A New Felid from the Late Miocene of the Balkans and the Contents of the Genus Metailurus Zdansky, 1924 (Carnivora, Felidae)
TLDR
A well-preserved felid skull from the Turolian of Karaslari (FY Republic of Macedonia) is described and assigned to a new taxon, Yoshi garevskii, suggesting that it represents the first attempt towards the morpho-functional model of this modern felid. Expand
Oryx callotis (Artiodactyla: Bovidae)
Abstract: Oryx callotis O. Thomas, 1982 (fringe-eared oryx) is a relatively large, long-bodied bovid, with an appropriate common name because of its distinguishing tufts of hair extending from theExpand
Conservation Genomic Analyses of African and Asiatic Cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) Across Their Current and Historical Species Range
TLDR
Clear genetic differentiation between the sub-species of cheetah is found, thus refuting earlier assumptions that cheetahs show only little population differentiation and providing new and important information for efficient genetic monitoring, subspecies assignments and evidence-based conservation policy decisions. Expand
Minimum prey and area requirements of the Vulnerable cheetah Acinonyx jubatus: implications for reintroduction and management of the species in South Africa
TLDR
The large area requirements of cheetahs have implications for the development of the managed metapopulation and innovative measures to increase the carrying capacity of reserves for cheetah reserves and/or to enlarge reserves will be required. Expand
Cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) running the gauntlet: an evaluation of translocations into free-range environments in Namibia
TLDR
It is found that there are currently few public and/or private reserves large enough to contain the movement profiles of cheetah movements observed in this study, which suggests that most translocations will result in cheetahs re-entering farmlands where they face a high risk of persecution. Expand
Prey preferences of the cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) (Felidae: Carnivora): morphological limitations or the need to capture rapidly consumable prey before kleptoparasites arrive?
TLDR
The results will illustrate which potential prey species of local conservation concern should be monitored for impact from cheetahs as several species are likely to be preyed upon more frequently than others. Expand
Trends in cheetah Acinonyx jubatus density in north‐central Namibia
TLDR
This poster presents a probabilistic analysis of the cheetah population in Namibia, which shows clear signs of decline in the second half of the twentieth century. Expand
The distribution and numbers of cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) in southern Africa
TLDR
The population estimate for confirmed cheetah presence areas is 11% lower than the IUCN’s current assessment for the same region, lending additional support to the recent call for the up-listing of this species from vulnerable to endangered status. Expand
Saharan cheetah Acinonyx jubatus hecki, a ghostly dweller on Niger's Termit massif
Abstract The Saharan cheetah Acinonyx jubatus hecki, once broadly distributed across north-western Africa, now occurs in only 9% of its former range and is categorized as Critically Endangered on theExpand
Updated ranges of the Vulnerable cheetah and Endangered African wild dog in Angola
Abstract The civil unrest that ravaged Angola for nearly 30 years took a heavy toll on the country's wildlife, and led to a lengthy absence of reliable information for many threatened species,Expand

ABSTRACT The taxonomy of the North American cheetah-like cats is unresolved as they have been assigned at different times to Felis, Puma, or Acinonyx. A recently discovered, nearly complete skeletonExpand
MORPHOLOGICAL VARIABILITY AND ASYMMETRY IN THE CHEETAH (ACINONYX JUBATUS), A GENETICALLY UNIFORM SPECIES
TLDR
The inverse correlation of genetic variation and developmental stability (homeostasis) observed here fulfills prior expectations and further emphasizes the genetic invariability of the cheetah species. Expand
The Cheetah Is Depauperate in Genetic Variation
TLDR
A sample of 55 South African cheetahs from two geographically isolated populations in South Africa were found to be genetically monomorphic at each of 47 allozyme (allelic isozyme) loci, significantly lower than levels of variation reported in other cats and mammals in general. Expand
Demography of the Serengeti cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus) population: the first 25 years
TLDR
Cheetah reproductive success was lower during the period of high lion abundance (1980‐1994) than during the earlier period of relatively few lions (1969‐1979) and lifetime reproductive success declined from 2.1 to 1.6 cubs reared to independence, and the reproductive rate decreased from the earlier to the later period. Expand
Ecological characteristics of territories of male cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus)
TLDR
Over two years, evidence suggested that territories occupied by males of larger group size contained greater numbers of Thomson's gazelles, and territories that remained vacant seemed to contain rather little prey. Expand
Status of the cheetah Acinonyx jubatus in Kenya : a field-interview assessment
Abstract A field-interview survey of the distribution and abundance of the cheetah Acinonyx jubatus was conducted in Kenya between May and September 1989, and June and August 1990. Two hundred andExpand

Genetic basis for species vulnerability in the cheetah.
TLDR
The extreme genetic monomorphism, especially at the major histocompatibility complex, and the apparent hypersensitivity of the cheetah to a viral pathogen may be related, provide a biological basis for understanding the adaptive significance of abundant genetic variation in outbred mammalian species.

Cheetahs of the Serengeti Plains: Group Living in an Asocial Species
TLDR
Tim Caro explores group and solitary living among cheetahs and discovers that the causes of social behaviour vary dramatically, even within a single species, and shows that neither adolescents nor adult males benefit from hunting in groups. Expand
