    1988–2017 - amphibians - birds - Brazil - mammals - reptiles - road effects - road mortality - road survey - species occurrence - wildlife-vehicle collisions

    Mortality from collision with vehicles is the most visible impact of road traffic on wildlife. Mortality due to roads (hereafter road-kill) can affect the dynamic of populations of many species and can, therefore, increase the risk of local decline or extinction. This is especially true in Brazil, where plans for road network upgrading and expansion overlaps biodiversity hotspot areas, which are of high importance for global conservation. Researchers, conservationists and road planners face the challenge to define a national strategy for road mitigation and wildlife conservation. The main goal of this dataset is a compilation of geo-referenced road-kill data from published and unpublished road surveys. This is the first Data Paper in the BRAZIL series (see ATLANTIC, NEOTROPICAL, and BRAZIL collections of Data Papers published in Ecology), which aims make public road-kill data for species in the Brazilian Regions. The dataset encompasses road-kill records from 45 personal communications and 26 studies published in peer-reviewed journals, theses and reports. The road-kill dataset comprises 21,512 records, 83% of which are identified to the species level (n = 450 species). The dataset includes records of 31 amphibian species, 90 reptile species, 229 bird species, and 99 mammal species. One species is classified as Endangered, eight as Vulnerable and twelve as Near Threatened. The species with the highest number of records are: Didelphis albiventris (n = 1,549), Volatinia jacarina (n = 1,238), Cerdocyon thous (n = 1,135), Helicops infrataeniatus (n = 802), and Rhinella icterica (n = 692). Most of the records came from southern Brazil. However, observations of the road-kill incidence for non-Least Concern species are more spread across the country. This dataset can be used to identify which taxa seems to be vulnerable to traffic, analyze temporal and spatial patterns of road-kill at local, regional and national scales and also used to understand the effects of road-kill on population persistence. It may also contribute to studies that aims to understand the influence of landscape and environmental influences on road-kills, improve our knowledge on road-related strategies on biodiversity conservation and be used as complementary information on large-scale and macroecological studies. No copyright or proprietary restrictions are associated with the use of this data set other than citation of this Data Paper.

    LPCAT1 controls phosphate homeostasis in a zinc-dependent manner

    All living organisms require a variety of essential elements for their basic biological functions. While the homeostasis of nutrients is highly intertwined, the molecular and genetic mechanisms of these dependencies remain poorly understood. Here, we report a discovery of a molecular pathway that controls phosphate (Pi) accumulation in plants under Zn deficiency. Using genome-wide association studies, we first identified allelic variation of the Lyso- Phosphatidyl Choline (PC) Acyl Transferase 1 (LPCAT1) gene as the key determinant of shoot Pi accumulation under Zn deficiency. We then show that regulatory variation at the LPCAT1 locus contributes significantly to this natural variation and we further demonstrate that the regulation of LPCAT1 expression involves bZIP23 TF, for which we identified a new binding site sequence. Finally, we show that in Zn deficient conditions loss of function of LPCAT1 increases the phospholipid Lyso-Phosphatidyl Choline/Phosphatidyl Choline ratio, the expression of the Pi transporter PHT1;1, and that this leads to shoot Pi accumulation.

    Molucular gene profiling of Clostridium botulinum group III and their detection in naturally contaminated samples originating from various European countries

