Introduction
Yvonne A. de Jong is co-leader of the Eastern Africa Primate Diversity and Conservation Program, Nanyuki, Kenya. Main research focus is the biogeography, diversity and conservation of eastern Africa's primates and several other groups of large mammals, including the warthogs, hyrax, springhare and dik diks. Member of the National Primate Task Force of Kenya, and various IUCN/SSC Specialist Groups (including primates, wild pigs and afrotheria). More information, publications and photographic maps (primates, warthogs and hyrax) on www.wildsolutions.nl or see www.lolldaiga.com

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...
Article
Full-text available
Estimating population densities and their trends over time is essential for understanding primate ecology and for guiding conservation efforts. From 2011 through to 2019, we counted two guenon species during seasonal road transect surveys in Lake Manyara National Park: the Tanzania-endemic Manyara monkey Cercopithecus mitis manyaraensis (Internatio...
Article
Full-text available
African wild pigs have a contentious evolutionary and biogeographic history. Until recently, desert warthog (Phacochoerus aethiopicus) and common warthog (P. africanus) were considered a single species. Molecular evidence surprisingly suggested they diverged at least 4.4 million years ago, and possibly outside of Africa. We sequenced the first whol...

In 2020, a new subspecies was described in the Cercopithecus mitis complex, the Manyara monkey C. m. manyaraensis, Butynski & De Jong, 2020. The internal taxonomy of this species complex is still debated, and the phylogenetic relationships among the taxa are unclear. Here we provide the first mitochondrial sequence data for C. m. manyaraensis to de...
Chapter
The Colobines are a group of Afroeurasian monkeys that exhibit extraordinary behavioural and ecological diversity. With long tails and diverse colourations, they are medium-sized primates, mostly arboreal, that are found in many different habitats, from rain forests and mountain forests to mangroves and savannah. Over the last two decades, our unde...

Article
Full-text available
Desert warthog Phacochoerus aethiopicus delamerei and common warthog Phacochoerus africanus are widespread and locally common in the Horn of Africa and Kenya, east of the Eastern Rift Valley. It is of particular interest that these two taxa, the only two extant species in the genus Phacochoerus, occur in sympatry in some regions. Within Kenya, symp...

The classification of most mammalian orders and families is under debate and the number of species is likely greater than currently recognized. Improving taxonomic knowledge is crucial, as biodiversity is in rapid decline. Morphology is a source of taxonomic knowledge, and geometric morphometrics applied to two dimensional (2D) photographs of anato...

Article
Like other nocturnal primates, many species of galago (Galagidae) are phenotypi-cally cryptic, making their taxonomic status difficult to resolve. Recent taxonomic work has disentangled some of the confusion. This has resulted in an increase in the number of recognised galago species. The most widespread galago species, and indeed the most widespre...

Article
Vocal repertoires and call structure can provide insights into the behaviour and evolution of species, as well as aid in taxonomic classification. Nocturnal primates have large vocal repertoires. This suggests that acoustic communication plays an important role in their life histories. Little is known about the behavioural context or the intraspeci...

Introduction Laikipia County (ca. 9,700 km²), central Kenya, comprises a highly diverse landscape of grassland, bushland, woodland, dry forest, moist forest, riverine forest, wetland, and farmland. Mean annual rainfall ranges from 40 cm in the north to 120 cm in the southeast and southwest. Although mean annual rainfall is >80 cm in the southeast a...

Kenya has a rich mammalian fauna. We reviewed recently published books and papers including the six volumes of Mammals of Africa to develop an up-to-date annotated checklist of all mammals recorded from Kenya. A total of 390 species have been identified in the country, including 106 species of rodents, 104 species of bats, 63 species of even-toed u...

Project
We are a group of researchers, students, and alumni interested in primate conservation and that are linked to the MSc in Primate Conservation at Oxford Brookes University in the UK. As a network we aim to improve our knowledge of primates, their conservation needs, and to assess and implement actions and policies that will benefit primates, their habitats, and the people that live side-by-side with primates.
Project
The Lolldaiga Hills Research Programme (LHRP) was initiated on 1st August 2013 as part of the research arm of the Sustainability Centre Eastern Africa (SCEA). The goal of the LHRP is to maintain, if not enhance, the conservation values of the LHCL over the long-term, while allowing for the sustainable use of the landscape’s natural resources. The LHRP will (1) establish climatic, ecological, and land-use baselines, and document and evaluate climatic, ecological, and land-use change, its direction (trend), its extent, and its significance (impact), (2) undertake and support applied ecological research, particularly on threatened species and habitats, and (3) conduct and support research relevant to the sustainable use of, and reclamation of, natural resources.
Project
The Eastern Africa Primate Diversity and Conservation Program is a long term research program based in Kenya. The program, founded in 2003, focuses mainly on primate biogeography, diversity, taxonomy and conservation in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. However, the program also looks into the biogeography of other African mammals including the desert warthog, various antilope species and the African golden cat.
