  1. Characterisation of microsatellite markers in the Spotted Sand Lizard (<em>Pedioplanis lineoocellata</em>) shows low levels of inbreeding and moderate genetic diversity on a small spatial scale

    Characterisation of microsatellite markers in the Spotted Sand Lizard (<em>Pedioplanis lineoocellata</em>) shows low levels of inbreeding and moderate genetic diversity on a small spatial scale

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Herpetology
    Population genetic methods can be useful for understanding spatial genetic patterns, gene flow and diversity. While genetic markers such as gene sequences are useful for understanding broad scale phylogeographic patterns, microsatellite markers allow for inferences within species and on smaller...
  2. Do deterministic processes influence the phenotypic patterns of animalivorous bat ensembles at urban rivers?

    Do deterministic processes influence the phenotypic patterns of animalivorous bat ensembles at urban rivers?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Although urbanization is perhaps the most damaging, persistent, and rapidly expanding form of anthropogenic pressure on natural ecosystems, data on the patterns and processes of sympatric bat species in urban landscapes are relatively scant. We quantified the packing and dispersion...
  3. Invertebrates or iron: does large-scale opencast mining impact invertebrate diversity in ephemeral wetlands?

    Invertebrates or iron: does large-scale opencast mining impact invertebrate diversity in ephemeral wetlands?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Disturbance has been offered as an explanatory mechanism in structuring the variation of species across a landscape. In this study, we investigated the effect of the impact by Kolomela Iron Mine on the variation of species occurring in temporary pans...
