Un sirénien éocène dans les Pyrénées aragonaises: contexte géologique du site de Janovas (Huesca, Aragon, Espagne). [An Eocene sirenian in the Aragonese Pyrenees: geological context of the Janovas site (Huesca, Aragon, Spain).]
Revue de Paléobiologie (Geneva) 35(2): 447-457. 7 figs. DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.269615. Dec. 2016.
–RÉSUMÉ: Le site paléontologique inédit de Janovas est décrit. Il se situe sur le flanc ouest de l'anticlinal de Boltaña dans les Pyrénées espagnoles (Huesca, Province d'Aragon). Le contexte stratigraphique place ce site au début du Lutétien et plus précisément au toit du dernier banc de calcaire marin de l'Unité des Calcaires de Boltaña (Formation de Guara). La principale découverte est un squelette en connexion anatomique presque complet d'un sirénien de la famille des ?Dugongidae indet. Ce fossile a été trouvé pris dans un debris flow en lien étroit avec la tectonique syn-sédimentaire locale. Ce contexte taphonomique si particulier et la qualité de conservation de ce type de fossile sont des nouveautés dans l'Eocène de l'anticlinal de Boltaña.
 ABSTRACT: The unpublished paleontological site of Janovas is described. It is located on the western flank of the Boltaña anticline in the Spanish Pyrenees (Huesca, Aragon Province). The site is stratigraphically located at the top of the Boltaña Limestones Unit (Guara Formation). Stratigraphic evidence dates the site as Early Lutetian. The main finding is a nearly complete sirenian (?Dugongidae indet.) skeleton in anatomical connection. This fossil was found in a debris flow created by the local syn-sedimentary tectonics. The very specific taphonomic context of the site together with the good quality of conservation of the fossil are unusual in the Eocene of the Boltaña anticline.

Physiol. Zool. 59(5): 552-557. 3 tabs. 1 fig. Sept.-Oct. 1986.
–Measurements on captive manatees fed grass (Brachiaria) and water hyacinth (Eichhornia) showed no increase in metabolic rate after feeding (= specific dynamic action), probably due to the slow rate of food passage through the digestive tract. Two weeks of fasting did not reduce metabolic rate, again because much of the weight loss during the fast was attributable to emptying of the gut. Also notes differences in chewing rates correlated with body size and diet.

Temperature regulation in the Amazonian manatee Trichechus inunguis.
Physiol. Zool. 56(2): 255-262. 4 figs. Apr. 1983.
–Summ.: New Scientist, Dec. 1, 1983: 654, 1 fig. Core temperatures of two animals were measured (with swallowed transmitters) at 35-36 C and varied with water temperature within the thermoneutral zone; below that zone (i.e., below 22-23 C) they were maintained, primarily by increase in activity. Their primary mechanism for thermoregulation seemed to be changes in peripheral circulation, aided by subcutaneous fat insulation. Speculates that cold-related mortality and limits to distribution in T. manatus may be due less to physiology than to nutritional status and food availability.

Heart rates and gas exchange in the Amazonian manatee (Trichechus inunguis) in relation to diving.
Jour. Compar. Physiol. B: Biochem. Syst. Environ. Physiol. 156(3): 415-423. 3 tabs. 5 figs.
–Electrocardiograms and respiratory gas measurements of unrestrained captive animals showed a constant heart rate (here defined as the "normal" rate) during dives, slight respiratory tachycardia, and marked (probably fright-induced) bradycardia when the manatees were forced to prolong their dives. Because their metabolism is low, it can remain aerobic during most dives, and changes in alveolar gas composition are slower than in other marine mammals. Metabolic acidosis is apparently compensated for by metabolic rather than respiratory alkalosis.

Mass stabilization for environmentally sensitive projects in Florida.
Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board 2201:62-69. DOI: 10.3141/2201-08. Dec. 2010.
–ABSTRACT: US-1 is a two-lane highway and the main route to and from the Florida Keys. A hurricane preparedness and public safety plan included the Florida Department of Transportation's replacement of the drawbridge over Jewfish Creek with a fixed bridge and widening of the roadway north of the bridge. Before construction, the widening program included mass stabilization to improve the soft underlying soils, which consisted of 5 ft of granular fill placed over 10 to 15 ft of soft organic silt overlying limestone. The bridge approach embankments reached up to 20 ft in height. Safety was critical because the work took place adjacent to an active highway. The entire project was environmentally sensitive and required attention to spoil controls because the work was performed adjacent to water and wildlife. In another environmentally sensitive area, a new two-lane bridge was planned for construction on driven piling over a waterway in Port Everglades, Florida. The subsurface consisted of 3 to 4 ft of sand followed by 8 to 10 ft of peat, then limestone. The peat layer was unsuitable to support the mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls planned for the abutments. A mass stabilization program was conducted to improve the bearing capacity and limit settlement and to ensure global stability of the MSE walls. Considerations included the existing condition of soils contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbon and environmentally sensitive adjacent properties, including a manatee mating area. The mass stabilization construction methods and procedures, design considerations, quality control, equipment, and performance monitoring of these two environmentally sensitive bridge projects are discussed.

  A novel of Colombia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Alludes to manatees in the Rio Magdalena "that nursed their young at large maternal teats and startled the [steamboat] passengers with their woman's cries" (142; also 324, 336, 344), and cites a "legend that they were the only females in the animal kingdom that had no mates" (331). Also makes the more plausible assertions that by the 1920s the Rio Magdalena manatees had been "annihilated by the armored bullets of hunters for sport ... despite the laws prohibiting it" (331, 337), and that an orphaned manatee, "the last of its kind seen along the river", lived for years in a zoo at San Nicolás de las Barrancas (332).

