ECOLOGY OF THREE SYMPATRIC FELIDS IN A MIXED EVERGREEN FOREST IN NORTH-CENTRAL THAILAND
Abstract We report on the natural history of 3 rare and mostly unstudied felids, the clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa), Asiatic golden cat (Catopuma temminckii), and marbled cat (Pardofelis…
Spatial organization and diet of the leopard cat ( Prionailurus bengalensis ) in north-central Thailand
Analysis of scats indicated that murids dominated leopard cat diet and habitat use was generally in proportion to occurrence, and the mean activity was arrhythmic with crepuscular and nocturnal peaks.
Estimating Bobcat Abundance Using Automatically Triggered Cameras
Abstract Ineffective survey methods of carnivores limit the ability of managers and researchers to make sound research conclusions and management recommendations. Because bobcats (Lynx rufus) are…
Spatial ecology and diet of the dhole Cuon alpinus (Canidae, Carnivora) in north central Thailand
Two adult male dholes Cuon alpinus belonging to 2 different packs were radio collared and tracked between March 2000 and October 2002 in Phu Khieo Wildlife Sanctuary, Thailand. Dholes occupied…
Using automatically triggered cameras to individually identify bobcats
Though not symmetrically marked, bobcats were identified using body characteristics and natural markings, suggesting the ability to identify bobcats by natural markings can provide an alternative to physical capture for mark-recapture experiments.
Microsatellite variation in two populations of mountain lions (Puma concolor) in Texas
Texas mountain lions had less genetic variation than previously reported for the species in other parts of its range, according to the sampled genetic var.
Effects of a highway and mitigation projects on bobcats in Southern Texas
Ranging, habitat use and activity patterns of binturong Arctictis binturong and yellow-throated marten Martes flavigula in north-central Thailand
Yellow-throated martens traveled an average of 966 m/day and activity was characterized as diurnal, but increases in nocturnal activity increased during lunar nights (± 7 days from full moon), indicating that binturongs were arrhythmic and crepuscular.
Reduced genetic diversity and isolation of remnant ocelot populations occupying a severely fragmented landscape in southern Texas
The ocelot Leopardus pardalis has become a conservation priority in the US as a result of severe population decline and loss of habitat during the 20th century. Only two small populations remain in…
