Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis analysis of faecal bacterial communities of marmot (Marmota marmota latirostris) in the Tatra mountains and the fragmentation of marmot population
Fecal samples of Alpine Marmot were collected from 8 localities in High, Low and West Tatras. DGGE analysis revealed several bacterial species involved in bowel fermentation. There dominated Selenomonas ruminantium, Ruminococcus albus, Butyrivibrio sp., Megasphaera elsdenii and Escherichia coli. Bifidobacteria estimated by separate DGGE were represented mainly by Bifidobacterium bifidum, B. longum and B. breve. Dendrogram homology of the whole bacterial population was separating samples from different mountain ranges.
