Bolu-Yedigöller Yaban Hayatı Geliştirme Sahası’nda saf meşe meşceresinde fotokapanla tespit edilen memeli türler

Son yıllarda meşe ormanlarının öneminin artması bu habitatların daha fazla araştırılma gereksinimini ortaya çıkarmıştır. Bu çalışma Bolu-Yedigöller Yaban Hayatı Geliştirme Sahası’ndaki bir saf meşe meşceresindeki memeli türlerin belirlenmesi amacıyla yapılmıştır. Yaklaşık bir yıl boyunca (Eylül 2013-Temmuz 2014) sabit noktalardan fotokapanlarla gözlemler yapılmıştır. Tespit edilen 10 memeli türe ait 1415 görüntüde 2231 yaban hayvanı bireyi sayılmıştır. Yaban domuzu, karaca ve kızıl tilki alandaki en baskın türlerdir. Meşcerede yaban hayvanları mevsimsel farklılık göstermemektedir. Daha çok beslenme davranışı görülmüştür. Türler genel olarak gececildir. Yaban hayatı bakımından zengin olan meşe meşcerelerinde sürdürülebilir yönetimin devam ettirilmesi önerilmektedir.

In recent years, increasing importance of the oak forests has revealed the requirement for further investigation of these habitats. The current study was conducted to determine the species of mammals in a pure oak stand in Bolu-Yedigöller Wildlife Reserve. The observations were made by wildlife camera traps from fixed-points for about a year, from September 2013 to July 2014. A total of 10 species of mammals was identified, and 2231 individuals were counted from 1415 wild animal images. Wild boar, roe deer and red fox are the most dominant species in the area. Wild animals do not show seasonal variations in the stands. Feeding behavior was observed more than the other activities. The species is nocturnal in general. We suggest continuing the sustainable management in oak stands that are rich in terms of wildlife
