  1. Evidence of a contact zone between two <em>Rhabdomys dilectus</em> (Rodentia: Muridae) mitotypes in Gauteng province, South Africa

    Evidence of a contact zone between two <em>Rhabdomys dilectus</em> (Rodentia: Muridae) mitotypes in Gauteng province, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Recent studies have described the presence of several mitochondrial lineages within Rhabdomys, which was previously considered to be a monotypic genus. The exact distributional limits of the species and subspecies and their contact zones are unclear. In this study we...
  2. Reproductive strategy of the Egyptian free-tailed bat, <em>Tadarida aegyptiaca</em>, from a subtropical latitude (25°S) in South Africa

    Reproductive strategy of the Egyptian free-tailed bat, <em>Tadarida aegyptiaca</em>, from a subtropical latitude (25°S) in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Free-tailed bats (Molossidae) are widely distributed in Africa and exhibit considerable reproductive flexibility. The Egyptian free-tailed bat, Tadarida aegyptiaca, is one of the most widespread of the molossids and is therefore an excellent model to study the variation in reproduction...
  3. Effect of management on rangeland phytomass, cover and condition in two biomes in South Africa

    Effect of management on rangeland phytomass, cover and condition in two biomes in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    In rangelands, grazing management is a main driver of rangeland condition. Due to masking effects of seasonal climate fluctuations, little is known about (dis)similarity of management effects on rangeland condition and forage provision across major dryland biomes. Taking a macro-ecological...
  4. Trauma exposure and life satisfaction among at-risk black South African adolescents

    Trauma exposure and life satisfaction among at-risk black South African adolescents

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    This study aimed to construct a model to explain trauma exposure and life satisfaction among black South African school learners. A random sample of 366 black adolescents selected from ten South African schools participated (females = 63.2%; rural = 24.2%;...
  5. Birds as major predators of fishes in the East Kleinemonde Estuary

    Birds as major predators of fishes in the East Kleinemonde Estuary

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    This study provides a quantitative account of fish predation by piscivorous birds in the temporarily open/closed East Kleinemonde Estuary and represents the first global attempt to simultaneously relate such consumption to production by a fish community in the same estuary...
