What the Kidunda Dam will Destroy: Ecological and Socio-economic Value of Gonabis, Selous Game Reserve, TanzaniaDevesh Rustagi2005


2005


As many as 43 mammal species or 13 % of all mammal species found in Tanzania are considered as threatened by the IUCN. This number has increased from 33 (10 %) in 1996 to 43 (13 %) in 2000, in a mere span of four years. Of these, five species are considered as critically endangered, 11 as endangered and 27 as vulnerable. The main cause behind this situation is ascribed to conflict between people, wildlife and respective protected areas and failure of the institutions to reflect the actual value of these resources. In the past few years, the Government of Tanzania has taken positive steps to ameliorate the interests of conservationists and local communities by introducing the concept of WMAs, a new category of protected area where people...

Biodiversity Values, Threats and Conservation Strategies of the Selous – Niassa Wildlife Corridor, TanzaniaUrs Bloesch, Mittelstr and Rudolf Hahn2007


2007


The Selous-Niassa miombo woodlands of southern Tanzania and northern Mozambique are one of the largest and for the global biodiversity most significant, trans-boundary natural ecosystem in Africa, covering over 154,000 km2. The Selous-Niassa Wildlife Corridor serves as migratory route between the Selous and the Niassa Game Reserves hosting the world’s largest elephant, buffalo and sable populations. The Corridor will be protected with a network of WMAs (Wildlife Management Area) under the management of Authorised Associations excluding any agricultural activity. This aims to empower local communities in the natural resource management in view of improving their livelihoods and maintaining the integrity of the wildlife corridor and its...

Mozambique Country Water Resources Assistance Strategy: Making Water Work for Sustainable Growth and Poverty ReductionObiageli K. Ezekwesili, Michael Baxter, Jaime M. Biderman, Len Abrams2007


2007


Mozambique’s continuous efforts to sustain economic growth and reduce poverty face a number of constraints including its economic and political history, and its geography and climatic conditions. It is widely accepted that future economic growth of the country will continue to rely on its natural resources base and, specifically, on sustainable use of land and water resources. Mozambique has plentiful land and water resources that provide great potential for the production of a variety of crops, livestock development and industrial growth. However, high climate variability resulting in frequent recurrent droughts and floods, limited water resources availability in the most developed southern part of the country, high dependency on...

Population Structure and Diversity in Finger Millet (Eleusine coracana) GermplasmMathews M. Dida & Nelson Wanyera & Melanie L. Harrison Dunn & Jeffrey L. Bennetzen & Katrien M. Devos2008


2008


A genotypic analysis of 79 finger millet accessions (E. coracana subsp. coracana) from 11 African and five Asian countries, plus 14 wild E. coracana subsp. africana lines collected in Uganda and Kenya was conducted with 45 SSR markers distributed across the finger millet genome. Phylogenetic and population structure analyses showed that the E. coracana germplasm formed three largely distinct subpopulations, representing subsp. africana, subsp. coracana originating from Africa and subsp. coracana originating from Asia. A few lines showed admixture between the African and Asian cultivated germplasm pools and were the result of either targeted or accidental...

Mission Report-Reactive Monitoring Mission Selous Game Reserve (United Republic of Tanzania) 23-30 November 2008Guy Debonnet & Ed Wilson2008


2008


From 23 to 30 November 2008, a joint World Heritage Centre/IUCN monitoring mission visited the Selous Game Reserve (SGR) and World Heritage property in accordance Decision 32 COM 7B.4, adopted by the World Heritage Committee at its 32nd session (Quebec City, 2008). The mission was a follow up to the earlier mission undertaken in 2007, which, because of logistical constraints, had only been able to visit the part of the property north of the Rufiji river, which is open to photographic tourism. At its 31st session (Christchurch, 2007), the Committee therefore recommended that a further monitoring mission be organized to focus on the area south of the Rufiji river, which is open to regulated sports hunting. The current mission looked into...

