Review of Baeolidia, the largest genus of Aeolidiidae (Mollusca: Nudibranchia), with the description of five new speciesCarmona et al2014




This paper discusses the systematics of the aeolid genus Baeolidia Bergh, 1888. To date, this monophyletic genus is the most diverse within Aeolidiidae with sixteen valid species. Excluding Baeolidia cryoporos Bouchet, 1977, the genus is restricted to the Indo-Pacific and Eastern Pacific. Species of Baeolidia show a huge intrageneric variability in several morphological characters. Only oral glands, if present, may distinguish Baeolidia from other aeolidiids genera. Five new species, Baeolidia rieae sp. nov., Baeolidia variabilis sp. nov., Baeolidia lunaris sp. nov., Baeolidia gracilis sp. nov. and Baeolidia scottjohnsoni sp. nov. are described.

African wild dog Conservation Research Project – MozambiqueAndré, Jean-Marc2010


2003-2010


The African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) is one of the carnivores the most threatened with extinction in the world (listed as “Endangered”, with criteria C2a(i), in the IUCN Red Data Book, 2008), the second most endangered (after the Ethiopian wolf, Canis simensis) of the only continent it inhabits and the first in sub-Saharan Africa. In 2004, the species has been completely extirpated from 25 of the 39 countries it once occupied. This document shows the results of the determination of African wild dog distribution and abundance in the 9 northern districts of the Sofala province, the role of extrinsic ecological factors on African wild dog population, its interactions with other carnivore and with people living in the area.




Included in this document: "Conservation status and ecology of the endangered African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) in Mozambique" - Fieldwork session 2003-2004: the northern Sofala province (incl. Gorongosa NP & Marromeu Complex) “Conservation reinforcement through advanced research on a highly vulnerable population of African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) in the northern Sofala province, central Mozambique.” - Preliminary scientific report on the 2008-2009 fieldwork session “Conservation reinforcement through advanced research on a highly vulnerable population of African wild dog (Lycaon pictus) in the northern Sofala province, central Mozambique.” - Preliminary scientific report on the 2010 fieldwork session

A Handbook of Environmental ManagementLovett, J. & Ockwell, D.2010




Environmental management has risen from being the task of technical natural resource specialists to being the concern of everyone on the planet. This has led to a rapid expansion in the range of jobs dealing with environmental issues. Not only are ecologists, conservationists, hunters, farmers and fishers involved; we now also have professionals in social science fields such as environmental economics, law and politics.

Proceedings of the National Workshop on Integrated Coastal Zone Management in MozambiqueWorld Bank & Sida1997


1996


Widespread poverty, together with rapid population growth and inappropriate or poorly planned development, have resulted in environmental degradation and resource depletion in many areas along the coast. This has resulted in increasing conflicts among coastal inhabitants. To address issues of coastal destruction and resource overuse, better methods for environmental and natural resources management are needed. One way of increasing awareness of the need for improved coastal management at the political and executive level is to arrange seminars and workshops, where policy-makers, heads of government agencies and others can meet to discuss the issues. This volume presents the proceedings of the fourth national workshop.

Patterns of vegetation change in the Zambezi Delta, MozambiqueBeilfuss et al2001




Water resources development projects have substantially altered the hydrological regime of the Zambezi Delta. The cumulative impact of these developments is a significant shift in the magnitude, timing, duration, and frequency of flooding in the delta. The implications of these hydrological changes on vegetation communities in the delta must be considered in the context of the hydrogeomorphic conditions and disturbance processes that control vegetation distribution and abundance.

The story of the elusive Dugongs of BazarutoMcCreesh, C.s.d.




This is a story of how a large sanguine, sea grass-eating mammal humbled and taught me about the inter-connectedness of life and the impact we human beings are having on our planet and each other. It is also a story of a dream of committed people; one that remains tantalisingly close but is a long way from being fulfilled. In short, it is a story that is incomplete and this is only the first chapter.

Adaptation and Learning in Coastal Management: The Experience of Five East African InitiativesTorell, E.2000




This article explores principles of adaptive, learning-based resource management and their practical application in coastal management projects in East Africa. The principles of feedback and adjustment, experimentation, and carefully guided participatory processes that capture widespread knowledge are used to describe the experience of five projects in Kenya, Tanzania and Mozambique. The findings are drawn from a variety of sources, including site visits and interviews. The main finding is that adaptive methods are a major feature of all projects and the general approaches used in each case are similar.

Appraisal of the Potential for Rhino Conservation in MozambiqueDunham, K.2004




During 1870, both the white rhino and the black rhino were reported west of the Limpopo River, between its confluences with the Elefantes and Nuanetsi Rivers. But by the late 1950s, excessive hunting had caused the extinction of the white rhino in Mozambique and the black rhino was extinct south of the Save River. This document evaluate the feasibility and the reintroduction options for rhinos in Limpopo National Park, Zinave National Park and Gile Game Reserve. Some preliminary guidelines for the development of a rhino conservation policy for Mozambique are also given.

