  1. The use of species–stem curves in sampling the development of the Zambian miombo woodland species in charcoal production and slash-and-burn regrowth stands

    The use of species–stem curves in sampling the development of the Zambian miombo woodland species in charcoal production and slash-and-burn regrowth stands

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    The use of fixed-area plot methods was considered unsuitable to compare the responses and recovery over time of different miombo woodland species to different land-use practices (i.e. charcoal production and slash-and-burn agriculture). Young regrowth stages have many stems and the...
  2. Local community perception of joint forest management and its implications for forest condition: the case of Dambwa Forest Reserve in southern Zambia

    Local community perception of joint forest management and its implications for forest condition: the case of Dambwa Forest Reserve in southern Zambia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    This study conducted at Dambwa Forest Reserve in Livingstone, Zambia, evaluated the perception of local people about joint management of the forest reserve in the area and if there had been improvements to the livelihoods of the community and the...
  3. The ecology and management of the Miombo woodlands for sustainable livelihoods in southern Africa: the case for non-timber forest products

    The ecology and management of the Miombo woodlands for sustainable livelihoods in southern Africa: the case for non-timber forest products

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    There is new and increasing emphasis on the contribution of non-timber forest products (NTFPs) to improving the livelihoods of rural communities and therefore the need for sustainable management of forest ecosystems of the Miombo woodlands to ensure the continued availability...
  4. Exploring the potential of host-environment relationships in the control of schistosomiasis in Africa

    Exploring the potential of host-environment relationships in the control of schistosomiasis in Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    A number of human disease prevalences are supported by host-parasite-environment interactions. One such disease is schistosomiasis. Schistosoma parasites are transmitted between the snail intermediate hosts and mammalian definitive hosts in an aquatic environment. This host-environment link determines the parasite transmission...
  5. A review of carbon dynamics and assessment methods in the miombo woodlands

    A review of carbon dynamics and assessment methods in the miombo woodlands

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Provision of accurate carbon (C) measurements and analysis are critical components in quantification of C stocks. The objectives of this review were to (1) compile and synthesise current knowledge of available methods for C stock estimation, (2) examine socio-economic drivers...
  6. The potential for using red claw crayfish and hybrid African catfish as biological control agents for <em>Schistosoma</em> host snails

    The potential for using red claw crayfish and hybrid African catfish as biological control agents for <em>Schistosoma</em> host snails

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The potential of red claw crayfish and hybrid African catfish (Clarias gariepinus and Clarias ngamensis) as predators for Schistosoma host snails was evaluated in 2014 by monitoring the consumption of snails by crayfish and catfish in experimental tanks over time...
