ABSTRACT: We analyzed the food habits of the jaguar (Panthera onca) and puma (Puma concolor) in a protected area surrounded by a fragmented landscape in northeastern Mexico. We estimated relative biomass of each prey species consumed; by analysis of 43 and 22 scat samples of jaguar and puma collected during 2010–2012. The diet of both felids was comprised mainly of wild artiodactyls; the collared peccary contributed 35.2% to the biomass of jaguar diets and white-tailed deer contributed 51.9… 
Jaguar (Panthera onca) and puma (Puma concolor) diets in Quintana Roo, Mexico
TLDR
The diet breadths of jaguar and puma indicated a high degree of prey specialization, which combined with their dietary overlap suggested competition between them, however, both felids showed a preference for red brocket deer Mazama temama, and frequently consumed collared peccaries Pecari tajacu.
What are jaguars eating in a half-empty forest? Insights from diet in an overhunted Caatinga reserve
TLDR
It is demonstrated that jaguars are able to shift their diet to small prey when larger quarry is scarce, and subsisting in such a stressful trophic position may lead to decreased levels of recruitment and low emigration rate.
Ecology and Conservation of Tropical Ungulates in Latin America
Sierra La Laguna Biosphere Reserve (SLLBR), located in the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula in the Cape Region of the State of Baja California Sur (BCS), México, harbors both the unique
Genetic Diversity and Population Structure of Mesoamerican Jaguars (Panthera onca): Implications for Conservation and Management
TLDR
To maintain a critical linkage for jaguars dispersing through the Mesoamerican landscape and ensure long-term viability of this near threatened species, it is recommended continued management and maintenance of jaguar corridors.
Prey Preferences of the Jaguar Panthera onca Reflect the Post-Pleistocene Demise of Large Prey
TLDR
Jaguars have an unusual predator to prey body mass ratio, show limited effect of prey morphology as a driver of prey selection, lack evidence of optimal foraging beyond their preferred prey, and an absence of preferentially hunting on Cetartiodactyla herbivores.
Can Scat Analysis Describe the Feeding Habits of Big Cats? A Case Study with Jaguars (Panthera onca) in Southern Pantanal, Brazil
TLDR
The results show that scat analysis is effective and capable of describing jaguar feeding habits and compared the frequencies of prey found through each method.
Home range of a male jaguar spatially associated with the landfill of the city of Playa del Carmen, Mexico
TLDR
It was found that the presence of the Playa del Carmen landfill had a clear influence on a male jaguar’s home range and movements, and the results showed that maleJaguars are surviving in areas previously not considered as jaguars habitat and are taking advantage of the human resources within.
The Mule Deer of the Mapimí Biosphere Reserve
In this chapter we present information collected from the population of mule deer in Mapimi, the first Biosphere Reserve in Mexico and Latin America. The reserve was decreed in 1979, covers 342,388
Microhabitat and presence of top predators affect prey apprehension in a subtropical mountain forest
TLDR
Predator presence in the area modified temporally the perception of predation risk in prey, which expressed more apprehension and foraged less inThe area at those times when predators were photographed in the Area.

Food habits of sympatric jaguars and pumas across a gradient of human disturbance
TLDR
It is suggested that jaguar predation on cattle may be reduced by ensuring that game hunting is sustainable and potentially by augmenting forests within the human matrix with large wild ungulates.
Food Habits and Livestock Depredation of Sympatric Jaguars and Pumas in the Iguaçu National Park Area, South Brazil
TLDR
Degree of diet overlap between jaguar and puma in INP suggests that coexistence was likely driven by exploitative competition through some degree of food partitioning, and the importance of more actions toward increasing numbers of large ungulates to preserve the population of jaguars in InP is highlighted.
Food habits of jaguars and pumas in Jalisco, Mexico
TLDR
There was a high degree of overlap between jaguar and puma diets, but pumas had a broader food niche than jaguars, and their ability to exploit smaller prey may give them an advantage over jaguARS when faced with human-induced habitat changes.
Foraging ecology of jaguar (Panthera onca) and puma (Puma concolor) in hunted and non‐hunted sites within the Maya Biosphere Reserve, Guatemala
TLDR
Jaguar and puma in both hunted and non-hunted sites obtained similar dietary contributions from large prey to their respective diets despite differences in the abundance of these prey species.
Biogeographic variation of food habits and body size of the America puma
TLDR
The puma has the most extensive range of any terrestrial mammal in the Western Hemisphere, covering over 100° latitude, and food habits of different puma subspecies vary with latitude.
Jaguar (Panthera onca) Food Habits in Atlantic Rain Forest of Southeastern Brazil 1
TLDR
Analysis of relative prey frequency and biomass indicated that the diet of a relict population of jaguars in Brazil was concentrated in two prey types: long-nosed armadillo and white-lipped peccary.
Jaguar (Panthera onca) Food Habits in Atlantic Rain Forest of Southeastern Brazil1
Between January and December 1996, the food habits of a relict population of jaguars were studied in 220 km2 Linhares Forest Preserve, which comprises much of the remaining old-growth Atlantic Forest
Diet and prey profiles of three sympatric large carnivores in Bandipur Tiger Reserve, India
TLDR
The prediction that abundance of ungulate prey species, as well as their availability in different size classes, are both critical factors that facilitate sympatry among the three predators are supported.
The Food Habits of Sympatric Jaguar and Puma in the Paraguayan Chaco
TLDR
In a developed region no significant differences between their diets were found, while in an undeveloped area more small mammals were taken by both species, and jaguar took more large prey than puma.
Food habits of pumas in northwestern Sonora, Mexico
TLDR
Food habits of pumas in the Sonoran Desert of northwestern Sonora, Mexico are determined, finding high percentage of desert bighorn sheep in puma diets may be due to high abundance relative to mule deer, which declined in number during this study.
