Dvořáková, Dana ; Turek, Filip (referee) ; Sterec, Pavel (advisor)
Cryptids, video which is studying animals, its shapes, moves and the environment , where they find themselves. The video is looking equal to all entity without any difference, document varied life as same as passing death or rot as well. It also speaks about collaboration and the microworld, which creates perfect unit. Silent mutual conversations.
Birdwatching in the Non-breeding Season: a Long-term Project for Years 7-9 in Secondary School
Tissari, Miia Aine ; Říhová, Dagmar (advisor) ; Andreska, Jan (referee)
This master's thesis deals with creating and implementing a long-term school project focused on birdwatching and bird species identification in the non-breeding season. Over a seven-year period, ten 7th -9th grade classes, in total 181 students from two elementary schools, participated in the project. At the beginning and end of the project, students were quizzed on identifying 33 bird species that commonly visit or are seen in the area around the bird feeder. Birdwatching occurred from mid-October to mid-March at bird feeders the students had placed near their homes. The students regularly recorded their observations in their ornithological journals. The project fell under the science curriculum but was also integrated as a cross-curricular project into other subjects, especially art education. The project significantly improved the students' knowledge and skills, increased their interest in birds, and raised their awareness of the need for bird conservation. Students became significantly more proficient in using the resources and equipment needed to observe and identify birds. The students' interest in nature, especially in their immediate surroundings, increased significantly. The results show that long-term natural science-based projects can positively impact education, help build environmental...

Effects of peripheral inflammation on gene expression modulation in passerines and parrots

(English) Birds have well-defined roles in maintaining the ecological balance as predators, seed dispersers, nutrient cyclers, and pollinators making them an integral part of many ecosystems. Birds are often the flag-ship species and are important for wildlife preservation. Some of the avian populations are very well connected across the globe through their annual migration, increasing risks of epidemics of infections. Birds also face different levels of existence encounters in challenging living conditions like deserts and cold mountains. To cope with these diverse environments not only need physiological adaptations, but also a very well-equipped immune system, optimised to challenges common to the environment they inhabit. How well a host immune system responds to pathogens determines the overall fitness of the organism and its survival. Insight into the avian immune system functions is of great significance as birds are reservoirs of innumerable pathogens. They have been the primary source of several major epidemics' onset leading to worldwide human and animal fatalities (e.g., COVID-19, Avian influenza, or West Nile virus outbreaks). Similar to all living beings, avian hosts and pathogens are always in a continuous adaptational arms race. This coevolution of hosts and their pathogens forms the...
Selected impacts of climate change on birds in European mountains: shifts in altitudinal distribution, population changes and changes in phenology
Mikulcová, Eliška ; Reif, Jiří (advisor) ; Hološková, Adriana (referee)
Many studies focused on the impact of the climate change on organisms including mountain birds. Mountain birds are particularly threatened by the impact of climatic change because they occur in an extreme environment. Climate change impacts mountain birds through increasing temperature, which affects their altitudinal shifts and abundances. These two variables depend also on species-specific traits, distribution area and habitat change. This thesis aims to sort knowledge about impacts of climate change on mountain birds and to explain the variability of altitudinal shifts of these species. Species occupying lower altitudes, open habitat species and short-lived species showed the biggest upward shifts. Downward shifts occurred when the impact of habitat change outweighed the impact of climate change. No significant shifts were recorded in species that respond to climate change by changes in phenology which likely compensate the adverse climate change impacts without the need of translocation. Population trends were usually negative with the steepest declines in high- alpine species, ecological specialists, long-distance migrants and short-lived species. In order to reduce decline in numbers, it is important to set up effective local vegetation management and globally stick to climate targets. Key...
