Bengal florican (Houbaropsis bengalensis) is a globally threatened (IUCN status Critically Endangered) bustard inhabiting alluvial grasslands in India, Nepal and Cambodia (BirdLife
International, 2001). Populations have declined as a result of habitat loss and hunting and, in the Indian subcontinent, the species no longer occurs outside protected areas (BirdLife
International, 2001).
