Stable isotope turnover and variability in tail hairs of captive and free-ranging African elephants (Loxodonta africana) reveal dietary niche differences within populations
(NRC Research Press, 2013)
Many herbivore species expand their dietary niche breadths by switching from browse-rich diets in dry seasons to grass-rich diets in rainy seasons, in response to phenological changes in plant availability and quality. We ...
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 ...
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, ...
