Description:

This book paints a picture of many facets of the Bushveld, from its geology, soil patterns, climate, character, special plants and giant trees to the management of this much-loved part of southern Africa. If such a vibrant harmony is not expertly managed and utilised, precious little of its charm will remain to be enjoyed by people. Many questions about the dynamics of the bush are answered. The emphasis is on conservation for utilisation, as the Bushveld does not belong to only a select few. The bush has always been a shelter and home to a variety of peoples, from the hunter-gatherers of the Stone Age to modern people still enjoying and utilising the Bushveld today (even if sometimes only over weekends). It is also the site of the first gold melting-furnaces at the southern tip of Africa. Who does not know about Mapungubwe's famous gold foil rhinoceros? And for those without the luxury of shops and chemists, the Bushveld offers a treasure of nutritious and medicinal veld plants as a means of living and survival. Bushveld: Ecology and Management has been written by skilled and distinguished experts with decades of experience of the bush and knowledge of the veld, aiming to reveal this wonder to their readers.
