Predator–prey interaction can be crucial for studies in trophic-level ecology. Owing to their abundance and richness, many small arthropods, including the Orthoptera, are important prey in the ecosystem. Seventy scat samples from the common palm civet (Paradoxurus musangus) containing orthopteran parts (14.5%; n = 482) collected between May 2013 to May 2014 on Pulau Ubin, Singapore, were examined. From these scat samples, 12 orthopteran taxa were identified to genus or species level…

ECTOPARASITES OF THE COMMON PALM CIVET (PARADOXURUS HERMAPHRODITUS) AT SAKAERAT ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH STATION, THAILAND
TLDR
This study provides important data about parasites of wild carnivores in Thailand by studying the diversity and abundance of ectoparasites and blood parasites in seven common palm civets at Sakaerat Environmental Research Station in Northeast Thailand from February to November 2008.
Experimental study of avian predation on coexisting grasshopper populations (Orthoptera: Acrididae) in a sandhills grassland
TLDR
In general, avian predation significantly affected grasshopper populations in a sandhills grassland and the compensatory mortality hypothesis is not supported although other plausible hypotheses cannot be further evaluated with the present data.
First Velarifictorus (Orthoptera: Gryllidae, Gryllinae) cricket described from Borneo (Southeast Asia) and notes on a co-occurring congener
Based on newly collected specimens from Brunei, a new species of Velarifictorus Randell, 1964 is described: Velarifictorus temburongensis sp. nov. This represents the first species of the genus
Predation on Orthoptera and other orders in insects by tamarin monkeys, Saguinus mystax mystax and Saguinus fuscicollis nigrifrons (Primates: Callitrichidae), in north‐eastern Peru
TLDR
Based on preliminary data of captured prey, trends suggest that partitioning occurs regarding orthopterans as a limited food resource in moustached and saddle-back tamarins, which show a high overlap in their plant food resources.
Population density, spatiotemporal use and diet of the leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) in a human-modified succession forest landscape of Singapore
TLDR
Evidence is provided that leopard cats thrive in oil palm monocultures where they forage on murid prey where they were exclusively nocturnal in the monoculture area and exhibited diurnal activity in secondary forests.
High Potential of a Disturbance-Tolerant Frugivore, the Common Palm Civet Paradoxurus hermaphroditus (Viverridae), as a Seed Disperser for Large-Seeded Plants
TLDR
Molecular techniques are used to overcome the difficulty in differentiating between species with their feces samples, and the importance of civets as seed dispersers in the Tabin Wildlife Reserve in Sabah, Malaysia is evaluated.
A TAXONOMIC REVIEW OF COMMON BUT LITTLE KNOWN CRICKETS FROM SINGAPORE AND THE PHILIPPINES (INSECTA: ORTHOPTERA: ENEOPTERINAE)
TLDR
Two cricket species which are very common in Singapore but need formal description or systematic revision are studied, including both male and female genitalia and forewing venation, distribution, habitat and calling songs.
Dietary Shifts in Relation to Fruit Availability among Masked Palm Civets (Paguma larvata) in Central China
TLDR
To better understand how foraging behavior of civets varies with resource availability, similar studies should be conducted in tropical environments characterized by year-round availability of fruit.
Trends in new species discovery of Orthoptera (Insecta) from Southeast Asia.
TLDR
It is found that new species discoveries, relative to sampling, are fragmentary in Southeast Asia and changes with different time periods.
Notes on the Diet of the Malay Civet (Viverra tangalunga) and other Civets in Logged and Unlogged Lowland Dipterocarp Rain Forests in Sabah, Borneo
Civet diets were examined in a logged and unlogged Bornean rain forest. Malay civets (Viverra tangalunga) consumed invertebrates, fruit, rodents, insectivores, birds, snakes and lizards, and appear
