Prey Animals

Are deer and wild boar populations big enough to feed more tigers?

What factors limit the population growth of deer and boar species? What is the resource use (habitat and diet) of different ungulates and is there any overlap in resource use? Do deer and boar have nutritional stress and how do they adjust their behaviour to heat stress and predation? What is the predation rate and can the density of deer and boar in Bardiya National park be calculated?
