Patterns of mortality in southern sea otters (Enhydra lutris nereis
) from 1998-2001.
fetida Andrei, (7) as well as histidine from Dendrobaena Veneta and Nereis
Amino acid sequence of the small cadmium-binding protein (MP-II) from Nereis
diversicolor (Annelida, Polychaeta): evidence for a myohemerythrin structure.
Another microsporidian was seen in a single nereid worm (probably Nereis
virens) collected from the plankton in June 1993.
The polychaetes Sigambra tentaculata and Nereis
arroyensis (Treadwell, 1941) were the most common species.
gondii has been reported in various wild animals belonging to the family Mustelidae, such as mink (Mustela vison), river otters (Lontra canadensis), southern sea otters (Enhydra lutris nereis
), black-footed ferrets (Mustela nigripes), stone marten (Martes foina), pine marten (Martes martes), ferret (Mustela putorius furo), Eurasian otter otters (Lutra lutra), and polecat (Mustela putorius), using microscopy, in vitro cultivation, and serological methods (6, 13-16).
Enteric bacterial pathogen detection in southern sea otters (Enhydra lutris nereis
) is associated with coastal urbanization and freshwater runoff.
Sexual dimorphism in craniomandibular morphology of southern sea otters (Enhydra lutris nereis
New evidence for the existence of southern sea otters Enhydra lutris nereis
in Baja California, Mexico.
The stomach was collected intact and contained a Pacific cod, Dadus microcephalus, otolith; Arctic lamprey, Lampetra camtschatica, mouth parts; fragments of invertebrates from polychaetes (Polynoidae) and Nereis
sp.; and shrimp (Crangonidae); and a few nematodes.
