Insectivorous Feeding And Nutritional Preferences Of Some Large Wild Mammalian Species
Böcekçil Beslenme ve Bazı Büyük Memeli Yaban Hayvanı Türlerinin Besin Tercihleri

Yasin ÜNAL [1] , Dilek ARSLAN [2]


The feeding habits of big mammalian species generally divided into three categories: carnivore, herbivore, and omnivore. Omnivorous and carnivorous species include insects in their food diets as well. Insects, due to the high protein they have, are an alternative food and energy source for carnivorous and omnivorous mammal species in extreme weather conditions and food shortage and sometimes have the feature of being the only hope and a last resort to survive for these species. In this study, the importance of insectivorous food preferences in the diet of 10 different species of 5 large mammal families in Turkey is evaluated by looking at the fecal and stomach content analyzes made in various regions of the world.
Anadolu coğrafyasında yayılış gösteren memeli türlerin beslenme alışkanlıkları genel olarak etçil (carnivor), otçul (herbivor) ve hepçil/hem etçil hem otçul (omnivor) olmak üzere 3’e ayrılmaktadır. Böcekler, sahip oldukları yüksek protein dolayısıyla ekstrem hava şartları ve besin kıtlığında etçil ve hepçil memeli türü için alternatif bir besin ve enerji kaynağı olmakla birlikte, bazı zamanlarda hayatta kalabilmek için tek umut ve sonçare özelliğine sahiptir. Bu çalışmada 5 büyük memeli familyasına mensup 10 farklı türün besin tercihleri dışkı ve mide içeriği analizleri değerlendirilip besin grupları sınıflandırıldı. Böceklerin, ülkemizde yayılış gösteren önemli bazı büyük memeli türlerinin diyetindeki önemi değerlendirilmektedir.
