This paper addresses a re-visitation study, carried out in 2020, relating to the presence ofherbaceous vegetation in high-altitude areas where vegetation had been already studied in 2003. The study focuses on two high-altitude habitats of the Majella National Park: screes and small dolines. The aim is to monitor the species composition and its past...

This study aimed to provide new insights about antimicrobial resistance genes abundance and microbial communities of wild and domestic ruminants in wildlife-livestock interface. In total, 88 fecal samples were recovered from Apennine chamois, red deer, goat, cattle and sheep, and were collected in pools. The populations under study were selected ba...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the resistance patterns against selected critically and highly important antibiotics (quinupristin/dalfopristin, vancomycin, and linezolid) in 48 Enterococcus isolates obtained from wild (red deer and Apennine chamois) and domestic (cattle, sheep, and goats) ruminants living with varying degrees of sympatry in...

The aim of this study was to determine and characterize potential resistance mechanisms against selected Critically Important Antibiotics in Escherichia coli isolates collected from wild and domestic ruminants living in the Maiella National Park, in Central Italy. A total of 38 isolates were obtained from red deer, Apennine chamois, cattle, sheep,...

In this study, a multi-pathogens survey was conducted to verify the sanitary status of two Italian wolf packs of Majella National Park. Twenty fecal samples (10/pack) were collected using a sampling protocol, based on the combining data from radio-collared wolves with geographic information system (GIS) analysis, allowing to mark off the home range...

Beyond the good news, such as presence of females with cubs in the recently re-colonized area of the Majella National Park, factors like human disturbance, anthropogenic food availability and lack of awareness are threatening Apennine brown bear recovery.
Article
Full-text available
Despite its critical conservation status, no formal estimate of the Apennine brown bear (Ursus arctos marsicanus) distribution has ever been attempted, nor a coordinated effort to compile and verify all recent occurrences has ever been ensured. We used 48331 verified bear location data collected by qualified personnel from 2005–2014 in the central...

Even though telemetry monitoring is an essential tool to investigate a species ecology and to implement conservation actions, until 2014 only bears living in the Abruzzo, Lazio e Molise National Park (PNALM) had actually been GPS-collared. The presence of the female F1.99 in the Natural Reserve Monte Genzana Alto Gizio (RNRMGAG) and the Majella Nat...

The Apennine brown bear is an endemic subspecies distributed in the south-central Italian Apennines, with the center of its core area located in the Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise National Park (PNALM). The population is highly threatened by factors directly or indirectly related to human activities, such as poaching, traffic accidents, habitat fragment...
Article
The Brown bear (Ursus arctos Linnaeus, 1758) occupies contiguous areas in Eastern and Northern Europe. In Western Europe, the largest remnant populations occur in Cantabria, Spain and the Apennines, Italy. Under Italian law the bear and its occupied range are protected. The occupied range of the Apennine brown bear includes Majella National Park. H...

Scarce information is available on the current status of Apennine populations of Alectoris graeca. In this paper, data on re-cent distribution of the species in each Apennine region and data on census in several Apennine areas are reported. In Marche region, the size of population was estimated in 110-137 pairs and maximum density (1.25 pairs/ km 2...

AA was looking for gulls along the Adriatic coast at Punta Aderci di Vasto, Abruzzo, central Italy, when he noticed an unfamiliar wader with a flock of Sanderlings and Dunlins. At first glance, it looked like an odd Greenshank, but it was duller and darker grey overall, and had lead-grey legs. Realising that he had never seen such a bird, he immedi...
