Land-use diversity within an agricultural landscape promotes termite nutrient cycling services in a southern African savanna

Abstract:

Soil macrofauna provide key supporting ecosystem services by transporting nutrients against physical and chemical gradients. In the semi-arid savannas of southern Africa, termites are the dominant macrofauna whose foraging activities increase nutrient availability, soil aeration and water infiltration. With increasing land-use conversion, savanna landscapes are becoming surrounded by a matrix of agricultural landscapes. We tested how compositional and configurational landscape heterogeneity i...
