector is important for characterizing ehrlichiosis and the occupational and environmental risk for illness. The southern counties of Iowa border the region of endemic HME, and an important reservoir host, the white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), is common in Iowa, as is the vector, the Lone Star tick (Amblyomma americanum) (2,3). Although humans may be hosts for nymph and adult ticks, they are not the preferred mammal for the tick and therefore are accidental dead-end hosts of HME (4). Person-to-person transmission is not known to occur. Most likely to be infected with Ehrlichia are populations with an increased risk for tick exposure, including hunters, farmers, hikers, campers, foresters, and park rangers. To define the prevalence and geographic distribution of E. chaffeensis in Iowa, we tested blood collected from white-tailed deer from every county in the state in 1994 and 1996.

Research Naturally Occurring Ehrlichia chaffeensis Infection in Coyotes from Oklahoma

  CiteSeer

Summary: A nested polymerase chain reaction assay was used to determine the presence of Ehrlichia chaffeensis, E. canis, and E. ewingii DNA in blood samples of free-ranging coyotes from central and northcentral Oklahoma. Of the 21 coyotes examined, 15 (71%) were positive for E. chaffeensis DNA; none was positive for E. canis or E. ewingii. Results suggest that E. chaffeensis infections are common in free-ranging coyotes in Oklahoma and that these wild canids could play a role in the epidemiology of human monocytotropic ehrlichiosis. Human monocytotropic ehrlichiosis, a tickborne zoonosis caused by the rickettsial pathogen Ehrlichia chaffeensis (Rickettsiales: Ehrlichieae), occurs primarily in the southern, southcentral, and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States (1,2). The principal vector is the lone star tick, Amblyomma americanum (L.), and associations between the presence of the tick and the occurrence of human ehrlichiosis have been documented (1). The principal wildlife reservoir is the white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) (3,4). Indeed, site-specific geographic and temporal associations have been made between the presence of A. americanum and E. chaffeensis antibodies in deer (5,6). No other wildlife species has been incriminated in the epidemiology of this disease, although serologic reactivity was detected in free-ranging raccoons (Procyon lotor) and opossums (Didelphis virginianus) from Georgia (5) and white-footed mice (Peromyscus leucopus) from Connecticut (7). Additionally, red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) have been shown to be susceptible to infection under experimental conditions (8). Although some rodents have been experimentally infected with this pathogen (9), research findings about natural infections in wild rodent populations have been inconsistent (7,10). Domestic dogs are susceptible to both natural and experimental E. chaffeensis infections (11-13).

Landscape features affect gene flow of Scottish highland red deer (Cervus elaphus). Mol. Ecol

  CiteSeer

Summary: Landscape features have been shown to strongly influence dispersal and, consequently, the genetic population structure of organisms. Studies quantifying the effect of landscape features on gene flow of large mammals with high dispersal capabilities are rare and have mainly been focused at large geographical scales. In this study, we assessed the influence of several natural and human-made landscape features on red deer gene flow in the Scottish Highlands by analysing 695 individuals for 21 microsatellite markers. Despite the relatively small scale of the study area (115 × 87 km), significant population structure was found using F-statistics (F ST = 0.019) and the program STRUCTURE, with major differentiation found between populations sampled on either side of the main geographical barrier (the Great Glen). To assess the effect of landscape features on red deer population structure, the ArcMap GIS was used to create cost-distance matrices for moving between populations, using a range of cost values for each of the landscape features under consideration. Landscape features were

Gene flow after inbreeding leads to higher survival in deer mice

  CiteSeer

Summary: We test the ability of gene flow to alleviate the deleterious effects of inbreeding in a small mammal, the deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus). After three generations of sib–sib mating, individuals from three lines of mice were either subject to further inbreeding or were mated with an outbred individual. Subsequently, these mice, plus a control line, which were first generation (F1) mice from unrelated individuals kept in captivity for the same duration as the treatment lines, were released into isolated pens in a forest in western Montana. Survival of individual mice was recorded. Survival models that allowed variation in breeding treatments were well supported, whereas models explaining variation in line, or release location were not well supported. Survival was highest for offspring of the outcross group, intermediate for the inbred animals, and lowest for the control group. This suggests that the introduction of migrants can reduce inbreeding depression, as theory predicts. We also show limited evidence for purging of deleterious recessive alleles that can cause inbreeding depression. While purging may have occurred, the demographic cost was non-trivial as 5 of 8 of our inbred mouse lines went extinct during the inbreeding process.

