  1. <em>Pinus</em> saw timber tree optimisation in South Africa: a comparison of mechanised tree optimisation (harvester/processor) versus current manual methods

    <em>Pinus</em> saw timber tree optimisation in South Africa: a comparison of mechanised tree optimisation (harvester/processor) versus current manual methods

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Both Cut to Length (CTL) and Full Tree/Tree Length (FT/TL) ground-based systems are used to harvest pine in South Africa. The fully mechanised CTL system is the most recently introduced system in South Africa. One of the reasons for the...
  2. A comparison between excavator-based harvester productivity in coppiced and planted <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> compartments in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    A comparison between excavator-based harvester productivity in coppiced and planted <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> compartments in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Due to the labour challenges in South Africa, mechanised forestry equipment has increasingly been required to operate in complex forest conditions – such as coppiced Eucalyptus compartments – where they have not operated before. For this reason, harvesters are either...
  3. Harvesting and extraction impacts on <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> × <em>E. urophylla</em> coppicing potential and rotation-end volume in Zululand, South Africa

    Harvesting and extraction impacts on <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> × <em>E. urophylla</em> coppicing potential and rotation-end volume in Zululand, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    From the early 2000s there has been a general shift in South Africa in harvesting and extraction systems from the use of semi- to fully-mechanised systems. Any increase in mechanisation, as is occurring in Zululand, will need to take into...

    This article is an introduction to the X′-component of Government and Binding Theory, as applied to Zulu. In the first part of the article the general principles of X′-theory are outlined, and in the second part it is shown how...
  5. Problems in implementing improved range management on common lands in Africa: An Australian perspective

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Rangeland/livestock development in Africa is reviewed and lessons learnt from successes and failures are noted. Pastoral communities have developed risk aversion strategies to survive in the harsh environment and fragile ecology of rangeland areas. With advances in infrastructure (transport, water...
  6. Resource Ecology: Spatial and Temporal Dynamics of Foraging

    Resource Ecology: Spatial and Temporal Dynamics of Foraging

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science

  7. In Defence of the Zulu Adjective

    In Defence of the Zulu Adjective

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of African Languages
    It has been claimed that the traditional Zulu ‘adjectives’ and ‘relative stems’ would be more appropriately called ‘qualificative noun[s]’ (Posthumus, 2000). Yet the synchronic syntactic behaviour of ‘adjectives’ is identical to that bf ‘relative stems’, but different from that of...
  8. Zulu noun affixes: a generative account

    Zulu noun affixes: a generative account

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of African Languages
    Although Zulu morphology has been extensively described, there have been very few generative studies of it. The aim of this article is to provide a generative account of the productive Zulu noun affixes (that is, affixes which attach to nouns,...
  9. Language and commitment in Anglophone Cameroonian poetry: The poetic vision of three Anglophone Cameroonian poets

    Language and commitment in Anglophone Cameroonian poetry: The poetic vision of three Anglophone Cameroonian poets

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of African Languages
    This paper sets out to examine the relevance of language in both early and recent Anglophone Cameroonian poets. The argument of this article is built around the premise that Fonlon, Alembong and Besong are involved with what has become known...
