Une enquete a ete entreprise sur le terrain pour recueillir des donnees sur la repartition actuelle des mammiferes terrestres de la peninsule du Sinai. Ce travail a couvert les principaux biotopes et de nombreuses localites. Diverses methodes de capture, en plus de l'observation directe des animaux, de leurs traces et d'autres indices de leur presence, ainsi que les indications donnees par les Bedouins, ont permis de collecter des indications sur la presence de 21 especes de mammiferes; en…

Biogographie et Ecologie historique du bouquetin de Nubie en Egypte

Historical ecology and biogeography is a field of research that necessitates the compilation of data in relation to the presence of animals, in a country or in a specific region, in order to retrace

THE VERTEBRATE FAUNA RECORDED FROM NORTHEASTERN SINAI, EGYPT

he vertebrate fauna was surveyed in ten major localities of northeastern Sinai over a period of 18 months (From September 2003 to February 2005, inclusive). A total of 27 species of reptiles, birds

From the Apennines to the Alps: recent range expansion of the crested porcupine Hystrix cristata L., 1758 (Mammalia: Rodentia: Hystricidae) in Italy

TLDR
Historical and social factors related to the progressive urbanization and the consequent abandonment of the traditional land use in mountain landscapes probably helped the re-expansion of forests and uncultivated fields.

Long live the alien: is high genetic diversity a pivotal aspect of crested porcupine (Hystrix cristata) long‐lasting and successful invasion?

TLDR
The level of genome‐wide diversity of H. cristata invasive populations is less important in explaining its successful invasion than species‐specific life‐history traits or the phylogeographic history in the native source range.

Notes on the Sand Cat, Felis margarita Loche, 1858

TLDR
The Sand Cat has remained one of the least known Speeles of FeHdae since its description over a Century ago, and when Ognev studied the first examples from Turkestan he was convinced that he had found not only a new species, but a new genus, giving it the name Eremailurus thinobius.