Are fiddler crabs potentially useful ecosystem engineers in mangrove wastewater wetlands?Penha-Lopes, G. et al2009




The effect of different organic-rich sewage concentration and absence or presence of mangrove trees on the survival, bioturbation activities and burrow morphology of fiddler crabs species was assessed. After 6 months, males of both species always showed higher survival when compared to females. Crabs inhabiting pristine conditions achieved higher survival than those living in sewage-exposed mesocosms . At 60% sewage loading, fiddler crabs processed less sediment during feeding and excavated slightly more sediment than at pristine conditions. While percent volume of the burrow chambers increased at contaminated mesocosms for both vegetation conditions, burrows were shallower in bare cells loaded with sewage.

Protecting East Africa’s marine and coastal biodiversity. Marine Conservation Agreements in the Western Indian OceanRocliffe, S. & Udelhoven, J.2011




Commercial enterprises have been acquiring rights to marine and coastal areas for centuries for fisheries, energy and other uses. Increasingly, by using Marine Conservation Agreements, organisations like The Nature Conservancy (TNC) have begun to acquire similar rights for purposes that safeguard marine resources and benefit local communities. The Conservancy is developing a wide-ranging analysis of the role and feasibility of MCAs in key regions worldwide. This report examines one such region – the Western Indian Ocean (WIO) – and documents findings from an analysis of the ocean and coastal legal frameworks in Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Madagascar, Seychelles and South Africa.

Satellite tracking of migrating loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) displaced in the open seaLuschi et al2003




Loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) are known to migrate towards fixed, individually-specific residential feeding grounds. To study their spatial behaviour and their navigational ability, five loggerheads nesting in South Africa were captured when about to start their postnesting migration and tracked by satellite after having been displaced from their usual migratory route.

Marine turtle interaction with purse-seine fishery in the Atlantic and Indian oceans: Lessons for managementBourjea et al2014


1995-2011


Bycatch of endangered marine turtles is a growing issue for the management of all fisheries, including the oceanic purse-seine fishery. The aim of this study was to assess the spatial and temporal variation in bycatch rates of these species in the entire European purse-seine fishery operating in the Atlantic and Indian oceans. The study was based on data collected through observer programs from 1995 to 2011. During that period, a total of 15 913 fishing sets were observed, including 6 515 on Drifting Fish Aggregating Devices (DFADs) and 9 398 on free swimming schools, representing a global coverage of 10.3% and 5.1% of the total fishing activity in the Atlantic and Indian Ocean, respectively.

Chez les tortues marines, la migration est un processus indispensable tout au long de leur cycle biologique. Décrire et caractériser le cycle spatial des tortues marines est donc nécessaire pour définir une stratégie de conservation efficace à long terme. Nous avons étudié, grâce à la télémétrie satellitaire, la dynamique spatiale de deux espèces à différents stades de leur vie : 105 tortues vertes adultes Chelonia mydas en migration post reproductive dans le Sud-ouest de l’océan Indien (SOOI), et 18 tortues caouannes juvéniles Caretta caretta en phase océanique capturées accidentellement par la pêcherie palangrière réunionnaise.

Ecological Studies on the Shores of Moçambique. The Fauna of Intertidal Rocks at Inhaca Island, Delagoa Bay.Kalk, M.1958




The fauna of the 2,000-mile shore line of South Africa has been extensively investigated, but very little is known of the ecology of the adjacent 1,OOO-mile stretch of the Moyambique coast of East Africa. The exposed rocks nearest to Inhaca Island, that have been described, are at Isipingo near Durban, Natal, nearly 300 miles south, and the nearest sheltered rocks in Durban Bay. Many tropical Indo-Pacific species from the coast of Moçambique have been described by taxonomists in their publications on the South African fauna. The sites selected for the investigation of the rock fauna at Inhaca may be germane to the general problem of the distribution of marine intertidal organisms.

Ecology of tropical hermit crabs at Quirimba Island, Mozambique: distribution, abundance and activityBarnes, D.1997




A diverse assemblage of 16 species of hermit crabs occurs on the shores of the Quirimba Archipelago, northern Mozambique. Each species illustrated marked zonation such that they formed a distinct sequence from the subtidal across the wide intertidal zone to the supra-littoral. In addition to shore height zonation, there was distinct variation in type and range of habitat preferences. Of the 5 study islands, Quirimba and Quisiva had the greatest intertidal habitat variety and the largest number of resident hermit crab species.