    We report the development of real-time PCR assays for genotyping Clostridium botulinum group III targeting the newly defined C. novyi sensu lato group; the nontoxic nonhemagglutinin (NTNH)-encoding gene ntnh; the botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT)-encoding genes bont/C, bont/C/D, bont/D, and bont/D/C; and the flagellin (fliC) gene. The genetic diversity of fliC among C. botulinum group III strains resulted in the definition of five major subgroups named fliC-I to fliC-V. Investigation of fliC subtypes in 560 samples, with various European origins, showed that fliC-I was predominant and found exclusively in samples contaminated by C. botulinum type C/D, fliC-II was rarely detected, no sample was recorded as fliC-III or fliC-V, and only C. botulinum type D/C samples tested positive for fliC-IV. The lack of genetic diversity of the flagellin gene of C. botulinum type C/D would support a clonal spread of type C/D strains in different geographical areas. fliC-I to fliC-III are genetically related (87% to 92% sequence identity), whereas fliC-IV from C. botulinum type D/C is more genetically distant from the other fliC types (with only 50% sequence identity). These findings suggest fliC-I to fliC-III have evolved in a common environment and support a different genetic evolution for fliC-IV. A combination of the C. novyi sensu lato, ntnh, bont, and fliC PCR assays developed in this study allowed better characterization of C. botulinum group III and showed the group to be less genetically diverse than C. botulinum groups I and II, supporting a slow genetic evolution of the strains belonging to C. botulinum group III.

    Botulism disease in both humans and animals is a worldwide concern. Botulinum neurotoxins produced by Clostridium botulinum and other Clostridium species are the most potent biological substances known and are responsible for flaccid paralysis leading to a high mortality rate. Clostridium botulinum and botulinum neurotoxins are considered potential weapons for bioterrorism and have been included in the Australia Group List of Biological Agents. In 2010 the European Commission (DG Justice, Freedom and Security) funded a 3-year project named AniBioThreat to improve the EU's capacity to counter animal bioterrorism threats. A detection portfolio with screening methods for botulism agents and incidents was needed to improve tracking and tracing of accidental and deliberate contamination of the feed and food chain with botulinum neurotoxins and other Clostridia. The complexity of this threat required acquiring new genetic information to better understand the diversity of these Clostridia and develop detection methods targeting both highly specific genetic markers of these Clostridia and the neurotoxins they are able to produce. Several European institutes participating in the AniBioThreat project collaborated on this program to achieve these objectives. Their scientific developments are discussed here.

    Two real-time PCR arrays based on the GeneDisc(®) cycler platform (Pall-GeneDisc Technologies) were evaluated in a multicenter collaborative trial for their capacity to specifically detect and discriminate Clostridium botulinum types C, D and their mosaic variants C-D and D-C that are associated with avian and mammalian botulism. The GeneDisc(®) arrays developed as part of the DG Home funded European project 'AnibioThreat' were highly sensitive and specific when tested on pure isolates and naturally contaminated samples (mostly clinical specimen from avian origin). Results of the multicenter collaborative trial involving eight laboratories in five European Countries (two laboratories in France, Italy and The Netherlands, one laboratory in Denmark and Sweden), using DNA extracts issued from 33 pure isolates and 48 naturally contaminated samples associated with animal botulism cases, demonstrated the robustness of these tests. Results showed a concordance among the eight laboratories of 99.4%-100% for both arrays. The reproducibility of the tests was high with a relative standard deviation ranging from 1.1% to 7.1%. Considering the high level of agreement achieved between the laboratories these PCR arrays constitute robust and suitable tools for rapid detection of C. botulinum types C, D and mosaic types C-D and D-C. These are the first tests for C. botulinum C and D that have been evaluated in a European multicenter collaborative trial.

    A workshop on animal botulism was held in Uppsala, Sweden, in June 2012. Its purpose was to explore the current status of the disease in Europe by gathering the European experts in animal botulism and to raise awareness of the disease among veterinarians and others involved in biopreparedness. Animal botulism is underreported and underdiagnosed, but an increasing number of reports, as well as the information gathered from this workshop, show that it is an emerging problem in Europe. The workshop was divided into 4 sessions: animal botulism in Europe, the bacteria behind the disease, detection and diagnostics, and European collaboration and surveillance. An electronic survey was conducted before the workshop to identify the 3 most needed discussion points, which were: prevention, preparedness and outbreak response; detection and diagnostics; and European collaboration and surveillance. The main conclusions drawn from these discussions were that there is an urgent need to replace the mouse bioassay for botulinum toxin detection with an in vitro test and that there is a need for a European network to function as a reference laboratory, which could also organize a European supply of botulinum antitoxin and vaccines. The foundation of such a network was discussed, and the proposals are presented here along with the outcome of discussions and a summary of the workshop itself.
    Separated by a Common Language: Awareness of term usage differences between languages and disciplines in biopreparedness

