Populations of Oriental White-backed Vulture Gyps bengalensis and Long-billed Vulture G. indicus declined in India between the mid 1980s and late 1990s. Regional reports from India described declines of 95–100% across a wide area. This study was conducted to investigate the breeding success and pattern of mortality in two vulture colonies (Dholewala and Changa Manga) within Punjab Province, Pakistan between December 2000 and June 2001. Breeding success was found to be 62% in Dholewala and 59… 

High mortality and sex ratio imbalance in a critically declining Oriental White-backed Vulture population (Gyps bengalensis) in Pakistan

TLDR
The study reported here was conducted in Pakistan to compare the population size, breeding success, patterns of mortality and sex ratios among dead vultures and newly hatched nestlings of G. bengalensis and G. indicus at Toawala and Nagar Parkar during the breeding seasons 2005/2006 and 2006/2007.

Preliminary Population Viability Analyses for Oriental White-Backed Vulture Gyps bengalensis in Punjab province, Pakistan

INTRODUCTION Populations of three species of Gyps vultures in South Asia Gyps bengalensis, G. indiens and G. tenuirostris have declined precipitously over the last 10 years (Gilbert et al. 2002; Pain

Breeding Ecology and Distribution of White-rumped Vultures (Gyps bengalensis) in Himachal Pradesh, India

TLDR
Breeding ecology of White-rumped Vultures in Himachal Pradesh, northern India, 2009–2012 is studied, finding disturbance due to human activity and roads is a cause of concern for most of the breeding sites.

Diclofenac residues as the cause of vulture population decline in Pakistan

TLDR
Results are provided that directly correlate residues of the anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac with renal failure and renal failure in the Oriental white-backed vulture (OWBV) and it is proposed that residues of veterinary diclotenac are responsible for the OWBV decline.

Population and spatial breeding dynamics of a Critically Endangered Oriental White-backed Vulture Gyps bengalensis colony in Sindh Province, Pakistan

TLDR
The first analysis of spatial breeding dynamics for the Oriental White-backed Vulture is presented and it is described how a clustered pattern of nest trees in colonies supports a highly clustered patterns of nests.

A Survey of the Reproductive Activities at some Gyps Vulture Nests in Kanha, Bandhavgarh and Ranthambhore National Parks, India, in the 2002/2003 breeding season

INTRODUCTION Three south Asian Gyps vulture species (Oriental White-backed Vulture G. bengalensis (OWV), Long-billed Vulture G. indicus (LBV) and Slender-billed Vulture G. tenuirostris) are listed as

Rapid population declines and mortality clusters in three Oriental white-backed vulture Gyps bengalensis colonies in Pakistan due to diclofenac poisoning

TLDR
With populations declining by approximately 50% annually, the long term survival of Gyps vultures in South Asia will require the removal of diclofenac from vulture food and establishment of captive populations for future restoration once the environment is free from contamination.

A Case Study on Indian Vulture (Gyps indicus) rescued in Orchha, Madhya Pradesh, India

Once in millions, the vultures are now struggling for their survival. Scientists have reported 92-99% decline in vulture population in mid 1990s. Various reasons have been given for their rapid and

Population Status and Nesting Activity of White-Rumped Vulture Gyps bengalensis in Kotli District, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan

Abstract White-rumped Vulture Gyps bengalensis colonies are expanding in some areas of their range after a catastrophic decline, yet in other areas population status and ecology remain poorly known.

MORTALITY OF THE CAPE VULTURE

TLDR
It seems probable that recruitment to the breeding population at these colonies is insufficient to balance adult mortality and the population may be declining, and some conclusions can be deduced from the results.
