  1. Digestive parameters and energy assimilation of Cape porcupine on economically important crops

    Digestive parameters and energy assimilation of Cape porcupine on economically important crops

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    To better understand how Cape porcupines are able to successfully occupy many agricultural lands, we studied their digestive parameters and energy assimilation when fed three economically important agricultural crops (potatoes [Solanum tuberosum], sweet potatoes [Ipomoea batatas] and butternut [Juglans cinerea])...
  2. Habitat use and home range of black-backed jackals (<em>Canis mesomelas</em>) on farmlands in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Habitat use and home range of black-backed jackals (<em>Canis mesomelas</em>) on farmlands in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Black-backed jackals (Canis mesomelas) are an abundant mesopredator on farmlands (croplands and rangelands) across South Africa. Given their adaptability in a changing anthropogenic landscape, knowledge of spatial movements can provide important ecological information on the species. We captured, collared and...
  3. Home range and habitat use of Trumpeter Hornbills <em>Bycanistes bucinator</em> in an urban–forest mosaic, Eshowe, South Africa<xref ref-type="fn" rid="FN0001"/>

    Home range and habitat use of Trumpeter Hornbills <em>Bycanistes bucinator</em> in an urban–forest mosaic, Eshowe, South Africa<xref ref-type="fn" rid="FN0001"/>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Despite the negative impacts of urbanisation, some species adapt to pressures of habitat loss and fragmentation. Trumpeter Hornbills Bycanistes bucinator are a large avian forest frugivore that uses urban environments in South Africa. Consequently, we used GPS/UHF transmitters to study...
  4. A fixed point theorem in <em>G</em>-metric spaces via <em>α</em>-series

    A fixed point theorem in <em>G</em>-metric spaces via <em>α</em>-series

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    In the context of G-metric spaces we prove a common fixed point theorem for a sequence of self mappings using a new concept of α-series.
  5. Bioprocessing of jackfruit (<em>Artocarpus heterophyllus</em> L.) pulp into wine: Technology, proximate composition and sensory evaluation

    Bioprocessing of jackfruit (<em>Artocarpus heterophyllus</em> L.) pulp into wine: Technology, proximate composition and sensory evaluation

    Major wineries are confined to using grapes as substrate, as a result of which other fruits, especially in the tropical zone, remain underutilised. A wine, from jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus L.) pulp, was prepared by fermenting with wine yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae)...
  6. Influence of electro-polishing characteristics on needle-tissue interaction forces

    Influence of electro-polishing characteristics on needle-tissue interaction forces

    The electro-polishing process was applied to stainless steel 304 with the aim of improving its surface texture. The electrolyte was a mixture of H2O, H2SO4 (98%) and H3PO4 (85%) at a volume ratio of 2:3:5. Gravimetric analysis and stylus profilometry...
