  1. Impact of <em>Prosopis</em> (mesquite) invasion and clearing on the grazing capacity of semiarid Nama Karoo rangeland, South Africa

    Impact of <em>Prosopis</em> (mesquite) invasion and clearing on the grazing capacity of semiarid Nama Karoo rangeland, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    We assessed the impact of Prosopis invasion and clearing on the grazing capacity of heavily grazed Nama Karoo rangeland in the Beaufort West district of the Western Cape province of South Africa. Invasion (c. 15% Prosopis canopy cover) reduced grazing...
  2. Identifying key grazing indicators to monitor trends in the veld condition of Lambert's Bay Strandveld, South Africa

    Identifying key grazing indicators to monitor trends in the veld condition of Lambert's Bay Strandveld, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Currently, the methods used to assess the veld condition of the Lambert's Bay Strandveld along the West Coast of South Africa require that the operator knows all the plants encountered in the survey area. In this study data were collected...
  3. Effect of management on rangeland phytomass, cover and condition in two biomes in South Africa

    Effect of management on rangeland phytomass, cover and condition in two biomes in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    In rangelands, grazing management is a main driver of rangeland condition. Due to masking effects of seasonal climate fluctuations, little is known about (dis)similarity of management effects on rangeland condition and forage provision across major dryland biomes. Taking a macro-ecological...
  4. Does Holistic Planned Grazing™ work on native rangelands?

    Does Holistic Planned Grazing™ work on native rangelands?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The balance of papers in this Special Issue show that how Holistic Planned Grazing™ is managed and where it is used impacts the efficacy of the approach. While we will do well to develop more mechanistic models that can identify...

    Assessment of resource availability and suitability for subsistence fishers in South Africa, with a review of resource management procedures

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The availability of resources and their suitability for subsistence and small-scale commercial fishers in South Africa were assessed and appropriate options for the management of resources recommended. Assessment of current resource utilization and recommendations for future subsistence and/or small-scale commercial...
  8. Challenges and opportunities in the use of remote sensing for C<sub>3</sub> and C<sub>4</sub> grass species discrimination and mapping

    Challenges and opportunities in the use of remote sensing for C<sub>3</sub> and C<sub>4</sub> grass species discrimination and mapping

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Changes in the composition of plant functional type (PFT) activities are expected to accompany a changing climate. In tropical montane grasslands, such changes are predicted to follow shifts in the percentage cover and abundance of species following the C3 and...
