(1) Thus, at one extreme there is a group of species that had high Kolmogorov-Smirnov values and that differed from all predicted distributions by having short, synchronized seasons (wildebeest, topi , warthog, and Grant's gazelle).(2) In this study on lek-breeding topi antelopes, I investigate whether female mating preferences have consequences for male investment in harassment and whether harassing males are more likely to succeed in mating.(3) Wildebeest, topi , warthog, and Grant's gazelle births differed from all predicted distributions.(4) It is closely related to topi and wildebeest, both of which show extreme birth synchrony.(5) Although rich with game the crater has no giraffe, impala or topi .(6) Male topi , Damaliscus lunatus, defend core areas within large home ranges at low population densities and wooded habitat, but they form leks at high population densities in open grasslands.(7) Her goal was to knit Masroor a woollen topi before the winter set in(8) Across the open grasslands are scattered various members of the antelope family - horned bushbucks, waterbucks, eland, topi , gazelle and impala.(9) For the six grazing species with precocial young (wildebeest, topi , kongoni, warthog, buffalo, zebra), Fig 3. shows the frequency distribution of births.(10) Slightly apart stand a line of khaki-clad men, ancients with grizzled beards and yellow, rheumy eyes, dressed in tattered uniforms and battered solar topis .(11) The usual literary suspects trailed their solar topees and bar chits through here, starting with Joseph Conrad in 1887, the year of its opening.(12) That means that when the guys in solar topees go home newly independent countries have to choose between charismatic and bureaucratic rule.(13) All his work in recruiting locals who still sport solar topees and spill their first G & T of the day in a loyal toast to the Queen Empress will unravel.(14) The simple creatures hope he will impale his solar topee on a tree.(15) Add up all the lions, elephants, warthogs, giraffes, gazelles, zebras, impalas, topis and hyenas that live on these plains and they fail to outnumber the gnus.(16) So mistakenly they went and bought me armfuls of tropical kit: solar topees , boots to keep mosquitoes out at night, riding britches, God knows what.
