We studied the genomes of African and Asian leopards using specimens from natural history museums.
If left unregulated, the unsustainable exploitation of leopards will have severe ecological and evolutionary costs.
A new way for leopard biologists to monitor this elusive and iconic species has been developed.
Wild leopards that live in an Indian city park like to dine on stray dogs, which new research says may help reduce the number of potentially deadly dog bites on people.
Instead of causing problems for farmers, carnivores could actually be beneficial by controlling rodent pests.
Sound wildlife management is incredibly important, and could enhance the conservation status of large carnivores like the leopard, which has recently been listed as a vulnerable species.
