I find this image sad and beautiful, as it symbolises the impact of centuries of
hunting and farming on the biodiversity of the Karoo. From the remains of
armadillos, elephants, zebras, crocodiles and pythons that are on display, it's
clear that the owner is extremely proud of his “trophies”.' – Richard Dobson The
periodic migrations of millions of springbok, wildebeest and eland across the
Karoo in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries are the stuff of legend, with one
eyewitness ...

Under laboratory conditions, the range of temperatures over which a species can
germinate may appear too wide to ensure germination at a suitable time of the
year, but, under field conditions, additional stress tends to narrow the range
considerably. Temperature is probably the main factor distinguishing the
germination response of annuals of the summer-rainfall karoo (Nama-karoo) and
the winter-rainfall karoo (succulent karoo). The temperature response is

I suppose it's natural that a huge area like the Karoo, situated right in the middle
of the country, should have its share of famous sons and daughters. And in little
Karoo dorps they don't let you forget it. The Reverend Andrew Murray, who
probably did more to spread Christianity in southern Africa than anybody else, left
his mark in many a town across the country, starting in Cape Town, where his
pale marble statue stands in front of the Groote Kerk, wagging an admonishing
finger (now ...

Madam didn't seem to notice if it took a while to post letters, so I could return via
the Karoo Gardens on Market Square where there were wooden benches that I
was allowed to sit on. I could stare up at the palm trees over my head, or at the
flaming aloes in their square flower beds, and repeat the words I'd read while the
