Mammalian exocrine secretions XVIII : chemical characterization of interdigital secretion of red hartebeest, Alcelaphus buselaphus caama
(Springer Verlag, 2003-10)
Gas chromatography, coupled gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (electron impact mode and chemical ionization with methane as reactant gas), gas chromatography-infrared spectroscopy, and derivatization techniques were ...
Temporal changes in the neonatal recognition cue of Dohne Merino Lambs (Ovis aries)
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2014-02)
The strong bond that is formed between ewe and lamb after parturition is important for lamb survival. Evidence exists that the ewe mainly employs olfactory recognition cues to distinguish her lamb from other lambs in the ...
Mass spectrometry in pheromone research
INTRODUCTION: The application of mass spectral techniques in the identifica tion of compounds invo lved in chemical communication between living organisms will be discussed in this a rticle. These biologically ...
Lizard epidermal gland secretions I : chemical characterization of the femoral gland secretion of the sungazer, Cordylus giganteus
(Springer Verlag, 2007-09)
The giant girdled lizard or sungazer, Cordylus giganteus, is endemic to South Africa. It has been suggested that in this species, as in other lizard species, epidermal glands in the femoral, pre-cloacal regions, and cloacal ...
Lizard epidermal gland secretions II : chemical characterization of the generation gland secretion of the sungazer, Cordylus giganteus
(American Chemical Society and American Society of Pharmacognosy, 2011-06)
In lizards, the epidermal glands of the femoral and precloacal regions are involved in the production of semiochemicals. In addition to its femoral glands, the giant girdled lizard, or sungazer, Cordylus giganteus, which ...
Elemental sulfur identified in urine of cheetah, Acinonyx jubatus
(Springer Verlag, 2006-06)
The urine of the cheetah, Acinonyx jubatus, is almost odorless, and probably for this reason, it has not attracted much attention from scientists. Using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, we identified 27 and 37 ...
