Article
Full-text available
Breeding management of small populations may have a critical influence on the development of population characteristics in terms of levels of genetic diversity and inbreeding. Two populations of antelope sister species – Critically Endangered Western Derby eland (Tauroragus derbianus derbianus) and non-native Least Concern Cape eland (Taurotragus o...
Article
Nursing behaviour is one component of mammalian life history strategy that demonstrates context-dependent flexibility within species. Wild giraffes live in groups and feed themselves over large area. In the zoo, giraffes are kept in enclosures with abundant food resources. We aimed to analyse whether the nursing behaviour of giraffes differs betwee...
Article
Full-text available
The vertebrate fauna of the Philippines, known for its diversity and high proportion of endemic species, comprises mainly small-to medium-sized forms with a few large exceptions. As with other tropical ecosystems, the major threats to wildlife are habitat loss, hunting and invasive species, of which the feral cat (Felis catus) is considered the mos...
Data
Dataset from Bohol Dataset contains following files: overlap.csv-Activity records of selected species of terrestrial vertebrates camera-trapped during survey on Bohol Island, Philippines. Columns represent sites of survey (Zone), species captured (Sps) and time of record in 0-1 format (Time). RAI.xls-number of independent events of all camera-trapp...
Article
Full-text available
Transfers to new breeding herds and supplementary feeding are crucial management steps for small populations of ungulates. However, the successful realisation of those steps is strongly dependent on social interactions among individuals. Agonistic encounters connected with feeding determine the quality and quantity of the food accessed, and therefo...

Full-text available
A novel quantification of the animals’ activity from non-invasive camera-trapping data allows for a detailed insight into the activity level of ungulates. We applied an innovative methodological approach, the R package activity, on data from camera-trapping of semi-captive Western Derby eland populations in two different natural habitats. Our surve...
Article
Full-text available
Camera trapping with capture-recapture analyses has provided estimates of the abundances of elusive species over the last two decades. Closed capture-recapture models (CR) based on the recognition of individuals and incorporating natural heterogeneity in capture probabilities are considered robust tools; however, closure assumption is often questio...

Western Derby eland (Taurotragus d. derbianus) is a critically endangered subspecies of one of the world’s largest antelope. Once widely distributed taxon occurs at the last West African refuge, Niokolo Koba National Park, Senegal. Estimated population size of about 171 individuals was derived from only photograph showing herd of 69 animals taken d...
Article
Full-text available
Giraffe social behaviour and relationships are currently in the period of scientific renaissance, changing the former ideas of nonexisting social bonds into understanding of complex social structures of giraffe herds. Different giraffe subspecies have been studied in the wild and only one was subject of detailed study in captivity. Our study focuse...
Article
Full-text available
The western giant eland (Tragelaphus derbianus derbianus) needs appropriate management for its survival. We measured the effects of supplemental food on activity and browsing patterns during seasons of scarce natural food resources in 2008 and 2009 for a herd of six animals in the Fathala Reserve (Senegal). In response to the provision of high-qual...

Book
Full-text available
Presented publication focuses on important issues connected with the conservation of the world’s largest antelope, critically endangered Western Derby eland. Based on the 13-year history of Senegalese-Czech cooperation, we aimed to produce a locally and internationally respected conservation tool for this magnificent creature. Publication is compo...
Article
Full-text available
Mother–offspring interactions soon after parturition play a key role in the survival of mammals. We investigated the suckling behavior of semi-captive Western Derby eland (Taurotragus derbianus derbianus) in a 60-ha enclosure covered by dense savanna vegetation in Senegal and farmed Common eland (T. oryx) on an open 2-ha pasture in the Czech Republ...

Project
The two-year OWADIS project was launched on October 1, 2020 under the auspices of the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague. The main goal of the project is to deepen cooperation between the Czech Republic and the Free State of Saxony in the joint protection of biodiversity. The project partners (Senckeberg Museum of Natural History in Görlitz and Charles University) plan to strengthen the existing cooperation platform with IT tools increasing the efficiency and quality of cooperation. The tools will help in quality collection and analysis as well as in the presentation of data on the occurrence of wolves.
Project
We investigate mineal licks (salines, bais, mineral deposits) and their importance for rainforest fauna in Congo Basin (Messok-Dja), Sundaland and Madagascar. We study these specific sites from the ecology and ethology point of view but also in terms of wildlife conservation's prioritization.
Project
We focus on the assessment of wildlife communities and main drivers of the distribution of terrestrial fauna via large-scale camera trapping. We employ an advanced set of statistical methods, incorporating remote sensing, cadastre and land use data which enables us to take the history and presence of the landscape into an account both for conservationists and managers, state authorities and private sector. We put an emphasis on surveying the savannah and tropical forest biomes without legal protection (bio-corridors, peripheries of reserves, etc.).
