Cambridge Ethiopia groundwater-forest expedition 1990

Mark Telfer

The park comprises typical river valley habitat, and the expedition aim was to produce inventories of the birds and mammals, with subsidiary observations of other faunal groups. Ornithological work produced a check list, and transect/point counts in order to compare two forest areas, one of which was subject to more human disturbance. Mammal surveys were done by trapping and transect counts, and collections were also made of flowering plants, butterflies, dragonflies, herpetiles and centipedes.

Project update: 16/8/96. This project worked on birds, mammals, plants, reptiles, dragonflies, butterflies and centipedes in Nechisar National Park, Ethiopia.
