  1. Correcting measures of national income for environmental values: The case of water abstraction and carbon sink externalities of industrial plantations in South Africa

    Correcting measures of national income for environmental values: The case of water abstraction and carbon sink externalities of industrial plantations in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Conventional measures of national income and capital formation underestimate the contribution of industrial plantations to gross domestic product and do not account for the social costs or benefits of their environmental impacts. The present study adopted an environmental accounting approach...
  2. Measuring total economic benefits from water in plantation forestry: Application of quasi I-0 framework to the Crocodile catchment in South Africa

    Measuring total economic benefits from water in plantation forestry: Application of quasi I-0 framework to the Crocodile catchment in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    A quasi input-output framework was applied to measuring direct and indirect economic benefits from water use in plantation forestry in the Crocodile river catchment of South Africa. The study accounted for indirect economic benefits generated in downstream timber processing activities...
  3. Serum resistin levels in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and their relationship to severity of liver disease

    Serum resistin levels in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and their relationship to severity of liver disease

    Background: Resistin is a hormone that is linked to the development of insulin resistance (IR), but information on the direct relationship of resistin levels in humans with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and their effect on the histological severity of...
  4. Assessment of existing practices in the operating theatre in the Khartoum North Teaching Hospital, Sudan

    Assessment of existing practices in the operating theatre in the Khartoum North Teaching Hospital, Sudan

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Epidemiology and Infection
    This study, assessing existing practices in the operating theatre regarding hand washing, disinfection and sterilisation, was conducted at Khartoum North Teaching Hospital. As far as we know, this is the frst study of its kind since the inauguration of the...
  5. Current status of urinary schistosomiasis in communities around the Erinle and Eko-Ende Dams and the implications for schistosomiasis control in Nigeria

    Current status of urinary schistosomiasis in communities around the Erinle and Eko-Ende Dams and the implications for schistosomiasis control in Nigeria

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Infectious Diseases
    Schistosomiasis is an endemic disease in many parts of the world and the disease is associated with water resource development projects, such as dams, irrigation schemes, and rice and fish farming. The present study was designed to determine the prevalence...
  6. Experimental study of an optimised solar still type with two condensing compartments suitable for alcoholic distillation

    Experimental study of an optimised solar still type with two condensing compartments suitable for alcoholic distillation

    An optimised solar still prototype suitable for alcoholic distillation was designed and tested. Its design is different from the single slope conventional solar still. It consists of two compartments which are in communication by a slit. One of the two...
  7. Spatial metrics effect of forest fragmentation on forest bird abundance and site occupancy probability: the influence of patch size and isolation

    Spatial metrics effect of forest fragmentation on forest bird abundance and site occupancy probability: the influence of patch size and isolation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    The persistence of species taxa within fragmented habitats is dependent on the source–sink metapopulation processes, and forest patch size and isolation are key factors. Unveiling species–patch area and/or species–patch isolation relationships may help provide crucial information for species and landscape...
