    The composition of the soil seedbank and its role in ecosystem dynamics and rehabilitation potential in the arid Tankwa Karoo Region, South Africa<xref ref-type="fn" rid="FN0000"/>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Very few soil seedbank studies have been conducted in South Africa, especially in arid rangelands. Insight into the soil seedbank could therefore improve assessment of rangeland dynamics and enhance rehabilitation efforts. This study aimed to characterise the soil seedbanks in...
  2. Inselbergs persist as islands of diversity in a heavily grazed rangeland mosaic at the nexus of three arid biomes

    Inselbergs persist as islands of diversity in a heavily grazed rangeland mosaic at the nexus of three arid biomes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Inselbergs are regarded as ‘islands of diversity’ due to the high number of plant species present and level of endemism. They also act as natural sources of fodder for livestock and thus risk becoming homogenised in a heavily grazed rangeland...
  3. Temporal and spatial variability in the abundance, biomass and distribution of <em>Palaemon peringueyi</em> (Decapoda: Crustacea) are influenced by biological but not physico-chemical factors in the permanently open Kariega Estuary, South Africa

    Temporal and spatial variability in the abundance, biomass and distribution of <em>Palaemon peringueyi</em> (Decapoda: Crustacea) are influenced by biological but not physico-chemical factors in the permanently open Kariega Estuary, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Biological and physico-chemical factors affecting abundance and biomass of shrimp Palaemon peringueyi were investigated in 2010–2011 in the lower, middle and upper reaches of the freshwater-deprived permanently open Kariega Estuary. Shrimp abundance and biomass ranged from 0 to 88 ind...

    Inferences of social change in Sibiya's novel <em>Bengithi lizokuna</em> (‘I thought it would rain’)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of African Languages
    Literature in sociolinguistics has provided numerous examples of the use of code-switching in natural languages. In this article the author asserts that code-switching has been used in the novel Bengithi lizokuna (‘I thought it would rain’) by N Sibiya, as...
