Scholes, Barend Erasmus and Anthony Letsoalo Introduction Global climate change is predicted to have substantial impacts on southern Africa’s biodiversity, including wide-scale extinctions over the next 50 years (Rutherford et al, 1999; Hannah et al, 2002a and b; Gitay et al, 2001 and 2002; Midgley et al, 2002a and b; MA, 2005).
O. Hughes, personal communication, 2005). The combined impacts of climatic change and CO2 effects have been modelled for the lowveld savanna regions of South Africa (R. J. 3 The model predicts that the structural and functional habitat suitability for browsers and grazers will likely remain relatively constant in the 50-year timeframe, provided that fire and elephant management are appropriate. Overall, the carrying capacity for large herbivores is projected to decrease by about 10 per cent. Although this study does not consider individual species, it suggests that the functional integrity of the savanna habitat can be maintained near to current conditions through appropriate management.
