feline leukemia virus and other pathogens as important threats to the survival of the critically endangered iberian lynx (lynx pardinus).background: the iberian lynx (lynx pardinus) is considered the most endangered felid species in the world. in order to save this species, the spanish authorities implemented a captive breeding program recruiting lynxes from the wild. in this context, a retrospective survey on prevalence of selected feline pathogens in free-ranging lynxes was initiated. methodology/ principal findings: we systematically analyzed the prevalence and importance of seven viral, one protozoan (cytauxzoon felis), and s ...200919270739
exposure to disease agents in the endangered iberian lynx (lynx pardinus).the iberian lynx (lynx pardinus) is the most endangered felid species in the world. lynx populations have decreased dramatically in size and distribution in the last four decades, thus becoming increasingly vulnerable to catastrophic events such as epizooties. from 1989 to 2000, serum samples were obtained from 48 free-ranging lynx captured in the doñana national park (dnp, nā€‰=ā€‰31) and mountains of sierra morena (sm, nā€‰=ā€‰17) in southern spain. samples were tested for antibodies against toxoplasm ...200832214935
global mammal parasite database version 2.0.illuminating the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of parasites is one of the most pressing issues facing modern science, and is critical for basic science, the global economy, and human health. extremely important to this effort are data on the disease-causing organisms of wild animal hosts (including viruses, bacteria, protozoa, helminths, arthropods, and fungi). here we present an updated version of the global mammal parasite database, a database of the parasites of wild ungulates (artioda ...201728273333