Antioxidant effect and polyphenol content of Syringodium filiforme (Cymodoceaceae).
Revista de Biologia Tropical 59(1): 465-472. 4 tables. March 2011.
–ABSTRACT: The marine phanerogam Syringodium filiforme, known as "manatee grass", is a common species that grows in coastal areas associated to Thalassia testudinum. With the aim to describe some of its possible chemical characteristics, this study was performed with a sample of 1.2kg, collected in March 2009, in Guanabo beach, Havana, Cuba. The sample was dried (less than 12% humidity) and a total extract prepared; other three extracts were prepared with the use of solvents of increasing polarity. The phytochemical screening and analytical determinations of each fraction were undertaken. Total polyphenol content was determined using pyrogallol as reference standard; chlorophyll a and b and anthocyanin content were also quantified. Total extract and fractions antioxidant activity were evaluated by using the free radical scavenging activity assay with 1,1-Diphenyl-2-Picrylhydrazyl reactive (known as DPPH method). The phytochemical screening of the different extracts detected the presence of high concentrations of flavonoids, phenols, terpenes, antocyaninns, reducing sugars and alkaloids. The total extract and methanol fraction showed significant free radical scavenging properties, while the petroleum ether fraction showed moderate activity, and the chloroform fraction and the aqueous soluble precipitate (residual salt) obtained didn't show antioxidant properties against free radicals. The results of this work confirmed the potentialities of this species for biological purposes.

Detection of hydrodynamic stimuli by the postcranial body of Florida manatees (Trichechus manatus latirostris).
Jour. Comp. Physiol. A 203: 111–120. 2 tabs. 4 figs. DOI 10.1007/s00359-016-1142-8. Publ. online Feb. 13, 2017.
–ABSTRACT: Manatees live in shallow, frequently turbid waters. The sensory means by which they navigate in these conditions are unknown. Poor visual acuity, lack of echolocation, and modest chemosensation suggest that other modalities play an important role. Rich innervation of sensory hairs that cover the entire body and enlarged somatosensory areas of the brain suggest that tactile senses are good candidates. Previous tests of detection of underwater vibratory stimuli indicated that they use passive movement of the hairs to detect particle displacements in the vicinity of a micron or less for frequencies from 10 to 150 Hz. In the current study, hydrodynamic stimuli were created by a sinusoidally oscillating sphere that generated a dipole field at frequencies from 5 to 150 Hz. Go/no-go tests of manatee postcranial mechanoreception of hydrodynamic stimuli indicated excellent sensitivity but about an order of magnitude less than the facial region. When the vibrissae were trimmed, detection thresholds were elevated, suggesting that the vibrissae were an important means by which detection occurred. Manatees were also highly accurate in two-choice directional discrimination: greater than 90% correct at all frequencies tested. We hypothesize that manatees utilize vibrissae as a three-dimensional array to detect and localize low-frequency hydrodynamic stimuli.

Detection of hydrodynamic stimuli by the Florida manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris).

–ABSTRACT: Florida manatees inhabit the coastal and inland waters of the peninsular state. They have little difficulty navigating the turbid waterways, which often contain obstacles that they must circumnavigate. Anatomical and behavioral research suggests that the vibrissae and associated follicle–sinus complexes that manatees possess over their entire body form a sensory array system for detecting hydrodynamic stimuli analogous to the lateral line system of fish. This is consistent with data highlighting that manatees are tactile specialists, evidenced by their specialized facial morphology and use of their vibrissae during feeding and active investigation/manipulation of objects. Two Florida manatees were tested in a go/no-go procedure using a staircase method to assess their ability to detect low-frequency water movement. Hydrodynamic vibrations were created by a sinusoidally oscillating sphere that generated a dipole field at frequencies from 5 to 150 Hz, which are below the apparent functional hearing limit of the manatee. The manatees detected particle displacement of less than 1??m for frequencies of 15–150 Hz and of less than a nanometer at 150 Hz. Restricting the facial vibrissae with various size mesh openings indicated that the specialized sensory hairs played an important role in the manatee's exquisite tactile sensitivity.

 ABSTRACT: Manatees inhabit turbid, shallow-water environments and have been shown to have poor visual acuity. Previous studies on hearing have demonstrated that manatees possess good hearing and sound localization abilities. The goals of this research were to determine the hearing abilities of two captive subjects and measure critical ratios to understand the capacity of manatees to detect tonal signals, such as manatee vocalizations, in the presence of noise. This study was also undertaken to better understand individual variability, which has been encountered during behavioral research with manatees. Two Florida manatees (Trichechus manatus latirostris) were tested in a go/no-go paradigm using a modified staircase method, with incorporated 'catch' trials at a 1: 1 ratio, to assess their ability to detect single-frequency tonal stimuli. The behavioral audiograms indicated that the manatees' auditory frequency detection for tonal stimuli ranged from 0.25 to 90.5 kHz, with peak sensitivity extending from 8 to 32 kHz. Critical ratios, thresholds for tone detection in the presence of background masking noise, were determined with one-octave wide noise bands, 7-12 dB (spectrum level) above the thresholds determined for the audiogram under quiet conditions. Manatees appear to have quite low critical ratios, especially at 8 kHz, where the ratio was 18.3 dB for one manatee. This suggests that manatee hearing is sensitive in the presence of background noise and that they may have relatively narrow filters in the tested frequency range.

