      Říha, Milan; Gjelland, Karl Øystein; Děd, Vilém; Eloranta, Antti; Rabaneda-Bueno, Ruben; Baktoft, Henrik; Vejřík, Lukáš; Vejříková, Ivana; Drastik, Vladislav; Šmejkal, Marek; Holubová, Michaela; Jůza, Tomáš; Rosten, Carolyn; Sajdlová, Zuzana; Økland, Finn; Peterka, Jiří (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Structural complexity is known to influence prey behaviour, mortality and population structure, but the effects on predators have received less attention. We tested whether contrasting structural complexity in two newly ...
    • European catfsh (Silurus glanis) as a freshwater apex predator drives ecosystem via its diet adaptability 

      Vejřík, Lukáš; Vejříková, Ivana; Blabolil, Petr; Eloranta, Antti; Kočvara, Luboš; Peterka, Jiří; Sajdlová, Zuzana; The Chung, Son Hoang; Šmejkal, Marek; Kiljunen, Mikko; Cech, Martin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Apex predators play a key role in ecosystem stability across environments but their numbers in general are decreasing. By contrast, European catfish (Silurus glanis), the European freshwater apex predator, is on the increase. ...
