Patterns of vegetation change in the Zambezi Delta, Mozambique




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.
