Abstract

Inbreeding depression is widely regarded as a driving force in the evolution of dispersal, mate choice and sperm selection. However, due to likely costs of inbreeding avoidance, which are poorly understood, it is unclear to what extent selection to avoid inbreeding is expected in nature. Moreover,...

Abstract

Background: There are clear differences between donkeys and horses in their evolutionary history, physiology, behaviour and husbandry needs. Donkeys are often kept in climates that they are not adapted to and as such may suffer impaired welfare unless protection from the elements is provided....

Abstract

A two-part series on the approach to dry cow therapy was previously published in In Practice (Green and others 2002, Bradley and others 2003), and these articles covered much of the relevant science known at the time of publication. Internal teat sealants (iTS) were in their infancy when these...

Abstract

Background: Genomic methods have proved to be important tools in the analysis of genetic diversity across the range of species and can be used to reveal processes underlying both short- and long-term evolutionary change. This study applied genomic methods to investigate population structure and...

Abstract

People have obligations to ensure the welfare of animals under their care. Offences under the UK Animal Welfare Act are acts, or failures of action, causing unnecessary suffering. Veterinary professionals need to be able to provide current, scientifically based prophylactic advice, and respect the...

Abstract

Increasing levels of antimicrobial resistance in human and veterinary medicine have raised concerns around the issue of overprescribing and the indiscriminate use of antimicrobials. Their use in food producing animals is under scrutiny due to the perceived risk from the zoonotic transfer of...

Abstract

ALV-J has caused the most serious losses to the poultry industry in China. The gp85-coding sequence of ALV-J is known to be prone to mutation, but any association between the gp85 gene and breed of chicken remains unclear. A comprehensive and systematic study of the evolutionary process of ALV-J in ...

Abstract

We determined the complete genome sequence of a sacbrood virus (SBV) infecting Indian honey bee (Apis cerana indica) from Tamil Nadu, India named as AcSBV-IndTN1. The genome of AcSBV-IndTN1 comprised of 8740 nucleotides, encoding a single large ORF containing 2849 amino acids flanked by 5′ and 3′...
