Show Summary Details


The side-striped jackal (Canis adustus) is a medium-sized canid found throughout much of East and central Africa, excluding the equatorial zone, and extending as far south as Zimbabwe and northeastern South Africa. Between 1990 and 1997, a study of side-striped jackals in Zimbabwe was carried out to determine intraspecific variation between two populations in contrasting environments, and this comparison sheds light on the epidemiology and control of jackal rabies. This chapter presents the results.

Keywords: side-striped jackal; Canis adustus; Zimbabwe; habitat; intraspecific variation; rabies
