Some new mammal records from the rainforests of south-eastern Nigeria
Francesco Angelici,Bomiegha Egbide,Godfrey Akani
Hystrix : the Italian Journal of Mammalogy , 2001, DOI: 10.4404/hystrix-12.1-4169
Abstract: In this paper we report new data on the occurrence and range of seven mammal species in the rainforest region of south-eastern Nigeria. The species in question are: Potamogale velox (Insectivora), Cercopithecus sclateri, Procolobus badius epieni (Primates), Manis tetradactyla (Pholidota), Funisciurus pyrropus talboti (Rodentia), Trichechus senegalensis (Sirenia) and Tragelaphus spekii gratus (Artiodactyla). In terms of conservation (according to latest IUCN criteria and categories), we discovered some critical information concerning the mammal fauna in the area. In fact, out of these seven species, one is Critically Endangered (CR), four are Endangered (EN), one is Lower Risk, least concern (LR, lc), and one is Not Evaluated (NE). Deforestation and excessive hunting pressure are the biggest threats for mammals in the Niger Delta. In particular, endemic taxa and species whose range and status are unknown, could be particularly endangered.

Uwalomwa Uwuigbe,Ben-Caleb Egbide
Journal of Management and Sustainability , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/jms.v2n1p160
Abstract: This study is an empirical investigation of the relationship between firms’ corporate financial performance and the level of corporate social responsibility disclosures among selected firms in Nigeria. It also looked at the relationship between firms’ financial leverage and the level of corporate social responsibility disclosures among selected firms. While the annual reports for the period 2008 was utilized as the main source of data collection for the sampled 41 listed firms, the multiple regression analysis was employed as a statistical technique for analysing the data collected. The paper revealed that firms’ corporate financial performance and the size of audit firm have a significant positive relationship with the level of corporate social responsibility disclosures among selected firms. Also, the paper as part of its findings- observed that a significant negative relationship existed between firms’ financial leverage and the level of corporate social responsibility disclosures. The paper therefore recommends that government, as part of their responsibility, should put in place policies that will create a good business environment for firms operating in the country.
