Identifying core habitats and corridors of a near threatened carnivore, striped hyaena (Hyaena hyaena) in southwestern Iran

Conservation of large carnivores requires preservation of extensive core habitats and linkages among them. The goal of this study was to identify core habitats and corridors by predicting habitat

Status, Distribution, and Threats of Striped Hyena (Hyaena hyaena Linnaeus, 1758) in Nepal: A Review

Striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena) is a member of the Hyaenidae family distributed globally from Africa to Central Tanzania, the Arabian Peninsula, Turkey, Central Asia, and the Indian subcontinent

High striped hyena density suggests coexistence with humans in an agricultural landscape, Rajasthan

Understanding the mechanism of coexistence, where carnivores adapt to humans and vice versa in the shared landscape, is a key determinant of long-term carnivore conservation but is yet to be

Sex Differences Dictate the Movement Patterns of Striped Hyenas, Hyaena hyaena, in a Human-Dominated Landscape

Large-carnivore populations have experienced significant declines in the past centuries in extended parts of the world. Habitat loss, fragmentation, and depletion of natural resources are some of the

Spatial segregation between wild ungulates and livestock outside protected areas in the lowlands of Nepal

Understanding how wildlife interacts with human activities across non-protected areas are critical for conservation. This is especially true for ungulates that inhabit human-dominated landscapes



The diet of the striped hyena in Nepal's lowland regions

More conservation effort is required in lowland areas of Nepal to protect the hyenas' natural prey species, particularly in wildlife habitats to reduce the lure of taking domestic livestock.

Factors influencing densities of striped hyenas (Hyaena hyaena) in arid regions of India

Abstract The striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena), despite being a threatened species, frequently occurs in human-dominated landscapes of India's Rajasthan State. We estimated hyena densities using

Status of Striped Hyena (Hyaena Hyaena Linnaeus, 1758) and Their Conservation Approaches in Rautahat and Sarlahi Forests, Nepal

The striped hyena is one of the least studied large carnivores in Nepal. We evaluated status of Striped hyena ( Hyaena hyaena Linnaeus, 1758) and their conservation approaches in Rautahat and Sarlahi

Striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena) status and factors affecting its distribution in the Gir National Park and Sanctuary, India

Abstract. The striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena Linnaeus, 1758) is a near threatened large carnivore having a wider distribution range than other hyenas. However, very little information is available

Food habits of striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena) in a semi-arid conservation area of India

The presence of domestic mammals in the scat remains implied that the striped hyena might frequently visit human habitation in search for food and hence, a potential conflict between human and wildlife might arise.


Striped hyena is one of the large carnivores of the forest and grassland ecosystem. This paper deals with the distribution and human hyena conflict status in Jajarkot, Kalikot, and Mahottari

Assessment of suitable habitat of near threatened striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena Linnaeus, 1758) using Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System

Application of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System as a tool has assumed immense significance in habitat suitability modelling for various wildlife species. Models are now widely used in

Diet of striped hyaena in northern Kenya

The study provides evidence to suggest that striped hyaenas predate on small livestock and demonstrate an opportunistic behaviour, which enables them to survive as the largest carnivore in this marginal environment.

Distribution of the Striped Hyaena (Hyaena hyaena syriaca Matius, 1882) (Carnivora: Hyaenidae) in urban and rural areas of Lebanon

Abstract Striped Hyaenas (Hyaena hyaena syriaca) remain widely distributed across Lebanon, as revealed from a compilation of sources ranging from newspapers, to oral and official ministerial reports.

Population density of striped hyenas in relation to habitat in a semi-arid landscape, western India

We used camera trapping in conjunction with a spatial explicit capture–recapture model to estimate striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena) density and occupancy models to investigate factors affecting striped
