Leopard study featured in journal podcast

Journal of ZoologyEvery few months, the Journal of Zoology selects a few papers published in the journal and interviews the authors for a podcast. The latest podcast features one of our students, Ross Pitman, talking about his study of leopard predation (featured in an earlier blog entry). The paper was published in the journal in November 2012, and was based on his final-year project for the BSc Conservation Biology course. Ross co-wrote the paper with Lourens Swanepoel (University of Pretoria) and me. You can listen to the podcast here. The interview with Ross runs from about 27 minutes and 30 seconds into the podcast, and lasts around 11 minutes.
