  1. Characterisation of microsatellite markers in the Spotted Sand Lizard (<em>Pedioplanis lineoocellata</em>) shows low levels of inbreeding and moderate genetic diversity on a small spatial scale

    Characterisation of microsatellite markers in the Spotted Sand Lizard (<em>Pedioplanis lineoocellata</em>) shows low levels of inbreeding and moderate genetic diversity on a small spatial scale

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Herpetology
    Population genetic methods can be useful for understanding spatial genetic patterns, gene flow and diversity. While genetic markers such as gene sequences are useful for understanding broad scale phylogeographic patterns, microsatellite markers allow for inferences within species and on smaller...
  2. Analysis of genetic diversity in Rose’s mountain toadlet (<em>Capensibufo rosei</em>) using novel microsatellite markers

    Analysis of genetic diversity in Rose’s mountain toadlet (<em>Capensibufo rosei</em>) using novel microsatellite markers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Herpetology
    On the Cape Peninsula, Capensibufo rosei is known from only two isolated breeding populations within Table Mountain National Park. Because of its declining state, there is an urgent need to understand the genetic diversity, population structure and patterns of movement...
  3. Genetic diversity and differentiation of the Western Leopard Toad (<em>Sclerophrys pantherina</em>) based on mitochondrial and microsatellite markers

    Genetic diversity and differentiation of the Western Leopard Toad (<em>Sclerophrys pantherina</em>) based on mitochondrial and microsatellite markers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Herpetology
    Intraspecific genetic diversity provides the basis for evolutionary change and is therefore considered the most fundamental level of biodiversity. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and microsatellite loci are the markers most typically used in population-level studies; however, their patterns of genetic variation...

  6. <em>Themeda triandra</em>: a keystone grass species

    <em>Themeda triandra</em>: a keystone grass species

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Themeda triandra is a perennial tussock grass endemic to Africa, Australia and Asia. Within these regions it is found across a broad range of climates, geological substrates and ecosystems. Because it is widespread across these areas it has great economic...
  7. Savanna browse production. 1: Determinants and measurement

    Savanna browse production. 1: Determinants and measurement

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    With the rapid expansion of wildlife ranching and conservation in South African savannas and the resultant increase in multi-species grazing and browsing systems, information on browse production potential is essential for determination of carrying capacity. This study, conducted on three...
  8. Savanna browse production. 2: Prediction

    Savanna browse production. 2: Prediction

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Browsing herbivores are generally highly selective feeders, selecting for new shoots and young plant material. Determinations of browser carrying capacity are then greatly inflated when based on available browse biomass estimates. Our study was initiated with the aim of modelling...
  9. Weekly Variation in the Radial Growth of <em>Pinus elliottii</em> var. <em>elliottii</em> in the Eastern Transvaal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The weekly radial growth of Pinus elliottii var elliottii was recorded during a full year in young, middle-aged and mature stands at two forest reeserves at different altitudes in the Eastern Transvaal. The results of this investigation are discussed.
