Genetic Evidence of Tiger Population Structure and Migration within an Isolated and Fragmented Landscape in Northwest India
Background Majority of the tiger habitat in Indian subcontinent lies within high human density landscapes and is highly sensitive to surrounding pressures. These forests are unable to sustain healthyExpand

Improved Methods of Carnivore Faecal Sample Preservation, DNA Extraction and Quantification for Accurate Genotyping of Wild Tigers
Background Non-invasively collected samples allow a variety of genetic studies on endangered and elusive species. However due to low amplification success and high genotyping error rates fewerExpand

Philopatry and Dispersal Patterns in Tiger (Panthera tigris)
Background Tiger populations are dwindling rapidly making it increasingly difficult to study their dispersal and mating behaviour in the wild, more so tiger being a secretive and solitary carnivore.Expand

Is malaria the cause for decline in the wild population of the Indian White-backed vulture (Gyps bengalensis)?
The populations of three species of Gyps vultures have shown a decline of more than 95 % between 1988 and 1999 in the Indian subcontinent and are now classified as 'critically endangered'. TheExpand

Studies to determine presence or absence of the Indian tiger (Panthera tigris tigris) in Kawal Wildlife Sanctuary, India
A decade back, almost 300,000 km2 of forests in India were estimated to be potential tiger habitat. But consistent degradation and unsustainable anthropogenic pressures have adversely affected tigerExpand

Tiger abundance and gene flow in Central India are driven by disparate combinations of topography and land cover
Aim Effective conservation of the endangered tiger depends upon reliable knowledge of factors driving genetic differentiation and population connectivity. Connectivity models frequently useExpand

Genetic assessment of captive red panda (Ailurus fulgens) population
Abstract Red panda (Ailurus fulgens) is threatened across its range by detrimental human activities and rapid habitat changes necessitating captive breeding programs in various zoos globally to saveExpand

Validation of non-invasive genetic identification of two elusive , sympatric , sister-species – tiger ( Panthera tigris ) and leopard ( Panthera pardus )
Population and conservation genetic studies of endangered species increasingly rely on non-invasively collected samples like hair and faeces. The extant genotyping errors in such samples can beExpand
