We demonstrate that although auditory sampling is a useful tool, this method alone will not provide a truly accurate indication of population size, density and distribution of gibbons in an area. If auditory sampling alone is employed, we show that data collection must take place over a sufficient period to account for variation in calling patterns across seasons. The population of Hylobates albibarbis in the Sabangau catchment, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia, was surveyed from July to December… 

Population mapping of gibbons in Kalimantan, Indonesia: correlates of gibbon density and vegetation across the species’ range

The first comprehensive survey of gibbons (Hylobates spp.) across Indonesian Borneo was carried out over 3 years to (1) determine whether densities of gibbon species are cor- related with vegetation

VEGETATION CORRELATES OF GIBBON DENSITY IN THE SEBANGAU NATIONAL PARK, CENTRAL KALIMANTAN, INDONESIA

Understanding the links between animal populations and the characteristics of their habitat is essential for their conservation. Following recent re-assessments of the conservation status of the

Vegetation correlates of gibbon density in the peat-swamp forest of Sabangau national park, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia

Understanding the complex relationship between primates and their habitats is essential for effective conservation plans. Peat-swamp forest has recently been recognized as a major habitat for the

Vegetation correlates of gibbon density in the peat‐swamp forest of the Sabangau catchment, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia

This survey indicates that selective logging, which specifically targets large trees and disrupts canopy cover, is likely to have adverse effects on gibbon populations in peat‐swamp forests, and calls for greater protection of these little studied ecosystems.

Understanding the complex relationship between primates and their habitats is essential for effective conservation plans. Peat-swamp forest has recently been recognized as an important habitat for

Population density of red langurs in Sabangau tropical peat-swamp forest, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia.

This work seeks to establish the first population density estimates of the endemic red langur (Presbytis rubicunda) in Sabangau TPSF, the largest remaining contiguous lowland forest-block on Borneo, and highlights the conservation value of TPSFs for P. Rubicunda given the high population density and large areas remaining.

Group density estimates for lar gibbons (Hylobates lar) and siamangs (Symphalangus syndactylus) and the quantitative analysis of the vegetative characteristics of the Sikundur field site.

Southeast Asia’s tropical forests encompass 20-25% of the world’s plant and animal species. However, at the moment, this region is in the midst of a biodiversity crisis since it is experiencing a

Population Density of Red Langurs in Sabangau Tropical Peat‐Swamp Forest, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia

This work seeks to establish the first population density estimates of the endemic red langur (Presbytis rubicunda) in Sabangau TPSF, the largest remaining contiguous lowland forest‐block on Borneo, and highlights the conservation value of TPSFs for P. Rubicunda given the high population density and large areas remaining.

A distance sampling approach to estimate density and abundance of gibbon groups

The methods used suggest that Cat Tien National Park contains one of the largest populations of southern yellow‐cheeked crested gibbon in Vietnam and is one way of avoiding underestimation of gibbon group density and abundance.

Spatial distribution and density of the Lar gibbon Hylobates lar and Siamang Symphalangus syndactylus in relation to canopy structure and disturbance in a lowland dipterocarp forest, Sumatra.

Results indicate these hylobatid species exhibit a degree of tolerance and behavioural flexibility to habitat disturbance, though the preservation of tall trees and the provision of a significant amount of canopy connectivity is required for their continued presence in lowland forests.

The density of gibbon populations may be estimated by listening for the loud duetted songs of monogamous territorial groups. This method requires a correction factor which must be estimated from the

A recent census and survey of crested gibbons in Yunnan Province, partly funded from FFPS's Oryx 100% Fund, revealed new information on the distribution, status and conservation of gibbon in China.
