  1. Temporal changes in kelp forest benthic communities following an invasion by the rock lobster <em>Jasus lalandii</em>

    Temporal changes in kelp forest benthic communities following an invasion by the rock lobster <em>Jasus lalandii</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The rock lobster Jasus lalandii expanded its centre of distribution south-eastwards into an area known as ‘East of Cape Hangklip’ on the south-west coast of South Africa in the early 1990s. Using historical and present data, we analysed differences in...
  2. Human-mediated drivers of change — impacts on coastal ecosystems and marine biota of South Africa

    Human-mediated drivers of change — impacts on coastal ecosystems and marine biota of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Coastal ecosystems are highly vulnerable to human-mediated drivers of global change because they are located at the land–ocean interface and often host centres of urbanisation and development. The South African coastline comprises several distinct coastal ecoregions that support a wide...
  3. Spatial characterisation of the Benguela ecosystem for ecosystem-based management

    Spatial characterisation of the Benguela ecosystem for ecosystem-based management

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The three countries of the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem (BCLME), namely Angola, Namibia and South Africa, have committed to implementing ecosystem-based management (EBM) including an ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) in the region, to put in practice the principles...
  4. Kelp forests in False Bay: urchins vs macroalgae in South Africa’s southwest coast biogeographical transition zone

    Kelp forests in False Bay: urchins vs macroalgae in South Africa’s southwest coast biogeographical transition zone

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Kelp forests along South Africa's southwest coast occur in a region of biogeographical overlap. Commonly referred to as transition-zone kelp forests, these dynamic ecosystems are particularly susceptible to grazing from species such as urchins. This study explores relationships between urchins...
