Initial excavation and dating of Ngalue Cave: A Middle Stone Age site along the Niassa Rift, MozambiqueMercader, J. Et al.2009




Direct evidence for a systematic occupation of the African tropics during the early late Pleistocene is lacking. Here, we report a record of human occupation between 105–42 ka, based on results from a radiometrically-dated cave section from the Mozambican segment of the Niassa (Malawi/Nyasa) Rift called Ngalue. The sedimentary sequence from bottom to top has five units. We concentrate on the socalled ‘‘Middle Beds,’’ which contain a Middle Stone Age industry characterized by the use of the discoidal reduction technique. A significant typological feature is the presence of formal types such as points, scrapers, awls, and microliths. Special objects consist of grinders/core-axes covered by ochre.

Relearning traditional knowledge to achieve sustainability: honey gathering in the miombo woodlands of northern MozambiqueSnook, L. Et al.2015




Mozambique’s Niassa Reserve contains Africa’s best preserved miombo woodlands. Half of the households there gather wild honey from natural hives for consumption and income. However, most collectors used destructive techniques: setting fire to the grasses under the hive tree to create smoke and then felling the tree. Cutting trees to obtain honey was the principal source of tree mortality. Trees grow very slowly, about 0.25 cm diameter [dbh]/yr, meaning an average hive tree was nearly 200 years old. Furthermore, of the trees > 20 cm dbh of species important for nectar and hives, only about 15% had cavities.

A clash of values and approaches: A case study of marine protected area planning in MozambiqueRosendo, S. Et al.2011




Many developing countries are expanding their network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) to meet ambitious marine conservation targets set globally and to develop tourism nationally. This study explores the human dimensions of MPA planning in Mozambique by engaging local resource users in a series of structured discussions about marine resource use, pressures on marine resources, ways to address such pressures, and the potential positive and negative impacts of MPAs on the management of marine resources and livelihoods, from a community perspective.

Garimpo no distrito de Gorongosa implicações para o Parque Nacional da GorongosaDondeyne, S.; Nhaca, F. & Jantar, P.2007




No distrito de Gorongosa, estudamos a situação actual em relação à exploração artesanal, com particular atenção ao Parque Nacional da Gorongosa. Em 2003 camponeses de Tsiquiri, à cerca de 7 quilómetros do Parque, descobriram ouro, o que atraiu até 3000 garimpeiros na zona. Porque o governo estava preocupado com as repercussões negativas ao Parque, esta actividade foi proibida. Constatamos que os esforços de fiscalização são efectivos, e que praticamente não há nenhuma actividade de garimpo nas zonas em redor do Parque. As águas de quase todos os rios que escorrem ao Parque eram muito claras, indicando que os mesmos não são afectados pelo garimpo.

Human–wildlife conflict in Mozambique: a national perspective, with emphasis on wildlife attacks on humansDunham, K. Et al.2010




Human–wildlife conflicts are common across Africa. In Mozambique, official records show that wildlife killed 265 people during 27 months (July 2006 to September 2008). Crocodile Crocodylus niloticus, lion Panthera leo, elephant Loxodonta africana and hippopotamus Hippopotamus amphibius caused most deaths but crocodiles were responsible for 66%. Crocodile attacks occurred across Mozambique but 53% of deaths occurred in districts bordering Lake Cabora Bassa and the Zambezi River. Hippopotamus attacks were also concentrated here.

The Problems of Artisanal Gold Mining in Manica ProvinceMachon, A. Et al.2012




The artisanal and small scale mining is a generic term that means something different to different people, countries and organizations. In an African perspective, artisanal and small scale mining was defined by Dreschler (2001) as mining operations carried out by individuals organized into groups (four to eight individuals) or cooperatives of ten or more individuals, which are entirely financed by limited resources and undertaken full-time, using simple techniques and traditional instruments with low level of mechanization. The main aim of this booklet is to share with the public the results of a scientific research in the area of artisanal mining carried out in the last 20 years in Manica Province in central Mozambique.

Freshwater Ecoregions of the World: A New Map of Biogeographic Units for Freshwater Biodiversity ConservationAbell, R. Et al.2008




We present a new map depicting the first global biogeographic regionalization of Earth’s freshwater systems. This map of freshwater ecoregions is based on the distributions and compositions of freshwater fish species and incorporates major ecological and evolutionary patterns. Covering virtually all freshwater habitats on Earth, this ecoregion map, together with associated species data, is a useful tool for underpinning global and regional conservation planning efforts (particularly to identify outstanding and imperiled freshwater systems); for serving as a logical framework for large-scale conservation strategies; and for providing a global-scale knowledge base for increasing freshwater biogeographic literacy.

