Moving in the Anthropocene: Global reductions in terrestrial mammalian movements
TLDR
Using a unique GPS-tracking database of 803 individuals across 57 species, it is found that movements of mammals in areas with a comparatively high human footprint were on average one-half to one-third the extent of their movements in area with a low human footprint.
Ecology of desert-dwelling giraffe Giraffa camelopardalis angolensis in northwestern Namibia
The population size and range of giraffe Giraffa camelopardalis have been greatly reduced in Africa in the past century, resulting in geographical isolation of local populations and some herds
Home range and seasonal movements of Giraffa camelopardalis angolensis in the northern Namib Desert
Estimates of home range size of giraffe in the northern Namib Desert were on average larger than those in other populations. In particular, the largest individual home range of any giraffe bull (1950
Mitochondrial sequences reveal a clear separation between Angolan and South African giraffe along a cryptic rift valley
TLDR
Increased sampling in southern Africa suggests that the distribution ranges of the Angolan and South African giraffe need to be redefined, and a deep divergence between northern and southern giraffe populations in Africa is revealed.
Genetic structure of two populations of the Namibian giraffe, Giraffa camelopardalis angolensis.
TLDR
These giraffe populations of northern Namibia, the desert-dwelling giraffe and those protected in Etosha National Park are a distinct subspecies from that previously assumed; thus data on G. c.
Seasonal vegetation changes in the Hoanib River catchment, north-western Namibia: a study of a non-equilibrium system
TLDR
While the bulk rangeland appeared not to be disturbed by landuse, a 2 km ‘sacrifice zone’ around water sources was found to have changes in vegetation species and abundance.
