Abstract

The molluscan diversity in the Litovelské Pomoraví Protected Landscape Area (PLA) (Moravia, Czech Republic) was studied. The PLA stretches on the territory of a river alluvial plain and is formed by the meandering river, complex of alluvial forests, meadows, and wetlands. It is part of the European network of nature protection areas Natura 2000. Altogether 10 450 specimens representing 107 mollusc species were found by means of hand collecting and sieving a litter layer during the sampling period April 2012–September 2015 at nine selected sampling sites. Computation of the Jaccard and Sörensen indices showed the degree of similarity between the individual locations based on the number of shared species. The principal component analysis based on known ecological characteristics clearly distinguished some locations and indicated the relationships between a particular molluscan group and a locality. The data availability and possibility to assess the succession over time is essential for later evaluation and mapping the natural processes or human impact at naturally important localities.

Abstract

Molluscan diversity in selected Protected Landscape Areas (PLA) of Bohemia (Czech Republic) was monitored. For the study, the small-scale PLAs of the Slavkovský Les, the Blanský Les, and the Labské Pískovce were selected. Over 12 500 specimens in total representing 62 mollusc species were found within 2012-2013 by means of hand collecting and sieving the litter layer. To evaluate similarity among the localities, the Jaccard and Sörensen’s indices were calculated. The significance of such data is mainly in their presentation in the available resources such as peer-reviewed scientific journals

Abstract

During December 2007 and November–April 2008/2009, 128 gastrointestinal tracts and 1680 faecal samples of hares from different parts of the Czech Republic were examined. Evaluation of the faeces samples indicated that the samples could have been infected with any one of the following parasites: Eimeria spp., Trichostrongylus retortaeformis, Trichuris leporis, Graphidium strigosum, Strongyloides sp., Protostrongylus spp. and Anoplocephalidae tape-worms. Trichostrongylus retortaeformis was the most common nematode (75.8 %). 39.8 % of the animals were infected with Trichuris leporis. Only four hares were in-fected with Graphidium strigosum. Eimeria spp. was the most commonly occurring parasite (90.5 %). The follow-ing species were found: Eimeria coquelinae, E. cabareti, E. leporis, E. babatica, E. europea, E. pierrecouderti, E. macrosculpta, E. orbiculata and E. stefanski. Eimeria coquelinae was the most prevalent species (68.4 %). Eimeria cabareti and E. leporis were the next most frequently found species (64.5 % and 57.8 %, respectively).
