Drought induced xylem embolism in four riparian trees from the Western Cape Province: Insights and implications for planning and evaluation of restoration
In Mediterranean climates, rainfall is restricted to periods of low evaporative demand, leaving plants to survive the summer drought. The purpose of this study was to determine the contribution of drought tolerance to the ...
Can riparian seed banks initiate restoration after alien plant invasion? Evidence from the Western Cape, South Africa
Riparian zones are complex disturbance-mediated systems that are highly susceptible to invasion by alien plants. They are prioritized in most alien-plant management initiatives in South Africa. The current practice for the ...
The effectiveness of active restoration following alien clearance in fynbos riparian zones and resilience of treatments to fire
In 1998, a restoration field trial was initiated in a catchment near Wellington (Western Cape, South Africa) to determine whether fynbos riparian scrub vegetation cleared of woody invasive alien trees require post-clearance ...
Description of reference conditions for restoration projects of riparian vegetation from the species-rich fynbos biome
When considering revegetation strategies for particular restoration projects, data on community composition and structure should, whenever possible, be obtained from reference sites. Revegetation is an important restoration ...
