英文摘要: Primate rehabilitation is challenging but has become crucial as many species are threatened with extinction. Vervet monkeys ( Chlorocebus aethiops ) are a widespread primate species in Africa. Despite the release of comparatively large numbers of rehabilitated monkeys, the success rate is poor, with low survival. This is partly due to choosing substandard release sites. Here we use an environmental envelope model that combines species-specific environmental and spatial data (including environmental conditions such as temperature and rainfall, access to permanent water, and proximity to anthropogenic influence) to predict the best areas for release of rehabilitated vervet monkeys in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Approximately 80% of the land in KwaZulu-Natal qualifies as general habitat....
