  1. The global currency tango — The relationship between the carry trade, emerging/commodity currencies and risk

    The global currency tango — The relationship between the carry trade, emerging/commodity currencies and risk

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Investment Analysts Journal
    This study has foci on the global drivers of currencies and their relationship to economic jurisdiction in the presence of global risk appetite. We focus on a comprehensive basket of global currencies, deriving three statistically motivated currency market factors. We...
  2. The influence of soil type, soil water content and temperature on atrazine persistence

    The influence of soil type, soil water content and temperature on atrazine persistence

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Montmorillonite clay type soils have been implicated in cases where the excessive persistence of atrazine caused damage to sensitive follow-up crops. A study was conducted to evaluate the influence of temperature and soil water content on the persistence of atrazine...
  3. Variable tolerance of some crop species to atrazine in various soils

    Variable tolerance of some crop species to atrazine in various soils

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The carry-over of atrazine (2-chloro-4-ethylamino-6-isopropylamino-1,3,5-s-triazine), which occasionally causes damage to susceptible crops grown in rotation with atrazine-treated maize (Zea mays L.), calls for a refinement of the specified recropping intervals. Bioassays were conducted in a glasshouse to evaluate, with nine...
  4. Maize cultivars differ in tolerance to imazethapyr

    Maize cultivars differ in tolerance to imazethapyr

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The low tolerance of maize (Zea mays L.) to imazethapyr ((±)-2-[4,5-dihydro-4 methyl-4-(1 -methylethyl)-5-oxo 1H-imidazol-2-yl]-5-ethyl-3-pyridinecarboxylic acid) resulted in extensive crop damage in 1992/93 due to residue carry-over from resistant soybean (Glycine max L.). Pot experiments were conducted to assess the role...
  5. Evaluation of a class of possible simple interim management procedures for the Namibian hake fishery

    Evaluation of a class of possible simple interim management procedures for the Namibian hake fishery

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    During 1997, considerable scientific differences arose about the status of the Namibian hake (Merluccius capensis and M. paradoxus) resource, and as to whether the hake Total Allowable Catch (TAC) should be substantially decreased or increased. These differences revolved primarily around...
  6. Is carry-over of grass biomass between years important in determining savanna fire regimes?

    Is carry-over of grass biomass between years important in determining savanna fire regimes?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    We show that the size of areas burned in three southern African parks is dominated by the amount of rainfall in the immediately preceding summer. Considering mean rainfall from two years previous changes r2 values by <20%. We interpret this...
  7. Shoot and root biomass allocation and competitive hierarchies of four South African grass species on light, soil resources and cutting gradients

    Shoot and root biomass allocation and competitive hierarchies of four South African grass species on light, soil resources and cutting gradients

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    We examined the competitive ability and response to light (shaded or unshaded), nutrients (50% Hoaglands solution or tap water), water (frequent or infrequent watering) and cutting (cut or uncut) of four grass species that differ in their traits, habitat preferences...
  8. A comparison of different planting methods, including hydrogels, and their effect on eucalypt survival and initial growth in South Africa

    A comparison of different planting methods, including hydrogels, and their effect on eucalypt survival and initial growth in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: The Southern African Forestry Journal
    Research to minimize mortality and enhance early growth during the re-establishment of eucalypts includes the use of optimum growing stock and planting techniques, the application of adequate volumes of water at planting (where appropriate), correct fertilizer application and placement, and...
  9. Processes and Functions in Higher Education Students Adjusting to a New Learning Environment: Applying The Mmogo<sup>tm</sup>-Method

    Processes and Functions in Higher Education Students Adjusting to a New Learning Environment: Applying The Mmogo<sup>tm</sup>-Method

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    This article explored the processes and functions amongst a community of students who had to adjust to new social and academic settings. Thirteen university students of a predominantly seTswana ethnic background participated in the study (males = 5, females =...
  10. Expressive Art in Cross-Cultural Group Supervision: Applying the Mmogo-Method™

    Expressive Art in Cross-Cultural Group Supervision: Applying the Mmogo-Method™

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    Academic mobility has increased the tendency of students to study in foreign countries, which poses various personal, interpersonal and contextual challenges to the cross-cultural supervision relationship. This study explored the themes that emerged in a cross-cultural supervision relationship through the...
