    In southern Africa, the connections between climate and the water–energy–food nexus are strong. Physical and socioeconomic exposure to climate is high in many areas and in crucial economic sectors. Spatial interdependence ...
  • Archibald, S; Nickless, A; Govender, N; Scholes, RJ; Lehsten, V (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010-11)
    This study investigates inter-annual variability in burnt area in southern Africa and the extent to which climate is responsible for this variation. We compare data from long-term field sites across the region with remotely ...
  • Scholes, RJ; Noble, IR (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2001-11-02)
    The terrestrial biosphere currently absorbs about a quarter of the anthropogenic carbon emissions. Can this carbon sink help to mitigate climate change? In their Perspective, the authors argue that the world will not be ...
  • Archer van Garderen, Emma RM; Tadross, MA (Taylor and Francis, 2009)
    Despite significant attention paid to desertification and climate change in the last few decades, interactions between the phenomena, as well as implications thereof, have received less of a focus. Such a trend is particularly ...
