spatial and temporal dynamics of rabies virus variants in big brown bat populations across canada: footprints of an emerging zoonosis.phylogenetic analysis of a collection of rabies viruses that currently circulate in canadian big brown bats (eptesicus fuscus) identified five distinct lineages which have emerged from a common ancestor that existed over 400 years ago. four of these lineages are regionally restricted in their range while the fifth lineage, comprising two-thirds of all specimens, has emerged in recent times and exhibits a recent demographic expansion with rapid spread across the canadian range of its host. four o ...201020406385
synonymy of longibucca eptesica with longibucca lasiura (nematoda: rhabditoidea) and new host and geographic records.the genus longibucca chitwood, 1933 (nematoda: rhabditoidea) is reviewed based on examination of museum and adult specimens collected from 4 species of bats (myotis lucifugus, myotis ciliolabrum, eptesicus fuscus, and lasionycteris noctivagans) in alberta, canada. two species are considered valid, namely longibucca vivipara chitwood, 1933, and longibucca lasiura mcintosh and chitwood, 1934. longibucca eptesica elsea, 1953 is considered a synonym of l. lasiura. new hosts of longibucca lasiura inc ...19948195954
major antigenic groups of rabies virus in canada determined by anti-nucleocapsid monoclonal antibodies.a total of 123 rabies virus isolates from various geographical areas in canada were characterized by a panel of 43 anti-nucleocapsid monoclonal antibodies. four major antigenic groups are found in terrestrial mammals: "canadian arctic" from ontario, quebec and the northwest territories; "south-eastern georgian bay" from ontario; "south mid-central skunk" from alberta, saskatchewan and manitoba; and "brook's, alberta skunk" from a restricted area in alberta. bat isolates can be divided into 4 maj ...19863769442
rabies in insectivorous bats of western canada, 1979 to 1983.a total of 1,745, 362, and 536 bats collected in alberta, british columbia, and saskatchewan, respectively, was tested for rabies virus between 1979 and 1983. only one (0.1%) of 769 bats collected at random from buildings was infected with rabies virus in contrast to 95 (5%) of 1,874 symptomatic, rabies-suspect bats submitted for testing. the pattern of infection in the rabies-suspect bats was similar in alberta and saskatchewan, but differed in british columbia. rabies was diagnosed in four spe ...19863735577
characteristics of bat rabies in alberta.rabies in bats was monitored in alberta from 1971 to 1978 big brown bats replaced silver-haired bats as the species most frequently reported rabid during these years. rabies infection was comparatively high among little brown bats in central alberta in 1973 and has subsequently declined. only one rabid little brown bat was discovered in southern alberta which is populated by a different subspecies. outbreaks of rabies in little brown and big brown bat colonies tended to be brief events. observat ...19807397600
