    Abstract: The threat that the bushmeat trade presents to primates and other taxa was assessed from the literature, including data from markets, village hunting studies and logging concessions in Central and West Africa. In many cases the numbers of both common and protected species of primate being killed throughout the region are thought to be unsustainable. This is also the case for other taxa involved in the bushmeat trade, which crosses geographic, cultural and economic boundaries. A suite of measures must be considered to mitigate the effects of this trade, and these measures will have to recognize the local, regional and national socio-economic importance of the trade if they are to result in long-term conservation success.

    Abstract: This study is an attempt to test the hypothesis that forest plantations would catalyze the regeneration of natural forest birds communities. In December 1995, in the vicinity of Pointe Noire, Congo, the bird communities were censused in 5 experimental plots of eucalyptus, 1 of acacias, 1 of pines, The species number varied in the eucalyptus plantations from 4 to 35; it was 44 in the acacias and 0 in the pines, The eucalyptus were populated by widespread and opportunistic species, the African forest endemics being absent. Seven palearctic migrants, two being common, were observed in the plots.Seven guilds, characterized by their feeding habits, are described, The specific richness of the avifauna increased with the fragmentation of the plots, the presence of an undergrowth being the key factor of the presence of a rich and diversified bird community in the plantations, The number of bird species censused in each eucalyptus plot was narrowly correlated with the number of understorey plant-species censused in the same plot,Comparisons with drier countries suggest that a humid climate reduces the competition for water in the soil and the allelopathic effects peculiar to the eucalyptus, In Congo, the rain pattern permits the spreading out of an undergrowth sufficient to sustain diversified vertebrates communities,The practise of systematically destroying the undergrowth by the sylviculturists is questionable, both for the economical benefits and for the conservation of the local species, plants and animals.

    Abstract: The diversity and extent of forest in the Itombwe Mountains, eastern Congo Democratic Republic (formerly Zaire), are among the most significance in continental Africa. Despite some human impact, this area still harbors a wide range of vegetation types, including forests and grasslands, drylands and wetlands, and mid-altitude to upper-montane habitats. Forests extend from mid-altitude through sub-montane and montane to alpine zones. These first results provide a general description of the Itombwe Mountains as a basis for more detailed investigations. Certain priorities in conservation-development actions are suggested, based mainly on tree species knowledge; this information could influence further decision-making processes and management guidelines for the conservation and sustainable use of Itombwe's natural resources.

    Abstract: Gorillas are one of the most vulnerable primates in the world. There are few areas in the African continent where this species survives, and West African coast areas around the Biafra gulf are one of these. A census was made of gorilla populations throughout the Rio Muni region in Equatorial Guinea between July 1989 and December 1990. The aim of the census was to estimate the total numbers of this species in relation with its distribution on Rio Muni region. The method was based on nest counts along strip transects which allowed the calculation of population densities of nesting adult individuals. A total of 385 km of transects was sampled in areas inhabited by gorillas. The overall density calculated for transects in Rio Muni was 0.45 nesting gorilas/km(2). The highest densities were found in the Rio Campo area (0.71 ng/km(2)) of northwestern Rio Muni, and in the Nsork area (0.65 ng/km(2)) of southeastern Rio Muni. The vegetation type where nest groups were predominantly found was heliofilic forest. The average densities of the gorilla population found in Rio Muni were similar to those found in neighbouring Gabon and Congo. The estimated size of the gorilla population in Rio Muni stands between 1000 and 2000 individuals.

    Abstract: Small-mammal diversity and abundance were examined in two primary forests (mixed and mbau forests) and two disturbed habitats (secondary forest and village fields) in the Ituri Forest of Zaire (Democratic Republic of Congo). Small-mammal species observed were Deomys ferrugineus, Hybomys univittatus, Hylomyscus stella, Lophuromys flavopunctatus, Malacomys longipes, Mns minutoides, Oenomys hypoxanthus, and Praomys jacksoni. Secondary forest was the most species-rid of the four habitats examined. Mixed forest exhibited significantly higher species diversity of small mammals than mbau forest. The difference in the composition of small mammals reflected the difference in the composition of tree species between species-rich (mixed and secondary) forests and the species-poor (mbau) forest. Small mammals in village fields were not true forest species but typically were found in a wide variety of habitats. This study provides a benchmark of the ecology of small mammals in the Ituri Forest of Zaire prior to increased human disturbance.

