  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. In Defence of an Autocentric Account of Ubuntu

    In Defence of an Autocentric Account of Ubuntu

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    This response to Thaddeus Metz’s “Toward an African Moral Theory” engages with his discussion of an autocentric, or “self-development” account of ubuntu as a morally normative theory. It is argued that an autocentric ubuntu, sharing certain strategies available to eudaimonist...

    The Virtue of Gossip

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    The moral status of gossip is generally defmed negatively from a Western perspective and, I argue, is or should be accorded a more positive role in African accounts of ethics. In a broadly communitarian vein, I argue that a characteristically...

    Prey, but not plant, chemical discrimination by the lizard <em>Gerrhosaurus nigrolineatus</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    We experimentally studied responses to food chemicals by Gerrhosaurus nigrolineatus, a member of a lizard genus endemic to subsaharan Africa. Gerrhosaur diets vary from insectivorous to omnivorous with a very large plant portion. The omnivorous G. validus responds strongly to...
  5. The Analytic appeal of African philosophy

    The Analytic appeal of African philosophy

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Philosophy
    Contemporary African philosophy ranges over a number of debates, positions, and theoretical traditions. It can, however, be read as its own critical tradition of hard-won methodological refinements and substantive philosophical debates common to a body of philosophical work concerned with...
  6. An infinite family of cubics with emergent reducibility at depth 1

    An infinite family of cubics with emergent reducibility at depth 1

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    A polynomial f (x) has emergent reducibility at depth n if f◦k (x) is irreducible for 0 ≤ k ≤ n − 1 but f◦n(x) is reducible. In this paper we prove that there are infinitely many irreducible cubics f...
