The main aim of ex situ programmes in conservation is to provide a suitable source of individuals for future reintroductions or reinforcement of existing populations. A fundamental prerequisite is creating and maintaining healthy and sustainable captive populations that show high levels of phenotypic and genetic similarity to their wild counterpart...
Dispersal is a key process for the maintenance of intraspecific genetic diversity by ensuring gene flow within and between populations. Despite the ongoing expansion of large carnivores in Europe, lynx populations remain fragmented, isolated, and threatened by inbreeding and loss of genetic diversity. In the course of large carnivore monitoring in...
Even though populations of many large carnivores are expanding throughout Europe, the Eurasian lynx population in the Western Carpathians seems unable to spread beyond the western boundaries of its current distributional range. Many factors, both extrinsic and intrinsic, can influence the potential for range expansion: landscape fragmentation, nata...
The population of the Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) in the Czech Republic occurs on the edge of the species distribution in the Western Carpathians. The population is threatened by many factors such as habitat fragmentation, migration barriers and poaching. Status of the population in the transboundary area of the Czech and Slovak Republics was investi...
Monitoring of European wildcat in the Western Carpathians using camera-trapping and hair-trapping. Genetic monitoring of European wildcat including study of crossbreeding with domestic cats.
Genetic monitoring using non-invasive genetic sampling of native Carpathian and reintroduced Bohemian-Bavarian-Austrian lynx populations. The study of evolutionary processes related to centre-periphery hypothesis, founder effect and inbreeding. Analysis of social structure of lynx population.
