In order to know the population structure and density, the line-transect sampling method were used. The overall individual density (no./km2) were chital (68), sambar (7.7), gaur (8.6), black napped hare (5.31), elephant (1.7 )and wild pig (3.0). the chital having a more density compare to other herbivores.The carnivores food habitat and human conflict also studied in the segur plateau.
