  • A checklist of the mammals of Rwanda

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Zarek S. Cockar
      Pages: 1 - 17
      Abstract: Despite its small geographical size and its tumultuous recent political history, Rwanda is home to a diverse mammal fauna. Having reviewed 53 published books and papers, including the six volumes of Mammals of Africa, I have developed a simple checklist of all mammals recorded within Parc National des Volcans, Akagera National Park, Nyungwe National Park, and along the eastern shore of Lake Kivu. With a few exceptions, almost all of Rwanda’s mammal species are represented in these four areas. A total of 205 species were identified within these four areas, though the presence of some species may be in doubt, some may become locally extirpated, and a few additional species may be found with more ground surveys.

  • First records of the millipede genus Eviulisoma (Diplopoda: Polydesmida:
           Paradoxosomatidae) from Burundi, with descriptions of two new species

      Authors: Didier Vandenspiegel, Dieudonné Ntashavu
      Pages: 19 - 26
      Abstract: From 2003-2008, during soil zoological surveys in the Kibira National Park, Burundi, millipedes of the genus Eviulisoma were collected. Samples of E. cylindricum and E. silvaticum were recovered in addition to those containing two new species. Eviulisoma kirama sp. nov. and Eviulisoma nzigidahera sp. nov. are described and additional records, illustrations, and descriptive notes are given for the other two species. A key for the Burundian species and a distribution map for all species of the genus is presented.

  • A contribution to the avifauna of the Acacia woodlands in Burunge Wildlife
           management area, northern Tanzania

      Authors: Chacha Werema
      Pages: 27 - 36
      Abstract: Wildlife management areas (WMAs) have been used as a wildlife conservation model with a dual purpose: improving wildlife conservation and livelihoods of rural communities. While some WMAs such as Burunge WMA have been found to support species-rich and abundant wildlife communities, particularly large mammals, some wildlife taxa, including birds, have not been thoroughly studied. This study reports on the bird species (as well as their relative abundances) found in Acacia woodlands in Burunge WMA. From 106, 20-species lists, 145 species were observed, including 22 out of 77 Somali – Masai biome-restricted species found in Tanzania. The results suggest that the Acacia woodlands in Burunge WMA provide habitats for a diversity of birds. Given the diverse avifauna, the Burunge WMA remains as an important birding site within the Tarangire – Manyara ecosystem, and therefore, improving awareness will not only make the area potential for avitourism, but also encourage further avian research.
