  1. Upgrading opportunities in agricultural value chains: Lessons from the analysis of the consumption of processed pineapple products in southern Benin

    Upgrading opportunities in agricultural value chains: Lessons from the analysis of the consumption of processed pineapple products in southern Benin

    This study analyzed the consumption of processed pineapple products in southern Benin. The low processing of agricultural products does not enable sub-Saharan Africa to exploit the potential of agriculture for development. The objective of this paper was to identify upgrading...
  2. Artisanal gill-net fishery catches of the catfish, <em>Schilbe intermedius</em> (Teleostei: Schilbeidae), in two tributaries of the Ouémé River, Bénin, West Africa

    Artisanal gill-net fishery catches of the catfish, <em>Schilbe intermedius</em> (Teleostei: Schilbeidae), in two tributaries of the Ouémé River, Bénin, West Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Artisanal fishery gill-net catches of the catfish Schilbe intermedius were studied in the Okpara and Zou tributaries of the Ouémé River, Benin in 1999 and 2000. The largest fish caught at the Toué and Kpassa stations measured 26.2cm and 24.5cm...
  3. Stable isotope analysis to examine possible diet-morphology relationships among Red-whiskered Bulbuls introduced on Réunion Island

    Stable isotope analysis to examine possible diet-morphology relationships among Red-whiskered Bulbuls introduced on Réunion Island

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    A recent study on the introduced Red-whiskered Bulbul Pycnonotus jocosus on Réunion Island has highlighted the existence of rapid morphological divergence in bill size between the leeward and windward sides of the island. The hypothesis that diet could explain such...
  4. Early selection of <em>Eucalyptus</em> clones in retrospective nursery test using growth, morphological and dry matter criteria, in Republic of Congo

    Early selection of <em>Eucalyptus</em> clones in retrospective nursery test using growth, morphological and dry matter criteria, in Republic of Congo

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Within the framework of the eucalyptus breeding programme in the Congo, two retrospective tests were conducted using mature clones in the field and young cuttings under nursery conditions with two hybrids: 13 clones of Eucalyptus tereticornis* Eucalyptus grandis for the...
  5. Food Habits of <em>Aubria Subsigillata</em> in Gaboon (Anura: Ranidae)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Zoologica Africana
    In Gaboon, the frog Aubria subsigillata, at least at certain periods of the year, eats fishes of the genus Epiplatys. The fish are caught when they jump out of the water to escape their aquatic predators, or to look for...
  6. The impact of burning on the microhabitat used by two species of couas in the western dry forest of Madagascar

    The impact of burning on the microhabitat used by two species of couas in the western dry forest of Madagascar

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Habitat structure — an important consideration in all ecological studies of relationships between animals and their environment — can be studied at different scales. This topic was studied at the microhabitat scale in burned and unburned plots of a dry...

    This essay deals with the relationship between rhetoric and anthropology, along three main lines of argument. The author offers reflections on the relationship between the two fields, highlighting contentious intersections, as in the case of the French anthropological tradition. He...
  8. Pressure effects on membrane-based functions and energy metabolism: a review

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Zoology
    This review will consider the effects of hydrostatic pressure on some cellular functions related to membrane- localized processes. After a general survey of experimental evidence showing the wide variety of membrane- linked mechanisms that are perturbed by changes in hydrostatic...
  9. Oral histories of HIV/AIDS support group members, NGO workers and home-based carers in KwaZulu-Natal

    Oral histories of HIV/AIDS support group members, NGO workers and home-based carers in KwaZulu-Natal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    The purpose of this paper is to bring to the attention of the AIDS research community the existence of an oral history project known as the Memories of AIDS Project. The project focused on HIV/AIDS support group members, non-governmental organisation...
  10. Genetic variability of growth and wood chemical properties in a clonal population of <em>Eucalyptus urophylla</em> × <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> in the Congo

    Genetic variability of growth and wood chemical properties in a clonal population of <em>Eucalyptus urophylla</em> × <em>Eucalyptus grandis</em> in the Congo

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Thirty-four Eucalyptus urophylla × Eucalyptus grandis hybrids were evaluated with a view to selecting for improved growth and wood-quality traits for plantations in the Congo. Height, circumference at breast height and volume were measured at 12, 27, 37, 49 and...
