International Perspectives: The Future of Nonhuman Primate Resources, Proceedings of the Workshop Held April 17-19, 2002

The way forward for nonhuman primate (NHP) assets is a priority of scientists, veterinarians, and investment professionals. An April 2002 workshop introduced individuals from around the globe to debate a variety of elements of the difficulty reminiscent of present shortfalls and excesses in NHP breeding and exportation courses, the prestige of breeding and conservation courses across the world, the improvement of particular pathogen-free colonies, problems in transporting NHP, and demanding situations within the administration of NHP colonies.

Feeding in domestic vertebrates : from structure to behaviour

Domestication of vertebrates is predicated at the figuring out of the desires of animals of their average surroundings. hence the good fortune of this domestication all through human background is essentially dependant of the information of the animal feeding habit. the purpose of this quantity is to supply complicated scholars and researchers with a evaluate of present wisdom of feeding in family mammals and birds.

Carnica, (23) A m. cecropia. B. , 1793: 327) Apis cerana is the East Asiatic counterpart of A mellifera (see Butler, 1954; Koeniger, 1976a). Its morphology and behavior are so similar to A mellifera that for a long time it was considered as an A. mellifera subspecies (ButtelReepen, 1906). , fanning with the abdomen toward the entrance). Moreover, it is genetically separated from A mellifera (Ruttner and Maul, 1969, 1983). It is not true that A. cerana is smaller than A. mellifera. These species greatly overlap in size (Fig.

These introductions were complete failures. The colonies did not survive for more than 1 or 2 years, and nature seems to have eliminated all the nonadapted genes within a short time. The reproductive behavior of A. m. intermissa is well adapted to the environment. In years of drought, 80% of the local population may die even though these bees are resistant to adverse external conditions. However, in the next humid year the losses will be rapidly replaced by an enormous swarming activity. In the oasis of Laghouat, Brother Adam (1983) observed a colony which produced seven swarms during a single season.
