Observations of the Year in southern Africa

Tony Rebelo's picture

Every month southern African iSpotters nominate observations for Observation of the month, which becomes observations of the year.

This project collects the creme-de-la-creme of our southern African observations and displays it for those interested.

if you wish to use the pictures, please go to the observation and place a request with the users (add a comment).

Should the Silky Oak be a NEMBA Category 3 species?

Tony Rebelo's picture

We are assessing the invasive potential of the Silky Oak in South Africa.
In South Africa, trees of this species are used mostly as windbreaks and for agroforestry in farms and along roads and as a shade tree. They are also commonly used in parking lots and house yards as ornamentals.

The aim of this Masters project is to assess the invasiveness of G. robusta in South Africa by determining its distribution and rate of naturalization.

Calli Morris's picture

My house mate bought me a couple of plants for Christmas. The guy at the nursery said they were all indoor plants that should not be in the sun.. I n the past few days they have started flopping over and looking like they are dying. Can someone assist me with what this plant needs.. ie sun or no sun / more water ir less water.. I am so sad that the little guys look like they are dying.
Thanks

European Micropezids & Tanypezids

Rainieria's picture

Extension of the UK Recording Scheme "Stilt & Stalk Flies" to capture European observations.
These are Diptera in the superfamilies Nerioidea (families Pseudopomyzidae and Micropezidae) and Diopsoidea (families Tanypezidae, Strongylophthalmyiidae, Megamerinidae and Psilidae)
For an idea of what they look like or for identification take a look at the following identification sites: Dipterists Forum (http://www.dipteristsforum.org.uk/forums.php) the European Diptera.info (http://www.diptera.info/news.php) and the Dipteres section of the French Le monde des insectes (https://insecte.org/).
