AbstractFull Text

A novel atypical porcine pestivirus (APPV), firstly discovered in USA in 2015, was subsequently reported in some countries within Europe and Asia. In this study, a virological survey was performed in central Italy to investigate the presence of APPV genome. One APPV strain was detected in a pig...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to explore different components of avian diversity in two types of urban green areas, parks and cemeteries, in four European countries in relation to environmental characteristics. We studied bird species richness, functional diversity and evolutionary distinctiveness in...

Abstract

Through thousands of years of breeding and strong human selection, the dog (Canis lupus familiaris) exists today within hundreds of closed populations throughout the world, each with defined phenotypes. A singular geographic region with broad diversity in dog breeds presents an interesting...

Abstract

The complete and near-complete genome sequences (7206 nt and 7229 nt) of two wild boar HEV strains detected in Southern Italy were obtained by the next generation sequencing. Phylogenetic analysis and p distance comparisons of one of the strains with HEV-3 reference subtype strains confirmed the...

AbstractFull Text

Canine distemper virus (CDV) is the etiologic agent of distemper in dogs. It exhibits an elevated potential of crossing species barriers, infecting a wide range of wild and domestic carnivores. Of its encoding genes, hemagglutinin (H) shows high heterogeneity, and it was used to determine the...

Abstract

Since the time of Darwin (1859) and Wallace (1869), islands have been regarded by scientists as a prime target for scrutinizing the forces that may influence evolution and diversification and important elements in biogeographic studies. This research aims to scrutinize whether and to what extent...

Abstract

Rotifers are ubiquitous freshwater animals for which many complexes of cryptic species (i.e. distinct species that are morphologically difficult to distinguish) are described. Keratella cochlearis occurs globally and shows a wide phenotypic diversity indicating the potential presence of a species...

Abstract

Repeated arthrocentesis is necessary to diagnose and monitor the evolution of joint diseases, but the procedure may worsen any inflammation and lead to an alteration in synovial fluid. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of repeated arthrocentesis on synovial fluid cytology in healthy ...
