ENERGY REQUIREMENTS OF ADULT CAPE VULTURES (Gyps coprotheres) Joins KOMEN The State Museum of Namibia, P.O. Box 1203, Windhoek, Namibia ABSTRACT.--Outdoor feeding trials were used to determine gross energy intake, energy assimilation efficiency and metabolizable energy intake of captive adult Cape Vultures (Gyps coprotheres).
The investigations of this study were concerned with growth, energy requirements and nutritional status of hand- reared and wild nestlings, and the energy requirements of captive adult and immature Cape Vultures. From these data annual food requirements of the Magaliesberg Cape Vultures were estimated. Growth and food requirements. Oct 29, 2015 · The following study evaluates the overt toxic potential of carprofen (CRP), flunixin (FXN) and phenylbutazone (PBZ) in Old world vultures in relation to historic toxicity data for diclofenac and ketoprofen, with the Cape vulture (Gyps coprotheres) being the indicator species. The toxic potential of Cited by: 9.
The Cape vulture or Cape griffon (Gyps coprotheres), also known as "Kolbe's vulture", is an Old World vulture in the family Accipitridae.It is endemic to southern Africa, and is found mainly in South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, and in some parts of northern Namibia.It nests on cliffs and lays one egg per year. Since 2015, it has been classified as Endangered.Family: Accipitridae. Following the intramuscular administration of meloxicam to six adult Cape vultures, meloxicam took on average 0.56 h to reach the maximum plasma concentration of 92.79 μg/ml. The profiles achieved from all the birds were in general very similar with the exception of one bird with a Tmax of 1 h.Author: Emmanuel Oluwasegun Adawaren, Lillian Mukandiwa, John Chipangura, Kerri Wolter, Vinny Naidoo.
