  1. The effect of Holistic Planned Grazing™ on African rangelands: a case study from Zimbabwe

    The effect of Holistic Planned Grazing™ on African rangelands: a case study from Zimbabwe

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Holistic Planned Grazing™ (HPG) is purported to have positive long-term effects on rangelands, enhancing ecosystem services. Given comparable environmental templates, but different management regimes, vegetation monitoring and landscape function analysis showed the Africa Center for Holistic Management (ACHM) at Dimbangombe...
  2. When less is more: heterogeneity in grass patch height supports herbivores in counter-intuitive ways

    When less is more: heterogeneity in grass patch height supports herbivores in counter-intuitive ways

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Herbivores are an integral part of the African landscape and have evolved with the vegetation to create the savanna landscape. Managers of these landscapes can benefit from a better understanding of how indigenous herbivores use the landscape to which they...
  3. Determinants of herbaceous plant species composition on a number of ranches in the north‐western Transvaal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Herbaceous plant species composition was measured on ranches in the Thabazimbi district, Transvaal, to obtain veld composition scores and to quantify the relations between such scores and certain determinants considered important in influencing species composition. Determinants investigated were mean annual...

  5. Estimation of thrips (<em>Fulmekiola serrata</em> Kobus) density in sugarcane using leaf-level hyperspectral data

    Estimation of thrips (<em>Fulmekiola serrata</em> Kobus) density in sugarcane using leaf-level hyperspectral data

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The aim of this study was to investigate the potential use of leaf-level hyperspectral data to predict the density of sugarcane thrips Fulmekiola serrata (Kobus). A hand-held spectroradiometer was used to make the spectral measurements on spindle leaves of 4-...
