Staphylococcus aureus, in particular its enterotoxigenic strain, is a well-known pathogen that causes food poisoning. The objective of this study was to investigate the prevalence of S. aureus, according to methicillin resistance and enterotoxin profile. S. aureus strains were isolated from different foods. Suspected S. aureus colonies were used to detect both methicillin resistance and enterotoxin genes by multiplex PCR. Out of a total of 325 colonies analyzed, 92 were shown to be Staphylococcus aureus...

West African crocodylians are among the most threatened and least studied crocodylian species globally. Assessing population status and establishing a basis for population monitoring is the highest priority action for this region. Monitoring of crocodiles is influenced by many factors that affect detectability, including environmental variables and individual or population-level wariness. We investigated how these factors affect detectability and counts of the Critically Endangered Mecistops cataphractus and the newly recognized Crocodylus suchus. We implemented 195...
