The study was conducted in Pakke Tiger Reserve (PTR), East Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh. The objectives of the study were to (a) estimate the abundance and population status of large sympatric carnivores such as tigers, leopards and Asiatic wild dogs, (b) assess the prey availability, group size and sex of major prey species, (c) examine the prey selection and food habits of the large carnivores, (d) determine the factors governing coexistence of large sympatric carnivores and (e) assess the socio-economic status of local communities and the human – wildlife conflict in and around the Pakke Tiger Reserve (PTR). The thesis addresses the following four key questions ; (a) what is the population status of tigers, leopards and wild dogs in the Pakke Tiger Reserve ? (b) knowing that these species differ in their behavior do they exhibit any specific food preferences ? (c) what are the key factors that determine occurrence of the above mentioned large carnivore in Pakke Tiger Reserve ?
