African monitor lizards have a Pan-African distribution (Bayless, 2002). These lizards are known from generalized to specific habitats across Africa (Bayless, 1997). If studying zoology, herpetology, epidemiology, parasitology, or ethnography, it is helpful to know the local and regional names of these reptiles. To date, the most comprehensive listing of local names for Varanus has been written by Auerbach (1995:243-245). The following compilation includes the local names for each monitor lizard species listed by country, tribe, language, and source.

Body Scars and Dorsal Fin Disfigurements as Indicators of Interaction Between Small Cetaceans and Fisheries Around the Mozambique Channel Island of MayotteJeremy, K. et al.2008


N/A








Cetacean bycatch in fisheries occur in all oceans of the world and may have both lethal and non-lethal consequences (body injuries). In the lagoon of Mayotte (12o50’S, 45o10’E), in the northern Mozambique Channel, two main types of fisheries occur: handlining (inside the lagoon) and longlining (outside the barrier reef, over the ‘continental’ slope). The level of interactions between small cetaceans and fisheries in this area were characterised using identification photographs taken from July 2004 to April 2008 during dedicated cetacean surveys. Photographs were taken of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus), melon-headed whales (Peponocephala electra) and short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus).

CIFOR


In 2008, Mozambique prepared and submitted to the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) a Readiness Plan Idea Note (R-PIN). A National REDD+ Working Group was established in 2009. The working group’s initial work plan was revised in March 2010 to accommodate 1) the emerging priority of developing a national REDD+ strategy to inform the implementation of pilot projects whilst 2) allowing the preparation of the Readiness Preparation Proposal (R-PP). The two processes were subsequently merged.

Climate policy meets national development contexts: Insights from Kenya and MozambiqueNaess, L. et al.2015


N/A








Despite the growth in work linking climate change and national level development agendas, there has been limited attention to their political economy. These processes mediate the winners, losers and potential trade-offs between different goals, and the political and institutional factors which enable or inhibit integration across different policy areas. This paper applies a political economy analysis to case studies on low carbon energy in Kenya and carbon forestry in Mozambique.

A DINÂMICA DOS SISTEMAS LITORAIS DO SUL DE MOÇAMBIQUE DURANTE OS ÚLTIMOS 30 ANOSMoreira, M.2005


N/A






Finisterra


A erosão é o fenómeno que domina a dinâmica actual dos sistemas litorais de Moçambique, onde, em mais de 90% da extensão da costa, é devida a causas naturais. A passagem de depressões e ciclones tropicais, e a elevação recente do nível médio do oceano são as causas fundamentais. A transgressão oceânica manifesta-se no estreitamento das praias, no entalhe dos cordões dunares que migram para o interior, assoreando as lagunas anexas, na segmentação das restingas e ilhas-barreira, no recuo rápido das arribas vivas e na reactivação das mortas, no desmantelamento das microformas de bio-erosão das plataformas areníticas da entre-marés, no estreitamento dos mangais, na sinalizaçãodos aquíferos salobros das planícies litorais e das ilhas.

Highways cause significant impacts to birds in four ways: direct mortality, indirect mortality, habitat fragmentation and disturbance. In this paper I discuss highway-related impacts, and suggest solutions from a highway management perspective. Non-flying birds (either behaviorally or structurally) such as gallinaceous birds and ducklings; waterbirds such as terns; owls; ground-nesters; scavengers; Neotropical overwater migrants; frugivorous birds; and birds attracted to salt are often killed from highway-related causes. Suggested solutions include highway crossing structures, diversion poles on bridges or medians, modified right-of-way mowing regimes, road kill removal, appropriate median vegetation, among others.

Towards the Establishment of an Ecologically Representative Network of Marine Protected Areas in Kenya, Tanzania and MozambiqueWWF Eastern African Marine Ecoregion2004


N/A




The aims of this publication are: - Provide guidance on how scientifically-based representative networks of MPAs can be established and its benefits. - Generate a focus on the commitments made at the World Summit on Sustainable Development and the obligations required relating to MPAs. - Review the status of the network of MPAs in each of the three countries. - Assess the effectiveness of existing MPAs in protecting marine biodiversity and contributing to sustainable livelihoods. - Identify gaps in the network at the level of the EAME and the actions needed to complete it. - Identify areas where international support is most urgently required to help these countries meet their targets and obligations.




This publication concerns the marine protected areas (MPAs) of three countries of the Eastern African Marine Ecoregion (EAME): Kenya, Tanzania and Mozambique. In all three countries, a large proportion of the rapidly increasing coastal population depends on marine resources for their food and income, inshore fisheries are over-exploited and degradation of marine and coastal ecosystems is escalating. MPAs are increasingly recognised as a tool for addressing these problems.

BIODIVERSITAS


Groupers are widely distributed in the tropical and subtropical coastal waters, and are globally one of the most commercially important groups of marine fish, commanding high market price and are being heavily targeted in fisheries. Over fishing in Indonesia becomes a pivotal factor, which is seriously threatening the grouper biodiversity, as separate catch statistics are not reported for most species, and landings are often summarized as ‘serranids’ or ‘groupers’. This lack of species-specific catch data is due to the difficulty of identifying many of the species. The focus of this study was the tracking of molecular phylogeny of Epinephelus spp. of the family Serranidae.

N/A








The IUCN-SSC organised two regional workshops, one for West and Central Africa and one for Eastern and Southern Africa, with the intention to gather major stakeholders and to produce regional conservation strategies for the lion. It was recognized the importance of establishing a National Action Plan (NAP) for the Lion in Mozambique and realized the lack of comprehensive information for reviewing the lion profile in the country. A survey has been launched to update the conservation status of the lion in Mozambique. The final report of this survey is expected to become a comprehensive material for submission as a contribution to a forthcoming NAP workshop. The current report is the final product of the whole survey made of three phases.

A orla marítima da cidade da Beira (Moçambique), em particular dos Bairros urbanos da Ponta_Gêa e Chaimite, constitui uma faixa ambientalmente muito vulnerável a erosão costeira, compreendendo as unidades territoriais da Praia da Ponta_Gêa e Praia Nova, neste último caso abarcando parte do estuário do rio Pùngué. Devido à ocupação desordenada do espaço, nota-se hoje uma forte erosão em grande parte da orla marítima culminando com a destruição de inúmeras infra-estruturas sociais entre casas, vias de comunicação incluindo parte do revestimento vegetal local. O artigo tem como objectivo apresentar os principais impactos ambientais decorrentes da erosão costeira na orla marítima da cidade da Beira, nos Bairros de Chaimite e Ponta_Gêa.

BioInvasions Records


The discovery of a naturalised population of Melaleuca quinquenervia in South Africa in 2009 prompted an evaluation of the species’ distribution across South Africa. We found records at seven localities in two of the nine provinces of South Africa, with naturalised populations at two sites. An additional herbarium record from Mozambique suggests that this global invader is present at other sites within the sub-region, and so while the extirpation of populations in South Africa is recommended and looks feasible, further work is required to determine the status and evaluate whether eradication from the sub-region as a whole is possible.

Acta Theriologica


The examination of dental morphology of coexisting modern Aethomys namaquensis Smith , 1834 and A. chrysophilus de Winton, 1896 from Mozambique, whose diet has been studied in the field, shows that the development of stephanodont crests and the multiplication of supplementary cusps on labial side of the lower molars is associated with a mainly vegetarian diet. To the most specialized dentition corresponds the most specialized diet. The application of these results to two coexisting Aethomys species from the fossil site of Langebaanweg (Pliocene, South Africa) allows to conclude that their dental differences correspond to different paleodiets.
