The objective of this study is to understand the sleeping site preference in a habituated population of Central Himalayan Langur (Semnopithecus schistaceus) and understand the choice of sleeping tree species fashioned by the change in weather conditions, from wet to dry during the months of August to December, as well as other ecological constraints like parasite avoidance, predation avoidance, and social dynamics. Such a study shall provide the necessary insight into exploring the socio-ecology of the virtually unknown Central Himalayan Langur species.
