  1. A REVIEW OF THE AQUATIC AVIFAUNA OF THE MHLATHUZE ESTUARY

    A REVIEW OF THE AQUATIC AVIFAUNA OF THE MHLATHUZE ESTUARY

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    This paper is the first published review of the aquatic avifauna of the Mhlathuze Estuary. It also uses a regional approach in order to determine the potential for certain hitherto unrecorded species to occur there. The study shows that there...
  2. Aquatic avifauna of the coastal lakes of the Mhlathuze River system

    Aquatic avifauna of the coastal lakes of the Mhlathuze River system

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    This paper provides the first attempt to bring together all published and unpublished data on the aquatic avifauna of Lakes Mzingazi, Nsezi, Cubhu and Mangeza, situated near Richards Bay in the lower reaches of the Mhlathuze River system. Whilst the...
  3. Research and conservation of the larger parrots of Africa and Madagascar: a review of knowledge gaps and opportunities

    Research and conservation of the larger parrots of Africa and Madagascar: a review of knowledge gaps and opportunities

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Parrot populations in Africa and Madagascar are declining and the need for conservation actions to address threats is increasingly recognised. Effective conservation requires a robust knowledge base on which decisions over appropriate actions can be made, yet at present there...
  4. A comparative analysis of components incorporated in conservation priority assessments: a case study based on South African species of terrestrial mammals

    A comparative analysis of components incorporated in conservation priority assessments: a case study based on South African species of terrestrial mammals

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Assessing the risk of extinction to species forms an essential part of regional conservation initiatives that facilitate the allocation of limited resources for conservation. The present study conducted conservation priority assessments for 221 South African terrestrial mammal species using existing...
  5. West Africa’s Atlantic humpback dolphin (<em>Sousa teuszii</em> ): endemic, enigmatic and soon Endangered?

    West Africa’s Atlantic humpback dolphin (<em>Sousa teuszii</em> ): endemic, enigmatic and soon Endangered?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Atlantic humpback dolphins (Sousa teuszii ) are endemic to nearshore West African waters between Western Sahara and Angola. They are considered Vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature based on restricted geographic range, low abundance and apparent decline...
  6. Indigenous High Forests in the Transvaal with Special Reference to Inventory and Monitoring Systems

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The indigenous forests in the Transvaal comprise a total area of 35 385 ha, of which 18 088 ha or 51% are situated on State forest land. The forests are found mainly along the Drakensberg escarpment and, to a lesser...
  7. Conservation Developments in South African Forestry

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    The historical development of environmental conservational activities within the South African Forestry Industry is followed, and the changing emphasis from the conservation of the remaining indigenous forests (pre-1900) to water conservation, to natural assets and unplanted areas is highlighted. The...
  8. Habitat use by indigenous grazing ungulates in relation to sward structure and veld condition

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The objective of the study was to examine the relationships between the habitat requirements of different wild ungulate species, sward structure and veld condition. Veld condition score was correlated with sward height: habitats with high condition scores were dominated by...
  9. Development of a technique for assessing veld condition in the Kruger National Park using key grass species

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    A technique based on key grass species was developed for assessing veld condition in the Kruger National Park in terms of its potential to produce grass forage for consumption by herbivores and fine fuels for veld burning. Fourteen grass species...
  10. Are multi‐paddock grazing systems economically justifiable?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The financial implications of few‐ and multi‐paddock systems were modelled by a discounted cash flow analysis with the (discounted) present value as the dependent variable, and number of paddocks, farm run‐down time, time horizon and discount rate as the independent...
