    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of African Languages
    This article examines how a poem and a painting, which both refer to the wreck of the troopship SS Mendi on 21 February 1917, offer different insights into the way they entered a fractured national memory, culture and history. SEK...
  2. Population dynamics and biology of an invasive population of mosquitofish <em>Gambusia affinis</em> in a temperate estuarine lake system

    Population dynamics and biology of an invasive population of mosquitofish <em>Gambusia affinis</em> in a temperate estuarine lake system

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    This study investigates the distribution, relative abundance, population growth and biology of the alien invasive fish Gambusia affinis in the Wilderness Lakes System, a coastal lake system in the warm-temperate region of South Africa. Fish were collected throughout the system...
  3. The Response of <em>Pinus radiata</em> to Manganese Applications at the Ruitersbos State Forest

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Although ranked as a minor nutritional problem when compared to the serious phosphate shortages in the Cape forest regions, manganese deficiencies are recorded from time to time, and growth losses have been recorded in P. radiata. Species such as P...
  4. The Effect of Afforestation of Indigenous Scrub Forest with <em>Eucalyptus</em> on Streamflow from a Small Catchment in the Transvaal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    A small catchment under indigenous scrub forest on the Westfalia Estate near Tzaneen in the northern Transvaal was treated by first cutting the riverine (riparian) vegetation and subsequently clearing the remainder of the catchment and establishing a Eucalyptus plantation. The...
  5. ‘N Belowende tegniek vir die bepaling van struikbenutting

    ‘N Belowende tegniek vir die bepaling van struikbenutting

    ‘n Moontlike tegniek om die mate van struikbeijutting te bepaal, sonder enige vooraf metings, word uiteengesit. ‘n Hoë korrelasie (r = 0,8563) bestaan tussen lootdeursnit en totale lootmassa (massa van die loot plus blare) van Portulacaria afra. ’n Weidingsproef is...
  6. The evaluation of tropical pasture species in the Transvaal

    The evaluation of tropical pasture species in the Transvaal

    The performance and compatibility of seven tropical legumes grown in association with two grasses were compared over four years at two localities in the Transvaal.
  7. The pattern of the woody species of the nylsvley savanna ecosystem project area

    The pattern of the woody species of the nylsvley savanna ecosystem project area

    A recent survey of the woodyplants in the Naboomspruit area of the Northern Transvaal has bourne out the fact that plants rarely occur at random in an ecosystem. The densities of all the woody species in five localities of Burkea‐Ochna...
  8. Proposed computerized cross‐index system for storage and retrieval of literature references

    Proposed computerized cross‐index system for storage and retrieval of literature references

    Card index systems are normally not very efficient when used for cross‐indexing purposes and information retrieval, useful information frequently being lost because of poor indexing and little or no cross‐referencing. Large card index systems are often compiled by research workers...
  9. The influence of vesicular‐arbuscular mycorrhizas on production and nutrition of white clover

    The influence of vesicular‐arbuscular mycorrhizas on production and nutrition of white clover

    Inoculating white clover seedlings with E3 and Glomus tenuis vesicular‐arbuscular mycorrhizas produced slight increases in dry matter production in unsterilized field plots at Cedara, Natal. Phosphorus levels in plant tops showed no increases due to mycorrhizas but crude protein content...
