Site Description
The LTSER Zone Atelier Hwange (ZAHWG) belongs to LTER-France network and is located in western Zimbabwe, in Sub-Saharan Africa, and is centered around Hwange National Park. The ecosystem is dominated by dystrophic savannas (mostly wooded savannas and dry woodlands) with discrete water sources. Surrounding land-uses include forestry areas, subsistence agro-pastoral farming, private ranches and hunting concessions, and mining. The ZAHG conducts an interdisciplinary research on the dynamics and resilience of this socio-ecological system organised, around a large protected area with re-known large mammal diversity and facing major social and climatic challenges for sustainable conservation
