Ever since Dian Fossey published her first scientific paper in the late 1960s, the Fossey Fund’s Karisoke Research Center in Rwanda has been the premiere scientific institution for gorilla behavior and conservation research. Scientists from all over the world continue to travel to Karisoke to add to or utilize the world’s most comprehensive and long-term database of gorilla behavior and demography, as well as data about their habitat and other animals and plants in their forest.

More than 275 publications have come out of Karisoke Research Center to date, and many more continue to be published every year. This information leads not only to general scientific understanding but helps us develop the best methods for saving the gorillas and their ecosystem as well.

Here are some of the publications based on research done at Karisoke Research Center over the years:
