Guineafowl have significant value to African communities. They are potentially an important source of hunting revenue, are prey items for carnivores, and contribute to overall biological diversity. The objectives of Chelsea Taylor’s research study are to determine important demographic information about crested guineafowl such as reproductive demographics, survival and habitat selection, to determine what characteristics comprise successful nests, and to determine the effects of agriculture operations such as sugarcane on guineafowl populations at a landscape level.
