We investigated the relative abundance of four duiker species and the environmental effect including human impacts on their abundance in the forest of Moukalaba, Gabon. We counted and collected fresh faeces from duikers in thirteen 2-km line transects established in different types of vegetation. Genetic species identification showed that blue duiker (Philantomba monticola), Ogilby’s duiker (Cephalophus ogilbyi, which might include the sister species Peter’s duiker Cephalophus callipygus), bay… CONTINUE READING
