From 2007 to 2012, banding was conducted on a total of 7,570 birds from ten species focusing on major habitats for migrant birds. A total of 56 birds of six species that were attached with bands were recovered. 33 birds of six species were attached and collected in Korea, 20 birds from five species were attached in Korea and collected overseas, and three birds from one species were attached overseas and collected in Korea. It was found that in the case of Korean ducks that migrate during the winter, they traveled more than 3,000 km. Most of the ducks that were collected in Korea were found in areas near the area that they were set free (within 10 km). It is presumed that most ducks return to areas that they traveled from for the winter season and it is judged that they do not move much unless there is a big interference factor. Therefore, it is assessed that for the protective management of ducks and geese, continuous and systematic management and preservation plans are necessary for small rivers and habitats for migratory birds. © 2013 Korean Biodiversity Information Facility.

Nematopodius (Nematopodius) flavoguttatus Uchida is recorded from Korea for the first time and this is the first representative of the genus from Korea. This species was described based on two females from Japan. Therefore, we provide a redescription of the species based on new materials from Korea, and report our observation on color variation of males from Korea and Japan. •Nematopodius flavoguttatus is recorded from Korea for the first time.•Redescription of the species including a brief description of the male is provided.•Color variation of the males from Korea and Japan is reported. © 2013 Korean Society of Applied Entomology, Taiwan Entomological Society and Malaysian Plant Protection Society.

This study aimed to estimate the home range of Eurasian Eagle Owl (Bubo bubo) from May to November 2012. Bubo bubo were rescued by Chungnam Wild Animal Rescue Center. WT-100 weigh 83g. Analysis of home ranges used a SHP File and ArcGIS 9.0 for GIS, and used a Kernel Density Estimation (KDE) and Minimum Convex Polygon (MCP) for analysis. Home range were 39.1 km2 (MCP) and 27.8 km2 (KDE 95%), 20.9km2 (KDE 90%), 4.2km2 (KDE 50%). Home range of Bubo bubo showed very similar results to the previous study. That is result of opportunistic foraging tactics to selecting prey. © 2013 Korean Biodiversity Information Facility. Source

This study conducted the survey of birds, twice from June 25 to 29 and from September 3 to 9, 2012 in Ulleung Island. The total number of individual birds observed in Ulleung Island was 5,692 and they consisted of 67 species of the 38 families belonging to 12 orders. In June, 5,091 individuals of 42 species were observed, and 2,099 individuals of 46 species in September. There were less individuals but more species in September and in June. At each region, 914 individuals (sum of the maximum count) of 37 species were observed at Nari Basin and Sunginbong. The dominant species were Carduelis sinica (35.78%), Passer rutilans (22.98%), Apus pacificus (5.47%), Hirundo rustica (4.38%), etc. In trekking trail areas, 1,063 individuals (sum of the maximum count) of 40 species were observed, which was more than those in Sunginbong. The dominant species were Passer rutilans (26.06%), Carduelis sinica (20.04%), Parus major (10.72%), Apus pacificus (7.62%), etc. In coastal area, 3,929 individuals (sum of the maximum count) of 48 species were observed. There were the largest number of species and individuals. The dominant species were Larus crassirostris (79.10%), Passer rutilans (5.45%), Apus pacificus (3.56%), etc. Through the addition of the newly observed 20 species in this research to the previous studies, the recorded birds in total in Ulleung Island were 112 species of 38 families belonging to 16 orders. © 2013 Korean Biodiversity Information Facility.

In order to conduct a study on diversity of benthic invertebrate in the intertidal zone of Ulleung-do (Ullengdo Island) and Dokdo, this study investigated the diversity of benthic invertebrate on harbor rocks of Ulleung-do (Jeodong Harbor), Tonggumi Mongdol Coast, Geobuk Bawi and rocks in Dokdo docks for twice in June and September. As a result, it was shown that total 26 species including 3 species of Cnidaria, 14 species of Mollusks, 6 species of Arthropod and 3 species of Echinoderm live in rocks of Dokdo docks, and as for Ulleung-do, it was shown that 24 species live on rocks of Tonggumi Mongdol Coast, 13 species in Geobuk Bawi and 2 species in Jeodong Harbor. © 2013 Korean Biodiversity Information Facility.
