20. 2. 2017 - Field expedition to Zimbabwe and Botswana (2nd phase)

The expedition to Zimbabwe and Botswana was a follow-up to our expedition in 2014. We have extended previous study of changes of diversity and abundance of insects and plants along productivity gradients. Moreover, we have investigated spatial patterns among artefacts on archaeological sites and at living culture of local hunter-gatherers and horticulturalists. (Photographs by Petr Pokorný.)
