  • The Javan Leopard Panthera pardus melas (Cuvier, 1809) (Mammalia:
           Carnivora: Felidae) in West Java, Indonesia: estimating population density
           and occupancy

    • Authors: Anton Ario, Senjaya Mercusiana, Ayi Rustiadi, Robi Gumilang, I Gede Gelgel Darma Putra Wirawan, Toni Ahmad Slamet
      Pages: 21331 - 21346
      Abstract: The Javan Leopard is endemic to the Indonesian island of Java and has been classified as Endangered. Reliable information about its population status, distribution, and density is lacking but are essential to guide conservation efforts and provide a benchmark for management decisions. Our study represents the first empirical density and occupancy estimates for the Leopard in West Java and provides baseline data for this region. We used camera trap data collected from February 2009 to October 2018 in six study areas comprising a sampling effort of 10,955 camera trap days in a total area of 793.5 km2. We identified 55 individual Leopards in these areas and estimated Leopard density using spatially explicit capture-recapture. Population density estimates range from 4.9 individuals/100 km2 in Gunung Guntur-Papandayan Nature Reserve to 16.04 individuals/100 km2 in Gunung Gede Pangrango National Park. Latter is among the globally highest Leopard densities. Based on detection data, we modelled single-season Leopard occupancy using three sampling covariates and eight site covariates. Modelling revealed that the two covariates forest cover and presence of Wild Boar are the strongest predictors for Leopard occupancy in our study areas. We recommend assessing and monitoring Leopard distribution, density and occupancy in other areas of Java and emphasize that a landscape approach for conservation of the Javan Leopard is imperative.

  • Breeding phenology and population dynamics of the endangered Forest Spiny
           Reed Frog Afrixalus sylvaticus Schiøtz, 1974 in Shimba Hills, Kenya

    • Authors: Alfayo Koskei, George Eshiamwata, Bernard Kirui, Phylus K. Cheruiyot
      Pages: 21347 - 21355
      Abstract: Afrixalus sylvaticus Schiøtz, 1974 is a species of hyperoliid frog inhabiting coastal forest Kenya. It is classified as endangered under IUCN B2ab(iii) ver 3.1 and occurs in the Shimba Hills National Park and hinterlands. Habitat loss and other human activities are threatening the species. Therefore, understanding the breeding ecology and population dynamics is important for its conservation. This study assessed the breeding ecology and population dynamics of the species in the protected and community landscapes in Shimba Hills National Reserve in Kenya. Data was collected through ecological surveys conducted from June 2016 to July 2017 using a visual encounter surveys (VES) method. The results show that the species was more abundant during the wet season than dry (58% and 42%, respectively). The population estimate was 192 individuals and a density of 0.98 individuals/km2. Regarding the morphology, the mean snout-vent length (SVL) for males was 15.12 mm and females 15.96 mm, but there was no significant difference (t-test = 0.87, p = 0.390, df = 39). The mean weight of both gravid and non-gravid females was 6.05 g and males was 4.82 g. The weights were statistically different between both sexes (t-test = 3.50, p-value = 0.001, df = 39). The sex ratio was 1:2 (male: female). There was more activity in the wet season (April and May), and the breeding habitats were reeds and water lilies. The threats identified to their habitat include; human activities such as bush burning, livestock grazing, drainage, and plantation of exotic tree species (Eucalyptus sp.) that have led to habitat loss and degradation. The study recommends that the reforestation processes such as plantation of exotic species such as Eucalyptus sp. and Casuarina sp. and bush burning in the wetlands and species habitats must be discouraged among the stakeholders (community and park management). Moreover, more synchronized studies are necessary to highlight the driver(s) of imbalanced sex ratios and species habitat shifts.

  • Ichthyofaunal diversity of Senkhi stream, Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh: a
           comparative status between 2004–05 and 2018–19

    • Authors: Koj Taro, Lakpa Tamang, D.N. Das
      Pages: 21356 - 21367
      Abstract: An investigation was conducted during 2018–19 after a time span of 13 years in the Senkhi stream, an important hill stream that flows through western corner of the capital city, Itanagar. The present study aims to compare decadal changes in ichthyofaunal diversity, status, and abundance with reference to the impact of increasing urbanization in the capital city. The ichthyofaunal diversity assessed presently is restricted to 37 species spreading over 30 genera under 13 families which include four species more, not reported in the past. Thus, of the 37 species recorded, 33 species only could be compared, and noticeably resulted ultimate reduction of 14 species belonging to 11 genera under 10 families from the study area. It indicated that nearly 64% decline in fish abundance within stream zone under urban area and about 46% reduction in undisturbed area. The present study hitherto revealed the alarming rate of decline in fish diversity and also unfolded key factors responsible for crucial decline of fish diversity along with the possible mitigation measures.

