Abstract

Natural selection in domestic dogs is of great interest in evolutionary biology since dogs have migrated to every inhabited continent of the world alongside humans, and adapted to diverse environments. Here, we explored their demographic history and genetic basis of adaptation to the tropical...

Abstract

African swine fever (ASF) is a complex infectious disease of swine that constitutes devastating impacts on animal health and the world economy. Here, we investigated the evolutionary epidemiology of ASF virus (ASFV) in Eurasia and Africa using the concatenated gene sequences of the viral protein 72 ...

Abstract

Wild ducks and gulls are the major reservoirs for avian influenza A viruses (AIVs). The mechanisms that drive AIV evolution are complex at sites where various duck and gull species from multiple flyways breed, winter, or stage. The Republic of Georgia is located at the intersection of three...

Abstract

The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus, family: Felidae order: Carnivora) was once widely distributed across Africa and Asia but has been extirpated from a large portion of this area. Major threats are considered to be habitat loss and fragmentation, competition with other carnivore species, their killing...

Abstract

Peste-des-petits ruminants (PPR) is one of the most important infectious diseases of domesticated small ruminants. From the initial identification in 1942 in West Africa, PPR virus (PPRV) has spread throughout much of the developing world. PPRV is now considered endemic throughout Africa, with the...

Abstract

The recent discovery of genetically distinct hantaviruses in multiple species of shrews and moles prompted a further exploration of their host diversification by analyzing frozen, ethanol-fixed and RNAlater®-preserved archival tissues and fecal samples from 533 bats (representing seven families, 28 ...

Abstract

Despite safe and efficacious vaccines against peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV), this virus has emerged as the cause of a highly contagious disease with serious economic consequences for small ruminant agriculture across Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. We used complete and partial genome...

Abstract

The cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) has been described as a species with low levels of genetic variation. This has been suggested to be the consequence of a demographic bottleneck 10000-12000 years ago (ya) and also led to the assumption that only small genetic differences exist between the described...

Abstract

In the mosquito Culex pipiens, over-production of esterases is a common insecticide resistance mechanism. Different alleles at the esterase A and B loci are known to occur in natural populations, as shown by enzyme electrophoresis and RFLP studies on the esterase B locus. The authors analysed the...

Abstract

The results of laboratory studies on Aedes pseudalbopictus (from Taiwan), A. seatoi (from Thailand) and 6 strains of A. albopictus (from Malaysia, Thailand, Korea, Indonesia, Mauritius and Madagascar) were found to support the contention that selection for reinforcement of ethological isolation can ...
