Specimens of Amnestus pusillus were collected in Veneto, Italy, at light. The species is of American origin and, outside its natural range, has been recorded previously from Iran and Asian part of Turkey. The present record is the first for Europe. Key words: Alien species, Burrower Bugs, Amnestus pusillus, Cydnidae, New record, Europe, Italy

Cystic Echinococcosis (CE) surveillance in Italy is based on detection of its larval stage (hydatic cysts) at the slaughterhouse. In northern Italy, a hypo-endemic area, local health authorities investigate each individual farm with positive animals to treat their dogs with cestocidal drugs, but this system is time-consuming and poorly effective fo...

Mesothelioma is a malignant tumor mainly correlated to occupational asbestos exposure. Rare reports describe its occurrence also in animals, mainly linked to asbestos in the environment. Asbestos exposure is demonstrated by the appearance of characteristic histological hallmarks: asbestos containing ferruginous bodies that are iron-based structures...

NECROSCOPIA DELLA LONTRA:CONTRIBUTO METODOLOGICO. Dal 2000 ad oggi nella regione Molise, presso la sede di Campobasso dell'Istituto Zooprofilattico G. Caporale di Teramo, sono state sottoposte a necroscopia n.3 carcasse di lontra euroasiatica (Lutra lutra). L'obbiettivo dell'indagine è quello di standardizzare le procedure di necroscopia e stimolar...

Non-human primate species are considered as good models for human cancer research. Despite the relevant phylogenetic position of prosimians, few reports of neoplastic diseases have been described in these species. The current study investigated implication of an intestinal T-cell lymphoma in a 5-year-old female ring-tailed lemur (Lemur catta) hoste...

The aim of this paper was to determine the topographic distribution of gastritis lesions in pigs through an open source geographic information system (GIS) software analysis. The stomachs of 146 Italian heavy pigs were collected at slaughter and subjected to macroscopic pathological examination of the internal mucosa. A total of 623 lesions were ei...

Riassunto. I dati ecologici, e in particolar modo quelli distributivi, sui carnivori di media e piccola taglia nel Veneto, se si esclude Vulpes vulpes, appaiono scarsi, poco aggiornati e di bassa qualità. In questo panorama scientifico si inserisce la presente indagine di campo, realizzata con il contributo dell’Associazione Faunisti Veneti nell’am...

Ecological data, especially distribution, on medium and small-size Carnivores in the Veneto region appear to be scarce, poorly updated and of low quality. The present field survey was developed with the contribution of the Associazione Faunisti Veneti, within the framework of the Atlas of the Mammals of Veneto. The survey focused on four areas in t...

Il Potamocero (Genere: Potamochoerus), riconosce due specie ben distinte sotto il profilo morfologico e biogeografico: P. larvans e P. porcus. La specie porcus (red river hog) è largamente distribuita in Africa centro-orientale ma è considerata attualmente in decremento numerico (fonte IUCN). Pochi sono i soggetti mantenuti presso giardini zoologic...

In the last decades many researchers investigated parasitic diseases of wildlife, following an ecological approach. Different epidemiological and ecological indexes were developed to assess the stability of the relationship between host and parasite populations, such as the index of aggregation k, the richness index and the importance index (I), wh...

Conventional methods to preserve adult nematodes for taxonomic purposes involve the use of fixative or clearing solutions (alcohol, formaldehyde, AFA and lactophenol), which cause morphological alterations and are toxic. The aim of this study is to propose an alternative method based on glycerol-cryopreservation of nematodes for their subsequent id...

Il tasso (Meles meles), specie appartenente all'ordine Carnivora, presenta adattamento alimentare onnivoro. Malgrado alcuni studi (Kruuk e Parish, 1981; Virgós et al., 2004) abbiano rilevato una notevole specializzazione del tasso euroasiatico nella predazione di lombrichi (Lombricus terrestris), oggi molti autori sono concordi nel ritenere la spec...

While the relationships among seroprevalence to typical causative agents of pneumonia (Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, PRRS and others) and growth rates of pigs in the literature appear weak and/or with a complex interpretation, some authors point out a negative correlation between lung injury and pathologic indices in pig production (growth ). The main...

Anticoagulant rodenticides are widely used in mouse-baits (control plans of Rattus spp. and Mus spp.), in both urban and agricultural environments. Nevertheless, information about the spread of their usage in Italy is lacking. This work is a systematic review (including some meta-analysis aspects) of the available data concerning absorption, metabo...

A severe obstructive thickening of the intestinal wall was revealed in a 5-yr-old female ringtailed lemur (Lemur catta), evaluated for apathy, inappetence and abdominal pain. Intestine and liver histological samples were collected. The histopathology of the intestine samples showed the presence of a malabsorption related-enteritis similar to the hu...

From February 2006 to April 2007, four tigers (Panthera tigris) died at Parco Natura Viva – Garda Zoological Park, Italy. Necropsies of all subjects were performed. Macroscopic and histological exams showed severe nephropathies and in two cases renal lesions are supposed to be the cause of death. Two tigers, a 7 years old female, and a 15 years old...

Roe deer is a great importance species in relation to wildlife management. Ecoparasitological analyses show that the abomasal parasitic burden and host body condition are closely related, but it doesn't exist information about tissue damage induced by these parasites. In this study abomasal anatomopathological patterns are described in association...