  • First record of Proceratium Roger, 1863, Zasphinctus Wheeler, 1918, and
           Vollenhovia Mayr, 1865 (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) from the Western Ghats of
           peninsular India, description of three new species, and implications for
           Indian biogeography

      Pages: 21368 - 21387
      Abstract: Three new ant species from the genera Proceratium Roger, 1863, Zasphinctus Wheeler, 1918, and Vollenhovia Mayr, 1865 are described from the Western Ghats of southern India. This is the first report of Proceratium and Zasphinctus from peninsular India and the first record of Vollenhovia from the Western Ghats mountain range proper. Proceratium gibbosum sp. nov. is described from Periyar Tiger Reserve in Kerala, being the first record of the stictum species group from the Indian subcontinent; it differs from other members of the stictum group by the mesonotum bearing a prominent rounded dorsal hump (tumulus) and petiole devoid of ventral tooth. The first record of the genus Zasphinctus Wheeler, 1918 from the Indian region is also presented here, with a description of a new species. Zasphinctus sahyadriensis sp. nov. differs from all known Afrotropical and Asian Zasphinctus by a combination of characters including clypeal area with single median tooth, occipital margin being regular in outline, and head sculpture sparsely punctate. The occurrence of the genus Vollenhovia Mayr, 1865 is confirmed from peninsular India, with the description of the female castes of Vollenhovia keralensis sp. nov. We provide ecological notes on these new taxa. In addition, separate identification keys based on the worker caste are also presented to Indo-Malayan species of Proceratium, Afrotropical-Indomalayan species of Zasphinctus, and Vollenhovia of the Indian subcontinent. The biogeographical implications of the presence of these three genera are also discussed in relation to plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent.

  • New queen' Evidence of a long-living Jaguar Panthera onca (Mammalia:
           Carnivora: Felidae) in Tikal National Park, Guatemala

    • Authors: Carlos A. Gaitán, Manolo J. García, M. André Sandoval-Lemus, Vivian R. González-Castillo, Gerber D. Guzmán-Flores, Cristel M. Pineda
      Pages: 21388 - 21395
      Abstract: Despite the abundant literature on the Jaguar Panthera onca, several aspects of its natural history and ecology such as longevity and residency of wild individuals are still little studied and poorly known. We conducted a camera trapping study in Tikal National Park, Guatemala, during the dry season and early rainy season from April to July 2018. We compared our results with results of previous studies and thereby came across a presumably female adult individual that was recorded in 2009 and again during our survey. We therefore assume that this virtual female is a potential long-term resident Jaguar in this core zone of the Selva Maya, one of the largest and well-conserved forests in the Neotropics and a priority area for the conservation of this species. We recommend implementing systematic and long-termed studies in Guatemala as a tool for the evaluation and management of the species, and to monitor the effectiveness of protected and priority areas in order to ensure the conservation of the Jaguar.

  • First camera trap record of Striped Hyena Hyaena hyaena (Linnaeus, 1758)
           (Mammalia: Carnivora: Hyaenidae) in Parsa National Park, Nepal

    • Authors: Pramod Raj Regmi, Madhu Chetri, Haribhadra Acharya, Prakash Sigdel, Dipendra Adhikari, Naresh Subedi, Babu Ram Lamichhane
      Pages: 21396 - 21401
      Abstract: The Striped Hyena occurs in the Tarai and midhill regions of Nepal, where limited information is available on species distribution. A camera trap survey was conducted in Parsa National Park in 2016 (Feb–May) and 2016–2017 (Nov–Feb) to monitor tigers at 158 locations for 21 days (6,615 trap efforts in total). This study successfully captured the 15 hyena images in 5 grids of eastern part (named as extension area) of national park. A total of 17 mammal species were captured simultaneously in hyena captured grid during the survey period. The presence of hyenas in Parsa National Park indicates the collective efforts of the government, conservation organizations and local communities in hyena conservation. A detailed ecological study of this species has been recommended for designing hyena conservation plan in the region.

