Understanding the factors underlying species coexistence is a major focus in community ecology. When dealing with competition between native and exotic species, the competitive exclusion of the ‘weaker’ species can have consequences for biodiversity conservation. We examined interspecific...
We investigated the livestock farms surrounding the Waterberg Plateau Park in north‐central Namibia to assess farmer attitudes, management techniques, financial impacts, as well as the potential benefits of tourism and trophy hunting, with respect to leopard Panthera pardus conservation. Farmers...
In South Africa, more than 30 small, enclosed game reserves have reintroduced lions over the last two decades, which now house more than 500 individuals. There is a high risk of inbreeding in these fragmented, fenced and isolated populations, which may be compounded by a lack of management...
Even apparently subtle disturbance to habitat may have severe long‐term consequences if that disturbance alters specific microhabitat features upon which animals depend. For example, in south‐eastern Australia, the endangered broad‐headed snake Hoplocephalus bungaroides and its prey (velvet...
Positive interactions between species can have important conservation implications, especially when the species associating are both vulnerable. We studied the habitat use of pin‐tailed sandgrouses Pterocles alchata and their association with another vulnerable species, the little bustard Tetrax...
Although recent biodiversity loss has been compared with cataclysmic mass extinctions, we still possess few indicators that can assess the extent or location of biodiversity loss on a global scale. The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) has mandated development of indicators that can meet...
