Abstract

Small mammals were sampled on Mount Malundwe in Mikumi National Park, Tanzania, during July 2004. Nine species, representing seven genera were recorded for three mammalian orders: Insectivora, Chiroptera and Rodentia. Species documented included those common in other montane areas of Tanzania as well as inhabitants of drier habitats. Identifications and natural history information are presented for this poorly known fauna from a unique Eastern Arc habitat.
