Census of birds species of Benin from the inventory data in National Park of Pendjari

Latest version published by Laboratory of Forest Sciences (University of Abomey-Calavi) on Aug 1, 2017 Laboratory of Forest Sciences (University of Abomey-Calavi)

Data entered from an Engineer thesis that inventoried birds in National Park of Pendjari, in northen of Benin territory. The data were collected in 2004 and were mobilised in the framework of the project BID-AF2015-0044-SMA. The main point of this study was to collect all informations about them and to complete them with the inventory of mammals, birds and reptiles in order to propose the census sites as future Ramsar’s sites. Data were collected on some sites as : sacred’s ponds (mare sacrée), Diwouni’s pond, Tiabiga’s pond, Fogou’s pond and Bori’s pond, Bondjagou forest and Pendjari’s (Porga and Arly) and Magou’s rivers (Porga and flooded plain).

Project Data

The data mobilization is focused on bird species found in Benin. The main project activities are: (i) bird species data mobilization, which includes organization of meeting session on biodiversity data importance and their use, training sessions on data digitization and publishing, and digitization and publishing of bird occurrences using the spreadsheet of GBIF; (ii) application of biodiversity data for conservation, which includes training session on ecological niches modelling of species, identification of areas relevant for bird protection in Benin, and suggestion of strategies for bird species conservation in Benin.

Title Gathering of biodiversity data on bird species for their sustainable management in Benin
Identifier BID-AF2015-0044-SMA
Funding The project is funded by the Union European through Biodiversity Information Development (BID) Programme
Study Area Description Mobilization of data on bird species found in Benin
Design Description The project aims to contribute to the conservation of bird species in Benin through the enhancement of data availability on these species. Two mains goals to achieve: Goal 1: Increase available biodiversity data - Raise of the awareness on the importance of biodiversity data for data holders and policy makers - Enhance capacity for data mobilization - Publish bird occurrence species - Establish a checklist of bird species found in Benin Goal 2: Apply biodiversity data in response to conservation priorities - Achieve the current and potential ecological niche of two threatened bird species in the context of global change - Identification of areas of importance for birds conservation and suggestion of measures for conservation
