Geographic distributions of fossilized and recent taxa can be used to illuminate prehistoric connections between geographic regions. This chapter discusses the geographic distribution and ecological niche of the Daka Member vertebrate taxa. Some Daka taxa are restricted to, but widespread within, sub-Saharan Africa during the Pliocene and Pleistocene: Aepyceros, Megalotragus, Numidocapra, Antidorcas, Syncerus, and Colobinae. Bouria and Nitidarcus are known only from the Daka Member and are endemic exclusively to the Daka Member and eastern Africa.

Keywords:   Daka Member, vertebrate taxa, Aepyceros, Megalotragus, Numidocapra, Antidorcas, Syncerus, Colobinae
