bovine tuberculosis in canadian wildlife: an updated history.mycobacterium bovis infection in wild animals attracted little attention in canada until the disease was almost eliminated from domestic livestock. tuberculosis was endemic in plains bison and occurred in elk, moose, and mule deer in buffalo national park (bnp), alberta during the 1920s and 1930s. bison were moved from bnp to wood buffalo national park (wbnp), where tuberculosis became, and remains, endemic in bison, posing a risk to efforts to restore bison in northern canada. tuberculosis was ...200920119541
potential role of soil properties in the spread of cwd in western canada.chronic wasting disease (cwd) is a horizontally transmissible prion disease of free ranging deer, elk and moose. recent experimental transmission studies indicate caribou are also susceptible to the disease. cwd is present in southeast alberta and southern saskatchewan. this cwd-endemic region is expanding, threatening manitoba and areas of northern alberta and saskatchewan, home to caribou. soil can serve as a stable reservoir for infectious prion proteins; prions bound to soil particles remain ...201624618673
cadmium levels in ontario moose and deer in relation to soil sensitivity to acid precipitation.this study examines the influence of buffering capacity of the soil on the levels of cadmium in the kidney, liver and muscle of moose and white-tailed deer from nine sampling sites (four buffered and five non-buffered) in ontario, canada. tissues collected from hunter-killed moose and deer during 1984 and 1985 were analysed for cadmium. tissue from moose in the non-buffered algonquin park site (21.9 +/- 1.1 mg/kg wet weight) and the buffered st. joseph island site (12.7 +/- 3.2 mg kg-1) had the ...19883381081
alternative prey use affects helminth parasite infections in grey wolves.predators affect prey populations not only through direct predation, but also by acting as definitive hosts for their parasites and completing parasite life cycles. understanding the affects of parasitism on prey population dynamics requires knowing how their predators' parasite community is affected by diet and prey availability. ungulates, such as moose (alces americanus) and white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus), are often important prey for wolves (canis lupus), but wolves also consume ...201627155132
traditional and cultural approaches to childrearing: preventing early childhood caries in norway house cree nation, manitoba.infant health and development is linked to a wide range of interventions including maternal nutrition and infant feeding. early childhood caries (ecc) is a chronic condition that affects large proportions of aboriginal children worldwide. the health of a child's mouth is linked to their overall health and wellbeing and can have a significant impact in their day-to-day experiences of eating, playing, and sleeping. the rates of ecc have increased dramatically and communities, parents, and governme ...201425354082
density-dependent habitat selection and partitioning between two sympatric ungulates.theory on density-dependent habitat selection predicts that as population density of a species increases, use of higher quality (primary) habitat by individuals declines while use of lower quality (secondary) habitat rises. habitat partitioning is often considered the primary mechanism for coexistence between similar species, but how this process evolves with changes in population density remains to be empirically tested for free-ranging ungulates. we used resource-selection functions to quantif ...201424913777
prevalence and geographic distribution of canine and feline blastomycosis in the canadian prairies.this retrospective study reports patient signalment, method of diagnosis and geographic distribution, and examines trends in prevalence and seasonal distribution of blastomycosis cases submitted to a veterinary diagnostic laboratory in saskatchewan over a 21-year period. of the 143 cases that originated from saskatchewan and manitoba 137 were from canine and 6 from feline patients. signalment was similar to that previously reported. all cases originated in southern saskatchewan and manitoba, pri ...201324155475
