This study sought to determine the current status of the Red-tailed Monkey and its habitats in eleven peri-urban forest fragments. A tree enumeration was conducted along the same transect used for censuring monkeys. These are the trees that provide both the food resources and a medium for travel and rest for the arboreal primates. Large trees (>100cm dbh) were found missing in most of the fragments and where present, these were few. Tree basal area and composition did not show a significant relationship with red-tailed monkeys’ group size.

Belt transect method was employed for the enumeration exercise. A transect was established across each forest. A 2.5m strip on either side of the transect was established within which all trees with diameter greater than or equal to 10cm at breast height were measured using a diameter tape and recorded.
