The dhole is obviously one of Johnsingh's favourite mammals as the book mentions it frequently. Here, a dhole crossing the Masinagudi-Moyar road near the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve in the Nilgiris,Tamil Nadu. Photo: By Special Arrangement

The elephant is considered an "umbrella species" because it plays a major role in the functioning of the ecosystem and provides opportunities for many species of plants and animals to survive. Here, elephants on the Munnar hills in Idukki district, Kerala. Photo: M. Srinath