Inactivation of thermogenic UCP1 as a historical contingency in multiple placental mammal clades.
Science Advances 3: e1602878 (14 pp.). 4 figs. + online supplementary materials. DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1602878 July 12, 2017.
–ABSTRACT: Mitochondrial uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) is essential for nonshivering thermogenesis in brown adipose tissue and is widely accepted to have played a key thermoregulatory role in small-bodied and neonatal placental mammals that enabled the exploitation of cold environments. We map ucp1 sequences from 133 mammals onto a species tree constructed from a ~51-kb sequence alignment and show that inactivating mutations have occurred in at least 8 of the 18 traditional placental orders, thereby challenging the physiological importance of UCP1 across Placentalia. Selection and timetree analyses further reveal that ucp1 inactivations temporally correspond with strong secondary reductions in metabolic intensity in xenarthrans and pangolins, or in six other lineages coincided with a ~30 million–year episode of global cooling in the Paleogene that promoted sharp increases in body mass and cladogenesis evident in the fossil record. Our findings also demonstrate that members of various lineages (for example, cetaceans, horses, woolly mammoths, Steller's sea cows) evolved extreme cold hardiness in the absence of UCP1-mediated thermogenesis. Finally, we identify ucp1 inactivation as a historical contingency that is linked to the current low species diversity of clades lacking functional UCP1, thus providing the first evidence for species selection related to the presence or absence of a single gene product.

Identification of the natural product 2,3,4,5-tetrabromo-1-methylpyrrole in Pacific biota, passive samplers and seagrass from Queensland, Australia.
Marine Pollution Bulletin 62(11): 2463-2468. 1 tab. 4 figs. DOI:10.1016/j.marpolbul.2011.08.022. Nov. 2011.
–ABSTRACT: Halogenated natural products (HNPs) are frequently detected in marine organisms. High HNP concentrations have previously been found in marine mammals from the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, including in the blubber of herbivorous dugongs (Dugong dugon). To identify the source of HNPs we initially focused on the analysis of Australian seagrass (Halophila ovalis) which serves as the principal food source for dugongs. GC/MS analysis of the seagrass indicated the presence of several organobromine compounds. One compound was identified as 2,3,4,5-tetrabromo-1-methylpyrrole (TBMP) by synthesis. Subsequent analysis of semipermeable membrane devices demonstrated that the photo-sensitive TBMP is widespread in the Great Barrier Reef (Queensland, Australia). The detection of larger TBMP concentrations in fish fillets from Chile and traces in mussels from New Zealand indicated that this potential HNP may be distributed throughout the Southern Pacific Ocean.

Establishment of echocardiographic parameters of clinically healthy Florida manatees (Trichechus manatus latirostris).
JOURNAL OF ZOO AND WILDLIFE MEDICINE 46 (2):205-212. 5 tables. 4 figures. DOI: JUN 2015.
–ABSTRACT: A standardized echocardiographic technique was recently established for the Florida manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris). There are no available published data on normal echocardiographic parameters in any Sirenian species. The purpose of this study was to report reference parameters for various echocardiographic measurements. These parameters are intended to serve as a comparison for future research into the prevalence of cardiac diseases in the manatee and to aid in diagnosing animals with suspected cardiac disease in rehabilitation facilities. Annual health assessments of free-ranging manatees in Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, Florida, and pre-release health assessments of rehabilitated manatees at Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo permitted comparison of echocardiographic measurements in adult (n = 14), subadult (n = 7), and calf (n = 8) animals under manual restraint.

Echocardiographic evaluation of clinically healthy Florida manatees (Trichechus manatus latirostris).
Jour. Zoo & Wildlife Medicine 44(2): 295-301. DOI: June 2013.
–ABSTRACT: Antemortem studies pertaining to the manatee cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary systems are limited despite reports of cardiac disease in postmortem specimens. The objective of this project was to develop a technique for echocardiography in the Florida manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris). Because of their unique anatomy, a ventral approach was employed by use of an echocardiography table designed specifically for this study. Fourteen clinically healthy, free-ranging and captive Florida manatees underwent echocardiography between the fall of 2011 and winter of 2012. Eight females and six males of various age categories were included in the study. Clear visualization of all valves and chambers was accomplished, and length and width measurements of the left atrium, peak aortic flow velocity, and ejection fraction percentage were calculated in most animals. Abnormalities observed during the study included atrioventricular regurgitation and severe right-atrial enlargement. Based on the results of this study, echocardiography in the Florida manatee is possible, which has both clinical and research implications in larger epidemiologic studies evaluating diseases of the cardiopulmonary and cardiovascular systems.

Conservative management of pneumothorax and pneumoperitoneum in two Florida manatees (Trichechus manatus latirostris).
Jour. Zoo & Wildlife Medicine 44(4): 996-1001. 3 figs. DOI:10.1638/2012-0136R3.1. Dec. 2013.
–ABSTRACT: Two distressed Florida manatees (Trichechus manatus latirostris) were reported to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The first animal was determined to be an abandoned, emaciated calf. The second animal was a nursing calf that had sustained watercraft-related trauma. Both animals were captured and transported to Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, where diagnostic evaluations, including physical examinations, blood work, computed tomography (CT), and radiographs were performed. Radiograph and CT scans identified the presence of free air within the pleural and abdominal cavities of both animals. Based on the lack of substantial findings in the first animal and a rapid resolution of clinical signs in the second animal, both animals were managed conservatively. This report documents simultaneous pneumothorax and pneumoperitoneum, the associated clinical and diagnostic findings, and conservative medical management of these conditions in the Florida manatee.

The underwater audiogram of the West Indian manatee (Trichechus manatus).
Jour. Acoustical Soc. Amer. 105(6): 3575-3587. 2 tabs. 7 figs. June 1999.
–Behavioral experiments on two captive adult Florida manatees produced a U-shaped audiogram with auditory thresholds at 0.4 and 46 kHz and maximum sensitivity between 6 and 20 kHz. Detection thresholds of possible vibrotactile origin were measured at 0.015-0.2 kHz. Sensitivity falls 20 dB per octave below 0.8 kHz and approximately 40 dB per octave above 26 kHz. The audiogram demonstrates a wider range of hearing and greater sensitivity than was suggested by evoked-potential and anatomical studies. Inadequate sensitivity at low frequencies may contribute to manatees' inability to avoid collisions with motorboats. Use of high-frequency directional acoustic beacons on boats is suggested as a remedy.

