Početnost kopytníků se v posledních letech prudce zvyšuje nejen v Evropě, ale i v Severní Americe a na Novém Zélandu. Výzkum prováděný v různých částech Evropy potvrdil, že nadměrný stav jelenovitých omezuje rozmanitost zpěvných ptáků, drobných savců a některých bezobratlých. Při intenzivní pastvě v bylinném patře dochází k nezanedbatelnému poškozování půd.
The Bundala, Uda Walawe and Yala National Parks (NPs) situated in southern Sri Lanka are covered mainly by partially deciduous monsoon forests, thornbush with grassland patches, at some sites also by wet monsoon forests. Diversified habitats harbour species-rich fauna there.
The Czech Society for Ornithology (CSO), in collaboration with other partners including the Nature Conservation Agency of the Czech Republic, declared the Western Capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) as the Bird of the Year 2012.
The Mladeč Caves are an important speleological and particularly archaeological site, because of a ritual burial ground of anatomically modern humans Homo sapiens sapiens from the Upper Palaeolithic Age (more than 31,000 years ago) found there.
Vačkář D., Melichar J., Lorencová E. & Hönigová I.: Ecosystem Service Assessment Applied for Grassla
Abandonment of traditional small-scale farming combined with the agricultural intensification during the last decades has lead to a significant decline in semi-natural grasslands and correlated ecosystem goods and services.
By the Red List of Threatened Species in the Czech Republic (Kučera & Váňa 2005), the epiphytis moss Dicranum viride is considered as Endangered within the country.

Palaeobotanical methods have recently revealed that the Doksy Area (North Bohemia) is an isolated hemiboreal lowland coniferous forest on the southwestern edge of its global distribution range. At the same time, vegetation is a relic from the early Holocene developed on the landscape scale there.

Habitat fragmentation and consequent loss of the landscape connectivity by transport infrastructure, particularly by highways, threaten many wild animal species. Transport infrastructure permeability for fauna can be provided by either underpass tunnels under highways, or by special wildlife overpasses (ecoductes) above highways.