Summary: Abstract. The host-feeding patterns of Anopheles quadrimaculatus Say and Anophe-les punctipennis (Say) were examined in order to evaluate their potential contributions to the transmission of eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEv) and other arboviruses in the northeastern U.S.A. Engorged mosquitoes of the two species were collected from EEEv foci in central New York (NY) and throughout New Jersey (NJ), and their bloodmeals were identified using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based assay and sequencing portions of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene. Analysis of 131 An. quadrimaculatus and 107 An. punctipennis from NY revealed that 97.7 % and 97.2%, respectively, had acquired blood solely from mammalian hosts. Similarly, examina-tion of 288 An. quadrimaculatus and 127 An. punctipennis from NJ showed 100% and 96.0%, respectively, contained mammalian-derived bloodmeals. Mosquitoes con-taining mixed bloodmeals from both avian and mammalian hosts were detected in 1.6 % of An. quadrimaculatus from NY, and 2.8 % and 4.0 % of An. punctipennis from NY and NJ, respectively. White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) constituted the most common vertebrate host for these anopheline mosquitoes, accounting for

Summary: White pine (Pinus strobus) provides terrestrial habitat elements across the New England landscape in ways that other large conifer species are unable to duplicate. As a food source, white pine provides seeds, needles and buds, bark, and the insects that can be gleaned from white pine substrates. White pine seed provides a food source for bird species such as red-breasted nuthatch (Sitta canadensis), pine warbler (Dendroica pinus), chipping sparrow (Spizella passerina), common grackle (Quiscalus quiscala), crossbills (Loxia sp.), pine siskin (Carduelis pinus), and evening grosbeak (Coccothraustes vespertinus) (DeGraaf and Yamasaki 2001; Abbott 1958). Black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) and pine warbler also glean insects from white pine bark, needles and twigs. White pine seed is a food source for eastern chipmunk (Tamias striatus), gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis), red squirrel (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus), northern and southern flying squirrels (Glaucomys sabrinus and G. volans), white-footed mouse (Peromyscus leucopus), and red-backed vole (Clethrionomys gapperi). White pine is an emergency winter food source for herbivores such as white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and a minor food item for spruce grouse (Falcipennis canadensis). Finally, the porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum) is well-known for its tree-barking habits on white pine as well as the

Cerebrovascular injury caused by a high strain rate insult in the thorax

  CERN Preprints

Summary: Primary blast-induced traumatic brain injury (TBI) has increased in documented incidence and public prominence in recent conflicts. Evidence for a thoracic mechanism of blast-induced TBI was recently reviewed and, while the totality is compelling, data from experiments isolating this mechanism is sparse. Notably, one recent study showed pericapillar haemorrhage in brain tissue from victims of single, fatal gunshot wounds to the chest. Here, qualitative results are reported for a small field study that isolated a thoracic mechanism for TBI caused by a high strain rate insult in white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus, mass 49-80 kg) in a natural environment. In each of three cases, petechiae were present on the surface of the frontal, occipital and/or left parietal lobes, along with capillary damage in the choroid plexus. The location of the projectile impact to the thorax seemed to affect the degree of damage. This may be due to the proximity to the great vessels. The data reported here provides direct evid...

Comparison of the forest structure and regeneration

  CiteSeer

Summary: SUMMARY: The absence of introduced browsing animals from Bench Island, located 5 km east of Stewart Island, provides the opportunity to compare forest structure and regeneration in these two areas of similar vegetation with and without browsing animals. The population structures of the main canopy tree species, rata (Metrosideros umbellata), kamahi (Weinmannia racemosa), and rimu (Dacrydium cupressinum), are similar in the areas compared. However, on Stewart Island, browsing animals, mainly white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) and the Australian brush-tailed possum (Trichosurus vulpecula), have drastically reduced the abundance of subcanopy trees and shrubs such as Pseudopanax simplex, P. crassifolius, Fucshia excorticata, Myrsine australis, Schefflera digitata, Coprosma lucida and C. foetidissima; ferns such as Phymatosorus diversifolius, Asplenium bulbiferum and herbs like Kirkophytum lyallii have likewise been reduced. The regeneration of the tree fern Dicksonia squarrosa is also severely impeded by browsing, and the generally sparse character of the understorey vegetation on Stewart Island contrasts sharply with the nearly continuous cover on Bench Island. On Stewart Island, the more open main tree canopy and greatly reduced abundance of plants in the 15-140cm tier results in greater species frequencies in the 0-15 em tier, but browsing pressure impedes their further development. Introduced browsing animals have already significantly altered the structure and floristic composition of the rata-kamahi-rimu forests on Stewart Island and their effects are likely to be more severe in the future unless animal numbers are reduced.

