  1. Wildlife roadkill patterns on a major highway in northern Tanzania

    Wildlife roadkill patterns on a major highway in northern Tanzania

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Despite expanding road networks, there is limited understanding of the effects of roads on wildlife in East Africa. We present a baseline survey and describe the patterns of roadkill in the Tarangire–Manyara ecosystem of Tanzania. A 75 km stretch of...
  2. The Use of Roots to Test N, P and K Deficiencies in <em>Eucalyptus</em> Nutrition

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Bioassays have been developed which can provide diagnostics of the nutritional status of trees. They measure the flux of N, P or Rb for K into roots from standard solutions where the rate of influx is inversely related to nutrient...
  3. A study of seed production in <em>eragrostis curvula</em> (schrad.) nees

    A study of seed production in <em>eragrostis curvula</em> (schrad.) nees

    Results are reported of a series of experiments designed to study the management of E. curvula for seed production in the Natal Region. The following are the main points which arose from this investigation: (a) approximately 90% of the seedheads...
  4. Postflexion and transforming larvae of <em>Gonorynchus gonorynchus</em> (Linnaeus, 1766)

    Postflexion and transforming larvae of <em>Gonorynchus gonorynchus</em> (Linnaeus, 1766)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Postflexion larvae of Gonorynchus gonorynchus, previously undocumented, are described from the South-East Atlantic. Comparisons with descriptions of larval G. abbreviatus and larvae of another, still unidentified, species of Gonorynchus suggest slight to conspicuous differences in pigmentation between species.
  5. Development of a doubled haploid mapping population and linkage map for the bread wheat cross Kariega × Avocet S

    Development of a doubled haploid mapping population and linkage map for the bread wheat cross Kariega × Avocet S

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A doubled haploid wheat population of 150 lines was constructed from the F1 of a cross between cultivars Kariega and Avocet S using the wheat-maize technique. Segregation and linkage analysis of 203 DNA markers, two storage protein markers and the...
