i) produce immediate knowledge of impact of climate change on spp with a case study on African savannahs, ecosystems of cultural & environmental interest at the global scale; ii) pave the way for greater awareness of the impact of changes in drinking water availability for wildlife & biodiversity, while offering conceptual & methodological advances in the scientific study of these effects in other systems

Focussing on zebra & greater kudu  to study the behavioural adjustment of wildlife to the lack of water through the use of GPS tracking, movement modelling & newly developed analyses of recursion patterns; isotopic analyses will reveal changes in the source of water consumed.