Wild edible mushrooms and their marketing potential in the Selous-Niassa Wildlife Corridor, TanzaniaUrs Bloesch & Frank Mbago2009


2008


A first field study was carried from 21/1 to 31/1/08 including a) a preliminary assessment of wild mushrooms of the Selous-Niassa Wildlife Corridor which are edible or having medicinal uses, b) the description of the mushroom growing habitats, and c) a first investigation about the marketing of wild edible mushrooms (species, conditioning, existing local markets) in profit of the local communities. This second more in depth analysis is based on further fieldwork realised from 28/2 – 21/3/09. This field trip was carried out later in the rainy season what allowed to assess a wider range of edible mushrooms since the fructification and collection period of many mushrooms is highly seasonal. The second study completes the wild edible mushroom..

Rubies from the Niassa and Cabo Delgado regions of Northern MozambiqueVincent Pardieu, Jitlapit Thanachakaphad, Stephane Jacquat, Jean Baptiste Senoble and Lou Pierre Bryl2009


2009


During the past few months, new rubies reported as “Mozambique” appeared in the market in Bangkok and Chanthaburi: After some enquiries in Thailand, Tanzania and Mozambique it seems that this new material is coming from an area near the famous Niassa National Park in Northern Mozambique. At the end of October 2008, Tanzanian broker Abdul M’sellem informed one of the authors (VP) that some new unknown material quite similar to the Winza stones but from another origin probably in the south of Tanzania started to be available in the Mpwapwa gem market, located near the Winza mining area in Tanzania. M’sellem reported that some Tanzanian gem dealers recently started to travel to Songea and Namtumbo to get these stones. After further enquiri...

2009


The most common grass phytoliths from “Zambezian” miombos are described here for the first time. Their potential for long term preservation in sediments makes them a useful tool in the reconstruction of ancient plant communities and plant/human interactions. We processed 60 plant samples (26 identified genera and species), with an average of 300 phytoliths counted per sample to a total of 18,586. Forty- seven morpho types were described as per the International Code for Phytolith Nomenclature, with exceptions, including forty-five discreet shapes and two articulated forms, which can be used as comparative reference materials. We conducted three forms of statistical analyses: Discriminant Analysis, Cluster Analysis, and Principal Compon...

MIOMBO ECOREGION VISION REPORTJonathan Timberlake & Emmanuel Chidumayo2011


2001


The Miombo Ecoregion Vision Report was commissioned in 2001 by the Southern Africa Regional Programme Office of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF SARPO). It represented the culmination of an ecoregion reconnaissance process led by Bruce Byers (see Byers 2001a, 2001b), followed by an ecoregion-scale mapping process of taxa and areas of interest or importance for various ecological and bio-physical parameters. The report was then used as a basis for more detailed discussions during a series of national workshops held across the region in the early part of 2002. The main purpose of the reconnaissance and visioning process was to initially outline the bio-physical extent and properties of the so-called Miombo Ecoregion (in practice, a coll...

Management costs for small protected areas and economies of scale in habitat conservationPaul R. Armsworth, Lisette Cantú-Salazar, Mark Parnell, Zoe G. Davies, Rob Stoneman2010


2010


Protected area management must be resourced adequately to achieve its conservation objectives. The variability in management costs across candidate sites for protection therefore should inform conservation planning. For example, when considering whether to accept a donation of a property, a conservation organisation must determine whether an adequate endowment is available to fund future management activities. We examine variation in management costs across 78 small protected areas in the UK that are managed by a conservation NGO, the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. Management costs exceed acquisition costs when funded on an endowment basis and are not correlated with acquisition costs or with proxy measures for conservation costs commonly...

Cycloderma frenatum Peters 1854 – Zambezi Flapshell Turtle, NkhasiDonald G. Broadley and Walter SachSSe2011


2011


The Zambezi Flapshell Turtle, Cycloderma frenatum (Family Trionychidae), is a fairly large softshell (carapace length up to about 56 cm) from southeastern Africa. It is found in rivers and lakes from southern Tanzania south to the Save River in Mozambique, extending west to Lake Malawi (Nyasa), where it is common in the shallower areas at the southern end of the lake. These are fast swimming, completely aquatic turtles of about 37–50 cm shell length, which are mostly caught as bycatch in large nets by local fishermen. In areas with human settlements, the nests are excavated during the breeding season (December–March) and the 15–25 eggs per clutch are consumed...