Diet-shifts and food-dependent survival in Engraulicypris sardella (Cyprinidae) larvae from Lake Malawi, AfricaThompson, A. & Irvine, K.1997




The diet of Engraulicypris sardella (Cyprinidae) larvae was determined from the open waters of Lake Malawi, Africa. The guts of first-feeding larvae of 2-3 mm total length (TL) usually contained many cells of 5-9 um diameter tentatively identified as a non-colonial green alga (Chlorophyta). The number of these cells in the guts of larvae declined as larvae increased in size, and were not found in larvae greater than 9 mm TL. Other types of phytoplankton were rarely seen in the guts of larvae. Copepod nauplii were eaten by larvae greater than 4 mm TL, and copepodite copepods and cladoceans by larvae greater than 5 mm TL. The biomass of open water crustacean zooplankton and E.sardella larvae were determined over a 2-year sampling programme.

The Vertical Distribution of Runoff and its Suspended Load in Lake MalawiMcCullough, G.; Barber, D. & Cooley, P.2007




Lake Malawi, in south-eastern Africa, is subject to increasing loading of suspended solids caused by land use pressure in its watershed. Whether this load is transported into the lake as overflow, interflow or deep underflow determines to a large extent its effect on the lake ecosystem. In this paper, vertical distributions of suspended solids in the Linthipe River delta region of the lake are described from multiple surveys during two rainy seasons. These data are supplemented by data from a single survey near four northern rivers also tributary to the lake.

The Status and Distribution of Freshwater Biodiversity in Southern AfricaDarwall, W. Et al.2009




Biodiversity within inland water ecosystems in southern Africa is both highly diverse and of great regional importance to livelihoods and economies. However, development activities are not always compatible with the conservation of this diversity and it is poorly represented within the development planning process. One of the main reasons cited for inadequate representation of biodiversity is a lack of readily available information on the status and distribution of inland water taxa.

Double exposure in Mozambique’s Limpopo River BasinSilva, J.; Eriksen, S. & Ombe, Z.2010




This paper examines how double exposure to economic and environmental stressors – and the interaction between the two – affect smallholder farmers in Mozambique’s Limpopo River Basin. Studying two case study villages we find that people, in general, are resilient to environmental stressors. However, most households show less resilience to the socioeconomic stressors and shocks that have been introduced or intensified by economic globalisation. Our findings indicate that economic change brought about by structural adjustment policies pressures rural people to alter their approach to farming, which makes it more difficult for them to respond to environmental change

A Modelling Approach for Lake Malawi/Nyasa/Niassa: Integrating Hydrological and Limnological DataLam, D. Et al.2004




This study presents a toolkit approach for linking land- and lake-based data and models to determine the impact of human activities on the water quality of rivers and lakes. The integrated modelling framework was adapted to address specific issues and scenarios. Based on the preliminary results, a hypothetical 50% re-forestation of the Linthipe Watershed in the southern part of Lake Malawi/Nyasa/Niassa may lead to a decrease in the spring peak value of total phosphorus concentration from about 15 mg/L to 10 mg/L in the top layer (0 – 40 m) of the lake’s Outlet Basin. Discussions on improvement to future modelling and monitoring programs are also presented.

Tracing geographical patterns of population differentiation in a widespread mangrove gastropod: genetic and geometric morphometrics surveys along the eastern African coastMadeira, C. Et al.2012




In the present study, we assessed the inter- and intrapopulation genetic and morphological variation of Cerithidea decollata along the eastern coast of Africa. The population structure of C. decollata along the latitudinal gradient was examined by sequencing 420 bp of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) gene in 172 snails from 29 sites, in a combined analysis with geometric morphometrics in 1799 snails from 32 sites. Analysis of molecular variance and spatial analysis of molecular variance showed a moderate spatial population differentiation from Kenya to the Republic of South Africa, suggesting genetic divergence between the northern, central, and southern regions.

An Ichthyological and Bio-monitoring Survey of Fish Assemblages in the Vunduzi River from it Source on Gorongosa Mountain to its Lower Reaches in the Gorongosa National Park, MoçambiqueSara, J. Et al.2012




To date no study has been done on the composition of the itchyofauna in the Vunduzi River or other rivers in the Park. Little is known about the fish populations in the upper reaches of the mountain because it is difficult to access. Hence the goal of this study was twofold. The first aim was to establish the fish composition in the Vunduzi River system and to establish what effect biotic vs. abiotic factors have on species assemblages. Since the Vunduzi River is vital and a continual source of water for Lake Urema and the GNP as a whole this investigation serves as a baseline study to assist Park authorities with decision-making when considering the impact anthropogenic activities such as deforestation and increased settlements.

Geomorphology, hydrology, and ecology of Lake Urema, central Mozambique, with focus on lake extent changesBohme, B. Et al.2006




Lake Urema is one of the most important ecological features of Gorongosa National Park, located in central Mozambique, in the East African Rift System. Understanding hydrology and ecology of the lake and its tributaries is particularly important for the conservation of the Park’s floodplain habitats and its biodiversity. There are concerns that hydrological boundary conditions and ecology of Lake Urema have changed in recent years. Possible causes for this change include climatic and land use changes as well as tectonic and geomorphological processes. In this study, a multi-temporal and multi-disciplinary approach was applied to investigate the dynamics and control mechanisms of Lake Urema.

