  1. The long-term effects of fire regime on primary production of montane grasslands in South Africa

    The long-term effects of fire regime on primary production of montane grasslands in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Natural grasslands deliver essential ecosystem services through plant production, which enhances water supply, nutrient cycling, soil retention and greenhouse gas mitigation. Although the condition of montane grasslands for provision of ecosystem services is maintained by regular annual or biennial burning,...
  2. The effect of thirty years of burning on the Highland Sourveld of Natal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    A veld condition assessment was used to determine the effect of past burning treatments on the species composition of Highland Sourveld at Cathedral Peak. Veld condition scores in grassland protected from fire were significantly lower than where veld had been...
  3. Characteristics of fire behaviour in the montane grasslands of natal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Fire behaviour characteristics were investigated in the montane grasslands of the Natal Drakensberg. The behaviour of experimental fires was measured together with the accompanying biotic and abiotic conditions. Estimates of heat yield, mass of available fuel and forward rate of...
  4. The dynamics of <em>Themeda Triandra</em> tillers in relation to burning in the natal Drakensberg

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Marked tillers of Themeda triandra were sampled regularly over a two year period in Highland Sourveld burnt annually in winter, biennially in spring and after a single summer and early winter burning treatment. Parameters recorded were height of shoot apex,...

    ‘The epidemic in this country has the face of a woman’<sup>1</sup>: Gender and HIV/AIDS in South Africa<sup>2</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Epidemiological data clearly show that the highest levels of HIV prevalence occur in sub-Saharan Africa. Less visible, however, is the complex combination of forces that fuel HIV epidemics in this region — these have been dubbed 'the lethal cocktail.' It...
  8. Factors Affecting the Timing of Grassland Regrowth after Fire in the Montane Grasslands of Natal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Recent research has indicated that burning Highland Sourveld once growth has been initiated increases grass tiller mortality. Present burning prescriptions could therefore be improved by an insight into the factors controlling the initiation of grass growth in spring. It was...
