Lantana camara (lantana) is a major invasive shrub globally, impacting upon biodiversity, economies, ecosystem services, and driving socio-ecological change. The aim of this study was to determine the current and potential distribution of lantana in eastern Africa and its livelihood impacts in...
A sound understanding of the effects of defoliation management in a grass–legume pasture is key in balancing populations between species. The aim of this study was to quantify the morphogenetic and structural characteristics and forage production of brachiaria grass and forage peanut mixtures...
This study aimed to determine vegetation structure, species diversity and aboveground herbaceous biomass and browse yields in Borana rangelands of southern Ethiopia. Sampling through random allocation of quadrats within replicated sample plots was undertaken in communally grazed areas, grazing...
Determining the quantum (both annual maxima and minima) and the temporal variation in the leaf area index (LAI), and the fraction of photosynthetically active radiation (fPAR), are three fundamental biophysical characteristics of the plant canopy that should parameterise ecophysiological models...
Understanding the environmental factors governing the spread of alien shrubs is crucial for conserving biodiversity. In the semi-arid savannas of Africa, alien shrub invasion often occurs simultaneously with native shrub encroachment but climate-dependent differences in encroachments of native...
Climate change will probably profoundly impact the Maloti Mountains in Lesotho, which are likely to have a warmer, wetter and more CO2-enriched (eCO2) atmosphere in the future. Intensive smallstock grazing could exacerbate the effects of climate change on the mountain grasslands. Vegetation...