Small mammals of the Zambezi wetlandsCotterill, F.2000




Small mammals make up a significant proportion of the mammal fauna of the Zambezi Basin. With the exception of the poorly known otter-shrew, Potamogale velox (known only from Mwinilunga District in NE Zambia), there are no specialized mammals occurring in the basin that are entirely dependent on wetlands. Yet wetlands are important habitats for small mammals; floodplains support fluctuating populations of rats and mice, as do riparian forests and woodlands, and shrews exploit the abundance of invertebrates found there. Bats are particularly well-adapted to exploit insect prey foraging over floodplains and open water, provided roosts are available on wetland margins.

Mangrove kingfishers (Halcyon senegaloides; Aves: Alcedinidae) nesting in arboreal Nasutitermes (Isoptera: Termitidae: Nasutitermitinae) termitaria in central MozambiqueDavies, G. Et al.2012




Across the world’s tropics at least six genera and more than 40 species of kingfisher (Alcedinidae) are known to nest in arboreal termite nests or termitaria (Fry et al., 1992). They form part of a tropicopolitan guild of arboreal termitaria nesters that includes trogons, parrots, barbets, woodpeckers, jacamars, and puffbirds (Hindwood, 1959; Brightsmith, 2000, 2004). Amongst the Afrotropical Halcyon kingfishers, the behaviour is best known from Central and West Africa where it is documented in three species: chocolate-backed (Halcyon badia), blue-breasted (H. maxima) and woodland (H. senegalensis subspecies fuscopilea) kingfishers (Chapin, 1939; Brosset and Erard, 1986; Fry et al., 1988, 1992; Clancey, 1992).

Stratified settlement and moulting competency of brachyuran megalopae in Ponta Rasa mangrove swamp, Inhaca Island (Mozambique)Paula, J.; Dornelas, M. & Flores, A.2003




Information on recruitment processes of mangrove crustaceans is very limited, in spite of the great importance of these environments for the coastal zone. This study describes the settlement patterns of brachyuran crabs at Ponta Rasa mangrove swamp, Inhaca Island, in order to assess if settlement patterns reflect adult distribution. Hoghair filter collectors were deployed at different strata within the mangrove, and at the adjacent intertidal flat as control. Sampling was conducted daily for a period of 82 days. The collected megalopae were reared in the laboratory to assess their moulting competency and to enable identification.

Analysis of water stable isotopes fingerprinting to inform conservation management: Lake Urema Wetland System, MozambiqueSteinbruch, F. & Weise, S.2014




The present study focusses on the analysis of water stable isotopes to contribute to understanding the hydrology of the Lake Urema wetland system in central Mozambique towards conservation management. Lake Urema Wetland is located in the Gorongosa National Park at the southernmost extent of the East African Rift System and is situated entirely within the Urema catchment. Of particular concern to the park’s management is the understanding of hydrological processes as these may trigger transformations of ecosystems, habitat losses and wildlife migrations. Concerns over the Lake Urema wetland’s drying up and the trapping of sediments in the floodplain have been raised for some time by conservationists.

Populations of the common hippopotamus Hippopotamus amphibius in Mozambique were surveyed in 2010 during a national survey of the crocodile Crocodylus niloticus. Numbers of hippos seen during aerial counts along major rivers and lake shores were corrected to allow for undercounting of groups and these data were supplemented with the results of other recent surveys. There are now estimated to be c. 3,000 hippos in Mozambique and c. 50%of these live in Lake Cabora Bassa or the Zambezi Rive

We interpret two-dimensional seismic reflection data from the Rovuma Delta basin deep-water fold-and-thrust belts. Two major arcuate complexes with different architecture and extent are identified.While in the northern Palma arcuate complex a multitude of steep, east-dipping thrust-related fold anticlines formed above a single main detachment, in the southern Mocimboa arcuate complex multiple detachments resulted in the formation of thrust duplexes. In between the two arcuate domains, only few thrust-related fold anticlines developed.

Carbon stocks of mangroves within the Zambezi River Delta, MozambiqueStringer, C. Et al.2015




Mangroves are well-known for their numerous ecosystem services, including storing a globally significant C pool. There is increasing interest in the inclusion of mangroves in national climate change mitigation and adaptation plans in developing nations as they become involved with incentive programs for climate change mitigation. The quality and precision of data required by these programs necessitates the use of an inventory approach that allows for quantification, rather than general characterization, of C stocks. In this study, we quantified the ecosystem C stock of the Zambezi River Delta mangroves utilizing a rigorous, yet operationally feasible approach.