Disturbance of the Florida manatee by an invasive catfish.
Southeastern Naturalist 9(4): 635-648. 2 tabs. 3 figs. DOI: 10.1656/058.009.0401.
–ABSTRACT: During the winter, Trichechus manatus latirostris (Florida manatee) depends on long periods of rest in comparatively warm thermal refuges to help conserve energy and maintain stable body temperatures. Pterygoplichthys disjunctivus (Vermiculated Suckermouth Sailfin Catfish) has been observed attached to, and grazing algae from, Florida manatees in Volusia Blue Spring. We hypothesized that the disturbance caused by grazing armored catfish would significantly alter Florida manatee behavior. Analyses of 6 hours of underwater video of Florida manatee behavior, with and without attached armored catfish, revealed that during each observation period, Florida manatees with attached catfish demonstrated significantly higher activity levels and numbers of active behaviors. Increased Florida manatee activity caused by the armored catfish may compound the impact of other known threat effects.

Contrib. Mus. Paleont. Univ. Michigan 30(11): 269-319. 12 tabs. 24 figs. Dec. 31, 2001.
–ABSTRACT: Field work in autumn 1999 was concentrated in marine middle and upper Eocene strata of Dabh Nala, a tributary of Drug Lahar, on the eastern flank of the Sulaiman Range, Balochistan Province, Pakistan. Objectives included:(1) recovery of better specimens of previously-known archaeocete whales; (2) recovery of new archaeocetes from new stratigraphic intervals; (3) comparison of Eocene formations here with those studied elsewhere in Balochistan and Punjab; and (4) better documentation of local and regional sea level cycles for refined correlation to eustasy on a global scale.
  Ten stratigraphic intervals within the Habib Rahi and Domanda formations are now known to yield archaeocetes. These come from three distinct cycles of sea level rise and fall. Interpretation in the context of planktonic foraminifera1 and nannoplankton age control for a virtually continuous Baska-Habib RahiDomanda-Pir Koh-Drazinda stratigraphic section shows that the Habib Rahi through Domanda cycles match the global pattern of sea level change for the Lutetian. Archaeocete-bearing strata of the Harudi Formation in Kutch (India) are early Bartonian rather than Lutetian, and correlative with the Pir Koh flooding event in Pakistan.
  New archaeocete specimens described here include the first record of the remingtonocetid Andrewsiphius sloani, new combination, from the upper Domanda Formation (late Lutetian in age); a new species of Remingtonocetus, R. domandaensis, based on a partial skull, a dentary with most teeth, and associated postcranials, from the middle Domanda Formation (middle Lutetian); and a new genus and species of protocetid, Qaisracetus arifi, based on a partial skull and unusually complete articulated axial skeleton from the upper Domanda Formation (late Lutetian).

Defends the functional importance of the "vestigial" lower incisor alveoli as sites of anchorage for the masticating plate (21-22). Regards the Red Sea population as a valid subspecies, Dugong dugong [sic] tabernaculi (35-40). Describes (perhaps on the basis of information from fishermen?) a very unlikely-sounding mode of grazing, in which dugongs purportedly uproot seagrasses with the flippers, stack them in heaps, and then return to consume them in the same order (42)! Argues that dugongs may well have contributed to mermaid legends (46-47).

The first record of Sirenia (Mammalia) from the early Oligocene of the Paratethys.
Historical Biology 31(10): 1373-1378. 10.1080/08912963.2018.1454444 Publ. online Mar. 23, 2018.
–ABSTRACT: Sirenians have been extensively recorded from the Mediterranean and west European localities but there are only few finds to the east of it, from the area covered by the Paratethys. For the early Oligocene, to our knowledge, there are no published records of sirenians from inner seas of the Old World. Here we report a specimen of Dugongidae indet., consisting of two partial vertebrae and 12 fragments of ribs, collected in a manganese ore mine in Ukraine and dated as the earliest Oligocene (33–32 Ma). The specimens, as preserved, did not differ in morphology and size from 'Halitherium schinzii' and therefore can belong to Kaupitherium, at present the single early Oligocene genus recorded from Europe. However, its vertebral and rib anatomy is not specific for Kaupitherium, so we identify it only by family level. The marks of scavenging on a rib possibly are due to gastropod or bivalve mollusks. The sea, as suggested from biotic data, had a temperate or subtropical climate, relatively cold waters and high diversity of pelagic and deep-water habitats. Thus, the onset of the Oligocene was a period when sirenians could enter temperate inner Eurasian waters, a marginal area in their worldwide dispersal.

–ABSTRACT: This study determined the preference of the manatees for some food resources, which constitute their diet in the region. The preference of the herbivore is typically shown through the "cafeteria feeding trials" technique: the animals are left to choose freely among the plants available for them. In order to evaluate the preference of the manatees through this technique, plants normally consumed by the manatee were offered(Paspalum repens, Urochloa mutica, Hydrocotyle ranunculoides y Eichhornia crassipes) in the study area, next to other vegetables normally consumed by humans, which are usually offered at a Zoo as part of their diet. Of all the plants offered, the grass P. repens was the preferred plant, which was successfully used to evaluate the preliminary structure lock up-trap where the manatees entered. The preference for this plant could be attributed to characteristics that were not evaluated for this study, such as palatability, microelements, and/or texture.
 RESUMEN: Este estudio determinó la preferencia del manatí por algunos recursos alimenticios que constituyen su dieta en la región. La preferencia alimenticia en un herbívoro es abordada mediante "experimentos de restaurante", al dejar que los animales escojan libremente entre los alimentos ofrecidos. Con este propósitose proporcionaron las principales plantas consumidas por el manatí (Paspalum repens, Urochloa mutica, Hydrocotyle ranunculoides y Eichhornia crassipes) en el área de estudio, junto a otras plantas de consumo humano que son proporcionadas en los zoológicos como parte de su dieta (manzanas, zanahorias, lechugas y mangos). De todas las plantas ofrecidas, el pasto P. repens fue la planta preferida y se utilizó para evaluar con éxito una estructura preliminar de encierro-trampa en donde los manatíes ingresaron. La preferencia por esta planta podría estar relacionada con características que no fueron evaluadas durante la presente investigación como: palatabilidad, microelementos, textura.

