Abstract (in english)
   The extensive fossil record was examined to reveal the geographic variation in patterns of the Pleistocene-Holocene faunal turnover. The considerable differences were found between the Mediterranean region (Balkans including) and central Europe. The response of individual species to the climate fluctuations was not concerned, the central European interglacial communities did nowhere survived. The metapopulation dynamics, an essential factor of the response, has mostly operated rather on small than large geographic and time scales
