possible differences in pathogenicity between cane toad-, frog- and platypus-derived isolates of mucor amphibiorum, and a platypus-derived isolate of mucor circinelloides.platypuses (ornithorhynchus anatinus) in the north of the island state of tasmania, australia, suffer from a serious disease called ulcerative mycosis, which is responsible for high morbidity and, presumably, mortality rates in areas where it occurs. the disease is caused by the dimorphic fungus mucor amphibiorum, which is also found in queensland, new south wales and victoria. however, it does not cause disease in platypuses in those states. it has been previously reported that a closely relate ...200515832556
salmonelliasis in wildlife from queensland.during a 20 yr period (1978 to 1998), 233 isolates of salmonella spp. were cultured from 179 wildlife animals (representing 25 species), 32 crocodile (crocodylus porosus) eggs and six crocodile nesting sites, and represented 59 different serotypes. salmonella serotype virchow, the major serotype infecting humans in north queensland, (australia) was common in macropodids, but was not found in reptiles and was isolated only once from cane toads (bufo marinus). investigations of human cases of salm ...200111310872
the ecological genetics of introduced populations of the giant toad, bufo marinus. iv. gene flow estimated from admixture in australian populations.allele frequency variation is described at nine polymorphic enzyme loci in 21 samples from populations of the introduced giant toad, bufo marinus, in the region of townsville in north queensland, australia. some of these populations appear to have been established through the introgression of other populations that previously had been isolated. comparisons of allele frequencies at three polymorphic loci between the introgressed populations and the original populations are used to obtain admixtur ...19863084402
