Effects of habitat fragmentation on diversity of small mammals in Lulanda forest in Mufindi, Tanzania

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 135(S1):109-112.

The Lulanda forest cover a portion of the Udzungwa mountains in Mufindi district, Tanzania, ranging from 1480-1640 meters above sea level. The forest consists of three forest patches dominated by Parinari excelsa and a corridor between two of them that is being regenerated to a forest under the help of the Tanzania Forest Conservation Group (TFCG). A capture-mark-recapture Study was carried out to document the small mammal species found in Lulanda forest patches and corridor. There is a considerable difference in small mammal species composition between the montane forest and the corridor with a higher diversity in the corridor.
