    Land Cover Change Impacts on Beef Cattle Productivity under Changing Climate: Case of Ilemela and Magu Districts, Tanzania

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal
    The study focused on contributing to the spatial knowledge of the impacts of land cover changes on beef cattle production under a changing climate in rangelands of the Lake Victoria Basin (LVB), so as to establish a strategy for improving...
  2. Female Genital Mutilation: A Human Rights Perspective

    Female Genital Mutilation: A Human Rights Perspective

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) constitutes all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for cultural or non-therapeutic reasons. The practice remains an extremely complex and culturally sensitive...
  3. Conscription and Use of Child Soldiers in Armed Conflicts

    Conscription and Use of Child Soldiers in Armed Conflicts

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    The child soldier issue in Africa is historically unprecedented both in terms of its scope and almost inconceivable levels of abuse of children. The trend is becoming increasingly apparent with non-state armed groups, most of which operate well outside of,...
  4. Exploring the role of cognitive and structural forms of social capital in HIV/AIDS trends in the Kagera region of Tanzania – a grounded theory study

    Exploring the role of cognitive and structural forms of social capital in HIV/AIDS trends in the Kagera region of Tanzania – a grounded theory study

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    The article presents a synthesis of data from three village case studies focusing on how structural and cognitive social capital may have influenced the progression of the HIV epidemic in the Kagera region of Tanzania. Grounded theory was used to...

    Older people living with HIV in Uganda: understanding their experience and needs

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Older adults ageing with HIV in Africa have been largely neglected, despite the distinctive healthcare needs of this population. This article examines the medical care experiences of older Ugandans living with HIV. Data were collected from 40 HIV-positive adults, aged...
  6. Seasonal fluctuations in population size and habitat segregation of Kittlitz's Plover <em>Charadrius pecuarius</em> at Barberspan Bird Sanctuary, North West province, South Africa

    Seasonal fluctuations in population size and habitat segregation of Kittlitz's Plover <em>Charadrius pecuarius</em> at Barberspan Bird Sanctuary, North West province, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Seasonal fluctuations in population size reflect breeding patterns and movements of birds, but distinguishing residents from itinerant birds is difficult with partially migratory species such as Kittlitz's Plover. We determined changes in the size of Kittlitz's Plover populations in two...
  7. Repositioning agricultural development in Africa through appropriate technology transfer

    Repositioning agricultural development in Africa through appropriate technology transfer

    The advancement in agricultural technology frontiers over time has resulted in continuous upward shifts in the production, distribution and consumption of agricultural produce worldwide. Such dramatic shifts in the technology frontier have increased the technology gap between countries and regions...
  8. Application of geographical information system and remote sensing in malaria research and control in South Africa: a review

    Application of geographical information system and remote sensing in malaria research and control in South Africa: a review

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Infectious Diseases
    This paper presents a review of numerous items of published literature on the use of spatial technology for malaria epidemiology in South Africa between 1930 and 2013. In particular, focus is on the use of statistical and mathematical models as...
  9. Foraging behaviour of two rodent species inhabiting a kopje (rocky outcrop) in Tsavo West National Park, Kenya

    Foraging behaviour of two rodent species inhabiting a kopje (rocky outcrop) in Tsavo West National Park, Kenya

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    We employed patch use theory to evaluate how several environmental factors influence the foraging behaviour of two rodent species: Grammomys dolichurus and Acomys cahirinus. Foraging efficiency was determined by measuring the remaining food in artificial food patches (giving-up densities: GUDs)...
  10. Ecological factors affecting the foraging behaviour of <em>Xerus rutilus</em>

    Ecological factors affecting the foraging behaviour of <em>Xerus rutilus</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The African unstriped ground squirrel (Xerus rutilus) is widely dispersed across various habitats in East Africa and hence encounters a diverse suite of predators and plant communities. It is not known how different habitats and plant characteristics affect the foraging...
