  • Lehmann, CER; Archibald, SA; Hoffmann, WA; Bond, WJ (Wiley-Blackwell Publishers, 2011-07)
    We aimed to identify the limits of savanna across Africa, Australia and South America. We based our investigation on the rich history of hypotheses previously examined; that the limits of savanna are variously determined ...
  • Le Roux, D; Stock, WD; Bond, WJ; Maphanga, D (Heron Publishing, 1996-05)
    Clonal variation in water use efficiency (WUE), dry mass accumulation and allocation, and stable carbon isotope ratio (delta (13)C) of crude leaf fibre extracts was determined in six clones of Eucalyptus grandis W. Hill ...
  • Hempson, GP; Archibald, S; Bond, WJ; Ellis, RP; Grant, CC; Kruger, LM; Kruger, FJ; Moxley, C; Owen-Smith, N; Peel, MJS; Smit, IPJ; Vickers, KJ (Wiley, 2014-09)
    Grazing lawns are a distinct grassland community type, characterised by short-stature and with their persistence and spread promoted by grazing. In Africa, they reveal a long co-evolutionary history of grasses and large ...
  • Buitenwerf, R; Bond, WJ; Stevens, N; Trollope, WSW (Wiley, 2012-02)
    For the past century, woody plants have increased in grasslands and savannas worldwide. Woody encroachment may significantly alter ecosystem functioning including fire regimes, herbivore carrying capacity, biodiversity and ...
  • Midgley, JJ; Bond, WJ (Bureau for Scientific Publishers, 1995-08)
    The responses of an indigenous acid an exotic (South American) ant was compared to seeds from exotic (Australian) and indigenous Caps myrmecochorous plants. Non-South African ants were more attracted to seeds of myrmecochorous ...

    Ecologists have long sought to understand the factors controlling the structure of savanna vegetation. Using data from 2154 sites in savannas across Africa, Australia, and South America, we found that increasing moisture ...
  • Olbrich, BW; Le Roux, D; Poulter, AG; Bond, WJ; Stock, WD (Elsevier Science BV, 1993-10-01)
    This study aimed to determine whether the delta-C-13 levels in the foliage and twigs of four Eucalyptus grandis clones were related to their water use efficiency (WUE). This relationship has previously been demonstrated ...
  • Ratnam, J; Bond, WJ; Fensham, RJ; Hoffmann, WA; Archibald, S; Lehmann, CER; Anderson, MT; Higgins, SI; Sankaran, M (Blackwell Publishing, 2011-09)
    Savannas are defined based on vegetation structure, the central concept being a discontinuous tree cover in a continuous grass understorey. However, at the high-rainfall end of the tropical savanna biome, where heavily ...
