  1. Validation and downscaling of Advanced Scatterometer (ASCAT) soil moisture using ground measurements in the Western Cape, South Africa

    Validation and downscaling of Advanced Scatterometer (ASCAT) soil moisture using ground measurements in the Western Cape, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Satellite-based remote sensing of soil water content (SWC) is a promising technology for hydrological applications to overcome large spatiotemporal variabilities of SWC. This study investigated the performance of the Advanced Scatterometer (ASCAT) soil moisture product on METOP satellite (∼12.5 km...
  2. Mixed livestock grazing in diverse temperate and semi-arid environments

    Mixed livestock grazing in diverse temperate and semi-arid environments

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The need for an annual increase of 2% in global food production demands knowledge on how best to use natural grazing land resources. Taken with the requirement to protect resources, this need creates conflicting demands on grazing land management. Concerns...
  3. Moufang Unit Loops Torsion Over Their Centres

    Moufang Unit Loops Torsion Over Their Centres

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    Let L be an RA loop, that is, a loop whose loop ring in any characteristic is an alternative, but not associative, ring. We find necessary and sufficient conditions for the (Moufang) unit loop of RL to be torsion over...
  4. Water quality status and phytoplankton composition in Soetendalvlei, Voëlvlei and Waskraalsvlei, three shallow wetlands on the Agulhas Plain, South Africa

    Water quality status and phytoplankton composition in Soetendalvlei, Voëlvlei and Waskraalsvlei, three shallow wetlands on the Agulhas Plain, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Three wetlands on the Agulhas Plain, for which no limnological information was available, were investigated in order to provide baseline data on their present water quality and phytoplankton community structure. Physicochemical variables were assessed and phytoplankton biomass and community analyses...

  6. Age and sex dimorphism in the Canary Blue Tit <em>Cyanistes teneriffae teneriffae</em> on the island of Tenerife, Canary Islands

    Age and sex dimorphism in the Canary Blue Tit <em>Cyanistes teneriffae teneriffae</em> on the island of Tenerife, Canary Islands

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    The Canary Blue Tit Cyanistes teneriffae has recently been split off from the Common Blue Tit Cyanistes caeruleus as a separate species. Live biometrics from across the entire distribution on the island of Tenerife (subspecies teneriffae teneriffae) are reported. Results...
  7. Breeding status of the Ruddy Shelduck <em>Tadorna ferruginea</em> at Fuerteventura, Canary Islands: natural colonisation of two habitat types on an oceanic island

    Breeding status of the Ruddy Shelduck <em>Tadorna ferruginea</em> at Fuerteventura, Canary Islands: natural colonisation of two habitat types on an oceanic island

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    During the breeding season of 2008 a total of 24–30 female Ruddy Shelduck Tadorna ferruginea with brood were counted at two habitat types (reservoirs and natural gullies). The population was relatively stable from 1994–2002, with a likely increase afterwards. Generally,...
  8. Cysts of potentially harmful dinoflagellates, with emphasis on the genus <em>Alexandrium</em>, in Sepetiba Bay (Brazil) during a port survey of GloBallast

    Cysts of potentially harmful dinoflagellates, with emphasis on the genus <em>Alexandrium</em>, in Sepetiba Bay (Brazil) during a port survey of GloBallast

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Sepetiba Bay in south-eastern Brazil has been selected as a pilot demonstration site within the Global Ballast Water Management Programme (GloBallast; IMO/PNUD/GEF). As part of the port baseline survey, a series of 43 sediment cores was taken in triplicate in...
