Spatial and temporal analysis of leopards (Panthera pardus), their prey and tigers (Panthera tigris) in Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary, Thailand

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.

Diet and activity pattern of leopard in relation to prey in tropical forest ecosystem

Abstract Understanding the predator–prey relationship is essential for implementing effective conservation management practices on threatened species. Leopard is a threatened apex mammalian predator

Elusive cats in our backyards: persistence of the North Chinese leopard (Panthera pardus japonensis) in a human‐dominated landscape in central China

It is necessary to have joint efforts by the government and researchers to improve human disturbances management and prey species population density, as well as strengthen the investment in research on the North Chinese leopard, which could all further strengthen protection ability and ensure the long‐term survival of this species.

Spatiotemporal patterns of wolf, mesocarnivores and prey in a Mediterranean area

In a prey-rich community including an apex predator, three wild ungulates and several mesomammals, a substantial temporal overlap between wolves and wild boar, porcupines and mesocarnivores is detected and a negative temporal association between the predator and its main prey is detected.

Temporal activity patterns of North China leopards and their prey in response to moonlight and habitat factors

Abstract The nocturnal activities of predators and prey are influenced by several factors, including physiological adaptations, habitat quality and, we suspect, corresponds to changes in brightness

Spatio-temporal partitioning and coexistence between leopard (Panthera pardus fusca) and Asiatic lion (Panthera leo persica) in Gir protected area, Gujarat, India

It is concluded that site-specific spatial partitioning along with differential affinities for habitat is helping leopards to partition their spatio-temporal resources with lions and hence facilitate coexistence ofLeopards with lions in Gir forest.

Diet and prey selection of clouded leopards and tigers in Laos

Abstract In Southeast Asia, conservation of ‘Vulnerable’ clouded leopards (Neofelis nebulosa) and ‘Endangered’ tigers (Panthera tigris) might depend on the management of their preferred prey because

Inferring patterns of sympatry among large carnivores in Manas National Park – a prey‐rich habitat influenced by anthropogenic disturbances

Inferring the mechanisms that facilitate sympatry amongst large mammalian carnivores in anthropogenically altered habitats is critical if conservation initiatives aimed to recover populations are to



Distribution and abundance of Amur tiger, Amur leopard and their un- gulate prey in Hunchun National Nature Reserve, Jilin

Analysis of images from a moni- toring network of 83 camera traps deployed between April and June of 2013 indicated that tigers and sika deer were mainly restricted to the core zone of HNNR and that their abundance was lower in the community-based natural resource management.

Amur tigers and leopards returning to China: direct evidence and a landscape conservation plan

ContextThe Amur tiger and leopard, once roaming over the Eurasian continent, are now endangered and confined to the Sikhote-Alin Mountains, Russia—a landscape that has been increasingly fragmented

Behavioural correlates of predation by tiger (Panthera tigris), leopard (Panthera pardus) and dhole (Cuon alpinus) in Nagarahole, India

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.

On the Ecological Separation between Tigers and Leopards

Coexistence in Chitawan is facilitated by a large prey biomass, a larger proportion of the ungulate biomass in the small size classes, and by the dense vegetation structure, and some consequences of predator size and the role of interspecific dominance are discussed.

Responses of leopard Panthera pardus to the recovery of a tiger Panthera tigris population

Summary 1. Several conservation initiatives are aiming to improve the status of the rapidly dwindling populations of tiger Panthera tigris. However, possible cascading effects of intra-guild

Coexistence of the tiger and the common leopard in a prey-rich area: the role of prey partitioning

In the study area, apparently tigers and leopards did not base their coexistence on diet partitioning, suggesting a major role for spatial and/or temporal partitioning.

Crouching tigers, hidden prey: Sumatran tiger and prey populations in a tropical forest landscape

We examine the abundance and distribution of Sumatran tigers (Panthera tigris sumatrae) and nine prey species in Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park on Sumatra, Indonesia. Our study is the first to
