Table 1 Comparison of species richness across two elevational zones in Gomo forest. Mean ± SD species richness is shown for the forest-dependent and forest generalist assemblage in each zone. P-values are Bonferroni-adjusted to account for multiple testing. Text in bold indicates a statistically significant difference across zones
