VAN ROOYEN, Margaretha W.; VAN ROOYEN, Noel; BOTHMA, Jacobus du P.  y  VAN DEN BERG, Hendrik M.. Landscapes in the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, South Africa. Koedoe [online]. 2008, vol.50, n.1, pp. 99-112. ISSN 2071-0771.

A landscape map of the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park is presented. Mapping is at a finer scale than previous vegetation and habitat maps for the same area. The landscapes were grouped into seven large classes and a total of 20 landscapes were mapped. A description of the terrain morphology, soil and vegetation of each landscape is provided. Landscapes that are focal points for the large animals of the region include the calcrete outcrops, riverbeds and pans. These landscapes cover only about 10% of the total area of the region. This map can be used as basis for park planning, management, research and other applications.

Palabras clave : Arid savanna; dune vegetation; Kgalagadi; shrubby grassland; vegetation map.
