Know: ‘The Most Hated Tree’ in the World

Prosopis juliflora

There is no harmful living being in this earth and nature created everything with specific roles to play, in order to balance the ecosystem. But sometimes a few living beings can be regarded as harmful to some other species.

Would you hate a tree which can grow in any extremely arid environment,¬†saline soil¬†and stay ever green? Most importantly it can grow fast on its own! Are we supposed to hate such a tree? If I say ‘Yes’ you would feel that I am insane. But there are people who hate such special trees!¬†

You must have seen this Tree in your villages, even urban bushes or alongside roads.Prosopis juliflora”¬†also called as¬†¬†algarrobe,cambr√≥n,¬†cashaw,¬†√©pinard,¬†mesquite,¬†mostrenco, or¬†mathenge¬†is probably the most hated tree in the world now. Many countries declared this a weed and prohibited them planting this. Destruction campaigns are actively happening in many parts of the world to weed out these trees.

Why people hate this tree?

Prosopis juliflora¬†Commonly called as “Mesquite”¬†is a shrub or small tree. It is native to¬†Mexico,¬†South America¬†and the¬†Caribbean. It has become established as an¬†invasive weed¬†in¬†Africa,¬†Asia,¬†Australia¬†and elsewhere.

It has become an invasive weed in several countries where it was introduced. It is considered a noxious invader in Ethiopia, in Hawaii, in Sri Lanka, Jamaica, the Middle East, India, Nigeria, Sudan, Somalia, Senegal and southern Africa. It is also a major weed in the southwestern United States. It is hard and expensive to remove as the plant can regenerate from the roots. Its aggressive growth leads to a monoculture, denying native plants water and sunlight, and not providing food for native animals and cattle.

Prosopis juliflora2

DEVIL TREE : Grazing areas are scarce and vegetation sparse. In recent years this precious grazing land has been invaded by an aggressive, thorny plant called Prosopis (Prosopis juliflora), known to locals as the devil tree. РFarm Africa

A mature tree can produce hundreds of thousands of seeds. Seeds remain viable for up to 10 years. The tree reproduces by way of seeds, not vegetatively. Seeds are spread by cattle and other animals that consume the seed pods and spread the seeds in their droppings.

Prosopis juliflora Seeds

Its roots are able to grow to a great depth in search of water: in 1960, they were discovered at a depth of 53 meters (175 feet) at an open-pit mine near Tucson, Arizona, putting them among the deepest known roots.

In Australia, mesquite has colonized more than 800,000 hectares of arable land, having severe economic and environmental impacts. With its thorns and many low branches it forms impenetrable thickets which prevent cattle from accessing watering holes, etc. It also takes over pastoral grasslands and uses scarce water. Livestock which consume excessive amounts of seed pods are poisoned. It causes land erosion due to the loss of the grasslands that are habitats for native plants and animals. 

In Sri Lanka this mesquite was planted in the 1950s near Hambantota as a shade and erosion control tree. It then invaded the grass lands in and around Hambantota.

In the Arabian Peninsula where P. juliflorais invasive has strong negative impacts on native species despite increases in the concentrations of some nutrients in sub-canopy soil.[Source]

The Survivor:

Scientists say P. juliflora has survived where other tree species have failed.

The concern in the 1970s and 1980s about deforestation, desertification and fuel wood shortage prompted a wave of projects, leading to the introduction of the species on a large-scale manner in the State and elsewhere.

They say the invasion by this species is going in several areas. The growth and spread of Prosopis is tremendous mainly due to its inbuilt mechanism to overcome adverse conditions. The ‚Äėproline‚Äô content in Prosopis is high under stress conditions, which helped the plant to thrive under extreme drought. – Courtesy :¬†The Hindu

Prosopis was introduced in India during the 1870s to meet the fuel wood demand and in Tamil Nadu the 1960

