Southern African Landscapes and Environmental Change, Hardback Book

Description

This volume provides a textbook and reference work on the physical and biotic landscapes of Southern Africa.

It examines the links between these environments and the ways in which they have been, are and will likely be subject to change.

It covers the geomorphology, soils, vegetation and land use across a range of landscapes, including mountains, coasts, savannah, drylands and wetlands, and identifies the impacts of current and potential climate change and other factors on these environments.

The geographical focus is on the region defined by Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and Swaziland.

Illustrated throughout in full colour, the book will serve as a reference volume for researchers and environmental professionals internationally, as well as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate-level students of geography, ecology and environmental studies in Southern Africa.
