Carnivore and ungulate populations in the Beydaglari Mountains (Antalya, Turkey) : border region between Asia and Europe

  title={Carnivore and ungulate populations in the Beydaglari Mountains (Antalya, Turkey) : border region between Asia and Europe},
  author={Tamer Albayrak and Giorgos Giannatos and Bekir Kabasakal},
  journal={Polish Journal of Ecology},
Turkey is being a bridge be- tween Europe and Asia and it provides the natu- ral pathway for the spread of species between these continents. The Beydaglari Mountains and its surroundings (Antalya) host many Asian, European and Mediterranean faunal and floral elements and the location, which is considered as one of the most important faunal areas in Turkey especially for larger mammals. The study is the first systematic survey of the carnivores in the region which is based on photo trapping. The…

Caracal caracal (Carnivora: Felidae)

The caracal is a slender, medium-sized cat characterized by a short tail and long ear tufts and is found throughout Africa, north to the Arabian Peninsula, the Middle East, central and southwest Asia into India; its habitat includes arid woodlands, savanna, scrublands, hilly steppes, and arid mountainous regions.

Temporal Preference of Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx) in a Highland Forest in Northwestern Anatolia in Relation to Other Medium and Large Mammal Species

Abstract. In this study, we aimed to determine the daily activity patterns and seasonal activity variations of the Eurasian lynx in different habitats (forests and open lands) in a geographical

Hunting of hunted: an ensemble modeling approach to evaluate suitable habitats for caracals in India

Background Large-scale hunting and various anthropogenic pressures in the recent past have pushed the Asiatic caracal ( Caracal caracal schmitzi ), an elusive medium-sized and locally threatened

Genetic analysis of Turkish martens: Do two species of the genus Martes occur in Anatolia?

It is found that there was a genetically close relationship between the Turkish and the European stone marten populations, and the results suggest that Turkey was likely one of the refuges for M. foina during Pleistocene glacial periods and is one the centres of distribution of stone martens for Europe and the surrounding regions.

Genetic Analysis of Turkish lynx (Lynx lynx) Based on Mitochondrial DNA Sequences

Bayesian, Maximum Likelihood, Neighbor-Joining and Network analyses revealed that there was a significant genetic differentiation in the Eurasian lynx, in that at least there were two main mitochondrial lineages within the sampling area.

Human, domestic animal, Caracal (Caracal caracal), and other wildlife species interactions in a Mediterranean forest landscape

Presence of humans and domestic animal species are a common threat to wildlife in protected areas. Wildlife habitat has a particularly strong human presence in the Mediterranean Basin where human



Anthropogenic barriers to the distribution of the Grey Wolf (Canis lupus Linnaeus, 1758) in the Beydağları Mountains area, Turkey

Abstract Field observations, interviews with local people and Forestry Department workers and camera trapping were used to determine the status of wolves in the Beydağları Mountains and surroundings.

On the status and distribution of the Striped Hyaena, Hyaena hyaena, in Turkey

Abstract A review of literature records, many of them from the 19th and early 20th centuries, shows that the Striped Hyaena, Hyaena hyaena, has apparently always been rare in Turkey. The natural

Mammalian fauna of the Temessos National Park, Turkey

A checklist of the mammalian fauna of the National Park of Termessos, Southern Turkey, on the base of direct observations, interviews and a comparative analysis of the available literature, finds that the last Anatolian leopards seems to have disappeared from the region.

Phylogeography of the last surviving populations of Rhodian and Anatolian fallow deer (Dama dama dama L., 1758)

It is hypothesized that, during the foundation of this population of fallow deer, humans unknowingly preserved a remarkable portion of the original genetic diversity of the source population(s), found in no other study populations.

Biodiversity Hotspots in the Mediterranean Basin: Setting Global Conservation Priorities

Three main approaches have been taken in recent studies performed by international conservation organizations to define priority conservation areas in the Mediterranean Basin.

Stone marten (Martes foina) habitat in a Mediterranean ecosystem: effects of scale, sex, and interspecific interactions

Mediterranean ecosystems are inherently patchy, challenging habitat-use behavior. Certain mammalian carnivores take advantage of this patchiness by a strategy of habitat

Some conclusions are drawn on biodiversity and conservation of Tettigoniinae species in Anatolia and 23 species to be included in the 'IUCN Red List' under VU B2+ac are suggested.

Range of the Eurasian badger (Meles meles) in an agricultural area of northern Italy

From June 2000 to December 2003 a low-density badger population was studied by radiotelemetry in an area of agricultural lowland in northern Italy, finding that all badgers shared, although in different periods, one main sett located in the inner part of their ranges.
