Some of the smaller threatened species include Jerdon's palm civet (Paradoxurus jerdoni), slender loris (Loris tardigradus), grizzled giant squirrel (Ratufa macroura), and Indian giant squirrel (Ratufa indica).
Small carnivorous marsupials, typically including the long-tailed planigale (Planigale ingrami) and the stripe-faced dunnart (Sminthopsis macroura), are among the most abundant mammals using this subterranean shelter.
Rich in species, this ecoregion - mapped as wetter Zambezian miombo woodland by White (1983) - includes nearly all the miombo dominants, such as Brachystegia floribunda, B. glaberrima, B. taxifolia, B. wangermeeana, Marquesia macroura, Julbernadia globiflora, J. paniculata, and Isoberlinia angolensis.
This vegetation supports greater floral richness and includes almost all the miombo dominants, such as Brachystegia floribunda, B. glaberrima, B. taxifolia, B. wangermeeana, B. utilis, Marquesia macroura, Julbernadia globiflora, J. paniculata, and Isoberlinia angolensis.
The grass layer of this forest type contains forest species (Vaccinium vitis-idaea, V. myrtillus, Calamagrostis arundinacea, Carex macroura, Chimaphla umbellata) and steppe species (Calamagrostis arundinacea, C. epigeios, Carex supia, Koleria cristata, Aegopodium podagraria, Artemisia commutata).
The threatened species include the Asian elephant, gaur (Bos gaurus), slender loris (Loris tardigradus), wild dog, sloth bear, Jerdon's palm civet, and grizzled giant squirrel (Ratufa macroura).
