Aquatic ecosystem responses to fire and flood size in the Okavango Delta: observations from the seasonal floodplains
(Springer, http://www.springer.com, 2010-07-19)
The frequency of fires in the Okavango Delta seasonal floodplains peaked at an intermediate frequency of flooding. Floodplains are commonly burnt every 3–5 years. This study showed fundamental changes in ecosystem properties ...
Simulation of DOM fluxes in a seasonal floodplain of the Okavango Delta, Botswana
(Elsevier, www.elsevier.com/locate/ecolmodel, 2007)
In order to examine dissolved organic matter (DOM) fluxes in seasonal wetland systems that expand and contract seasonally, a time-variable model of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) was developed for a seasonal floodplain ...
Flooding dynamics in a large low-gradient alluvial fan, the Okavango delta, Botswana, from analysis and interpretation of 30-year hydrometric record
(Hydrology and Earth Systems Sciences, www.hydrology-and-earth-system-sciences.net, 2006)
The Okavango Delta is a flood-pulsed wetland, which supports a large tourism industry and the subsistence of the local population through the provision of ecosystem services. In order to obtain insight into the influence ...
