Students provide insights into East African wildlife
Students funded by the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) have rediscovered a snake species, described two new invertebrate species, and demonstrated that local people directly benefit from conservation management.
The findings resulted from a small grant-funded postgraduate research programme in the Eastern Arc Mountains and Coastal Forests of Kenya and Tanzania. The results demonstrate that focused work by students can go a long way in contributing to knowledge for the conservation of biodiversity hotspots. …
Highlights of the research included the rediscovery of the Ornate Shovel Snout Snake Prosymna ornatissima, which had not been recorded in the Uluguru North Forests for over 80 years. An Elephant Shrew observed in the Boni-Dodori forest could be a new species unique to that site. Two new species of plant-inhabiting Tetranychlid [sic; tetranychid] mites were described; many of these mites have severe economic impacts on agriculture, so it is important to be able to identify them.
