  1. Genomic resources for the spotted ragged-tooth shark <em>Carcharias taurus</em>

    Genomic resources for the spotted ragged-tooth shark <em>Carcharias taurus</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Genomic data can be a useful tool in the management and conservation of biodiversity. Here, we report the development of genomic resources for the spotted ragged-tooth shark Carcharias taurus using genome-wide DNA data from Illumina next-generation sequencing. We explored two...
  2. The Hydrological Effects of a Wildfire in a Eucalypt Afforested Catchment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    A high-intensity wildfire through a humid, upland catchment which was partially afforested to Eucalyptus fastigata, markedly increased stormflows and caused high soil losses off the afforested slopes. Total streamflow yield was unchanged but baseflow was reduced after the fire. The...
  3. Utility of ear plots versus hill and row plots in wheat breeding programmes

    Utility of ear plots versus hill and row plots in wheat breeding programmes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Yield testing in early generations of wheat breeding programmes is limited by large numbers of lines and small amounts of seed. This paper compares yield testing using conventional row plots, hill plots and small single-ear plots. The effects of smaller...
  4. Typifying late-season weather for maize yield prediction

    Typifying late-season weather for maize yield prediction

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Long-term weather data were used to generate typical weather records. By substituting typical weather data for actual late-season weather data it was possible to compute yield predictions using the model CERES-Maize, and compare these with predictions based on full season...
  5. Sex Offender Assessment Procedures: A South African Comparison

    Sex Offender Assessment Procedures: A South African Comparison

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    This study reports on the results of a reflective case analysis of a first generation assessment procedure of a chronic offender. The assessment focused on offender's experiential world and his pathway to crime, including precipitating crime risk factors as well...
  6. A Model for Psychosocial Well-Being of Families in a South African Context

    A Model for Psychosocial Well-Being of Families in a South African Context

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    This study applied the approach of Dickoff, James, and Wiedenbach (1968) to construct a conceptual framework and a model for the psychosocial well-being of families from diverse cultures in a South African context. Findings from previous qualitative research served as...
  7. Inter- and intra-specific variability in morphogenetics and toxin composition of <em>Alexandrium</em> spp. in Irish coastal waters

    Inter- and intra-specific variability in morphogenetics and toxin composition of <em>Alexandrium</em> spp. in Irish coastal waters

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Alexandrium spp. usually occur in low densities during summer along the south and west coasts of Ireland. Field investigations revealed the presence of morphologically similar strains of A. tamarense, A. tamutum and A. minutum. Several strains were cultured, derived through...
  8. Evidence of hybridisation within the genus <em>Chrysoblephus</em> and conserved nuclear sequences of South African sparids (Teleostei: Sparidae)

    Evidence of hybridisation within the genus <em>Chrysoblephus</em> and conserved nuclear sequences of South African sparids (Teleostei: Sparidae)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Several hybridisation events have been recorded in marine fish, yet there is little information for southern African species. Here we present evidence for hybridisation within the genus Chrysoblephus (Sparidae), by analysing a fish caught off KwaZulu-Natal, off the east coast...
  9. A Knowledge Generation System and Innovation Policy for countries of the Customs Union (Belarus, Kazakhstan, Russia)

    A Knowledge Generation System and Innovation Policy for countries of the Customs Union (Belarus, Kazakhstan, Russia)

    This paper considers the problem of forming a Single Economic Area of the Customs Union (Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan) from the perspective of knowledge generation. Based on the commonalities of knowledge generation and the characteristics of the post-Soviet development, there...
  10. “An African way of doing things”: reproducing gender and generation

    “An African way of doing things”: reproducing gender and generation

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Anthropology Southern Africa
    In this article I draw on ethnographic research conducted in the townships of Nyanga East and Khayelitsha, South Africa, to suggest a link between normative ideals about the relations between children and adults, normative practises around the care of children,...
