Using Maximum Entropy modeling to predict the potential distributions of large trees for conservation planning
(Ecological Society of America, 2012-06)
Large trees, as keystone structures, are functionally important in savanna ecosystems, and low recruitment and slow growth makes their conservation important. Understanding factors influencing their distribution is essential ...
Model highlights likely long-term inﬂuences of mesobrowsers versus those of elephants on woodland dynamics
(Wiley Online Library, 2014-06)
The potential long-term inﬂuences of mesobrowsers versus those of savannah elephants on woodland dynamics have not been explored. This may be a critical omission especially in southern African savannahs, where efforts to ...
Heavy impact on seedlings by the impala suggests a central role in woodland dynamics
(Cambridge University Press, 2012-04-12)
Research has increasingly established that mesoherbivores influence the regeneration of woody plants. However the relationship between mesoherbivore density and degree of impact, and the spatial component of this impact, ...
