The occurrence and geographic distribution of the genus Longidorus was investigated during a nematological survey of Bohemia and South Moravia between 2003 and 2006. Soil samples were collected from 139 different fruit orchards and vineyards. Three Longidorus species (L. elongatus, L. euonymus and L. leptocephalus) were recorded. L. euonymus constitutes a new record for the Czech nematofauna.
Eurasian eagle owl (Bubo bubo) colonizing lowland floodplain forests in south Moravia (Czech Republic) and cases of its breeding in wooden nestboxes
This paper presents data on the occurrence and breeding of Eurasian eagle owl (Bubo bubo) in south Moravia, Czech Republic (Břeclav and Znojmo districts), in the floodplains of the Morava and Dyje Rivers, since 1994, and the first cases of confirmed breeding from 2009 to 2011. In two cases, eagle owls bred successfully in large, wooden artificial nestboxes originally installed for saker falcon (Falco cherrug).
Embedding of rural businesses in the South Moravian region
The aim of the paper is to present original findings obtained from the analysis of the SMEs (Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises) embedded in the South Moravia Region (Czech Republic). Data collected from the survey during 2010 was analyzed in the context of the DERREG project and the results were set with respect to globalization tendencies. The first part of the Business network questionnaire for the Czech case study took place during the spring. Forty three Small and Medium-Sized firms out of 550 approached replied to the email questionnaire. The responses provided us with a valuable insight in to how SMEs located in various territorial settings are able to develop and maintain a certain structure to their business network. In the second stage of activities, structured interviews were conducted during the summer of 2010 with follow-up questions from the questionnaire as well as the completion of an "Actor map". The analysis allowed the interviewee to classify the firms according to the dominant function of their networks. Results found that the majority of companies were not affected significantly by the economic crisis. The worst years for them were 2008 and 2009 where profits decreased in all areas of activity. Small businesses agreed that in a time of crisis it is much harder to succeed in the market against supermarkets and wholesalers, who can afford to lower the prices. A positive side of the crisis can be the fact that much more companies try to break into foreign markets where they get offered better prices for some commodities. The majority of respondents agreed that the economic crisis is retreating and they look optimistically into the future.

The paper is aimed at an attempt to define a smart village in the Czech conditions. It argues that the principles of smart villages are very similar to the concept of sustainability. The analysis deals with preventing rural exclusion, promoting digital technologies for the management of the rural infrastructure, teleworking in rural areas and using ICT for participation and governance. This approach is documented in the case of the South-Moravian Region. It was concluded that it was not so much coverage or accessibility of digital technology that was the main barrier of more intensive use of the smart village concept but rather the lower qualification level and conservatism of rural population is. It is suggested that more attention should be paid to increasing the digital literacy of rural people.
During the years 2002–2008 endoparasitoses of fallow deer Dama dama were monitored in White Carpathians (Czech Republic). Samples of excrements were tested by flotation and Baermann method and occasionally grallochs were dissected in order to detect gastrointestinal nematods (GIN) and lungworms (LW). In the same time we cooperated with gamekeepers, who carried out several differently successful measurements to lower the endoparasites’ prevalence. These measurements included pasture management, shooting management, additional-feeding management and drug treatment, all during the whole period of monitoring. Prevalence of endoparasites had descending trend, while intensity of infection had ascending trend. Total maximal prevalence (GIN+LW) in herd was 60 % (2004), in 2008, it fell down to 20 %. Annual dynamic of parasites was always highest in autumn months. Spectrum of detected parasites consisted only of species of the order Strongylida. Monitoring proved, that breeding management strategy can significantly influence parasitocenoses and help animals to regain health.
A nematode survey was carried out in South Moravia and Bohemia (Czech Republic) to assess the occurrence of Xiphinema in the rhizosphere of fruit orchards. Sixty six orchards in South Moravia and seven in Bohemia were studied during the years 2003 and 2004. Four Xiphinema species (X. diversicaudatum, X. pachtaicum, X. simile and X. vuittenezi) were recorded. X. simile constitutes a first record for the nematodes fauna of the Czech Republic.

Two species, Orthotrichia angustella (McLachlan, 1865) and Oxyethira tristella Klapálek, 1895, previously considered to be regionally extinct in the Czech Republic, are reported from the Dyje River (South Moravia) as new records for Moravia. Hydroptila martini Marshall, 1977 and Oxyethira falcata Morton, 1893 endangered species are for the first time recorded from Moravia (incl. Silesia). New faunistic data on rare species Hydroptila occulta (Eaton, 1873) and Hydroptila tineoides Dalman, 1819 are also provided.
