The densities of natural populations of tropical ungulates - as well as their structure and dynamics - are so poorly known that it seems worthwhile to put on record here some figures obtained during the last five years by the Institut des Parcs Nationaux du Congo in three strict natural reserves of eastern Congo and Rwanda. These studies were initiated in 1957 with the aim of following the evolution of the mammalian populations in three different types of open environments free from any human intervention (with the exception of bush fires spreading from surrounding areas).
