Combining local knowledge and occupancy analysis for a rapid assessment of forest elephants in Cameroon’s timber production forests

Abstract:

Information on the distribution and abundance of forest elephants must be available in order to appropriately allocate limited resources and set conservation goals. However, monitoring at large scales in forest habitats is complicated, expensive and time consuming. This study explores the potential of applying interview-based occupancy analysis as a tool for the rapid assessment of the distribution and relative abundance of forest elephants (Loxodonta cyclotis) in the eastern region of Cam...
