evidence for an increased geographical distribution of dermacentor reticulatus in germany and detection of rickettsia sp. rpa4.two studies were performed to elucidate the current distribution of the tick dermacentor reticulatus in germany. in the first one in 2003, a total of 365 dogs from 171 sites in the states of berlin and brandenburg was screened for ticks, and the corresponding outdoor sites that the dogs usually visited were searched for host-seeking ticks by the flagging method. a total of 1155 ticks was removed from the dogs. the majority were ixodes ricinus (88.5%), followed by d. reticulatus (9.1%) and i. hex ...200616524777
synchrony in hunting bags: reaction on climatic and human induced changes?human induced land use changes negatively impact the viability of many wildlife species through habitat modifications and mortality, while some species seem to benefit from it. roe deer (capreolus capreolus), a wide spread ungulate increased both its abundance and range throughout europe. this pattern is also reflected in the increasing hunting bags over the last 40 years. such a development raises questions about the relationship between human hunting and population dynamics and, in particular, ...201424008076
absence of antibodies to foot-and-mouth disease virus in free-ranging roe deer from selected areas of germany (2001-2002).blood samples (n = 223) of free-ranging roe deer (capreolus capreolus) were collected from selected hunting grounds in germany between october 2001 and october 2002. samples originated from lower saxony (n = 43) and north-rhine westphalia (n = 108) within a 20-km area ("cordon") cordoned off along the border of the netherlands. this is adjacent to the area of a foot-and-mouth disease outbreak that occurred between 21 march and 22 april 2001 in the netherlands. negative control samples were taken ...200516244071
monitoring regional fluoride pollution in the saxonian ore mountains (germany) using the biomarker dental fluorosis in roe deer (capreolus capreolus l.).the spatial variation of fluoride contamination in the saxonion part of the ore mountains (federal state of saxony, germany) was assessed by analysing the prevalence and severity of dental fluorosis in wild male roe deer aged 2 years or more (n = 794) from this region. the study area is exposed to increased atmospheric deposition of fluorides, originating from emission sources in the north-bohemian brown coal belt. the severity of dental fluorosis in the permanent premolars and molars of one hem ...199910481292
investigation of roe deer--criteria for use as a bioindicator in specimen banking.some results are given for a 5-year study to establish standard operation procedures for roe deer (capreolus capreolus). the criteria for bioindication of roe deer are listed for three forestry districts in the east of lower saxony (braunschweig, fallersleben, lappwald). the organs investigated for use are liver, kidney, kidney fat, brain and were collected from animals with an intact abdomen and were packed in teflon bags after being shot. the fresh samples are kept at +4 degrees c and prepared ...19938272832
serologic and molecular survey of hepatitis e virus in german deer populations.hepatitis e virus (hev) is a human pathogen that is primarily transmitted by the fecal-oral route and causes a usually self-limiting acute viral hepatitis. the virus is endemic in developing countries of africa, asia, and latin america and is responsible for sporadic cases in industrialized countries. in western europe, an increasing number of autochthonous cases have been associated with zoonotic transmissions of hev from domestic and wild animals. in germany, animal reservoirs for hev have bee ...201626528571
