Résumé partiel
This study investigated the nature and effects of a number of human ’disturbances’ on the spatial distribution and dynamics of sand forest in and around Tembe Elephant Park (TEP), Maputaland, South Africa. The first disturbance investigated was that of fire and its role in determining the spatial patterning of sand forest at the landscape level. Secondly human disturbance was investigated in the form of utilisation of forest products and the effects of this on the dynamics of sand forest as a whole as well as on individual species.