    Abstract: This report updates the distribution and provides abundance estimates for Grauer's gorilla Gorilla gorilla graueri across its 90,000-sq-km range. The authors divide the range of Grauer's gorilla into four regions within which they identify 11 populations and estimate a total of c. 16,900 individuals. Gorillas found in the Kahuzi-Biega lowland-Kasese represent 86 per cent of the subspecies's total population. Further, approximately 67 per cent of known Grauer's gorillas inhabit Kahuzi-Biega, Maiko and Virunga National Parks. The eastern region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire) has an extremely high human population growth rate indicating that deforestation and wildlife use trends will continue to increase. Thus, in spite of the encouraging results of surveys to identify populations and characterize abundance, no Grauer's gorilla population should be considered safe from extirpation.

Survey of Grauer's Gorillas (Gorilla Gorilla Graueri) and Eastern Chimpanzees (Pan Troglodytes Schweinfurthi) in the Kahuzi-Biega National Park Lowland Sector and Adjacent Forest in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. International Journal of Primatology 19, no. 2: 207-35.
    Abstract: We describe the distribution and estimate densities of Grauer's gorillas (Gorilla gorilla graueri) and eastern chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes schweinfurthi) in a 12,770-km(2) area of lowland forest between the Lowa, Luka, Lugula, and Oku rivers in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the site of the largest continuous population of Grauer's gorillas. The survey included a total of 480 km of transects completed within seven sampling zones in the Kahuzi-Biega National park lowland sector and adjacent Kasese regions and approximately 1100 km of footpath and forest reconnaissance. We estimate total populations of 7670 (4180-10,830) weaned gorillas within the Kahuzi-Biega lowland sector and 3350 (1420-5950) individuals in the Kasese survey areas. Within the same area, we estimate a population of 2600 (1620-4500) chimpanzees. Ape nest site densities are significantly higher within the Kahuzi-Biega lowland sector than in the more remote Kasese survey area in spite of a significantly higher encounter rate of human sign within the lowland sector of the park. Comparison of our data with information obtained by Emlen and Schaller during the first rangewide survey of Grauer's gorillas in 1959 suggests that gorilla populations have remained stable in protected areas but declined in adjacent forest. These findings underscore the key role played by national parks in protecting biological resources in spite of the recent political and economic turmoil in the region. We also show that forest reconnaissance is a reliable and cost-effective method to assess gorilla densities in remote forested areas.

    Abstract: A review indicates that nineteen species of dolphins and porpoises (cetacean families Delphinidae and Phocoenidae) occur in West African waters (from the Strait of Gibraltar to the Congo River). In addition, two other cold temperate species reach their southern limit at the northern border of the area. For each species, distribution records in West African waters are reviewed. A key to dolphins and porpoises of West Africa, based on external appearance, is presented to aid in identification.

    Abstract: The brush-tailed porcupine (Atherurus africanus) is a hystricomorph rodent, which frequents the forests of West and Central Africa. With an average weight of 3 kg, it is a favourite source of meat for urban and rural populations of Gabon, Nigeria, Cameroon or Congo. Hunted in large quantities, its price is often higher than that of other game or domestic animals. Although its current productivity in captivity is limited to a single young per birth and two to three births per year per female, this species could be a good candidate for minilivestock programmes in African forest areas if its current reproductive potential in captivity could be improved. Further research should be encouraged on its biology and reproduction since the current level of hunting for this species is probably not sustainable. Captive breeding programmes could play a role in assessing a better knowledge of the species' biology, and in reducing the effects of intensive hunting in areas where this activity is no longer sustainable.

