    Prevalence and awareness of diabetes in Guinea: findings from a WHO STEPS

    Aims: The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence of diabetes, and to assess its awareness and related risk factors among adult Guineans.
  2. Soil properties changes after short-term livestock exclusion in “degraded” communally managed rangelands in the western Bophirima District, South Africa

    Soil properties changes after short-term livestock exclusion in “degraded” communally managed rangelands in the western Bophirima District, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Livestock grazing and detrimental overgrazing are commonly associated with severe rangeland degradation particularly in communally managed pastoral systems in South Africa. Effects of grazing exclusion on vegetation are well documented, but there is a dearth of quantitative research conducted in...

    DISTRIBUTION OF NEST PREPARATION TASKS BETWEEN MATES OF THE REDBILLED HORNBILL <em>TOCKUS ERYTHRORHYNCHUS</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Diop, M.S. & Treca, B. 1996. Distribution of nest preparation tasks between mates of the Redbilled Hornbill Tockus erythrorhynchus. Ostrich 67: 55–59.
  4. A conceptual tool for improving rangeland management decision-making at grassroots level: the local-level monitoring approach

    A conceptual tool for improving rangeland management decision-making at grassroots level: the local-level monitoring approach

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    For many years, rangeland monitoring has mainly been the field of scientists, academics and extension workers trying to fine-tune methods to assess the condition of rangelands. Frameworks and monitoring systems developed with their associated indicators are often complex and inaccessible...
  5. Exploring differences of soil quality as related to management in semiarid rangelands in the western Bophirima District, North West province, South Africa

    Exploring differences of soil quality as related to management in semiarid rangelands in the western Bophirima District, North West province, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Differences in land-use management may result in different rangeland condition (soil, vegetation and biodiversity) and productivity. Vegetation condition in contrasting land-use management systems is well documented in semiarid rangelands, but relatively little information is available on soil quality. This study...
  6. The impact of capture, domestication and trade on Black Crowned Cranes in the Inner Niger Delta, Mali

    The impact of capture, domestication and trade on Black Crowned Cranes in the Inner Niger Delta, Mali

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    The inland delta of the Niger, a vast floodplain, is the only refuge of Black Crowned Cranes in Mali. This study, centred on the regions of Mopti, Tenenkou and Youwarou, aimed to: (1) census the number of cranes in the...
  7. The first recorded reproduction of the Greater Flamingo <em>Phoenicopterus roseus</em> in Algeria: behavioural and

    The first recorded reproduction of the Greater Flamingo <em>Phoenicopterus roseus</em> in Algeria: behavioural and

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Following several decades of unsuccessful attempts at locating breeding colonies of the Greater Flamingo Phoenicopterus roseus in Algeria, breeding was recorded on a natural islet of Garaet Ezzemoul, a seasonal salt lake near the town of Aïn M'lila in the...
  8. Aspects of the breeding ecology of the Purple Swamphen <em>Porphyrio porphyrio</em> in the wetland complex of Guerbes-Sanhadja, north-east Algeria

    Aspects of the breeding ecology of the Purple Swamphen <em>Porphyrio porphyrio</em> in the wetland complex of Guerbes-Sanhadja, north-east Algeria

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    The Purple Swamphen Porphyrio porphyrio is a common rail that previously was little investigated in North Africa. From 2011 to 2013, its breeding ecology was studied at two natural wetlands in north-east Algeria, namely Garaet Hadj Tahar and Garaet Messaoussa...
  9. Research and conservation of the larger parrots of Africa and Madagascar: a review of knowledge gaps and opportunities

    Research and conservation of the larger parrots of Africa and Madagascar: a review of knowledge gaps and opportunities

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Parrot populations in Africa and Madagascar are declining and the need for conservation actions to address threats is increasingly recognised. Effective conservation requires a robust knowledge base on which decisions over appropriate actions can be made, yet at present there...
  10. On the class of weak almost limited operators

    On the class of weak almost limited operators

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    We introduce and study the class of weak almost limited operators. We establish a characterization of pairs of Banach lattices E, F for which every positive weak almost limited operator T : E→F is almost limited (resp. almost Dunford- Pettis)...
