  4. Estimating Cape hare occupancy and abundance in southern Tunisia using spotlighting data

    Estimating Cape hare occupancy and abundance in southern Tunisia using spotlighting data

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    This study outlines the importance of integrating spotlighting data and occupancy modelling to estimate the spatial occupancy, abundance and habitat preferences of Cape hares Lepus capensis in southern Tunisia. Exploring the spatial distribution pattern of this species is problematic because...
  5. The Use of Roots to Test N, P and K Deficiencies in <em>Eucalyptus</em> Nutrition

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Bioassays have been developed which can provide diagnostics of the nutritional status of trees. They measure the flux of N, P or Rb for K into roots from standard solutions where the rate of influx is inversely related to nutrient...
