Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women: Summary record of the 651st meeting
Summary report by the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights detailing the extent to which Equatorial Guinea has adhered to its commitments to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women.
Bushmeat markets can reflect the impact of hunting in large geographical areas, but efficient and adequate sampling strategies are needed. Five bushmeat markets in West and Central Africa were used to simulate the performance of different sampling regimes. The studied markets (n= 863 days) varied in animal carcasses and number of species recorded. In our simulations, we varied number of days sampled and their temporal distribution using a variant of the Monte Carlo methodology. Three sample strategies were considered: (1) unconstrained random sampling; (2) random sampling of start-points, where the n days sampled are a sequential block following the randomly selected start-point and (3) sampling blocked by season. No substantial differences between standard sampling theory and our simulations were present. However, only a large sample of markets will allow useful inferences on a regional scale and timing and coordination of sampling may be highly influential. Sampling in blocks of days was as efficient as simple random sampling in estimating species richness, but not carcass volume. This may indicate that, even with seasonality in market compositions, or irregular influences, the temporal pattern as described by presence/absence varies much less than does the volume of carcasses. Shorter sampling periods perform poorly in estimating species richness. The relationship between % species richness and overall carcass volume may predict the sampling effort required to estimate market species richness based on volume, when a large enough sample of markets becomes available. Similarly, a larger sample of markets would reveal how far the species composition in markets reflects the general organising principles of community structure in terms of frequency and abundance relationships.
The aim of this study was to do surveys about bush meat networks around urban centers near the Monte Alen National Park in Equatorial Guinea.
A detailed checklist of the Rubiaceae (coffee family) occurring naturally on the islands of Bioko and Annobon (Equatorial Guinea, Gulf of Guinea) is presented, based on herbarium collections deposited in the herbaria of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and The Natural History Museum, London. The checklist comprises 58 genera and 147 species, including six new generic records and 26 new infrageneric records. The total number of native Rubiaceae species occurring in Bioko is 139; three entities do not have formal names and probably represent new taxa. In Annobon there are 12 native genera and 13 indigenous species of Rubiaceae. The conservation status of two endemic species is assessed using IUCN criteria and it is proposed that they are considered Vulnerable.
The author of this book looks forward to assert the existence of a type of literature emerging in Equatorial Guinea.
Short but substantial collection (39 stories) of Fang people's traditional stories of Equatorial Guinea, collected during the month of September 2000 by José Elá.
Book on the life of the Spanish colonists in Spanish Guinea during the forties, in Santa Isabel and in Bata, recollecting the incidents that occurred during World War II.
Report detailing corruption by Riggs Bank, based in Washington D.C., in relation to over 60 bank accounts for the government of Equatorial Guinea. This report raises questions as to what should be done about this matter while detailing further corruptions made by the bank.
