Western gorilla diet: A synthesis from six sites
The objective of this paper is to collate information on western gorilla diet from six study sites throughout much of their current range, including preliminary information from two sites (Afi andExpand
Social structure and life‐history patterns in western gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla)
Life‐history traits and ecological conditions have an important influence on primate social systems. Most of what we know about the life‐history patterns and social structure of gorillas comes fromExpand
Western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) change their activity patterns in response to frugivory
The most important environmental factor explaining interspecies variation in ecology and sociality of the great apes is likely to be variation in resource availability. Relatively little is knownExpand

The ranging patterns of western gorillas have been described in relation to their more frugivorous diet as compared to mountain gorillas. However, the lack of data from habituated groups prevents aExpand
Termite Feeding by Gorilla gorilla gorilla at Bai Hokou, Central African Republic
Though insectivory by large-bodied gorillas may be unexpected, researchers have reported it in all populations of gorillas studied to date. Our study of 2 well monitored groups of western gorillasExpand
Endoparasites of Western Lowland Gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) at Bai Hokou, Central African Republic
A coprologic study of free-ranging western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) at Bai Hokou, Dzangha-Ndoki National Park, Central African Republic (2°51′34″N, 16°28′03″E) was conducted fromExpand
Behavioral Responses of Gorillas to Habituation in the Dzanga-Ndoki National Park, Central African Republic
We monitored the impact of habituation for tourism through changes in gorillas' behavior during the habituation process at Bai Hokou (Dzanga-Ndoki National Park, Central African Republic) from AugustExpand
Using Dung to Estimate Gorilla Density: Modeling Dung Production Rate
There is an urgent need for information on western gorilla population sizes and distribution to improve present and plan future conservation actions. Researchers traditionally have estimated gorillaExpand
