Abstract: Panthera pardus (leopard; Linnaeus, 1758) is the smallest of the 4 large felids in the genus Panthera. A solitary and adaptable species, P. pardus is the widest ranging of all wild felids, inhabiting rain forests, mountains, semiarid environments, and suburban areas throughout sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, and South Asia to the Russian Far East. Despite this distribution, P. pardus is listed as “Near Threatened” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural… Expand
Leopard (Panthera pardus) status, distribution, and the research efforts across its range
TLDR
It is found that while leopard research was increasing, research effort was primarily on the subspecies with the most remaining range whereas subspecies that are most in need of urgent attention were neglected. Expand
The current distribution and status of leopards Panthera pardus in China
Abstract The leopard Panthera pardus, categorized globally as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List, has the widest distribution of any wild felid species, although in Asia it has declinedExpand
Prey of the Persian Leopard (Panthera pardus saxicolor) in a mixed forest-steppe landscape in northeastern Iran (Mammalia: Felidae)
TLDR
The study provides the first illustration of the Persian Leopard's dietary composition in a temperate area with a relatively high diversity of available prey, and can be a baseline for future investigation and human-leopard interaction monitoring. Expand
Historical mitochondrial diversity in African leopards (Panthera pardus) revealed by archival museum specimens
TLDR
The utility of historical museum collections in understanding the processes that shape present biodiversity are emphasized, and mtDNA data indicates high levels of divergence among regional populations and strongly differentiated lineages in West Africa on par with recent studies of other large vertebrates. Expand
Spatial distribution and dietary niche breadth of the leopard Panthera pardus (Carnivora: Felidae) in the northeastern Himalayan region of Pakistan
TLDR
Results of the current study highlight that common leopard is mainly subsisting on domestic animals, which may result in negative human-leopard interactions and it is suggested that local communities should be educated to conserve the leopard and its wild prey species. Expand
Endangered leopards: Range collapse of the Indochinese leopard (Panthera pardus delacouri) in Southeast Asia
Abstract The Indochinese leopard (Panthera pardus delacouri) is a genetically distinct subspecies that historically occurred throughout mainland Southeast Asia, but might have experienced recentExpand
Systematics and paleobiology of Carnivora and Hyaenodonta from the lower Miocene of Buluk, Kenya
Early Miocene carnivorous mammals from Buluk, Kenya, are described and discussed. Four taxa belonging to Hyaeno­ donta and four belonging to Carnivora are identified. Members of Hyaenodonta includeExpand
Morphological variation and sexual dimorphism of the common leopard (Panthera pardus) in the Middle East and their implications for species taxonomy and conservation
TLDR
Inter-group variation of female skulls, presence of only four cranial variables which are significantly different between the groups in all skulls, and the lack of historical barriers for subspeciation may suggest the existence of one leopard subspecies in the Middle East. Expand
The role of small private game reserves in leopard Panthera pardus and other carnivore conservation in South Africa
Many large carnivores are declining globally; most threatened or risk extinction due to a loss of habitat, resources, and direct removal; often the later as a result of conflict with humans. AlthoughExpand
An adaptable but threatened big cat: density, diet and prey selection of the Indochinese leopard (Panthera pardus delacouri) in eastern Cambodia
TLDR
It is concluded that the Indochinese leopard is an important apex predator in SWS, but this unique population is declining at an alarming rate and will soon be eradicated unless effective protection is provided. Expand

Food Habits of Asiatic Leopards (Panthera pardus fusea) in Wolong Reserve, Sichuan, China
TLDR
Analysis of feces showed Asiatic leopards to consume a varied diet over a 7-year period, with Tufted deer replaced as the most frequent prey by bamboo rats. Expand
Reproductive ecology of the Persian Leopard, Panthera pardus saxicolor, in Sarigol National Park, northeastern Iran
TLDR
The surveys carried out between April 2005 and March 2008 in the Sarigol National Park, northeastern Iran, indicate that track size alone is not reliable for the accurate identification of leopard age/sex categories. Expand
Leopard food habits in the Lopé National Park, Gabon, Central Africa
TLDR
To determine leopard Panthera pardus (Linnaeus) food habits in the Lope National Park in Gabon, Central Africa, 196 leopard scats were collected and analysed and a minimum of 30 different prey species were identified, 27 of which were mammalian. Expand
Conservation genetics of the Far Eastern leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis).
TLDR
A molecular genetic survey of nuclear microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA sequence variation validates subspecies distinctiveness but also reveals a markedly reduced level of genetic variation, which indicates a critically diminished wild population under severe threat of extinction. Expand
Leopards in Western Turkey
TLDR
The leopard Panthera pardus tulliana survives in south-west Turkey, but after a two-month survey there, the author shows that numbers are so small and the people's attitudes so hostile that this subspecies is probably doomed to extinction. Expand
Big Cats in Situ. (Book Reviews: The African Leopard. Ecology and Behavior of a Solitary Felid.)
TLDR
Traditional studies of population, sex, age and composition, and more controversial topics, such as leopard hunting patterns, catch-of-kill behaviour and observed relationships with spotted hyenas, lions, wild dogs, cheetahs and humans are presented. Expand

The leopard (Panthera pardus) is a major predator of mammals within the rainforest ecosystem of West Africa. Most of the available information on leopard hunting behaviour comes from studiesExpand

TLDR
It is argued that solitary and secretive behaviour enables leopards to avoid the costs of defending carcasses against larger and gregarious carnivores. Expand

TLDR
Fecal samples collected from leopards, tigers, and leopard cats in Huai Kha Wildlife Sanctuary, Thailand were examined for parasite eggs, larvae, cysts, and oocysts by centrifugal sugar flotation and sedimentation techniques and ninety-six percent of all samples were positive. Expand