Description of Monoleptoides gen. nov. from the Afrotropical Region, including the revision of nine species (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Galerucinae)Wagner, Thomas2011




Due to their specific external and genitalic patterns, several species of Afrotropical Galerucines, most of them originally described in Monolepta Chevrolat, 1837 and Candezea Chapuis, 1879, are transferred to the new genus Monoleptoides. This group is phylogenetically well defined and comprises nine previously described species, some of them well known, abundant, and widely distributed in tropical Africa. Detailed descriptions for the generotype, Monoleptoides duplicata and redescriptions of all species, as well as an identification key are given. Collection data are recorded in detail for the 1190 specimens studied, and summarized in distribution maps.

The Zambezi RiverMoore et al2007




The Zambezi rises with considerable modesty in northwest Zambia from a small spring on the gentle upland of the Southern Equatorial Divide – the watershed that separates the river from north-west-flowing tributaries of the Congo. For some 30 km, the Zambezi head-waters flow to the north, towards the Congo, but then the course swings to the south-west, around a low ridge of Karoo sandstone known as Kalene Hill. This direction is maintained for a further 200 km into Angola before the river finally turns south-eastwards to the Indian Ocean. The aim of this chapter is to provide a description of the Zambezi, with particular focus on the contrasting geomorphological character of the three sectors of the river.

Global phylogeography of the leatherback turtle (Dermochelys coriacea)Dutton et al1999




Analyses of mitochondrial (mt) DNA control region sequences from 175 leatherback turtles Dermochelys coriacea from 10 nesting colonies revealed shallow phylogenetic structuring of maternal lineages on a global scale. Eleven haplotypes were observed, and mean estimated sequence divergence, p = 0.00581, is much lower than the deepest nodes reported in global mtDNA surveys of the green turtle Chelonia mydas, loggerhead Caretta caretta, and ridley turtles Lepidochelys spp. The leatherback turtle is the product of an evolutionary trajectory originating at least 100 million years ago, yet the intraspecific phylogeny recorded in mitochondrial lineages may trace back less than 900 000 years.

Philatelic LepidopteraSmith, M1954




Many entomologists who are also philatelists are collectors of insects on stamps. These include bees and beehives, mosquitoes, dragonflies, a praying mantis, termitaria, and several beetles, but by far the greatest number are butterflies or moths. The 20-value set issued by Mozambique, and the four most recent Pro Juventude sets of Switzerland, all in full natural color, should do much to interest collectors in this special field. Fourteen stamp-issuing countries, from 1902 through 1953, have issued a total of ninety-nine stamps of forty-six different designs, showing forty-three species of butterflies, moths, or their caterpillars.

Nest site fidelity and nest site selection of loggerhead, Caretta caretta, and leatherback, Dermochelys coriacea, turtles in Kwazulu-Natal, South AfricaBotha, M.2010




Loggerhead and leatherback sea turtles nest on the beaches of the north-eastern portion of Kwazulu-Natal within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. Loggerheads place ~60 % of all nests within an 8 km stretch of beach, whereas leatherbacks tend to space their nests more evenly along the entire length of the monitoring area. The study aimed to determine nest site fidelity of loggerheads and leatherbacks and the factors that influence nest site selection of both species within the 56 km of turtle monitoring area (32N to 100S) and the 5 km area of high-density loggerhead nesting (0N to 12N). The effectiveness of nest site selection was then determined through the hatching success of loggerheads over the 5km area (0N to 12N).

Description of two new species of Zinophora Chamberlin, 1927 (Diplopoda: Spirostreptida: Harpagophoridae), with discussion of species groups in the genusRedman et al2010




The millipede genus Zinophora (Chamberlin, 1927) was previously revised based on the species present south of the Zambezi and Kunene Rivers. Since that revision, two additional new species have been discovered and are here described: Zinophora lobata (Mozambique) and Z. taromberai (Zimbabwe and Tanzania). This brings the total number of described species in the genus to 21. An updated key to species in the genus is presented. Detailed illustrations of the gonopods supplement the descriptions and a distribution map of Z. taromberai in Zimbabwe is provided. There appear to be up to three species groups in the genus and the character states defining these groups are discussed.

The genus Anisomysis (Crustacea: Mysidae) from the east coast of South Africa – descriptions of three new species, and range extensions of two known speciesConnell, Allan D.2009




Three new species of Mysidae, of the genus Anisomysis, are described. Two of these, Anisomysis (Anisomysis) pescaprae sp. nov. and A. (Anisomysis) neptuni sp. nov., were collected on reef in at a depth of 20–40 m, within the Aliwal Shoal Marine Protected Area, about 60 km south of Durban on the KwaZulu-Natal shelf. Both belong to the subgenus Anisomysis, and each possesses a uniquely shaped telson which immediately identifies the species. In shallow, sheltered waters adjacent to the derelict and partly submerged Vetch’s Pier in the southern corner of the Durban beachfront, the third new species, Anisomysis (Paranisomysis) sudafricana sp. nov., was found in small shoals.
