Veld is a natural resource vital to our survival on earth. About 80%; of our beautiful country consists of veld. Most of this area is used for livestock and game ranching as well as for biodiversity conservation and recreation. Good veld management is needed to prevent land degradation and to ensure sustainable food production and biodiversity conservation. But good veld management relies on a good knowledge of ecological principles and veld management practices, something many land users did not have the privilege to acquire. This book aims to provide the necessary knowledge to assist land users to effectively manage the land under their care, a huge responsibility indeed.

Veld Management - Principles and Practices, attempts to simplify a rather technical subject by including more than 380 photographs and illustrations and using easy understandable language. Contents:
Chapter 1 is an introduction to the subject and also includes important legislation.
Chapter 2 discusses the natural resources we are managing during veld and land management, such as soil, vegetation and water.
Chapter 3 deals with ecological principles and includes sections on basic ecological processes, the role of plants and animals, and land degradation.
Chapter 4 includes all the important practices such as property planning, grazing systems, fire management, the control of unwanted plants and many more.
Appendix A: Declared weeds and invader plants.
Appendix B: List of herbicides commonly used to control unwanted plants during veld and environmental management

EXTENT: 256 pages
FORMAT: 240 x 168 mm
Soft cover, integral binding, full colour throughout, 380 colour photographs and illustrations

For centuries, carnivorous plants have fascinated and mystified all who encounter them. From the well-known Dionaea to obscure African Drosera, from the dramatic Sarracenia of the coastal plains of the United States to the microscopic Utricularia of Florida, they are simply remarkable. Quite naturally it is also a special thrill to grow these wonders of nature. Yet even experienced enthusiasts too often find a lovingly tended homegrown plant fading away without capturing a single insect. Help is at hand in this comprehensive guide to identifying, understanding, and successfully cultivating more than 600 species, hybrids, and cultivars from all genera of carnivorous plants. Surprises abound to delight the reader, such as a common weedy mustard that has carnivorous seeds and aquatic spiders that dive into carnivorous plants to steal their captured prey. Trapping mechanisms inspire awe, whether the snap-shut action of Dionaea and Aldrovanda, the slobbery mucus glands of Drosophyllum, or the giant pitchers of Nepenthes that can trap and dissolve rodents.

With over 400 glorious photographs, many never seen before, a broad plant directory, insights from professional carnivorous plant growers and experts, and detailed coverage that is as enjoyable to read as it is practical to use, this is the irresistible resource that hobbyists, gardeners, and naturalists alike have long awaited.

Barry A. Rice is an expert carnivorous horticulturist who has been growing these bizarre plants since 1985 (not counting the Venus flytraps he killed as a child), and has produced many noteworthy carnivorous plant cultivars. He is editor of Carnivorous Plant Newsletter, the publication of the International Carnivorous Plant Society, and is also the society's Director of Conservation Programs.

In this book are fifty-two compelling tales that will lead the reader on a journey of discovery of the African continent. It tracks the ancient grail of traditional African medicine or muthi. The journey takes one year, with one story for each of the fifty-two weeks. Many of the stories inherited through Africa's compelling oral tradition are between these covers: committed to paper for the first time ever.

The ancient African people were the first aromatherapists who well understood the effect of plants on the human body, mind and soul. Innately spiritual, the thousands of lineages of African people across thousands of years have all used plant medicines for healing, always with the blessing of their ancestors.

Knowledge of African plant mythology and its associated healing practices is most certainly a grail because on this great continent we call Africa, knowledge has always been an oral tradition. Because it was never written down, thousands of years of healing wisdom and intelligence have been lost in the transference from one generation to the next.

This book endeavoures to bring to light the deep history of fifty-two of the thousands of indigenous medicinal plants of Africa, before it is too late. The focus is towards Southern Africa because this region is a hotspot of cultural and botanical diversity. Unlike the healing knowledge of other ancient cultures, such as India or China, little of Africa's healing history is recorded.

As you read the stories about fifty-two of the continent's prominent indigenous plant cures, the authors hope you, too, will experience some of the magnetism, mystery and wisdom of Africa. They hope it will help you understand a bit more about yourself and about our species: the human being.
