Abstract

Human activities are affecting on peace in habitat, habitat quality and distribution of species. The goal of this study was to analyze activity patterns and habitat use of humans, large carnivores and ungulates in the forest, in order to find out their mutual influences. Large carnivores and humans most commonly used primary and secondary forest roads, while ungulates preferedlogging roads and animal trails, in order to avoid them. Large carnivores are most active at night, and so avoiding the humans which are primarily active during the day. On animal trails where the presence of humans and large carnivores is low, ungulates are active throughout the day.Large mammals and humans do not retain on forest roads, logging roads and animal trails, but pass, ie. they use them for movement.
