Investigating elephant-induced piosphere effects in a Zambezian Baikiaea woodland with a high density of artificial waterholes (research data)
Data from a study exploring the impacts of elephant browsing on woody vegetation in Zambezi National Park, Zimbabwe, with a focus on browsing in relation to pumped waterholes. Vegetation was sampled in plots set at different distances from waterholes in two vegetation types (Teak/Baikiaea and Terminalia woodlands). The dataset contains plot level averages of elephant browsing (in terms of % plant biomass removal) and measures of vegetation structure (e.g. canopy volume/ha).
