ENDANGERED PERSIAN LEOPARD 2 Abstract The major reason behind this study was to gather data on the status of the Persian panther well known as the Panthera pardus saxicolorin , in Iran, to make an evaluation of the populace size, and to recognize the purposes behind the decay of the species in this nation. The outcomes demonstrate that there exist a quantity of 1.87 +/– SE 0.07 panthers every 100 km2, 56% of which live in secured ranges.

ENDANGERED PERSIAN LEOPARD 3 Introduction A. Leopards Panthera pardus, are broadly dispersed crosswise over southern Asia and sub-Saharan part of Africa. Iranian Leopards are exceptionally variable in size and tinge: both substantial and pale examples and also light and dim examples are found in distinctive areas (Taghdisi et al. 2013, p. 556). NOWELL & JACKSON (1996) perceive three subspecies found on the domain of Iran: P. p. saxicolor Pocock 1927, P. p. dathei Zukowsky 1964, and P. p. ciscaucasica Satunin 1964. I. Panthera Pardus Saxicolor Panthers or rather leopards were doubtlessly dispersed once over the entire Caucasus, with the exception of steppe territories. Studies directed somewhere around 2001 and 2005 affirmed that there are no more panthers in the western piece of the Greater Caucasus, and that they survived just at a couple of locales in the eastern part. The biggest populaces make due in Iran. The estimation which was a rough estimation of the present populace of the Persian Leopard in zones other than the nine better considered territories was acquired by unverified data and was provided by neighborhood individuals. These estimations are partitioned into gatherings in light of scope or latitude of 34°N and longitude 56°E. Currently, it is true that Leopards are more plenteous in the north contrasted with the south (Taghdisi et al. 2013, p. 559), and more plentiful in the west contrasted with the east. As it were, more Leopards live in the north and northwest than in the south and southeast.

ENDANGERED PERSIAN LEOPARD 4 Panthera Pardus saxicolor stay away from deserts, ranges with long-span snow spread and regions that are close to urban improvement. Their habitat comprises of subalpine knolls, broadleaf timberlands and tough gorges from 600 to 3,800 m that is, 2,000 to 12,500 ft. in the Greater Caucasus, and rough inclines, mountain steppes, and scanty juniper woods in the Lesser Caucasus and Iran (Taghdisi et al. 2013, p. 561). Just some little and disconnected populaces stay in the entire eco-region. Suitable habitat in every range nation is constrained and regularly

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
