Despite having a large range in the Romanian Carpathians, the ecology of Eurasian lynx is relatively misunderstood, particularly concerning the size of its home range and utilized resources.
By means of a collar equipped with a GPS device, the movements of a mature lynx female were monitored for a period of 305 days in the northwestern section of Vrancea Mountains. The area of the female’s home range is estimated at 486.11 km2, a significantly larger area than what had been recorded previously for Romania. The probability of lynx occurrence is slightly diminished with
each 1% decrease in coniferous forest cover, mixed forest, natural grassland, and shrub cover, and is considerably augmented by increasing spatial heterogeneity. To protect the Romanian lynx population effectively, the application of landscape-scale forestry management strategies is needed,
instead of multiple uncorrelated management plans for the different protected areas located in the
