  1. Reflection on the first five years of South Africa’s Acoustic Tracking Array Platform (ATAP): status, challenges and opportunities

    Reflection on the first five years of South Africa’s Acoustic Tracking Array Platform (ATAP): status, challenges and opportunities

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The Acoustic Tracking Array Platform (ATAP) is a marine science programme that monitors the movements and migrations of inshore marine animals along the South African coastline. Acoustically tagged animals are monitored by an expanded network of approximately 100 automated data-logging...
  2. PRELIMINARY OBSERVATIONS ON THE MACROCRUSTACEA OF COASTAL LAKES IN THE VICINITY OF RICHARDS BAY, ZULULAND, SOUTH AFRICA

    PRELIMINARY OBSERVATIONS ON THE MACROCRUSTACEA OF COASTAL LAKES IN THE VICINITY OF RICHARDS BAY, ZULULAND, SOUTH AFRICA

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    A limited amount of research has been carried out on the four coastal lakes in the Richards Bay area. Due to the impending threat of water pollution from industrial, mining and residential areas within the catchments of these lakes there...
  3. A LIMNOLOGICAL SYNOPSIS OF BHANGAZI SOUTH, A DYSTROPHIC COASTAL LAKE IN THE GREATER ST LUCIA WETLAND PARK (KWAZULU/NATAL), WITH COMMENTS ON ITS CONSERVATION VALUE.

    A LIMNOLOGICAL SYNOPSIS OF BHANGAZI SOUTH, A DYSTROPHIC COASTAL LAKE IN THE GREATER ST LUCIA WETLAND PARK (KWAZULU/NATAL), WITH COMMENTS ON ITS CONSERVATION VALUE.

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    Base-line limnological and biological data are given for Lake Bhangazi South, a small lake on the coastal plain of Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. This shallow (Zmax < 6 m), subtropical lake is a warm and seemingly continuously polymictic system, but experiences...
  4. Pilot survey to assess sample size for herbaceous species composition assessments using a wheel-point apparatus on the Zululand coastal plain

    Pilot survey to assess sample size for herbaceous species composition assessments using a wheel-point apparatus on the Zululand coastal plain

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    A pilot survey to determine sub-sample size (number of point observations per plot) for herbaceous species composition assessments, using a wheel-point apparatus applying the nearest-plant method, was conducted. Three plots differing in species composition on the Zululand coastal plain were...
  5. Translocation of marbled African lungfish, <em>Protopterus aethiopicus</em> (Telostei: Protopteridae), and its fishery in Lake Baringo, Kenya

    Translocation of marbled African lungfish, <em>Protopterus aethiopicus</em> (Telostei: Protopteridae), and its fishery in Lake Baringo, Kenya

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The translocation of the marbled African lungfish Protopterus aethiopicus into Lake Baringo created a new fishery for the local community, who capture them primarily in a bottom-set long line fishery. Its introduction, development and current fishery status in the lake...
  6. An exploratory investigation of the fish communities associated with reefs on the central Agulhas Bank, South Africa

    An exploratory investigation of the fish communities associated with reefs on the central Agulhas Bank, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Despite their ecological and economic importance, the temperate reef habitats of the central Agulhas Bank remain poorly studied. From 2008 to 2010, multiple stations grouped into six general sites of varying depth, profile and distance offshore, were surveyed. A combination...
  7. Site Indicator Species for Predicting Productivity of Pine Plantations in the Southern Cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    A means of predicting site potential for pine species in the Southern Cape based on 10 vegetation associations is presented.
  8. Reductions in Plant Species Richness under Stands of Alien Trees and Shrubs in the Fynbos Biome

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The reduction of species richness of indigenous plants is one of the major problems associated with the presence of dense stands of invasive alien trees and shrubs in the Fynbos Biome of the Cape Province, South Africa. A synthesis was...
  9. Floristic and Structural Composition of Wonderwoud Forest in the Wolkberg, North-Eastern Transvaal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The closed, evergreen forest of 450 ha was studied by means of a survey of 55 circular plots of 0,04 ha, distributed in a grid pattern. TWINSPAN classification separated the forest into four stand types: Olea capensis macrocarpa—Xymalos monospora—Syzygium gerrardii...
  10. Floristic and Structural Composition of Hanglip Forest in the Soutpansberg, Northern Transvaal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The closed, evergreen forest of 363 ha was sampled by means of 62 circular plots of 0,04 ha, distributed in a grid pattern. TWINSPAN classification separated the forest into regrowth forest with two forest types, and mature forest with four...