Genetic diversity and structure from Antillean manatee (Trichechus manatus manatus) in the southern Gulf of México: comparison between connected and isolated populations.

–ABSTRACT: Antillean manatees (Trichechus manatus manatus), a subspecies of the West Indian manatee, is listed as endangered species in the Red List of Threatened Species of the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The aims of this research were to survey on the possible regional genetic structure in the southern Gulf of Mexico and to compare genetic status of a landlocked population in Laguna de las Ilusiones (IL) with individuals from localities with no barriers to displacement and breed (open population [OP]). We analyzed 45 manatee skin samples collected from different locations in Tabasco (n?=?38, including 19 from IL), Veracruz (n?=?3), Campeche (n?=?2), and Chiapas (n?=?2). The genomic DNA was isolated and PCR amplifications were performed for each sample using 28 microsatellite loci, previously designed for West Indian manatees and described as polymorphic for this species. Two clusters (k?=?2) were identified by STRUCTURE. The analysis of both a priori populations (IL and OP) indicate that the global values of FST and RST (FST=0.049, RST=0.077) were significant. The HE for IL was 0.38?±?0.03 and for OP was 0.49?±?0.01. The average number of alleles NA for IL was 2.21?±?0.09 and for OP was 2.32?±?0.09. The overall inbreeding coefficient was FIS=?0.013 for analyzed populations. Genetic diversity was low. The IL population had slightly lower genetic diversity compared with OP, which could be explained by isolation of that small group, so conservation plans for IL should be considered as priority.

Nematode epibionts on skin of the Florida manatee, Trichechus manatus latirostris.
Scientific Reports 11(1211): 3 figs. Jan. 13, 2021.
–ABSTRACT: A survey for the presence of nematodes on the skin of the native Florida manatee, Trichechus manatus latirostris from Crystal River, Florida was conducted during annual manatee health assessments. A putative isolate of Cutidiplogaster manati (Diplogastridae) and two other nematodes belonging to the same family were recovered from mid-dorsal tail skin-scrapings from all sampled winter-collected healthy wild adult manatees during two successive years (2018–2019). Qualitative abundance estimates of these three species of diplogastrid nematodes suggest that an average wild Florida manatee adult might possess between 30,000 and 120,000 nematodes on its tail dorsum and that the entire body dorsum including the tail might possess 160,000–640,000 nematodes in roughly equal ratios. Attempts to culture these nematodes on a variety of different culture media were unsuccessful but examination of the mouth (stomatal) morphology suggests specialized feeding on microbes such as diatoms or predation on other nematodes. No skin lesions were observed during the 2018–2019 samplings suggesting that under normal conditions these nematodes are highly specialized free-living epibionts of the skin that are tightly bound to this niche and horizontally transferred between individual manatees in an analogous fashion to human skin mites (Demodex folliculorum and D. brevis). Molecular phylogenetic inferences using sequences of near full length SSU and D2–D3 expansion segments of LSU rRNA genes revealed a putative new morphospecies in Cutidiplogaster sister to C. manati that was monophyletic with several named Mononchoides species, and another putative new morphospecies that formed a clade with several undescribed species similar in appearance to Mononchoides as well as Tylopharyx, Eudiplogasterium, Paroigolaimella and Sachsia.

–ABSTRACT- It is currently unknown how important the Central American countries south of Belize are as a link between manatee populations in the north (Belize and Mexico) and populations in South America. Therefore, apart from knowing where manatees are found, it is important to understand how manatees are using these habitats and if they are moving between countries or distinct population centers. Here we report the results of a multi-national and multiinstitutional collaboration resulting in the first successful capture and satellite tracking of a West Indian manatee in southern Central America.

