hydrological features and the ecological niches of mammalian hosts delineate elevated risk for ross river virus epidemics in anthropogenic landscapes in australia.the current understanding of the landscape epidemiology of ross river virus (rrv), australia's most common arthropod-borne pathogen, is fragmented due to gaps in surveillance programs and the relatively narrow focus of the research conducted to date. this leaves public health agencies with an incomplete understanding of the spectrum of infection risk across the diverse geography of the australian continent. the current investigation sought to assess the risk of rrv epidemics based on abiotic and ...201829554980
serological evidence for the presence of wobbly possum disease virus in australia.wobbly possum disease virus (wpdv) is an arterivirus that was originally identified in common brushtail possums (trichosurus vulpecula) in new zealand, where it causes severe neurological disease. in this study, serum samples (n = 188) from australian common brushtail, mountain brushtail (trichosurus cunninghami) and common ringtail (pseudocheirus peregrinus) possums were tested for antibodies to wpdv using elisa. antibodies to wpdv were detected in possums from all three species that were sampl ...202032750064
skin structure in newborn marsupials with focus on cutaneous gas exchange.a morphological and morphometric study of the skin of a variety of newborn marsupials (dasyurus viverrinus, monodelphis domestica, trichosurus vulpecula, isoodon obesulus, perameles nasuta, phascolarctos cinereus, potorous tridactylus, petrogale penicillata, thylogale thetidi, macropus dorsalis) and of a monotreme hatchling (ornithorhynchus anatinus) was undertaken to assess the possibility of cutaneous gas exchange. additionally, the lungs of some of these species were investigated to assess it ...201829947022
culture of marsupial oocytes and conceptuses.marsupial oocytes and conceptuses provide special challenges to scientists wanting to develop reliable in vitro techniques. yet these techniques are essential to the study of development. such techniques also provide tools to help prevent further decline in marsupial biodiversity using assisted reproductive technology. specific marsupial characters have made development of in vitro techniques difficult. some of these are the high-energy requirements of cleavage and blastocyst formation and maint ...201931230288

uterine epithelial remodelling during pregnancy in the marsupial monodelphis domestica (didelphidae): implications for mammalian placental evolution.mammalian pregnancy involves remodelling of the uterine epithelium to enable placentation. in marsupials, such remodelling has probably played a key role in the transition from ancestral invasive placentation to non-invasive placentation. identifying uterine alterations that are unique to marsupials with non-invasive placentation can thus elucidate mechanisms of marsupial placental evolution. we identified apical alterations to uterine epithelial cells prior to implantation in monodelphis domest ...202032052440
chronic excess fluoride uptake contributes to degenerative joint disease (djd): evidence from six marsupial of the manifestations of chronic fluoride toxicosis in mammals is skeletal fluorosis, which can include lesions of degenerative joint disease (djd). although djd lesions have been less commonly studied than bone or dental lesions in relation to the pathology and epidemiology of fluoride toxicosis, there have been multiple independent studies in various species that have concluded that there appears to be an effect. the mechanisms by which fluoride affects the joints are not clear, but our da ...201830015183
molecular surveillance of piroplasms in ticks from small and medium-sized urban and peri-urban mammals in australia.natural landscape alterations as a consequence of urbanisation are one of the main drivers in the movements of wildlife into metropolitan and peri-urban areas. worldwide, these wildlife species are highly adaptable and may be responsible for the transmission of tick-borne pathogens including piroplasms (babesia, theileria and cytauxzoon spp.) that cause piroplasmosis in animals and occasionally in humans. little is known about piroplasms in the ticks of urban wildlife in australia. ticks from lo ...201829988853
overlapping den tree selection by three declining arboreal mammal species in an australian tropical savanna.tree cavities are important denning sites for many arboreal mammals. knowledge of cavity requirements of individual species, as well as potential den overlap among species, is integral to their conservation. in australia's tropical savannas, development of tree cavities is enhanced by high termite activity, and, conversely, reduced by frequent fires. however, it is poorly understood how the availability of tree cavities in the tropical savannas impacts tree cavity use and selection by cavity-dep ...202033033470
vulpeculin: a novel and abundant lipocalin in the urine of the common brushtail possum, trichosurus vulpecula.lipocalins are a family of secreted proteins. they are capable of binding small lipophilic compounds and have been extensively studied for their role in chemosignalling in rodent urine. urine of the common brushtail possum (trichosurus vulpecula) contains a prominent glycoprotein of 20 kda, expressed in both sexes. we have isolated this protein and determined its primary sequence by mass spectrometry, including the use of metabolic labelling to resolve the leucine/isoleucine isobaric ambiguity. ...202033022194

the mixed liver and heart transcriptome dataset of the new zealand brushtail possum, trichosurus zealand suffers greatly from invasive mammal predators including rats, stoats, feral cats and possums all of which not only damage or prey on new zealand's unique terrestrial biodiversity, but also have huge impact on nz's economy as many of these pests act as vectors of disease to farm and game animals. as such, the nz government has invested nearly $90 m to support an ambitious plan to make the country predator free by 2050. although there are adequate means to control invasive predator po ...201931700950
a spatial open-population capture-recapture model.a spatial open-population capture-recapture model is described that extends both the non-spatial open-population model of schwarz and arnason and the spatially explicit closed-population model of borchers and efford. the superpopulation of animals available for detection at some time during a study is conceived as a two-dimensional poisson point process. individual probabilities of birth and death follow the conventional open-population model. movement between sampling times may be modeled with ...202031517386
estimating disease survey intensity and wildlife population size from the density of survey devices: leg-hold traps and the brushtail possum.wildlife disease surveillance requires accurate information on the proportion of managed populations sampled or their population density, parameters that are typically expensive to measure. however, these parameters can be estimated using spatially explicit modelling of capture probabilities, based on the distribution and deployment times of capture devices, given accurate information on the relationships between these variables. this approach is used in new zealand's surveillance programme aime ...201830314786
viral rna load and histological changes in tissues following experimental infection with an arterivirus of possums (wobbly possum disease virus).tissues from australian brushtail possums (trichosurus vulpecula) that had been experimentally infected with wobbly possum disease (wpd) virus (wpdv) were examined to elucidate pathogenesis of wpdv infection. mononuclear inflammatory cell infiltrates were present in livers, kidneys, salivary glands and brains of wpd-affected possums. specific staining was detected by immunohistochemistry within macrophages in the livers and kidneys, and undefined cell types in the brains. the highest viral rna l ...201830014860
visit, consume and quit: patch quality affects the three stages of foraging.foraging is a three-stage process during which animals visit patches, consume food and quit. foraging theory exploring relative patch quality has mostly focused on patch use and quitting decisions, ignoring the first crucial step for any forager: finding food. yet, the decision to visit a patch is just as important as the decision to quit, as quitting theories can only be used if animals visit patches in the first place. therefore, to better understand the foraging process and predict its outcom ...201829995984
next generation sequencing reveals widespread trypanosome diversity and polyparasitism in marsupials from western western australia a number of indigenous trypanosoma spp. infect susceptible native marsupials, such as the woylie (bettongia penicillata), brushtail possum (trichosurus vulpecula), and chuditch (dasyurus geoffroii). two genotypes of trypanosoma copemani (identified as g1 and g2) have been found in the woylie, and g2 has been implicated in the decline of this host species, making its presence of particular interest. here we used targeted amplicon next generation sequencing (ngs) of the trypan ...201829988778
