  1. 1. Nutrient distribution by mammalian herbivores in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park (South Africa)

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Författare :Laura van Veenhuisen; [2018]
    Nyckelord :megaherbivores; nutrient distribution; stoichiometry; South Africa; Hluhluwe–Imfolozi Park; African savannah; herbivores; wildlife ecology; dung;

    Sammanfattning : African megaherbivores are ecosystem engineers, which are under threat of extinction caused by, among others, poaching and climate change. Their current rates of loss means that there’s a need to better analyse their impact on the environment, in order to predict the consequences of losing this group. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Grazing impacts on savanna vegetation states and its role in albedo changes
