Abstract or Summary
  • Populations of Western Tragopans Tragopan melanocephalus were studied at two areas (Machiara and Salkhala) in the Neelum Valley of northeastern Pakistan. A total of 130 sightings of birds was noted during the breeding seasons in 1982 and 1983, but only 100 were re-located for vegetation analysis. More sightings of birds were recorded at Machiara; 54% of the locations were in an oak stand. Contrastingly, 63% of the sightings were in a maple stand at Salkhala. The remaining birds were found in mixed and deciduous stands. Only 30% of locations of tragopans were in coniferous stands at Machiara and none at Salkhala. There was little selection at the stand level. Structural components were the most important aspects of tragopan habitat and both sexes were associated strongly with shorter life-forms (shrub, short deciduous, short coniferous) at each study area. There was no association with particular plant species.
