Abstract

The approximation of the numbers of big mammals in general and the buffalo in particular, is done in the Southern and central parts of Benin. The technique used is the method of total hike inventory. The choice of this technique is justified by the fact that the number of contacts recorded during a hike census by transect is often problematic within the framework of obtaining satisfactory approximations of the densities of some species. It is the case of under – populations of the Buffalo (Syncerus caffer Sparrman 1779) in the Southern and central parts of Benin. In this study, it is tried out the total hike method. It is shown that under the ecological conditions of the sector of study, this method makes it possible to obtain not very satisfactory approximations. In June 2011 and December 2012, the estimations were respectively 17 and 21 individuals. This method supports also the study of the structure of age and sex of the numbers.
