Multi-isotopic assessments of spatio-temporal diet variability: the case of two sympatric gulls in the western Mediterranean
(Marine Ecology, 2018-11-15)
In predator populations, changes in foraging behaviour in response to spatio-temporal variability of prey are expected. Prey depletion might cause trophic niche widening in generalist species, but not in specialists, which ...
Do humans spread zoonotic enteric bacteria in Antarctica?
(Science of the Total Environment, 2018-10-23)
Reports of enteric bacteria in Antarctic wildlife have suggested its spread from people to seabirds and seals, but evidence is scarce and fragmentary. We investigated the occurrence of zoonotic enteric bacteria in seabirds ...
Population Structure, Antimicrobial Resistance, and Virulence-Associated Genes in Campylobacter jejuni Isolated From Three Ecological Niches: Gastroenteritis Patients, Broilers, and Wild Birds
(Frontiers in Microbiology, 2018-08-02)
Campylobacter jejuni is the causal agent of the food-borne infection with the highest incidence in Europe. Both poultry and wild birds are a major reservoir. To gain insight into the population structure, virulence potential, ...
Supplementary feeding stations for conservation of vultures could be an important source of monophasic Salmonella typhimurium 1,4,,12:i:-
(Science of the Total Environment, 2018-04-27)
Vultures are nature's most successful scavengers, feeding on the carcasses of dead animals present in the field. Availability of domestic carrion has been unstable due to rapidly changing agro-grazing economies and increasing ...
