first isolation of mycoplasma capricolum subsp. capricolum, one of the causal agents of caprine contagious agalactia, on the island of lanzarote (spain).during an unusually long period of bad weather, several outbreaks of caprine contagious agalactia (cca) were reported in a number of flocks on the island of lanzarote (canary islands, spain). clinical and subclinical mastitis in lactating goats and some cases of arthritis and pneumonia in kids were observed in the affected flocks. mycoplasma capricolum subsp. capricolum was isolated as the main causal agent of the outbreaks, associated with m. mycoides subsp. mycoides "large colony type" (mmm lc ...200716324858
occurrence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in artisanal palmero cheese smoked with two types of vegetable matter.palmero cheese is a fresh smoked cheese from the isle of palma (canary islands), manufactured with goat's milk. to guarantee its safety, the occurrence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (pah) in artisanal palmero cheese smoked with 2 types of vegetable matter (almond shells and dry prickly pear) was studied. the determination of pah includes extraction and clean-up steps, followed by separation, identification, and quantification of pah by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry in selected ion-m ...200717517711
occurrence and genotype characterization of giardia duodenalis in goat kids from the canary islands, spain.giardia duodenalis (syn. giardia lamblia, giardia intestinalis) is a wide-spread intestinal protozoa of both humans and animals. although giardiosis in goat is commonly asymptomatic, young kids may bear an enteric disease associated with persistent diarrhoea and delayed weight gain. in the present study we have analysed the occurrence of giardia in 315 young goat kids (2-6 months old) from gran canaria island (spain) through visualization of faecal cysts. the identification of genotypes of g. du ...200818436382
goats, birds, and emergent diseases: apparent and hidden effects of exotic species in an island environment.exotic species can have devastating effects on recipient environments and even lead to the outbreak of emergent diseases. we present here several hidden effects that the introduction of goats has had on the lesser short-toed lark, calandrella rufescens, the commonest native bird inhabiting the island of fuerteventura (canary islands). vegetation structure varied with grazing pressure, and indeed, vegetation was all but eradicated from the locality with greatest goat densities, which was also whe ...200919544728
seroprevalence of coxiella burnetii in domestic ruminants in gran canaria island, spain.coxiella burnetii is the causative agent of q fever, a zoonosis with worldwide occurrence. in the canary islands, the overall seroprevalence in humans has been estimated to be 21.5%. gran canaria island concentrates the highest ruminant population in the archipelago and the prevalence of the human infection is 23.5%. to evaluate the seroprevalence in livestock and the affected areas in gran canaria island, a total of 1249 ruminants were randomly selected for this study (733 goats, 369 sheep and ...201020537108
