The laboratory was created within the Institute of Zoology of A.S.M in 1961. In 1976 on the basis of this laboratory two laboratories were created: Ornithology and Mammal Ecology.
2001 – Laboratory of Terrestrial Vertebrates; 
2009 – Laboratory of Mammal Ecology and Paleozoology;
2010 – Laboratory of Mammal Ecology and Laboratory of Ornithology;
2012 – Laboratory of Teriology, Herpetology and Paleozoology and Laboratory of Ornithology;
2018 – Laboratory of Terrestrial Vertebrates.

Laboratorul este un centru de cercetări în domeniul zoologiei, ecologiei vertebratelor terestre, fiziologiei şi etologiei mamiferelor, păsărilor, reptilelor şi amfibienilor, atât în republică, cât şi în Sud – Estul Europei.

The laboratory is a research center in the field of zoology, ecology of terrestrial vertebrates, physiology and ethology of mammals, reptiles and amphibians in the republic as well as in South-Eastern Europe.

Organizational structure:
•    Group of mammal study,
•    Group of ornithofauna study,
•    Group of reptile and amphibian study,
•    Interdepartamental Group for Game Fauna study,
•    Museum of Faunistic Fossil Complexex from Moldova and group of paleozoology.

The staff has unique knowledge in the research area and posses a high level of theoretical and practical training, which allows solving both scientific and applied tasks, with implementation of the obtained results in the national economy.  

Research direction of the laboratory is:  study of diversity, structural-functional organization and evolution of terrestrial vertebrate communities, protection, improvement and elaboration of conception of practical use of economically important fauna diversity under the conditions of anthropic and climatic changes.

Fundamental researches:  Monitoring, study of diversity, adaptive potential and evolutionary aspects of terrestrial vertebrate species of economic interest, rare and endangered, revealing of environmental factors that lead to the modifications of community structure at various taxonomic levels in the zone of bio-geographic interference.

Applied researches: Distribution, number dynamics and the role of dominant predator species from agricultural and forest complexes in pest number regulation, elaboration of prognosis models of pest dynamics. Elucidating the impact of invasive and harmful species.

Obtained results

•    Inventory of mammal fauna (71 species), ornithofauna (285 species) and herpetofauna (14 reptile species, 13 amphibian species) of the Republic of Moldova was performed; 
•    Evolution of terrestrial vertebrate communities in natural and anthropized ecosystems was studied; 
•    Spatial-functional structure and mechanisms of regulation of rodent populations in agrocenoses were revealed;
•    Biocenotic relations and the functional role of common species and of various cohorts in stability of animal populations and communities were emphasized;
•    Distribution, number dynamics, bioenergetic potential and the role of dominant species in arboreous complex „gardens-woods” in regulation of harmful insect number were established;
•    Biological-ecological peculiarities of endangered and vulnerable terrestrial vertebrate species were emphasized and recommendations on their protection were ellaborated.
•    Three new species for science have been described: Rucervus radulescui Croitor, 2018 from Valea Grăunceanului, Rucervus gigans Croitor, 2018 from Apollonia, Praeelaphus australorientalis Croitor, 2017 from the Pliocene of Southeast Europe based on fossil materials from the National Museum of Ethnography and Natural History and the Institute of Speleology in Bucharest. The genus Rucervus was first reported in Europe. For the first time, the species Cervus canadensis Erxleben 1777 (wapiti) was described on the territory of the Republic of Moldova and confirmed the presence of the species on the European continent.
