Volume 1997 Number 1
  • ISSN : 1011-5498



Studies of wildebeest Connochaetes taurinus ecology (1975-78) concluded that human activities, notably fencing off of former migration routes, eliminated the ability of wildebeest to migrate. This reduced a population, estimated at 25 000 in 1955, to 3 790 when fencing of Etosha was completed in 1973.
