Territorial behavior of the Uganda kob, Adenota kob thomasi (P. L. Sclater), is largely the defense of small, fixed territories within a central area of concentrated territorial activity. This area is surrounded by a zone of more widely spaced territories. Females enter the territorial ground throughout the year for the purpose of breeding.
