  1. Acute respiratory distress syndrome following a biphasic anaphylactic reaction to morphine: a case report and review of the literature

    Acute respiratory distress syndrome following a biphasic anaphylactic reaction to morphine: a case report and review of the literature

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia
    Background: Biphasic anaphylactic reaction is a variant of the usual and more commonly seen monophasic anaphylactic reaction. However, recently it has been observed that biphasic anaphylactic reaction may not be as uncommon as previously believed. Furthermore, serious and life-threatening complications...
  2. Application of the calcium-calcichrome colour reaction to the spectrophotometric determination of calcium in plant material

    Application of the calcium-calcichrome colour reaction to the spectrophotometric determination of calcium in plant material

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A highly selective spectrophotometric method has been developed for the determination of micro-amounts of calcium in plant material with calcichrome as the colour reagent. The absorption maximum of the complex is at 520 nm. At this wavelength, Beer's law is...
  3. Attempts to obtain Huanglongbing resistant or tolerant sweet orange by embryo rescue from healthy chimeras of diseased citrus fruit

    Attempts to obtain Huanglongbing resistant or tolerant sweet orange by embryo rescue from healthy chimeras of diseased citrus fruit

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Huanglongbing remains a threat in the cooler citrus production areas of South Africa despite restrictions on the movement of citrus material from infected areas, cultural control measures, planting of healthy certified trees and the eradication of infected material. The ultimate...
  4. Identification and distribution of viruses infecting sweet potato (<em>Ipomoea batatas</em> L.) in KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa

    Identification and distribution of viruses infecting sweet potato (<em>Ipomoea batatas</em> L.) in KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A survey to determine occurrence and distribution of viruses infecting sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas (L.) Lam.) was conducted in major sweet potato growing areas in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), South Africa. Eighty-four symptomatic vine samples were collected and graft-inoculated onto universal indicator...
  5. Motor speed and reaction time in HIV/AIDS patients: a case-control study

    Motor speed and reaction time in HIV/AIDS patients: a case-control study

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    HIV infection can produce a range of cognitive and behavioural symptoms that become more frequent and severe as the immune system deteriorates. This case-control study assessed the reaction time and the motor speed of Nigerian Africans with HIV or AIDS...
  6. Abnormal compression wood in <em>Pinus taeda</em>: A review of current knowledge and proposed future strategy

    Abnormal compression wood in <em>Pinus taeda</em>: A review of current knowledge and proposed future strategy

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Abnormal compression wood in P. taeda stands was first discovered in the early 1980s. Since then several research projects and surveys have been carried out in order to develop a better understanding of the problem and to try to find...
  7. Reproductive system and the spermatophoric reaction of the mesopelagic squid <em>Octopoteuthis sicula</em> (Rüppell 1844) (Cephalopoda: Octopoteuthidae) from southern African waters

    Reproductive system and the spermatophoric reaction of the mesopelagic squid <em>Octopoteuthis sicula</em> (Rüppell 1844) (Cephalopoda: Octopoteuthidae) from southern African waters

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Reproductive features of the poorly known oceanic squid Octopoteuthis sicula are described and quantified to gain insight into the reproductive biology of the species. The data are based on 39 complete and partial specimens from southern African waters, collected between...
  8. Phenotypic plasticity and local adaptation in two extreme populations of <em>Acacia karroo</em>

    Phenotypic plasticity and local adaptation in two extreme populations of <em>Acacia karroo</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Phenotypic plasticity is the effect of growth variability in response to different environmental conditions. Adaptive phenotypic plasticity is more specific; it is the ability of a single genotype to produce an array of phenotypes depending on the environmental extent. We...
