This review of the Ethiopian and Eritrean mammal fauna recognises provisional totals of 277 terrestrial and 11 marine species. The terrestrial fauna is dominated by savanna forms (47.2% of the total), most of which are widespread but with significant numbers being derived from either the East African savannas or the sub-Saharan savanna belt. Deserticolous species (16.2%) include many which are clearly associated with the Somali-arid zone. The 29 endemics are almost exclusively confined to the… Expand
Catalogue of the amphibians of Ethiopia, including a key for their identification
This review recognises 63 amphibian species in Ethiopia, a total that is sure to increase as many still remote regions come to be more adequately surveyed. It incorporates the following taxonomicExpand
02. A preliminary review of the amphibians of Ethiopia
TLDR
The Ethiopian Plateau has evidently provided a refuge for some taxa which have a relict distribution in the mountains of Africa and a major centre for occupation and adaptive radiation by others. Expand
An annotated checklist of the amphibians and reptiles of Eritrea, with keys for their identification
TLDR
Of eight taxa which extend into this region from the Ethiopian Plateau, only three appear to be genuinely montane and the ability of the remainder to colonise lowland sites elsewhere in their ranges is taken as evidence of their resistance to drought conditions. Expand
Herpetofauna and Mammals
Of the 64 known amphibian species of Ethiopia, the Lake Tana Sub-basin is believed to contain 19 species of amphibian belonging to 12 genera and 9 families. All of these species are grouped underExpand
Diversity of anurans in forest fragments of southwestern Ethiopia : The case of the Yayu Coffee Forest Biosphere Reserve ( YCFBR )
—Amphibia is the least studied group of vertebrates in Ethiopia. Besides contributions from a few expeditions in the past, the effort given to amphibian studies among academicians and researchers hasExpand
Large Mammal Diversity and Endemism at Geremba Mountain Fragment, Southern Ethiopia
Outside protected areas in Ethiopia, there is a lack of information concerning mammalian diversity and ecology. Consequently, the findings of the research on large mammals at Geremba MountainExpand
Assessment of birds of the Arid water bodies in Tigray, Northern Ethiopia
The ornithological role of lake Hashengie and 10 selected reservoirs have been studied from January to February, 2012 in Tigray, Ethiopia. Birds were surveyed using total and Block count methods fromExpand
Two new species of Crocidura (Mammalia: Soricidae) from Ethiopia and updates on the Ethiopian shrew fauna
Abstract. We describe two new species of white-toothed shrews from south-western and central Ethiopia, based on recent collections and an application of morphological and genetic methods, CrociduraExpand
Lizards of Ethiopia (Reptilia Sauria):an annotated checklist, bibliography,gazetteer and identification key
TLDR
It seems extraordinary to record only five saurian species which are believed to be endemic in such environments in Ethiopia, so the inference that there are many more still to be discovered has important implications for conservation, because montane forest is known to be among the most threatened of Ethiopian biomes and there is clearly an urgent need for its herpetofauna to be more thoroughly researched and documented. Expand
Out of Africa, but how and when? The case of hamadryas baboons (Papio hamadryas).
TLDR
The results suggest that hamadryas baboons colonized Arabia during the Late Pleistocene (130-12 kya [thousands of years ago] and also moved back to Africa, and strongly suggest that the 'southern route' from Africa to Arabia could have been used by hamadries baboons during the same time period as proposed for modern humans.

TLDR
The present work indicates that there are further areas in the northern and southern parts of the country where interbreeding between Anubis and Hamadryas baboons may be anticipated, and forsees the possibility of hybridisation between P. anubis doguera X P. hamadryAS X Theropithecus gelada. Expand

Biogeography of East African forest mammals
TLDR
This paper analyses the distribution of seventy-three mammal species in seventeen East African forest sites of differing geological history and indicates four groupings (West, North, South and Coast) based on species presence, which represent the highest richness and endemism and the main refuge and colonization source.
