In April , the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) released its recovery plan for the jaguar Panthera onca after several decades of discussion, litigation and controversy about the status of the species in the USA. The USFWS estimated that potential habitat, south of the Interstate- highway in Arizona and New Mexico, had a carrying capacity of c. six jaguars, and so focused its recovery programme on areas south of the USA–Mexico border. Here we present a systematic review of the… Expand

Impending anthropogenic threats and protected area prioritization for the largest Neotropical apex predator in its Amazonian stronghold
TLDR
It is revealed that jaguars in the world’s largest tropical forest biome are threatened by deforestation associated with anthropogenic fires, and subsequent establishment of pastures, and a shortlist of protected areas that should be prioritized for short-term jaguar conservation is provided.
