The recent mammal fauna of Austria
Kurt Bauer,Friederike Spitzenberger
Hystrix : the Italian Journal of Mammalogy , 1996, DOI: 10.4404/hystrix-8.1-2-4088
Abstract: The recent mammal fauna of Austria comprises 98 wild species. Further, there are roaming domestic cats but no feral populations of any domestic mammal.
Lithuanian mammal fauna review
Linas Balciauskas
Hystrix : the Italian Journal of Mammalogy , 1996, DOI: 10.4404/hystrix-8.1-2-4087
Abstract: Data on Lithuania mammal fauna are presented. From 78 mammal species recorded in Lithuania, 7 were seen only in the 17-18th centuries, two species are extinct. Recent Lithuanian mammal fauna contains 68 species. Five of them are observed occasionally. 63 mammal species are permant inhabitants, 18 included in the Red Data Book, mostly bats and dormice. 8 mammal species were introduced or reintroduced. Population tendencies of game animals are also considered.
The mammal fauna of Sweden
Lennart Hansson,Karl Fredga
Hystrix : the Italian Journal of Mammalogy , 1996, DOI: 10.4404/hystrix-8.1-2-4090
Abstract: The Swedish mammal fauna consists of 68 species but contains no real endemics. Two species have gone extinct during the last 100 years or so. Nine species have been introduced, reintroduced or have invaded Sweden during historic time. There are three endangered, nine vulnerable, five rare and five indeterminate species in the Swedish mammal fauna.

Biotemas , 2011,
Abstract: Serra do Tabuleiro State Park, located in the central-eastern region of the state of Santa Catarina, in southern Brazil, has 85,000ha and a wide diversity of habitats (mangrove, restinga, dense and mixed rain forest, cloud forest and fields). From 1991 to 2010, 22 studies on its mammalian fauna were conducted, which used the following methods: live trapping (Young and double-door), pitfall traps, nesting boxes, mist nets, camera traps, direct observation and indirect evidence. Seventy-five autochthonous species (about 54% of the terrestrial mammal species known from Santa Catarina), belonging to nine orders and 25 families, were recorded. Fifteen of these species are considered threatened at the state, national or global level. General aspects about the conservation of the mammals in the park, and the possibility of other species occurring in this area, are discussed.
Duality of terrestrial subterranean fauna
Novak Tone,Perk Matjaz,Lipov?ek Sa?ka,Jan?ekovic Franc
International Journal of Speleology , 2012,
Abstract: Terrestrial animals in subterranean habitats are often classified according to their degree of morphological or ecological specialization to the subterranean environment. The commonly held view is that, as distance into a cave increases, the frequency of morphologically specialized, i.e., troglomorphic, species or ecological specialization will increase. We tested this hypothesis for the fauna in 54 caves in Slovenia–the classical land for subterranean biology. We found that there exist two ecologically well separated terrestrial subsurface faunas: one shallow and one deep. 1) The shallow subterranean fauna, adapted to the terrestrial shallow subterranean habitats (SSHs) in the upper 10 m of subsurface strata, is most diverse. It consists of randomly distributed non-troglobionts and a major group of troglobionts adapted to the soil root zone. 2) The deep subterranean fauna is represented by a minor group of troglobionts, adapted to caves. Troglobionts are strictly divided between the two faunas. There is strong evidence that in karstic ecosystems with deep-rooted vegetation this might be a global pattern, or that in these locations only the shallow subterranean fauna exist.
The mammal fauna of Italy: a review
Giovanni Amori,Francesco Maria Angelici,Claudio Prigioni,Augusto Vigna Taglianti
Hystrix : the Italian Journal of Mammalogy , 1996, DOI: 10.4404/hystrix-8.1-2-4086
Abstract: A synthesis on the status of the Italian mammals species is reported. For each order, faunistic and biogeographic data and conservation concern are considered. In addition, a list of endemic, rare and/or endangered mammal species, classified according to the new IUCN criteria is provided as well as the species and subspecies recently introduced in Italian territory.
Terrestrial mammal feces: a morphometric summary and description
Chame, Marcia;
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 2003, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02762003000900014
Abstract: the study of feces of terrestrial mammals brings out biological and ecological data such as the species presence, diet, behaviour, territory, parasitic fauna, and home-range use, which can be applied for conservation projects and support paleoecological research that use coprolites as the main source of study. although the new biotechnological techniques allow more accurate data, the diagnosis based on morphometric analyses permits the primary identification of the taxonomic group origin to support the best choice of subsequent analyses. we present the compilation list of fecal shape and measurements available in the literature published in north america, eastern and southern africa, europe, and new data from brazil. shape and diameters are the best characteristics for taxonomic identification. feces were assembled in 9 groups that reflect the order, sometimes the family, and even their common origin.

The Norwegian mammal fauna: status and atlas mapping
Per Ole Syvertsen,Paul Shimmings,Kjell Isaksen
Hystrix : the Italian Journal of Mammalogy , 1996, DOI: 10.4404/hystrix-8.1-2-4097
Abstract: At least 85 mammal species (including 28 marine species) occur in Norway and Norwegian waters, of which 18 species currently are listed on the Norwegian Red List (Storkersen, 1992). Canis lupus is considered "Endangered", Ursus major, Gulo gulo and Lutra lutra are listed as "Vulnerable", Mustela putorius and Sicista betulina as "Rare", Alopex lagopus as "Indeterminate", and a number of species, mostly bats, are "Insufficiently known". A revised list is under preparation. At least 8 species have reached the country solely through intentional or accidental releases in Norway or neighbouring countries. Many species' distribution are not well known. The Norwegian Zoological Society started a mammal atlas project in 1993, based on squares of 10x10 km. Data collected for this project have also been presented to the EMMA project.
A short description of the Latvian mammal fauna
Valdis Pilats
Hystrix : the Italian Journal of Mammalogy , 1996, DOI: 10.4404/hystrix-8.1-2-4094
Abstract: Since the 17th century 74 mammal species have been recorded in Latvia. Two species have become extinct, 10 species have been observed occasionally or introduced unsuccessfully but 62 are considered as permanently occurring in Latvia. Among the latter 8 species have been introduced or have invaded Latvia. 23 species are included in the Red list.
