oa Madoqua - Ecological studies of the Cunene River mouth: avifauna, herpetofauna, water quality, flow rates, geomorphology and implications of the Epupa Dam



The Cunene Namibia's third largest and most poorly studied river. Ecological studies of its environment took on renewed urgency in 1991 with news of the imminent muIti-damming of the Cunene's lower reaches for hydro-electric power. This paper reports on long-term flow rates and two ecological surveys of the river mouth during below-average, peak and low-flow conditions present in 1991.
