OTTER 3.3 Reference Manual [article]

William McCune
2003 arXiv   pre-print
OTTER is a resolution-style theorem-proving program for first-order logic with equality.  ...  OTTER is coded in ANSI C, is free, and is portable to many different kinds of computer.  ...  Given a conjecture, OTTER can search for a proof, and MACE can look for a counterexample, usually from the same input file. MACE 2.0 is included in the standard OTTER 3.3 distribution packages.  ...

The European otter population of L. l. lutra were clustered together with its subspecies, L. l. chinensis rather than the same subspecies, Korean otter population.  ...  Although the Japanese otter is regarded as a distinct species from the Eurasian otter (L. lutra), its phylogeny and taxonomic status are based on limited information on morphological and genetic data,  ...  Acknowledgments We gratefully express our gratitude to all who donated Otter samples for this study: The National Museum of Nature and Science, Tokyo, Japan and Korean Otter Research Center (KORC), Hwacheon-Gun  ...

2016 PLoS ONE  
The Japanese otter (JO1) collected in Kanagawa was deeply nested in the Eurasian otter clade, whereas the Japanese otter (JO2) collected in Kochi formed a distinct independent lineage in the Lutra clade  ...  We observed that the two Japanese otters had close relationships with Eurasian otters, forming a monophyletic group (100% bootstrap probability).  ...  Protein-coding regions, CR, L-origin, and non-coding regions were identified manually by referring to the previously reported entire mitochondrial sequences of Eurasian otters (EF672696 and FJ236015).  ...

Evaluating river otter demography using noninvasive genetic methods

Kristin E. Brzeski, Micaela Szykman Gunther, Jeffrey M. Black
2013 Journal of Wildlife Management  
The Humboldt Bay region had a high density of river otters (0.93 otters/km) as compared to other coastal systems; resource attributes of Humboldt Bay could contribute to this difference.  ...  Our objective was to establish baseline demographic information for an understudied river otter population in northern California by estimating river otter abundance using noninvasive genetic sampling,  ...  Noninvasive genetic techniques are especially appropriate for evaluating river otter abundance because otters regularly deposit scat and other obvious markings (intestinal mucus referred to as jellies)  ...

Assessing noninvasive hair and fecal sampling for monitoring the distribution and abundance of river otter

Chris J. Johnson, Dexter P. Hodder, Shannon Crowley
2013 Ecological research  
Body snares were more effective at collecting otter hair, but there was relatively little additional cost to using both sampling instruments.  ...  However, the noninvasive techniques did not represent the full distribution and fine-scale movements of otter, as observed using radiotelemetry.  ...  The pooled home range of all telemetered otter was 3.3 times the size of the home range inferred using hair samples (Table 3) .  ...
