Description:

Conservation of Quiver Trees in Namibia and South Africa under a Changing Climate.

Summary / Notes:

Aloe dichotoma (Quiver tree) occurs in the arid regions of Namaqualand and Bushman land in South Africa, and in arid regions of southern Namibia. The Quiver trees are not only threatened by agricultural expansion, overgrazing, and mining; but also by climate changes and droughts. Previous studies show that Quiver trees are very sensitive to environmental changes, and do not respond well to extreme hot and dry conditions. This study investigates the current status of the Quiver tree within its existing environment, and also assesses the projected future changes of the Quiver tree habitat under different climatic scenarios. It provided evidence regarding the importance of the study to understanding the climate change impacts on the Quiver tree and its geographical response to climate changes. Keywords: Climate Change, Conservation, Quiver Tree, Aloe Dichotoma, Karoo, Species Distribution, Arid Region, Namibia, South Africa.
