On the distribution and status of the black francolin, Francolinus francolinus, in Cyprus



On the distribution and status of the black francolin, Francolinus francolinus, in Cyprus



Zoology in the Middle East 4: 17-21



The present distribution of the Black Francolin (Francolinus francolinus) in Cyprus is concentrated in two restricted areas: the Karpasia peninsula in the north-east of the island, where about 200 birds live; and the lowlands of Paphos district in the west of Cyprus, where about 150 birds occur mainly on Akamas peninsula and around the villages of Paphos and Polis. As the decline of the population is correlated with the level of hunting, protection is urgently needed.
