Notes

  • T6766 - Dowsett & Dowsett-Lemaire (2006) indicates that Extensive hunting in Malawi may have impacts.
  • T7226 - Dowsett & Dowsett-Lemaire (2006) indicates that extensive hunting in Malawi may have impacts.
  • T7389 - Based on IWC data from six countries mainly from Southern Africa, Nagy & Langendoen (2020) reported uncertain trend with negative tendency for each of the trend periods of 1995-2013, 2002-2013, 2004-2013. Based on the smoothed imputed totals, the population has decreased by 56% (n.s.) in 11 years, i.e. in 3 generations. Based on the growth rate of the last 10 years, the population is projected to decrease by 73% in 3 generations compared to the population levels in 2004. Probably much habitat loss has occurred (Taylor, 2020). Dowsett-Lemaire and Dowset (2006) indicates that extensive hunting in Malawi may have impacts.
