    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Populations of many vulture species have undergone substantial declines. In Africa, 82% are threatened and although research on vultures has increased, the biology and ecology of several species is still poorly known. The Palm-nut Vulture Gypohierax angolensis has peculiar ecological...

    Predatory pelagic fishes of the Bijagós Archipelago (Guinea-Bissau) show high overlap in diets dominated by sardinella

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Knowledge of trophic interactions between the key components of marine communities is required to understand food-web dynamics and develop ecosystem-based management approaches. In West Africa, where fisheries sustain the livelihoods of a significant part of the human population, this understanding...
  5. Nest-site characteristics and aspects of the breeding biology of the endangered Timneh Parrot <em>Psittacus timneh</em> in Guinea-Bissau

    Nest-site characteristics and aspects of the breeding biology of the endangered Timneh Parrot <em>Psittacus timneh</em> in Guinea-Bissau

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Timneh Parrots Psittacus timneh are endemic to the moist forests of West Africa. Concerns over rapid declines in populations due to overharvesting for the pet trade and forest loss prompted the species’ categorisation as Endangered on the IUCN Red List...
