A schematic sampling protocol for contaminant monitoring in raptors.

Silvia Espín, Jovan Andevski, Guy Duke, Igor Eulaers, Pilar Gómez-Ramírez, Gunnar Thor Hallgrimsson, Björn Helander, Dorte Herzke, Veerle L B Jaspers, Oliver Krone, Rui Lourenço, Pedro María-Mojica, Emma Martínez-López, Rafael Mateo, Paola Movalli, Pablo Sánchez-Virosta, Richard F Shore, Christian Sonne, Nico W van den Brink, Bert van Hattum, Al Vrezec, Chris Wernham, Antonio J García-Fernández,

Birds of prey, owls and falcons are widely used as sentinel species in raptor biomonitoring programmes. A major current challenge is to facilitate large-scale biomonitoring by coordinating contaminant monitoring activities and by building capacity across countries. This requires sharing, dissemination and adoption of best practices addressed by the Networking Programme Research and ... Read more >>

An assessment of eggshell pigments as non-invasive biomarkers of organochlorine pollutants in gull-billed tern.

Ana Pérez de Vargas, Mariano Cuadrado, Pablo R Camarero, Rafael Mateo,

Eggshell pigmentation has been assessed as an indicator of exposure to environmental pollutants in birds, but these studies have only used reflectance spectrophotometry to measure such pigmentation. The present study is the first one that measures eggshell pigments and pollutants in the same eggs to explore their use as biomarkers ... Read more >>

In vitro assessment of mineral blocks as a cost-effective measure to reduce oral bioavailability of lead (Pb) in livestock.

Jennifer Pareja-Carrera, Jaime Rodríguez-Estival, Rafael Mateo, Mónica Martinez-Haro,

Soil contamination in former mining districts is a persistent problem resulting from the historic lack of legal requirements as regards land restoration after mine closures. Much of this polluted land is currently being used worldwide for livestock and big game production, with the consequent health risks for the animals exposed ... Read more >>

Feathers and hair as tools for non-destructive pollution exposure assessment in a mining site of the Iberian Pyrite Belt.

Esperanza Gil-Jiménez, Rafael Mateo, Manuela de Lucas, Miguel Ferrer,

Mining is responsible of releasing trace elements to the environment with potential negative effects on wildlife. Traditionally, wildlife exposure assessment has been developed by analyzing mainly environmental compartments or internal tissues. Nowadays, the use of non-destructive matrices such as hair or feathers has increased. Nevertheless, its use in free-living terrestrial ... Read more >>

Assessment of ecotoxicological risks to river otters from ingestion of invasive red swamp crayfish in metal contaminated areas: Use of feces to estimate dietary exposure.

Jaime Rodríguez-Estival, Manuel E Ortiz-Santaliestra, Rafael Mateo,

The invasive red swamp crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) has become a major food resource for Eurasian otters (Lutra lutra) in the Iberian Peninsula. Crayfish accumulate large amounts of metals, and hence otters could be at risk of exposure and intoxication through crayfish consumption. We conducted a food safety risk assessment for ...

A mitochondria-targeted antioxidant affects the carotenoid-based plumage of red crossbills

Alejandro Cantarero, Rafael Mateo, Pablo Camarero, Daniel Alonso, Blanca Fernandez-Eslava, Carlos Alonso-Alvarez,

ABSTRACT The mechanisms involved in the production of red carotenoid-based ornaments in vertebrates are still poorly understood. Those colours generated by red carotenoids often depend on the enzymatic production (ketolation) of these pigments from dietary yellow carotenoids. Recently, it has been proposed that this conversion takes place at the inner ... Read more >>

Maternal food supplementation and perceived predation risk modify egg composition and eggshell traits but not offspring condition.

Chiara Morosinotto, Robert L Thomson, Erkki Korpimäki, Rafael Mateo, Suvi Ruuskanen,

Mothers may vary resource allocation to eggs and embryos, which may affect offspring fitness and prepare them for future environmental conditions. The effects of food availability and predation risk on reproduction have been extensively studied, yet their simultaneous impacts on reproductive investment and offspring early life conditions are still unclear. ...

Conditioned food aversion in domestic dogs induced by thiram.