A landscape approach to elephant conservation in MozambiqueCornélio Pedro Ntumi, Rudi J. van Aarde & Sam M. Ferreira2012


2012


People and elephants share landscapes throughout Mozambique. Here elephant conservation management focuses on protected areas but fails to address the conflict that exists between elephants and people. In this thesis I develop a landscape approach to conflict mitigation that is designed to accommodate the needs of people and of elephants in human-dominated landscapes. Mozambique faces a dilemma: politically it is required to reduce poverty while at the same time adhere to international agreements and requirements to protect biodiversity with relatively scarce financial resources. Reactive mitigation of human-elephant conflict (HEC) at the site-specific scale have proven to be costly and with low efficacy. A shift from reactive to proacti...

A critical revision of the churchill snoutfish, genus Petrocephalus Marcusen, 1854 (Actinopterygii: Teleostei: Mormyridae), from southern and eastern Africa, with the recognition of Petrocephalus tanensis, and the description of five new speciesBernd Kramera, Roger Bills, Paul Skelton and Michael Wink2012


2011


We morphologically and genetically studied the southern African electric fish Petrocephalus catostoma, or churchill, and its six nominal species, five of which by synonymization (three valid subspecies). We reinstate the synonymized species, and recognize Petrocephalus tanensis (Whitehead and Greenwood, 1959) from the Tana River in Kenya, also using electric organ discharges. The Okavango delta (Botswana) is inhabited by Petrocephalus okavangensis sp. nov. and Petrocephalus magnitrunci sp. nov., and the Namibian Cunene River by Petrocephalus magnoculis sp. nov. We recognize Petrocephalus petersi sp. nov. for the Lower Zambezi River (Mozambique), and Petrocephalus longicapitis sp. nov. for the Upper Zambezi River (Namibia). The Lufubu...

Evaluation of streamflow estimates for the Rovuma RiverM.R. Minihane2012


2012


Reliable estimates of historic streamflow are important when estimating future flows and water resources availability based on factors such as climate change, population growth, and changes in land use or land cover. Many regions across the globe have limited streamflow observations. Additional information about streamflow in these basins is critical to water resources planning and economic development strategies. In southeastern Africa, the remote Rovuma River lies on the border between Mozambique and Tanzania. There are limited historic measurements in the main tributary, the Lugenda River, and no publicly available observations from recent years. Improved knowledge of the water resources availability and seasonal and annual variabilit...

2013


Earlier studies investigated the genetic structure of fragmented or isolated elephant populations by comparing the genetic characteristics of pre-defined populations. This study aimed to determine if there was genetic evidence for spatial structuring in a continuous elephant population in the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA-TFCA). I sequenced one mtDNA gene region for 88 individuals and genotyped 100 individuals for 10 nuclear microsatellite loci. Bayesian Clustering Algorithms incorporated in the program Geneland were used to identify groups of genetically similar individuals. An Analysis of Molecular Variance (AMOVA) determined if these groups (henceforth referred to as sub- populations) were significantly...

2013


Como qualquer outro desastre natural, os incêndios tem vindo a influenciar os ecossistemas, provocando constantes mudanças. Nem todos os ecossistemas estão adaptados para o aumento em termos de frequência e tamanho dos incêndios florestais. A incidência de incêndios em termos de tamanho, frequência e intensidade tem aumentado significativamente na Reserva Nacional do Niassa. Os esforços para a prevenção por forma a reduzir a frequência e intensidade do fogo ainda são insuficientes. Além disso, a produção de mapas de risco de incêndio ainda é bastante reduzida em Moçambique. A capacidade de prever a ocorrência de ignição do fogo constitui um instrumento importante para os gestores, ajudando a definir as prioridades entre as áreas de risc...

