In the September 11, 2017 issue of The New Yorker, physician and Pulitzer Prize winning author, Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD, writes that the dilemma we face in treating the cancer patient may be very similar to why the quagga mussel is out of control in Lake Michigan but of no concern in the Dnieper.
Researchers have previously suggested that the quagga was a subgroup of plains zebras and not its own separate zebra species, and the new genetic analysis offers more evidence for that idea.
Prior to this detection, the Pacific Northwest remained one of the only regions in North America without invasive quagga and zebra mussels.
But a handful of others-sea lamprey, alewife, round goby, quagga mussel, zebra mussel, Eurasian watermilfoil, spiny water flea, and rusty crayfish-have conducted an all-out assault on the Great Lakes and are winning the battle.
The quagga is an extinct subspecies of which African wild animal?
Identification of larvae: the zebra mussel (Dreissenapolymorpha), quagga mussel (Dreissena rostriformis bugensis), and Asian clam (Corbicula fluminea).
They also recount the specific stories of several animals lost forever due to human activity, such as the dodo, moa, thylacine, and quagga. This beautifully designed book includes excellent nature photography that shows off the diverse wildlife threatened with extinction, from lovely two-A-page spreads of a tiger, polar bears, or macaws in their natural habitats, to smaller but striking images of forest elephants, the gray whale, or the giant anteater.
Historians from the US, Canada, South Africa, and Europe look at animals who responded to or were products of specific contexts, discussing killer whales in the Pacific Northwest, the rise and fall of feral burros in the American West, and the extinct quagga in South Africa, as well as animal sources in archives, including the Mexican National Archive, veterinary artifacts at the C.A.V.
(2008) reported that, along with a night-time increase in feeding intensity, round gobies in Lake Ontario also ceased eating quagga mussels (Dreissena bugensis), which represented 25 % of their daytime diet, and switched to chironomids.
Distance sampling method was used to collect data on densities of large herbivores including namely; impala, kudu, zebra (Equus quagga), giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis), waterbuck (Kobus ellipsiprymnus), elephant (Loxodonta africana), warthog (Phacochoerus africanus), steenbok (Raphicerus campestris), common duiker (Sylvicapra grimmia) and nyala (Tragelaphus angasii), and in both study sites.
It looks at three de-extinction projects--the mammoth, quagga, and thylacine--using the way these projects have been couched to analyse anxieties over the hubristic abuse of technology.
