Seasonal Trend and Distribution of Wire-Snaring Activities and Possible Hotspots in the Sengwa Wildlife Area (SWRA), Zimbabwe

Innocent Mahakata
One salient method of poaching is the use of wire snares to kill wild animals. The study sought to determine seasonal trend and distribution of wire snaring in Sengwa Wildlife Research Area (SWRA) and predict possible seasonal hotspots areas. Presence-only data from law enforcement patrols done by field rangers between January, 2018 and December, 2021 was used. Descriptive statistics was used to establish trend in wire-snare occurrence from 2018 to 2021. Kruskal Wallis test was performed to dete...

Animal Models of Relevance to Dentistry

Mani Deepthi Chitipothu, Deepika Chowdary S., Chandrashekar P., Nii Otu Nartey
Animal experiments are a source of an on-going scientific and non-scientific discussion. Since time immemorial utility of animals for the service of manhood has been practiced. These experimental animal models have distinct advantages because of their ability to reproduce in vivo cellular details and responses occurring in humans. This review addresses various animal models in use for periodontology, oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF) and oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) research work.

Cassava By-Products as Feed for Pigs in Burkina Faso: Production Processes, Nutritive Values and Economic Costs

Timbilfou Kiendrébéogo, Nouhoun Zampaligré, Souleymane Ouédraoogo, Youssouf Mopaté Logténé, Chantal Yvette Kaboré-Zoungrana
Introduction: In Burkina Faso, as in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa, the low availability and high cost of feed is the main limiting factor for pigs’ productivity. While cassava byproducts are well known and used in many countries to overcome this constraint, very little is known on its uses as feed in Burkina Faso. Objective: The study aims to develop processes for the production of pig feeds from cassava leaves and by prod

Juliana Rodrigues Gadelha, Fátima Jesus, Paula Braga Gomes, Jaime Rendón Von Osten, Fernando Morgado, Amadeu Mortágua Velho da Maia Soares
Atlantic and Mediterranean warming-related diseases outbreaks and species shifts recently have been documented. Evaluated tools of short-term effects on the health or organisms resistance are necessary to assess and understand mechanisms affecting marine biodiversity. Until now, climate warming has been studied at the population or community level. Here we offer a better understanding of such phenomena at the individual organism l
