  1. 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...
  2. <em>Myosotella myosotis</em> (Mollusca: Ellobiidae) — an overlooked, but well-established introduced species in South Africa

    <em>Myosotella myosotis</em> (Mollusca: Ellobiidae) — an overlooked, but well-established introduced species in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Myosotella myosotis is shown to be a well-established alien species in South Africa. Discovered in Port Elizabeth more than 100 years ago, it was initially thought to be indigenous and was described under two different names, but subsequent taxonomic work...
  3. Restoring bare patches in the Nama-Karoo of South Africa

    Restoring bare patches in the Nama-Karoo of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Often veld degrades to a point beyond which vegetation cover, plant density and species composition do not recover despite the removal of the grazing impact. In such cases restoration interventions become necessary to assist with the re-establishment of vegetation. The...
  4. First record and redescription of the introduced sea anemone <em>Sagartia ornata</em> (Holdsworth, 1855) (Cnidaria: Actiniaria: Sagartiidae) from South Africa

    First record and redescription of the introduced sea anemone <em>Sagartia ornata</em> (Holdsworth, 1855) (Cnidaria: Actiniaria: Sagartiidae) from South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The brooding sea anemone Sagartia ornata is reported from South Africa for the first time and is redescribed. The species is abundant intertidally in Langebaan Lagoon, where it attaches to stones shal lowly buried in sediment. It is probably a...
  5. Additions to the barnacle (Crustacea: Cirripedia) fauna of South Africa

    Additions to the barnacle (Crustacea: Cirripedia) fauna of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The purpose of this paper is to document recent additions to the South African barnacle (Cirripedia) fauna. New species records were obtained by examining accumulated collections of unidentified material in the Iziko South African Museum, as well as via material...
  6. Disentangling the identities and distribution patterns of the introduced beachfleas <em>Orchestia gammarellus</em> and <em>Platorchestia platensis</em> (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Talitridae) in South Africa

    Disentangling the identities and distribution patterns of the introduced beachfleas <em>Orchestia gammarellus</em> and <em>Platorchestia platensis</em> (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Talitridae) in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Two introduced beachfleas, Orchestia gammarellus and Platorchestia platensis, have been recorded from South Africa, but have been misidentified by some earlier researchers and, prior to this study, each was also known from just a few, scattered observations, such that their...
  7. DNA barcoding of South Africa’s ornamental freshwater fish – are the names reliable?

    DNA barcoding of South Africa’s ornamental freshwater fish – are the names reliable?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Trade in freshwater ornamental fish in South Africa is currently regulated by a ‘blacklist’ to prevent potentially invasive taxa from establishing in the country. Because its effective implementation requires accurate identification, the aim of the present study was to test...
  8. Invasion status of Florida bass <em>Micropterus floridanus</em> (Lesueur, 1822) in South Africa

    Invasion status of Florida bass <em>Micropterus floridanus</em> (Lesueur, 1822) in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides are a popular North American angling species that was introduced into South Africa in 1928. To enhance the largemouth bass fisheries, Florida bass Micropterus floridanus were introduced into KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, in 1980. Knowledge on...
  9. 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.
  10. 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...
