Thesis
Habitats dominated by humans and the concomitant fragmentation and conversion of primate habitats are the driving forces behind human-primate conflict interactions, posing one of the greatest threats to primate survival. I investigated the behavioral and ecological adaptability of Central Himalayan Langurs (CHL) (Semnopithecus schistaceus) living i...

Crop-foraging by primates is a rapidly growing concern. Effective mitigation strategies are urgently required to resolve this issue. In the Garhwal Himalayas, local people's high dependency on forest resources is a major cause of habitat loss, which paves the way for human-primate interactions in this area. To investigate the socioeconomic factors...

A new pinworm species, Enterobius (Colobenterobius) emodensis sp. n. (Nematoda: Oxyuridae) is described from the Central Himalayan langur, Semnopithecus schistaceus, in Mandal Valley, Chamoli District, Uttarakhand, India, based on mature and immature adults and fourth-stage larvae. This species closely resembles Enterobius (Colobenterobius) zakiri...

One aspect of interspecific feeding associations is gleaning, or the acquisition of food resources by one species eating items that incidentally drop to the ground by another species while feeding. Gleaning is a widespread phenomenon between primates and ungulates, but primate-carnivore gleaning associations are extremely rare in the literature. Wh...

The Wildlife Trust of India has taken a long term responsibility to identify a suitable habitat for the threatened families of Eastern Hoolock Gibbon from a village called Dello in Arunachal Pradesh to a nearby forested area which was the earlier home of this species. There is an ongoing successful rescue and translocation programme since November,...

Project
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.
Project
1- To evaluate the hunting pressure on the local wildlife and collect baseline data on the species hunted in the region. 2- To understand the species utilisation in cultural activities and bushmeat, and to quantify its value. 3- To integrate indigenous tribal knowledge with current conservation strategies into the creation of an effective and sustainable management proposal of hunting in the area. 4- To conduct a socio-economic survey of the community to know how economic status influences the Apatanis‟ hunting patterns and practices. 5- A produce a brief documentary on “Indigenous hunting practices and cultural uses of animals in cultural festivals”
