    The frequency of fires in the Okavango Delta seasonal floodplains peaked at an intermediate frequency of flooding. Floodplains are commonly burnt every 3–5 years. This study showed fundamental changes in ecosystem properties ...
  • Mladenov, N.; McKnight, D.M.; Wolski, P.; Ramberg, L. (The Society of Wetland Scientists, 2005)
    In the Okavango Delta in Botswana, dissolved organic matter (DOM) transport is controlled by the slow movement of an annual flood ‘pulse’ across permanently and seasonally flooded wetlands, known respectively as the ...
  • Wolski, P.; Murry-Hudson, M.; Fernkvist, P.; Liden, A.; Huntsman-Mapila, P.; Ramberg, L. (Botswana Society, 2005)
    Groundwater under islands in the Okavango Delta is a known sink of inorganic dissolved minerals, preventing salinisation of this virtually enclosed evaporation-dominated hydrological system. The Okavango Delta is an ...

    In the Okavango Delta (about 28,000 km2) the number of identified species is 1,300 for plants, 71 for fish, 33 for amphibians, 64 for reptiles, 444 for birds, and 122 for mammals. The local occurrence of different species ...
  • Mitsch, W.J.; Nahlik, A.; Wolski, P.; Bernal, B.; Zhang, L.; Ramberg, L. (Springer, http://www.springer.com, 2010)
    This paper summarizes the importance of climate on tropical wetlands. Regional hydrology and carbon dynamics in many of these wetlands could shift with dramatic changes in these major carbon storages if the inter-tropical ...
  • Ramberg, L.; Wolski, P.; Krah, M. (Springer link, http://link.springer.com, 2006)
    Water balance in a seasonal floodplain in the Okavango Delta, Botswana was determined for three years (1997–1999). There was no surface outflow, and infiltration to ground water was very large (4.7–9.7 m during 90–175 days ...
