There are so many beautiful butterflies down here, but they are pretty hard to catch on camera 📷 I was lucky that this pale yellow one decided to have a quick stop over on the Lantana I was trying to photograph 🦋 Lantanas are from Asia, and they seem to have spread to most of the tropics. When we looked it up it turned out it had gotten the common name “the curse of India”... 😂

The students are on an excursion this morning, so we have half a day at the office 😎 No complaints.
@evomics - we need to rethink our office decor 😉

Late afternoon light at the field station 🏞 This place is magical, and we’ve just finished two great days of botanical teaching 🌸 Africa, you are beautiful and I haven’t even been up the mountain! ⛰

Hej, vi er Mathias og Femke og er på feltkursus i Tanzania i de næste to uger. Stedet hedder Udzungwa og er et naturreservat, hvor Københavns Universitet har en feltstation. Kurset vi tager tilbydes af Statens Naturhistoriske Museum og hedder “Field Course in Ecology and Evolution of East Africa”. På kurset er vi 16 studerende fra KU og seks studerende fra Tanzania.
Vi er begge lige blevet færdige med vores tredje år på bacheloren i biologi.
Mathias er især interesseret i fugle og biodiversitet overordnet og har arbejdet med dette tidligere i hans uddannelse. Femke er især interesseret i planter og har bl.a. arbejdet med planters overlevelse under forskellige forhold, hun er også meget glad for dyr.
Vi glæder os til at vise jer vores oplevelser på turen. #kustudieliv #scienceku #ucph #kbhuni #biologiku #stilgernespørgsmål #udzungwa #tanzania #fieldcourse #feltkursusku #udzungwa2018

Picked up this nice Impatiens on our walk today 🌸 Scenically located at the edge of a small waterfall 🏞There’s very few flowers out at the moment, so it’s very nice to stumble across something this bright and colourful... also that it’s something you can actually recognise at least at family level 😂

The Sykes' monkey (Cercopithecus albogularis), named after English naturalist Colonel William Henry Sykes. Sykes’ monkeys are frugivorous and folivorous in nature, eating mainly fruits and leaves. In addition, Sykes’ monkeys tend to concentrate their invetebrate feeding on slow-moving slugs and worms. // #linefaberphotography #udzungwa #mountains #rainforest #easternarcmountains #eastafrica #africa #tanzania #biology #endemism #ecology #research #science #nature #wildlife #travel #fieldwork #primate #primatology #monkey #sykesmonkey

If you look closely in between the lianas and branches you’ll spot an Udzungwa royalty; the Udzungwa red colobus (Procolobus gordonorum). The Udzungwa red colobus lives in multi-male, multi-female groups of anything between 7 and 83 individuals, but usually of around 24. The Udzungwa red colobus is a diurnal species and feeds mainly on leaves, but will also eat flowers, fruits and fungi. The Udzungwa red colobus is preyed upon by crowned hawk-eagles (Stephanoaetus coronatus) and chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes). When a predator has been spotted, these monkeys alert others in the group through a series of calls, which differ to indicate either an aerial or ground predator. // #linefaberphotography #udzungwa #mountains #rainforest #easternarcmountains #eastafrica #africa #tanzania #biology #endemism #ecology #research #science #nature #wildlife #travel #fieldwork #primate #udzungwaredcolobus #monkey #colobusmonkey #primatology

The Udzungwa mountains are part of the Eastern Arc Mountains of East Africa. I am currently in Tanzania staying at the Udzungwa mountains and I am having the absolute time of my life! I live at UEMC which is a field station dedicated to promoting ecological monitoring and environmental education, and a centre for accommodating researchers and students. The Udzungwa Mountains is a vast (over 16,000 km2) mountainous range partially covered in rain forest.
The area holds exceptional levels of biodiversity and represents the largest and biologically richest block of the Eastern Arc Mountains, which is well known as one of the most important biodiversity hotspots on earth.

The Udzungwas are of exceptional importance for primate diversity and conservation, holding two endemic primate species, the Udzungwa red colobus (Procolobus gordonorum) and the Sanje mangabey (Cercocebus sanjei), both IUCN Endangered, and one near-endemic genus and species, the kipunji (Rungwecebus kipunji), IUCN Critically Endangered. In addition, at least nine other species of primates are present in the Udzungwas, including six nocturnal primates (galagos). Among the vertebrates, the Udzungwas hold 46 Eastern Arc endemic species of which 20 are Udzungwa-endemic, and 36 species of Eastern Arc endemic and near-endemic trees. These are among the highest scores for all sites in the Eastern Arc Mountains.

A number of new, unique vertebrate species have been discovered in the last 15 years, including the aforementioned kipunji, the Udzungwa forest partridge Xenoperdix udzungwensis, the rufous-winged sunbird Cinnyris rufipennis, the shrew Congosorex phillipsorum, the giant sengi, or elephant-shrew Rhynchocyon udzungwensis, and several amphibians and reptile species. // #linefaberphotography #udzungwa #mountains #rainforest #easternarcmountains #eastafrica #africa #tanzania #biology #endemism #ecology #research #science #nature #wildlife #travel #fieldwork

FELTBOTANIK I UDZUNGWA BJERGENE, TANZANIA [1 af 4]

Udsigt fra museets feltstation i Udzungwa bjergene, Tanzania, hvor der hvert år opdages helt nye arter. En mosaik af grønt, høje træer, små buske, gemte planter og smukke blomster.
Professor Nina Rønsted og jeg (@veraphical) er ankommet til Udzungwa bjergene, og med os er et helt hold af nysgerrige studerende.
Der skal tales planter, dyr, insekter, økologi, og evolution, men frem for alt skal der undervises i, hvordan man arbejder i felten, og hvorfor det er så vigtigt, at vi passer godt på den natur, vi har. Vi har begge glædet os helt vildt, og vi håber I vil følge med os på rejsen.

We’ve had a pretty nice day in the field and collected high and low for good species to look at in detail back at the station. 🏞 Green is good, and outdoor life definitely makes you happy ☺️💚
