  1. Hypogonadism and associated risk factors in male patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus attending the diabetic clinic of Tikur Anbessa Specialized Teaching Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

    Hypogonadism and associated risk factors in male patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus attending the diabetic clinic of Tikur Anbessa Specialized Teaching Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

    Background: A high prevalence of hypogonadism among men with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has been reported worldwide. This in turn creates a substantial public health burden in terms of inadequate sexual function and potential infertility. However, the status of...
  2. Relationship between ergot and grain mould development in sorghum (<em>Sorghum bicolor</em> (L.) Moench)

    Relationship between ergot and grain mould development in sorghum (<em>Sorghum bicolor</em> (L.) Moench)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A greenhouse experiment was conducted to determine the influence of sorghum ergot on the incidence of grain mould pathogens and on damage to sorghum grains. Grain mould pathogens used were Curvularia lunata, Fusarium subglutinans and Phoma sorghina. Inoculation with the...
  3. Occurrence and pathogenicity of <em>Puccinia triticina</em> on wheat in South Africa during 2007

    Occurrence and pathogenicity of <em>Puccinia triticina</em> on wheat in South Africa during 2007

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A survey was conducted during 2007 to determine the occurrence and pathogenicity of Puccinia triticina Eriks., the cause of wheat leaf rust, in South Africa. Leaf rust was widely observed in the wheat growing areas of the Western Cape but...
  4. Spawning migrations of Lake Tana <em>Labeobarbus</em> spp. (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) in the Ribb River, Ethiopia

    Spawning migrations of Lake Tana <em>Labeobarbus</em> spp. (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) in the Ribb River, Ethiopia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Spawning migration of the endemic Labeobarbus species of Lake Tana upstream and downstream of a proposed site for a large dam on the Ribb River, Ethiopia, were investigated to assess the dam's potential impact on these fish. Fish were collected...
  5. Effect of large weirs on abundance and diversity of migratory <em>Labeobarbus</em> species in tributaries of Lake Tana, Ethiopia

    Effect of large weirs on abundance and diversity of migratory <em>Labeobarbus</em> species in tributaries of Lake Tana, Ethiopia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Lake Tana has a remarkable fish diversity, including 17 endemic Labeobarbus species, of which nine spawn in the inflowing rivers. Three of the migratory species are threatened, namely the endangered Labeobarbus macrophtalmus and the vulnerable L. acutirostris and L. platydorsus...
  6. Adult plant resistance to leaf rust and stem rust of wheat in a newly developed recombinant inbred line population

    Adult plant resistance to leaf rust and stem rust of wheat in a newly developed recombinant inbred line population

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Leaf rust caused by Puccinia triticina and stem rust by P. graminis f. sp. tritici are the most destructive diseases of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), resulting in substantial yield losses globally. A continuous search for new sources of effective rust...
