Descriptif
This study was developed for a better understanding of the ecology and behaviour of the species and also ; provides a better understanding of the correlation between density, food availability and sociability. The study was carried out, in Kutch district of Gujarat state, for five years from January 2006 to January 2011. The semi-arid landscapes of Kutch, in North-western India appears to be the stronghold of the species(Jhala 2002), providing a scope for better understanding of the ecology and behaviour of the hyena in Indian subcontinent. This will add crucial information to the already existing information on striped hyaenas, helping in drawing meaningful conclusions on their ecology and evolution and also in conservation planning and management in the region. In consequence of unanticipated technical issue (faulty camera traps) in the course of the project, the methodological approach had to be altered with the original plan.
