Biodiversity risk assessment of South Africa’s municipalities
Thesis (MSc (Botany and Zoology))--University of Stellenbosch, 2005.
South Africa is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world and even with conservation initiatives in place continues to face biodiversity loss. There is a need to prioritise areas for conservation as resources for conservation purposes are limited in South Africa. From prioritisation methods reviewed it was found that prioritisation indices normally use one or a combination of variables that measure stock; and/or variables that measure threat.
