Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The goral (Naemorhedus) is sometimes taken as part of the fauna of Laos or Vietnam. We review relevant opinions and evidence, past and present, and conclude that the goral has not been biologically documented in either country. We encourage conservation personnel to be attentive to potential specimens, camera-trap records, or direct sightings.