    Abstract: The hypothesis that tree plantations may catalyze the regeneration of natural forest biodiversity was tested through studies of floristic diversity and structure in fast-growing tree plantations in the Congo. Study sites included experimental and industrial plantations on poor sandy coastal soils near Pointe-Noire, and experimental plantations on clay soils near Loudima. The effects of plantations species, plantation age (in 6-to 20-year-old eucalypt stands), disturbance due to herbicide use and fire, proximity to natural forest, and soils on understory plant diversity were studied. These plantations were compared to the native savanna ecosystem and to adjacent natural secondary forest stands. Vegetation diversity was assessed through analyses of floristic composition, species richness and frequency. Forest species were dominant in the understory of most plantations, especially in the older stands. However, the forest species established in plantation understories were guile different from those from adjacent natural forest stands. Premna lucens, Psorospemum tenuifolium and Psychotria cf. peduncularis were the most important forest species found in most eucalypt plantations and in Finns caribaea and Acacia auriculiformis plantations. Alchornea cordifolia, Authocleista nobilis, Barteria nigritiana and Bertiera cf. batesii were also important. The savanna species Eriosema erici-rosenii, Annona arenaria and Loudetia arundinacea were encountered in many plots. Herbaceous species were dominant in the younger and disturbed plantation stands.

    Abstract: Population studies are an essential part of conservation actions. Under exceptional observation conditions we studied a western lowland gorilla population visiting the Maya salt-clearing (north of the Pare national d'Odzala, P.N.O., Congo) over an 8 month period; 36 groups and 18 solitary individuals (a total of 420 individuals) have been identified visiting the clearing, which suggests a high gorilla density in the region. Ninety-six percent of the gorillas entered the clearing in groups. One-male groups had a mean size of 11.2. Ninety percent of solitary individuals were silver-back males. Compared with other populations of both lowland gorillas and mountain gorillas, the Maya population had the highest immature rate and the highest number of infants per female. Ecological correlates that could explain the attractiveness of the Maya clearing are discussed. The present status and the renewal rate of the Maya population indicate the need for further studies and confirm the importance of developing eco-tourism in this region as part of the sustainable park management activities developed by the ECOFAC programme (European Union). The results also provide arguments to support the proposal for extending the P.N.O. to include this region, which is rich in salt-clearings and attracts many other key-species of mammal such as forest elephants.

    Abstract: This article proposes, through a joint analysis of a range of satellite data sets, a regional approach to the assessment of forest cover of Central Africa and a continuously updated information base on which to build a monitoring system. The following landscapes are described in detail: lowland rain forest, swamp forest, secondary formations, forest-savanna mosaic, and plantations. The separability between the vegetation types is thus established for the sensors available at a regional scale (AVHRR, ATSR, ERS-1 SAR) and over a broad range of ecotones. The performances of the different sensors illustrate the complementarity of the presently available remote sensing techniques. A regional vegetation map was produced of a part of the Congo Basin covering about 20 million ha by the combination of the best sensors used in the present study. Each vegetation type is mapped with the most appropriate sensor in terns of spectral behavior and spatial resolution. AVHRR data are used for the distinction between forest and savanna and for overall ecosystem monitoring, ATSR data have been showed appropriate for mapping the secondary forests, while ERS SAR data are reliable for mapping the gallery-forests, the plantations, and the swamp forests. A contingency matrix has been computed between the synthetic vegetation map and the national forest map of Congo-Kinshasa. The overall source of difference is related to the confusion between lowland rain forest and swamp forest. The combination of these sensors contributes thus to a new product, the thematic content and spatial detail of which has never been achieved before at the regional level.

    Abstract: Aim This paper presents the Joint Research Centre's TREES Project satellite derived Vegetation Map of Central Africa, at 1:5,000,000 scale, with a detailed description of the vegetation classes and their distribution. The information content of the map is compared with other conventional and satellite derived maps of the region for validation and evaluation purposes.Location The map focuses on the Guineo-Congolian ecological domain and covers the following countries: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabor 1 and the Democratic Republic of Congo.Methods Using coarse resolution satellite imagery a map of vegetation cover has been produced based upon the spectral response of the vegetation cover. Digital image processing and geographical information systems techniques were employed, together with local knowledge, high resolution imagery and expert consultation, to compile a cartographic map product.Results The TREES Vegetation Map of Central Africa has been shown to be strongly correlated with the FAO Forest Resources Assessment for 1990. Comparison with other map sources indicates that the map contains greater spatial detail and is more consistent than conventionally compiled maps. The conventional maps however, contain more thematic information content relating to vegetation type.Main conclusions The map improves our stale of knowledge of the vegetation cover of Central Africa and presents the most consistent and spatially detailed view yet published at this scale. Thematic information content on forest type is limited but should be improved in the near future with the inclusion of data from new satellite sensors. This first version of the map and future planned updates should provide an important input for regional stratification and planning purposes for forest resources, biodiversity and climate studies.

