Description:

A Review of Fauna and Flora Associated with Coastal and Inland Saline Flats from Namibia with Special Reference to the Etosha Pan.

Summary / Notes:

Coastal saline flats are often frequented by a plethora of migratory birds, mainly waders, and mammals such as the elusive Brown Hyaena (Hyaena brunnea) and Black-backed Jackal (Canis mesomelas). Inland saline flats, particularly Etosha Pan, which is fringed by broad- and fine-leafed arid savanna woodlands, teem with a variety of game. Greater Flamingo (Phoenicopterusrnruber) and Lesser Flamingo (Phoeniconaias minor) also occasionally breed on the Etosha Pan depending on local rainfall. Only vegetation adapted to halophytic conditions occur in association with saline systems in Namibia.
