Population viability analysis of endangered species in Czech Republic
Šťastná, Andrea ; Helman, Karel (advisor) ; Bašta, Milan (referee)
Diploma thesis analyzes the viability of the selected species populations in the Czech Republic. The thesis is divided into two main parts. The first part contains a stochastic model simulating possible scenarios of the Eurasian lynx population size in the Czech Republic. For this model program Vortex was used. The second part is focused on Time series analysis of the Grey Partridge and the Common Kingfisher population, where data was obtained from the Czech Society for Ornithology. This analysis aims on identification of factors that may affect the viability of the two bird species.
Comparison of Attitudes of Primary and Secondary Schools Students to Large Carnivores, Especially the Common Wolf (Canis lupus) and Domestic Dog (Canis lupus familiaris)
Mejzr, Martin ; Andreska, Jan (referee) ; Hanel, Lubomír (referee)
Today, the issues related to the presence of bears and wolves in the Czech Republic are more frequently discussed due to their occasional occurrence. The significant part of the public still considers these predators dangerous and they even think that a man is supposed to be their potential prey. A lot of surveys confirming this have been already taken, but none of them was focused on the views of primary and secondary schools students. As they are a part of the school education system, their views on the large carnivores should be mainly shaped by it. A questionnaire-based survey was used to find the attitudes of students. The first part of the questionnaire focused on the students' opinions about the dangerousness of predators, its reasons and common wolf presence in the Czech Republic. The second part of the questionnaire is focused on the domestic dog, which has wolf origins. It deals mainly with the attitudes of students to selected dog breeds, dog domestication awareness and views on the so- called "fighting breeds". This work has been aimed at identification of attitudes of the primary and secondary school students from different regions of the Czech Republic to the selected predators. The survey was also taken at primary schools in the High Tatras Mountains, an area where all the large...

Physical-geographical analysis of the distribution of lynx in the Bohemian Forest
Sladová, Michaela ; Romportl, Dušan (advisor) ; Chuman, Tomáš (referee)
Natural landscape has been changed and forest habitats have been fragmented as a result of human activity. Consequently a decay of forest species has been registered and Eurasian lynx belongs to these threatened species. This wild beast had been exterminated in past in Czech Republic. The Czech and German parts of Šumava Mountains belong to the most forested areas in Europe and therefore they represent convenient areas for a steady occurrence of the mammals which need large areas for their existence. That is why the population of this wild beast was re-established through the use of 24 re-introducted specimen in Šumava Mountains during the 1980s. At present Šumava Mountains represent one of the main central areas of steady occurrence of eurasian lynx in Czech Republic. On the basis of radiotelemetric data coming from 10 individuals of Eurasian lynx (6 males and 4 females) the spatial requirements of this wild beast have been analysed by means of the three following methods: Minimum Convex Polygon, Kernel Home Range and Local Convex Hull. Also the impacts of human activities and relief character have been discussed together with the preference of the provincial cover. It has been found out that the spread of this wild beast is limited by the estate, the traffic infrastructure and fragmentation of...
Using the activation enrichment Lynx (Lynx lynx) in zoo Ohrada, Hluboká nad Vltavou.
FRÖHLICH, Marek
Environmental enrichment helps to improve the environmental complexity of animals kept in captivity, it supports animals comfort, stimulates active behaviour and reduces stereotypical behaviour to which predators incline. The work was carried out at The Ohrada zoo in the city of Hluboká nad Vltavou. A couple of Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) was the research subject. The aim of the work was to evaluate and compare the control observation with the lynx?s behaviour when they were stimulated by enrichment. Enrichment should have stimulted animals to behave actively.
Current relationship of public to repatriated population of European lynx (Lynx lynx) in the Bohemian Forest.
ROCHOVÁ, Markéta
In the territory of the Czech Republic, Eurasian lynx was exterminated in the beginning of the 19th century. Thanks to the reintroduction programs it has been living here again since 1980s. The maximum of its population was at its peak in 1996; however, since then it has been falling, especially due to illegal hunting. There are about 70 lynxes in Šumava, which is our greatest group. Questionnaires were made for schools in order to evaluate different attitudes to protection of nature in different types of schools, questionnaires for public and gamekeepers were aimed at attitudes to lynxes. The aim of the research was to give recommendation to improve objective and correct foreknowledge of the inhabitants about lynxes in the surroundings aimed at youths and preschool-age children. 432 children and students, 26 gamekeepers and 130 inhabitants of Sušice and its surrounding were approached. Very good knowledge about lynxes was found out in the group of pupils and students; on the other side, gamekeepers have mostly negative relationship with these animals. The relationship between public and lynxes is mostly positive.
Project support of public opinion about European lynx (Lynx lynx) in children and youth in the region Prachaticko.
ŠVERÁKOVÁ, Barbora
Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx) is included in the IUCN. It was extirpated in the Czech Republic at the beginning of the 19th century and is found thanks to the reintroduction since 1980 in the Czech Republic again. It is only wild feline in the Czech Republic. Lynx population has lost its growing trend and is decreasing mainly due to poaching. The project ?Support of public opinion about European lynx (Lynx lynx) in children and youth in the region Prachaticko? was created as a precaution against poaching. The project involved over 275 children and students. They gained new information through the teaching program in school subjects Biology, Art and Gymnastics and they made your own opinion about Lynx. Lynx is only carnivorous animal, which was and still is part of the Bohemian Forest.
