Cable snares and bushmeat markets in a central African forest

    • Published online: 10 May 2002

Bushmeat consumption and trade is the greatest threat to biodiversity conservation in African forest regions. In many areas cable snaring is the principal hunting method employed by subsistence and commercial hunters. Methods for studying cable snaring and bushmeat markets were compared at a single site in the Central African Republic, in order to identify the relative strengths and weaknesses of the methods. Dependence upon any single method results in incomplete information on the ecological impacts of cable snare hunting and bushmeat marketing.
