Molecular data suggest population expansion and high level of gene flow in the Plain Tiger (Danaus chrysippus; Nymphalidae: Danainae)
Abstract In the present study, we sequenced the individuals of the Danaus chrysippus from the different altitudinal ranges in the western Himalayan state of Uttarakhand, India and compared with otherExpand

Understanding predation behaviour of the tiger (Panthera tigris tigris) in Ranthambore tiger Reserve, Rajasthan, India: use of low-cost gel based molecular sexing of prey hairs from scats
Diet reconstruction of carnivores elucidates ecology of the species and prey-predator relationship in different bioclimatic regions. Micro-histological analyses of undigested prey hairs from tigerExpand
