Conservation status of tigers in a primary rainforest of Peninsular Malaysia

K KAWANISHI
2004 Biological Conservation  
Complete isolation of the Krau Wildlife Reserve, the second largest protected area in Peninsular Malaysia, from GTNL is evident after 30 years of land conversion of the intervening forest.  ...  Two fecal samples and a kill suggested that the sun bear was a potential prey species of tigers. The sun bear was relatively abundant and wide spread in Taman Negara.  ...
