Ontogenetic variation in the skulls of Caiman: the case of Caiman latirostris and Caiman yacare (Alligatoridae, Caimaninae)
(British Herpetological Society, 2015-04)
Caiman is one of the five extant genera of alligatorid crocodylians. While several quantitative and qualitative studies exist on morphological variation in the genus, little is known about ontogenetic effects. Here, we ...
Hepatozoon caimani in caiman crocodilus yacare (crocodylia, alligatoridae) from north pantanal, BrazilHepatozoon caimani em caiman crocodilus yacare (crocodylia, alligatoridae) do norte do pantanal, Brasil
Hepatozoon species are the most common intracellular hemoparasite found in reptiles. Hepatozoon caimani, whose vectors are Culex mosquitoes, has been detected in a high prevalence among caimans in Brazil by blood smears ...
Morphometric analysis of the corneal endothelium of Yacare caiman (Caiman yacare) using scanning electron microscopy
(Blackwell Publishing, 2004-05-01)
The objective of this study was to examine the endothelial surface morphology and to perform morphometric analysis of the corneal endothelial cells of Yacare caiman (Caiman yacare) using scanning electron microscopy. ...
Predator-prey interactions: jaguar predation on caiman in a floodplain forest
Advances in the understanding of ecological factors determining predatorprey interactions have provided a strong theoretical background on diet preferences of predators. We examined patterns of jaguar predation on caiman ...
MOTILIN-IMMUNOREACTIVE CELLS IN THE DUODENUM, PYLORIC STOMACH AND PANCREAS OF CAIMANS (CAIMAN-LATIROSTRIS AND CAIMAN-CROCODILUS, ALLIGATORINAE) - A FURTHER COMPARISON USING REGION-SPECIFIC MOTILIN ANTISERA
(Japan Soc Histol Documentation Niigata Univ Medical School, 1991-07-01)
Motilin-immunoreactive cells in the duodenum, pyloric stomach and pancreas of Caiman latirostris and Caiman crocodilus were investigated using region specific antisera for porcine and canine motilin molecules. Motilin-im ...
Regulation of ventilation in the caiman (Caiman latirostris): effects of inspired CO2 on pulmonary and upper airway chemoreceptors
In order to study the relative roles of receptors in the upper airways, lungs and systemic circulation in modulating the ventilatory response of caiman (Caiman latirostris) to inhaled CO2, gas mixtures of varying concentrations ...
Camera traps capture images of predators of Caiman crocodilus yacare eggs (Reptilia: Crocodylia) in Brazil's Pantanal wetlands.
(Journal of Natural History, p. 1-6, 2014., 2014)
Potential Impact of Climate Change in the Sex Ratio of Caymans in Costa RicaEfecto potencial del cambio climático en la proporción de sexos del caimán en Costa Rica
