dc.description.abstract This thesis deals with the development and application of a new tool to assess the conservation significance of wetland avifauna. Termed the Waterbird Conservation Value (WCV) score, this method sums the proportion of each species' count relative to the global 1% threshold level for each species; the value obtained measures the overall conservation importance of the wetland to waterbirds. en_ZA
