Abstract

Recent work has indicated that the southern African ice rat is responsible for negative habitat change due to its foraging and burrowing activities in the Lesotho Highlands. Previous work has focussed on short-term studies. This study evaluates a ten-year monitoring period across a portion of wetlandfringe/wetland in eastern Lesotho. It is suggested that the environmental impact of ice rats may be less dramatic on the longer term scale due to shifts in of colonies and regeneration of abandoned, formerly degraded burrow sites. - (AJC)
