    Urban cemeteries in Swaziland: materialising dignity

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Anthropology Southern Africa
    This photo essay traces the materiality of urban cemeteries in Swaziland to underscore the production of dignity in contemporary funeral culture. Increasingly, death and burial in town are realities for many people who have lost social ties or land tenure...
  2. Love matters: exploring conceptions of love in Rwanda and Swaziland and relationship to HIV and intimate partner violence

    Love matters: exploring conceptions of love in Rwanda and Swaziland and relationship to HIV and intimate partner violence

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Health risks such as intimate partner violence (IPV) and HIV infection often occur within intimate sexual relationships, yet the study of love and intimacy is largely absent from health research on African populations. This study explores how women and men...
  3. AIDS communications through social networks: catalyst for behaviour changes in Uganda

    AIDS communications through social networks: catalyst for behaviour changes in Uganda

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Objective: To investigate distinctive communications through social networks which may be associated with population behaviour changes and HIV prevalence declines in Uganda compared to other countries.
  4. POPULATION DYNAMICS AND DEMOGRAPHY OF AN ESTUARINE COPEPOD (<em>PSEUDODIAPTOMUS EESSEI</em>) IN LAKE SIBAYA, A SUBTROPICAL FRESHWATER COASTAL LAKE

    POPULATION DYNAMICS AND DEMOGRAPHY OF AN ESTUARINE COPEPOD (<em>PSEUDODIAPTOMUS EESSEI</em>) IN LAKE SIBAYA, A SUBTROPICAL FRESHWATER COASTAL LAKE

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    Population size and stage structure of Pseudodiaptomus hessei (Mrázek) was studied over 27 months at a single site in subtropical Lake Sibaya. Population density varied seasonally from about 1 to 4 individuals per litre, but a fairly stable population structure...
  5. 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...
  6. Impacts of non-selective grazing on cover, composition, and productivity of Nama-karoo grassy shrubland

    Impacts of non-selective grazing on cover, composition, and productivity of Nama-karoo grassy shrubland

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The non-selective rotational grazing system has undergone a long and controversial development. The merits of this grazing system, where relatively large numbers of livestock are herded into numerous small paddocks for short timespans with long rests between grazings, have not...
  7. Predicting the extent of succulent thicket under current and future climate scenarios

    Predicting the extent of succulent thicket under current and future climate scenarios

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Using data from the distribution records of the facultative CAM succulent shrub Portulacaria afra, and high resolution climate response surfaces, we developed a spatially explicit model of the potential distribution of the species in the Thicket Biome of the eastern...
  8. Response to elevated CO<sub>2</sub> from a natural spring in a C<sub>4</sub>-dominated grassland depends on seasonal phenology

    Response to elevated CO<sub>2</sub> from a natural spring in a C<sub>4</sub>-dominated grassland depends on seasonal phenology

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    A South African C4-dominated grassland was exposed to twice-ambient atmospheric CO2 concentration using gas emitted by a natural CO2 spring and distributed over a 7m x 7m plot. A similar control plot was established 20m away at near-ambient CO2 concentrations...
  9. A comparison of the effects of different rangeland management systems on plant species composition, diversity and vegetation structure in a semi-arid savanna

    A comparison of the effects of different rangeland management systems on plant species composition, diversity and vegetation structure in a semi-arid savanna

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Most of South Africa's land surface is arid or semi-arid rangeland. Three management systems exploit these areas: commercial livestock ranching, communal livestock ranching and game ranching. The ways in which these management systems affect rangeland ecology is contentious due to...
  10. Factors affecting <em>in sacco</em> dietary degradation by Ankole cattle grazing natural range pastures in Uganda

    Factors affecting <em>in sacco</em> dietary degradation by Ankole cattle grazing natural range pastures in Uganda

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The in sacco disappearance of dietary dry matter after 48h of incubation in the rumen (DMd) was examined for its relationship with seasonal changes in neutral detergent fibre (NDFd), crude protein (CPd), cellulose (CELL), hemicellulose (HCELL), acid detergent lignin (ADLd)...