Distribution and conservation status of the Antillean manatee (Trichechus manatus manatus) in Honduras.
Latin American Journal of Aquatic Mammals 9(2): 123-131. 3 tabs. 2 figs. Publ. online Jan. 27, 2014.
–ABSTRACT: The Antillean manatee, Trichechus manatus manatus, is among the most threatened mammals in Honduras, yet the last published study is from 1980. Since then, the North Coast of Honduras has experienced rapid population growth and land cover change possibly causing habitat loss for manatees. We conducted aerial, boat, and interview surveys between 2005-2007 along the northern and remote eastern coasts of Honduras to assess the current status and distribution of manatees. In addition, we compiled all available data on manatee mortality from museum specimens, unpublished reports, and interviews to determine current threats. We averaged 1.2 manatee sightings per survey hour during six flights along the North Coast in March-April 2006 during 14.4 aerial survey hours. Sightings were mainly clustered in Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge (CSWR) and Rios Chapagua and Aguan, which we identify as important conservation areas. Our total and average sightings per survey hour in CSWR were much lower than those reported in 1979-80, in spite of the area being protected since 1987. Our interviews indicate that manatees are still present on the eastern coast (La Mosquitia), however we observed none during 14.5 survey hours in June 2005 and April 2007. The major cause of known mortality from 1970-2007, based on 26 records, was due to entanglement in fishnets. Despite local and federal protection, manatees are still poached and opportunistically caught in fishnets. While some efforts have been made by local NGOs to raise public awareness for manatees, a national conservation program is highly recommended to centralize and coordinate efforts.
 RESUMEN: El manatí antillano, Trichechus manatus manatus, es uno de los mamíferos más amenazados en Honduras, sin embargo, el último estudio publicado data de 1980. Desde entonces, la Costa Norte de Honduras ha experimentado un crecimiento rápido de población humana y cambios en el uso de suelo probablemente causando pérdida de hábitat para los manatíes. Realizamos muestreos aéreos y en lancha y también entrevistas entre 2005-2007 en la Costa Norte y en la remota costa del este de Honduras para evaluar el estado actual y la distribución de manatíes. Además, recopilamos todos los datos disponibles sobre mortalidad de manatíes mediante ejemplares en museos, reportes no publicados y entrevistas, para determinar las amenazas actuales. Realizamos seis muestreos aéreos de la Costa Norte entre marzo y abril del 2006, en los cuales registramos un promedio de 1.2 avistamientos por hora en un total de 14.4 horas de muestreos. Los avistamientos se ubicaron principalmente en el Refugio de Vida Silvestre Cuero y Salado (CSWR) y en los Ríos Chapagua y Aguan, que identi?camos como importantes áreas de conservación. Los avistamientos totales y promedio por hora de muestreos en CSWR fueron mucho menores que los reportados en 1979-1980, a pesar de que esta área está protegida desde 1987. Nuestras entrevistas indican que los manatíes aún están presentes en la costa este (La Mosquitia), sin embargo, no se observó ningún manatí durante 14.5 horas de muestreos en junio 2005 y abril 2007. La mayor causa de mortalidad entre 1970 y 2007, basado en 26 reportes, se debió a que manatíes quedaban atrapados en redes de pesca. Si bien se han hecho algunos esfuerzos por parte de ONGs locales para incrementar el conocimiento del público en cuanto a los manatíes, se recomienda fuertemente que se desarrolle un programa de conservación nacional que centralice y coordine esfuerzos.

The paleontological site of Cessaniti: a window on a coastal marine environment of seven million years ago (southern Calabria, Italy).
Geologica Romana 41: 25-34. 14 figs.
–Italian summ.
 ABSTRACT: The paleontological site of Cessaniti is situated in the inland of Vibo Valentia area and it is famous for the excellent preservation and relevance of its fossil content together with the wonderful panoramas of Tyrrhenian sea. The locality is well known since nineteenth century for the richness of the fauna and flora preserved in the sediments. The fossil assemblages contain invertebrate (corals, bivalve, gastropods, brachiopods, echinoids such as Clypeaster ssp., benthic and planktonic foraminifers) and vertebrate faunas (proboscideans, rhinoceroses, giraffids, bovids, sirenids, marine turtles and fish remains). Unfortunately the access to the outcrops is strongly limited due to their locations in cultivated quarries. The fossils are preserved in calcarenites which now days are loose through diagenetic processes. This makes the fossil collection quite easy due to the low degree of cementation. The succession is constituted of a paralic system that evolves toward an open marine environment recording the Tortonian transgression. The fossils of Cessaniti site bear a relevant role in earth science research particularly in phylogenetic studies and paleogeographic reconstructions; they have also great importance for the popular scientific divulgation and museology.

Toothsome sleuths of ancient oceans.
Earth 56(7): 23. 2 figs. July 2011.
–ABSTRACT: About 50 million years ago, a group of marine mammals called sirenians - manatees, sea cows and dugongs - swam serenely in the greenhouse gas-heated warm waters of the Eocene epoch. Greenhouse gas concentrations were five times higher than today, and global temperatures were as much as 12 degrees Celsius warmer. It may also have been considerably wetter - but data on that part of the climate have been hard to come by. Now, a new study suggests the teeth of ancient manatees can provide a window into the hydrologic cycle of the Eocene.

Expression from baculovirus and serological reactivity of the nucleocapsid protein of dolphin morbillivirus.
Veterinary Microbiology 143(2-4): 384-388. 1 tab. 2 figs. DOI: 10.1016/j.vetmic.2009.11.019. July 14, 2010.
–ABSTRACT: The nucleocapsid (N) protein of dolphin morbillivirus (DMV) was expressed from a baculovirus (Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis virus) vector and shown by SDS-PAGE and Western blot analysis to be about 57 kDa. Transmission electron microscopy revealed fully assembled nucleocapsid-like particles (NLPs) exhibiting the typical helical herringbone morphology. These NLPs were approximately 20-22 nm in diameter and varied in length from 50 to 100 nm. Purified DMV-N protein was used as antigen in an indirect ELISA (iELISA) and shown to react with rabbit and human antisera to measles virus (MV) and dog sera with antibodies to canine distemper virus (CDV). The iELISA was used for the demonstration of morbillivirus antibodies in the serum of cetaceans and manatees, showing potential as a serological tool for the mass screening of morbillivirus antibodies in marine mammals.

The vocalization mechanism of the Florida manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris).
OnLine Journal of Biological Sciences 14(2):127-149. 6 tabs. 6 figs. DOI:10.3844/ojbssp.2014.127.149.
–ABSTRACT: The mechanism by which Florida manatees produce vocalizations is unknown. Anatomically, the laryngeal region in manatees lacks clearly defined vocal folds. Initially we developed a method to visualize the entire manatee upper respiratory system. We then forced air through fresh necropsied manatee larynxes and generated artificial vocalizations which closely duplicated the normal vocalizations produced by live manatees, both in fundamental frequency and structure of harmonics. Here we report that sound is generated in the larynx when air vibrates bilateral strips of tissue embedded in the lateral laryngeal walls which are in close approximation anteriorly but which diverge posteriorly. We propose that these strips of tissue are the modified vocal folds containing ligaments and we support this through histological stained sections and because they are connected anteriorly to the posterior side of the thyroid cartilage and posteriorly with the arytenoidal cartilages. We also suggest that these vocalizations are then modified within the resonance cavities in the frontal area of the head and the air used to generate these vocalizations also causes a transient deformation of this region before being conserved and returned to the lungs.

