the first isolation of aspergillus allahabadii from a cormorant with pulmonary this study, we report the first isolation of aspergillus allahabadii from a japanese cormorant with pulmonary aspergillosis. we performed molecular identification and antifungal susceptibility testing with the e-test. a 7-month-old male cormorant died because of uric acid deposition secondary to dehydration. whitish nodular lesions were present on the caudal thoracic air sac in the right thoracic cavity. histopathology revealed multifocal pyogranulomatous necrotic lesions with numerous fungal ...201627904055
intersexual differences in the diving behaviour of foraging subantarctic cormorant (phalacrocorax albiventer) and japanese cormorant (p. filamentosus).cormorants feed by feet-propelled diving. how cormorants optimize foraging is of a particular interest in relation to the understanding of the feeding strategies of diving birds, as well as within the debate about cormorants' impact on sustainable resources. using microdata loggers that recorded diving depth, we investigated the foraging strategy of males and females of subantarctic cormorants, which inhabit cold regions, and of japanese cormorants, which live in the northern temperate zone. for ...199910488429
polymorphism of dopamine receptor d4 exon i corresponding region in stockbreeding, there are indications that behavioral traits of livestock have an effect on breeding and production. if the variation in individual behavior is related to that in neurotransmitter-related genes such as in humans, it would be possible to breed pedigrees composed of individuals having behavioral traits that are useful to production and breeding using selection based on genotypes. in this study, we investigated the exon i region of dopamine receptor d4 (drd4), in which variation i ...200415459452
