  1. Game fence presence and permeability influences the local movement and distribution of South African mammals

    Game fence presence and permeability influences the local movement and distribution of South African mammals

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Fences are utilised throughout the world to restrict the movements of wildlife, protecting them from threats and reducing human–wildlife conflict. In South Africa the number of privately-owned fenced game reserves has greatly increased in recent years, but little is known...
  2. Microbial community function and structure on coal mine discard under rehabilitation

    Microbial community function and structure on coal mine discard under rehabilitation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The rehabilitation of coal mine discard is problematic, especially since the lack of measures to evaluate the success of rehabilitation in terms of the self-sustainability of soil ecosystems established on these sites. In this study, the potential for using microbial...
  3. The effect of canola (<em>Brassica napus</em>) as a biofumigant on soil microbial communities and plant vitality: a pot study

    The effect of canola (<em>Brassica napus</em>) as a biofumigant on soil microbial communities and plant vitality: a pot study

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Canola (Brassica napus) may be incorporated into soil as a biofumigant for control of pathogens such as Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. Yet, the effect of biofumigants on natural microbial communities required to maintain soil functions is still unclear. A pot experiment with...
  4. 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.
  5. On the dynamics of demersal fish assemblages off Namibia in the 1990s

    On the dynamics of demersal fish assemblages off Namibia in the 1990s

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Demersal fish surveys carried out off Namibia from 1990 to 2000 were used to study the dynamics of demersal fish assemblages on the shelf and upper slope. The study was performed on each major assemblage, i.e. over the shelf (100–300...
  6. The structure of demersal assemblages off Namibia in relation to abiotic factors

    The structure of demersal assemblages off Namibia in relation to abiotic factors

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Groundfish surveys carried out between October 1992 and October 1996 were used to describe the demersal assemblages of the northern Benguela along the Namibian coast. Multivariate analyses indicated a clear separation between shelf and slope habitats, which were divided into...
  7. 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...
  8. STUDIES ON THE ZOOBENTHOS OF SOME SOUTHERN CAPE COASTAL LAKES. SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL CHANGES IN THE BENTHOS OF SWARTVLEI, SOUTH AFRICA, IN RELATION TO CHANGES IN THE SUBMERGED LITTORAL MACROPHYTE COMMUNITY

    STUDIES ON THE ZOOBENTHOS OF SOME SOUTHERN CAPE COASTAL LAKES. SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL CHANGES IN THE BENTHOS OF SWARTVLEI, SOUTH AFRICA, IN RELATION TO CHANGES IN THE SUBMERGED LITTORAL MACROPHYTE COMMUNITY

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    Major changes in the benthic macro-invertebrate community of the littoral zone of Swartvlei, South Africa, took place between January and April 1978, and the equivalent months of 1980. These changes, which were associated with a collapse of the submerged littoral...
  9. OBSERVATIONS ON TEMPORAL TRENDS IN PHYTOPLANKTON DIVERSITY IN THE VAAL RIVER AT BALKFONTEIN, SOUTH AFRICA

    OBSERVATIONS ON TEMPORAL TRENDS IN PHYTOPLANKTON DIVERSITY IN THE VAAL RIVER AT BALKFONTEIN, SOUTH AFRICA

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    Phytoplankton diversity in the Vaal River at Balkfontein from March to October 1984 was investigated by employing different diversity indices. Most diversity indices showed appreciable variation during the study period indicating specific temporal trends. Greatest diversity was demonstrated for warmer...
  10. HUMAN ACTIVITIES AND FACTORS AFFECTING THE DISTRIBUTION OF MACROBENTHIC FAUNA IN SALDANHA BAY

    HUMAN ACTIVITIES AND FACTORS AFFECTING THE DISTRIBUTION OF MACROBENTHIC FAUNA IN SALDANHA BAY

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    The most recent trends in the economic development of Saldanha Bay are towards the tourist and mariculture industries, both of which are dependent on a high quality of water. Yet this water quality is now under threat. In this study,...
