Recent declines in large herbivores have led to significant conservation efforts globally. However, the niche-specific megaherbivores residing outside protected areas face more imminent extinction threats. Swamp deer, the obligate grassland-dwelling endemic cervid is the most extinction-prone megaherbivore in the Indian subcontinent. Limited information on distribution and habitat status pose significant conservation and management challenges for the remaining fragmented populations in north…

Current distribution and status of swamp deer Rucervus duvaucelii duvaucelii in the upper Gangetic plains of north India

Abstract The swamp deer Rucervus duvaucelii is the largest grassland-dwelling endemic cervid of India and Nepal. With a declining population trend across its range, this species is found in

Identification of suitable habitat for Swamp Deer Rucervus duvaucelii duvaucelii (Mammalia: Artiodactyla: Cervidae) in Chitwan National Park, Nepal

Swamp Deer is a globally threatened large-sized deer species confined within small patches of the Indian subcontinent.  Historically, Swamp Deer occurred in Chitwan National Park, Nepal but was

ASSESSMENT OF SWAMP DEER HABITAT IN AND AROUND JHILMIL JHEEL CONSERVATION RESERVE, HARIDWAR, UTTARAKHAND, INDIA

Swamp deer (Rucervus duvaucelii duvaucelii) or Barasingha is categorized as vulnerable on the IUCN Red list. With a global population of less than 5,000 the species has a very limited distribution

Modelling the Species Distribution of Flat-Headed Cats (Prionailurus planiceps), an Endangered South-East Asian Small Felid

It is recommended that future conservation efforts for the flat-headed cat should focus on the identified remaining key localities and be implemented through a continuous dialogue between local stakeholders, conservationists and scientists to ensure its long-term survival.

Rapid molecular assays for species and sex identification of swamp deer and other coexisting cervids in human-dominated landscapes of the Terai region and upper Gangetic plains, northern India: implications in understanding species distribution and population parameters

Molecular approaches provide an easy, quick and cheap option to generate critical information on herbivore population parameters and aid their conservation in this mosaic of protected and non-protected grassland habitats.

Maxent-directed field surveys identify new populations of narrowly endemic habitat specialists

It is concluded that Maxent is a suitable tool for the discovery of new populations of narrowly endemic, rare habitat specialists and the technique may be used for other rare, endemic organisms.

Estimation of large herbivore densities in the tropical forests of southern India using distance sampling

A comparison with densities estimated for these species in other well-protected parks showed that the chital, gaur and sambar densities in Bhadra were extremely low and the main causal factors for these low densities seem to be poaching and livestock grazing.

Predicting the potential invasion suitability of regions to cassava lacebug pests (Heteroptera: Tingidae: Vatiga spp.).

The model shows that Vatiga has the potential to expand its current distribution into other suitable areas, and could invade other regions where cassava is already cultivated, e.g., Central Africa and Asia.

Mammal richness and diversity in a Himalayan hotspot: the role of protected areas in conserving Bhutan’s mammals

Although Bhutan’s PA network is effective in conserving much of the country's mammal diversity, realignment of some protected areas and biological corridors would ensure the long-term protection of several threatened mammal species.
