Bird Ecology (Sep '15)

Heavy grazing by domestic lifestock leading to shrub encroachment is a major form of savanna rangeland degradation. The consequences often result in reduced structural and species diversity and displaced species interactions that cause cascading effects on trophic levels.

Specifically we will look into the bird and vegetation diversity in this particular project.

Students help in surveys in this important project and cover various aspects of savanna ecology and methodology in the field, including dealing with an experimental set-up in field ecology.

To make the most of your time you will have the opportunity to be out in the field every day for data collection. During field trips, we will mainly be on the wildlife reserve, having wild animals roaming around us while we collect data on plants or animals. You will also get to see how cattle is managed on arid farmland and understand the differences between wildlife and cattle ranching in Southern Africa.
