  1. Evidence of multiple divergent mitochondrial lineages within the southern African diplopod genus <em>Bicoxidens</em> Attems, 1928 (Spirostreptida)

    Evidence of multiple divergent mitochondrial lineages within the southern African diplopod genus <em>Bicoxidens</em> Attems, 1928 (Spirostreptida)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Two recent studies have suggested that divergent mitochondrial lineages may be present within spirostreptid genera such as Bicoxidens Attems, 1928. Bicoxidens, similar to many other endemic soil invertebrates, exhibits low dispersal capabilities and strict microclimate habitat preferences, attributes that often...
  2. Estimating wood volume from canopy area in deciduous woodlands of Zimbabwe

    Estimating wood volume from canopy area in deciduous woodlands of Zimbabwe

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    In this study we tested the predictive ability of canopy area in estimating wood volume in deciduous woodlands of Zimbabwe. The study was carried out in four sites of different climatic conditions. We used regression analysis to statistically quantify the...
  3. Beef traders’ and consumers’ perceptions on the development of a natural pasture-fed beef brand by smallholder cattle producers in South Africa

    Beef traders’ and consumers’ perceptions on the development of a natural pasture-fed beef brand by smallholder cattle producers in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Beef traders’ and consumers’ perceptions on the development of a natural pasture-fed beef (NPB) brand by smallholder cattle producers were investigated. In total, 18 meat traders (five abattoirs and 13 beef retailers) and 155 beef consumers were interviewed using structured...
  4. Determinants and opportunities for commercial marketing of beef cattle raised on communally owned natural pastures in South Africa

    Determinants and opportunities for commercial marketing of beef cattle raised on communally owned natural pastures in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The objective of this study was to examine the factors influencing smallholder producers’ potential to sell cattle and identify marketing opportunities for sustainable beef production in South Africa. A total of 95 structured questionnaires was administered to the Ncorha and...
  5. Estimating forest carbon stocks in tropical dry forests of Zimbabwe: exploring the performance of high and medium spatial-resolution multispectral sensors

    Estimating forest carbon stocks in tropical dry forests of Zimbabwe: exploring the performance of high and medium spatial-resolution multispectral sensors

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Estimation and mapping of forest dendrometric characteristics such as carbon stocks using remote sensing techniques is fundamental for improved understanding of the role of forests in the carbon cycle and climate change. In this study, we tested whether and to...
