• Functional habitat heterogeneity and large herbivore seasonal habitat selection in Northern Botswana

      Fynn, Richard W.S.; Chase, Michael J.; Röder, Achim (2014)
      This study aimed to determine the functional seasonal attributes for herbivores of the major habitats and landscapes of the Savuti-Mababe-Linyanti ecosystem (SMLE) of northern Botswana and how various herbivore species responded to this heterogeneity. Floodplain grasslands and dambo grasslands provided the only significant green forage and biomass during the late dry season, whereas short grasslands of the Mababe Depression provided the highest forage quality of all habitats during the wet season....
