allozymic and biological characters of trichinella pseudospiralis isolates from free-ranging evaluate biological and biochemical variability in nonencapsulated trichinella isolates, biological and allozymic studies were conducted on isolates of trichinella collected from a raptoral bird (aquila rapax) and a fox (vulpes corsac) in kazakhstan and from a dasyurid marsupial (dasyurus maculatus) on the island of tasmania, australia. allozyme profiles of bird and marsupial isolates showed close similarity with the type isolate of trichinella pseudospiralis. the avian and fox isolates succe ...19921491304
dietary partitioning of australia's two marsupial hypercarnivores, the tasmanian devil and the spotted-tailed quoll, across their shared distributional range.australia's native marsupial fauna has just two primarily flesh-eating 'hypercarnivores', the tasmanian devil (sarcophilus harrisii) and the spotted-tailed quoll (dasyurus maculatus) which coexist only on the island of tasmania. devil populations are currently declining due to a fatal transmissible cancer. our aim was to analyse the diet of both species across their range in tasmania, as a basis for understanding how devil decline might affect the abundance and distribution of quolls through rel ...201729176811
body temperatures and activity patterns of tasmanian devils (sarcophilus harrisii) and eastern quolls (dasyurus viverrinus) through a subalpine winter.during a field study of carnivorous dasyurid marsupials in subalpine tasmania, the trapping success for tasmanian devils (sarcophilus harrisii), but not for spotted-tailed quolls (dasyurus maculatus) or eastern quolls (dasyurus viverrinus), was significantly lower when winter weather conditions turned to sleet or snow or when deep snow lay on the ground. this field study was instigated to determine if devils and eastern quolls spend more time in burrows in severe weather conditions and if they e ...20089231376
phylogeographical population structure of tiger quolls dasyurus maculatus (dasyuridae: marsupialia), an endangered carnivorous marsupial.tiger quolls, dasyurus maculatus, are the largest carnivorous marsupials still extant on the mainland of australia, and occupy an important ecological niche as top predators and scavengers. two allopatric subspecies are recognized, d.m. gracilis in north queensland, and d.m. maculatus in the southeast of the mainland and tasmania. d.m. gracilis is considered endangered while d.m. maculatus is listed as vulnerable to extinction; both subspecies are still in decline. phylogeographical subdivision ...199910583825
