Therefore, the treatment protocol recommended for sheep and goats has been derived mainly from studying and treating camelids
Potential cross-reactivity is a diagnostic challenge because camelids
are known to be infected with bovine CoV (BCoV), a distinct betacoronavirus of phylogenetic lineage A unrelated to the MERS-CoV (17,18).
To summarise what we have learned about supposed Middle Horizon khipus--all of which were dated by relative means--up to this time, the following are the central features shared by these samples: a) cotton was the primary material of cord production; b) cords were wrapped in multiple, stacked bands of multi-coloured, camelid
fibre threads; c) a predominance of Z-plying (the exception being the Huaca San Marcos example, with its mixed plying directions); and d) the frequent use of simple, overhand knots (with no long or figure-of-eight knots; see discussion of Inka knot types, below).
This is particularly true for South American camelids
The theme of the conference is 'Challenges Facing Camelids
in a Changing World'.
Bin Soughan's birth heralds another significant breakthrough for the centre as he was cloned from cells harvested from the skin of an elite bull whereas Injaz, the world's first cloned camelid
, was produced from the ovarian cells of a she-camel.
Peruvians raise alpacas, a species of South American camelid
, primarily for their warm wool and sometimes to eat.
The Alpaca (Vicugna pacos) is a domesticated species of South American camelid
In addition, the company is a world leader in the development of novel camelid
antibody products to provide unique avenues of progress and improvement in assay methods and monitoring capabilities for physicians, patients and researchers, initially for food chain protection applications.
THE llama (Lama glama) is a South American camelid
, widely used as a pack animal by the Incas and other natives of the Andes mountains.
But it wasn't until Safley discovered alpacas that he got the camelid
itch, giving up a real estate career to start Northwest Alpacas in 1984.
This provides a resource for government agency libraries throughout the world, and also recognises camelid
industries as significant livestock operations wherever they occur," wrote Prof Fowler.
