redescription of eimeria gazella musaev, 1970 (apicomplexa: eimeriidae) from the arabian gazelle, gazella gazella arabica (artiodactyla: bovidae) in saudi arabia.eimeria gazella musaev, 1970 is redescribed for the first time from the feces of 3 of 6 arabian gazelles, gazella gazella arabica from the riyadh zoo in saudi arabia. oocyst measurements were similar to those reported previously from the goitered gazelle, gazella subgutturosa, in kazakhstan (ussr). except for our observation of many small polar granules, and stieda body, oocyst morphology was identical to the original description of e. gazella.19911844499
antibody prevalence of toxoplasmosis in arabian gazelles and oryx in saudi arabia.we determined the antibody prevalence of toxoplasmosis (toxoplasma gondii infections) in antelopes in saudi arabia. serum samples from 324 gazella subgutturosa marica, 202 gazella gazella, 70 gazella dorcas, and 12 arabian oryx (oryx leucoryx) were tested by the indirect hemagglutination test. antibodies to t. gondii were detected in 13(4.0%) g. subgutturosa marica, 12(5.9%) g. gazella, 3(4.3%) g. dorcas, and in none of the arabian oryx sampled. more adult gazelles were seropositive than juvenil ...19947760490
data on phylogenetic analyses of gazelles (genus gazella) based on mitochondrial and nuclear intron markers.the data provided is related to the article "phylogenetic analyses of gazelles reveal repeated transitions of key ecological traits and provide novel insights into the origin of the genus gazella" [1]. the data is based on 48 tissue samples of all nine extant species of the genus gazella, namely gazella gazella, gazella arabica, gazella bennettii, gazella cuvieri, gazella dorcas, gazella leptoceros, gazella marica, gazella spekei, and gazella subgutturosa and four related taxa (saiga tatarica, a ...201627054158
utility of island populations in re-introduction programmes--relationships between arabian gazelles (gazella arabica) from the farasan archipelago and endangered mainland populations.understanding local adaptation and population differentiation is vital to the success of re-introduction initiatives. as other mammals living on islands, arabian gazelles (g. arabica) show reduced body size on the farasan archipelago, which we corroborated in this study through morphometric analyses of skulls. in the light of the steep population decline on the arabian peninsula – but stable population development on the archipelago – we tested the potential suitability of farasan gazelles as a ...201424834502
wild gazelles of the southern levant: genetic profiling defines new conservation priorities.the mountain gazelle (gazella gazelle), dorcas gazelle (gazella dorcas) and acacia gazelle (gazella arabica acacia) were historically abundant in the southern levant, and more specifically in israel. anthropogenic and natural changes have caused a rapid decline in gazelle populations, raising concerns about their conservation status and future survival. the genetic profile of 111 wild gazelles from israel was determined based on three regions of mitochondrial dna (control region, cytochrome b an ...201525760948
causes of mortality of captive arabian gazelles (gazella arabica) at king khalid wildlife research centre, kingdom of saudi arabia, from 1988 to 2011.we investigated the causes of mortality of the arabian gazelle (gazella arabica) based on the necropsy records of 1218 captive animals at king khalid wildlife research centre, saudi arabia, from 1988 to 2011. the largest number of deaths was attributed to trauma (391, 32.1%). trauma was subdivided into the following three categories: collisions with fences (144, 11.8%); predator activity (91, 7.5%), and exhibit-mate aggression (156, 12.8%). respiratory infection was another important cause of mo ...201525831570
before they are gone - improving gazelle protection using wildlife forensic genetics.throughout their habitats gazelles (genus gazella) face immediate threats due to anthropogenic effects and natural environmental changes. excessive poaching plays a major role in their populations decline. three unique populations of gazelles currently live in israel: mountain gazelle (gazella gazella), dorcas gazelle (gazella dorcas) and acacia gazelle (gazella arabica acacia). ongoing habitat degradation and constant pressure from illegal hunting has caused a continuous decrease in the last 10 ...201627294679