    Abstract: Many forest species can be found in understory vegetation of old plantation plots, despite the fact that the native vegetation was a poor savanna growing on highly nonfertile sandy soils. The aim of the present paper is to describe the changes that occur in the environmental conditions when savanna is planted with fast-growing trees, and is particularly concerned with vegetation and soil macrofauna. The study was carried out in industrial eucalyptus plantations, and in experimental Acacia and pine plantations. Most plots were located on sandy soil, but some measurements were also carried out on clay soil planted with the same species in order to assess the influence of soil type.A strong correlation was shown between the age of the eucalyptus trees and the percentage of forest species in undergrowth, emphasizing the progressive change from savanna vegetation towards forest vegetation.Biomass and density of macrofauna were very low in both sandy and clayey savanna soils, total biomass being 3.3 and 5.8 g/m(2) respectively. Soil macrofauna became more important as the age of plantations increased, and biomass reached 29 g/m(2) in the 20-year-old eucalyptus plot on sandy soil, and 74 g/m(2) in 26-year-old eucalyptus plantation on clay soil, compared to 33 g/m(2) in the natural forest plot on sandy soil; however, frequency of occurrence and number of taxa were lower in old eucalyptus plot as compared to forest. Large differences in the abundance of macrofauna were observed in relation to planted species. Acacia was most favourable to soil macrofauna, with a total biomass of 60 g/m(2) on sandy soil and many taxa present. Pine plantations had a poor macrofauna and several taxa were lacking, particularly in the sandy soil.Total macrofauna frequency was significantly correlated with the percentage of forest species in understory vegetation. Both were correlated with soil pH and soil organic-matter content. The results suggest that soil organic matter and litter quality are of main importance in changing the above- and below-ground habitat in plantations. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.

    Abstract: Eastern lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla graueri) are the least studied of the three gorilla subspecies, particularly at the molecular level. We sequenced an internal region of the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome oxidase subunit II (COII) region and a hypervariable portion of the mitochondrial DNA control region (D-loop) from wild gorillas in both the montane and lowland habitats of Kahuzi-Biega National Park, Democratic Republic of Congo, All individuals (n = 38) were identical at the COII region; this sequence indicates that diagnostic sites previously suggested for gorilla subspecies may be valid. Low variability was found within the D-loop region from a subset of the individuals (n = 15) sequenced for COII. Haplotype frequencies differed between the two habitats, suggesting a level of population subdivision that may have demographic consequences. These results also support the distinction of two distinct clades of gorillas comprised of western populations (G, g. gorilla) and eastern populations (G. g. graueri and G. g. beringei). Future management of Kahuzi-Biega National Park should ensure that sufficient habitat remains to prevent further genetic isolation of gorillas in the montane section of the park.

    Abstract: There is a growing recognition of the importance of transboundary shared natural resources. However, with limited resources, international policymakers need to be able to prioritize regions before allocating resources and addressing transboundary problems. River basins are perhaps the most natural transboundary division and, as such, provide an ecological framework for environmental assessments. The health of watersheds that are divided by political boundaries are at particular risk due to differential land management practices within each watershed. In Africa, more than any other continent, over 60% of the geographical area is a transboundary water-shed. In this article, a comparative study of the five major basins in Africa-the Congo, Chad, Nile, Niger, and Zambezi-has been carried out using consistent geospatial data sets at l-km resolution. Population, land cover type, and protected areas were used to assess the current status, characteristic differences, and impending pressure on river basin resources for each watershed. In addition, a focused study within the Nile River basin is used to compare the particular differences between countries.

