Sept especes d'ongules sauvages qui habitent les prairies alpines du Yeniugou, Province de Qinghai (Chine) ont fait l'objet d'une recherche sur leurs preferences d'habitat et sur le recouvrement de leurs regimes alimentaires durant les etes 1990-92: la gazelle du Tibet (Procapra picticaudata), l'antilope du Tibet (Pantholops hodgsoni), le Kiang (Equus kiang), le cerf a levres blanches (Cervus albirostris), le yak (Poephagus mutus), le bharal (Pseudois nayaur) et l'argali (Ovis ammon). Les mâles…

Dietary Overlap of Przewalski's Gazelle, Tibetan Gazelle, and Tibetan Sheep on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau
TLDR
Reducing numbers of overwintering Tibetan domestic sheep on pastures to lessen survival pressure on the endangered gazelles during winters is suggested to help avoid food competition by occupying different foraging areas.
Dietary overlap of wild ungulate Cuvier�s gazelle with livestock (sheep and goats) in Djebel Messa�d Forest, Algeria
TLDR
The results of dietary overlap of Cuvier's gazelle (Gazella cuvieri) and two species of livestock to evaluate whether or not they compete for forage in Djebel Messaâd Forest, Algeria conclude that this gazellen exhibited a higher dietary diversity than livestock.
Distributional correlates of the Tibetan gazelle Procapra picticaudata in Ladakh, northern India: towards a recovery programme
Abstract The Tibetan gazelle Procapra picticaudata is on the verge of extinction in India with only c. 100 individuals remaining in the Hanle Valley of eastern Ladakh and Sikkim. Conservation
Coexistence of wild and domestic ungulates in the Nepalese Trans-Himalaya: Resource competition or habitat partitioning?
TLDR
Inferences regarding forage competition between domestic livestock and these two wild caprins need to be made from local, site-specific studies, rather than from general diet comparisons, due to differences in forage selection by argali and naur.
Summer diets of wild and domestic ungulates in Nepal Himalaya
TLDR
Inferences regarding forage competition between domestic livestock and these two wild caprins need to be made from local, site-specific studies, rather than from general diet comparisons, due to differences in forage selection by argali and naur.
Genetic diversity of the Tibetan antelope (Pantholops hodgsonii) population of Ladakh, India, its relationship with other populations and conservation implications
TLDR
The genetic variation of the Indian population of the Tibetan antelope is document for the first time, along with the extent of migration and its relationships with other populations of China, under the proposed transboundary agenda between India and China.
Decline of the Tibetan gazelle Procapra picticaudata in Ladakh, India
The Tibetan gazelle Procapra picticaudata is endemic to the Tibetan plateau. In the Ladakh region of northern India its range declined from c. 20,000 km2 in the early 1900s to c. 1,000 km2 in the
Dry season diets of sympatric ungulates in lowland Nepal: competition and facilitation in alluvial tall grasslands
TLDR
A conceptual model is proposed where the larger megaherbivores (rhino and elephant Elephas maximus) facilitate the smaller swamp deer and hog deer during the monsoonal growing season, while the smaller and more selective deer species outcompete the larger during the dry season when food is more limited.

TLDR
Fecal analysis appears to be a useful technique for studying deer diets in the arid Southwest and the utility of this technique for other areas and species is discussed as are sampling rates and suggestions for successful use of fecal analysis.
