  1. Nest-site characteristics and aspects of the breeding biology of the endangered Timneh Parrot <em>Psittacus timneh</em> in Guinea-Bissau

    Nest-site characteristics and aspects of the breeding biology of the endangered Timneh Parrot <em>Psittacus timneh</em> in Guinea-Bissau

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Timneh Parrots Psittacus timneh are endemic to the moist forests of West Africa. Concerns over rapid declines in populations due to overharvesting for the pet trade and forest loss prompted the species’ categorisation as Endangered on the IUCN Red List...
  2. Structural traits of elephant grass (<em>Pennisetum purpureum</em> Schum.) genotypes under rotational stocking strategies

    Structural traits of elephant grass (<em>Pennisetum purpureum</em> Schum.) genotypes under rotational stocking strategies

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Despite the forage potential of elephant grass, controlling canopy structure during grazing has limited its use in pasture. This study was conducted to determine the effect of grazing frequency and post-grazing height on canopy structural characteristics of elephant grass genotypes...
  3. Decomposition of cattle dung on grazed signalgrass (<em>Brachiaria decumbens</em> Stapf) pastures in monoculture or intercropped with tree legumes

    Decomposition of cattle dung on grazed signalgrass (<em>Brachiaria decumbens</em> Stapf) pastures in monoculture or intercropped with tree legumes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Livestock excreta is one of the major nutrient sources in natural grasslands. Understanding how livestock diet and season affects the decomposition dynamics is critical to nutrient cycling models. We hypothesised that livestock diet and season of the year affect dung...
