Little Bustard

 

(Tetrax telrax), a bird of the family Otididae of the order Gruiformes. The little bustard ranges from 43 to 50 cm in length and from 0.6 to 1 kg in weight. The back is dull brown with dark striations, and the belly is white; in the male the neck is black with white stripes. The little bustard is distributed in northwestern and northern Africa, southern Europe, and southwestern Asia. In the USSR it occurs in the steppe zone from the Ukraine to eastern Kazakhstan and in Transcaucasia. The little bustard inhabits only virgin steppe; it is very rare in cultivated areas. The nest is constructed on the ground. A clutch contains three to five spotted green eggs, which are incubated by the female for about three weeks. Both male and female care for the young. The diet consists primarily of plant matter but also includes insects, notably grasshoppers. In the USSR the little bustard is accorded full protection.

To maintain the body balance, integration of the visual, vestibular, and somatosensory systems is essential.[5] Posturographic examinations with the Tetrax Interactive Balance System (TIBS; Tetrax Sunlight Medical Ltd., Ramat Gan, Israel) can be used to reliably assess the balance and stability.

Despite this, the Irish authorities have not delivered any habitat management plans for areas affected by over-grazing, including the Owenduff-Nephin Beg Complex, nor have they provided, by way of response to the reasoned opinion, details of the commonage plans and other measures which need to be put in place in the Complex.The case against Portugal concerns the Campo Maior, a special protection area in the Eastern hinterland of the country which is very important for a range of endangered wild bird species such as the Little Bustard, Tetrax tetrax, the Black-bellied Sandgrouse, Pterocles orientalis, the Lesser Kestrel, Falco naumanni and, the Great Bustard, Otis tarda.
Background: The little bustard (Tetrax tetrax), is a flagship species associated with semi-natural steppe habitats and traditional, low-input agricultural systems.
The Tetrax Interactive Balance System is reliable for evaluating postural balance and has been used to evaluate fall risk in some clinical studies in recent years.
