    Aboveground biomass production of a semi-arid southern African savanna: towards a new model

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Following a field campaign to determine the species composition, canopy cover, aboveground annual production and leaf area index (LAI) of the semi-arid savanna of north-western Namibia, we present a production model that can be used by graziers to determine the...
