INFLUENCE OF FRUIT AVAILABILITY ON MACRONUTRIENT AND ENERGY INTAKE BY FEMALE CHIMPANZEES.

Afr J Ecol 2019 Dec 14;57(4):454-465. Epub 2019 Jun 14.

Department of Human Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University.

Daily energy intake of adult female mammals is influenced by environmental conditions and physiological requirements, including reproduction. We examined the effects of fruit availability on macronutrient and metabolisable energy intake by adult female chimpanzees () of the Kanyawara community in Kibale National Park, Uganda from January 2014 through June 2015. Drupe fruits were abundant for four months, whereas the other fourteen months were dominated by fig fruits. Read More

Sap flow variation in selected riparian woodland species in the Okavango Delta, Botswana.

In the tropical Okavango Delta, transpiration by trees is an important process partly responsible for maintaining the basin as a freshwater environment. Quantification of evapotranspiration from terrestrial landforms of the delta, fringed by riparian woodlands, is one of the main contributors to uncertainty in current hydrological modelling. We investigated sap flow of common trees in the distal, mid- and upper delta in July-August 2012, November-December 2012 and February-April 2013 using the compensation heat pulse velocity method.

Carbon pools of an intact forest in Gabon.

Afr J Ecol 2012 Dec 2;50(4):414-427. Epub 2012 May 2.

Institute of Silviculture, Department of Forest and Soil Sciences, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Peter Jordan Strasse 82, A-1190, Vienna, Austria.

Quantitative and qualitative loss of tropical forests prompted international policy agendas to slow down forest loss through reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD)+, ensuring carbon offset payments to developing countries. So far, many African countries lack reliable forest carbon data and monitoring systems as required by REDD+. In this study, we estimate the carbon stocks of a naturally forested landscape unaffected by direct human impact. Read More
