Recent increases in wild boar populations in central Europe necessitated an evaluation of the current reproductive performance of this species. During a 2-year study, samples of ovaries and uteri were taken from wild boars from areas in the (northern) state of Lower Saxony and the (more southern) Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, in which wild boar have been(More)
In many parts of Europe, wild boar Sus scrofa population increase, and thus, high densities and dispersal into new areas are accompanied by economic problems. Due to many factors like insufficient hunting strategies as well as underestimation of population densities and reproduction rates, harvest rates seem to be insufficient. Thus, we calculated mortality(More)
The population density of wild boar in Lower Saxony, Germany has increased dramatically over the last decade. Today the high population causes extensive damages to crops and influences the occurrence and distribution of the Classical Swine Fever disease (CSF). Consequently the reduction of population density by hunting wild boar in zones of hog cholera is(More)
Die Ergebnisse der vorliegenden Untersuchung dokumentieren die Wirkung einer 00-Rapsfütterung unter definierten Bedingungen an Rehwild (n=8). Anhand der Ergebnisse klinischer, hämatologischer und pathologischer Untersuchungen des Rehwildes und laborchemischer Untersuchungen des verfütterten 00-Rapses werden Krankheitsverlauf und mögliche Ursachen(More)
The present study works for a list of requirements of animal protection on the commercial rearing of common pheasant. Therefore universally valid tags and requirements are evolved for feeding, illumination regiment in the rearing compartments and housing densities and for pheasants freedom from injury. The duty of the veterinary authorities for powerful(More)
The study presents the effects that different rearing methods of commercial pheasantries have on pheasants. The techniques applied by 17 commercial pheasantries in Northern Germany are specified. These techniques were exemplarily simulated on pheasants reared under defined conditions in special aviaries. The results illustrate the impact of the different(More)
The present paper is designed to give examples of possible fields of activities for veterinary surgeons in the areas of nature conservation and the protection of species. The committed veterinary surgeon, who is eager to extend his/her specialized knowledge obtained at the university will certainly find a sensible and satisfying occupation in the fields of(More)
Artificially reared pheasants had been released at an age of 10 weeks on two stands in a suitable habitat with a wild pheasant population in Lower Saxony, Germany. Two groups (200 pheasants reared in large fly-aviaries, 200 pheasants reared in dark stables) were bought from commercial breeders who offer pheasants for restocking wild populations. Some of the(More)
Schwarzwildexperten aus 13 Liindern trafen sich vom 19. bis 22. September 2002 zum vierten Internationalen Schwarzwildsymposium in Lousa, Portugal. Zu dieser internationalen Tagung hatte die biologische Abteilung der Universit~t von Aveiro eingeladen. Die Tagung galt einer Wildart, die weltweit stark zunehmende Bestandszahlen aufweist. Den derzeitigen(More)
Die Ergebnisse eines langjährigen Birkwild-Auswilderungsprojektes im Naturschutzgebiet „Großes Moor“ bei Gifhorn im östl. Niedersachsen verdeutlichen die Erfolgschancen einer kontrollierten Auswilderung von nachgezüchtetem Birkwild in einem durch vielerlei Nutzung erheblich beeinträchtigten Moorkomplex bei gleichzeitiger Durchführung von Biotoppflege(More)
