dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: The bushpig (Potamochoerus 2)orcus) is one of the least studied of the larger African mammals. This contrast to the other two African auids, the is in striking warthog (Phacochoerus aethiopicus) and giant forest hog (Hylochoerus meinertzhgeni), which have been subjected to detailed studies i.a. by Cumming (1970), D'Huart (1978) and Mason (1982). Because the bushpig is a prominent species both in the forest biome and on adjacent agricultural land, autecological research on the species is presently being undertaken to provide information needed for multipurpose forest management. This study on age determination is part of the broader research programme on the species.en_ZA
