Virtual Library

The BIOFUND Virtual Library is an online archive of information on Mozambique’s biodiversity, organized along the lines suggested by the Convention on Biodiversity’s Clearing House Mechanism. The Virtual Library will strive to make available all the documents, studies, reports, articles, educational and communications materials, maps and digital files that have been produced, to serve as a repository of our collective institutional memory as a conservation community. The usefulness of the Virtual Library will improve the more we share amongst ourselves. If you have any materials that are not currently part of the Virtual Library, please click on "Add Document" and become a contributor.

Role of local communities in the social network of the protected area managementJoana Pereira, Maria Joao Santos, Luis Miguel Rosalino2022


2019


Biodiversity conservation traditionally necessitates setting aside land, which frequently impacts local communities. Although progress has been made on how to optimize this process, conflict frequently emerges when conservation and community goals are at odds. Improving communication and community inclusiveness in decision-making processes is strongly recommended to achieve livelihood goals and conservation outcomes. We used social network analysis to understand how local communities are embedded within the structure and dynamics of stakeholder interactions in Quirimbas National Park (Mozambique). We detected a network of limited cooperation that lacks bidirectional communication, displaying low average knowledge transfer but high bonding...

A Preliminary Botanical Survey to Support Biodiversity Conservation in the Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary, MozambiqueAlice Massingue, Castigo Datizua, Clayton Langa, Camilo Bruno & Alice Massingue, Iain Darbyshire2021




Botanical surveys on the São Sebastião Peninsula have been limited to date. Over the past six years, extensive surveys have been conducted in the coastal zone of southern Mozambique by Alice Massingue as part of her Ph.D. studies, which revealed that this northern part of Inhambane is particularly rich in plant diversity and endemism. However, due to time and logistic constraints, the São Sebastião Peninsula was not included in Dr. Massingue’s surveys. This fieldwork was carried out with the purpose of providing a preliminarily survey of the occurrence of endemic and near-endemic; species of high conservation concern, or of socio-economic importance; threatened habitats and critical sites for these species and exotic and invasive plants.

Frequency of Fires in the Miombo Woodland of the Gilé National Park. Province of ZambeziaFrequency of Fires in the Miombo Woodland of the Gilé National Park. Province of ZambeziaPungulanhe, Luis A.; Ribeiro, Natasha S.; Veterno, Tomazia M. C.2021


2014-2018


Fires occur in a widespread manner in various types of vegetation cover at national level, and are often associated with human hunting, grazing and above all the practice of itinerant agriculture. With the purpose to propose the map of frequency of fire, remote sensing data was collected from 2014 to 2018, using the Moderate Resolution Image Spectroradiometer (MODIS) of the burned area (MCD64A1), which allowed the construction of the map of frequency and intensity of fires, associated with data collected in 59 plots on field. It was observed that the Gilé National Park (PNAG) records an average fire frequency of 0.38 times/year and the return interval of 5.38 years, and an average fire return interval of 2.62 years.

SOME BIRDS SEEN ON BAZARUTO ISLANDM. L. van Eyssen1958


1950


In June, 1950, three weeks were spent on Bazaruto Island situated in the Mozambique Channel at latitude 22' south, and longitude 35° east. As the crow flies, Bazaruto is about 15 miles from Vilanculos on the Portuguese East African coast, and is approximately 30 miles long with a maximum width of 8 miles. icularly attractive to waders. A large tidal rise and fall provides miles of mud flats on which all kinds of waders feed in hundreds. The list submitted is incomplete, as the time spent on the island (22 days) allowed little time for detailed study. The nomenclature follows Roberts (Birds of South Africa, 1946)

Rapid Visual Assessment of Fish Communities on Selected Reefs in the Bazaruto ArchipelagoJade Q. Maggs , Camilla Floros , Marcos A.M. Pereira and Michael H. Schleyer2010


2007


Rapid visual censuses were conducted of fish on eight coral reefs in the Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique, in 2007. SCUBA and snorkelling were used for the censuses in depths between 1-20 m, yielding an inventory of 249 fish species belonging to 50 families. This is intended to serve as a baseline for more detailed studies and monitoring programmes in the future. Although fewer species were recorded relative to other studies conducted in the Western Indian Ocean, the trophic structure on Bazaruto’s reefs proved typical for the region, indicating a relative measure of reef health. However, other regional studies were not directly comparable, differing in habitat, duration of sampling effort and methodology. This highlighted the need for a l

Two heterobranch species, Stylocheilus striatus (Quoy & Gaimard, 1825) (Anaspidea, Aplysiidae) and leurobranchus forskalii Rüppel & Leuckart, 1828 (Nudipleura, Pleurobranchidae) are reported for the first time for Bazaruto Island, Mozambique. Swarming behavior of Stylocheilus striatus, which was previously described for other localities, was also observed for the first time in the Bazaruto Archipelago. The sea slugs were photographed in situ and identified in sync with their species descriptions, photographic databases and the current literature.

2003


Humpback whales within the southwestern Indian Ocean undertake annual migrations from summer antarctic/Southern Ocean feeding grounds to winter breeding grounds in the tropical and sub-tropical coastal waters of Mozambique, Madagascar and the central Mozambique Channel Islands. Little is known of the inter-relationship of humpback whales on each of these wintering grounds, or the inter-relationship of these wintering grounds with the summer Antarctic feeding grounds. A line-transect survey of cetacean species was carried out in Mozambique coastal waters between Cabo Inhaca (26°00’S, 33°05’E) and just north of Mozambique Island (14°26’S, 40°53’E) and between the 20 and 200m isobaths, over the period 26 August to 7 September 2003.

Illegal Wildlife Trade and Financial Investigations in West AfricaAlexandria Reid and Mark Williams2021




IN THE LAST five years, West Africa has emerged as a major source and transit hub in the global illegal wildlife trade (IWT).1 The industrial scale of the multi-tonne, multi-product seizures originating from West Africa clearly demonstrates that profit-driven organised crime groups are running the trade. Yet, while the significance of the region in global IWT flows is increasingly recognised, very little is known about the financial aspects of these criminal operations.

Most authors recognize six baboon species: hamadryas (Papio hamadryas), Guinea (Papio papio), olive (Papio anubis), yellow (Papio cynocephalus), chacma (Papio ursinus), and Kinda (Papio kindae). However, there is still debate regarding the taxonomic status, phylogenetic relationships, and the amount of gene flow occurring between species. Here, we present ongoing research on baboon morphological diversity in Gorongosa National Park (GNP), located in central Mozambique, south of the Zambezi River, at the southern end of the East African Rift System. The park exhibits outstanding ecological diversity and hosts more than 200 baboon troops. Gorongosa National Park baboons have previously been classified as chacma baboons (P. ursinus). In ...
