Virtual Library

The BIOFUND Virtual Library is an online archive of information on Mozambique’s biodiversity, organized along the lines suggested by the Convention on Biodiversity’s Clearing House Mechanism. The Virtual Library will strive to make available all the documents, studies, reports, articles, educational and communications materials, maps and digital files that have been produced, to serve as a repository of our collective institutional memory as a conservation community. The usefulness of the Virtual Library will improve the more we share amongst ourselves.

Most authors recognize six baboon species: hamadryas (Papio hamadryas), Guinea (Papio papio), olive (Papio anubis), yellow (Papio cynocephalus), chacma (Papio ursinus), and Kinda (Papio kindae). However, there is still debate regarding the taxonomic status, phylogenetic relationships, and the amount of gene flow occurring between species. Here, we present ongoing research on baboon morphological diversity in Gorongosa National Park (GNP), located in central Mozambique, south of the Zambezi River, at the southern end of the East African Rift System. The park exhibits outstanding ecological diversity and hosts more than 200 baboon troops. Gorongosa National Park baboons have previously been classified as chacma baboons (P. ursinus). In ...

TRAFFIC International, Cambridge, United Kingdom


In recent years, several studies have highlighted concerns about an emerging and increasing trade in African Lion parts and derivatives both domestically within African countries, and internationally to Asian markets. However, the extent and impact of this trade on lion populations in Africa remains undocumented across most of their range. African Lion numbers are in decline primarily due to anthropogenic influences such as retaliatory killing by humans, depletion of their prey-base due to the bushmeat trade, habitat loss and conversion, and poorly regulated trophy hunting. Understanding the additional impact of trade on wild lion populations is critical for current and future conservation of the species. In this study..

Contemporarily, there has been a growing interest in the role played by Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) towards improving livelihoods among rural populaces. This has been facilitated by the fact that communities living close to forest solely rely on NTFPs at a great extent for their livelihoods and thus, any effort in conserving such resources as a requirement in understanding how the host communities get to interact with them. The study employed a multistage sampling technique including proportionate and convenience sampling. A sample of 377 households was surveyed using a questionnaire. Key informant interviews with NTFP traders were conducted as well as observation on the commonly used NTFPs. Univariate and linear logistic ...

Biological Conservation


The bush-meat poaching crisis is a significant threat to biodiversity in tropical forest and savannah biomes, however its impacts on wild animal populations are often difficult to quantify across large spatial scales. Using data from 17 camera trap survey sites in southern Africa, within the Kavango-Zambezi (KAZA) Transfrontier Conservation Area, we show it is possible to assess the demographic impact of wire-snare bush-meat poaching on large carnivore populations, distribution of snaring hotspots and drivers of bush-meat poaching prevalence across this landscape. Results suggest that mortalities in snares may have significant demographic effects on lions (Panthera leo) and spotted hyaenas (Crocuta crocuta) with evidence for population...

Tropical Conservation Science


The continued existence of large carnivores such as the lion (Panthera leo Linnaeus, 1758) outside of protected areas is uncertain. Such populations are the least studied and the most rapidly declining. Mozambique contains roughly 8% of Africa’s lions, nearly half of which persist outside of protected areas. We estimated the distribution and abundance of lions in an unprotected section of northwest Tete Province and identified potential threats to the local persistence of lion populations. Structured interviews of local people indicated lion presence and human-lion conflict. We used interview results and anthropogenic land uses defined via Google Earth to delineate lion range digitally. We estimated population size using two methods ...

In most places around the world, people are an integral, sometimes dominant, part of the environment. This has two implications. First, a key requirement for sustainability success lies in finding ways to meet the dual goals of conserving nature and providing for the well-being and quality of life of people. Second, while conservation and stewardship certainly require considering the problems created by human impacts, they can also draw on the considerable potential of humans to solve a range of environmental challenges. Global sustainability requires corresponding responses at a global level.

Sexual and seasonal variation in the diet and foraging behaviour of a sexually dimorphic carnivore, the honey badger (Mellivora capensis)C. M. Begg1,2∗, K. S. Begg2, J. T. Du Toit1 and M. G. L. Mills2002


N/A








The honey badger, or ratel, Mellivora capensis has not been well studied despite its extensive distribution. As part of the first detailed study, visual observations of nine habituated free-living individuals (five females, four males) were used to investigate seasonal, annual and sexual differences in diet and foraging behaviour. Theory predicts that generalist predators ‘switch’ between alternative prey species depending on which prey species are currently most abundant, and diet breadth expands in response to decreased availability of preferred food types. There were significant seasonal differences in the consumption of eight prey categories related to changes in prey availability but no seasonal differences in food intake per kg of bod

Tagged shark species included bull sharks (n = 34), tiger sharks (n = 18), grey reef sharks (n = 8), blacktip sharks (n = 6) and scalloped hammerhead sharks (n = 3). In addition, we deployed satellite tags on tiger sharks (n = 18) and bull sharks (n = 25) to investigate their habitat use outside of the acoustic receiver array. Many of these sharks showed high fidelity seasonal habitat use in the PPMR with the majority of sharks present in the PPMR during the summer months. Between periods of residency in the PPMR tagged sharks undertook largescale migrations as far as Madagascar, northern Mozambique and the western ...