It is called¬†bayahonda blanca¬†in¬†Spanish,¬†bayarone Fran√ßais¬†in¬†French,¬†in¬†Hindi¬†it is called¬†angaraji babul,¬†Kabuli kikar,¬†vilayati babul,¬†vilayati khejra¬†or¬†vilayati kikar.¬†In¬†Gujarati¬†it is called¬†gando baval,¬†in Marwari,¬†baavlia,¬†in¬†Kannada¬†it is known as “Ballaari Jaali” and¬†in¬†Tamil language¬†it is known as¬†cheemai karuvel¬†(ŗģöŗĮÄŗģģŗĮąŗģēŗĮćŗģēŗģįŗĮĀŗģĶŗĮáŗģ≤ŗĮą)

Every species has it’s role to play as we mentioned earlier. This Tree has nothing to consider it as evil or to hate it. The only this is that it has spread in wrong habitats. Just like letting Lions to live free in cities. Regardless of whatever the negatives that the people see in this tree, I consider this as a Solid Fighter and a Rock Tree to survive even in Deserts. Let these trees find its actual home, where no other trees or plants can grow. The nature will do the rest of its magic which many of us are reluctant to accept. Hope people see this from the nature’s perspective.

Earth Our Home Too : Meerkats

Meerkats3

Meerkat Classification and Evolution
The Meerkat (also known as the Suricate) is a small species of foraging mammal that is found inhabiting the harsh conditions of the open and arid, semi-desert plains in southern Africa. A member of the Mongoose family, Meerkats differ from the other 35 Mongoose species in a number of ways with the biggest difference being that Meerkats are incredibly sociable animals, where most Mongooses are not (only 3 other species are known to live in groups larger than pairs). There are three different sub-species of Meerkat that are found in varying geographic locations and although they are very similar in appearance, they differ slightly in their fur colouration and markings. All however, live in highly organised communities known as gangs or bands, that rely on one another for their survival in such hostile conditions as whilst the majority of the group is out foraging for food, others stand on guard to keep a watchful eye out for approaching predators.

Meerkat2

Meerkat Anatomy and Appearance
The Meerkat is a small sized¬†mammal¬†that has a long and slender body with a long and light but black-tipped tail that can almost double the¬†animal’s¬†total length. Meerkats are sandy to light brown in colour with eight darker stripes on their back, markings on their sides (which are unique to the individual) and a lighter face and underside. They have elongated muzzles with a black nose and dark coloured bands around their eyes. Meerkats have long, sharp claws on their front paws that are curved and can grow up to 2cm long and help them to both dig their burrows and to find small¬†animals¬†that are buried beneath the soft sand. The fur of the Meerkat has actually adapted remarkably to the differing¬†desert¬†conditions, not only helping to keep the¬†animal¬†cool during the boiling hot days, but also acting as a layer of insulation to keep it warm during the freezing-cold winter nights.

Meerkats (5)

Meerkat Distribution and Habitat
The Meerkat is found in southern and western Africa inhabiting the dry and hostile scrub-lands of the Kalahari Desert. Spanning across five different countries in southern Africa from Angola to South Africa, Meerkats are found throughout this vast, arid region foraging for food on the ground during the day and retiring into their immense burrows in the sand at night. Conditions in the Kalahari Desert are incredibly extreme with temperatures reaching up to 40 degrees Centigrade in the summer (with a sand temperature of 70 degrees), and falling to well below zero down to -10 degrees during the bitter, winter nights. This area of Africa has an incredibly low level of annual rainfall with only a rare, small amount falling generally between January and April and after which, the Kalahari briefly transforms into a well-vegetated and life-filled region before the cooler winter months set in.

Meerkats (6)

Meerkat Behaviour and Lifestyle
Unlike all but three other Mongoose species, the Meerkat is a highly sociable animal that inhabits territories in the desert in groups that usually contain between 10 and 30 individuals (although much larger bands are not uncommon in areas where there is an ample supply of food), and consist of three or four family units of a male and female pair, with their young. After emerging from their burrow to sunbathe in the early morning sun, the majority of the band goes off to forage for food while others either babysit the young, or act as guards. By standing upright on their hind legs and tails on the top of mounds and in bushes, Meerkat guards are able to have a good vantage point to watch out for approaching predators, particularly from the sky. One of a series of different alarm calls will then be sounded to alert the rest of the group what the danger is, often causing the whole band to dive into their underground burrow to hide.

