(v. i.) Any one of numerous species of small rodents belonging to the genus Sciurus and several allied genera of the family Sciuridae. Squirrels generally have a bushy tail, large erect ears, and strong hind legs. They are commonly arboreal in their habits, but many species live in burrows.
(v. i.) One of the small rollers of a carding machine which work with the large cylinder.
(1) One thousand nineteen Wyoming ground squirrels (Spermophilus elegans elegans) from 4 populations in southern Wyoming were examined for intestinal parasites.
(2) Recordings were made from secondary vestibular axons in the medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF) of barbiturate-anesthetized squirrel monkeys.
(3) Squirrel monkeys trained to respond under a schedule in which each response postponed the delivery of electric shock developed a steady rate of responding.
(4) An isolated colony of red squirrels at Formby , Merseyside, were decimated by an outbreak of squirrelpox in 2008 , which saw the population crash by 85% to less than 200 squirrels.
(5) When the position and size of injection sites were compared to distribution of retrogradely labeled olivary somata, it was clear that zones A, B, C1, C2, C3 and D were present in lobules IV and V of squirrel monkey.
(6) Noninvasive temperature measurements in live squirrel monkeys under similar exposure conditions were obtained using Vitek probes.
(7) We have compared the ability of drugs to induce chewing and retching or emesis in squirrel monkeys; such studies are not possible in rodents, which do not vomit.
(8) Serum glucose values were significantly higher in the diabetic ground squirrels than in the non-diabetic ground squirrels, while serum insulin values of fasted diabetic squirrels were significantly lower than fasted nondiabetic ground squirrels.
(9) I have had the awe-inducing pleasure of standing alone among the giant trees, both sequoias and redwoods, and hearing nothing but the chatter of the squirrels and the high wind in the tallest branches.
(10) Both drugs increased fixed interval responding in squirrel monkeys; MA was more efficacious than NNDMA.
(11) The present experimental results in squirrel monkeys contradict the previously reported high incidence of ear cartilage regeneration in young rabbits and may reflect a difference in surgical technique, animal species, or animal age.
(12) A viral agent was isolated from ground squirrel primary kidney cultures which presented a spontaneous cell layer alteration.
(13) Signing a "squirrel accord" after meetings at one of his stately homes, the prince reaffirmed his desire to drive grey squirrels out of the UK in order to save our "much loved" native red squirrels .
(14) Squirrel monkeys controlled the air temperature within their test chamber by pulling a chain to select between two preset air temperatures, 10 and 50 degrees C. When the force required to pull the chain was increased in steps from 2.94 to 6.86 N, interresponse interval increased, resulting in wider air temperature swings within the chamber.
(15) In areas where there are lots of pine martens, there are lots of red squirrels," she said.
(16) The first way in which SmI of squirrels differs from the organization reported for other mammals is that SmI of squirrels contains a double representation of the hand and parts of the forearm.
(17) In order to determine the most suitable cage environment for the squirrel monkey, a series of studies were carried out to compare various perch materials and cage configurations.
(18) Tumors developed in seven squirrels after a minimum of 2.4 years of observation per animal; each of the seven animals was over 4 years old when the tumor was detected.
(19) The possible mechanisms in regulation of the respiration rate of mitochondria from liver of hibernating ground squirrels have been investigated.
(20) In this study, human, squirrel monkey, and cat temporal bone sections were examined by light microscopy for the presence of glomus bodies, and the anatomy and distribution of glomus bodies in the temporal bone is described.
