Context-dependent vegetation dynamics in an African savanna

The spatial extent of termite influences on herbivore browsing in an African savanna

Termite mounds form islands of fertility in savanna landscapes and create foraging hotspots for herbivores, but the magnitude and spatial extent of these influences is unknown. We mapped terrain, termite mound and woody vegetation three-dimensional …

Patch and species specific responses of savanna woody vegetation to browser exclusion

The impact of browsers on the structure of woody vegetation has been well documented in savanna landscapes but the spatial distribution of these impacts is poorly understood. Savannas are structurally heterogeneous and the effects of browsers are …
