Three distinct aspects of forgivingness (dispositional forgiveness) have been recently put forward: (a) Lasting resentment; that is,...
  4. Distribution of nutrients, chlorophyll and phytoplankton primary production in relation to hydrographic structures bordering the Benguela-Angolan frontal region

    Distribution of nutrients, chlorophyll and phytoplankton primary production in relation to hydrographic structures bordering the Benguela-Angolan frontal region

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The aim of this study was to determine the characteristic rates of phytoplankton production in water bodies bordering the Benguela-Angolan frontal region and differing in their hydrographic, hydrochemical and biological properties. Two cruises were undertaken in the vicinity of the...
  5. Water-body preferences of dominant calanoid copepod species in the Angola-Benguela frontal zone

    Water-body preferences of dominant calanoid copepod species in the Angola-Benguela frontal zone

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The distribution of five dominant calanoid copepods was related to different water masses in the Angola-Benguela Front system. Five water bodies were identified by principal component analysis, on the basis of abiotic parameter such as temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, phosphate,...
