Report of the 2011 Sengi expedition to Northern Mozambique




Sengis are members of the supercohort Afrotheria (www.afrotheria.net), which represents an ancient group of mammals with a common African ancestry that evolved over 100 million years ago. The Afrotheria includes seven distinct, but phylogenetically related groups (elephants, sea cows, hyraxes, sengis, the aardvark, tenerecs, and golden -moles), which together represent nearly a third of extant orders of mammals. However, they only contribute about 77 of the approximately 1260 species of mammals found in Africa and Madagascar. Thus, with relatively few species extinctions, entire groups of mammals would cease to exist, and therefore it is especially important to document their diversity.
