    The Khwe of Namibia. Foragers between game, tourism, and politics
    Koot, Stasja ; Beek, Walter Van; Diemer, Jeroen - \ 2016
    Anthropos 111 (2016)2. - ISSN 0257-9774 - p. 497 - 511.
    Bushmen - Conservation - Dwelling - Namibia - Tourism

    The Namibian Khwe Bushmen live in the Bwabwata National Park, where they are highly affected by the park's history and conservation activities. Following Ingold's dwelling perspective, the world comes into being because a person is continuously interacting with his/her environment. This contrasted with building, in which (wo)man constructs the world cognitively before (s)he can live in it. We apply a third notion, lodging, to refer to a situation in which people live in an essentially foreign environment. In this, many changes in the environment of the Khwe are triggered beyond their control, instead of through their interaction with their environment.

    photosynthesis-nitrogen relations - life-span - functional-groups - use efficiency - high-rainfall - dry mass - area - tree - nutrient - leaves
    Bringing together leaf trait data spanning 2,548 species and 175 sites we describe, for the first time at global scale, a universal spectrum of leaf economics consisting of key chemical, structural and physiological properties. The spectrum runs from quick to slow return on investments of nutrients and dry mass in leaves, and operates largely independently of growth form, plant functional type or biome. Categories along the spectrum would, in general, describe leaf economic variation at the global scale better than plant functional types, because functional types overlap substantially in their leaf traits. Overall, modulation of leaf traits and trait relationships by climate is surprisingly modest, although some striking and significant patterns can be seen. Reliable quantification of the leaf economics spectrum and its interaction with climate will prove valuable for modelling nutrient fluxes and vegetation boundaries under changing land-use and climate.
    Management processes on two small-holder sprinkler layouts : A case study from Zimbabwe
    Diemer, G. - \ 2000
    Irrigation and Drainage Systems 14 (2000). - ISSN 0168-6291 - p. 183 - 197.
    Management patterns on two sprinkler schemes for small-holders are compared. The one overriding difference is in the layout – soils, crops, climate, altitude, plot size, source of water and hardware being similar or identical. Both schemes are used by small-holders to grow vegetables for cash. One layout allows for individual control over both crop choice and water application, and requires one group meeting each month, to set the fee for the payment of the electricity bill for the pump-set. The other layout, copied from Zimbabwe’s large farms, is shown to impose group decision making on the choice of crop and variety, the area to be planted and the planting date, forcing farmers to hold 17 meetings between July 31st and November 23rd. The case study shows the impact of the layout of the hardware on the management process.
