  1. A qualitative analysis of the barriers to antiretroviral therapy initiation among children 2 to 18 months of age in Swaziland

    A qualitative analysis of the barriers to antiretroviral therapy initiation among children 2 to 18 months of age in Swaziland

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    HIV/AIDS remains one of the leading causes of death among children under 5 years old in Swaziland. Although studies have shown that early initiation of infants and children diagnosed with HIV on antiretroviral therapy (ART) significantly reduces mortality, many children...
  2. EFFECT OF CATTLE DIP CONTAINING TOXAPHENE ON THE FAUNA OF A SOUTH AFRICAN RIVER

    EFFECT OF CATTLE DIP CONTAINING TOXAPHENE ON THE FAUNA OF A SOUTH AFRICAN RIVER

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    In August 1978 the Hluhluwe River, which runs through the Hluhluwe Game Reserve (Natal, South Africa), was polluted by toxaphene from a cattle dip tank. Faunal surveys were conducted to determine the impact of the insecticide on the fish and...

  4. Lesser Flamingo <em>Phoeniconaias minor</em> as a nomadic species in African shallow alkaline lakes and pans: genetic structure and future perspectives

    Lesser Flamingo <em>Phoeniconaias minor</em> as a nomadic species in African shallow alkaline lakes and pans: genetic structure and future perspectives

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    The Lesser Flamingo Phoeniconaias minor is a nomadic species, which inhabits shallow alkaline lakes and pans in sub-Saharan Africa and southern Asia. The extent of genetic diversity and the degree of differentiation within and among populations are important factors to...

    Objectifs et priorités pour la conservation des oiseaux et de la biodiversité d'Afrique

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Biodiversity is facing an extinction crisis, with rates of species loss three orders of magnitude higher than average throughout geological history. However, neither biodiversity nor threats are randomly distributed around the planet, and so it is extremely important to target...
  6. East African flyway and key site network of the Lesser Flamingo (<em>Phoenicopterus minor</em>) documented through satellite tracking

    East African flyway and key site network of the Lesser Flamingo (<em>Phoenicopterus minor</em>) documented through satellite tracking

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    In October 2002, four adult Lesser Flamingos were tagged at Lake Bogoria, Kenya: two with solar-powered platform transmitter terminals (PTTs) and two with battery-powered PTTs, one of which stopped transmitting after 38d. In July 2003, an additional four birds were...
  7. Lesser Flamingo <em>Phoenicopterus minor</em> populations in eastern and southern Africa are not genetically isolated

    Lesser Flamingo <em>Phoenicopterus minor</em> populations in eastern and southern Africa are not genetically isolated

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    A preliminary analysis of the phylogeographic pattern of the two main African populations of Lesser Flamingo Phoenicopterus minor from East and southern Africa was carried out to evaluate possible gene flow. A fragment of mitochondrial DNA encoding the NADH dehydrogenase...
  8. Reproductive biology of <em>Corymbia citriodora</em> subsp. <em>variegata</em> and effective pollination across its native range in Queensland, Australia

    Reproductive biology of <em>Corymbia citriodora</em> subsp. <em>variegata</em> and effective pollination across its native range in Queensland, Australia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    The spotted gum species complex represents a group of four eucalypt hardwood taxa that have a native range that spans the east coast of Australia, with a morphological cline from Victoria to northern Queensland. Of this group, Corymbia citriodora subsp...
  9. White-breasted Cormorant, <em>Phalacrocorax carbo,</em> breeding season timing and its control factors at a seasona

    White-breasted Cormorant, <em>Phalacrocorax carbo,</em> breeding season timing and its control factors at a seasona

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Environmental factors and breeding activity of the White-breasted Cormorant were documented over two breeding seasons (1995/96) at a new 900-nest colony near Lake Naivasha, Kenya (00° 46′S, 36° 22′E), a non-seasonal lake. Breeding of this species has been reported to...
  10. Effect of breeding timing on White-breasted Cormorant (<em>Phalacrocorax carbo</em>) reproductive success at a seas

    Effect of breeding timing on White-breasted Cormorant (<em>Phalacrocorax carbo</em>) reproductive success at a seas

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    White-breasted Cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo) breeding timing and reproductive success were documented in 1995 and 1996 at Lake Naivasha, Kenya (0°49'S), considered to be seasonally constant. In both years, pairs breeding earlier fledged significantly more chicks per breeding attempt than pairs...
