arthropod-borne agents in wild orinoco geese (neochen jubata) in brazil.although orinoco goose (neochen jubata) is an anatid species widely distributed in south america, scarce are the reports on the occurrence of arthropod-borne pathogens in this avian species. the present work aimed to verify, by serological and molecular methods, the occurrence of haemosporida piroplasmids and anaplasmataceae agents in wild orinoco geese captured in brazil. between 2010 and 2014, 62 blood samples were collected from free-living geese captured in the araguaia river, goiás state, b ...201729127991
serological evidence of exposure to toxoplasma gondii and neospora caninum in free-ranging orinoco goose (neochen jubata) in brazil.toxoplasma gondii and neospora caninum are apicomplexan intracellular protozoan parasites that affect numerous animal species, thus leading to severe diseases and economic losses, depending on the vertebrate species involved. the role of the avian species in maintaining and transmission of these coccidia has been studied for several years as they tend to serve as a potential source of infection for mammals and humans. the present study aimed to assess the serological exposure of orinoco goose (n ...202031618304
east with the night: longitudinal migration of the orinoco goose (neochen jubata) between manú national park, peru and the llanos de moxos, bolivia.we report on the intra-amazonian migration of a pair of orinoco geese (neochen jubata) from manú national park, peru. the species is critically endangered in peru, so a major aim of the study was to aid conservation planning by learning the wet season location of the country's last known breeding population. we captured a breeding pair on october 27, 2010, and fitted the birds with microwave telemetry, inc. gps/argos satellite ptt's. the pair migrated ∼655 km from manú national park to the llano ...201223056512
