Equation 3 of this paper contained a mistake that was replicated in Table 2. The corrections are reproduced below.

(Eq. 3)

Table 2 Observed prey numbers, prey biomass density and lion abundance, and estimates of lion abundance predicted from prey numbers using equations 2 and 3 (see text for further details) in Queen Elizabeth National Park complex, Uganda, in 1999 and 2004, and the adjoining Parc National des Virunga, DRC, in 2003 and 2006 (Fig. 1).

1 We assumed uniform distribution of prey from Table 1

2 Dricuru (1999) total count, less 4 loners and 7 that died during the study

3 JZ (unpubl. data) conducted two surveys of the same area, in 2005 and 2007
