Isolation of remnant forest patches, coupled with anthropogenic changes in the surrounding landscape, often leads to changes in the population density of forestdwelling mammals. At Pasoh Forest Reserve in Peninsular Malaysia, densities of native wild pigs (Sus scrofa) are 10–100 times greater than historical levels due to the local extinction of feline predators and the presence of abundant food sources in areas adjacent to the forest. Female pigs build reproductive nests out of understory… CONTINUE READING
