1.  Cranial anatomy of the Gal谩pagos marine iguana Amblyrhynchus cristatus (Squamata: Iguanidae).LinkIT
Paparella I, Caldwell MW
Anatomical record (Hoboken, N.J. : 2007)Anat Rec (Hoboken)Cranial anatomy of the Gal谩pagos marine iguana Amblyrhynchus cristatus (Squamata: Iguanidae).10.1002/ar.24797Amblyrhynchus cristatus, the marine iguana, is unique among the ~7,000 species of living limbed lizards as it has successfully evolved adaptations that allow it to live in both terrestrial and marine environments. This species is endemic to the Gal谩pagos Archipelago and has evolved a specialized feeding behavior, consuming primarily the algae that grow on the rocky seafloor. The intriguing questions arising around the evolution of the marine iguana concerns the use of exaptations of terrestrial features for aquatic and specifically marine adaptations. However, the lack of fundamental information about its anatomy currently prevents us from understanding how it became adapted to such a peculiar lifestyle in comparison to all other iguanids. The goal of this study is to provide the first ever description of the skull, mandible, and hyoid of Amblyrhynchus. We examined several specimens of marine iguana, including skeletal, wet, and ct-scanned material, and individuals at different ontogenetic stages. We also analyzed specimens of all other modern iguanid genera (Conolophus, Iguana, Ctenosaura, Cyclura, Dipsosaurus, Brachylophus, Sauromalus) in order to make comparisons between Amblyrhynchus and its closest relatives. We were able to identify several autapomorphic features that distinguish the marine iguana from all other iguanids. These unique morphologies are mostly associated with the modified configuration of the snout (nasal chamber), increased muscle attachments in the temporal-postorbital region of the skull, and dentition. Since Amblyrhynchus is the only nonophidian squamate currently able to exploit the ocean at least for some vital functions (i.e., feeding), we used comparisons to fossil marine lizards (e.g., mosasaurids) to discuss some of these unique traits. The new cranial features described for Amblyrhynchus may represent a source of novel morphological characters for use in future phylogenetic analyses of iguanian (or squamate) relationships, which will then serve as the foundation for the exploration of evolutionary patterns and processes that led to the development of such unique adaptations.漏 2021 American Association for Anatomy.PaparellaIlariaIhttps://orcid.org/0000-0002-4645-5962Department of Biological Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.CaldwellMichael WMWhttps://orcid.org/0000-0002-2377-3925Department of Biological Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.engAlberta Society of Professional Biologists Robin Leech Graduate Scholarship in Biological SciencesKay Ball Memorial Graduate Student Research Travel AwardUniversity of Alberta23458NSERC Discovery GrantJournal Article20211015United StatesAnat Rec (Hoboken)1012927751932-8486IMAmblyrhynchusGal谩pagosIguanidaeSquamataaquatic adaptationscranial anatomymarine iguanaontogenyosteology20210824202107202021082520211016602021101660202110151249aheadofprint3465288510.1002/ar.24797REFERENCES, 2021</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>2.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>Isolation of Salmonella spp. from black spiny-tailed iguana (<b>Ctenosaura</b> similis) meat commercialised in markets of Le贸n city, Nicaragua.</a><a href=http://ubio.org/tools/linkit.php?map%5B%5D=all&link_type=2&url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>R铆os R, Flores B, Mora-S谩nchez B, Torres D, Sheleby-El铆as J, Jir贸n W, Balc谩zar JL<br><font color=gray><i>Veterinary medicine and scienceVet Med SciIsolation of Salmonella spp. from black spiny-tailed iguana (Ctenosaura similis) meat commercialised in markets of Le贸n city, Nicaragua.10.1002/vms3.654The black spiny-tailed iguana (Ctenosaura similis) is an endemic animal in Mesoamerica, whose meat is consumed by the local population.Because the black spiny-tailed iguana may be potential reservoirs of pathogens, this study aimed to isolate and characterise Salmonella spp. in their meat commercialised in markets of the city of Le贸n, Nicaragua.Thirteen specimens were analysed for the isolation of Salmonella spp., as well as their antimicrobial resistance patterns, including the presence of genes encoding extended-spectrum ?-lactamases.Salmonella spp. isolates were found in eight out of 13 samples, with S. enterica serovar Enteritidis being found in six out of eight samples. Moreover, eight Salmonella spp. isolates were resistant to amoxicillin plus clavulanic acid and cephalexin, but sensitive to other tested antibiotics. The blaSHV gene was detected in seven out of eight Salmonella spp. isolates, followed by the blaTEM (two out of eight) and blaCXT-M (one out of eight) genes.These findings represent an important contribution to the implementation of appropriate strategies to prevent foodborne diseases.漏 2021 The Authors.
