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
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.
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
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.
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
Taxonomic revision of the threatened African genus Pseudohydrosme Engl. (Araceae), with P. ebo, a new, critically endangered species from Ebo, Cameroon
TLDR
Three species of the African genus Pseudohydrosme, formerly considered endemic to Gabon, are recognised, morphologically characterised, their habitat and biogeography discussed, and their extinction risks are respectively assessed as Critically Endangered, Endangered and Critically endangered using the IUCN standard.
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.
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.
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.
An evaluation of poaching and bushmeat off takes in the Ebo Forest Reserve (EFR), Littoral Region, Cameroon
Study on the poaching and bushmeat off takes /harvest in the Ebo Forest Reserve was carried out in 2012 and 2016 to identify and quantify species poached, poaching methods and seasonal impact on

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.
Chimpanzees use stone hammers in Cameroon
TLDR
It is reported that chimpanzees in the Ebo forest, Cameroon, more than 1700 km east of the previously proposed riverine ‘information barrier’ in Cote d'Ivoire, have been observed to crack the hard shelled nuts of Coula edulis with stones used as hammers, so as to access the nutrient-rich seeds.
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.
