Seasonal Home Range Changes of the Sichuan Snub-Nosed Monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana) in the Qinling Mountains of China
The seasonal changes in home range and habitat use of the Sichuan snub-nosed monkey, Rhinopithecus roxellana, have been studied by radio tracking and direct observation in the Qinling Mountains of…
Reproductive parameters of wild female Rhinopithecus roxellana
It is concluded that the wild female Golden snub‐nosed monkeys in Qinling Mountains start giving birth at an age of 5 or 6 years, consistent with the hypothesis that these reproductive characteristics are a result of adaptation to the seasonality of mountain climate and food resources.
Human–carnivore conflict: ecological and economical sustainability of predation on livestock by snow leopard and other carnivores in the Himalaya

Human communities in the Trans-Himalayan region depend on the dynamics of the agro-pastoral system for survival. Humans, livestock and wild predators share common resources in the region, and this…
Predicting the distributions of predator (snow leopard) and prey (blue sheep) under climate change in the Himalaya
It is predicted that future climate may alter the predator–prey spatial interaction inducing a lower degree of overlap and a higher degree of mismatch between snow leopard and blue sheep niches, which suggests increased energetic costs of finding preferred prey for snow leopards.
Contact rates between possums revealed by proximity data loggers
The data reveal that females are probably also promiscuous and that the mating system of possums may therefore be polygamous, including both polygyny and polyandry, and provides some support for the role that could be played by sexually transmitted, viral-vectored immunocontraception in the control of possum populations.

Compared the range, habitat used, population size, and diet of a troop of Sichuan snub-nosed monkeys (ERT) in the Qinling Mountains before, during, and after commercial logging, logging significantly changed the composition of the forest and the food supply for the troop.
Multipronged strategy including genetic analysis for assessing conservation options for the snow leopard in the central Himalaya
Abstract The snow leopard (Panthera uncia) is an endangered carnivore of southern and central Asia. Approximate 10% of the global population occurs in the Himalayan region of Nepal. The snow leopard…
Blue sheep in the Annapurna Conservation Area, Nepal: habitat use, population biomass and their contribution to the carrying capacity of snow leopards.
The results of the study show that a higher density of blue sheep is associated with greater plant species diversity and that the existing blue sheep population biomass in the upper Mustang region could support approximately 19 snow leopards.
Social dynamics of the golden snub‐nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana): female transfer and one‐male unit succession

The results suggest that golden snub‐nosed monkeys are organized in a nonmatrilineal social system, and female mate choice and possibly incest avoidance appear to play important roles in female transfer, male tenure, and OMU stability.
Satellite telemetry and social modeling offer new insights into the origin of primate multilevel societies
It is shown that several one-male units form a cohesive breeding band that associates with one or more all- male units to form a herd, thus facilitating gene flow and inbreeding avoidance in golden snub-nosed monkey MLS.
