Assessing the suitability of central European landscapes for the reintroduction of Eurasian lynx
Summary 1 After an absence of almost 100 years, the Eurasian lynx Lynx lynx is slowly recovering in Germany along the German–Czech border. Additionally, many reintroduction schemes have been
Troglotrema acutum (Digenea) from carnivores in the Czech Republic
It was found out that neither spatial nor vertical distributions of T. acutum correspond to the present distribution of the first intermediate hosts determined so far (small prosobranchiate snails of Bythinella genus), and a hypothesis has been formulated that theFirst intermediate hosts of this trematode species may be with high probability also other species of proso branchiatesnails, whose distribution is not limited by altitude.
Variation of mitochondrial DNA in the Hipposideros caffer complex (Chiroptera: Hipposideridae) and its taxonomic implications
A phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene challenged the hypothesis of two cryptic species of Hipposideros caffer and recovered four distinct lineages with deep internal divergences.
Hidden diversity in Senegalese bats and associated findings in the systematics of the family Vespertilionidae
New taxa and new systematic arrangements show that there is still much to resolve in the vespertilionids and that West Africa is a biogeographic hotspot with more diversity to be discovered.
Presence of Skrjabingylus petrowi (Nematoda) in central Europe
The morphometry of the specimens in the present study was in agreement with that of the original description of S. petrowi and the distribution of this species in Europe is discussed.
Karyotypic Variation in Rhinolophid and Hipposiderid Bats (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae, Hipposideridae)
Variation is documented in the present paper by examination of non-differentially stained karyotypes in 10 species belonging to genera Rhinolophus and Hipposideros from western Africa and southern India.
Morphologically Uniform Bats Hipposideros aff. Ruber (Hipposideridae) Exhibit High Mitochondrial Genetic Diversity in Southeastern Senegal
Detailed multidimensional analysis of skull measurements indicated slight morphological differences between the two genetic forms, and paraphyletic relationship of the two Senegalese forms was revealed, with the less abundant form from Senegal forming a monophyletic group with that from Benin.
The origin and genetic variability of the Czech sika deer population
Analysis of two mitochondrial markers confirmed that the founder individuals of the Czech population originated from both native island (Japanese Islands) and native mainland (Far East Russia) populations, and showed that the genetic variability ofThe Czech sika deer population is lower than the variability of the native Japanese population, but higher than that of the sampled part of thenative Russian population.
Stabilization system for waste water treatment and use. Part 2. Biology.
A critical analysis of the performance of the system allowed the proposal of its optimization, which would consist in the complete of the entirely different biocoenoses in three consecutive basins preceding the stabilization pond.
Stichorchis subtriquetrus (Digenea: Cladorchidae) - back to thefauna of the Czech Republic after 200 years
The first record of the trematode Stichorchis subtriquetrus is reported from European beaver (Castor fiber) in the Czech Republic and the issue of stichorChosis epizootology of beavers is discussed.
