XIII Research Focus and Contributions to Knowledge

My research focus and contributions to knowledge have been in the area of Wildlife Ecology, which include Domestication, Environmental Impact on Wildlife with input on Socio-economic Influence of Human-Wildlife Interaction. These have formed good bases for teaching, supervision of students in wildlife management and community development.

i. Wildlife Ecology: The relative or absolute abundance and densities of the ecosystem (ecology) in any protected area give a special significance to the biological diversity of the region. Conservation of this diversity implies preservation, maintenance, rational utilization, restoration and enhancement of the natural environment. Study on ecology will provide an approach to the need for wildlife conservation, diversity and management. It will also give forecast for indigenous wild animal population trends so as to determine the status level (extinct, endangered, threatened, vulnerable and lower risk) within the ecosystem.

Publication numbers 1, 8, 13, 14, 17, 18, 22, 29, 30, 32, 34, 35, 36, 38 and 41 are contributions to the knowledge of wildlife within the protected areas (National Parks, Game Reserves, and Forest Reserves) as well as free zone areas within the country. These provide additional information and guidelines to the already existing ones for policy makers in the country.

ii. Domestication: The idea of domesticating wildlife species for meat production to improve protein supply in the country is highly rated and there is no doubt that domestication and farming of favorite wild animal species such as grasscutters and snails provide viable complementary and alternative source of animal protein to the teeming population in the country. The success depends on development of technical know-how and cheap methods of production.

My publication numbers 2, 23, 28, 30, 31 and 46 sought to add to the existing database in the area of wildlife domestication and to elucidate the problems associated with the tropical species. Husbandry methods and requirement for feeding, housing, health and reproductive methods of management are emphasized.

iii. Environmental Impact on Wildlife: Wildlife is an important aspect and component of rainforest ecosystem and is very much dependent on natural vegetation in order to survive. Wildlife as a resource and part of the ecosystem along with air, land and water has been greatly influenced by different eco-development, ecosystem and habitat alteration in the world, which has hitherto caused much of the diversity and status composition. Activities such as vegetation removal, ecological disturbances, geological hazard - tremor, land slide, erosion and flooding - will affect the balance in the ecosystem, and cause decline in plant and animal species due to habitat alteration and grave consequences that are caused on some wildlife species.

My publication numbers 12, 15, 16, 20, 26, 27, 33, 35, 37, 38, 39, 42, 43, 47, and 48 provided baseline information that is very useful in areas of Environmental Impact of Eco-development activities on Wildlife as a major resource that contributed to ecosystem balance within the tropical region.

iv. Socio-economic Influence of Human Wildlife Interaction: For conservation of wildlife benefits to be realized, there must be positive economic gains accruing to the people living close to the wildlife population. However, care has to be taken that economic incentive are not promoted at the peril of conservation principles, rather the integration of economic gain and its allied uses with conservation objectives are based on the context of a conservation oriented policy frame work and sound ecological science.

My publication numbers 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 18, 19, 21, 22, 24, 25, 30 and 33 provide alternative usage and holistic approach towards socio-economic influence on human wildlife relationship because any conservation objective that does not consider rural populace and their needs is doomed to fail.
