  1. Grazing management that regenerates ecosystem function and grazingland livelihoods

    Grazing management that regenerates ecosystem function and grazingland livelihoods

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Adopting a systems view and regenerative philosophy can indicate how to regenerate ecosystem function on commercial-scale agro-ecological landscapes. Adaptive multi-paddock grazing management is an example of an approach for grazinglands. Leading conservation farmers have achieved superior results in ecosystem improvement,...
  2. Multiple Resource Utilisation Developments in Mondi Forests

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Defined as the use of available resources other than the planted trees on Mondi's landholdings, the development of various MRU projects is described from 1975 onwards. Projects are differentiated into those that are directly dependant on the presence of planted...
  3. The expected response <em>of acacia karroo</em> hayne to moisture stress and defoliation

    The expected response <em>of acacia karroo</em> hayne to moisture stress and defoliation

    The generalised growth of woody species and their response to defoliation is presented to provide a conceptual background for an examination of the growth of Acacia karroo and its response to defoliation. Particular attention is paid to water stress and...
  4. Veld management in the semi‐arid bush‐grass communities of the eastern cape

    Veld management in the semi‐arid bush‐grass communities of the eastern cape

    Ecologically and economically the most acceptable way of using the vegetation in these ecosystems is to stock with grazers and browsers to utilize both the herbaceous and the woody plants. The major factor limiting primary production is a low and...
  5. Growth patterns and annual growth cycle of <em>Acacia karroo</em> Hayne in relation to water stress I. Leaf and shoot growth

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    A field study was conducted to describe the growth patterns of A. karroo at different levels of water stress in different edaphic situations.
  6. The response of <em>Acacia karroo</em> plants to defoliation by hand compared to defoliation by goats

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The leaf and shoot growth of Acacia karroo plants defoliated by goats was compared to that of plants in which leaf only or leaf plus shoot‐tips were removed by hand, to simulate goat browsing.
  7. Growth patterns and annual growth cycle of <em>Acacia karroo</em> hayne in relation to water stress

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The use and replenishment of carbohydrate reserves in Acacia karroo is closely related to the successive events of the annual growth cycle. Acacia karroo displayed the rapid and substantial decline in non‐structural carbohydrates typical of deciduous woody species. In addition,...
  8. Effect of the intensity and phenophase of defoliation and water stress on the rate of photosynthesis and the recovery of carbohydrate reserves in <em>acacia karroo</em> hayne

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    A field study was conducted with Acacia karroo plants to determine changes in relative photosynthetic rates, the extent of carbohydrate reserve depletion and the rate reserves take to recover, following defoliation by goats at different intensities and phenophases, at a...
  9. The expected response of <em>acacia karroo</em> hayne to moisture stress and defoliation

    The expected response of <em>acacia karroo</em> hayne to moisture stress and defoliation

    The generalised growth of woody species and their response to defoliation is presented to provide a conceptual background for an examination of the growth of Acacia karroo and its response to defoliation. Particular attention is paid to water stress and...
  10. The role of <em>acacia karroo</em> in the false thornveld of the eastern cape <em>die rol van</em> acacia karroo <em>in die skyn‐doring veld van die oos‐kaap</em>

    The role of <em>acacia karroo</em> in the false thornveld of the eastern cape <em>die rol van</em> acacia karroo <em>in die skyn‐doring veld van die oos‐kaap</em>

    An investigation was undertaken to determine the relationship between tree density and grass production, tree density and overall feed production and between tree density and animal production. It was found that grass production does not decrease linearly with increasing tree...
