  1. Using canonical variate analysis to group small white bean cultivars canned in tomato sauce according to their canning quality

    Using canonical variate analysis to group small white bean cultivars canned in tomato sauce according to their canning quality

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A laboratory-scale canning and evaluation method was employed to evaluate the canning quality of small white beans over cultivars, localities and seasons. Four small white bean cultivars, representing 15 localities from the 2001/02 season and six cultivars representing 17 localities...
  2. A canning quality model for small white bean lines selected for breeding (P<em>haseolus vulgaris</em> L.)

    A canning quality model for small white bean lines selected for breeding (P<em>haseolus vulgaris</em> L.)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The study aimed to validate canonical variate analysis (CVA) model equations for the grouping of small white beans according to canning quality by testing them on four cultivar samples of known canning quality (2000/01 season), and 24 breeding samples that...
  3. Field evaluation of maize inbred lines for resistance to <em>Exserohilum turcicum</em>

    Field evaluation of maize inbred lines for resistance to <em>Exserohilum turcicum</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Nine maize inbred lines with excellent grey leaf spot resistance and good combining ability were evaluated for their reaction to infection by Exserohilum turcicum. The lines were compared to a differential set consisting of Oh43 and B73 (susceptible controls) and...
  4. Biplots for displaying multidimensional financial performance data graphically

    Biplots for displaying multidimensional financial performance data graphically

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Accounting Research
    Invariably financial performance of an enterprise is not judged on a single criterion but is described in terms of various related financial performance indicators. Financial decision makers are thus typically confronted with multidimensional data. This paper demonstrates to financial managers...
  5. Spatial variation in meristic and morphometric characteristics of sardine <em>Sardinops sagax</em> around the coast of southern Africa

    Spatial variation in meristic and morphometric characteristics of sardine <em>Sardinops sagax</em> around the coast of southern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Spatial variability in phenotypic characteristics within a fish population may be used to infer the existence of multiple stocks, and knowledge of the population structure of exploited species is important for their sustainable management. In this study we investigated geographic...
  6. ENVIRONMENTAL CORRELATES OF PLANT SPECIES DISTRIBUTION ON THE NYL RIVER FLOODPLAIN

    ENVIRONMENTAL CORRELATES OF PLANT SPECIES DISTRIBUTION ON THE NYL RIVER FLOODPLAIN

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    The envisaged construction of a dam on a major tributary of the Nyl River will alter the hydrological regime with consequent effects on the structure and functioning of the downstream floodplain ecosystem (Nylsvley). Attempts to minimise this impact will be...
  7. The use of multivariate analysis as a tool to illustrate the influence of environmental variables on phytoplankton composition in the Vaal River, South Africa

    The use of multivariate analysis as a tool to illustrate the influence of environmental variables on phytoplankton composition in the Vaal River, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The highly eutrophic Vaal River system is subjected to algal blooms that cause problems ranging from aesthetically unacceptable conditions to the release of toxins. In order to understand how environmental variables influence one another and to determine the key environmental...
  8. Water quality assessment and application of the biological diatom index in the Kebir-East wadi, Algeria

    Water quality assessment and application of the biological diatom index in the Kebir-East wadi, Algeria

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    A total of 118 benthic diatom taxa were recorded during a survey in 2007 of the Kebir-East wadi, north-eastern Algeria. Fourteen samples were collected at seven sampling stations in winter and summer. The majority of diatom taxa comprised cosmopolitan species...
  9. The effects of soil conditions and grazing strategy on plant species composition in a semi-arid savanna

    The effects of soil conditions and grazing strategy on plant species composition in a semi-arid savanna

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The tree:grass ratio of savannas is important, especially in the semi-arid savannas of South Africa. An increase in tree cover leads to reduced productivity and profitability of rangelands. We investigated the effects of soil type and grazing strategy on the...
  10. Population dynamics of potentially harmful algal blooms in Bizerte Lagoon, Tunisia

    Population dynamics of potentially harmful algal blooms in Bizerte Lagoon, Tunisia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The population dynamics of potentially harmful phytoplankton in the semi-closed, coastal Bizerte Lagoon, Tunisia, in the south-western Mediterranean, were examined from November 2007 to February 2009 at six sampling stations, three situated in areas of mussel and oyster farming. The...
