  1. Understanding memorable tourism experiences: A case study

    Understanding memorable tourism experiences: A case study

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Research in Hospitality Management
    The desire for new experiences that are truly authentic has become an important mainstream in the tourism industry. The main goal of this empirical case study was twofold: 1) To determine which concept of authenticity in tourism literature is most...
  2. Decline of <em>Terebralia palustris</em> in South African mangroves

    Decline of <em>Terebralia palustris</em> in South African mangroves

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Terebralia palustris (Linnaeus, 1767), the giant mangrove whelk, is a prominent component of mangrove ecosystem malacofauna in the Indo-West-Pacific region. On the east coast of Africa, the range of T. palustris extends from Kenya to the south-eastern region of South...
  3. Plant selection and grazing activity of the invasive snail <em>Theba pisana</em> in coastal Algoa Bay, South Africa

    Plant selection and grazing activity of the invasive snail <em>Theba pisana</em> in coastal Algoa Bay, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The land snail Theba pisana is a coastal species native to the Mediterranean but has been introduced to regions all over the world, including South Africa and Australia, where it is considered a pest. This study examines the diet of...
  4. A review of fiddler crabs (genus <em>Uca</em> Leach, 1814) in South Africa

    A review of fiddler crabs (genus <em>Uca</em> Leach, 1814) in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Fiddler crabs occur globally across tropical and subtropical coastal habitats including mangrove swamps, which are in decline worldwide. The genus has been well-studied in the Americas, Australia and Asia, whereas information on African species is scarce. This review summarises the...
  5. Locating bilharzia transmission sites in South Africa: guidelines for public health personnel

    Locating bilharzia transmission sites in South Africa: guidelines for public health personnel

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Infectious Diseases
    Bilharzia surveillance at local authority level in South Africa relies on public health personnel being able to locate transmission sites. Although several methods have been tried, the method of choice is collecting snails, identifying those that serve as intermediate hosts...
  6. Suspended silt and salinity tolerances of the first zoeal stage of the fiddler crab <em>Uca annulipes</em> (Decapoda: Brachyura) and why marine connectivity is essential to the survival of the species

    Suspended silt and salinity tolerances of the first zoeal stage of the fiddler crab <em>Uca annulipes</em> (Decapoda: Brachyura) and why marine connectivity is essential to the survival of the species

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Fiddler crabs (Uca spp.) undergo the zoeal stage of development in open-ocean waters, where they experience stable salinity levels, low turbidity and reduced predation. The St Lucia estuarine system has undergone many geomorphological changes, both natural and anthropogenic, and the...
  7. Stable isotope analysis of consumer food webs indicates ecosystem recovery following prolonged drought in a subtropical estuarine lake

    Stable isotope analysis of consumer food webs indicates ecosystem recovery following prolonged drought in a subtropical estuarine lake

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Assessing changes in food-web structure provides a useful monitoring tool for gauging the resilience of ecosystems in the face of climatic impacts. We consider the ecological resilience of a large estuarine lake (St Lucia Estuary, South Africa) in the wake...
  8. Using stable isotope analysis to study the diet of <em>Gilchristella aestuaria</em> larvae: preliminary insights into the foodwebs of six South African estuaries

    Using stable isotope analysis to study the diet of <em>Gilchristella aestuaria</em> larvae: preliminary insights into the foodwebs of six South African estuaries

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    South African estuarine systems are becoming increasingly altered by anthropogenic and environmental factors, but the consequences of such changes for these systems are still not fully understood. The most common approach for evaluating the ecological status of aquatic systems is...
  9. Latitudinal gradients and poleward expansion of mangrove ecosystems in South Africa: 50 years after Macnae’s first assessment

    Latitudinal gradients and poleward expansion of mangrove ecosystems in South Africa: 50 years after Macnae’s first assessment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Mangroves occur in South African estuaries at their poleward distribution limits, extending into temperate habitats. In 1963, William Macnae published the first comprehensive assessment of mangrove swamps in South Africa and made firsthand observations of these mangrove ecosystems. This article...
