The country is located in the southern part of Africa and it borders South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and na was formally a British Protectorate of Bechuanaland but assumed the name “Botswana” after independence in In view of the rapidly changing ecology of Africa,this work provides benchmarks for some of the major, and more neglected, aspects, with an accent on historical data to enable habitats to be seen in relation to their previous state, forming a background reference work to understanding how the ecology of Africa has been shaped by its past.

In this article, we question the role of second additional language (that is, an optional, non-official language) teaching, with special reference to French at school level in South Africa. Over and above the fact that some additional languages reflect minority cultures and communities (Greek, Serbian, Hebrew, etc.), we consider their real and potential place in the promotion of multilingualism.

Aspects of the biology and ecology of the two species are described, including their distribution, life history strategy, reproduction, growth and feeding. The history of the fishery is discussed with special reference to management interventions. The geographical distribution of Kalanchoe species in southern Africa is discussed.

Reference is made to typical kalanchoe habitats, where the species are found, and the ecology of the species is discussed, based on firsthand observations during fieldwork. Species endemic to specific biogeographical regions are noted and discussed.

The literature published during –72 concerned with the ecology and control of Glossina is reviewed and put into context with previously published information.

Thirty species or subspecies of Glossina are recognised. Improved methods of sampling have been developed which catch many more females of the morsitans group than other methods and allow more accurate estimates of population.

African Journal of Ecology (formerly East African Wildlife Journal) publishes original scientific research into the ecology and conservation of the animals and plants of Africa. It has a wide circulation both within and outside Africa and is the foremost research journal on the ecology of the continent.

In addition to original articles, the Journal publishes comprehensive reviews on topical. About this book.

In June Botswana’s Okavango Delta was enlisted as the th UNESCO World Heritage Site – a status that underscores the Delta’s global ecological significance and highlights the need to protect and manage this important biosphere.

September also marked the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Permanent Cubango-Okavango River Basin Commission (OKACOM) agreement that commits.

The fauna again shows the effect of the characteristics of the vegetation. The open savannas are the home of large ungulates, especially antelopes, the giraffe (peculiar to Africa), zebra, buffalo, wild donkey and four species of rhinoceros; and of carnivores, such as the lion, leopard, hyena, okapi (a genus restricted to Africa) is found only in the dense forests of the Congo basin.

The journal is published Open Access twice a year, typically in January and July. The study of Africa's traditional religion and the environment can be termed the ecology of religion.

The complexity of the relationship between environment and religion in indigenous and contemporary African cultures and societies requires a more multidisciplinary approach that draws from a variety of sources, approaches, and epistemological positions: phenomenology, ecology.
