Unless otherwise noted, taxonomy and distributional notes for all mammals arc from the relevant chapters in Wilson & Reeder (2005) and Kingdon (1997). STUDY AREA Prigogine (1960) and Plumptre et al. (2007b) reviewed some of the biology of the area and provided notes on bio- geographic boundaries. The Misotshi-Kabogo highlands are separated from the Itombwe massif to the north by a 50 km wide savannah through which crosses the Kilomb- we River (Fig. 1 a). This savannah constitutes a barrier for some bird species (Prigogine 1960), which must be true for some mammals as well. The absence of forest in the Kilombwe valley may be caused by the low rainfall and low humidity due to strong winds that favour herbaceous vegetation. The Marungu highlands lie to the south and are separated from the Misotshi-Kabogo highlands by the Lukuga River. Both rivers fonned following the tecton- ic activity and uplift that created these highlands on the western shore of Lake Tanganyika. To the west, gallery forest and savannah continue for hundreds of kilometres south of the main Congo Basin Forest Block (Plumptre et al. 2007b). The Misotshi-Kabogo highlands run approx- imately 100 km along the escarpment above Lake Tan- ganyika at an estimated width of 10-20 km. On the west- em slopes, the forest descends the valleys as gallery for- est; while in the east, it is continuous along Lake Tanganyi- ka where it reaches 2500-275
