For the past five years the author has been carrying out a comparative study of the food habits of six species of wild ungulates occurring in the Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda. The species under study are the hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius) the buffalo (Syncerus c. caffer), the waterbuck (Kobus defassa), the topi (Damaliscus korrigllm jimela), the Uganda kob (Adenota kob thomasi) and the warthog (Phacochoerus aethiopiclls). These are the dominant species of the area, together with the elephant (Loxodonta africana).
