In the forest-savanna mosaic of Cote d'Ivoire (Parc National de la Comoe), we studied the guild structure of dung beetle assemblages of fresh buffalo faeces (60 samples, 19 626 specimens) in three adjacent habitats: savanna parkland, gallery forest, grassland of the river valley. We found clear patterns at the guild level determined by the habitat type and time of day: in the savanna parkland during the day, telecoprids (rollers) and their kleptoparasites are dominant. At night, paracoprids… CONTINUE READING
