Data from: Why do zoos attract crows? A comparative study from Europe and Asia

László Kövér, Szabolcs Lengyel, Makiko Takenaka, Alice Kirchmeir, Florian Uhl, Rachel Miller & Christine Schwab
Crows have successfully colonized many cities and urban zoos have been important in this process. To evaluate why zoos attract crows, we quantified crow numbers and behaviour in three zoos in Europe (Debrecen, Edinburgh, Vienna) and one in Asia (Sapporo). Data were collected in 445 surveys over 297 days in summer 2014 and winter 2014-15. We found that crow numbers were highest in Vienna, intermediate in Debrecen and Edinburgh and lowest in Sapporo, increased significantly...

WHO LIKES IN THE END? METHODS FOR IMPROVING THE SAFE USE OF THE INTERNET

Viktoria Bene
Nauczyciele, edukatorzy muszą zmierzyć się z nowym wyzwaniem, które spowodowała rewolucja cyfrowa. Przestrzeń cyfrowa, zwłaszcza media społecznościowe, odgrywają ważną rolę w życiu młodych ludzi. Dzięki Internetowi mogą z łatwością uzyskiwać informacje, mają szansę wykorzystać swoją kreatywność i tworzyć blogi lub videoblogi. Z drugiej strony Internet ma „ciemną stronę”, na którą składa się cyberprzemoc, fałszywe wiadomości i problemy z samooceną. Niektórym nauczycielom trudno jest dotrzymać kroku narastającym zmianom i rozmawiać o nich z młodymi ludźmi. Niemniej...

Climate and mating systems as drivers of global diversity of parental care in frogs

Balázs Vági, Zsolt Végvári, András Liker, Robert P. Freckleton & Tamás Székely
Aim Amphibians exhibit unusually diverse reproductive modes, including a wide array of parental care strategies. The evolutionary drivers of this diversity, however, remain unclear. Here we investigate three major factors which may predict interspecific variation in parental care strategies: climate, intrasexual selection and social environment. We hypothesise that some care forms evolved to cope with harsh conditions such as dry or unpredictable habitats. We contrast this prediction with the hypothesis that parental roles have coevolved...

Data from: The protected flora of long-established cemeteries in Hungary: using historical maps in biodiversity conservation

Viktor Löki, András Schmotzer, Attila Takács, Kristóf Süveges, Ádám Lovas-Kiss, Balázs Lukács, Jácint Tökölyi & Attila Molnár V.
The role of anthropogenically influenced habitats in conserving elements of the original wildlife has increased worldwide simultaneously with the disappearance of natural sites. Burial places are able to conserve original elements of the wildlife and this fact has been known for at least a century. To this day little is known about long-time changes, and the effect of long-time management methods in cemeteries on the flora they harbour. The utility of historical maps in research...

Surrounding landscape effect on roadside verges

Réka Fekete
Semi-natural habitats are declining throughout the world, thus the role of small anthropogenic habitats in the preservation of plants is becoming increasingly appreciated. Here we surveyed the orchid flora of roadside verges in five Central European countries (Austria, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia) and tested how the surrounding landscape matrix affects the overall number of species and individuals, and also different functional groups of orchids. We found more than 2000 individuals of 27 orchid species...
