Poster about the project at IENE conference, 2014.
Genetic Database of Selected Species of Mammals of the Czech Republic
The aim of project is evaluation of road impact on genetic variability of selected mammals species population (deer, roe deer, wild boar, fox, badger, hare and moose).
During the projects were chosen places, where the population isolation is expected due to high traffic volumes and the absence of wildlife crossing. At these locations we are collecting tissues of hunted animals from local gamekeepers. After collection of a sufficient number of samples the microsatellite DNA analysis will be performed for evaluation of genetic variability and degree of population fragmentation.
Another goal of the project is to create a genetic database of mammals for keeping records of samples that were collected during this project for further evaluation.
At the end of the project the database will be accessible through internet to professional public as a resource for research in the field of road ecology and landscape fragmentation, nature conservation, land use planning and other.
The database will be available at www.genedbase.cz and www.genedbase.eu, currently the information about the project is available there.