    Abstract: The human and simian strains of Lon loci microfilariae are morphologically identical even though their periodicities vary. When using primate models (,Mandrillus sphinx) of human loaisis for vaccination trials, the absence of any ongoing simian L. loci infection must be demonstrated. Nested primers derived from a human strain of L. loa (targeted on the repeat 3 region of the gene encoding the 15 kDa polyprotein: 15r3) amplified at 366 bp sequence from simian L. loa genomic DNA and blood lysates from mandrills infected with simian L. loa. This nested-PCR assay has been tested on 12 amicrofilaremic (AMF) mandrills (without filarial microfilariae) and was positive in four mandrills. The nested-PCR product derived from simian L. loa genomic DNA and from three of four AMF mandrills has been sequenced. No difference was observed between the four sequences, which, in addition, were 99.18% identical to the 15r3 of human L. loa. Therefore, the 15r3 sequence is conserved within human and simian L. loa. These results suggest that the four PCR-pusitive mandrills without circulating microfilariae had occult simian L. loa infections. The study demonstrates the ability of a nested-PCR assay to identify animals naturally infected with simian L. loa.

    Abstract: Hunting of wild animals is an important component of household economies in the Congo Basin. Results from the growing corpus of quantitative studies show that: a) bushmeat remains the primary source of animal protein for the majority of Congo Basin families; b) bushmeat hunting can constitute a significant source of revenue for forest families; c) bushmeat consumption by low density populations living in the forest may be sustainable at present; d) demand for bushmeat by growing numbers of urban consumers has created a substantial market for bushmeat that is resulting in a halo of defaunation around population centres, and may be driving unsustainable levels of hunting, even in relatively isolated regions; and e) large bodied animals with low reproductive rates are most susceptible to over-exploitation compared with more r-selected species that apparently can tolerate relatively intensive hunting (Mangel et al. 1996). As urban populations continue to grow and economies revitalise, unless action is taken to alter the demand for, and the supply of bushmeat, the forests of the Congo Basin will be progressively stripped of certain wildlife species, risking their extirpation or extinction, and the loss of values they confer to local economies. Consequently, it is essential that a) logging companies are encouraged or coerced not to facilitate bushmeat hunting and transportation in their concessions, b) we develop a better understanding of the elasticity of bushmeat demand, c) that pilot bushmeat substitution projects are supported and their impact on demand evaluated, and d) social marketing activities are put in place to attempt to direct consumer preferences for animal protein away from bushmeat species that are particularly susceptible to over-exploitation.

    Abstract: Projected rates of agricultural clearing in the Ituri Forest of north-eastern Democratic Republic of Congo range from 0 to 0.1 per cent per year and suggest that deforestation for subsistence agriculture is not an immediate threat to the integrity of the Okapi Wildlife Reserve (OWR). If the human population continues to grow at over 3 per cent per annum, and bushmeat continues to be a major source of income for rural communities, subsistence-level exploitation of bushmeat may, however, not be sustainable. This paper proposes management approaches that address the demand for and supply of bushmeat, which are targeted at those political districts within the OWR where hunting is the greatest threat to populations of bushmeat species. These management approaches are designed to help conserve the Ituri's natural resources without compromising the health and income security of rural communities.

    Abstract: Differences in distribution and density between gorillas and chimpanzees are reconsidered with special reference to population structure. Both ecological and social factors influencing population structure are compared between species and between habitats within species. Gorillas and chimpanzees respond differently to a decline in food quality, such as fruit scarcity: gorillas change diet and decrease range, while chimpanzees do not change diet but may expand range. These responses result in different effects on their grouping patterns. For gorillas the dispersed distribution and reduction of range size decreases the rate of inter-unit encounters and female transfer. The concentration of social units increases the rate of aggressive contact between units and stimulates female transfer. Social units of gorillas may crowd or disperse in order to attain the optimal density. This tendency may result in similar densities of gorillas across habitats. By contrast, the distribution patterns or range size may not affect inter-unit relationships of chimpanzees. Within a single unit-group, various reproductive strategies are adopted by both sexes. Independent travel of females and flexible grouping patterns enable them to survive at very low density in extraordinary large ranges. Density and inter-unit relationships are good criteria for a healthy population of gorillas, while the size of unit-group and inter-individual relationships are good criteria for chimpanzees. Conservation planners should consider these differences for sympatric and allopatric survival in these species.
