  1. Reproductive strategy of the Egyptian free-tailed bat, <em>Tadarida aegyptiaca</em>, from a subtropical latitude (25°S) in South Africa

    Reproductive strategy of the Egyptian free-tailed bat, <em>Tadarida aegyptiaca</em>, from a subtropical latitude (25°S) in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Free-tailed bats (Molossidae) are widely distributed in Africa and exhibit considerable reproductive flexibility. The Egyptian free-tailed bat, Tadarida aegyptiaca, is one of the most widespread of the molossids and is therefore an excellent model to study the variation in reproduction...
  2. The status of <em>Sauromys petrophilus</em> and <em>Chaerephon pumilus</em> (Chiroptera: Molossidae) in the Western Cape Province of South Africa

    The status of <em>Sauromys petrophilus</em> and <em>Chaerephon pumilus</em> (Chiroptera: Molossidae) in the Western Cape Province of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Chaerephon pumilus is widespread in tropical and subtropical Africa, with an outlying southern population near the Cape which is based primarily on records of specimens captured at the Algeria Forestry Station (32°22’S, 19°03’E) in South Africa. Sauromys petrophilus, a flat-headed...
  3. Carbohydrate fractions of <em>Themeda triandra</em> (red grass). I. Free sugars and water soluble polysaccharides

    Carbohydrate fractions of <em>Themeda triandra</em> (red grass). I. Free sugars and water soluble polysaccharides

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Sucrose, glucose and fructose were the major free sugars in the leaves, stems and inflorescences of T. triandra, while small quantities of rhamnose, xylose, galactose, mannose, ribose, cellobiose, sedoheptulose and erythrose were also present. Several polysaccharides and components with lower...
  4. Seasonal botanical and chemical composition of sheep and goat diets on a common range in eastern Africa

    Seasonal botanical and chemical composition of sheep and goat diets on a common range in eastern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The botanical and chemical composition, intake and digestibility of local sheep (Ovis aries) and goat (Capra hirtus) diets were evaluated over the wet (growing) and dry (dormant) seasons. Diet botanical composition was related to the vegetation composition on the range...
  5. Factors affecting <em>in sacco</em> dietary degradation by Ankole cattle grazing natural range pastures in Uganda

    Factors affecting <em>in sacco</em> dietary degradation by Ankole cattle grazing natural range pastures in Uganda

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The in sacco disappearance of dietary dry matter after 48h of incubation in the rumen (DMd) was examined for its relationship with seasonal changes in neutral detergent fibre (NDFd), crude protein (CPd), cellulose (CELL), hemicellulose (HCELL), acid detergent lignin (ADLd)...
  6. Group Invariant Solution And Conservation Law for a Steady Laminar Axisymmetric Free Jet

    Group Invariant Solution And Conservation Law for a Steady Laminar Axisymmetric Free Jet

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    A group invariant solution for a steady laminar axisymmetric free jet is derived. The general form of the group invariant solution is first obtained by considering a linear combination of the Lie point symmetry generators of Prandtl's momentum boundary layer...
  7. Abelian Groups with a Minimal Generating Set

    Abelian Groups with a Minimal Generating Set

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    We study the existence of minimal generating sets in Abelian groups. We prove that Abelian groups with minimal generating sets are not closed under quotients, nor under subgroups, nor under in.nite products. We give necessary and su.cient conditions for existence...
  8. Perceptions towards Egyptian Geese at the Steenberg Golf Estate, Cape Town, South Africa

    Perceptions towards Egyptian Geese at the Steenberg Golf Estate, Cape Town, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    The number of Egyptian Geese Alopochen aegyptiaca has increased in the Western Cape province, South Africa, during the past few decades and they are allegedly perceived as a problem on golf courses. However, attitudes towards the geese on golf courses...
  9. Rationing access to public-sector antiretroviral treatment during scale-up in South Africa: implications for equity

    Rationing access to public-sector antiretroviral treatment during scale-up in South Africa: implications for equity

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    As with other large-scale antiretroviral therapy (ART) programmes initiated in developing countries, rationing of ART in South Africa was inevitable in the face of limited human and infrastructural resources. This paper discusses rationing of ART and its implications for equity...
  10. On Categories of Monoids, Comonoids, and Bimonoids

    On Categories of Monoids, Comonoids, and Bimonoids

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Quaestiones Mathematicae
    The categories of monoids, comonoids and bimonoids over a symmetric monoidal category C are investigated. It is shown that all of them are locally presentable provided C's underlying category is. As a consequence numerous functors on and between these categories...
