    The article presents the outbreak of the contagious agalactia syndrome (CAS) in the Iberian ibex (Capra pyrenaica) population in Spain's Sierra Nevada mountain range in 1998. It claims that CAS is a highly infectious sheep disease that is mainly caused by mycoplasma agalactiae in both sheep and...

    We have investigated the prevalence of infection with different pathogens in domestic goat ( Capra hircus) and Iberian ibex ( Capra pyrenaica hispanica) populations from two neighbouring geographical zones (with or without cohabitation between wild and domestic species) in Spain. No ibexes were...

    In an analysis of a microsatellite locus (OLADRB1) linked to the MHC DRB1 gene of Iberian and Alpine ibex ( Capra pyrenaica and Carpa ibex), we detected strong linkage disequilibrium between both loci. The allele length polymorphism at OLADRB1 was unambiguously linked to a particular DRB1...

    Background: Both parasitic load and resource availability can impact individual fitness, yet little is known about the interplay between these parameters in shaping body condition, a key determinant of fitness in wild mammals inhabiting seasonal environments. Methods: Using partial least square...

J.; León-Vizcaíno, L. // Veterinary Record: Journal of the British Veterinary Association;8/4/2007, Vol. 161 Issue 5, p167 

    The article cites a study of the role of the Spanish ibex as a host for various Mycoplasma species. The survey was carried in a diverse metapopulations of Spanish ibex in Andalusia, Spain between 1996 and 1998 using 321 animals randomly sampled. The survey revealed that Mycoplasma agalactiae was...

    Background: Genetic differentiation in historically connected populations could be the result of genetic drift or adaptation, two processes that imply a need for differing strategies in population management. The aim of our study was to use neutral genetic markers to characterize C. pyrenaica...

  • Acute phase proteins increase with sarcoptic mange status and severity in Iberian ibex ( Capra pyrenaica, Schinz 1838). Ráez-Bravo, Arián; Granados, José; Cerón, José; Cano-Manuel, Francisco; Fandos, Paulino; Pérez, Jesús; Espinosa, José; Soriguer, Ramón; López-Olvera, Jorge // Parasitology Research;Nov2015, Vol. 114 Issue 11, p4005 

    Sarcoptic mange is a contagious skin disease caused by Sarcoptes scabiei, affecting both domestic and wild mammals, including the Iberian ibex ( Capra pyrenaica), a medium-sized mountain ungulate almost endemic to the Iberian Peninsula. Acute phase proteins (APPs) could be an indicator of...

  • Is nursing a kid detrimental to nonimmunological compatibility to contact-transmitted foreign bodies in female Iberian ibex ( Capra pyrenaica)?  // Canadian Journal of Zoology;Oct2012, Vol. 90 Issue 10, p1284 

    Reproductive costs may increase the susceptibility of breeding females to parasites. Compatibility may be modulated by immunity and nonimmunological factors. However, experimental tests attempting to unravel the role of nonimmunological compatibility to parasites are scarce. We experimentally...

  • Reliability of an ELISA Test for Diagnosing Oestrosis in Iberian Ibex. Arias, María Sol; Moreno, Virginia; Sarasa, Mathieu; Paz-Silva, Adolfo; Sánchez-Andrade, Rita; Morrondo, Patrocinio; Díez-Baños, Pablo; Granados, José E.; Sánchez, Antonio; Pérez, Jesús M. // Journal of Parasitology;Apr2014, Vol. 100 Issue 2, p235 

    Oestrosis is one of the most prevalent parasitosis affecting the Iberian ibex, Capra pyrenaica. To date, both the diagnosis of oestrosis and the determination of the intensity of parasitism require the use of invasive methods (necropsy), which necessarily limit research possibilities. We...
