Abstract

Habitat preferences of 12 potential bush encroacher species in the Arid Lowveld veld type, E Transvaal, were investigated. Grouping of species with similar profiles lead to the identification of the following five indicator groups: Terminalia sericea, Combretum zeyheri, C. apiculatum and Acacia exuvialis with preference to sandy, acid, leached, non-sodic soils with low conductivity. Pterocarpus rotundifolius with preference to clayey, acid, medium leached, non-sodic soils with low conductivity. Acacia gerrardii, A. nigrescens and Albizia harveyi with preference to clayey, alkaline, non-leached, sodic soils with high conductivity. Dichrostachys cinerea, Dalbergia melanoxylon and Ormocarpum trichocarpum with preference to very clayey, alkaline, moderately leached, slightly sodic soils with medium conductivity. Maytenus senegalensis with preference to sandy, neutral (pH), moderately leached soils with medium conductivity. -from Author
