Cycads of southern Africa

Imagen del Tony Rebelo

To collate data on Cycads from gardens and the wild in southern Africa.

With 38 species of Cycad in southern Africa in two genera (Encephalartos with 37 species and Strangeria) southern Africa is a world Cycad Hotspot.

Cycads date from the Permian (280 million years ago) when they were far more diverse before the evolution of flowering plants.

Karoo Biogaps: Help with Animal IDs

Imagen del Tony Rebelo

Currently the Karoo is poorly surveyed for biodiversity (indigenous animals and plants) and there are large gaps in our understanding of which species occur in which parts of the Karoo. There is a need for field surveys to be conducted to discover which plants and animals occur in which habitats. Information gathered from the fieldwork in the Karoo will allow us to gain a clear understanding of species distribution patterns and allow us to determine which species are common and widespread and which are rare and restricted only to certain areas of the Karoo.

Peaceful nature

Imagen del Shaun Swanepoel

Trees and special gardens have always been used to symbolize hope and peace around the world.

Peace: a state or period in which there is no war or a war has ended.
Treaty: a formally concluded and ratified agreement between states.

Alien plants and animals of Mtunzini

Imagen del Ricky Taylor

To show the alien species of the coastal area of southern Zululand from the Tugela River to Port Durnford. These include both plants and animals of terrestrial, wetland and estuarine habitats. Most of the species originate in other continents - but the list includes South African species that did not originally occur in this area. One such plant is the Raphia Palm which is indigenous to Kosi Bay, but not this area. This Raphia palm is showing the typical traits of an invasive species - spreading rapidly and displacing the natural plants of the swamp forests in which it grows.

Hectad Challenge 2017 SJ85

A BSBI e-newletter reported that 792 (vascular?) plant taxa were recorded in hectad TL45 (Cambridge) in 2016. My total, over several years, for hectad SJ85 is well in excess of that, so I have taken on the challenge of beating that total.

Plants of the Mtunzini coastal area (Tugela to Port Durnford)

An assessment of the status of alien ferns in South Africa

Imagen del Emily Jones

This study is my Masters project. The study should serve as a first screening of the status and invasive potential of alien ferns in South Africa. Globally ferns (Pteridophyta) are under-represented in the invasion biology literature, with studies focusing on specific species rather than Pteridophyta as a whole. Similarly no survey has been done in South Africa to determine the current status of alien ferns or their potential impact they may have on a system. I am aiming to create as large a data base as possible and appreciate any help in logging sightings of alien ferns across South Africa.

Kosyn

The purpose of this project is to help identify the species found along and in the vicinity of the track leading to the Kosyn, (also called De Groote Kosyn) a cleft (a narrow, deep, water-worn fissure through a more weathering resistant sandstone band) on the Palmietrivier. The area was burnt in mid-December 2016.
