Habitat use and preliminary demographic evaluation of the critically endangered Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monachus) in the Cilician Basin (Eastern Mediterranean)
Gücü, Ali Cemal; Orek, H (2004-04-01)
Over the last few decades a dramatic decline in the number of Mediterranean monk seals (Monachus monachus) limited scientific studies on the biology.. behaviour, and ecology of the species. This lack of information impaired the effectiveness of conservation strategies. Thus, any further information gathered on the monk seal has utmost value in the work to halt and reverse the plight of the species. A hitherto unknown Cilician Basin colony of the Mediterranean monk seal has been investigated during a 6-year ...

Breeding biology, population size and spatial distribution of a common nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos Brehm, 1831) Population at Yalıncak (Ankara)
Özbahar, İlker; Bilgin, Cemal Can; Department of Biology (2005)
Many bird populations are known to show strong territoriality as well as high site fidelity during breeding. The Common Nightingale (Luscinia megarhynchos) is one of many such migratory species that annually occupies the same favourable habitat. Especially dominant males prefer to breed in the same area every year, and high fidelity probably assures high breeding success. This study aims to investigate breeding biology, population size and spatial distribution of nightingales at a small area in Yalıncak wit...
Nest site selection patterns of a local Egyptian Vulture Neophron percnopterus population in Turkey
Sen, Bilgecan; Tavares, Jose P.; Bilgin, Cemal Can (2017-12-01)
We report the size and density of an Egyptian Vulture population in Turkey and provide insight into its nest site selection patterns. The study was carried out at Beypazar (Turkey), holding one of the densest Egyptian Vulture populations (six pairs per 100 km(2)) in the Western Palearctic. Random Forests analysis revealed that human impact was a potential factor governing the distribution of nest sites, as the pairs clearly preferred to breed away from nearby villages, towns or roads. Utilisation of elevati...