Th e rapid and often unplanned expansion of cities is exposing more people and economic assets to the risk of disasters and the effects of climate change. For city governments, increased climate variability imposes additional challenges to effective urban management and the delivery of key services, while for residents it increasingly affects their lives and livelihoods due to more frequent floods, landslides, heat waves, droughts, and fi res. Th ere is an urgent need for cities to consider disaster and climate change by streamlining assessments of related risks in their planning and management as well as delivery of services. Th is paper proposes a framework for carrying out urban risk assessment, and seeks to strengthen coherence...

RAINFALL VARIABILITY IN SOUTHERN AFRICA, ITS INFLUENCES ON STREAMFLOW VARIATIONS AND ITS RELATIONSHIPS WITH CLIMATIC V AR1ATIONSPATRICK V ALIMBA2004


2004


Hydrological variability involving rainfall and streamflows in southern Africa have been often studied separately or have used cumulative rainfall and streamflow indices. The main objective of this study was to investigate spatio-temporal variations of rainfall, their influences on streamflows and their relationships with climatic variations with emphasis on indices that characterise the hydrological extremes, floods and droughts. It was found that 60-70% of the time when it rains, daily rainfalls are below their long-term averages and daily amounts below 10 mm are the most frequent in southern Africa. Spatially, climatologies of rainfall sub-divided the southern African subcontinent into the dry western/southwestern part and the “humid”...

Progress and Challenges in Urban Climate Adaptation Planning-Results of a Global SurveyJoAnn Carmin, Nikhil Nadkarni, and Christopher Rhie2012


2012


Cities around the world are increasingly aware of the need to prepare for greater variability in temperature, precipitation, and natural disasters expected to take place as a result of global climate change. In recent years, numerous reports and manuals have been written and networks formed to offer guidance and facilitate the exchange of ideas and information. However, since systematic studies have not been conducted, the information and methods being disseminated often are based on the efforts of a limited number of cities and wisdom drawn from experience in other domains. To gain insight into the status of adaptation planning globally, approaches cities around the world are taking, and challenges they are encountering, a survey was...

Integrated mapping of groundwater drought risk in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) regionKaren G. Villholth & Christian Tøttrup & Martin Stendel & Ashton Maherry2013


2012


Groundwater drought denotes the condition and hazard during a prolonged meteorological drought when groundwater resources decline and become unavailable or inaccessible for human use. Groundwater drought risk refers to the combined physical risk and human vulnerability associated with diminished groundwater availability and access during drought. An integrated management support tool, GRiMMS, is presented, for the mapping and assessment of relative groundwater drought risk in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region. Based on composite mapping analysis of regionwide gridded relative indices of meteorological drought risk, hydrogeological drought proneness and human groundwater drought vulnerability, the mapping results...

Glacial and early Holocene-age sediments from lakes on Mt. Kenya have documented strong responses of montane hydrology, ecosystems, and carbon cycling to past changes in temperature and atmospheric CO2 concentrations. However, little is known about climate and ecosystemvariations on Mt. Kenya during the Common Era (the past ~2000 years), despite mounting evidence for significant climate changes in the East African lowlands during the past millennium and recent observations of alpine glacier retreat in the East African highlands. We present a new, high-resolution record of the hydrogen and carbon isotopic composition of terrestrial plantwax compounds (δDwax, δ13Cwax) preserved in the sediments of Sacred Lake from 200C.E. to the end of the...

A 350-year-long, well-dated d18O stalagmite record from the summer rainfall region in South Africa is positively correlated with regional air surface temperatures at interannual time scales. The coldest period documented in this record occurred between 1690 and 1740, slightly lagging the Maunder Minimum (1645– 1710). A temperature reconstruction, based on the correlation between regional surface temperatures and the stalagmite d18O variations, indicates that parts of this period could have been as much as 1.46C colder than today. Significant cycles of 22, 11 and 4.8 years demonstrate that the solar magnetic and the El Nin˜o-Southern Oscillation cycle could be important drivers of multidecadal to interannual climate variability in this..
