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.

Current status and distribution of the Vulnerable common hippopotamus Hippopotamus amphibius in MozambiqueMackie, C; Dunham, K. & Ghiurghi, A.2012




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

The Rovuma Delta deep-water fold-and-thrust belt, offshore MozambiqueMahanjane, E. & Franke, D.2014




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.

An Overview of the Impact of Mining and Mineral Processing Operations on Water Resources and Water Quality in the Zambezi, Limpopo and Olifants Catchments in Southern AfricaAshton, P. Et al.2001




The original Terms of Reference for this study (Research Topic 4) were extremely broad and required an overview of all mining impacts on the biophysical environment throughout southern Africa. Though this objective was desirable, and would provide an excellent background for management strategies in each of the SADC countries, it was unrealistic in view of the time and budget constraints. Therefore, the main focus of this research topic was restricted to water resources, in particular water quality, and attention confined to three key river basins, namely the Zambezi, Limpopo and Olifants basins. Whilst the revised Terms of Reference remain challenging, they represent a compromise that enabled a useful body of work to be produced.

Herpetological survey of the Niassa Game Reserve, northern Mozambique – Part I: ReptilesBranch, W.; Rodel, M-O. & Marais, J.2005




Significant contributions to the poorly known reptile fauna of northern Mozambique were made during a biodiversity survey of the Niassa Game Reserve (NGR), situated in northern Mozambique, bordering Tanzania. Of approximately 100 reptile species currently known from northern Mozambique, 57 species were recorded from the NGR. Important discoveries included: a new species of girdled lizard (Cordylus sp.) in rock cracks on the summit outcrops of Serra Mecula; the first national records of Melanoseps sp. and Lygodactylus angularis (both isolated populations are atypical and further studies are required to assess their taxonomic status).

Larvae of 2 species of gryporhynchid tapeworms (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea) were found in common carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) from Mozambique, Africa. Metacestodes of Parvitaenia samfyia Mettrick, 1967, a species never reported since the original description of its adults from herons (Ardeidae) in Zambia were found in the intestinal wall, whereas larvae of an unidentified species of Cyclustera Fuhrmann, 1901, closely resembling Cyclustera magna (Baer, 1959), a species with larvae previously reported from Tillapia zillii (Gervais) in Africa, were encapsulated in the liver of carp. Larval stages of both gryporhynchids are reported from fish for the first time.

A new species of the freshwater crab genus Potamonautes MacLeay, 1838, is described from Gorongosa National Park in Sofala Province, Mozambique, southern Africa. Potamonautes gorongosa, new species, is morphologically and phylogenetically distinct from the other species of Potamonautes found in Mozambique and nearby countries, and is most closely related to Potamonautes mutareensis Phiri and Daniels, 2013, from eastern Zimbabwe. Th e new species diff ers from this species and its other congeners by a unique combination of morphological characters of the fi rst gonopod, the anterior sternum, third maxilliped, and the major cheliped.

Does the Limpopo River Basin have sufficient water for massive irrigation development in the plains of Mozambique?der Zaag, P. Et al.2010




This paper verifies whether the water resources of the transboundary Limpopo River Basin are sufficient for the planned massive irrigation developments in the Mozambique part of this basin, namely 73,000 ha, in addition to existing irrigation (estimated at 9400 ha), and natural growth of common use irrigation (4000 ha). This development includes the expansion of sugar cane production for the production of ethanol as a biofuel. Total additional water requirements may amount to 1.3  109 m3/a or more. A simple river basin simulation model was constructed in order to assess different irrigation development scenarios, and at two storage capacities of the existing Massingir dam.

As cheias sempre fizeram parte da história do Rio Zambeze e mesmo tendo impactos negativos os seus benefícios eram superiores na vida do rio. As enchentes trazem os sedimentos ricos em nutrientes, alimentam as áreas húmidas, limpam os canais, braços e afluentes, e muito mais. No passado, o regime de cheias altamente previsíveis do Rio Zambeze permitiu o surgimento de práticas tradicionais e sistemas sociais que dependiam e beneficiavam do funcionamento natural do rio.

Distribution, structure and simulation modelling of the Wattled Crane population in the Marromeu Complex of the Zambezi Delta, MozambiqueBento, C.; Beilfuss, R. & Hockey, P.2007




The status of the Vulnerable Wattled Crane (Grus carunculatus) in Mozambique is poorly known, but historical accounts indicate that the species was previously more abundant and widespread than today. Annual surveys during 1995–2002 suggest a core population of about 120 breeding pairs remains in the Zambezi Delta region. Wattled Cranes in the delta are exclusively associated with sedges of the genus Eleocharis, the tubers of which provide the adult cranes’ main food supply. The main Eleocharis areas in the delta, and those supporting the highest density of Wattled Cranes, occur below the adjacent Cheringoma escarpment, where unregulated streams flow onto the floodplain.
