Hattie L. A. Bartlam-Brooks, Mpaphi C. Bonyongo and Stephen Harris How landscape scale changes affect ecological processes in conservation areas: external factors influence land use by zebra (Equus burchelli) in the Okavango Delta Ecology and Evolution 3
This study examines space use changes made by zebras in response to landscape variation. We found that zebra's use of space, including home range size, was significantly affected by the size, density, and connectivity of habitat patches as well as the availability of preferred habitats. These results show the sensitivity of some herbivore species to landscape characteristics and in this case illustrate the effect a changing flood regime will have on zebra within the Okavango Delta declines.
