Nicola Stevens, Anthony M. Swemmer, Leanne Ezzy and Barend F.N. Erasmus Investigating potential determinants of the distribution limits of a savanna woody plant: Colophospermum mopane Journal of Vegetation Science 25
Colophosperum mopane is a key-stone savanna tree as it dominates 35% of Southern African savannas, often in mono-specific stands. We present a regional-scale, climate envelope niche model, and fine-scale field mapping of the current boundary to demonstrate that both non-climatic (dry season day length) and climatic (minimum temperatures) variables limit the regional and local distribution of C. mopane.
