  • Abstract. The winter diet of the great cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo) was studied by means of examining regurgitated pellets, individual fish bones and fish remains collected from below the roosting trees in two sites on the River Vltava in Vyšší Brod and at Slapy Reservoir, Czech Republic, and by analysis of stomach contents of birds shot on the River Vltava in Prague. Using diagnostic bones (os pharyngeum, dentale, maxillare, praeoperculare) and own linear regression equations between… CONTINUE READING
