    The black and rufous sengi Rhynchocyon petersi is restricted to the Eastern ArcMountains and coastal forests of East Africa and considered vulnerable because ofhabitat fragmentation and degradation. Coastal forests are ...
  • Broecke, B. V.; Borremans, B.; Mariën, J.; Makundi, R. H .; Massawe, A. W.; Hughes, N. K.; Leirsa, H. (Current Zoology, 2017)
    Exploration and activity are often described as trade-offs between the fitness benefits of gathering information and resources, and the potential costs of increasing exposure to predators and parasites. More exploratory ...
  • Massawe, A. W.; Makundi, R. H.; Zhang, Z.; Mhamphi, G.; Liu, M.; Jun Li, H.; Belmain, S. R. (Journal of Pest Science., 2018)
    Rodent pest management traditionally relies on some form of lethal control. Developing effective fertility control for pest rodent species could be a major breakthrough particularly in the context of managing rodent ...
