  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. Extraction and electrophoretic separation of proteins from leaves of scions and rootstocks of <em>Vitis</em> cultivars

    Extraction and electrophoretic separation of proteins from leaves of scions and rootstocks of <em>Vitis</em> cultivars

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Proteins were extracted and separated by SDS-PAGE from leaves of scions and rootstocks of different Vitis cultivars. Banding patterns were used to identify the different cultivars after extraction of the proteins with a medium containing Tris-HCI (0.68 M, pH 7.8),...
  4. Rapid thrombophilia genetic test facilitates improved prenatal care for mother and child

    Rapid thrombophilia genetic test facilitates improved prenatal care for mother and child

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Family Practice
    Physiological changes in coagulation factors during pregnancy are important to minimise blood loss during gestation and delivery, but may also lead to a 4–6 fold increased risk of venous thromboembolism during pregnancy and after delivery. Approximately 25% of maternal mortality...
  5. A case of vulval schistosomiasis

    A case of vulval schistosomiasis

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Family Practice
    While schistosomiasis is endemic in South Africa, cutaneous manifestations are relatively uncommon. This case report describes the clinical findings in a patient with vulval schistosomiasis. Schistosomiasis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of genital lesions in residents in endemic...
  6. A snapshot of noncommunicable disease profiles and their prescription costs at ten primary healthcare facilities in the in the western half of the Cape Town Metropole

    A snapshot of noncommunicable disease profiles and their prescription costs at ten primary healthcare facilities in the in the western half of the Cape Town Metropole

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Family Practice
    Objectives: There has been a rapid increase in the prevalence of noncommunicable diseases globally. It is thought that this increase will have the greatest impact on developing countries, such as South Africa, where it will adversely affect quality of life...
  7. Quality of care and cost of prescriptions for diabetes and hypertension at primary healthcare facilities in the Cape Town Metropole

    Quality of care and cost of prescriptions for diabetes and hypertension at primary healthcare facilities in the Cape Town Metropole

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Family Practice
    Background: Quality of care for diabetes mellitus and hypertension has been found to be suboptimal at primary health care level. There is an expectation that improving quality will require the increased utilisation of resources. This research was intended to determine...

    Common mental disorders are not diagnosed commonly in community health centres

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Family Practice
    Background: Very limited published data exist on the spectrum of mental health disorders encountered at primary health care (PHC) facilities in South Africa.
  9. 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...
