Gut microbiota of ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta) vary across natural and captive populations and correlate with environmental microbiota


By: S. Bornbusch*, L. Greene*, S. Rahobilalaina*, S. Calkins*, R. Rothman*, T. Clarke n, M. LaFleur*, C. Drea*

TL;DR: This study highlights that gut consortia are sensitive to multiple scales of environmental differences, and begs a reevaluation of the simple ‘captive vs. wild’ dichotomy. (via Semantic Scholar)

Microbial rewilding in the gut microbiomes of captive ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta) in Madagascar


By: S. Bornbusch*, T. Clarke n, S. Hobilalaina*, H. Reseva*, M. LaFleur* & C. Drea*

MeSH headings : Animals; Humans; Lemur; Gastrointestinal Microbiome / genetics; Madagascar; Diet; Ecosystem; Strepsirhini
TL;DR: Beyond the inherent psychosocial value of naturalistic environments, it is found that actions, such as providing appropriate diets, minimizing contact with humans, and increasing exposure to natural environmental consortia, may assist in maximizing host-microbe symbiosis in animals under human care.

Lessons Learned and Paths Forward for Rabies Dog Vaccination in Madagascar: A Case Study of Pilot Vaccination Campaigns in Moramanga District


By: C. Filla*, M. Rajeev*, Z. Randriana*, C. Hanitriniana*, R. Rafaliarison*, G. Edosoa, M. Andriamananjara*, N. Razafindraibe* ...

author keywords: canine rabies; mass dog vaccination; central point vaccination; puppy vaccination; Zeroby30
TL;DR: It is found that mass dog vaccination is feasible and can achieve high coverage in Madagascar; however, context-specific strategies and an investment in dog vaccination as a public good will be required to move the country towards elimination. (via Semantic Scholar)

2020 journal article

Daily lettuce supplements promote foraging behavior and modify the gut microbiota in captive frugivores

ZOO BIOLOGY, 39(5), 334–344.

author keywords: fiber; gut microbiome; husbandry; lemur; Varecia
MeSH headings : Animal Feed; Animal Welfare; Animals; Animals, Zoo; Diet / veterinary; Feeding Behavior; Fruit; Gastrointestinal Microbiome; Lemuridae / physiology; Lettuce
TL;DR: Controlling for the effects of host species and social-group membership, lettuce consumption shifted the composition of the gut microbiome away from each lemur's own baseline, an effect that became stronger as the study progressed. (via Semantic Scholar)

2020 journal article

Genetic population structure of endangered ring-tailed lemurs (Lemur catta) from nine sites in southern Madagascar

ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION, 10(15), 8030–8043.

By: A. Chandrashekar*, J. Knierim*, S. Khan*, D. Raboin*, S. Venkatesh*, T. Clarke n, F. Cuozzo, M. LaFleur* ...

author keywords: conservation genetics; Madagascar; microsatellites; strepsirrhines
TL;DR: Overall genetic diversity, in terms of allelic richness and observed heterozygosity, was high in the species and is the highest among all published lemur estimates to date, while the effects of continued isolation and fragmentation, coupled with climate‐driven environmental instability, will likely impede the long‐term viability of the species.
