Les methodes de chasse et de selection des proies different pour chacun des prödateurs otudies, meme lorsqu'ils s'attaquent a la meme espece (gazelle de Thomson). La taille des gibiers recherche" s est ogalement variable. Le regime alimentaire peut difforer suivant 1'individu (chez les teopards) ou le sexe (lions). Le nombre de predateurs par proie peut etre soit f net ion (cas des lions), soit independant (cas des cynhyenes) de la taille de celle-ci. La gazelle de Thomson constitue la base de…

Standardisation of scat analysis techniques for leopard (Panthera pardus) in Gir National Park, Western India

Le nombre minimal de poils qu'il est necessaire d'examiner par crotte et le nombre minimal de crottes qui permettent d'estimer le regime de la panthere dans la foret de Gir ont ete etablis. L'examen

Ontogénèse des comportements de prédation et rôle de l’expérience alimentaire précoce chez Mustela putorius

Great modifications of female predatory behaviour are noted, and mainly an inhibition of kill behaviour, however, the nourishment by female does not seem to induce great dependance in food choice of young polecats.

Foraging behaviour and hunting success of lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda

Cover, prey availability and prey body size appeared to be the major causes of variation in lion foraging behaviour between study sites, and lions foraged most often during moonless nights, when their hunting success was greatest.

The spatial ecology of lion (Panthera leo) and spotted hyaena (Crocuta crocuta) in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park : implications for the African wild dog (Lycaon pictus.

The ecological role of apex predators in ecosystems is increasingly recognized not only as a result of their affects on prey species, but also on the numbers and behaviour of other predator species

Cheetah Acinonyx jubatus feeding ecology in the Kruger National Park and a comparison across African savanna habitats: is the cheetah only a successful hunter on open grassland plains?

The literature on cheetah Acinonyx jubatus ecology is dominated by studies on the Serengeti Plains (SNP) in East Africa. Because of this and the cheetah's hunting strategy it is generally considered

Lion-Porcupine Interactions in Africa, Including Impacts on Lion Predatory Behavior

Porcupine-lion interactions and their impact on lion behaviour are reviewed, including: 1) lion predation on porcupines; 2) lions injured or killed by porcupine quills; and 3) a case of a lion severely injured by a porcupin quill.

Leopard food habits in the Lopé National Park, Gabon, Central Africa

To determine leopard Panthera pardus (Linnaeus) food habits in the Lope National Park in Gabon, Central Africa, 196 leopard scats were collected and analysed and a minimum of 30 different prey species were identified, 27 of which were mammalian.

Ecology and conservation of leopards, Panthera pardus, on selected game ranches in the Waterberg region, Limpopo, South Africa

Leopards (Panthera pardus) currently inhabit large parts outside formal conservation areas in South Africa. While leopards are not currently threatened in South Africa, regional populations are at

Non-Human Predator Interactions with Wild Great Apes in Africa and the Use of Camera Traps to Study Their Dynamics

Research methods that combine the use of remote camera traps, capture-mark-recapture statistics and occupancy modelling to study predator-African ape relationships and potential antipredator behaviour through spatial variation in species co-occurrence patterns are presented.
