"The tiger represents an enormous canary in the biological coal mine...If there is enough land, water,
cover and game to support a keystone species like this, it implies that ...the ecosystem is intact."
John Vaillant, The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival, New York, Alfred A . Knopf, 2010. p. 300.
