Contribution to the knowledge of variability of the penis bone (baculum) in Canis lupus from Slovakia (Carnivora: Canidae) [Príspevok k poznatkom o variabilite penisovej kosti (bakula) Canis lupus zo Slovenska (Carnivora: Canidae)]

Despite the large number of studies on variability of the baculum (os penis) in several species of carnivores, there are very little detailed data on the Eurasian wolf (Canis lupus). The aim of this study was to investigate quantitative characteristics of the baculum size and relationships between…

Species diversity of small mammals in a highland recreation cottage within 40 years (Rodentia, Eulipotyphla, Chiroptera) [Druhová diverzita drobných savců v horské rekreační chatě během 40 let (Rodentia, Eulipotyphla, Chiroptera)]

In 1969–2012, the following species of small mammals were recorded in a recreation cottage on the ridge of the Orlické hory Mts. (990 m a. s. l.) by trapping, collecting of dead specimens or by other methods: Apodemus flavicollis, A. sylvaticus, Clethrionomys glareolus, Microtus arvalis, M.…

Taxonomic revision of the Palaearctic rodents (Rodentia). Part 2. Sciuridae: Urocitellus, Marmota and Sciurotamias [Taxonomická revise palearktických hlodavců (Rodentia). Část 2.Sciuridae: Urocitellus, Marmota and Sci

A revision of family group names for squirrels (Rodentia: Sciuridae) uncovered a neglected name Arctomyinae Gray, 1821 which predates Marmotinae Pocock, 1923. We propose a new subtribe Ammospermophilina, to encompass the Nearctic Ammospermophilus and Notocitellus and holds a basal position in a…

Nové nálezy Felis silvestris v České republice (Carnivora: Felidae) [New records of Felis silvestris in the Czech Republic (Carnivora: Felidae)]

The wildcat (Felis silvestris) population in the territory of the current Czech Republic decreased already during the second half of the 18th century and the occurrence of this species was very scarce in the 20th century. No reliable evidence of its occurrence was available since the last shot of an…

Negative trend reversal after 16 years of constant growth: The case of Rhinolophus hipposideros in an Austrian mass hibernaculum (Chiroptera: Rhinolophidae) [Návrat negativního trendu po 16 letech stálého nárustu: případ Rhinolophus hipposideros

The populations of bats hibernating in Hermann’s Cave, Lower Austria, have been intensively studied for almost 160 years. Here we present the population trend of Rhinolophus hipposideros during the period 1985–2013. In contrast to wintering populations in nearby caves in Styria/Austria as well as in…

Výsledky sčítania netopierov v zimoviskách Národného parku Muránska planina 2002–2013 (Chiroptera) [Results of bat census in hibernacula of the Muránska planina National Park, Slovakia, in 2002–2013 (Chiroptera)]

Winter bat census in hibernacula of the Muránska planina National Park was carried out in 2002–2013 and its results are presented here. In 37 roosts (out of 41 potential roosts checked, i.e. 90.2%) hibernating bats were found; altogether 19 bat species were recorded. Rhinolophus hipposideros was the…

Některé nepublikované nálezy Apodemus agrarius v Čechách a na Moravě v návaznosti na současný stav znalostí o jejím rozšíření (Rodentia: Muridae) [Some unpublished records of Apodemus agrarius in Bohemia and Moravia in relation to the curren

The southern margin of the distribution range of Apodemus agrarius shifts from time to time from central Moravia more or less southwards close to the Austrian border. This is documented by published and our older unpublished data from the 20th century, and also by some recent records from the last…

The largest hibernaculum of Barbastella barbastellus in Central Europe (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) [Największe zimowisko Barbastella barbastellus w środkowej Europie (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae)]

A mass hibernaculum of the barbastelle was found in an old sewer collector of the former ammunition factory at Krzystkowice (a part of Nowogród Bobrzański) near Zielona Góra, western Poland, in 2005. The highest number of barbastelles was observed there in the year of discovery – altogether 1,870…
