The Impact of Forest Disturbance on the Seasonal Foraging Ecology of a Critically Endangered African Primate
TLDR
There was high β diversity in diets at the cusp of wet and dry seasons, and during periods of low fruit availability, which suggests considerable dietary adaptability to fluctuating resources, which may act to buffer against further forest disturbance. Expand
Is There a Role for Human-Dominated Landscapes in the Long-Term Conservation Management of the Critically Endangered Kipunji (Rungwecebus kipunji)?
As forest loss and degradation continues, the human-dominated landscape outside protected areas should become increasingly relevant to primate conservation. Here we consider the Tanzanian endemicExpand
Can we extend the area of occupancy of the kipunji, a critically endangered African primate?
The recently discovered and critically endangered kipunji Rungwecebus kipunji is known from just two sites in southern Tanzania, with the bulk of its tiny population surviving as patchily distributedExpand
Spatial analysis of aerial survey data reveals correlates of elephant carcasses within a heavily poached ecosystem
Abstract Growth of the illegal wildlife trade is a key driver of biodiversity loss, with considerable research focussing on trafficking and trade, but rather less focussed on supply. ElephantExpand
Diet and feeding patterns in the kipunji (Rungwecebus kipunji) in Tanzania’s Southern Highlands: a first analysis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the kipunji is an omnivorous dietary generalist, favouring mature and immature leaves, ripe and unripe fruits and bark in similar proportions, with an almost comparable fondness for leaf stalks and flowers. Expand
Herpetofauna of Montane Areas of Tanzania. 4. Amphibians and Reptiles of Mahenge Mountains, with Comments on Biogeography, Diversity, and Conservation
Abstract The Mahenge Mountains are located in the Eastern Arc Mountains, part of a global biodiversity hotspot. Few amphibian and reptile surveys have been conducted in this area, with only one studyExpand
Detecting and predicting forest degradation: A comparison of ground surveys and remote sensing in Tanzanian forests
Summary • Tropical forest degradation is widely recognised as a driver of biodiversity loss and a major source of carbon emissions. However, in contrast to deforestation, the more gradual changesExpand
Evaluating the Habitat of the Critically Endangered Kipunji Monkey
TLDR
Habitat quality in Vikongwa was high compared to other regional and African forests, in that tree stem density, basal area, species richness and availability of kipunji dietary species were all comparatively high, however, the nearby Sanje forest, where the kip unji is absent, had comparable habitat to Vikongwas.