    Preparedness for bioterrorism is based on communication between people in organizations who are educated and trained in several disciplines, including law enforcement, health, and science. Various backgrounds, cultures, and vocabularies generate difficulties in understanding and interpretating terms and concepts, which may impair communication. This is especially true in emergency situations, in which the need for clarity and consistency is vital. The EU project AniBio- Threat initiated methods and made a rough estimate of the terms and concepts that are crucial for an incident, and a pilot database with key terms and definitions has been constructed. Analysis of collected terms and sources has shown that many of the participating organizations use various international standards in their area of expertise. The same term often represents different concepts in the standards from different sectors, or, alternatively, different terms were used to represent the same or similar concepts. The use of conflicting terminology can be problematic for decision makers and communicators in planning and prevention or when handling an incident. Since the CBRN area has roots in multiple disciplines, each with its own evolving terminology, it may not be realistic to achieve unequivocal communication through a standardized vocabulary and joint definitions for words from common language. We suggest that a communication strategy should include awareness of alternative definitions and ontologies and the ability to talk and write without relying on the implicit knowledge underlying specialized jargon. Consequently, cross-disciplinary communication skills should be part of training of personnel in the CBRN field. In addition, a searchable repository of terms and definitions from relevant organizations and authorities would be a valuable addition to existing glossaries for improving awareness concerning bioterrorism prevention planning.

    Clostridium botulinum types C and D, as well as their mosaic variants C-D and D-C, are associated with avian and mammalian botulism. This study reports on the development of low-density macroarrays based on the GeneDisc cycler platform (Pall-GeneDisc Technologies) applied to the simultaneous detection of the C. botulinum subtypes C, C-D, D, and D-C. The limit of detection of the PCR assays was 38 fg of total DNA, corresponding to 15 genome copies. Artificially contaminated samples of cecum showed a limit of detection below 50 spores/g. The tests were performed with a large variety of bacterial strains, including C. botulinum types C (n = 12), C-D (n = 29), D (n = 5), and D-C (n = 10), other botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT)-producing Clostridium strains (n = 20), non-BoNT-producing clostridia (n = 20), and other bacterial species (n = 23), and showed a high specificity. These PCR assays were compared to previously published real-time PCRs for the detection of C. botulinum in 292 samples collected from cases of botulism events in four European regions. The majority of the samples originated from wild birds (n = 108), poultry (n = 60), and bovines (n = 56). Among the 292 samples, 144 were positive for either the bont/C-D or the bont/D-C gene by using the GeneDisc arrays. The reliability of the results tallied to 97.94%. Interestingly, only BoNT mosaics, types C-D and D-C, were found in naturally contaminated samples whatever their animal origin and their geographical location. Further investigations should now be performed in order to check that mosaic types dominate in Europe and that acquisition of mosaic types helps in survival or adaptation to particular niche

    Gelden standaardadviezen en -richtlijnen ook voor een niet-gemiddeld persoon? Dat vragen veel mensen die niet standaard zijn zich af. Kleine mensen – mensen die niet langer worden dan 1,45 meter (vrouwen) of 1,55 meter (mannen) – weten bijvoorbeeld niet of de adviezen over gewicht, voeding en bewegen ook voor hen gelden. Ook artsen en diëtisten kunnen hen daarbij niet altijd helpen. Dit rapport laat aan artsen, diëtisten en (para)medici zien hoe het is om klein te zijn. Ook geeft het hen handreikingen hoe zij in hun adviezen over gewicht, gezonde voeding en bewegen rekening kunnen houden met de specifieke lichamelijke beperkingen van kleine mensen.

