SCIONA meeting arid zone ecologists

Dr Rolf Becker and Dr Vera De Cauwer represented the SCIONA team at the annual conference of the Arid Zone Ecological Forum from 7 to 11 November 2019 in Kimberley, South Africa. They presented a SWOT analysis of the Iona Skeleton Coast Transfrontier Park, a study on game distribution and corridors in the Park, and a poster on the new Euphorbia rimireptans. The conference focuses on arid zone ecology and management and this year, the increased poaching of succulents, insects and reptiles within the region was highlighted.
