    Background: The spectrum of illness and long-term outcome of critically ill patients admitted to intensive care units (ICUs) in South Africa remains largely unknown.
  2. Adaptive management for complex communal rangelands in South Africa

    Adaptive management for complex communal rangelands in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Many of the intransigent problems facing the world arise in complex systems. In this paper, I propose that communal rangelands in South Africa be recognised as complex social–ecological systems and that one of the reasons that development initiatives have had...
  3. How could herd mobility be used to manage resources and livestock grazing in semi-arid rangeland commons?

    How could herd mobility be used to manage resources and livestock grazing in semi-arid rangeland commons?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Pastoralists in Namaqualand, South Africa, use herd mobility to manage livestock and rangeland resources. However, their socioeconomic conditions and ecological landscapes are changing and we explore the options that are available for pastoralists to respond to these changes. This paper...

  5. Somatic embryogenesis as a tool to capture genetic gain from tree breeding strategies: Risks and benefits

    Somatic embryogenesis as a tool to capture genetic gain from tree breeding strategies: Risks and benefits

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    For clonal testing and ultimate commercialization of selected clonal lines, breeding programmes are reliant on vegetative propagation techniques. Somatic embryogenesis is a propagation technique that has the potential to assist with the deployment of pine clones. By virtue of its...
  6. Flexibility in the timing of post-nuptial moult among Red-billed Queleas <em>Quelea quelea</em> in Botswana in relation to the timing of breeding

    Flexibility in the timing of post-nuptial moult among Red-billed Queleas <em>Quelea quelea</em> in Botswana in relation to the timing of breeding

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    The timing of primary moult of adult Red-billed Queleas Quelea quelea, captured as they were completing an unusually late breeding attempt at Francistown, northern Botswana, in June 2004, was compared with the timing of moult of birds breeding earlier in...
  7. Culture-independent detection and quantification of <em>Fusarium circinatum</em> in a pine-producing seedling nursery

    Culture-independent detection and quantification of <em>Fusarium circinatum</em> in a pine-producing seedling nursery

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    The primary symptoms associated with Fusarium circinatum infection in pine seedling nurseries are root and collar rot, shoot and tip die-back and seedling mortality. Management of this pathogen in nurseries usually involves the integration of various strategies relating to sanitation,...
