From: Cattle transhumance and agropastoral nomadic herding practices in Central Cameroon

Herd/Collar number Total distance covered (km) Median distance per day (km) Shortest distance between origin and destination (Km) Transhumance duration (weeks) Final num. Transhumance destination
1299 746 4.14 (SD 2.21) 170.9 26 Centre Region
1300 730 3.32 (SD1.74) 53.3 32 North Region
1301 763 3.97 (SD 2.03) 154.0 29 East Region
1302 633 3.23 ( SD2.01) 172.7 28 Centre Region

  1. The total distance covered during the entire period of observation, the median distance travelled per day (standard deviation in brackets) and the distance between the two most far apart locations are all reported in kilometers. The duration of the transhumance, in weeks, is estimated from the week the herds left the grazing location in the Adamawa Region until the week they returned to same location