  • Range extension and new ecoregion records of the Crocodile Monitor Varanus
           salvadorii (Peters & Doria, 1878) (Reptilia: Varanidae) in Papua New

    • Authors: Borja Reh, Jim Thomas
      Pages: 21402 - 21408
      Abstract: The Crocodile Monitor Varanus salvadorii is one of the longest lizards and an apex predator in New Guinea. Limited information is available on its ecology and distribution, mainly due to its arboreal lifestyle and preference for inaccessible primary forest habitats. Here we provide the first published record, using camera trapping technology in the Torricelli Mountain Range, of V. salvadorii living at a higher elevation than previously recorded in montane rainforest habitat. This range extension implies the occupation of a distinctive ecoregion for the species: the Northern New Guinea Montane Forest, a substantially cooler region from the formerly known distribution area. We present trail camera images of an active animal at an elevation of 1,500 m & at 18oC temperature and we discuss the implications of this finding for understanding the behaviour & conservation of the Crocodile Monitor.

  • A checklist of fish and shellfishes of the Poonthura estuary, southwestern
           coast of India

    • Authors: Kiranya Bella, Pramila Sahadevan, Giri Bhavan Sreekanth, Rajeev Raghavan
      Pages: 21409 - 21420
      Abstract: A systematic checklist of fish and shellfishes of the Poonthura estuary, Kerala, India is provided including notes on their conservation status. This checklist includes 66 finfish and five shellfish, belonging to 17 orders, 35 families, and 60 genera. Carangiformes is the richest order (11 species, eight genera, and three families), representing 15.4% of the total fish diversity. Carangidae, is the most diverse family with nine representatives, contributing to 12.6% of the total fish diversity. Following the IUCN Red List Categories, of the total 69 species (excluding both exotic and transplanted fish species), 59 belong to the ‘Least Concern’, while one species Pampus argenteus is listed as ‘Vulnerable’, four are ‘Data Deficient’ (Megalops cyprinoides, Arius maculatus, Cynoglossus semifasciatus, and Epinephelus tauvina) and five are ‘Not Evaluated’ (Nuchequula blochii, Channa pseudomarulius, Penaeus indicus, P. monodon, and Scylla serrata). Around 94% of the recorded fish fauna have commercial value and contribute to subsistence fisheries throughout the year. Taxonomy and diversity of fish fauna of least studied or isolated estuarine ecosystems should be updated with proper documentation of their conservation status, in order to design and implement pragmatic management and conservation programs.

  • A survey of ethno-medicinally important tree species in Nauradehi Wildlife
           Sanctuary, central India

    • Authors: Tinku Kumar, Akash Kumar, Amit Jugnu Bishwas, Pramod Kumar Khare
      Pages: 21442 - 21448
      Abstract: The study was carried out in Nauradehi Wildlife Sanctuary, central India. The forest is classified as a tropical dry deciduous type, with teak Tectona grandis as the predominant species. Extensive field trips were carried out during 2018–2020 to document the medicinally important tree species. The medicinal importance of these plants was recorded through interviews, group discussions with local tribal communities and on the basis of the literature available. Enumeration of tree species in this area showed occurrence of 50 tree species belonging to 37 genera and 21 families. The study further observed that several species were being used as traditional medicine by the local tribal folks, traditional healers in the study area, and also by pharmaceutical industries. The study observed that some species in the sanctuary were rare due to several developmental projects, forest destruction, and over-exploitation. The study provides details about the botanical identity, family, local name, plant parts utilised and uses for treatment of diseases. The present paper identified the tree species for their conservation status and accordingly recommends the priority for their conservation in the study area. We recommend that tree species documentation might be helpful for drug formulation and the preservation of traditional knowledge.

  • A new southern distribution record for Pacific Marten Martes caurina

    • Authors: Maximilian L. Allen, Brianne Kenny, Benjamin Crawford, Morgan J. Farmer
      Pages: 21470 - 21472
      Abstract: ThePacific Marten is a mesocarnivore that is native to western North America, with a distribution that ranges from the boreal forests of southern British Columbia to the southern terminus of the Rocky Mountains in north-central New Mexico. Martens are considered a state-threatened species in New Mexico, and the southern extent of their range is unclear. We documented a sighting of a Pacific Marten at 35.835, -105.750, north-east of Santa Fe that is farther south than any confirmed marten sighting since 1884. It is unknown if this sighting represents the documentation of a population or just a lone individual. It is unlikely that marten populations would extend much farther south, as this is near the southern terminus of the Rocky Mountains. However, a systematic survey to determine the distribution of this southern population would inform conservation of Pacific Martens within the state.
