Are birds pseudoteeth and denticulations related to touch papilla? An investigation in parrot, goose, and chicken.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Morphologie : bulletin de l'Association des anatomistes [Morphologie] 2023 Jun; Vol. 107 (357), pp. 238-251. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Dec 05.

Abstract: We first studied the morphology and the development of goose denticulations, which develop mainly by a ripple process, and the touch papillae of the bill tip organ, which appears through an evagination process at the end of the beak. During their devel...

Fungal isolation and identification from parrot excreta in northeast Iran: A threat to human health.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Veterinary medicine and science [Vet Med Sci] 2023 May; Vol. 9 (3), pp. 1194-1200. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Apr 04.

Abstract: Background: One of the environmental sources of pathogenic fungi is parrot droppings.Objectives: Thus, this work aimed to investigate fungal contamination in parrots' droppings.Methods: Seventy-nine parrot droppings including Cockatiel, Cockatoo, Green...

The first genomic insight into Chlamydia psittaci sequence type (ST)24 from a healthy captive psittacine host in Australia demonstrates evolutionary proximity with strains from psittacine, human, and equine hosts.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Veterinary microbiology [Vet Microbiol] 2023 May; Vol. 280, pp. 109704. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Feb 23.

Abstract: Chlamydia psittaci is a zoonotic pathogen that infects birds, humans, and other mammals. Notably, recent studies suggested the human-to-human transmission of C. psittaci, and this pathogen also causes equine reproductive loss in Australia. Molecular st...

Inferring the decision rules that drive co-foraging affiliations in wild mixed-species parrot groups.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Philosophical transactions of the Royal Society of London. Series B, Biological sciences [Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci] 2023 Jun 05; Vol. 378 (1878), pp. 20220101. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Apr 17.

Abstract: Animals gathered around a specific location or resource may represent mixed-species aggregations or mixed-species groups. Patterns of individuals choosing to join these groups can provide insight into the information processing underlying these decisio...

Phylogenomic Analysis of the Parrots of the World Distinguishes Artifactual from Biological Sources of Gene Tree Discordance.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Systematic biology [Syst Biol] 2023 May 19; Vol. 72 (1), pp. 228-241.

Abstract: Gene tree discordance is expected in phylogenomic trees and biological processes are often invoked to explain it. However, heterogeneous levels of phylogenetic signal among individuals within data sets may cause artifactual sources of topological disco...

Psittacosis contagion in 1930: an old story in a new era of zoonotic disease.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Microbes and infection [Microbes Infect] 2023 May; Vol. 25 (4), pp. 105076. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Nov 11.

Abstract: The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has highlighted the importance of zoonotic diseases. Psittacosis, a human disease resulting from infection spill-over from Chlamydia psittaci-infected birds, is a lesser-known example of a zoonosis. Psittacosis was responsible f...

Unusual cases of chlamydiosis in psittacine birds.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Veterinary pathology [Vet Pathol] 2023 May; Vol. 60 (3), pp. 360-368. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Mar 23.

Abstract: Avian chlamydiosis is a common disease found in domesticated and nondomesticated avian species caused by several species of chlamydiae including but not limited to Chlamydia psittaci, Chlamydia avium, Chlamydia gallinacea, Chlamydia buteonis, and Chlam...

Heterotopic Ossification Bone Formation in the Frontal Bones of an African Grey Parrot ( Psittacus erithacus ).

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Journal of avian medicine and surgery [J Avian Med Surg] 2023 Mar; Vol. 36 (4), pp. 388-393.

Abstract: A 5-year-old, male African grey parrot ( Psittacus erithacus ) was presented with multiple, slow-growing, firm, bilateral masses around the dorsal orbital rims. Computer tomographic imaging revealed mild, incomplete bridging bone formation on the rostr...

Interpreting past trophic ecology of a threatened alpine parrot, kea Nestor notabilis, from museum specimens.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): The Journal of animal ecology [J Anim Ecol] 2023 Feb; Vol. 92 (2), pp. 273-284. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 May 23.

Abstract: When ecosystems are under severe pressure or environments change, trophic position and intraspecific niche width may decrease or narrow, signalling that conservation action is required. In New Zealand, alpine and subalpine ecosystems have been extensiv...

Social network analysis reveals context-dependent kin relationships in wild sulphur-crested cockatoos Cacatua galerita.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): The Journal of animal ecology [J Anim Ecol] 2023 Jan; Vol. 92 (1), pp. 171-182. Date of Electronic Publication: 2022 Nov 22.

Abstract: A preference to associate with kin facilitates inclusive fitness benefits, and increased tolerance or cooperation between kin may be an added benefit of group living. Many species exhibit preferred associations with kin; however, it is often hard to di...
