The social structure of Goitred gazelles (Gazella subgutturosa) in Xinjiang Province was studied over a two-year period (2005-2007).
Key words: China, Gazella subgutturosa, group size, social structure, goitred gazelle.
The natural habitat of the Goitred gazelle is vast compared to any other gazelle species, ranging from the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula, through Iran, Afghanistan, and the spacious arid regions of Middle Asia, to the deserts of northwestern China and Mongolia.
Some researchers in past studies of Goitred gazelles in Middle Asia (Mambetzhumaev, 1970; Sludsky, 1956; Zhevnerov, 1984) did not give special consideration to this subject, though they described some elements of group composition.
