The buffer zones of Nigerian protected areas are poorly managed. Patas monkey (Erythrocebus patas) was studied in fact owing to its dearth of information on its ecology and existence in South-West Nigeria National Park. Therefore, it was necessary to examine E. patas spatial distribution and population structure in the Old Oyo National Park buffer zone ranges, situated in South-West Nigeria and as well know its dietary uptake alongside delineating its various activities. Observations were…

Preliminary survey of primates in Old Oyo National Park Buffer Zone, Nigeria

Results showed that Juveniles constituted most primate species population structure in both wet and dry season which ranged between (7.00 and 25.61%) and (9.33 and 59.57%) respectively.

Avifauna Species Diversity and Abundance in Kainji Lake National Park, Niger State, Nigeria

The dearth of understanding the importance of bird species diversity and abundance contributes to the low rate of conservation and distribution of wildlife species in the ecosystem. Diversity and

Variation in diet and ranging of black and white colobus monkeys in Kibale National Park, Uganda

It is shown that differences among groups in the intensity with which they fed on specific tree species were not just related to phenology, but also to differences in the forest compositions of groups’ core areas.

Diversity and richness of bird species in newly formed habitats of Chandoli National Park in Western Ghats, Maharashtra State, India

The study of bird species diversity and richness in newly formed habitats of Chandoli National Park in Western Ghats (now declared as international heritage), Maharashtra State, India was carried out

Anthropogenic Activities Threatening the Management of Ecotourism Resources in Old Oyo National Park, Nigeria

Abundant fauna and flora resources in Nigeria are being threatened due to the increasing rate of anthropogenic activities across the protected areas in the country. This study examined anthropogenic

Difference in food selection between patas monkeys (Erythrocebus patas) and tantalus monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops tantalus) in Kala Maloue National Park, Cameroon, in relation to nutrient content

Why the results are inconsistent with a well known body weight–diet relationship (Jarman–Bell principle) is discussed, as energy-efficient locomotion enables patas to exploit not only small dispersed food items of high quality but also areas where high-quality foods are distributed in clumps.

Differences Between Vervets (Cercopithecus aethiops) and Patas Monkeys (Erythrocebus patas) in Agonistic Interactions Between Adult Females

Ecological conditions, i.e., usurpability of foods, can override phylogenetic history as the selective pressure determining the nature of female competitive relationships within groups and Erythrocebus spp.

Erratum to: Demography and Life Histories of Sympatric Patas Monkeys, Erythrocebus patas, and Vervets, Cercopithecus aethiops, in Laikipia, Kenya

In the original Fig. 1, the callitrichids were inadvertently omitted, not just the strepsirrhines as stated in the text. We correct this with a revised figure that includes all primates for which we

Seasonal, sex, and interspecific differences in activity time budgets and diets of patas monkeys (Erythrocebus patas) and tantalus monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops tantalus), living sympatrically in northern Cameroon

Seasonal, sex, and interspecific differences in activity time budgest and diets of patas and sympatric tantalus monkeys are examined on the basis of 5-day data sets collected in three and two different seasons by the method of focal animal sampling.

Dietary, behavioral, and morphological aspects of gummivory† in primates

Gums are complex polysaccharides which, like foliage, require fermentation for digestion, and at least some gummivorous primates show intestinal specializations for fermentation.
