Research

The research activities of the deparment is focused on the health problems in wildlife populations, with a particular focus on animals that are not used as the source of raw materials for the production of food of animal origin. Special emphasis is placed on research of the health status of wild birds and wild mammals, with particular emphasis on monitoring the incidence of zoonotic parasitic, infectious and non-infectious diseases such animals. We use methods of molecular biology in the diagnosis of pathogens in wildlife.

  • Team of prof. Literák - they focus on the prevalence of bacteria resistant to antibiotics in populations of wild animals (comparatively in populations of domestic animals and humans). This problematic is studied on model of bacteria Escherichia coli and Enterococcus spp.
  • Team of assoc. prof. Široký - they focus on the circulation of pathogens transmitted by ticks in natural foci (bacteria Borrelia spp., Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Rickettsia spp. and protozoa of the genus Babesia).
  • Team of assoc. prof. Bártová - they focus on presence of Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum in domestic, wild and zoo animals.
  • Team of assoc. prof. Sychra - they are experts on the ectoparasites of birds.

The results of the current research conducted in laboratories are documented by recent publications in prestigious scientific journals.