DISPATCHES West Nile Virus Antibody Prevalence in

  CiteSeer

Summary: Twenty percent prevalence of West Nile virus antibody was found in free-ranging medium-sized Wisconsin mammals. No significant differences were noted in antibody prevalence with regard to sex, age, month of collection, or species. Our results suggest a similar route of infection in these mammals. In 1999, West Nile virus (WNV) was detected for the first time in the United States in dead American crows (Corvus brachyrhynchos), and a disease surveillance system that used dead crows was established (1,2). Serologic surveys to determine the prevalence of WNV exposure in free-ranging mammals (3–6) are relatively rare. Although WNV can infect a wide range of vertebrates, mammals are assumed to be dead-end hosts (7). We report the results of a 2003–2004 WNV serosurvey in medium-sized mammals from south-central Wisconsin. The Study We obtained samples from a part of south-central Wisconsin (Dane and Iowa Counties) recently identified as an area where white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) had chronic wasting disease infection (8). Medium-sized free-ranging mammals were collected as part of a larger study to evaluate the potential for transmission of chronic wasting disease from infected white-tailed deer carcasses to scavenging mammals. A total of 228 medium-sized mammal carcasses, consisting of 78 raccoons (Procyon lotor), 71 Virginia opossums (Didelphis virginiana), 59 coyotes (Canis latrans), 7 red foxes (Vulpes vulpes), 6 striped skunks (Mephitis mephitis), 5 feral cats (Felis catus), and 2 badgers (Taxidea taxus), were obtained by trapping, shooting, or collecting fresh road kills during October 2003 through April 2004. These animals were collected in rural areas consisting of small woodlots, agricultural fields, and roadsides.

Benefits for Dominant Red Deer Hinds under a Competitive Feeding System: Food Access Behavior, Diet and Nutrient Selection

  CiteSeer

Summary: Social dominance is widely known to facilitate access to food resources in many animal species such as deer. However, research has paid little attention to dominance in ad libitum access to food because it was thought not to result in any benefit for dominant individuals. In this study we assessed if, even under ad libitum conditions, social rank may allow dominant hinds to consume the preferred components of food. Forty-four red deer hinds (Cervus elaphus) were allowed to consume ad libitum meal consisting of pellets of sunflower, lucerne and orange, and seeds of cereals, corn, cotton, and carob tree. The meal was placed only in one feeder, which reduced accessibility to a few individuals simultaneously. During seven days, feeding behavior (order of access, time to first feeding bout, total time spent feeding, and time per feeding bout) were assessed during the first hour. The relative abundance of each meal component was assessed at times 0, 1 and 5 h, as well as its nutritional composition. Social rank was positively related to the amount of time spent feeding during the 1 st h(P = 0.048). Selection indices were positively correlated with energy (P = 0.018 during the 1 st h and P = 0.047 from 1 st to 5 th) and fat (only during the 1 st h; P = 0.036), but also negatively with certain minerals. Thus, dominant hinds could select high energy meal components for longer time under an ad libitum but restricted food access setting. Selection indices showed a higher selectivity when food availability was higher (1 st hour respect to 1 st to 5 th). Finally, high and low ranking hinds had longer time per feeding bout than mid ones (P = 0.011), suggesting complex behavioral feeding tactics of low

