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 ...
A river runs through it: Land-use and the composition of vegetation along a riparian corridor in the Cape Floristic Region, South Africa
Riparian zones are important for the many ecosystem services they supply. In settled areas, the vegetation of such zones is shaped by human land-use; this often creates conditions under which alien plant species thrive. ...
A reference framework for the restoration of riparian vegetation in the Western Cape, South Africa, degraded by invasive Australian Acacias
Riparian vegetation, which normally differs structurally and compositionally from surrounding vegetation, has been degraded in many parts of the fynbos biome by several species of invasive Australian Acacia. Systematic ...
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 ...