Jorge Tobajas, Pilar Gómez-Ramírez, Pablo Ferreras, Antonio Juan García-Fernández, Rafael Mateo,

BACKGROUND:The conflict between predators and humans for resources such as game species or livestock is an ancient issue, and it is especially sharp in the case of medium-large wild canids. In order to manage this conflict, lethal control methods are often used, which can sometimes be illegal, such as poisoning. ... Read more >>

Selection of new chemicals to be used in conditioned aversion for non-lethal predation control.

Jorge Tobajas, Pilar Gómez-Ramírez, Pedro María-Mojica, Isabel Navas, Antonio Juan García-Fernández, Pablo Ferreras, Rafael Mateo,

Globally, native predators and scavengers are threatened through the incidence of illegal poisoning due to increasing human-wildlife conflicts. The use of conditioned taste aversion (CTA) may mitigate such conflicts. CTA is a robust learning paradigm that occurs when animals associate a food with a discomfort induced by a chemical, thereby ... Read more >>

Accumulation of pollutants in nestlings of an endangered avian scavenger related to territory urbanization and physiological biomarkers.

Manuel E Ortiz-Santaliestra, Helena Tauler-Ametller, Silvia Lacorte, Antonio Hernández-Matías, Joan Real, Rafael Mateo,

We monitor pollutant accumulation and investigate associated changes at the physiological level within the population of an obligate avian scavenger, the Egyptian Vulture (Neophron percnopterus), from Catalonia (NE Spain). This population is expanding its range, presumably because of the use of human waste disposal sites as food resource. We hypothesized ... Read more >>

Immunotoxic effects of lead on birds.

Núria Vallverdú-Coll, Rafael Mateo, François Mougeot, Manuel E Ortiz-Santaliestra,

The ingestion of lead (Pb) shot pellets is a well-known cause of avian mortality, but exposure of birds to Pb may have other sublethal effects that can affect population sustainability. One of these effects is the alteration of the immunological status. Pb can affect most components of the avian immune ... Read more >>

Tools for non-invasive sampling of metal accumulation and its effects in Mediterranean pond turtle populations inhabiting mining areas.

Manuel E Ortiz-Santaliestra, Antonio Rodríguez, Jennifer Pareja-Carrera, Rafael Mateo, Mónica Martinez-Haro,

Among reptiles, freshwater turtle species have high potential for metal accumulation because of their long lifespan or their aquatic and terrestrial habits. In order to monitor metal bioaccumulation, determine potential toxic effects, and investigate tools for non-invasive metal sampling in reptiles, we studied lead (Pb) and mercury (Hg) accumulation in ...

Generalized spatial mark-resight models with incomplete identification: An application to red fox density estimates.

Jose Jimenez, Richard Chandler, Jorge Tobajas, Esther Descalzo, Rafael Mateo, Pablo Ferreras,

The estimation of abundance of wildlife populations is an essential part of ecological research and monitoring. Spatially explicit capture-recapture (SCR) models are widely used for abundance and density estimation, frequently through individual identification of target species using camera-trap sampling.Generalized spatial mark-resight (Gen-SMR) is a recently developed SCR extension that allows ...

Dietary canthaxanthin reduces xanthophyll uptake and red coloration in adult red-legged partridges.

Carlos Alonso-Alvarez, Esther García-de Blas, Rafael Mateo,

Carotenoids give color to conspicuous animal signals that are often the product of sexual selection. Knowledge of the mechanisms involved in carotenoid-based signaling is critical to understanding how these traits evolve. However, these mechanisms remain only partially understood. Carotenoids are usually viewed as scarce dietary antioxidants whose allocation to ornaments ... Read more >>

Urbanization and cattle density are determinants in the exposure to anticoagulant rodenticides of non-target wildlife.

Jhon J López-Perea, Pablo R Camarero, Ines S Sánchez-Barbudo, Rafael Mateo,

The persistence and toxicity of second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) in animal tissues make these compounds dangerous by biomagnification in predatory species. Here we studied the levels of SGARs in non-target species of wildlife and the environmental factors that influence such exposure. Liver samples of terrestrial vertebrates (n = 244) found dead ...
