Background information and definitions
This intervention is particularly important for territorial primate species that live in social groups with spatially well-defined home ranges. If logging were conducted at multiple sites within an area similar to the size of the primate species core range and over a short span of time, then an entire social group could be displaced. It has therefore been recommended that relatively small logging compartments that will be exploited simultaneously should lie at a distance of each other that equals at least the distance between different groups/communities (Morgan & Sanz 2007).
