Article
Full-text available
Life-history theory predicts that animals should develop adaptive trade-offs between survival and reproduction to maximize their fitness. This results in a continuum of life-history strategies among species, ranging from slow to fast paces-of-life. The optimal pace-of-life has been shown to vary within environmental gradients, with a commonly obser...
Article
Full-text available
Grasslands of middle mountain regions are among the most diverse habitats of the Carpathian Basin, but they are threatened by spontaneous succession leading to woody encroachment. It is a high priority of nature conservation to preserve these diverse habitats by suppressing the woody encroachment and to create new open habitat patches by scrub remo...
Article
Capsule: The distribution range of the European Roller Coracias garrulus has undergone large changes over geological times, but although the species is warm-adapted, the human induced climate change is predicted to affect negatively the range of the currently large populations. Aim: Information on species-specific vulnerability to climate change is...
Article
The decline of farmland and grassland biodiversity is one the major conservation concerns nowadays. The European roller is a secondary cavity nester species typically inhabiting grasslands and farmlands. It has suffered large declines both in size and range of the population since the 1960s, but this negative trend has been reversed in several coun...
Article
Grazing and mowing are widely applied management practices in semi-natural grasslands, which are one of the most important habitats for biodiversity conservation in Europe. Due to the decline in extensively grazing livestock numbers, an increasing area of formerly grazed grasslands has being used as mown grasslands. However, we have scarce informat...

A szalakóta (Coracias garrulus) a gyepekhez és mezőgazdasági területekhez kötődő, rovarevő madárfaj, amely nagytestű harkályok, zöld küllő (Picus viridis) és fekete harkály (Dryocopus martius) odúiban költ, így a mezőgazdaság és az erdőgazdálkodás intenzifikálódása, valamint a táj átalakulása potenciális veszélyforrást jelent számára. " A szalakóta...

Provisioning of artificial nest-boxes proved to be an effective method to make suitable breeding sites for secondary cavity nester birds due to the lack of natural hollows. The European roller (Coracias garrulus) is a threatened bird species in Europe, which suffered a serious decline throughout its breeding range. Changing agricultural practices s...
Article
Full-text available
The European Roller (Coracias garrulus) is a strictly protected species in Hungary; however, its population has shown a slight increase during the past decades. Our goal was to overview the conservation status of the species in Hungary since the end of the 19 th century. Using archive data, we demonstrate the changes in distribution and population...
Article
Full-text available
Despite recent advances in avian tracking technology, archival devices still present several limitations. Traditional ring recoveries provide a complementary method for studying migratory movements, particularly for cohorts of birds with a low return rate to the breeding site. Here we provide the first international analysis of ring recovery data i...
Article
European rollers (Coracias garrulus) were almost extinct from large parts of Hungary in the 1970–1980s. However up till now their population size increased considerably, mainly due to a nature conservation campaign, supplying artificial nest-boxes for breeding. We studied which factors affected rollers’ occurrences at the landscape scale in souther...

Article
Full-text available
Capsule Rollers showed slightly higher breeding performance in farmland mosaics than in natural grasslands in southern Hungary, where both habitats were supplied with nest-boxes. Aim To establish which factors affect Rollers’ breeding success in agricultural and their more traditional grassland habitats. Methods Rollers’ reproductive success in f...
Article
Full-text available
Despite the continuously growing number of known avian picornaviruses (family Picornaviridae) the knowledge about their genetic diversity in wild birds, especially of the long-distance migrant species is very limited. In this study we report of the presence of a novel picornavirus identified from one (5.5%) of 18 analyzed faecal samples of the Afro...
Article
Full-text available
To find better mating opportunities may be one of the reasons why birds disperse from one population to another, although evidence is scarce to prove this proposition. Penduline Tit is a highly suitable model species to clarify this question, since both males and females may have several mates during a single breeding season. We followed the disper...
