A contribution to the knowledge of the prominent moths (Lepidoptera, Noctuoidea, Notodontidae) of the Maputo Special Reserve with descriptions of four new speciesGYULA M. LÁSZLÓ, ALEXANDER SCHINTLMEISTER, ALVARO A. VETINA2021


2


This paper provides the first comprehensive summary of the Notodontidae fauna of the Maputo Special Reserve in southern Mozambique listing 51 species. Four species are described as new to science (Thacona smithi László & Schintlmeister sp.n., Arciera meridiana László & Schintlmeister sp. n., Leptolepida krugeri László & Schintlmeister sp. n., Thaumetopoea latinivea László & Schintlmeister sp. n.) and 23 species are recorded as new country records. Several taxonomic changes are made: the genus Arciera Kiriakoff, 1962 is reinstated and a lectotype is designated for Turnaca grisea Holland, 1893; Thacona pinheyi is transferred to the genus Subscrancia Gaede, 1928 (Subscrancia pinheyi (Kiriakoff, 1965) comb. nov.); and Hoplitis gigas Distant...

Evaluating the spatial intensity and demographic impacts of wire-snare bush-meat poaching on large carnivoresA.J. Loveridgea,⁎ , L.L. Sousaa , J. Seymour-Smitha , J. Hunta , P. Coalsa , H. O'Donnella , P.A. Lindseyb , R. Mandisodza-Chikeremac , D.W. Macdonald2020




The bush-meat poaching crisis is a significant threat to biodiversity in tropical forest and savannah biomes, however its impacts on wild animal populations are often difficult to quantify across large spatial scales. Using data from 17 camera trap survey sites in southern Africa, within the Kavango-Zambezi (KAZA) Transfrontier Conservation Area, we show it is possible to assess the demographic impact of wire-snare bush-meat poaching on large carnivore populations, distribution of snaring hotspots and drivers of bush-meat poaching prevalence across this landscape. Results suggest that mortalities in snares may have significant demographic effects on lions (Panthera leo) and spotted hyaenas (Crocuta crocuta) with evidence for population...

Distribution and Abundance of Lions in Northwest Tete Province, MozambiqueAndrew P. Jacobson, Megan E. Cattau, Jason S. Riggio, Lisanne S. Petracca, and Derek A. Fedak2013




The continued existence of large carnivores such as the lion (Panthera leo Linnaeus, 1758) outside of protected areas is uncertain. Such populations are the least studied and the most rapidly declining. Mozambique contains roughly 8% of Africa’s lions, nearly half of which persist outside of protected areas. We estimated the distribution and abundance of lions in an unprotected section of northwest Tete Province and identified potential threats to the local persistence of lion populations. Structured interviews of local people indicated lion presence and human-lion conflict. We used interview results and anthropogenic land uses defined via Google Earth to delineate lion range digitally. We estimated population size using two methods ...

Communities, conservation and livelihoodsCharles, Anthony2021




In most places around the world, people are an integral, sometimes dominant, part of the environment. This has two implications. First, a key requirement for sustainability success lies in finding ways to meet the dual goals of conserving nature and providing for the well-being and quality of life of people. Second, while conservation and stewardship certainly require considering the problems created by human impacts, they can also draw on the considerable potential of humans to solve a range of environmental challenges. Global sustainability requires corresponding responses at a global level.

Sexual and seasonal variation in the diet and foraging behaviour of a sexually dimorphic carnivore, the honey badger (Mellivora capensis)C. M. Begg1,2∗, K. S. Begg2, J. T. Du Toit1 and M. G. L. Mills2002




The honey badger, or ratel, Mellivora capensis has not been well studied despite its extensive distribution. As part of the first detailed study, visual observations of nine habituated free-living individuals (five females, four males) were used to investigate seasonal, annual and sexual differences in diet and foraging behaviour. Theory predicts that generalist predators ‘switch’ between alternative prey species depending on which prey species are currently most abundant, and diet breadth expands in response to decreased availability of preferred food types. There were significant seasonal differences in the consumption of eight prey categories related to changes in prey availability but no seasonal differences in food intake per kg of bod

Aim: Concurrently, assessing the effectiveness of marine protected areas and evaluating the degree of risk from humans to key species provide valuable information that can be integrated into conservation management planning. Tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier) are a wide-ranging ecologically important species subject to various threats. The aim of this study was to identify “hotspots” of tiger shark habitat use in relation to protected areas and potential risks from fishing. Location: Southwest Indian Ocean, east coast of South Africa and Mozambique. Methods: Satellite tags were fitted to 26 tiger sharks. A subset of 19 sharks with an average period at liberty of 197 (SD = 110) days were analysed using hotspot analysis to identify areas of ...

We fitted 67 sharks with acoustic tags in the PPMR to investigate their habitat use, site fidelity and migration patterns. Tagged shark species included bull sharks (n = 34), tiger sharks (n = 18), grey reef sharks (n = 8), blacktip sharks (n = 6) and scalloped hammerhead sharks (n = 3). In addition, we deployed satellite tags on tiger sharks (n = 18) and bull sharks (n = 25) to investigate their habitat use outside of the acoustic receiver array. Many of these sharks showed high fidelity seasonal habitat use in the PPMR with the majority of sharks present in the PPMR during the summer months. Between periods of residency in the PPMR tagged sharks undertook largescale migrations as far as Madagascar, northern Mozambique and the western ...

RESULTS OF A BENTHIC SURVEY OF BAIXO SÃO JOÃO, PONTA DO OURO PARTIAL MARINE RESERVE, SOUTHERN MOZAMBIQUEM.H. Schleyer2015




Baixo São João is a rocky massif in the northern section of the Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve, southern Mozambique. A benthic survey was conducted on the reef in July 2015 to investigate the merits of protecting it within a sanctuary. This involved point intercept analysis of photo-quadrat transects recorded in the northern, central and southern parts of the reef on the reef top and its inshore and offshore slopes. The coral community on the reef proved to be relatively rich and uniform within all reef zones, but with no unique or over-vulnerable species. Hard corals were predominant with a mean cover of 32.3%; the mean cover of soft corals was 12.8%. Little coral damage was evident and, despite not having any special attributes ...

Wild Miombo woodlands mushrooms are a largely ignored nutrition-boosting food and source of income among rural communities of Southern Africa. A survey was conducted in the Gweru, Kwekwe, Shurugwi and Mvuma districts of Zimbabwe to establish the importance of this natural resource in household poverty reduction.Gathered quantities and sales realized were recorded through structured personal interviews targeting two thirds of gatherers with equal numbers of male and female respondents and one key informant in each site. Results showed that of 14 gathered mushroom species (orders Cantharellales, Amanitales and Termitomycetes) across all sites, five species were of varying commercial value. Amanita loosii was the most traded and the only on...

How effective are the protected areas of East Africa?Jason Riggio, Andrew P. Jacobson, Robert J. Hijmans, Tim Caro2019




Protected areas are the cornerstone of in situ conservation and their effective management is critical for maintaining biodiversity in the long term. In East Africa (Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda) there are 1,776 protected areas (including 186 “strict” protected areas with IUCN management categories I through IV) covering more than 27% of its terrestrial area. Here we document the extent to which East African protected areas encompass ecoregions and endemic terrestrial vertebrate taxa, and using new land conversion data derived from medium to high spatial resolution satellite images, we assess how they have been encroached upon by agriculture and other land use. We find that East African protected areas cover 86% of...
