Literature about Sumatran Elephants

is scarce. Please help us to establish a complete bibliography of Sumatran elephant literature and send us publication titles or full pdf versions of any documents addressing Sumatran elephants and their conservation. Especially interesting are non-published reports and documents, as these are usually difficult to obtain but contain important new knowledge that few people know about.
