— The Peters'Duiker Cephalophus callipygus and the Bay Duiker C. dorsalis are very similar in morphology (body-weight, 20-22 kg) and habitat (dense forest) but they display opposite activity rhythms : Peters'Duiker is strictly diurnal, whereas Bay Duiker is nocturnal. The activity of 17 individuals was followed during 28 months in a natural reserve where fruits resources were regularly evaluated. Stomach contents of 130 animals collected by local hunters were analysed. Fruits are the major… 
Feeding preferences of duiker (Cephalophus maxwelli, C. rufilatus, and C. niger) in Ivory Coast and Ghana
TLDR
The food composition in the three duiker species studied showed that red-flanked duiker fed preferably in and around forest patches within the moist savanna, and black duiker frequented cultivations in and near moist forest.
Comparison of diets of the acouchy, agouti and paca, the three largest terrestrial rodents of French Guianan forests
TLDR
The diets of these three large rodents appeared intermediate between the small rodent species and the artiodactyls inhabiting the same areas, which also concords with their body mass and their place within the guild of terrestrial mammals.
PROTECTING SEEDS FROM PRIMATES : EXAMPLES FROM DIOSPYROS SPP. IN THE LOPE RESERVE, GABON
TLDR
Comparison of fruit characters and of feeding patterns of primates for the six Diospyros species suggests that some fruit characters have evolved to reduce seed loss during maturation, and that large seeds are potentially vulnerable to high levels of predation but the presence of irritant hairs provides protection during fruit development.
Feeding Ecology and Niche Partitioning of the Laetoli Ungulate Faunas
  • T. Kaiser

TLDR
Mesowear data of ungulates from the ULB suggest that extant ungulate representing closely related lineages in the same genus or even tribe may not serve as actualistic model taxa in faunal reconstructions using taxonomic uniformitarianism.
Estimating the abundance of duiker (Cephalophus spp.) populations in African rainforests: an overview of relevant methods
TLDR
31 studies from the literature are retrieved and methods used to estimate the abundance of duiker populations in African rainforests are compared and methods derived from distance sampling offer the best compromise between the implementation costs and the biological information collected are evaluated.
Hungry for fruit? – A case study on the ecology of middle Miocene Moschidae (Mammalia, Ruminantia)
TLDR
This study reveals the oldest fruit enriched diet in Moschidae so far and suggests ecologic niche partitioning of two sympatric moschids in Steinheim a.
FRUIT PHENOLOGY OF THE GREAT APE HABITAT IN THE MOUKALABA-DOUDOU NATIONAL PARK, GABON
TLDR
The exis- tence of constantly abundant fruit species may have supported the high density of great apes in the MDNP, and four of them are important fruit food resources for the great apes.
Bushmeat hunting and management: implications of duiker ecology and interspecific competition

  • 2004
TLDR
Current knowledge of duiker ecology and niche separation is reviewed in order to assess likely indirect effects of Selective hunting or zoning on non-targeted species through changes in competitive dominance in different habitats.
Cross‐species amplification of bovid microsatellites in central African duikers (genus Cephalophus) and other sympatric artiodactyls
TLDR
These multiplex assemblies will greatly facilitate studies of individual identification, parentage analysis, population size estimation and fine‐scale analyses of population genetic structure in central African artiodactyls.

Seasonal Variations of Diet Related to Species and Sex in a Community of Cercopithecus Monkeys
TLDR
Interspecific differences are related to search strategies which depend on body weight, forest levels used, social roles, etc, which suggests that interspecific competition is important in determining resource partitioning.
Comparison of the Diets of Frugivorous Forest Ruminants of Gabon
Fruits constitute the major part of the stomach contents (70–80%) of seven species of sympatric forest ruminants of northeastern Gabon; there are large individual variations in the proportions of the
THE EVOLUTIONARY STRATEGY OF THE EQUIDAE AND THE ORIGINS OF RUMEN AND CECAL DIGESTION
  • C. Janis

TLDR
The perissodactyls were the dominant medium to largesized herbivores during the Eocene, and in the early Oligocene a reduction in their diversity coincided with the beginning radiations of the ruminant groups of artiodactylS.
Climate and the food habits of ungulates on Galana Ranch
TLDR
Feeding observations were made during 21 months on semi-domesticated buffalo, eland and oryx and on cattle using the feeding minutes technique and analyses of browse leaves show that during dry periods they are comparatively rich in protein when compared with grasses.
Adaptive strategies of primates in relation to leaf eating
Lepilemur is presented as an example of extreme specialization for folivory, with a primitive type of social organization and the smallest individual territory. The "supplying area" of the other
Palatability factors and nutritive values of the food of buffaloes (Syncerus caffer) in Uganda
TLDR
The observations support the belief that selective grazing enables a herbivore to consume a diet of significantly higher nutritive value than that of the average sward, and help compensate for the low nutritivevalue of pasture during the dry season.
The food habits of wild ungulates in Uganda by analyses of stomach contents
TLDR
Food eaten by six species of ungulates was studied by analysing stomach contents, using the method developed for faecal analyses, which showed that animal species usually avoided competition by their specialized food habits.

TLDR
The aim of the present paper is to review two problems discussed recently by other workers, namely the factors influencing differences between the different islands in (i) the degree of subspecific endemism and (ii) the number of resident species, particularly in relation to the possible roles of (a) isolation, and the associated difficulties of dispersal between the islands and (b) ecological differences in the vegetation and in the other finch species present.
