Figures from this paper

Impatiens banen sp. nov. & I. etugei sp. nov. (Balsaminaceae), threatened lowland species of the Cross-Sanaga Interval, Cameroon
We describe two range-restricted new species to science from the genus Impatiens (Balsaminaceae), both threatened, from the Cross-Sanaga Interval of western Cameroon. The first, Impatiens banen,
Uvariopsis dicaprio (Annonaceae) a new tree species with notes on its pollination biology, and the Critically Endangered narrowly endemic plant species of the Ebo Forest, Cameroon
The Ebo Forest area is a highly threatened centre of diversity in the Littoral Region of Cameroon, globally important for conservation with many threatened species including 68 threatened species
Kupeantha yabassi (Coffeeae-Rubiaceae), a new Critically Endangered shrub species of the Ebo Forest area, Littoral Region, Cameroon
A new species to science of evergreen forest shrub, Kupeantha yabassi M.G.Alvarez & Cheek (Coffeeae - Rubiaceae), is described, illustrated and compared morphologically with the closely similar
Landscaping the behavioural ecology of primate stone tool use
TLDR
The findings indicate that the technological landscape of the Bossou chimpanzees shares affinities with the ‘favoured places’ model of hominin site formation and provides new insights for reconstructing ancient patterns of landscape use.
Environmental and anthropogenic effects on the nesting patterns of Nigeria–Cameroon chimpanzees in North‐West Cameroon
TLDR
Chimpanzees select safe trees (tall trees with high lowest branch height) located in nesting areas (primary forest, high elevation, and steep slopes) that are not easily accessible by humans, and conservation efforts should focus on protecting primary forests at high elevation and steep slope and reducing human impact.
Uvariopsis ebo (Annonaceae) a new, Critically Endangered tree species from the Ebo Forest, Cameroon and a key to the Cameroonian species of Uvariopsis
A new species to science of evergreen forest tree, Uvariopsis ebo (Annonaceae) is described, illustrated, mapped, and compared morphologically with the other cauliflorous species of the genus.
Kupeantha yabassi (Coffeeae- Rubiaceae), a new Critically Endangered shrub species of the Ebo Forest area, Littoral Region, Cameroon
A new species to science of evergreen forest shrub, Kupeantha yabassi (Coffeeae - Rubiaceae), is described, illustrated, mapped, and compared morphologically with the closely similar species K.
Human Activity and Forest Degradation Threaten Populations of the Nigeria–Cameroon Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes ellioti) in Western Cameroon
Increased human activities such as commodity-led deforestation, extension of agriculture, urbanization, and wildfires are major drivers of forest loss worldwide. In Cameroon, these activities cause a
Taxonomic revision of the threatened African genus Pseudohydrosme Engl. (Araceae), with P. ebo, a new, critically endangered species from Ebo, Cameroon
TLDR
This is the first revision in nearly 130 years of the African genus Pseudohydrosme, formerly considered endemic to Gabon, and three species, one new to science, are recognised, in two sections.
Dietary Ecology of the Nigeria–Cameroon Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes ellioti)
TLDR
Observations link habitat diversity to differences in feeding ecology among genetically distinct populations of P. t.

Is nut cracking in wild chimpanzees a cultural behaviour
Abstract Nut cracking behaviour, once thought to be typical for most West African chimpanzees, is in reality restricted to a very small area within the evergreen forest perimeter. In Cote d'Ivoire,
New Insights into Chimpanzees, Tools, and Termites from the Congo Basin
TLDR
Findings of strict adherence to tool forms at different nest types, tool material selectivity, repeated visits to nests with reusable wood tool assemblages, and differences in material culture between communities have broad implications for the understanding of the ecological and cultural factors that shape hominoid tool use.
A new west African chimpanzee subspecies?
TLDR
The data suggest that a previously unrecognized type of chimpanzee may be present in Nigeria and adjacent parts of Cameroon, and that the zoogeographic barriers separating chimpanzees are different from those previously proposed.
Subsistence Technology of Nigerian Chimpanzees
TLDR
The prevalence of elementary technology may indicate that the material culture of Gashaka chimpanzees is most related to core cultural tendencies of Central African populations, and many of the expressions of subsistence technology seem to be environmentally constrained.
