In this project, we report on reproductive behaviours displayed by roan antelopes. This is important since it describes sexual behaviours in males and females and provides semi-quantitative data, which is a step towards understanding the reproductive physiology of this species.

The study was performed with the approval of the University of Pretoria Animal use and care committee (Reference V072-17).
