Overgrazing of domestic livestock in the forest reduce resources of habitat accessible to wild ungulates
, resulting in competition for space and food.
(1977) observed that ungulates
between 20-1000 kg have similar maximum velocities (10-14 m/s), demonstrating that the similarity in limb proportions is related to shape in the functional biomechanics of the complete limb, where the increase of inertial forces due to size are not compensated by different structural design, keeping the same kinematics and reaching the same absolute velocities.
His research interests are bovine tuberculosis epidemiology in wild ungulates
, disease ecology at the wildlife-livestock interface, and conservation physiology using carnivores and ungulates
as research models.
The herbage (including grass, sedges, forbs) used by the two ungulates
was significantly different.
Livestock and wild ungulates
spatial data collected during November 2012 aerial census was obtained from the Department of Resources Survey and Remote Sensing (DRSRS), a Kenyan government department mandated with collecting, storing, analyzing, updating, and disseminating geospatial information on natural resources.

He also said that the exchange of ideas would benefit the drafting of policies, that are necessary for the protection of mountain ungulates
, which in many cases are endangered species.

Conservation of mountain ungulates
also promotes the conservation of populations of other species, rare animals such as the snow leopard," said the GIZ.
