These findings are of importance to epidemiologic investigations because current dogma regarding host specificity may dissuade laboratories from pursuing identification of this fastidious bacterium in hosts beyond the subfamily Caprinae
. Improved diagnostic methods to increase detection sensitivity are warranted based on information provided in this report (online Technical Appendix).

The symbol for the new year starting on February 19 is the "yang," which can refer to any member of the caprinae
subfamily - or even beyond - depending on what additional Chinese character it is paired up with.
The Himalayas and associated mountains offer home to about 31 species (38.7%) of Caprinae
found worldwide the richest in any part of the world (Schakleton 1997).
Sheep and goats are closely related as both are in the subfamily Caprinae
. However they are separate species so hybrids rarely occur and are always infertile.

Presence of a protostyle indicates the tooth represents a Bovinae such as Bison rather than a Caprinae
such as Bootherium.
Ovis aries (sheep), member of the Bovidae family and sub family Caprinae
is one of the oldest domesticated species, has been used for wool, milk, meat and skins from thousands of years through out the world .
