Faunal Notes from the Chimanimani Mountains, based on a Collection of Birds and Mammals from the Mucrera River, Mozambique




The Chimanimani Mountains lie along the central part of the frontier between Mozambique and Rhodesia. The montane fauna of these mountains has been studied by expeditions from the University of Cape Town (see Masterson & Child, 1959; also Mitchell et al., 1958) and the Prince Edward School, Salisbury, Rhodesia (see Siemers, 1967). Hodgson (1971) has collated the avifaunal data and Jackson (1973) has provided some additional records of the birds and mammals in the central area. Nevertheless, much remains to be learned of the Chimanimani fauna, especially on the Mozambique side of the mountains and particularly in relation to seasonal altitudinal movement.