Silicone modeling of the interior spaces of hollow organs: use in dog and manatee respiratory tract and in a beef heart.
OnLine Journal of Biological Sciences 11(1): 7-7. 2011.
–ABSTRACT: Problem statement: The mechanism by which the Florida manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris) vocalizes remains unknown because the manatee larynx does not contain true vocal cords. Since sound can be generated when air passes through a narrow respiratory structure we needed to visualize the internal anatomy of manatee respiratory tract to locate any candidate regions for study. Approach: To visualize the internal anatomy of upper and lower manatee respiratory tract we have developed a rapid but accurate method of modeling these structures using liquid silicone. We first tested this technique on the respiratory structure of a cadaver dog and then applied it to two small manatees which had died through natural causes. Incisions were made in the trachea of both dog and manatees and commercially available liquid silicone was then forced into the upper and lower respiratory tracts used a slightly modified common automobile grease gun. The animals were then refrigerated overnight and the silicone was allowed to cure for a period of 24 h. Results: In dog, we removed cured silicone model by applying mild force to it after surgically opening the nasal cavity. In the manatees some dissection was necessary for release of mold from the upper nasal cavity, but only mild force was necessary with no dissection to release silicone model from the lower tract. Because the models created exhibited great accuracy and fine structure, including presence of tertiary bronchi in the manatee respiratory tract, we realized that the technique was applicable for use in other hollow organs. We applied this method to the visualization of internal structure of a fresh beef heart and were pleased with the accuracy and detail of model produced. Conclusion: We suggest that this technique can be adopted for three-dimensional visualization of the internal structure and volume estimation of many hollow organs in a wide variety of organisms with both minimal effort and cost.

Acute necrotizing colitis with pneumatosis intestinalis in an Amazonian manatee calf.
Diseases of Aquatic Organisms 120: 189-194. 2 figs. doi: 10.3354/dao03019. Aug. 9, 2016.
–ABSTRACT: On 25 January 2014, a 1 mo old female Amazonian manatee Trichechus inunguis calf weighing 12 kg was rescued by air transport in Guajará, Brazil, and transferred to Mamirauá Institute's Community-based Amazonian Manatee Rehabilitation Center. The calf presented piercing/cutting lesions on the back, neck, and head, in addition to dehydration and intermittent involuntary buoyancy. X-ray analysis revealed a large amount of gases in the gastrointestinal tract. Daily procedures included wound cleaning and dressing, clinical and laboratory monitoring, treatment for intestinal tympanism, and artificial feeding. Adaptation to the nursing formula included 2 kinds of whole milk. Up to 20 d post-rescue the calf presented appetite, was active, and gained weight progressively. Past this period the calf started losing weight and presented constant involuntary buoyancy and died after 41 d in rehabilitation. The major findings at necropsy were pneumatosis intestinalis in cecum and colon, pulmonary edema, and hepatomegaly. The microscopic examination revealed pyogranulomatous and necrohemohrragic colitis with multinucleated giant cells, acute multifocal lymphadenitis with lymphoid depletion in cortical and paramedullary regions of mesenteric lymph nodes, and diffuse severe acinar atrophy of the pancreas. Anaerobic cultures of fragments of cecum and colon revealed colonies genotyped as Clostridium perfringens type A. We speculate that compromised immunity, thermoregulatory failure, and intolerance to artificial diet may have been contributing factors to the infection, leading to enterotoxemia and death.

Actualización de datos sobre la distribución del manatí (Trichechus manatus manatus) en los sistemas fluvio-lagunares que conectan con la laguna de Términos, Campeche, a través de la participación comunitaria. [Data update on the distribution of the manatee (Trichechus manatus manatus) in the fluvio-lagoon systems that connect with the Términos Lagoon, Campeche, through community participation.]
Revista Mexicana de Biodiversidad 90: 1-10. 3 tabs. 3 figs. e902433.
–RESUMEN: El manatí (Trichechus manatus manatus) es un mamífero acuático que está en peligro de extinción. Una población importante de esta especie se encuentra en los sistemas fluvio-lagunares que conectan con la laguna de Términos, Campeche, en donde también hay una gran actividad humana que afecta negativamente al manatí. Por lo anterior, desde 2011 en el Área Natural Protegida Laguna de Términos se inició el proceso de involucramiento de la población local en la conservación y registro del manatí. De 2011 a 2016 se hicieron 99 talleres de educación ambiental y participación social a los que asistieron 2,679 personas. La población local realizó 67 avistamientos de manatíes, principalmente en la laguna de Atasta y los ríos Candelaria y Palizada. En 56.7% de los casos, los avistamientos correspondieron a 1 individuo y 14.9% a 2 individuos. A través de la participación ciudadana se obtuvo una base de datos que permitió actualizar la información sobre la distribución espacial y temporal del manatí, que de otra forma se hubiera perdido. Se logró establecer una cultura de conservación del manatí y contar con insumos para implementar un programa de conservación y manejo en el Área Natural Protegida Laguna de Términos.
  ABSTRACT: The manatee (Trichechus manatus manatus) is an aquatic mammal that is in danger of extinction. An important population of this species is found in the fluvio-lagoon systems that connect with the Términos Lagoon, Campeche where there is also a great human activity that negatively affects the manatee. Therefore, since 2011, in the Términos Lagoon Natural Protected Area, the process of involving the local population in the conservation and recording of the manatee began. From 2011 to 2016, 99 environmental education and social participation workshops were held and attended by 2,679 people. The local population made 67 sightings of manatees, mainly in the Atasta Lagoon and the Candelaria and Palizada Rivers. In 56.7% of the cases, the sightings corresponded to a single individual and 14.9% to 2 individuals. Through citizen participation, a database was obtained that made it possible to update the information on the spatial and temporal distribution of the manatee that would otherwise have been lost. We managed to establish a manatee conservation culture and have inputs to implement their conservation and management program in the Términos Lagoon Natural Protected Area.

