Mangabey ( Cercocebus albigena ) Population Density , Group Size , and Ranging : A Twenty-Year Comparison

  title={Mangabey ( Cercocebus albigena ) Population Density , Group Size , and Ranging : A Twenty-Year Comparison},
  author={WILLIAM OLUPOTl and Colin A. Chapman and Charles H. Brown and Peter M. Waser},
Mangabey groups studied in the Kibale Forest Reserve, Uganda, in 1971 were studied again in 1991 using similar data collection protocols. The results were used to assess the effect of group size on activity budgets and travel costs, and to document the effects of habitat changes on mangabey density and demography. Larger mangabey groups traveled longer distances per day than smaller groups. Time budgets were less clearly influenced by group size. Mangabey population density increased over the… CONTINUE READING
