(1) A study was carried out to determine the effect on the reproductive performance of female Glossina morsitans morsitans Westwood when allowed to feed, in vitro, for 63 days on fresh defibrinated blood of buffalo, bushbuck, cattle, eland, oryx, warthog, waterbuck or wildebeest.
(2) The course of experimental infection of a type SAT 1 FMDV strain was studied in buffalo, sable antelope and eland following tongue inoculation and contact and has been compared with that in cattle.
(3) The cattle recovered from the Theileria species (eland) were fully susceptible to a lethal challenge of a T. parva (Muguga) stabilate.
(4) Theileria infections were induced in cattle by feeding ticks on them from 3 sources: (a) adult rhipicephalid ticks obtained from the vegetation in a paddock containing an eland EAO at the Animal Orphanage, Nairobi National Park, Kenya, (b) Rhipicephalus appendiculatus adults fed as nymphs on the same eland, (c) R. pulchellus adults fed as nymphs on an eland W 68 captured in the Machakos district of Kenya.
(5) In contrast, attempts to transmit the Theileria of wildebeest and eland to cattle through rhipicephalid ticks failed, despite the establishment of these parasites of the ticks.
(6) Both eland were harbouring Theileria parasites at the time nymphal ticks were fed.
(7) Pronounced, disperse, chronic, multinodular folliculitis induced by this hair follicle inhabitant in the skin of eland, Taurotragus oryx, is described at the histological level.
(8) Two captive eland (Taurotragus oryx) were inoculated and their blood investigated as with the experimental buffalo.
(9) There is too much bureaucracy," said Ivan Eland, director of the Center on Peace & Liberty at The Independent Institute think-tank.
(10) Parasitological complex studies of the available eland stock (60 individuals) were first carried out.
(11) All methods gave comparable results thus confirming our previous findings (1) and those reported by Elander (2).
(12) The autopsy of animals have shown that five species of six species of nematodes and one species of cestodes are common parasites of ruminants of the Ukraine steppe zone and two species are specific parasites of eland.
(13) Experiments have been made on 4 elands at the age of 3--4 months, mean body weight 78 kg.
(14) The histomorphology of formalin-fixed micro and macrosarcosporidian cysts of Grant's, Thomson's gazelle, impala, wildebeest, Bubal hartebeest, Cape eland, red duiker, Kirk's dik-dik, defassa waterbuck, Bohor reedbuck, African buffalo, giraffe, warthog, and giant forest hog is described.
(15) However, 50% or more of helmeted guinea fowl and kudu from the Andries Vosloo Kudu Reserve; helmeted guinea fowl, scrub hares and eland (Taurotragus oryx) from the Mountain Zebra National Park; helmeted guinea fowl, kudu, domestic sheep, goats and cattle on the farm "Bucklands", and caracal (Felis caracal) from the Cradock and Southwell areas of the eastern Cape Province were infested with immature A. marmoreum.
(16) For ruminants (sheep, hartebeest, duiker and kob), excluding eland, given legumes the value was 8-6, and for sheep and duiker given herbs the value was 14-7.
(17) Application of various lipid solvents and dimethyl sulphoxide to the skin of cattle, sheep, eland and African buffalo exposed to an air temperature of 20 degrees C caused an increase in cutaneous moisture loss.
(18) Defassa waterbuck and eland exhibited discharges which were accompanied by a gradual rise in basal level.
(19) Buffalo may play a role in the epidemiology of babesiosis in cattle, while eland most likely do not.
(20) The experimental data indicate that the East African buffalo can be a carrier of Babesia bigemina for at least 5 months, while this parasite did not survive in eland.
