Habitat selection by elephants in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, S.W Uganda

Publication overview

Elephants’ preference for certain habitats of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is discussed in relation to seasonality in plant production. Bamboo forest is favoured during the wet seasons because of the presence of young bamboo shoots. Chrysophyllum dominant mixed forest around Mubwindi Swamp is the best available habitat, especially during the dry periods
