  1. Invasive and non-invasive group A β-haemolytic streptococcal infections in patients attending public sector facilities in South Africa: 2003–2015

    Invasive and non-invasive group A β-haemolytic streptococcal infections in patients attending public sector facilities in South Africa: 2003–2015

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Infectious Diseases
    Background: The burden of disease caused by group A streptococcus (GAS) in Africa is largely unknown. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence of invasive (iGAS) and non-invasive GAS (non-iGAS) infections in patients attending the public health...

    Separation of a coastal upwelling jet at Cape Blanco, Oregon, USA

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The coastal upwelling region near Cape Blanco (43°N), Oregon, off the west coast of the United States, was studied using a towed conductivity-temperature-depth instrument on SeaSoar, a shipborne Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler, satellite sea surface temperature maps and satellite-tracked surface...

    Exploring and Communicating Whiteliness

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    In this commentary, I suggest that Sam Vice’s exploratory and communicative goals in ‘How Do I Live in This Strange Place?’ are not appropriately advanced by the form of her writing. In particular, her analysis and recommendations—which I regard as...
  4. Gastropod diversity, distribution and abundance in habitats with and without anthropogenic disturbances in Lake Victoria, Kenya

    Gastropod diversity, distribution and abundance in habitats with and without anthropogenic disturbances in Lake Victoria, Kenya

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    We investigated freshwater gastropod diversity, abundance and distribution in habitats with and without anthropogenic disturbance in two localities, Ndere in the Winam Gulf and Mbita Point, Lake Victoria, Kenya, from May 2002 to January 2004. A total of 133 984...
  5. The Concept of Persuasion in Plato’s Early and Middle Dialogues

    Molecular diversity and phylogenetic relationships of the gastropod genus <em>Melanoides</em> in Lake Malawi

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The freshwater snails belonging to the genus Melanoides Olivier, 1804 are widespread across tropical regions of the world and endemic species have evolved in the African Lakes Malawi, Mweru and Tanganyika. The endemic Melanoides species of Lake Malawi have been...
  8. Sympatric <em>Biomphalaria</em> species (Gastropoda: Planorbidae) in Lake Albert, Uganda, show homoplasies in shell morphology

    Sympatric <em>Biomphalaria</em> species (Gastropoda: Planorbidae) in Lake Albert, Uganda, show homoplasies in shell morphology

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The three known sympatric Biomphalaria species that occur in Lake Albert; B. choanomphala, B. stanleyi and B. sudanica, were studied using both molecular (COI, 16S and ITS) and shell morphometric data. An unidentified sample of 18 Biomphalaria specimens from Lake...

    Seasonal habitat and diet partitioning between two sympatric bovid species in Pendjari Biosphere Reserve (northern Benin): waterbuck and western kob

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Niche theory suggests differential use of shared resources facilitates coexistence of species in a community. In this study we used the faecal stable isotope analysis with observations along transect lines perpendicular to the Pendjari River. This was to examine seasonal...

    Movement behaviour of largemouth bass <em>Micropterus salmoides</em> in a South African impoundment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The objectives of this study were to describe movements and area use patterns of largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides in relation to abiotic factors (water temperature, river inflow and water level). The study was conducted in the Kubusi arm of Wriggleswade...
