  1. ZOOPLANKTON AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS IN GROENVLEI, SOUTHERN CAPE, DURING 1976

    ZOOPLANKTON AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS IN GROENVLEI, SOUTHERN CAPE, DURING 1976

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    The zooplankton and environmental conditions in Groenvlei were studied during 1976 as part of an overall ecological study of the zooplankton of the Wilderness Lakes system. The Groenvlei water was found to be well mixed and low in dissolved PO4−P,...
  2. ZOOPLANKTON DISTRIBUTION IN RELATION TO ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS IN THE SWARTVLEI SYSTEM, SOUTHERN CAPE

    ZOOPLANKTON DISTRIBUTION IN RELATION TO ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS IN THE SWARTVLEI SYSTEM, SOUTHERN CAPE

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    Swartvlei is an ectogenic meromictic coastal lake connected to the sea via an estuary which closes periodically due to the formation of a sand bar across its mouth. The inflow of high-salinity water water from the sea into the lake...
  3. ZOOPLANKTON AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS IN A SOUTHERN CAPE COASTAL LAKE SYSTEM

    ZOOPLANKTON AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS IN A SOUTHERN CAPE COASTAL LAKE SYSTEM

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    The usually natural closing and artificial opening of the Tow River mouth to the sea have a major influence on the physico-chemical environmental conditions in the coastal lake system formed by the Tow River, Eilandvlei, Langvlei and Rondevlei, as it...
  4. ZOOPLANKTON AND ESTUARINE RELICT (BENTHIC) FAUNA IN LAKE MZINGAZI, A FRESHWATER COASTAL LAKE OF NATAL

    ZOOPLANKTON AND ESTUARINE RELICT (BENTHIC) FAUNA IN LAKE MZINGAZI, A FRESHWATER COASTAL LAKE OF NATAL

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    Lake Mzingazi, a natural, undisturbed freshwater coastal lake in the heart of the Richards Bay municipal area, is threatened by rapid urban and industrial growth. The previously unrecorded composition and distribution of zooplankton in the lake was studied during 1979...

    ZOOPLANKTON AND ESTUARINE RELICT (BENTHIC) FAUNA IN LAKE MZINGAZI, A FRESHWATER COASTAL LAKE OF NATAL

    Lake Mzingazi, a natural, undisturbed freshwater coastal lake in the heart of the Richards Bay municipal area, is threatened by rapid urban and industrial growth. The previously unrecorded composition and distribution of zooplankton in the lake was studied during 1979...
  6. A review of the ecology and management of temporarily open/closed estuaries in South Africa, with particular emphasis on river flow and mouth state as primary drivers of these systems

    A review of the ecology and management of temporarily open/closed estuaries in South Africa, with particular emphasis on river flow and mouth state as primary drivers of these systems

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Research in South African temporarily open/closed estuaries that includes studies on the hydrodynamics, sediment dynamics, macronutrients, microalgae, macrophytes, zoobenthos, hyperbenthos, zooplankton, ichthyoplankton, fishes and birds is used as a basis to review the ecology and management of this estuary type...
  7. Plankton dynamics associated with the convergence zone of a shear front in the permanently open Kowie Estuary, South Africa

    Plankton dynamics associated with the convergence zone of a shear front in the permanently open Kowie Estuary, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Estuarine frontal systems are thought to play an important role in plankton accumulations in estuaries. However, knowledge surrounding these estuarine circulation patterns is not clear, and consensus regarding the importance of fronts has yet to be reached. A full appraisal...
  8. A REVIEW OF THE ICHTHYOFAUNA OF THE MHLATHUZE ESTUARY

    A REVIEW OF THE ICHTHYOFAUNA OF THE MHLATHUZE ESTUARY

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    The fish fauna of the Mhlathuze estuary was reviewed making reference to surveys dating from 1948 to 1997. The concept of Estuarine Dependence Category was employed to describe species affinities with the marine, estuarine and freshwater environments.
  9. An assessment of the recreational fishery in the St Lucia estuarine system, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    An assessment of the recreational fishery in the St Lucia estuarine system, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    St Lucia is one of the largest estuarine systems in Africa, and attracts thousands of anglers each year. Catchcard data from the National Marine Linefish System for the years 1986–1999 were analysed to determine catch composition, catch per unit effort...