    Virus-contaminated soft fruits or vegetables are increasingly identified as causes of foodborne viral illness. Noroviruses and hepatitis A virus are the most common pathogens in viral infections transmitted by these kinds of foods. To improve microbiological detection and monitoring and to increase insights into the contribution of fruits and vegetables to foodborne viral transmission, sensitive, reliable, and standardized methods are needed. More studies on virus detection methods for foods are being published, but validated consensus protocols are not yet available. In this paper, different methodologies are reviewed critically. The use of process controls and internal amplification controls is discussed.

    Dihydrodipicolinate synthase (DHDPS, EC was isolated and studied in four high-lysine maize mutants (Oh43o1, Oh43o2, Oh43fl1 and Oh43fl2). The activity of DHDPS was analyzed at 16, 20, and 24 DAP and characterized in the presence of the amino acids, lysine, S-(2-aminoethyl)-l-cysteine (AEC), S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) and calcium. The results indicated that DHDPS was strongly inhibited by lysine, and that there was little variation between the mutants, indicating that lysine accumulation in these mutants may be more dependent on other enzymes involved in lysine metabolism. The higher concentrations of lysine observed in the seeds of the mutants at maturity may be explained by the accumulation of soluble lysine caused by a reduction in lysine degradation, or by changes in the distribution of high lysine containing storage proteins.

    Deze tentoonstelling werd ingericht ter gelegenheid van het afscheid van Carla Oldenburger als conservator van de Speciale Collecties. Alida Withoos, geboren in Amersfoort in 1662 als dochter van de schilder Matthias Withoos, werd door haar vader met drie broers en haar zuster Maria opgeleid tot schilderes van bosstillevens en botanische illustraties. Vanwege de inname van Utrecht door de Franssen verhuisde de familie in 1672 naar Hoorn. In 1701 trouwde Alida met de schilder Andries Cornelisz van Dalen. Zij is een typisch voorbeeld van een kunstenares die in de zeventiende en achttiende eeuw voortkwam uit een schildersmilieu. Een opleiding tot volleerd schilder kostte veel geld, dat was in die tijd niet voor meisjes weggelegd, maar binnen de familie kregen talentvolle dochters de mogelijkheid om te worden opgeleid en mee te werken in het atelier van vader, oom, broer of echtgenoot, vaak onder diens naam. Anders dan haar man, broers en zuster wist Alida onder haar eigen naam een zekere reputatie te verwerven. Dat is vooral te danken aan haar botanische tekeningen. In Hoorn waren een aantal van de kinderen Withoos actief als tekenaars van bloemen, vogels, vlinders en insecten. In boedelinventarissen komen regelmatig zogenoemde 'Withoosjes' voor. Alida was met haar broer Pieter een van de vele kunstenaars die planten schilderden op de buitenplaats Vijverhof in dienst van Agnes Block. Deze tekeningen zijn jammer genoeg niet bewaard gebleven. Wel bewaard zijn dertien aquarellen die Alida in 1684 tekende voor de gekleurde Moninckx-atlas met 425 afbeeldingen van planten in de Amsterdamse Hortus, waar net als in de tuin van Block planten groeiden die door schepen van de Verenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie van verre waren aangevoerd. Bij de Bibliotheek Wageningen UR ligt een andere Moninckx-atlas met 111 gekleurde tekeningen, gemaakt in spiegelbeeld voor de graveur van de catalogus van de Hortus, De Horti Medici Amstelodamensis rariorum plantarum historia van Jan en Caspar Commelin in twee delen (1697, 1701). De bibliotheek bezit bovendien een Konstboeck van de verzamelaar Simon Schijnvoet met onder andere zeven tekeningen van Alida Withoos, misschien gemaakt voor Block. Deze geven een goed beeld van de hoge kwaliteit van haar werk. De tentoonstelling plaatst Alida in de context van haar tijd, de wereld van de kunst, het verzamelen van rariteiten, de botanie en de tuinen. Er zijn botanische tekeningen van Alida te zien en illustraties betreffende de tuinen waar en de mensen voor wie zij werkte. De expositie bevat een korte, geanimeerde presentatie van het beeldmateriaal en de uitgebreide catalogusteksten met uitsnedes die kunnen worden vergroot.