Tracking Cats: Problems with Placing Feline Carnivores on d 18 O, dD Isoscapes

  CiteSeer

Summary: Background: Several felids are endangered and threatened by the illegal wildlife trade. Establishing geographic origin of tissues of endangered species is thus crucial for wildlife crime investigations and effective conservation strategies. As shown in other species, stable isotope analysis of hydrogen and oxygen in hair (dD h, d 18 O h) can be used as a tool for provenance determination. However, reliably predicting the spatial distribution of dDh and d 18 Oh requires confirmation from animal tissues of known origin and a detailed understanding of the isotopic routing of dietary nutrients into felid hair. Methodology/Findings: We used coupled dDh and d 18 Oh measurements from the North American bobcat (Lynx rufus) and puma (Puma concolor) with precipitation-based assignment isoscapes to test the feasibility of isotopic geo-location of felidae. Hairs of felid and rabbit museum specimens from 75 sites across the United States and Canada were analyzed. Bobcat and puma lacked a significant correlation between H/O isotopes in hair and local waters, and also exhibited an isotopic decoupling of d 18 O h and dD h. Conversely, strong dD and d 18 O coupling was found for key prey, eastern cottontail rabbit (Sylvilagus floridanus; hair) and white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus; collagen, bone phosphate). Conclusions/Significance: Puma and bobcat hairs do not adhere to expected pattern of H and O isotopic variation predicted by precipitation isoscapes for North America. Thus, using bulk hair, felids cannot be placed on d 18 O and dD isoscapes for use in forensic investigations. The effective application of isotopes to trace the provenance of feline carnivores

MORTALITY OF WHITE-TAILED AND DESERT MULE DEER FAWNS IN WEST-CENTRAL TEXAS 2007 Final Progress Report Prepared by

  CiteSeer

Summary: The contents of this report represent the final notice of progress made on the white-tailed and mule deer project located in northwest Crockett County, Texas. The work conducted from fiscal years (FY) 2003-04–2006-07 is best described by the thesis of David A. Butler who studied fawn birth- and bed-sites and the dissertation of Shawn P. Haskell who was contracted to study fawn mortality. The non-introductory chapters of these 2 written works represent 7 manuscripts intended for publication. Two have been published, 2 are in press, 2 are in review, and the final chapter, intended as a Wildlife Monograph has not yet been submitted. Page numbers will follow format of the individual theses; each contains an overall Abstract and Table of Contents. To help orientation, the first thesis is 92 pages total, thus the second will begin on the 95 th page of this document. The second is in draft form and is thus subject to further modification, although modifications will not likely change results or interpretations. Raw data and

Session The Economics of Mitigation and Cost-Effective Strategies Abstract COST JUSTIFICATION AND EXAMPLES OF COST-BENEFIT ANALYSES OF MITIGATION MEASURES

  CiteSeer

Summary: Wildlife-vehicle collisions, especially with deer (Odocoileus spp.), elk (Cervus elaphus) and moose (Alces alces) are numerous and have shown an increasing trend over the last several decades in the United States and Canada. We calculated the costs associated with the average deer- ($6,617), elk- ($17,483) and moose-vehicle collision ($30,760), including vehicle repair costs, human injuries and fatalities, towing, accident attendance and investigation, monetary value to hunters of the animal killed in the collision, and cost of disposal of the animal carcass. In addition, we reviewed the effectiveness and costs of 13 mitigation measures considered effective in reducing collisions with large ungulates We conducted cost-benefit analyses over a 75-year period using discount rates of 1%, 3 % and 7 % to identify the threshold values (in 2007 $) above which individual mitigation measures start generating benefits in excess of costs. These threshold values were translated into the number of deer-, elk-, or moose-vehicle collisions that need to occur per kilometer per year for a mitigation measure to start generating economic benefits in excess of costs. For example, we calculated that wildlife exclusion fencing in combination with large mammal underpasses (one every 2 km) and wildlife jump-outs generates economic benefits if the pre-mitigation collisions are greater than 3.2 deer, 1.2 elk, or

Summary: SUMMARY: The forests and scrublands of the Taramakau catchment can be divided into six sub-climax associations and two seral associations. The sub-climax associations are st:.balpine scrub, bushline, rata-totara, red beech, silver beech and mountain beech forest. Except (or silver beech forest and mountain beech forest, which are largely restricted to the Otehake tributary, site differentiation between these associations is generally altitudinal. These sub-climax associations appear to be regenerating satisfactorily except. perhaps, for red beech forest where there is a slight regeneration gap. The two seral associations, kamahi forest and short scrub-hardwood forest, generally occur on unstable soils. Both show marked regeneration gaps which can be related to the presence of terrestrial browsing mammals. These two associations comprise over half the forest in the upper Taramakau and lower north Taramakau. and consequently the cc.ndition of these two areas must be regarded as critical.
