About this item

This book presents, for the first time, a collection of studies on the ecology of the rich and diverse large herbivore assemblages of South and Southeast Asia. Written by experts on herbivores of the region, it covers a comprehensive range of topics, including their evolutionary history, behaviour, nutrition, population ecology, patterns of diversity across environmental gradients, roles as seed dispersers and regulators of plant growth and community composition, and their conservation in the face of hunting and global change.
Large terrestrial mammalian herbivores play critical roles in ecosystems, serving as regulators of energy and nutrient cycles, modulators of plant community composition and grassland-woodland transitions, agents of seed dispersal, and as prey for large carnivores. Though large herbivores represent a prominent component of mammalian assemblages throughout South and Southeast Asia, today little is known about their roles in the regions’ ecosystems.
