  1. Stock-environment recruitment analysis for Namibian Cape hake <em>Merluccius capensis</em>

    Stock-environment recruitment analysis for Namibian Cape hake <em>Merluccius capensis</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The factors modulating recruitment success of Cape hake Merluccius capensis in Namibian waters are still unresolved. In this study, we used generalised additive models, regression tree analysis and the conventional Ricker model to examine the effect of environmental indices and...
  2. Towards the development of environmental indices for the Namibian shelf, with particular reference to fisheries management

    Towards the development of environmental indices for the Namibian shelf, with particular reference to fisheries management

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The Namibian Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources has the task of collecting and providing relevant oceanographic information for management of their fisheries. However, quality information is difficult to provide because of the complexity of the processes involved in the...
  3. Cross-shelf biogeochemical characteristics of sediments in the central Benguela and their relationship to overlying water column hypoxia

    Cross-shelf biogeochemical characteristics of sediments in the central Benguela and their relationship to overlying water column hypoxia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Data from two cross-shelf sediment sampling cruises were used to explain reasons for the sediment biogeochemical variability in respect of carbon, nitrogen and sulphur, and how the cycling of these elements governs the biogeochemistry of the overlying water through their...
  4. Herpes simplex virus I and II: a therapeutic approach

    Herpes simplex virus I and II: a therapeutic approach

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Family Practice
    Herpes simplex viruses (HSV) are ubiquitous in humans, and infection with HSV produces a diverse spectrum of disease. The vast majority of HSV infections in adults are easily recognised and relatively benign in their clinical manifestation, but occasionally, life-threatening infections,...
  5. Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2: a therapeutic approach

    Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2: a therapeutic approach

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Epidemiology and Infection
    Herpes simplex viruses (HSVs) are ubiquitous in humans and infection with HSV produces a diverse spectrum of disease. The vast majority of HSV infections in adults are easily recognised and relatively benign in their clinical manifestation but occasionally life-threatening infections...
  6. Microbiological evaluation and antimicrobial treatment of complicated intra-abdominal infections

    Microbiological evaluation and antimicrobial treatment of complicated intra-abdominal infections

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Epidemiology and Infection
    Intra-abdominal infection is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The principles of management of intra-abdominal infections include adequate surgical procedures, as well as antimicrobial therapy. This review provides insights into the microbiology of complicated intra-abdominal infections and offers an...
  7. Environmental influence on phytoplankton communities in the northern Benguela ecosystem

    Environmental influence on phytoplankton communities in the northern Benguela ecosystem

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    An investigation of surface phytoplankton communities was undertaken on the shelf of the northern Benguela upwelling ecosystem during austral autumn (May) and spring (September), along latitudinal transects at 20° S and 23° S, from 2 to 70 nautical miles offshore,...
