Dr Caroline Lehmann, from the University of Edinburgh, UK came with her field assistant, Johannesburg-based visual artist Hannelie Coetzee to sample some of the grasslands here. Caroline had just arrived in
South Africa from Madagascar, where she had been carrying out surveys of grass species in areas where the genus Loudetia is prevalent and wished to do the same at Buffelskloof.
Dr Michelle Greve brought 8 students from the University of Pretoria for a week to carry out various research activities related to their studies.
Many of the students had not visited Buffelskloof before and were most enthusiastic about the Reserve and its facilities. Sam Jamison and Doreen Raseala continued with their research into Bushclump dynamics and alien plants around abandoned homesteads, respectively.
