  2. Development of a technique for assessing veld condition in the Kruger National Park using key grass species

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    A technique based on key grass species was developed for assessing veld condition in the Kruger National Park in terms of its potential to produce grass forage for consumption by herbivores and fine fuels for veld burning. Fourteen grass species...

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    Cohorts of Daphnia pulex from Boskop Dam, an irrigation reservoir near Potchefstroom, Transvaal, were kept at natural food levels under constant temperatures of 10, 15 and 20°C as well as under conditions of temperature with a diurnal fluctuation varying between...
  5. EFFECT OF PROGRAMMED CIRCADIAN TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATIONS ON POPULATION DYNAMICS OF <em>BULINUS TROPICUS</em> (KRAUSS) AND <em>LYMNAEA NATALENSIS</em> KRAUSS (GASTROPODA: MOLLUSCA)

    EFFECT OF PROGRAMMED CIRCADIAN TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATIONS ON POPULATION DYNAMICS OF <em>BULINUS TROPICUS</em> (KRAUSS) AND <em>LYMNAEA NATALENSIS</em> KRAUSS (GASTROPODA: MOLLUSCA)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    Until now all life-table studies on Bulinus tropicus (Krauss) and Lymnaea natalensis Krauss involving temperature as the variable factor have been conducted at constant temperatures. This study evaluates the effect of programmed, circadian temperature fluctuations, ranging from 18 to 28...
