Description:

A collation and overview of research information on Boscia albitrunca (Shepherd's tree) and identification of relevant research gaps to inform protection of the species.

Summary / Notes:

There is a dearth of information regarding recruitment success and the influence of stocking rates on the species. High stocking rates of livestock and game are considered a primary cause for low densities of B. albitrunca trees in rangelands (Brundin and Karlsson 1999). In Etosha National Park (Namibia), more than 70% of trees were less than 1m tall, with plants less than 2m tall exhibiting high browsing pressure (Nott and Stander 1991).
