Article
The introduction of alien fish species in wetland ecosystems could have a great impact on freshwater communities and ecological processes. Despite fish introduction has been noticed as one of the principal cause of freshwater extinctions, ecosystem processes alteration, and change in aquatic community assemblage, very few data about impact on fresh...

Animal personality is a relatively neglected field in amphibian research. In this study we assessed the influence of stomach flushing, a non-lethal technique used in amphibian dietary studies, on the boldness behaviour of the cave salamander Speleomantes strinatii. The time of emergence from a shelter located in an unfamiliar environment (a proxy f...

The Sicilian Pond Turtle, Emys trinacris (family Emydidae), is a small-sized freshwater turtle (straight midline carapace length to 172 mm in females, 156 mm in males), endemic to the island of Sicily in Italy. It appears to be more widespread in the northern and central-western parts of the island, with the exclusion of Monti Peloritani and most o...

La testuggine palustre europea è tradizionalmente considerata una specie legata maggiormente ad ambienti planiziali di bassa quota, ma nelle aree più meridionali del suo areale di distribuzione può raggiungere anche quote di media-alta montagna. In questo studio presentiamo i risultati di un monitoraggio condotto nel 2018 che ha interessato quattro...

La presenza di Emys orbicularis all’interno della Riserva Naturale Torrile e Trecasali è nota da tempo, sebbene non siano mai stati condotti studi per approfondire la distribuzione e l'abbondanza della specie all’interno dell’area protetta. In questo lavoro preliminare sono presentati alcuni parametri di popolazione e alcuni aspetti morfometrici de...

Subterranean habitats are characterized by buffered climatic conditions in comparison to contiguous surface environments and, in general, subterranean biological communities are considered to be relatively constant. However, although several studies have described the seasonal variation of subterranean communities, few analyzed their variability ov...
Article
Population size is a fundamental state variable in ecology, and the analysis of temporal variation in abundance (i.e., detection of trends) is a prime objective in wildlife monitoring. However, population abundance cannot be directly observed because part of the population remains undetected and methods that account for imperfect detection are ofte...

Nell’attuale programmazione delle politiche agricole comunitarie le tematiche ecologiche ed ambientali stanno avendo, più che in passato, un ruolo rilevante e questa tendenza sembrerebbe confermata anche per il periodo post 2020. Per questo motivo, coloro ambiscono al conseguimento degli obiettivi della salvaguardia della biodiversità e delle conne...

Recently several projects have been implemented for the conservation of the European turtle Emys orbicularis, but few aspects of the captive-bred animals released into the wild have been described. In this note we report about the trophic habits of a small restocked population of the endemic subspecies E. o. ingauna that is now reproducing in NW It...

The lack of data relating to basic life-history and population dynamics is one of the gaps to be filled in order to develop a proper strategy for the conservation of the Sicilian Pond Turtle (Emys trinacris). In this study, we present the results of the first year of a multi-annual monitoring program focusing on a specific wetland area, located wit...
Conference Paper
Directive 2000/60/EC arises to develop an European-level regulatory framework capable of supporting integrated Community action in the field of water policy. General objectives are either to prevent the deterioration or to facilitate the improvement of aquatic environments and encourage the sustainable use of water resources. Fish community is one...

The need to identify no-killing monitoring methods for Anguilla anguilla L. stocks has become a crucial requirement according to a management and conservationist perspective. This paper reports the preliminary observations on the enforcement of Silvering Index (Acou et al., 2005) in several basins of the Liguria Region. This Index has been used in...

le informazioni sia sulla sistematica sia sulla biologia dei cestodi che inte- ressano gli anfibi europei sono molto limitate, e fino a poco tempo fa era noto un unico genere: Nematotaenia luhe, 1910 (ricci, 1988). Buriola et al. (2002; 2005) confrontando cestodi provenienti da esemplari parassita- ti di Speleomantes strinatii nell’appennino genove...

In this study we provide data on the population structure, sex ratio and evi- dence for reproduction in the wild for two populations of the invasive fre- shwater chelonian trachemys scripta elegans, in liguria (nW Italy). During a lIFe nature project, aiming to preserve the endangered autoctonous pond turtle Emys orbicularis ingauna in the Centa ri...

Comportamenti territoriali e aggressività verso conspecifici e individui di altre specie sono stati ampiamente descritti nei Pletodontidi nordamericani fin dagli anni ’70. Tali comportamenti sono essenzialmente legati alla spar- tizione degli habitat e delle risorse trofiche, ma sono state evidenziate anche cause riconducibili alla protezione del n...

Clay models are frequently used in ecological studies to estimate potential predation rates on small and cryptic vertebrates (Bateman et al. 2016). These models are easy to shape and they retain predator marks, allowing the identification of the body part attacked and of the predator. In herpetological studies, prey models are used to evaluate colo...

A seguito dell’incremento demografico del cormorano Phalacrocorax carbo palesatosi in Europa negli ultimi anni sono aumentati i conflitti tra questa specie ittiofaga ed alcune attività umane quali la pesca sportiva e l’acquacoltura. Tali interazioni sono dovute in Italia soprattutto all’incremento delle popolazioni svernanti della sottospecie Phala...

Captive breeding and reintroduction programs remain a powerful but divisive tool for management of threatened species, with a proven potential to avoid extinction, but low long-term success rates and high resource requirements. Monitoring the results of reintroductions is critical to be able to assess short- and long-term success, adjusting managem...
