aeromonas and plesiomonas species from scarlet ibis (eudocimus ruber) and their environment: monitoring antimicrobial susceptibility and virulence.the present study aimed at evaluating the role of captive scarlet ibises (eudocimus ruber) and their environment as reservoirs of aeromonas spp. and plesiomonas spp., and analyzing the in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility and virulence of the recovered bacterial isolates. thus, non-lactose and weak-lactose fermenting, oxidase positive gram-negative bacilli were recovered from cloacal samples (n = 30) of scarlet ibises kept in a conservational facility and from water samples (n = 30) from their ...201727885558
thromboelastography in selected avian species.currently available assay methods and reagents are not optimized for evaluating avian hemostasis; therefore, assessing avian coagulopathies is challenging. recently, thromboelastography (teg), which measures the viscoelastic properties of blood, has been used clinically in mammalian species to diagnose and characterize hemostatic disorders. to evaluate teg in healthy individuals of 6 avian species, we modified existing mammalian teg protocols to allow analysis of citrated, avian whole-blood samp ...201526771317
the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of eudocimus ruber (pelecaniformes:threskiornithidae).the eudocimus ruber (scarlet ibis) belongs to the bird order pelecaniformes. here, we sequenced the mitochondrial genome of e. ruber. the complete mitochondrial genome of e. ruber is 16 697 bp in length and contains 22 trna genes, 2 rrna genes, 13 protein-coding genes and a non-coding control region. consistent with other sequenced birds, most genes are encoded on the heavy strand, except for nd6 and 8 trna genes. the overall base composition of the e. ruber is 30.8% a, 30.8% c, 13.8%g and 24.6% ...201626099973
behavioral, morphological and physiological correlates of diurnal and nocturnal vision in selected wading bird species.we examined in selected wading bird species if diurnal or nocturnal foraging and the use of visual or tactile feeding strategies could be correlated with retinal structure and function. the selected species were the yellow-crowned night heron (nycticorax violaceus), a crepuscular and nocturnal forager, the great blue heron (ardea herodias), a mainly crepuscular, but also diurnal and nocturnal feeder, the roseate spoonbill (ajaia ajaja), a mainly crepuscular feeder which forages more at night tha ...199910473901
investigation into cardiovascular assessment of captive adult scarlet ibis (eudocimus ruber).cardiovascular lesions are commonly diagnosed postmortem in scarlet ibis (eudocimus ruber), but antemortem diagnosis is rare. the aim of this study was to evaluate the cardiovascular health of a zoo population (n = 44) of apparently healthy, adult, scarlet ibis. a cross-sectional study design was employed whereby each animal was manually restrained for physical examination, phlebotomy, and echocardiographic examination performed with a 12-mhz transducer and a ventromedial approach, and observed ...201931120678

bill impaction in a group of captive caribbean flamingos (phoenicopterus ruber ruber).flamingos are filter feeders that only rarely ingest larger food items. their bill anatomy is adapted to the suction, filtration, and ejection of a fluid medium. this case report documents a rare case of bill impaction in a group of caribbean flamingos (phoenicopterus ruber) that were kept in a mixed exhibit together with roseate spoonbills (platalea ajaja) and scarlet ibis (eudocimus ruber). the latter species received fatty minced meat as part of their diet, which was also accessible to the fl ...200717939357
phenology of body mass changes during reproduction in a nomadic, tropical waterbird, the scarlet ibis (eudocimus ruber).in birds, the prereproductive buildup of endogenous energy reserves (e.g. body fat) is highly variable and is often thought to be a strategy evolving in response to either seasonal and/or unpredictable changes in breeding conditions. nomadic behavior is also thought to be an adaptation to unpredictable resource distribution in both space and time. because of the difficultly in obtaining a longitudinal time series of body masses for free-living individuals of highly nomadic species, the relations ...200819360630
variation in carotenoid-protein interaction in bird feathers produces novel plumage coloration.light absorption by carotenoids is known to vary substantially with the shape or conformation of the pigment molecule induced by the molecular environment, but the role of interactions between carotenoid pigments and the proteins to which they are bound, and the resulting impact on organismal coloration, remain unclear. here, we present a spectroscopic investigation of feathers from the brilliant red scarlet ibis (eudocimus ruber, threskiornithidae), the orange-red summer tanager (piranga rubra, ...201222832362