Meerkat Reproduction and Life Cycles
Although there may be a number of breeding pairs in one band, Meerkat society is generally dominated by one male and female pair. Young Meerkats are usually born in November after a gestation period that lasts for around 11 weeks. Having mated with her partner at the start of the summer, the female Meerkat gives birth to between 2 and 5 small kits in a grass-lined chamber in the burrow, that are born blind and without their full coat of fur. Unlike with the rearing of numerous other small mammal species, both females and males tend to their young with males and siblings known to help to teach the young Meerkats the skills of surviving in the surrounding desert. Whilst the majority of the band is out foraging for food, the young Meerkats never stray far from the den and whilst playing in the hot sand, are kept a watchful eye on by an appointed babysitter. Meerkats can live for up to 10 years in the wild but have been known to live for longer in captivity.

Meerkats (1)

Meerkat Diet and Prey
The Meerkat is a carnivorous¬†animal¬†which means that despite it’s small size, it only forages for and eats small¬†animals¬†in order to gain all of the nutrition (and most of the moisture) that is needs to survive. Like other¬†Mongoose¬†species, Meerkats have an excellent sense of smell which is used to sniff out potentialprey¬†that is lurking just under the surface of the sand. Once detected, Meerkats then used their long and sharp front claws to dig out their¬†prey, with the majority of their¬†diet¬†being made up of¬†insects¬†and other small¬†invertebrates, along with also eating larger¬†animals¬†such as¬†Lizards¬†and Rodents. Due to the fact that Meerkats are small in size and have adapted to living in such a harsh environment, they must spend a great deal of their waking hours foraging for food as they are known to loose around 5% of their body-weight during the night and must therefore ensure that they have enough to eat every day.

meerkat and snake

Meerkat Predators and Threats
Due to the small size of the Meerkat, they are natural prey to numerous animal species that are both on the ground and in the air. The biggest threat to Meerkats are Birds of Prey such as Hawks and Eagles that can spot these animals from high above their heads, along with ground-dwelling predators such as Snakes that hunt them on the ground. In order to try and protect themselves from being so vulnerable in their open and arid surroundings, Meerkats adopt the safety in numbers tactic and ensure that there is always an individual on guard to warn the rest of the group of any approaching danger. In places that are closer to growing Human settlements and near to areas where domestic animals are grazed, Meerkats have been known to contract both bovine diseases and rabies that can affect whole populations of these adaptable and otherwise resilient animals.

Meerkat4

Meerkat Interesting Facts and Features
If the individual Meerkat on guard spots approaching danger they will sound the alarm to the rest of the group. Meerkats are known to use a wide range of vocal calls to communicate between one another sounding long howls to warn the rest of the band of an approaching bird of prey, and using short double-barks to alert them of a predator nearing the group on the ground. The individual territory of a Meerkat group covers a large enough area to ensure that the band has everything they need to most successfully survive. This includes areas of both hard and soft sand as although the hard sand provides the perfect ground for building their tunnels in, it requires more energy for Meerkats to forage for food in it too. Digging in the softer sand requires less effort and therefore means that they can conserve more energy for other activities.

Meerkat Relationship with Humans
The Meerkat is one of those species that has always fascinated people with their characteristic¬†behaviours¬†having made them one of¬†Africa’s¬†most iconic small¬†mammal¬†species. The real delights into Meerkat life were displayed in the BBC series¬†Meerkat Manor¬†which involved the following and filming of one band of Meerkats in the Kalahari¬†Desert. Although they are not threatened by¬†Human¬†activity as drastically as a number of¬†Africa’s¬†other unique species, Meerkats have been susceptible to contracting diseases from other¬†animals¬†which can have devastating implications on local populations.

Meerkat Conservation Status and Life Today
Today, the Meerkat is an¬†animal¬†that listed by the IUCN as being of Least Concern from being extinct in it’s natural environment in the near future. Although they are widespread and common throughout much of their natural range, populations in certain areas can be affected by the lack of rainfall or increasing numbers of their natural¬†predators. Populations across southern¬†Africa¬†however, appear to be generally stable with large numbers of Meerkats also found in a few of the big national parks.
