Historical ecology and biogeography of the Nubian Ibex in Egypt

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 131(2):159-172.

Historical ecology and biogeography is a field of research that necessitates the compilation of data in relation to the presence of animals, in a country or in a specific region, in order to retrace their distribution over a long period of time. This paper presents the historical ecology and biogeography of the Nubian Ibex in Egypt from 1800 up to today. Three maps showing the location of this animal in the Sinai and the Eastern Desert are established: the XIXth century, the first half of the XXth century, and the second half of the XXth century. It appears that man's hunting principally caused the disappearance of this caprinae from some part of its Egyptian area.
