Fast and efficient DNA-based method for winter diet analysis from stools of three cervids: moose, red deer, and roe deer
TLDR
This fast, cost-efficient, and simple method proved also to be reliable for the diet analysis of red deer and roe deer and to be a valuable tool in forest and conservation management, as well as a way of enhancing ecological studies focusing on the impact of herbivores on the ecosystems.
Abundance and Species Diversity of Fungi in Rivers with Various Contaminations
TLDR
The study results suggest that the most important factors influencing the structure of mycoplankton in rivers include pH of water, content of organic matter, degree of anthropogenic pollution, and streamflow rate.
Unexpected population genetic structure of European roe deer in Poland: an invasion of the mtDNA genome from Siberian roe deer
TLDR
The population genetic structure of the European roe deer in Poland is inferred from mitochondrial (CR and cyt b) and sex‐linked markers (ZFX, SRY, DBY4 and DBY8) and it is suggested that C. pygargus could have extended its range as far west as Central Europe after last glacial maximum.
Complex patterns of population genetic structure of moose, Alces alces, after recent spatial expansion in Poland revealed by sex-linked markers
TLDR
It is revealed that a variety of different factors—bottleneck, the presence of relict, autochthonous populations, translocations, limited female dispersal, and the colonization from the east and north—are responsible for the observed complex pattern of population genetic structure after demographic and spatial expansion of moose in Poland.
Sex-biased polyparasitism in moose (Alces alces) based on molecular analysis of faecal samples
Mitochondrial DNA Diversity in the Moose, Alces alces, from Northeastern Poland: Evidence for Admixture in a Bottlenecked Relic Population in the Biebrza Valley
TLDR
The results indicate that the moose population in the Biebrza valley experienced severe bottleneck and could be regarded as a relic group of moose that is very distinct from others in Europe.
Admixture promotes genetic variation in bottlenecked moose populations in eastern Poland
TLDR
Investigation of bottlenecks that occurred in the nineteenth century and the first half of twentieth century and admixture after moose populations expanded demographically and spatially in eastern Poland after the Second World War found female-biased sex ratio in nonharvestedMoose populations inhabiting eastern Poland.
Purifying Selection, Density Blocking and Unnoticed Mitochondrial DNA Diversity in the Red Deer, Cervus elaphus
TLDR
A significant signal for purifying selection was found in this study that may explain the narrowness of the contact zone and suggest that in contemporary red deer populations in Poland, the phylogeographic pattern is well preserved, and long-term processes still play a major role.
