  1. Indigenous High Forests in the Transvaal with Special Reference to Inventory and Monitoring Systems

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The indigenous forests in the Transvaal comprise a total area of 35 385 ha, of which 18 088 ha or 51% are situated on State forest land. The forests are found mainly along the Drakensberg escarpment and, to a lesser...
  2. Conservation Developments in South African Forestry

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The historical development of environmental conservational activities within the South African Forestry Industry is followed, and the changing emphasis from the conservation of the remaining indigenous forests (pre-1900) to water conservation, to natural assets and unplanted areas is highlighted. The...
  3. Habitat use by indigenous grazing ungulates in relation to sward structure and veld condition

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The objective of the study was to examine the relationships between the habitat requirements of different wild ungulate species, sward structure and veld condition. Veld condition score was correlated with sward height: habitats with high condition scores were dominated by...
  4. Recent population trends of African penguins <em>Spheniscus demersus</em> in Namibia

    Recent population trends of African penguins <em>Spheniscus demersus</em> in Namibia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The African penguin Spheniscus demersus is endemic to southern Africa and is listed overall as "vulnerable". Over the past century, however, the Namibian population has been severely reduced and is currently listed as "critically endangered". Recent trends at Possession, Halifax,...
  5. COASTAL AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS, CONSERVATION AND MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES IN NIGERIA

    COASTAL AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS, CONSERVATION AND MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES IN NIGERIA

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    The coastal ecosystems in Nigeria are classified into four broad regions according to differences in general morphology, vegetation and beach type. They are the barrier lagoon complex, the transgressive mud beach, the Niger delta and the strand coast. The delta...
  6. Estimated spatial requirements of the medium- to large-sized mammals, according to broad habitat units, in the Cape Floristic Region, South Africa

    Estimated spatial requirements of the medium- to large-sized mammals, according to broad habitat units, in the Cape Floristic Region, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Conservation planning in the Cape Floristic Region (CFR) of South Africa, a recognised world plant diversity hotspot, required information on the estimated spatial requirements of selected medium- to large-sized mammals within each of 102 Broad Habitat Units (BHUs) delineated according...
  7. Prioritising range-wide scientific monitoring of the Cape fur seal in southern Africa

    Prioritising range-wide scientific monitoring of the Cape fur seal in southern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The range of the Cape fur seal Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus population largely coincides with the region of the cold, nutrient-rich Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem (BCLME) adjoining the west coast of South Africa, Namibia and Angola. Range-wide scientific monitoring of...
  8. Ecological integrity assessment of the fish assemblages of the Matigulu/Nyoni and Umvoti estuaries, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Ecological integrity assessment of the fish assemblages of the Matigulu/Nyoni and Umvoti estuaries, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The estuarine fish community index (EFCI) and an estuarine fish guild assessment (EFGA) were used in 2004 and 2008 to determine the ecological state and effects of selected ecosystem variables on the Umvoti and Matigulu/Nyoni estuaries. The EFCI indicated that...
  9. Evaluating seal–seabird interactions in southern Africa: a critical review

    Evaluating seal–seabird interactions in southern Africa: a critical review

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Through predation and displacement, the Cape fur seal Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus poses a threat to several seabird species that breed in southern Africa. Measures such as the culling of 'problem' seals have been introduced to negate the effects on these...
  10. Does estuarine health relate to catchment land-cover in the East Kleinemonde system, South Africa?

    Does estuarine health relate to catchment land-cover in the East Kleinemonde system, South Africa?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Temporarily open/closed estuaries in South Africa are being subjected to varying degrees of catchment land-cover transformation. Natural landscapes and hydrological functions are integral to the functioning of estuaries. The relationship between catchment land-cover and the health of the East Kleinemonde...
