Conservation translocations ( e. g., restocking, reintroductions) represent efficient tools to prevent the extinction or favouring the return of previously extirpated populations into the wild. Evaluating demographic parameters of translocated populations is a key issue to assess and monitor their conservation status and to provide evidences useful...

Abstract. In Pollino National Park (PNP) is being held a study whose aim is to define, on a genetic base, the conservation status of the European Wildcat Felis silvestris silvestris Schreber 1777, and to check if there could be found, in short or long-term, risk evidences for its survival: proximity/superimposition of its home range with anthropic...

Feeding stations have long been used extensively worldwide to support the conservation of vultures and other scavenging birds. In Europe, the largest number of feeding stations was built in Spain (about 247), a country hosting about 90% of the European vultures, while, in recent decades, also in France and the Balkans, especially Bulgaria. In Italy...
Article
Assessing the spatiotemporal overlap amongst animal species living in sympatry helps to shed light on mechanisms of interspecific coexistence. We analysed the spatiotemporal coexistence in a predator–prey system through multiyear camera trapping, in a mountainous protected area of southern Italy (January 2012–January 2017). Temporal activity patter...

Nel 2018 il Parco Nazionale del Pollino ha progettato e realizzato il monitoraggio degli habitat e delle specie dei siti della Rete Natura 2000 del versante calabrese del Parco, con una particolare attenzione verso i rapaci rupicoli. Tale attività, realizzata dallo Studio Naturalistico Wildlife Research su commissione dell’Ente Parco, ha permesso d...

Survival is a key parameter for the management and conservation of wildlife and to evaluate the success of reintroductions. We estimated survival of Eurasian griffon vultures in the central-southern Apennine from telemetry data with a staggered entry design (Kaplan-Meier procedure as modified by Pollock). Nineteen vultures have been captured and fi...

The italian hare (Lepus corsicanus) is a species characterized by a constantly evolving framework of scientific knowledge which highlights its precarious state of preservation within its origin area. This contribution reports the distribution of the italian hare along the Lucanian sector of the Pollino National Park, in an area of 88.650 ha, using...

... Besides temporal activity patterns of wolves and fallow deer and their mutual interspecific overlap, we also compared the temporal activity of the fallow deer between sites with high versus (vs.). low wolf activity (Mori et al. 2020;Oberosler et al. 2017;Rossa et al. 2021). For each location, the frequency of wolf activity (i.e., its detection rate) was calculated as N detections/N days (N days = days of actual camera functioning). ...
... In Italy, following the same fate as other countries, 14,15 all griffon vulture populations (with the exception of the Sardinian one) became extinct between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. 16 It represented an important loss, as the species played a central role in maintaining the delicate balance of mountain ecosystems together with other iconic and ecologically important species (as the endemic marsican brown bear Ursus arctos marsicanus, the apennine wolf Canis lupus italicus and the apennine chamois Rupicapra pyrenaica ornata), in an environment still deeply characterized by traditional agriculture and rural activities (i.e., livestock transhumance). With the aim to restore the species and its important ecological role, several reintroduction projects have been carried out in Italy between 1992 and 2020. ...
