We are delighted to invite you to participate in the special talk “Spatial ecology and density of the Indochinese leopard (Panthera pardus delacouri) and its prey in Kaeng Krachan forest complex, Thailand” by Dr. Manoon Pliosungnoen, PhD. of the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF).

Our forest ecosystems have been decreasing day by day. Although we can notice the green in aerial photography, it's not always a perfect forest. Human activities, especially hunting of major wildlife species, have caused the decline of animal diversity in various forests in Southeast Asia.

The Indochinese tiger (Panthera tigris) is one of the top predators which is both directly and indirectly affected by human activities and has become extinct in many protected areas of Thailand. Like the tiger, the Indochinese leopard (Panthera pardus) is a large wild cat and plays an important role in the ecosystem. Even though the leopard is more adaptable and remains in greater numbers than the tiger, without serious and ongoing conservation measures, it will soon become extinct.

How Dr. Manoon Pliosungnoen’s research steps over the limit of traditional study on leopard’s population, what the answers of his research are, and what the best direction for the leopard’s conservation is when the area management must be based on research studies. Let’s find out these answers together in “The 4th Thailand International Symposium on Natural History Museums: Era of Ecosystem Restoration” during 21–22 December 2023.
