Over 100 Years of Snow Leopard Research: A spatially explicit review of the state of knowledge in the snow leopard range
A large majority of snow leopard habitat, spanning over 12 range countries, remains under-researched, and critical knowledge gaps must be plugged for informed snow leopard conservation, according to a WWF report. The report titled, “Over 100 Years of Snow Leopard Research - A spatially explicit review of the state of knowledge in the snow leopard range” examines the current state of knowledge across their range. The report is based on an analysis of peer reviewed published papers on the species and its habitat. The report shows some glaring gaps in our knowledge of this elusive and threatened big cat, and highlights that lack of basic data could be hampering its conservation.
