The Udzungwa Mountains, Tanzania, are among the most important biodiversity hotspots in the world, with a high level of biological endemism. The primary objective of this study is to identify those habitat parameters that correlate most strongly with the population density and demography of the two endemic and threatened primates living in the Udzungwa, namely the Udzungwa red colobus (Procolobus gordonorum) and the Sanje mangabey (Cercocebus galeritus sanjei).
These data will increase our understanding of habitat selectivity, ecological requirements, and impacts of human activities on these species, and will be used to design appropriate conservation management plans for these endangered species.
