Wetland mapping and classification


Two projects currently. The first is looking at soil hydrophobicity (soil water repellency) in fynbos ecosystem. I'm looking at the factors responsible, the temporal and spatial occurrence of it, the role of soil moisture, the role of fire and the role of soil hydrophobicity in fynbos ecology. The second project is looking at ground-truthing the National Freshwater Ecosystem Priority Areas (NFEPA) wetland maps on the Agulhas Plain in partnership with Jeanne Gouws from CapeNature
