PB is a large, compact forest complex covering an area of about 1500 square kilometers. The Catalogue is addressed not only to zoologists of different specialities, working on fauna, zoogeography and ecology, but also to natural scientists of other specialists, for whom the presented synthetic information about all the PB animals could be useful. It can be successfully used by all those dealing with the protection of fauna, forest processes, and also by foresters and nature lovers, to whom the forest is especially close.
