Panthera Pardus, the Sympatric Species of Tiger, Census from 1976 in Corbett Tiger Reserve: A Study Based on Data Analysis of Three decades, Future Perspective, Ramnagar, Uttrakhand, India
Leopard (Panthera pardus) is an sympatric species of tiger (Panthera tigris). The morphological attributes of tiger are remarkable to enable the species for successful predation in nature.On the other hand the leopard is more fusible animal with environment and had adapted by all means even in human-dominated areas near the park & reserve forest. However, these source areas require ongoing managerial support and protection with improved field delivery. Being a territorial carnivore which inhabits metapopulation, connectivity is required between source and sink populations. In addition, such populations need to be connected with other source areas as well as through corridor for gene flow. As the Kosi corridor of Corbett is merely vanishing. So for genetic viability between two regions i.e. Corbett and Ramnagar forest division should be maintain by protecting the corridor through strict action against anthropogenic stress without political resolution. Present study depicts the leopard census of three decades of its wilderness in Corbett Tiger Reserve. A very honest work of census is required with the carrying capacity of that area with correlation of vital need are the some facts which have importance of reserves and parks.
