How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

To provide the most comprehensive picture of species phylogeny and phylogeography of European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus), we analyzed mtDNA control region (610 bp) of 1469 samples of roe deer from Central and Eastern Europe and included into the analyses additional 1541 mtDNA sequences from GenBank from other regions of the continent. We detect...

In order to define the spatial interface between wild boar and domestic pigs in Europe, the ENETWILD consortium (www.enetwild.com) described in a preliminary report the different sources of data for domestic pigs at European scale, and developed a preliminary risk map of possible spatial interaction between both groups. This model explored and asse...
Article
ENETWILD consortium has developed methodologies for modelling wild boar abundance distribution based on hunting yield (HY) data. Although the methodologies reached an acceptable reliability, when models were downscaled to higher spatial resolution the predictions of absolute numbers of hunted animals tended to overprediction. Some important issues...
Article

The Carpathian Mountains provide critical wildlife habitat in central Europe, and previous genome-wide studies have found western Carpathian Mountain wolves (Canis lupus) to be a separate population. Whereas differentiation to the north may be explained by a lowland-mountain transition and habitat fragmentation, the eastern Carpathian Mountains ext...

Pies jest najstarszym zwierzęciem udomowionym przez człowieka, jednak przegląd literatury udowadnia, że czas i miejsce jego domestykacji nadal pozostają niejasne. Celem niniejszego artykułu jest przedstawienie, jak prawdopodobnie mógł przebiegać proces udomowienia psa oraz zaprezentowanie jego przyczyn i skutków. **********************************...

Proces udomowienia charakteryzuje się zmianami w cechach i właściwościach fizjologicznych, morfologicznych, psychicznych czy rozwojowych dzikiego prototypu udomowionego gatunku na skutek działalności człowieka (tzw. sztucznej selekcji). Niniejszy artykuł prezentuje (1) przyczyny prowadzące do udomowienia tak wielu gatunków, (2) lokalizację pierwotn...

Game species in the cultural landscapes of Europe are exposed to several sources of anthropogenic pressure. Whilst hunting is part of coordinated wildlife management, poaching is difficult to quantify, and hence, relatively little is known about its impact on survival patterns of game species. We estimated survival and cause-specific mortality rate...

We investigated contemporary and historical influences on the pattern of genetic diversity of European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus). The study was conducted in northeastern Poland, a zone where vast areas of primeval forests are conserved and where the European roe deer was never driven to extinction. A total of 319 unique samples collected in th...

Project
MammalNet is a partnership between different scientific and academic institutions in Europe. The project is using citizen science to monitor wild animals across Europe, which will give a better understanding of how to make informed decisions with mammal management and conservation in mind.
Project
The aims of our project are to estimate the genetic diversity and to check if there is any genetic structure of European roe deer occurring in northern and central-eastern part of the continent including Belarus, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden and Ukraine. We suppose that study performed in this part of Europe, in combination with earlier data from western and southern Europe, will allow us to recognize the whole pattern of genetic diversity and phylogeography of roe deer in Europe, localize the eastern LGM refugia for this species, and describe the postglacial expansion routes of the central lineage and possibly other not yet known mtDNA lineages of roe deer occurring in the study area. We suppose that there could be more than three mtDNA lineages of roe deer in Europe and it is possible that there had been one or more LGM refugia of the species located in eastern Europe.
