Responses of hornbills and Ducula pigeons to hunting and disturbances to their habitats may help us understand the implications for the regeneration of their dependent tropical forest trees.

The present study tested the hypothesis that "game species are lost when forest areas are subjected to hunting and populations of already threatened species may become locally extinct from many forests of the Western Indian Himalaya". The study was designed to determine effects of vegetation structure and heterogeneity, and behaviour of animal species on their encounters in hunted and protected sites.

A survey of hunting and consumption of wild animals among the Sherpas community in and around Singhalila National Park was conducted. Rate and pattern of hunting of animal species, their importance to respondents, hunting techniques, and reasons for hunting were studied.

Hunting is the prime suspect in the global extinction of many species and is posing a major threat to populations of hundreds of species worldwide even in the absence of other forms of habitat destruction.This study was designed to investigate impact of wild ungulate offtakes on their populations in the forests in and around Chamba district of the Western Indian Himalaya.