Baixo São João is a rocky massif in the northern section of the Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve, southern Mozambique. A benthic survey was conducted on the reef in July 2015 to investigate the merits of protecting it within a sanctuary. This involved point intercept analysis of photo-quadrat transects recorded in the northern, central and southern parts of the reef on the reef top and its inshore and offshore slopes. The coral community on the reef proved to be relatively rich and uniform within all reef zones, but with no unique or over-vulnerable species. Hard corals were predominant with a mean cover of 32.3%; the mean cover of soft corals was 12.8%. Little coral damage was evident and, despite not having any special attributes ...

Wild Miombo woodlands mushrooms are a largely ignored nutrition-boosting food and source of income among rural communities of Southern Africa. A survey was conducted in the Gweru, Kwekwe, Shurugwi and Mvuma districts of Zimbabwe to establish the importance of this natural resource in household poverty reduction.Gathered quantities and sales realized were recorded through structured personal interviews targeting two thirds of gatherers with equal numbers of male and female respondents and one key informant in each site. Results showed that of 14 gathered mushroom species (orders Cantharellales, Amanitales and Termitomycetes) across all sites, five species were of varying commercial value. Amanita loosii was the most traded and the only on...

The mushroom hunters, collectors, processors and retailers from the local communities in Njombe and Iringa regions were interviewed. The information on indigenous mycological knowledge, collecting and retailing of wild edible mushrooms in Benna and Hehe communities were gathered. The wild edible mushrooms were collected in the Miombo woodland surrounding six villages during rainy season in January 2014. From the survey, mushroom collection and selling was gender oriented dominated by women at 70% and 93.5% respectively. Moreover, it was fou...

Global Ecology and Conservation


Protected areas are the cornerstone of in situ conservation and their effective management is critical for maintaining biodiversity in the long term. In East Africa (Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda) there are 1,776 protected areas (including 186 “strict” protected areas with IUCN management categories I through IV) covering more than 27% of its terrestrial area. Here we document the extent to which East African protected areas encompass ecoregions and endemic terrestrial vertebrate taxa, and using new land conversion data derived from medium to high spatial resolution satellite images, we assess how they have been encroached upon by agriculture and other land use. We find that East African protected areas cover 86% of...

Biological Conservation


The fencing of protected areas (PAs) is highly controversial, and much remains unknown about the associated financial, ecological, and social impacts. We surveyed experts on 63 fenced and 121 unfenced PAs across 23 African countries to assess the advantages and drawbacks of fencing. Where fences exist, they are largely supported and widely viewed as effective at demarcating PA boundaries and mitigating human-wildlife conflicts. However, most fences were insufficiently funded, which limited their ability to contain conflict-prone species like elephants and lions. Fences were also frequently vandalised and caused numerous conflicts with local communities. We documented for the first time the distribution of and support for fencing in PAs...

Does traditional and advanced guarding reduce crop losses due to wildlife? A comparative analysis from Africa and AsiaEva M. Grossa, Bibhuti P. Lahkar, Naresh Subedi, Vincent R. Nyirenda, Laly L. Lichtenfeld, Oliver Jakoby2019

Journal for Nature Conservation


Crop damage caused by herbivorous wildlife species on farms located within conservation landscapes, is a driver of human-wildlife conflict (HWC). Guarding of farms, whereby farmers spend the night out in the fields, in areas adjacent to protected areas is, therefore, very common in many African and Asian countries. Furthermore, guarding is often combined with other crop protection measures, but little is known about the efficacy of these measures. We examined the effect that different traditional and advanced crop protection measures (active and passive guarding strategies, barriers and combinations of measures) had on the magnitude of damaged crops. For this, we examined the cost of crop damage caused by a total of 20 wildlife species...

AUTOMATIC TYPE CLASSIFICATION AND SPEAKER IDENTIFICATION OF AFRICAN ELEPHANT VOCALIZATIONSPatrick J. Clemins & Michael T. Johnson2012

This paper presents systems for automatically classifying elephant vocalizations by type and for identifying the speaker of a given vocalization. The method applies techniques from the speech processing field, with modifications, to elephant vocalizations. The features used for classification are 12 Mel-Frequency Cepstral Coefficients computed using a chirp Z-transform to interpolate among the lower frequencies. A Hidden Markov Model is trained for each type of vocalization and vocalizations are classified using leave-one-out verification. Using this system, initial classification accuracies of 77.0% for type classification and 72.2% for speaker identification resulted. These systems represent the initial stages of a universal analysis...

Rail Elephant Conflict (REC) has been rise in the various regions in India and across the world. Large numbers of elephant where died in train accident .Tracking of elephant is difficult due to their size and nature of movement. By using acoustic sensor it helps to track the elephant vocalization. Acoustic sensor deal with existing methodologies through their effectiveness and accuracy in monitoring elephant sound without cause any harm to them .while, at the same time, helping the elephant from death. These papers address the survey of elephant tracking.
