A study was carried out in Western Usambara Mountains, Tanzania, to investigate small mammals and flea abundances, diversity and spatial distribution in relation to soils and landforms. A digital elevation model (DEM) analysis was carried out coupled with field surveys to examine in detail landform characteristics. Soil was studied on randomly selected landforms, the sites at which small mammals were trapped. Results showed that Shannon Diversity Index increased with values of 1.58, 1.62 and 1… CONTINUE READING
