the geographic distribution and host range of capillaria hepatica (bancroft) (nematoda) in australia.the geographic distribution, host range and prevalence of capillaria hepatica were recorded in 4629 house mice, mus domesticus, 263 black rats, rattus rattus, and 58 norway rats, r. norvegicus. the parasite was found at five localities, all in or near large towns along the coast. the two rattus species appeared to be the primary hosts of c. hepatica in australia. published and unpublished data on helminth infections of australian native mammals from 1162 murids (26 species), 3018 marsupials (67 ...19911787037
coccidia of domestic and feral goats in south australia.faecal samples were examined from 497 domestic and 318 feral goats in south australia. oocysts of eimeria species were detected in 97% of the domestic goats and 3% of the feral goats. the species of eimeria identified from domestic goats (and their prevalences) were e. hirci (82%), e. arloingi (81%), e. ninakohlyakimovae (51%), e. alijevi (49%), e. caprina (32%), e. christenseni (29%), e. caprovina (12%), e. jolchijevi (9%) and e. apsheronica (6%). two of these species, e. caprina and e. jolchij ...19892728316
rasch scaling paranormal belief and experience: structure and semantics of thalbourne's australian sheep-goat scale.research on the relation between demographic variables and paranormal belief remains controversial given the possible semantic distortions introduced by item and test level biases. we illustrate how rasch scaling can be used to detect such biases and to quantify their effects, using the australian sheep-goal scale as a substantive example. based on data from 1.822 respondents, this test was rasch scalable, reliable, and unbiased at the test level. consistent with other research in which unbiased ...200212585514
molecular epidemiology of mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis: is900 restriction fragment length polymorphism and is1311 polymorphism analyses of isolates from animals and a human in australia.the distribution and prevalence of strains of mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis were determined among sheep, cattle, and other species with johne's disease in australia. a total of 328 isolates were evaluated from numerous farms in new south wales, victoria, tasmania, and south australia, australia. restriction fragment length polymorphism (rflp) analysis of genomic dna using bsteii and an is900 probe and is1311 polymorphism analysis using pcr and restriction endonuclease analysis (pcr ...200010970365
ovulatory activity, hormonal induction of ovulation and fertility of young cashmere and angora female goats in a temperate environment.reproductive parameters of young cashmere and angora goats born between 1988 and 1990 and grazed on temperate pastures in southern australia were examined with a view to reducing the age of first breeding. females born in august or october of 1989 and 1990 were examined each month by laparoscopy to determine natural ovulatory activity when 6-19-months old. cashmeres commenced ovulating as young as 7 months of age or as light as 12 kg. almost all cashmeres were ovulating by 8-10 months of age at ...19947624515
salmonellosis in transported feral outbreak of acute diarrhoea and deaths was investigated in a group of 1,016 feral goats of varying ages, on a 400 hectare gippsland pine plantation. the goats had recently been captured in north western new south wales and transported by truck to melbourne, victoria, a journey of 20 to 25 hours, and maintained in holding yards for up to 10 days. they were then transported for a further 3 hours, and released in the gippsland plantation. within 1 to 2 weeks of release many goats developed acute ...19817342946

caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus infection of goats in south australia.caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus (caev) infection of dairy goats was shown by virus isolation and serology to be widespread in south australia. caev was isolated at necropsy from 24 of 27 dairy goats with swollen joints from 13 herds, and from 9 of 30 liver dairy goats in 7 herds. virus was isolated most frequently from synovial membranes, and occasionally from mammary glands, mammary lymph nodes, choroid plexus, lungs, spleen, bone marrow, salivary glands, leucocytes, synovial fluid and mil ...19872827619
