Platinum pharmacokinetics in sulphur-crested cockatoos
(Cacatua galerita) following single-dose cisplatin infusion.
Even large parrots like Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are vulnerable to birds of prey.
1071 depict an Australasian species; describing it as a White Cockatoo, also known as an Umbrella Cockatoo, (Cacatua alba), a Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (Cacatua galerita), or a Yellow-crested Cockatoo, also known as a Lesser Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, (Cacatua sulphurea).
The Royal Botanic Garden is home to a seasonally variable population of sulphur-crested cockatoos with up to 150 individuals present at any one time (Martin unpubl.).
The use of plastic live-stock ear tags as patagial markers on sulphur-crested cockatoos resulted in a 100% resighting rate and 14 705 valid resightings over four years.
Carboplatin administration in sulphur-crested cockatoos
(Cacatua galerita): clinical observations.
Abstract: To evaluate the health and nutritional status of 3 wild Australian psittacine species, plasma and hepatic mineral concentrations and plasma biochemical values were measured in wild-caught galahs (Eolophus roseicapilla), long-billed corellas (Cacatua tenuirostris), and sulphur-crested cockatoos (Cacatua galerita).
