Diet of the crowned eagle (Stephanoaetus coronatus) in an urban landscape: potential for human-wildlife conflict?
TLDR
Time-lapse cameras were positioned at urban nest sites to identify the prey composition during breeding, particularly in regards to taxa with human associations, and it was found that domestic stock comprised 6 % of the identifiable prey. Expand

TLDR
It was found that the proportion of primates in the diet correlates with latitude: populations in equatorial latitudes have a higher proportion of monkeys in their diets, whereas further south antelopes are a much more common diet component. Expand
