Project Mount Nilo '95: Discoveries in the East Usambara and Nguu Mountains, Northern Tanzania

p 90-95

In July-October 1995, Project Mount Nilo '95, a conservation expedition organised from the University of Cambridge, UK, surveyed forest birds and mammals in northern Tanzania. The project assessed the ecological requirements and threats to the survival of restricted-range and globally threatened bird species in remnant patches of submontane forest in the East Usambara and Nguu Mountains. We recorded a total of 130 bird species, including five threatened and three near-threatened species, and ten endemic to the forests of the Eastern Arc Mountains. We also recorded 22 species of mammals, two of which are considered threatened. N. Seddon et al
