Abstract. [] Key Method The method in this study is qualitative to determine the total population and distribution. Data collection techniques were carried out by sign surveys (burrow, footprints, quills, food sites, and feces), camera traps, and semi-structured interviews. The result shows the number of porcupine populations in the designated area of Cisokan Hydropower is 6-29 individuals. Porcupine population is distributed in five regions, namely the first region consisting of Pasir Gagak, Cigintung, Batu…

Habitat of mammals in West Java, Indonesia
The habitat types that are most commonly found in mammal species in West Java are revealed to reveal the habitat types used by mammals to fulfill their daily needs.
Animal utilization based on local knowledge in Ciletuh Geopark, Ciemas Subdistrict, Sukabumi, West Java, Indonesia
The number of species that are used, distribution of local knowledge about animals using, and the dependency of communities on creatures in Ciletuh Geopark, Ciemas Subdistrict, Sukabumi are investigated.
Mammalian diversity in West Java, Indonesia
The results presented here may facilitate improvements in the mammalian diversity database, especially in the non-conservation area, and the species that are always found in studies of mammalian diversity in West Java.
The illegal hunting and exploitation of porcupines for meat and medicine in Indonesia
Indonesia is home to five species of porcupines, three of which are island endemics. While all five species are currently assessed as Least Concern by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, impacts
Morphological and Histological Studies on the Epididymis and Deferent Duct of the Sunda Porcupine (Hystrix javanica)
In the epididymis and deferent duct of Sunda porcupines, PAS-positive principal cells were shown, and the immunoreactivities for 3β-HSD were found in the epithelium of thedeferent ducts, which suggest effects on sperm by glycoproteins and steroid metabolites.
Body measurements correlation and x-ray imaging of three Hystrix javanica fetuses in different fetal development stages
There was a specific hair pattern in different fetal stage of Hystrix javanica that was hairless, smooth hairs, and smooth hairs with dense-non dense pattern and all body measurements have positive correlation with body volume and body weight and x-ray analysis shown that the ossification of the bone was started to happen while the smooth hair was growth.
Analysis of the Structure and Ecological Function of an Extreme Landscape in a Tropical Region of West Java, Indonesia
An extreme landscape is a spatially heterogeneous area with unusual topography that is prone to natural disasters but still exhibits interrelated structures and functions. One of the important
Does the Presence of Shade Trees and Distance to the Forest Affect Detection Rates of Terrestrial Vertebrates in Coffee Home Gardens?
Complex agroforestry systems can host similar biodiversity levels to adjacent continuous forests and can offer important ecosystem services for wildlife. Species inhabiting adjacent forests, as well


Notes on Southeast Asian Porcupines (Hystricidae, Rodentia). IV. On the taxonomy of the subgenus Acanthion F. Cuvier, 1823 with notes on the other taxa of the family
Evidence is presented for the point of view that the generic status of Thecurus Lyon, 1907 has been based on quite insufficient arguments, and this taxon is not accorded a higher rank than that of a subgenus.
SUMMARY The pest status, biology and control of porcupines (genus Hystrix) are reviewed with special reference to H. indica as a forest pest in Pakistan. In irrigated forests porcupines damage trees

Perceptions on Captive Malayan Porcupine (Hystrix brachyura) Meat by Malaysian Urban Consumers.
The objective of this study is to investigate the acceptance and purchasing behaviours of Malaysian consumers for captive bred Malayan porcupine (Hystrix brachyura) meat as an alternative meat
Home Range and Multiscale Habitat Selection of Threatened Thin-Spined Porcupine in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest
The home-range size and factors influencing habitat selection at landscape, home range, and tree scales in the cacao-growing region of southern Bahia were estimated and tagged porcupines preferred trees that were large, harboring many lianas, and closer to forest limits.
The ecological transformation of Singapore, 1819-1990
The majority of known native species can still be found in Singapore today, despite the fact that more than half the island is urbanized and less than 100 ha of primary rain forest survives.
Reproduction in captive female Cape porcupines (Hystrix africaeaustralis)
Captive females attained sexual maturity at an age of 9-16 months and conceived for the first time when 10-25 months old and reproduced throughout the year with most litters being produced between August and March.
Catastrophic extinctions follow deforestation in Singapore
Extrapolations of the observed and inferred local extinction data imply that the current unprecedented rate of habitat destruction in Southeast Asia will result in the loss of 13–42% of regional populations over the next century, at least half of which will represent global species extinctions.
Hystrix africaeaustralis
The species Hystrix cristata Linnaeus, 1758, is defined by Linnaean tautonomy (International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature 1922) as follows:.
