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).

New Metacestodes of Gryporhynchid Tapeworms (Cestoda: Cyclophyllidea) from Carp (Cyprinus carpio Linnaeus, 1758) from Mozambique, AfricaScholz, T.; Boane, C. & Saraiva, A.2008




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 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.

Multilocus Phylogeny of the Afrotropical Freshwater Crab Fauna Reveals Historical Drainage Connectivity and Transoceanic Dispersal Since the EoceneDaniels, S. Et al.2015




Phylogenetic reconstruction, divergence time estimations and ancestral range estimation were undertaken for 66% of the Afrotropical freshwater crab fauna (Potamonautidae) based on four partial DNA loci (12S rRNA, 16S rRNA, cytochrome oxidase one [COI], and histone 3). The present study represents the most comprehensive taxonomic sampling of any freshwater crab family globally, and explores the impact of paleodrainage interconnectivity on cladogenesis among freshwater crabs. Phylogenetic analyses of the total evidence data using maximum-likelihood (ML), maximum parsimony (MP), and Bayesian inference (BI) produced a robust statistically-well-supported tree topology that reaffirmedthemonophyly of the Afrotropical freshwater crab fauna.

Freshwater crabs of Africa: diversity, distribution, and conservationCumberlidge, N.2011




freshwater crabs are among the most important invertebrates inhabiting african inland waters, and these large and conspicuous crustaceans are present in almost all freshwater habitats, from mountain streams to large lowland rivers and smaller water bodies (rathbun 1921; Balss 1936; Bott 1955; Cumberlidge 1999; yeo et al. 2008). The present work focuses on the freshwater crabs of continental africa, which includes northern africa in the Palaearctic zoogeographical zone, and the rest of the african continent that lies in the afrotropical zone.

Quantifying the density of mangrove crabs: Ocypodidae and GrapsidaeSkov, M. Et al.2002




Numerous studies have highlighted the importance of crabs within mangrove ecosystems, but tested methods of enumeration are virtually non-existent. The aim of the present study was to assess the accuracy of quick, non-invasive methods for estimating the population density of three species of mangrove crabs in East Africa: Uca annulipes, Sesarma guttatum and Neosarmatium meinerti. Methods employed depended on the behaviour and habitat of each species. Counts of U. annulipes and N. meinerti individuals that were active on the surface (visual counts) and burrow counts (of U. annulipes) were compared to actual densities.

Diel behaviour of tuna and non-tuna species at drifting fish aggregating devices (DFADs) in the Western Indian Ocean, determined by fishers’ echo-sounder buoysLopez, J. Et al.2017




As tropical pelagic species are attracted by floating objects in the surface of the ocean, industrial purse seiners deploy thousands of man-made drifting fish aggregating devices (DFADs) to facilitate their catch of tunas. However, the sharp increase in the use of DFADs leads to some ecological concerns, such as producing higher amount of by-catch or alteration of natural behaviour of fish. We used fishers’ satellite-linked GPS buoys equipped with echo-sounders to continuously collect acoustic samples under remote DFADs and investigate the diel behaviour patterns of the associated fish (i.e., non-tuna species and small and large tunas) and their potential biological interactions.

Sea Turtle Bycatch in the West Indian Ocean: Review, Recommendations and Research PrioritiesBourjea, J. Et al.2008




Within the framework of the FAO project GCP/INT/919/JPN and a review of published or available data, the relative importance of fishery-related sea turtle mortality in the West Indian Ocean region was assessed for Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Maldives, Mozambique, Seychelles, Somalia, South Africa, Reunion, Tanzania and Yemen. Three fisheries were identified to significantly impact marine turtles: gillnetting, prawn/shrimp trawling and longlining, but it clearly appears that there is a global lack of published and reliable information regarding marine turtle population assessments and interaction with fisheries in the WIO.

This paper provides information on the length-length (fork-length, FL with pectoral length, PL and first dorsal length, LD1) and length-weight relationships of albacore tuna (Thunnus alalunga) in five regions of the Western Indian Ocean. Data were obtained for a total of 923 female and 867 male albacore, caught by different fishing gears, and sampled from 2013 to 2015. The regression coefficients of the different relationships are presented. Possible causes of variations in length-weight, including tissue weights (gonad, liver and the rest of the viscera), sex and region are assessed using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and linear regressions on log-transformed equations of length and weight.

Bodianus atrolumbus (Valenciennes 1839), a valid species of labrid fish from the southwest Indian OceanRandall, J. & Victor, B.2013




Bodianus atrolumbus (Valenciennes 1839), a labrid fish of the southwest Indian Ocean (type locality Mauritius), was placed in the synonymy of B. perditio (Quoy & Gaimard), antitropical in the Pacific Ocean (type locality Tonga), by Smith (1949) who reported the first record for southern Africa. Juveniles of both species are mostly the same in color, featuring a white bar in the middle of the body, followed dorsally by a large black area. The white bar develops into an oval yellow area dorsally on the body in B. perditio, whereas it narrows to a spindleshaped whitish to pink mark on the upper body that extends below the lateral line in B. atrolumbus.

Comparing EIA Procedures and Contents in Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique And EURebelo, C. & Guerreiro, J.S/D




This work will provide a comparative overview of EIA procedures and contents in these three countries and in the EU. The differences are outlined and, in particular, it can be said that the EIA must be carried out by registered experts in the three countries, although such is not specified in the EU Directive. In Tanzania public consultation is mandatory during the scoping, and in Kenya the EIA study report should contain measures to prevent health hazards, to ensure employee safety within the work environment and for emergency management.
