  2. Gender-related morphometric differences in mature and nestling Crowned Eagles, with comments on ringing of eagle nestlings in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Gender-related morphometric differences in mature and nestling Crowned Eagles, with comments on ringing of eagle nestlings in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Although most raptor species are sexually dimorphic, many species are non-discrete in some metrics. A limited amount of existing data for southern Africa suggests that Crowned Eagles Stephanoaetus coronatus exhibit non-discrete sexual dimorphism. Consequently, we investigated gender-related morphometric data of...
  3. Gear selectivity of large-mesh nets and drumlines used to catch sharks in the Queensland Shark Control Program

    Gear selectivity of large-mesh nets and drumlines used to catch sharks in the Queensland Shark Control Program

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Catches of sharks and bycatch in large-mesh nets and baited drumlines used by the Queensland Shark Control Program were examined to determine the efficacy of both gear types and assess fishing strategies that minimise their impacts. There were few significant...

    Eating attitudes, body image satisfaction and self-esteem of South African Black and White male adolescents and their perception of female body silhouettes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Child & Adolescent Mental Health
    This cross-sectional study of urban high schools in Johannesburg, South Africa, sought to examine eating attitudes, body image and self-esteem among male adolescents (n = 391).

    Confronted with the thoroughgoing marketisation of education, scholars have revisited the nature of pedagogy. The work of Immanuel Kant is a resource for critiquing the channelling of the transformation of self and society into rapacious consumerism. Kant's exploration of the...
  6. Movement ecology of five Afrotropical waterfowl species from Malawi, Mali and Nigeria

    Movement ecology of five Afrotropical waterfowl species from Malawi, Mali and Nigeria

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Habitat availability for Afrotropical waterbirds is highly dynamic with unpredictable rainfall patterns and ephemeral wetlands resulting in diverse movement strategies among different species. Movement strategies among waterfowl encompass resident, regional and intercontinental migrants, but little quantitative information exists on their...
  7. Survival tactics within thermally-challenging roosts: heat tolerance and cold sensitivity in the Angolan free-tailed bat, <em>Mops condylurus</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Zoology
    We studied roost microclimates, thermal preferences and temperature-related variation in body temperatures and flight abilities of M. condylurus from three roosts in man-made structures in South Africa. Roosts were characterized by marked spatio-temporal variability in ambient temperature and relative humidity...
  8. Seasonal and daily variation in blood and urine concentrations of free-ranging Angolan free-tailed bats (<em>Mops condylurus</em>) in hot roosts in southern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Zoology
    Urine and plasma concentrations and haematocrits were measured in free-ranging Angolan free-tailed bats (Mops condylurus) inhabiting thermally-challenging roosts in the Komatipoort region of South Africa. Samples were collected in both autumn and summer, from bats caught emerging from roosts before...