Micromorphological, geochemical, and diagenetic characterization of sirenian ribs preserved in the Late Miocene paleontological site of Cessaniti (southern Calabria, Italy).
Facies 57(1): 179-190. 9 figs. "Jan. 2011" (publ. online Dec. 21, 2011).
–ABSTRACT: The site of Cessaniti (Vibo Valentia, Italy) has been well known since the 19th century for the richness and good preservation of its Miocene fauna and flora. The sedimentary succession of the site represents a paralic system that evolved toward an open-marine environment recording the Tortonian transgression. The fossil assemblage contains rich invertebrate (corals, bivalves, gastropods, brachiopods, echinoids, benthic and planktonic foraminifers) and vertebrate faunas (proboscideans, rhinoceroses, giraffds, bovids, sirenids, marine turtles, and fish remains). The fossils recovered at the Cessaniti site have a relevant role in phylogenetic studies and paleogeographic reconstructions of Late Miocene environments of the southern Italy. This research is focused on the microstructure and preservation state of the fossil bones. Samples of Metaxytherium sp. bones have been analyzed to understand the diagenetic profile of the bone assemblages that characterizes the taphonomic history of the Cessaniti site. The analyses provided a comprehensive account of how bone mineral (bioapatite) has been altered and demonstrated that the post-burial processes did not significantly affect the micromorphological and biogeochemical features of the bones. The excellent preservation state of the bones strengthens the importance of the Cessaniti site for studies of the Mediterranean Miocene vertebrate fauna.

A source separation approach to enhancing marine mammal vocalizations.
Journal of the Acoustical Society of America 126(6): 3062-3070. DOI: 10.1121/1.3257549. Dec. 2009.
–ABSTRACT: A common problem in passive acoustic based marine mammal monitoring is the contamination of vocalizations by a noise source, such as a surface vessel. The conventional approach in improving the vocalization signal to noise ratio (SNR) is to suppress the unwanted noise sources by beamforming the measurements made using an array. In this paper, an alternative approach to multi-channel underwater signal enhancement is proposed. Specifically, a blind source separation algorithm that extracts the vocalization signal from two-channel noisy measurements is derived and implemented. The proposed algorithm uses a robust decorrelation criterion to separate the vocalization from background noise, and hence is suitable for low SNR measurements. To overcome the convergence limitations resulting from temporally correlated recordings, the supervised affine projection filter update rule is adapted to the unsupervised source separation framework. The proposed method is evaluated using real West Indian manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris) vocalizations and watercraft emitted noise measurements made within a typical manatee habitat in Florida. The results suggest that the proposed algorithm can improve the detection range of a passive acoustic detector five times on average (for input SNR between ?10 and 5?dB) using only two receivers.

Feeding ecology of the Amazonian manatee (Trichechus inunguis) in the Mamirauá and Amanã Sustainable Development Reserves, Brazil.
Aquatic Mammals 40(2): 139-149. 3 tabs. 4 figs. doi:10.1578/AM.40.2.2014.139
–ABSTRACT: The Amazonian manatee (Trichechus inunguis) is an exclusively herbivorous freshwater mammal. Between 1994 and 2008, 230 fecal and 16 stomach content samples from wild Amazonian manatees were obtained. The material was collected during both dry and wet seasons in the sustainable development reserves of Mamirauá (MSDR) and Amanã (ASDR) from floodplain and terra firme and igapó (not subject to long-term flooding) habitats, respectively. Species constituting the diet of the Amazonian manatee were identified through a comparative analysis with a reference collection of epidermis from 69 plant species of potential consumption by the species. Forty-nine plant species were identified in the species' diet. In the MSDR, 32 plant species were found -- 18 during the dry season and 28 during the wet season. In the ASDR, 48 species were identified of which 40 occurred in both periods. A total of 30 new species were added to the Amazonian manatee diet known to date. The species that were found most frequently in the material were Hymenachne amplexicaulis, Oryza grandiglumis, Paspalum repens, Azolla caroliniana, and Limnobium spongia. Poaceae was the family with the greatest frequency of occurrence (91.5%). Plant species most consumed present emergent or floating habits. There was a difference in the composition of plant species found in manatee feces between the dry and wet seasons (p = 0.0002) but not between floodplain and igapó. Results show that the Amazonian manatee feeds on a great variety of plant species during the wet and dry season alike, and both in floodplain and igapó environments. Therefore, food availability alone does not represent a determining factor to explain the seasonal migration of the species.

Ingestion of invertebrates, seeds, and plastic by the Amazonian manatee (Trichechus inunguis) (Mammalia, Sirenia).
Aquatic Mammals 38(3): 322-324. DOI: 10.1578/AM.38.3.2012.322.
–ABSTRACT: The living Sirenia belong to the only group of herbivorous aquatic mammals which occur in river systems and coastal tropical and subtropical waters. From this group, the Amazonian manatee (Trichechus inunguis) is the smallest species, exclusively from fresh-water and endemic to the Amazon Basin. Sirenians are monogastric herbivores with post-gastric digestion and a low metabolic rate. Aquatic and semi-aquatic macrophytes are the main food source for Amazonian manatees, and the species composition and abundance of these plants are strongly influenced by the Amazonian hydrological pulse, which consequently influences the annual supply of food for the manatees. As accidental ingestion of microorganisms and seeds does not affect the health of the manatee even when not digested, the major concern is centered on the growing process of environmental degradation, mainly caused by indirect and direct deposition of waste in the rivers of the Amazon.
