Abstract:

Five stages of faunistic studies in Poland can be distinguished, differing in tasks, principles and methods applied. In Stage One [from the annalists to the Commission of National Education (1773)] faunistic informationwas collected in order to describe the resources and wealth of the country. In Stage Two (1773–1855) the ideas of Enlightenment put into practice resulted in the preparation of new textbooks based on verified information on faunal resources. In Stage Three (1855–1918) faunistic research became an integral part of the physiographic studies of the old ethnic Polish territory. In Stage Four (1918–1945) a detailed programme of regional faunistic studies was developed on the territory under Polish rule. It was based on new methodology of faunistic research. In Stage Five (1945 till now) quantitative methods were incorporated into faunistic research. Fauna is examined as an important national resource and the investigations are carried out mostly in defined ecosystems such as forests, agrocoenoses, meadows and towns.
