Abstract

During present study, from 2004 to 2006 in Jammu district and 2006 to 2009 in Trikuta hills, the impact of urbanization on carnivores was studied. Order Carnivora is represented by 5 species. Their local and national/global status was also determined. It was also found that urbanization is taking
place by leaps and bounds which has affected wildlife of the area most by habitat destruction, habitat fragmentation and noise. It has been found that the most effected order in the mammals is carnivora, because of the requirement of the larger habitat for fulfilling their needs.

Key words: Trikuta hills; Carnivore; Urbanization; Shivaliks; Habitat fragmentation
