The Jungle Cat Felis chaus is widespread in India and neighbouring countries but is known by only one historical specimen from Cambodia, Laos or Vietnam (Indochina), widely published as from Vietnam, but in fact from Cambodia. All but two of the recent Indochinese records come from extensive natural lowland habitat dominated by deciduous dipterocarp forest in northeast Cambodia. The species probably occurred more widely in Indochina, largely through additional use of secondary habitats, where… Expand

CONSERVATION STATUS OF SMALL ASIAN MONGOOSE HERPESTES JAVANICUS (É. GEOFFROY SAINT-HILAIRE, 1818) (MAMMALIA: CARNIVORA: HERPESTIDAE) IN LAO PDR
TLDR
It remains unclear whether the species inhabits the extensive hill and mountain ranges of Lao PDR, and while populations may be much below carrying capacity, the paucity of records does not refl ect a cause for conservation concern. Expand
The Indochinese Silvered Leaf Monkey Trachypithecus germaini (Sensu lato) in Lao PDR
Abstract: The Indochinese silvered leaf monkey Trachypithecus germaini (perhaps comprising two species, T. germaini [sensu stricto] and T. margarita) is probably the rarest and most threatenedExpand

Small cats in big trouble? Diet, activity, and habitat use of jungle cats and leopard cats in threatened dry deciduous forests, Cambodia
TLDR
It is confirmed that jungle cats are DDF specialists that likely persist in low numbers due to the harsh conditions of the dry season in this habitat, including annual fires and substantial decreases in small vertebrate prey. Expand
Ecology and conservation of two endangered subspecies of the leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) on Japanese islands
TLDR
This work will compare the ecology and state of these two wild felids in Japan, discuss the different conservational situations in relation to felid ecology and human society, and compare the threats facing these two felids. Expand

– The northern and eastern plains of Cambodia support one of the largest extents of lowland deciduous forest in South-east Asia and are globally signifi cant for mammal conservation. Between Dec.2008Expand
Diet and habitat selection of the leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis borneoensis) in an agricultural landscape in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo
TLDR
It is suggested that the significantly higher use of oil palm by leopard cats is related to their preference for areas with high prey ‘catchability’ rather than high prey density. Expand

Status and Conservation of Douc Langurs (Pygathrix nemaeus) in Laos
TLDR
Douc langurs are threatened in Laos by habitat fragmentation increasing their vulnerability to the existing high hunting levels, and Protective measures should center around implementing habitat conservation and antihunting measures in the recently-declared National Biodiversity Conservation Areas.

Biological Basis of Saki (Pithecia) Folk Species Recognized by the Matses Indians of Amazonian Perú
TLDR
Molecular and morphological analyses of the collected material indicate that both Matses folk species correspond to one effectively panmictic population of Pithecia monachus, providing the first quantitative analyses of local (within-population) morphological and molecular variation in this little-known platyrrhine genus. Expand
The conservation status of birds in Laos: a review of key species
TLDR
The status of all Lao species reported to be of elevated conservation concern (key species) in any of the following categories: Globally Threatened or Globally Near-Threatened, and At Risk or Rare in Thailand, are reviewed. Expand
Wild Cats – Status Survey and Conservation Action Plan
  • G. Hughes
  • Biology
  • Biodiversity & Conservation

TLDR
The 1972 publication became the bible of the then relatively few devotees of Madagascar, and this new book expands and expands knowledge in many key areas, including cultural anthropology, thanks to a multi-disciplinary approach made possible by modern techniques. Expand
On the origin of faeces: morphological versus molecular methods for surveying rare carnivores from their scats
TLDR
It is shown that expert naturalists fail reliably to distinguish pine marten Martes martes faeces (‘scats’) from those of foxes Vulpes vulpes, and recommended that in the future, a multi-evidence approach should be adopted to monitor elusive mammals, involving DNA methods, cast hair identification, camera traps, and non-leading ‘sighting’ questionaires.
