Prevalences in a particular avian host species also varied between study sites and years, and the impact of vectors being the most important was considered while comparing prevalences from different studies.

Key threats still in place at the Syrian breeding quarters are human disturbance during settling and incubation, chick depredation by ravens, uncontrolled hunting and habitat degradation, and recommendations on how to enhance the breeding performance and ensure the survival of this colony in the future are given.
Satellite tracking reveals the migration route and wintering area of the Middle East population of Critically Endangered northern bald ibis Geronticus eremita
Abstract Since its discovery in 2002 the small colony of northern bald ibis Geronticus eremita in the central Syrian desert remains at perilously low numbers, despite good productivity and some…
Acoustic Repertoire of the Philippine Tarsier (Tarsius syrichta fraterculus) and Individual Variation of Long-Distance Calls
This study provides the first evidence of individual variation in the long-distance calls performed by tarsiers, and provides a basis for future comparison within as well as between tarsier species taxonomy.
The origins and spread of domestic horses from the Western Eurasian steppes
The results reject the commonly held association between horseback riding and the massive expansion of Yamnaya steppe pastoralists into Europe around 3000 bc, and reveal that modern domestic horses ultimately replaced almost all other local populations as they expanded rapidly across Eurasia from about 2000 bc.
African Odyssey project – satellite tracking of black storks Ciconia nigra breeding at a migratory divide
The African Odyssey project focuses on studying the migration of the black stork Ciconia nigra breeding at a migratory divide. In 1995� 2001, a total of 18 black storks breeding in the Czech Republic…
Accounting for the low survival of the Critically Endangered northern bald ibis Geronticus eremita on a major migratory flyway
Abstract The poor survival rate of immature northern bald ibises Geronticus eremita during their first years spent outside the natal site is driving the last known wild colony of the migratory…

Summary The long-range, migratory eastern relict population of Northern Bald Ibis Geronticus eremita has been steadily declining since the time of discovery in 2002, despite the protection programme…
Natal dispersal of black kites from Slovakia
Three black kite ( Milvus migrans migrans ) pulli (siblings, BK1, BK2, and BK3) from the same nest in eastern Slovakia were tagged with telemetry (GPS/GSM) loggers on 1 July 2016. BK1 (female), BK2…
