Savanna Wildlife Research and Conservation Management

Qualifications

Enock Menge graduated with BSc and MSc from Egerton University. With this background, the ecology of rangelands is a source of great interest particularly as it provides the opportunity to learn how range productivity is affected by invasive species. For his PhD, Dr Menge examined the invasiveness of rubber bush (Calotropis procera) in semi-arid environments of northern Australia. The work investigated the reproductive ecology, seed germination responses to temperature and water stress, dispersal and population growth, the role of disturbance in the spread of rubber bush, the potential distribution of the weedy species in Australia and the weed risk. The thesis comprises of various publications that may be found in the list of publications.
