  1. Trophic relationships of hake (<em>Merluccius capensis</em> and <em>M. paradoxus</em>) and sharks (<em>Centrophorus squamosus</em>, <em>Deania calcea</em> and <em>D. profundorum</em>) in the Northern (Namibia) Benguela Current region

    Trophic relationships of hake (<em>Merluccius capensis</em> and <em>M. paradoxus</em>) and sharks (<em>Centrophorus squamosus</em>, <em>Deania calcea</em> and <em>D. profundorum</em>) in the Northern (Namibia) Benguela Current region

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The trophic relationships of two hake species (Merluccius capensis and M. paradoxus) and three shark species (Centrophorus squamosus, Deania calcea and D. profundorum) were investigated using nitrogen and carbon stable isotope signatures (δ15N and δ13C) of their muscle tissues. The...
  2. Seasonal population dynamics and energy consumption by waterbirds in a small temperate estuary

    Seasonal population dynamics and energy consumption by waterbirds in a small temperate estuary

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Simple measures of population dynamics and energy consumption can provide baseline information on the role of consumers in food webs, particularly for cryptic or highly-mobile species of waterbirds. We provide estimates of the seasonal population dynamics and energy consumption of...
  3. Macroinvertebrate functional organisation along the longitudinal gradient of an austral temperate river

    Macroinvertebrate functional organisation along the longitudinal gradient of an austral temperate river

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The Kowie River, a relatively pristine system in South Africa, was sampled on four occasions over one year to determine if relative abundances of functional feeding groups (FFGs) of invertebrates changed along the longitudinal gradient, and if these changes matched...
  4. Responsible Teenage Fatherhood in a South African Historically Disadvantaged Community

    Responsible Teenage Fatherhood in a South African Historically Disadvantaged Community

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    This study explored the meaning of teenage fatherhood in a historically disadvantaged South African community. Open ended interviews on teenage fatherhood were conducted with sixteen teenage fathers aged between 16 and 21 years. The data were analysed using thematic content...
  5. Using past events to construct the present: Voices at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings

    Using past events to construct the present: Voices at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Linguistics and Applied Language Studies
    This article analyses the discursive thread of interpersonal meanings in several sets of documents: newspaper reports of what became known as the St James Church massacre in Cape Town in July 1993; excerpts from two applicants' and one witness' deposition...
  6. The ethics of HIV research with people who inject drugs in Africa: a desk review

    The ethics of HIV research with people who inject drugs in Africa: a desk review

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Injecting drug use is a growing problem in Africa and a growing risk factor for contracting HIV in the region. It is imperative that HIV research includes injecting drug users so that they too are able to benefit from safe...
  7. Youth mortality due to HIV/AIDS in South Africa, 2001–2009: An analysis of the levels of mortality using life table techniques

    Youth mortality due to HIV/AIDS in South Africa, 2001–2009: An analysis of the levels of mortality using life table techniques

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    South Africa has one of the highest HIV/AIDS prevalence rates in the world. It is estimated that 5.38 million South Africans are living with HIV/AIDS. In addition, new infections among adults aged 15+ were reportedly 316 900 in 2011. New...
  8. A re-contextualisation of Charles Keil's theory of participatory discrepancies in the music of the Presbyterian Church of Mozambique

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Musical Arts in Africa
    This article re-contextualises Charles Keil's theory of participatory discrepancies in order to examine how the members of the Presbyterian Church of Mozambique are able to create contexts for participatory performances of Reformed Church hymns that reflect the musical style of...
  9. Stable isotope evidence of food web connectivity by a top predatory fish (<em>Argyrosomus japonicus</em>: Sciaenidae: Teleostei) in the Kowie Estuary, South Africa

    Stable isotope evidence of food web connectivity by a top predatory fish (<em>Argyrosomus japonicus</em>: Sciaenidae: Teleostei) in the Kowie Estuary, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    In this study, food web connectivity within the Kowie Estuary on the south-east coast of South Africa was evidenced by the trophic behaviour of the predominantly piscivorous Argyrosomus japonicus. We examined stable isotopes of carbon (δ13C) and nitrogen (δ15N) in...
  10. The economics, financing and implementation of HIV treatment as prevention: What will it take to get there?

    The economics, financing and implementation of HIV treatment as prevention: What will it take to get there?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
