- ... In captive conditions (e.g. zoos), some Carnivora species typically show negligible stereotypic behaviour (SB) and reproduce successfully, while others tend to reproduce poorly and be very stereotypic. We used comparative methods to identify species level risk factors for SB and captive infant mortality (CIM). Candidate predictor variables were natural ranging behaviour, territoriality, aspects of ...

- ... Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis is a chytrid fungus that causes the lethal skin disease chytridiomycosis in amphibians. It is regarded as an emerging infectious disease affecting diverse amphibian populations in many parts of the world. Because there are few model amphibian species for immunological studies, little is known about immune defenses against B. dendrobatidis. We show here that the South ...
