Project Summary:
To provide a quantitative, scientific basis for the incorporation of eco-hydrology of fynbos habitats potentially threatened by water abstraction in the Cape Floristic Region. Success will be measured and verified by the inclusion of eco-hydrological data in im pact assessments and conservation management plans.
Project Outputs:
* Database of eco-hydrological requirements of endemic species. * Enhanced models of the distribution of species in the Proteaceae and Restionaceae. * trained staff * improved decision-making tools
