        This Encyclopedia of Tropical Biology and Conservation Management is a component of the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. Tropical environments cover the most part of still preserved natural areas of the Earth. The greatest biodiversity, as in terms of animals and plants, as microorganisms, is placed in . Abstract. Fire is a highly frequent and ecologically important phenomenon in the savanna landscape of the Kakadu region. The fire history of the region can be divided into three periods: i) pre-Aboriginal (before about 50 years ago) where ignitions were presumably restricted to lightning strikes immediately before and during the early part of the wet season; ii) Aboriginal, when fires were Cited by:

"Ecology and Management of North American Savannas" takes a major step toward establishing the science of savanna ecology for North America. It encourages constructive debate and relevant research on these important systems and will also serve as a useful resource in biogeography, plant ecology, and rangeland by: Kevin Rogers is director of the Centre for Water in the Environment and professor of ecology in the School of Animal Plant and Environmental Sciences at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Harry Biggs is programme manager for systems ecology research at Kruger National Park in South Africa.5/5(1). In addition to the changing patterns in demography and economics, and the forecasts of global warming further alert us to the most important challenge - to conserve and manage wisely the savanna ecosystems of the world.

It is this conservation that forms the basis of the work of the RSSD Program. This volume is the fifth in a series of publications produced over the last five years on the ecology of tropical savannas. The volumes arise from work undertaken by the Responses of Savannas to Stress and Disturbance (RSSD) Program, under the auspices of the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS) Decade of the Tropics Programme, co-sponsored Savanna ecology and management book the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere.

Savannas cover half of the African land surface, but are one Savanna ecology and management book the world's least studied ecosystems.

Seller Inventory # The South African Savanna Biome Programme was set up to develop the understanding necessary to predict changes in the ecosystem stability induced by both natural and man-made stresses. This book provides a synthesis of the programme's sixteen years of research at Nylsvley and aims to develop a unified vision of the ecology of the dry by: Fills a gap in literature on savanna management issues, including biodiversity conservation and animal production Applies concepts developed in other biomes to future savanna research Complements contemporary books on savanna or large herbivore ecology Focuses on the woody component of savanna ecosystems and large herbivore interactions in.

To understand modern principles of sustainable management and the conservation of wildlife species requires intimate knowledge about demography, animal behavior, and ecosystem dynamics.

With emphasis on practical application and quantitative skill development, this book weaves together these disparate elements in a single coherent textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate students.

The Kruger Experience: Ecology And Management Of Savanna Heterogeneity [Johan T. du Toit, Kevin H. Rogers, Harry C. Biggs, Anthony R.E. Sinclair and Brian Walker]. Kruger National Park in South Africa has one of the most extensive sets of records of.Savanna, vegetation type that grows under hot, seasonally dry climatic conditions and is characterized by an open tree canopy (i.e., scattered trees) above a continuous tall grass understory (the vegetation layer between the forest canopy and the ground).

The largest areas of savanna are found in.About this book Savannas cover roughly half the African land surface, and a fifth of the world land surface, and are one of the most important yet least understood ecosystems.

This book presents a synthesis of 16 years of study on the Nylsvley area in South Africa, one of the most intensively studied savanna regions in the world.
