Natural Rehabilitation Potential of Riparian Zones After Alien Clearing in the Fynbos Biome – Phase 1: A Reference Study of Indigenous Seed Banks
Riparian areas contribute significantly to the spread of many invasive species which alter the ecosystem and bring about significant water loss to the river system. These areas have therefore been targeted by many alien ...
Effects of Chromolaena odorata on mammalian biodiversity in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, South Africa
This study investigated the effects of the Triffid weed Chromolaena odorata on small and large mammals in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. C. odorata is a widespread invasive alien plant that poses threat to the highly maintained ...
Karoo road verge study: Plot waypoints in UTM format
This zipped geodataset provides the location of the 240 plots. Additional plot-level environmental data include: - Lat/long position in decimal degrees - annual precipitation (Lynch 2003) - altitude - distance (km) ...
The Restoration Potential of Fynbos Riparian Seed Banks after Alien Clearing
Riparian areas are highly complex systems with varying levels of disturbance that are highly susceptible to invasion by alien plants. Once invaded, riparian areas play a major role in the dispersal and spread of invasive ...

Distribution of the invasive alien tree Schinus molle in western South Africa
We examined the distribution of the invasive alien tree Schinus molle (Peruvian pepper tree; Anacardiaceae) in South Africa, where it was planted over large areas. Localities of planted and naturalized trees were mapped ...
Invasive Management Plan for Oubosstrand and Protea farm
The human population is growing rapidly and progressively more natural landscapes are altered to provide area for food production and housing. Only recently scientists and conservationists have come to realise that there ...
The restoration potential of fynbos riparian seed banks following alien clearing
Riparian areas contribute significantly to the spread of many invasive alien tree species which alter the ecosystem by bringing about significant water loss and changing the natural flow regimes of the system. For this ...
