|研究設計描述||The goal of the project is to gather data on the modern distribution of European ground squirrels and to develop conservation activities for all found colonies.|
The mapping of European ground squirrels (EGS) was performed by pedestrian examination of potential habitats (pastrures) in the areas were EGS have been previously reported. From two to five pedestrians were involved in the burrow census. Distance from each observer was 5-20 m on the areas with no souslik presence informatiom. Whenever we record any burrow (either active or inactive), we applied more tight formation with distance 3-5 m between obervers. Each burrow was geotagged in the field using hand-held GPS Garmin eTrex30x with accuracy app. 3 m. Only visually active burrows were geotagged, e.g. those having signs of EGS regular visiting the burrow (feces of EGS, open entrance with no mud inside, no spider webs etc.). The only exception was on colony Bernovo2, where we had no access to GPS device, but geotagged some burrows using mobile phone. To separate EGS from close species (Spermophilus suslicus), either photographing of sousliks or live-trapping has been performed on most colonies.
|研究範圍||The burrow census was performed in May-July 2022 within eastern part of Chernivtsi Oblast and southern part of Vinnytsia Oblast'.|
