atrox has a head-size that allows it to overcome constraints of its gape, its capacity to subdue and ingest large prey like a lagomorph
is probably restricted by mass rather than body size of prey (Greene, 1983).
He applied this identification scheme to lagomorph
material from 18 paleontological and archaeological deposits in central Texas.
Tularemia is a zoonotic disease caused by Francisella tularensis, a highly infectious, gram-negative coccobacillus found in lagomorphs
(rabbits and hares), rodents, and arthropods throughout the Northern Hemisphere.
According to studies conducted in North and South America, this hawk preys on a wide spectrum of prey including lagomorphs
, small mammals, birds, reptiles, and insects (Jaksic et al.
Animal studies have indicated that type A isolates are often associated with lagomorphs
(rabbits and hares), while type B isolates are more often obtained from rodents (12,17).
Diet of bobcats on my study area was similar to that reported from other areas; lagomorphs
and rodents were the most common prey (Anderson and Lovallo, 2003).
By comparison, VP6 of CTFV showed no similarity with this rabbit protein (8), which may be the result of insertion of a sequence encoding a lagomorph
protein into segment 7 of EYAV.
No other species of lagomorph
occurs within the mixed-coniferous forest of the Sacramento Mountains (Frey, 2004).
2), which may correspond to the upper incisors of a lagomorph
(see Cuffey & Hattin 1965).
Thus, the capture of one lagomorph
would represent a greater return on the hunting investment made by bobcats.
The eastern cottontail is the only lagomorph
in northwest Indiana.
Remains of eight orders of land mammals, including insectivores, chiropterans, a lagomorph
, a large carnivore, rodents, horses, a prosynthetocerine, and a gomphothere, have been recovered.
Here only one small mammal, the lagomorph

This revealed clear sub-regional patterns, with the majority of lagomorph
remains coming from the south-eastern French sites.
