About this book

Karoo Veld promotes an ecosystem health approach to veld assessment, recognising that soil, plants, insects and wild animals, work with the land user to sustain the productivity and value of Karoo veld. Karoo Veld outlines veld management and assessment approaches for a wide geographical area of arid South Africa, from the vygie veld of Namaqualand, through the Great Karoo to the grassier eastern Karoo. It will assist the practical and ambitious land user to apply ecologically friendly veld management and to evaluate the effects of grazing and restoration on the veld. The book will interest prospective land users who need to estimate the potential and suitability of land for a new enterprise before making the investment, as well as anyone who is curious about the Karoo and its plants and animals.

The book is generously illustrated with colour photos, figures and maps. Separate sections deal with Karoo veld ecology, veld management and veld assessment and monitoring. Appendices provide useful information on palatability of common Karoo plants, invasive alien weeds, Large Stock Unit equivalents for small stock and game and a brief picture reference guide to the more common Karoo plants.
