Duikers of Africa
Masters of the African forest floor
There are sixteen duikers in sub-Saharan Afrika and there is hardly a forest patch that does not have at least one species of duiker in it.
In some areas of West Africa there are forests with at least seven species of duikers in them some of which are rare and endangered.
Duikers are not charismatic mammals like the elephant, rhino, gorilla or chimpanzee and because of their small size and secretive nature they have not received the attention they deserve.
This book on the duikers of Africa is intended to highlight the plight of the duikers and contains a detailed profile
on each of the sixteen species. The book also contains chapters on the evolution of the duikers, duikers in rock art, duiker
behaviour and a large section on duikers in the bushmeat trade, and it covers all of sub-Saharan Africa.
The field work alone took over 12 years to complete.
