Diet analysis is a prerequisite to fully understand the biology of a species and the functioning of ecosystems. [...] Key Method We applied this approach to the analysis of the vertebrate component of leopard cat diet in two ecologically distinct regions in northern Pakistan. Despite being a relatively common species with a wide distribution in Asia, little is known about this elusive predator. We analysed a total of 38 leopard cat faeces.Expand
