  1. 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...
  2. Land use change and its drivers in Kurt Bahir wetland, north-western Ethiopia

    Land use change and its drivers in Kurt Bahir wetland, north-western Ethiopia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The effects of land-use change on ecosystem services in Kurt Bahir wetland were investigated during 2013 to 2014 using LANDSAT satellite images from 1973, 1986, 2002 and 2013 to identify and map changes in land-use classes over time. To understand...
  3. Distribution, Size and Ownership of Forests in the Southern Cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Indigenous forest of the southern Cape as delimited on 1:50 000 maps was analysed for distribution, size and ownership in six landscape zones: mountains, foothill, coastal platform, river valley, coastal scarp and dunes. I tested the hypothesis that forest distribution...
  4. Multiple Resource Utilisation Developments in Mondi Forests

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Defined as the use of available resources other than the planted trees on Mondi's landholdings, the development of various MRU projects is described from 1975 onwards. Projects are differentiated into those that are directly dependant on the presence of planted...
  5. Influence of stocking rate and grazing systems on available grazing in the northern cape<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The influence of rotational and continuous grazing systems, each applied with four stocking rates, on the above‐ground phytomass of veld was determined over four years.
  6. Die ekonomiese implikasies van bosverdigting en bosbeheer soos van toepassing op ‘n speenkalfproduksiestelsel in die doringbosveld van die Molopo‐gebied

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Daar bestaan ‘n dringende behoefte aan ekonomies geregverdigde kostes wat as riglyne kan dien vir bosbeheer in die Molopo‐gebied. In hierdie referaat word so ‘n bedrag beraam.
  7. Grazing of <em>raphanus sativus</em>. L (Japanese Radish)<sup>1</sup>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    The performance of young woolled sheep was markedly better when grazing Japanese radish early in winter, when more leaf was available .Continuous grazing resulted in better performance than rotational or zero grazing.
  8. Optimising stocking rate under commercial and subsistence pastoralism <em>optimisering van veelading by kommersiele en bestaansveeboerdery</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Hopes for a single criterion of overstocking are forlorn. Livestock may be kept for any of many purposes, and the stocking rate optimal for one is not necessarily so for another. Conflicts might be resolved by (1) recognising the likely...
  9. The production, digestibility and chemical composition of five ecotypes of <em>Anthephora pubescens</em> Nees on three soil types

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Production, digestibility of OM and chemical composition of five promising Anthephora pubescens Nees ecotypes (VH4, VH7, VH9, VH17 and VH20) at two fertiliser levels were compared on a soil of the Mangano, Annandale and Sunbury series.
  10. Evaluation of veld potential in east griqualand using beef cattle under two grazing management systems

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Beef production from veld, in the short term, was found to be greater under a continuous grazing system than under a rotational grazing system. Average daily gains decreased from a maximum in late‐spring and the highest three‐year mean value was...
