Spatial ecology and conservation of tigers and their prey in the Central Terai Landscape, India
Remnant populations of the world’s ~3800 wild tigers (Panthera tigris) are generally small (< 20 adult individuals), subject to high rates of poaching, and confined to fragmented habitats with high levels of human disturbance. The species persistence requires an in-depth understanding of the suite of exogenous and endogenous factors that drive spatial heterogeneity in its occurrence and abundance. We intensively sampled tiger habitats in the populous 4500 km2 Central Terai Landscape along the India-Nepal border and investigated the following questions: (a) what is the relative influence of ...
