Biomass and production of large African herbivores in relation to rainfall and primary production

Biomass and production of large African herbivores in relation to rainfall and primary production Standing crop biomass, energy expenditure and production by large mammalian herbivores in the African savannas show a high degree of correlation with mean annual precipitation and predicted above ground primary production. These relationships possess the potential for predicting carrying capacity and protein production from simple meteorological data. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Oecologia Springer Journals

Abstract

Standing crop biomass, energy expenditure and production by large mammalian herbivores in the African savannas show a high degree of correlation with mean annual precipitation and predicted above ground primary production. These relationships possess the potential for predicting carrying capacity and protein production from simple meteorological data.
