Reproductive suppression in female Alpine marmots, Marmota marmota
We studied mechanisms responsible for reproductive skew in female Alpine marmots. In each social group, only dominant females produced weaned young although subordinate females had similar body… Expand
Current status and distribution of golden jackals Canis aureus in Europe
The golden jackal Canis aureus is one of the most widespread canid species with a range covering areas of central, eastern and southern Europe, northern Africa and parts of Asia. Distribution of the… Expand

The increasing number of deer-vehicle-accidents (DVAs) and the resulting economic costs have promoted numerous studies on behavioural and environmental factors which may contribute to the quantity,… Expand
The mating system of the brown bear Ursus arctos
mam_184 12..34 1. Research on mating systems and reproductive strategies is valuable for providing ethological knowledge, important for the management and conservation of a species, and in a broader… Expand

Populations of European hares (Lepus europaeus) have experienced a dramatic decline throughout Europe in recent decades. European hares are assumed to prefer weeds over arable crops, and weed… Expand
Postnatal development and thermoregulation in the precocial European hare (Lepus europaeus)
Abstract. We investigated postnatal development of captive juvenile European hares (Lepus europaeus) with respect to growth, food intake and thermoregulation. Leverets increased their body weight on… Expand
Male-caused failure of female reproduction and its adaptive value in alpine marmots (Marmota marmota)
The effect of dietary fat content on lactation energetics in the European hare (Lepus europaeus).
European hares selectively feed on plants with high fat and hence energy content. We hypothesized that these dietary requirements limit the ability of hares to adjust daily food intake during periods… Expand
