Article
Full-text available
The interactions between wild and captive populations of Asian elephants (Elephas maximus) persist in most countries of the species distribution, notably through the reproduction between captive females and wild males. However, these complex interactions have been poorly studied, despite their relevance for conservation of this endangered species....

Asian elephants Elephas maximus have been captured and trained by Lao mahouts for centuries. While captive elephants are losing their traditional relevance, they still play a significant role in the Lao logging and tourism industries. However, with only an estimated 480 captive elephants remaining nationally and only ?60 cows under 35 yr of age, th...
Article
Full-text available
Few empirical studies have described social‐ecological systems (SESs) in transition. Some studies focused on external drivers that impact the SES and communities' responses to adapt to changes, including economic, land and conservation policies. Others have considered the effect of social and cultural changes on communities' capacity to sustain the...
Article
Full-text available
Elephant endotheliotropic herpesviruses (EEHVs) may cause acute, often lethal, hemor-rhagic disease (EEHV-HD) in young elephants. Prevalence of EEHV in different elephant populations is still largely unknown. In order to improve diagnostic tools for the detection of EEHV infections and to obtain insight into its spread among elephants, we developed...

Elephant endotheliotropic herpesviruses (EEHVs) are a group of evolutionary divergent herpesviruses that may cause acute, often lethal, hemorrhagic disease (EEHV-HD) in young elephants. Although EEHV was first discovered over 20 years ago, its prevalence in different elephant populations is still largely unknown, partially due to the lack of readil...

1.Relationships between humans and Asian elephants have lasted for millenia, based on close interlinks between wild elephants, captive elephants, and the latter’s human masters. Since the beginning of the 19th century, elephants have been used mainly in agroforestry as draught animals. Interrelations between wild and captive populations persist in...

The relationship between human and Asian elephant has been lasting for millennia. Since the 19th century, elephants have been used mainly in agroforestry as draught animals. The interrelations between wild and captive populations persist in most countries, notably through captive females reproducing with wild males. Such situation is challenging th...
Thesis
Full-text available
Depuis des millénaires, l’éléphant d’Asie joue un rôle important dans la culture, l’économie et la construction des pays asiatiques. Près d’un quart de la population de cette espèce emblématique et menacée est constituée d’éléphants dits captifs. Toutefois, les législations nationales comme les programmes de conservation ont tendance à traiter sépa...

Question
As an alternative to Genemapper, I am considering using open-source OSIRIS 2-13 from NCBI to analyse electrophoresis data. However I did not find a very useful function from Genemapper that allows you to display graphs showing a same channel for several samples on a multi-framed plot.
In Osiris you can easily display the different channels from one sample, but not one channel for several samples at the same time.
When scoring and checking alleles for a specific primer, i found essential to see multiple graphs of the same primer and being able to scroll them down easily. Did someone has a clue ? Thanks Gilles
