The chapters incorporated in the present Volume 5 of the book series Animal Diversity, Natural History and Conservation represents an extremely modest selection of several facts on the subject. The lead articles includes:
• Community Ecology and Taxonomy of Polychaetes in a Tropical Estuary
• Distribution of Nymphalid Butterflies (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) at Different Altitudinal Habitats
• A Taxonomic Review of the Genus Cyrtolabulus Van der Vecht, 1969
• Web Dynamics and Estimation of Capture Area of the Common Signature Spider, Argiope pulchella Thorell
• Morphology of Cyrtophora bidenta Tikader
• Effect of Insecticides on Spiders
• Eco-biology of the Endemic Fruit Fly Phorticella striata
• Breeding Biology and Mating Strategies of Coral Reef Shrimp Lysmata wurdemanni Gibbes
• Perspective on Fish Diversity
• DNA Fingerprinting in Conservational Research on Ichthyofauna
• Aspects of Dietary Tactics and Choices in Little Brown Doves (Streptopelia senegalensis senegalensis)
• In Situ and Ex Situ Conservation of Red Panda
• Habitat Characteristics and Foraging Ecology of Common Babbler, Turdoides caudatus caudatus
• Behavioural Ecology of Sloth Bear (Melursus ursinus Shaw 1791)
• Ecological Crisis vis-à-vis Intraspecific Conflict: A Case Study with Rhinos
• State of the Asian Elephant (Elephas maximus Linnaeus 1758) and its Habitat
It is hoped, this volume of the series shall be a useful resource of knowledge for the biologists, environmentalists, ecologists, conservationists and people of allied disciplines engaged in respective fields of research.
