Savanna Wildlife Research and Conservation Management

Qualifications

Enock Menge holds the BSc and MSc (Egerton University) and PhD from Charles Darwin University. For his PhD, Dr Menge examined the invasiveness of rubber bush (Calotropis procera) in the semi-arid environment of northern Australia. The research investigated the reproductive ecology, seed germination responses to temperature and water stress, dispersal ability and population growth, the role of disturbance in the spread of rubber bush, the potential distribution of the species in Australia and the overall weed risk, concluding with a synthesis and a series of recommendations for its management. The thesis comprises of various publications that may be found in the list of publications.
