Contribution to the history of the mammal fauna of east germany 2. the lynx lynx lynx linnaeus 1758



Hercynia 25(2): 144-168



A total of 164 historically authentic references to lynxes in the present territory of East Germany was analyzed. It was attempted to trace the regression in lynx distribution. This process is characterized especially in the 17th and 18th century by splintering of the area of distribution. The last islands of distribution disappeared in the late 18th century. No references to lynxes were found in the next 150 yrs, until temporary resettlements in the Dugbener Heide and the Elbsandstein region reappeared in the second half of the 20th century. This occurrence was explained based on population dynamic laws and geographic factors. The triggers for the regression were changes in the habitat, which were already in effect between the 8th and 12th centuries (cultivation), and relentless hunting of the European big cats.
