Diet ecology of tigers and leopards in Chhattisgarh, central India
TLDR
Developing some strong protection framework and careful implementation of the ungulate augmentation can bring a fruitful result to hold viable populations of tiger and leopard and secure their long term survival in the present study areas in central India, Chhattisgarh. Expand
Prey selection, food habits and dietary overlap between leopard Panthera pardus (Mammalia: Carnivora) and re-introduced tiger Panthera tigris (Mammalia: Carnivora) in a semi-arid forest of Sariska Tiger Reserve, Western India
TLDR
Both the predator utilized and preferred prey species in similar way, though there was difference in selection of prey speciesIn terms of sex and age class as observed by kill records, the results suggested considerable overlap between the two carnivores along diet axis. 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
Status of leopard Panthera pardus and striped hyena Hyaena hyaena and their prey in Achanakmar Tiger Reserve, Central India
To understand the multi-predator ecosystem and their prey, the present study assessed status of leopard (Panthera pardus) and striped hyena (Hyaena hyaena) (co-predators of tiger) and their preyExpand
Prey selection and food habits of the Tiger Panthera tigris (Mammalia: Carnivora: Felidae) in Kalakkad-Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve, southern Western Ghats, India
TLDR
This study is the first scientific information on prey selection of the Tiger in KMTR landscape, which will serve as a baseline for its conservation planning and management. Expand
Factors influencing the distribution of leopard in a semiarid landscape of Western India
Previously, factors governing distribution of leopard (Panthera pardus fusca) in forest habitats of the Indian subcontinent were unknown. The present study assessed the influence of differentExpand
Prey selection and food habits of three sympatric large carnivores in a tropical lowland forest of the Eastern Himalayan Biodiversity Hotspot
TLDR
This study provides the first reliable information on prey selection and food habits of sympatric large carnivores in a protected area of Eastern Himalayan tropical rainforest. Expand
Are there sufficient prey and protected areas in Nepal to sustain an increasing tiger population? A comment by Digpal Singh Gour
TLDR
The study on the Nepal survey report concluded the insufficiency of the size of current protected areas and prey biomass to sustain the projected population size of 250 tigers within the current protected area network in Nepal. Expand
Ramifications of reproductive diseases on the recovery of the Sumatran Rhinoceros Dicerorhinus sumatrensis (Mammalia: Perissodactyla: Rhinocerotidae)
TLDR
Evidence presented here indicates that reproductive failure has also been a significant cause of loss, and continues to affect wild populations, and that the success of efforts to build a viable captive population will depend upon utilizing fertile animals and applying assisted reproductive techniques. Expand
Spatial and temporal analysis of leopards (Panthera pardus), their prey and tigers (Panthera tigris) in Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary, Thailand
TLDR
This is the first study in Southeast Asia to quantify spatial and temporal interactions between the leopard, its primary ungulate prey, and the tiger and provides new insights for conserving this declining subspecies. Expand

Diet and prey profiles of three sympatric large carnivores in Bandipur Tiger Reserve, India
TLDR
The prediction that abundance of ungulate prey species, as well as their availability in different size classes, are both critical factors that facilitate sympatry among the three predators are supported. Expand
Behavioural correlates of predation by tiger (Panthera tigris), leopard (Panthera pardus) and dhole (Cuon alpinus) in Nagarahole, India
TLDR
The results suggest that ecological factors, such as adequate availability of appropriate-sized prey, dense cover and high tree densities may be the primary factors in structuring the predator communities of tropical forests. Expand
prey selection by tiger, leopard and dhole in tropical forests
TLDR
It is suggested that if there is choice, large carnivores selectively kill larger prey, and non-selective predation patterns reported from other tropical forests may be the result of scarcity of large prey. Expand

Diet, prey selection and ecological relations of leopard and golden cat in the Ituri Forest, Zaire
TLDR
Diets of leopard and African golden cat were studied in the Ituri Forest of Zaire by means of scat contents and prey carcass finds to show that felid predation is selective for five species of nocturnal ungulates and one species of diurnal, terrestrial primate. Expand
