Publications & Reports

This report contains information about bamboo population structure, disturbance factors affecting bamboo forest regeneration and the management options for the recovery of the dwindling bamboo stock in Echuya Central Forest Reserve.
The project “Sustaining and Strengthening Conservation Capacity by Anticipating and Preparing for Change in the Greater Virunga Landscape” has been successful in advancing the knowledge, capacity and preparedness required for long-term conservation in the Greater Virunga Landscape.
Information on Human-Wildlife Conflict management experiences and expertise of the various stakeholders from the different sites is scattered in published scholarly literature, unpublished documents and reports, some already archived or obscure, or the information is “stored” in the great minds of i

Biogeographical theory predicts that restricted-range species should typically occur at lower densities than ecologically similar, but geographically widespread species.
Understanding species distributions, habitat requirements, and population trends is helpful for implementing effective conservation. But expense often prevents such evaluations.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park are two afromontane forests considered as extremely important biodiversity areas, with global significance, due to their population of highly endangered Mountain Gorilla.
Effective management of anthropogenic threats is key to sustaining biological diversity in protected areas.
