Estimating animal density without individual recognition using information derivable exclusively from camera traps
Careful application of the random encounter and staying time model provides the potential to estimate density of many ground-dwelling vertebrates lacking individually recognizable markings, and thus should be an effective method for population monitoring.
Space use, habitat selection, and day-beds of the common palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) in human-modified habitats in Sabah, Borneo
The results indicate that fruit availability and suitable day-bed sites may be important for the survival of common palm civets in human-modified habitats and should be preserved or restored for civet conservation.
Assessment of landscape‐scale distribution of sympatric great apes in African rainforests: Concurrent use of nest and camera‐trap surveys
The authors' analyses showed that both methods provided roughly consistent results for the distribution patterns of the species; chimpanzee groups (parties) were more abundant in the montane forest, and gorilla groups were relatively homogeneously distributed across vegetation types.
Importance of common palm civets (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) as a long-distance disperser for large-seeded plants in degraded forests
It is indicated that common palm civets play an important role in the dispersal of large-seeded plants as long-distance dispersers, probably surpassing macaques.
Fibroblast activation protein-α-expressing fibroblasts promote the progression of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma
The present in vitro results and the association of FAP expression with clinical outcomes provide a better understanding of the effect of F AP-expressing CAFs on the progression of PDAC.
Functional uniqueness of a small carnivore as seed dispersal agents: a case study of the common palm civets in the Tabin Wildlife Reserve, Sabah, Malaysia
It is found that macaques dispersed the seeds randomly, while civets dispersed them non-randomly to sites such as the banks of small rivers, rain-flow paths, abandoned trails, and treefall gaps, which are characterized by low stem density and canopy cover.
Inventorying medium- and large-sized mammals in the African lowland rainforest using camera trapping
I compiled a list of mediumand large-sized mammals (excluding Rodentia) in Moukalaba-Doudou National Park, Gabon. Additionally, I evaluated the efficiency of camera trapping for inventorying these
Population Density and Habitat Preferences of Forest Duikers in Moukalaba-Doudou National Park, Gabon
We conducted a line-transect survey via direct observation to estimate the densities of forest duikers in Moukalaba-Doudou National Park, Gabon. Five 2-km line transects were established in different
Predicted distribution of the leopard cat Prionailurus bengalensis (Mammalia: Carnivora: Felidae) on Borneo
Almost the entire area of Sabah, Sarawak, Brunei and East Kalimantan were predicted to be suitable habitat for the leopard cat and no conservation actions are needed for this species.
