Cím:Conservation efforts and grazing exclusion study of the endangered Vipera ursinii graeca in Albania - preliminary results / Edvárd Mizsei, Márton Szabolcs, Bálint Üveges, Balázs Vági
Megjegyzések:Vipera ursinii is one of the most endangered snake species in Europe and provoked strong conservation approaches, except for the Greek meadow viper (Vipera ursinii graeca). This taxon lives in alpine grasslands (between 1600-2200 m a.s.l.) which are exploited as sheep and goat pastures, where variable levels of grazing may degrade the vipers' habitat. In 2014, at 1850m a.s.l. we started to study the effects of grazing by building three 20?20 m grazing- excluded monitoring sites using stainless metal piles and concertina razor wire while also designating three grazed monitoring sites close to the fenced ones, at an important meadow viper habitat in S-Albania. Our monitoring sites were thoroughly surveyed for vegetation, orthopteran fauna and viper occurrence: we detected 58 meadow viper specimens and one recapture in less than five monitoring occasions in the project area. In the future, these characteristics of grazing exclusion sites will be monitored at least yearly in cooperation with local and international research groups. Apart from direct conservational measures, our project also aims to educate local people to be aware of the unique natural values surrounding them and to motivate them to contribute, at least passively, to the conservation of their local environment.
