A Survey of Abundance and Diversity of Avian Species ab 39.9 EURO In Pandam Wildlife Park and Surrounding Farmland in Pandam Nigeria
The importance of wildlife especially the vertebrates for game, tourism and medicine can not be over emphasized. Nature reserves are known to influence their locations. Increase in physical development is diminishing the habitat available for wild fauna. Inventory of the resources in relation to their habitat parameters would inform a better management of the resource. An assessment of the vertebrate diversity of Alabata Nature Reserve, South West Nigeria was carried out.Thryonomys swinderianus was the most abundant animal species while Daniellia oliveri was the most abundant plant species. Wild fire appears to be the greatest threat to the reserve.This has to be controlled for the reserve to achieve its full potentials.
Population Ecology of guenons with particular reference to six species common in Nigeria, the Mona Monkey (Cercopithecus mona), the Sclater Monkey (Cercopithecus scateri), the Putty-nosed Monkey (Cercopithecus nictitans ludio), the Nigerian White-throated Monkey (Cercopithecus erythrogaster pococki), the Red-eared Monkey (Cercopithecus erythrotis) and the Preuss's Monkey (Allochrocebus preussi preussi) was carried out in Afi Mountain Wildlife Sanctuary (AMWS) Boki local Government Area, Cross River State, using invasive and non invasive methods.
The Wildlife Management book constitutes the study of socio-ecology of Drill Monkeys in captivity. This endangered African primate's species is tremendously facing population reduction in the wild due to poaching and the cultivation of the rainforest by its inhabitants. These challenges necessitate the study of the species' behavioural ecology to enhance breeding for future relocation into the wild. Furthermore, the book explains the weaverbirds' ecology in the local farms and their destructive effect associated to their activities on agricultural crops, and how the farmers are responding to the pest upon the crop damage. Dr Melle Ekane Maurice was born in 15th October 1974 in Bangem, Cameroon. He holds a Ph.D in Wildlife Management from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria, and presently lectures Wildlife Management, Wildlife Conservation, Wildlife Ecology, and Wildlife Tourism in the Department of Environmental Science in the University of Buea, Cameroon.

On a global scale, there has been a growing concern regarding the pollution of aquatic ecosystems and its inherent unwholesome impact on wildlife and man.The present study focused on an urban reservoir,the Ikpoba reservoir, in Benin City, Nigeria, which was primarily established for the provision of drinking water to inhabitants of the City.The reservoir is also a source of fish for human consumption.Essentially,the study determined the concentrations of Cadmium(Cd), Manganese(Mn), Copper(Cu), Lead(Pb), Zinc(Zn) and Chromium(Cr) in Synodontis clarias (Linnaeus, 1766) and water from the aforementioned water body in order to ascertain the magnitude of impact by these heavy metals on the resources of the investigated ecosystem.
