Coexistence of meso-carnivores in human-dominated landscapes
In collaboration with the Centre for Ecological Sciences, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, the project aims to identify patterns of resource use and movement for all meso-carnivore species across a landscape mosaic using a combination of very high-resolution Earth observation data and advanced GPS telemetry. The project aims to determine the ecological parameters and behavioural strategies that enable the occurrence of the golden jackal, Indian fox and jungle cat in human-dominated systems. The data generated by the project allows researchers to model the fine-scaled movement strategies of meso-carnivores in modified landscapes, and determine the thresholds of tolerance to landscape change.
