  1. Measuring water stress in <em>Pinus patula</em> Schiede ex Schlect. &amp; Cham. seedlings

    Measuring water stress in <em>Pinus patula</em> Schiede ex Schlect. &amp; Cham. seedlings

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A pot trial was conducted to investigate measures of water stress for Pinus patula seedlings planted for commercial forestry in South Africa. The objectives were to determine the efficacy of different equipment for quantifying water stress, and the effect of...
  2. <em>Themeda triandra</em>: a keystone grass species

    <em>Themeda triandra</em>: a keystone grass species

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Themeda triandra is a perennial tussock grass endemic to Africa, Australia and Asia. Within these regions it is found across a broad range of climates, geological substrates and ecosystems. Because it is widespread across these areas it has great economic...
  3. The relationship between temperature and standard rate of metabolism in African lungfish, <em>Protopterus aethiopicus</em>, from Uganda

    The relationship between temperature and standard rate of metabolism in African lungfish, <em>Protopterus aethiopicus</em>, from Uganda

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The relationship between temperature and metabolism among ancient (non-teleost) fishes, while largely unknown, is essential to an understanding of the effects of temperature on fish energetics. This study quantifies the effect of temperature on the standard rate of metabolism in...
  4. Results from four <em>Pinus patula</em> water planting trials in the summer rainfall region of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Hemisphere Forestry Journal
    Planting with water is used by some forestry companies in South Africa to reduce post-planting water stress. Four trials were implemented to test the response in survival of Pinus patula to water applied at planting. Two trials each were situated...
  5. Effects of waterlogging, salinity and light on the productivity of <em>Bruguiera gymnorrhiza</em> and <em>Heritiera littoralis</em> seedlings

    Effects of waterlogging, salinity and light on the productivity of <em>Bruguiera gymnorrhiza</em> and <em>Heritiera littoralis</em> seedlings

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    This study aimed to establish the effects of waterlogging, salinity and light on the early development of mangroves. Seedlings of Bruguiera gymnorrhiza (L.) Lamk. and Heritiera littoralis Dryand were exposed to 12 weeks of waterlogging, during which time growth and...
