This paper presents important faunistic records including location data with all details conducted in the Czech and Slovak Republics during 2020. Four new non-native species, Arion intermedius, Ambigolimax valentianus, Clathrocaspia knipowitschii and Krynickillus melanocephalus, were recorded outdoors in Slovakia. Radix lagotis was genetically conf...

Mollusc fauna of the Prokopské údolí Nature Reserve in Prague (Czech Republic) has been revised. The current research follows up on the monitoring that took place there at five-year intervals in the years 1984–2009. In the 1980s, 43 land snail and seven aquatic species were recorded, while in 2020 the list included 56 land snail and three aquatic s...

Full-text available
Mollusc fauna of three protected areas in the capital of the Czech Republic, Prague, was revised after 25 years (Hvězda Game Reserve, Petřín) or studied for the first time (Vyšehrad). In total, 56 molluscs species were found and the survival of endangered species Vertigo angustior and Nesovitrea petronella in the Hvězda Game Reserve was verified. G...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Identification and knowledge of representatives of fauna and flora are integral part of primary science education. A board game was created for this purpose. The crucial problem in the science education is the selection of basic subject matter, including typical organisms. The goal of this contribution is to present the methodology of model organis...
Article
Empty mollusc shells provide evidence of the species' presence over various temporal and spatial scales. However, the persistence of the shell can differ depending on the levels of soil pH and soil humidity. Although this is generally known, there are virtually no experimental data on shell decomposition rate and its relation to shell size and site...
Article
The overall impact of herbivores on plant population dynamics is determined by a combination of herbivore impact on individuals and frequency of herbivore occurrence within the plant population. While the first component is well-explored, the second is much less studied and may depend both on plant individual traits and on local environmental condi...
Book
Full-text available
The science field trips in educational practice publication intends to examine various aspects of the topic of field trips at schools and to interconnect all these approaches. The book is a result of collaboration of respected experts in various fields of science as well as educational theorists attempting to find common language in order to produc...
Article
Full-text available
In the autumn of 2014, we conducted a malacological survey at 23 freshwater bodies in the Danubian lowland, SW Slovakia. We aimed to conduct a malacological inventory of semi-natural sites of a high conservation value. During the fieldwork, we used conventional methods of sampling; mostly sweeping by a hemispherical metal kitchen strainer from both...
Article

A total of 95 species of molluscs were recorded in the Kačák brook valley (Central Bohemia, Czech Republic), in its upper and middle part. Most of the terrestrial survey was conducted in the woody part of the studied area, therefore woodland gastropods represent 31% of the total species number, followed by generalists, hygrophilous and steppe speci...
Article
Soil and litter fungi can colonise and decompose many natural materials, including highly resilient proteinaceous compounds of animal origin. The shells of terrestrial gastropods are formed from such a compound (conchiolin) combined with inorganic calcium carbonate. In this study, we investigated fungal communities colonising empty shells of the co...
Article
Full-text available
Pentaster cepaeophilus gen. et sp. nov. (Pezizomycotina inc. sed.) is proposed for a fungus colonizing surface of empty shells of the land snail Cepaea hortensis. The genus is characterised by melanised, multiseptate staurosporous conidia with five arms seceding rhexolytically. The conidia are unique in that two arms form a central axis and three a...
Article
Full-text available
In 2010, several new sites of the dune snail Cernuella neglecta (Draparnaud, 1805) were documented relatively far from their previously known sites in the Czech Republic. Cernuella neglecta was found at these new sites in front of villas, on dry ruderal meadows and in urban areas. The anthropic origin of those populations is probable. C. neglecta i...
