Kenya

The increasing utilization of forest products puts pressure to the Tana River Mangabey (Cercocebus galeritus) population and its habitat. The project will target selected riverine forest fragments within the Tana River Primate National Reserve (TRPNR), which are utilized by the local communities.

Cameroon

The Kom-Wum Forest Reserve (80km2) was created in 1951 in the North West Region of Cameroon (Sunderland & Mannaseh 2003). Since its creation, an increase in human population growth in the villages in and around the reserve has caused many local people to encroach into the reserve to exploit forest resources for their livelihood (Kah 2015).

Chile

In this project, a model based on the characteristics of the species will be used (response traits to environmental conditions, coincidence traits that allow plant-frugivorous interaction and functional effect traits of frugivores), to understand the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning (BEF) and plant-frugivore interactions through different sequential processes that lead t
