Article
Two species of warthog are currently widely recognised, the poorly known desert warthog Phacochoerus aethiopicus and the widely distributed common warthog Phacochoerus africanus. Spatial data for both species were collected during field surveys and from the literature, museums, colleagues, naturalists, local experts, and online resources to assess...
Chapter
This chapter offers a bird's-eye view of the park's geography, sectors and habitat types with their associated flora and fauna. It provides an overall description of Albert NP with its main features in the colonial era: a unique conservatory, a field with innumerable aspects to be studied, and a fascinating place to be visited by naturalists and to...
Chapter
This section covers the national context of the conservation history in DR Congo and the creation of Garamba. This chapter on early Belgian Congo days retraces the creation of the Institut des Parcs Nationaux du Congo Belge, its values, objectives and achievements, as well as its pioneers.

Listed as Least Concern as the species is relatively widespread, sometimes locally abundant with a high reproductive potential, and, although it is subject to hunting in many parts of its range, it is not believed to be declining at a rate that would merit listing either as Near Threatened or in a threatened category. However, it is acknowledged th...

There are two widely recognized species of warthog: the Cape warthog, Phacochoerus aethiopicus (Pallas, 1766), and the common warthog, P. africanus (Gmelin, 1788). On this basis, it has been assumed that the first warthog specimen arrived in Europe in about 1766. This paper documents the discovery of a common warthog skull in the Tradescant Collect...

Warthogs without incisors were described from the Cape of Good Hope as Phacochoerus aethiopicus and warthogs possessing incisors were first found in Senegal and later named Phacochoerus africanus. During the second half of the 18th century and the whole of the 19th century, the majority of workers recognised these two taxa as distinct. Twentieth ce...

The Somali warthog, Phacochoerus aethiopicus delamerei, is the surviving relative of the Cape warthog, P. a. aethiopicus, which formerly inhabited Cape Province but became extinct in the last century. It is only recently that these two subspecies of Phacochoerus aethiopicus have been restored to the status of a species - the 'desert warthog' - dist...

Two species of warthogs (Phacochoerus), differing by the number of functional incisors, were described in the Holocene fossil record: the common warthog (P. africanus), widespread in sub-Sahar-an Africa, and the Cape, or desert warthog (P. aethiopicus), which was considered extinct since 1896, but was recently rediscovered in East Africa by morphol...

Zaïre is Africa’s third largest country, after Algeria and Sudan, and it contains over half of the continent’s tropical moist forests. The Salonga National Park is the largest rain forest park in the world (36,000 sq. km) and the Virunga National Park certainly supports a greater biological diversity than any other single protected area in Africa....

Project
Here we propose three main actions to contribute to the conservation of the giant forest hog in a set of three protected areas in Western Uganda (Queen Elizabeth National Park, Kibale National Park and Toro-Semliki Wildlife Reserve) that are among the last strongholds of the population of this species in Eastern Africa. The three actions are composed of ecological research by estimating the population relative abundance, group size and space need; social research by realizing workshops, interviews and meetings with local stakeholders; and conservation measures that includes supporting anti-poaching patrols with equipment and supporting some families in raising domestic animals. These actions will take place in the three protected areas and in adjacent key communities to reduce poaching and raise awareness about this threatened species.
Project
The rediscovery of Ph. aethiopicus in N Kenya, Ethiopia and Somalia prompted a detailed investigation on the respective distribution of the two species of warthog, with a focus on their status, habitat, diet and behaviour. Areas of sympatry help determine their distinct ecological niche and possible interspecific interactions. Joint research project with Drs Y. de Jong and T. Butynski.
