Habitat utilization and feeding biology of Himalayan Grey Langur ( Semnopithecus entellus ajex
studied from April, 2006 to April, 2007 in Machiara National Park, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan. The results
showed that in the winter season the most preferred habitat of the langurs was the moist temperate coniferous forests
interspersed with deciduous trees, while in the summer season they preferred to migrate into the subalpine scrub forests at
higher altitudes. Langurs were folivorous in feeding habit, recorded as consuming more than 49 plant species (27 in
summer and 22 in winter) in the study area. The mature leaves (36.12%) were preferred over the young leaves (27.27%)
while other food components comprised of fruits (17.00%), roots (9.45%), barks (6.69%), flowers (2.19%) and stems
(1.28%) of various plant species.
