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
assessing regional variation of environmental fluoride concentrations in western germany by analysis of antler fluoride content in roe deer (capreolus capreolus).to assess regional variation in ambient fluoride levels, we analyzed the fluoride content of 188 antlers of roe deer (capreolus capreolus) killed between 1990 and 1999 in 14 areas of the federal state of north rhine-westphalia, germany. individual antler fluoride concentrations ranged between 113 and 11,995 mg x f-/kg bone ash, and sample means differed significantly (p < 0.0001) among the study areas. low average concentrations (geometric means of 262 and 277 mg x f-/kg bone ash, respectively) ...200211706374
temporal and geographical variation in skeletal fluoride content of roe deer (capreolus capreolus) from industrialized areas in order to study temporal and spatial variation of environmental fluoride levels, we analyzed the mandibular bone fluoride content of 157 roe deer (age range: 1-11 years) from two industrialized regions (ruhr area: n = 76, sampling period 1955-1998; area w of cologne: n = 81, sampling period 1983 1998) in the federal state of north rhine-westphalia, germany. bone fluoride values (dry weight basis) ranged between 150 mg f/kg (2 year-old specimen taken in 1997) and 5724 mg f/kg (10 year-old speci ...200011048666
