  1. Resolving the confusion: <em>Amietia vertebralis</em> and <em>A. umbraculata</em> tadpole morphology

    Resolving the confusion: <em>Amietia vertebralis</em> and <em>A. umbraculata</em> tadpole morphology

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Morphological similarities between the tadpoles of Amietia umbraculata and A. vertebralis have led to confusion and incorrect descriptions and identifications in the literature. Based on 33 body measurements and ratios we revised the morphological descriptions of the tadpoles of the...
  2. The effect of long-term fire treatments on invertebrates: results from experimental plots at Cathedral Peak, South Africa

    The effect of long-term fire treatments on invertebrates: results from experimental plots at Cathedral Peak, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    This study examined the impacts of different burning regimes (fire frequency and season) and fire history (time since last burn) on invertebrate morphospecies richness and abundance. The study was carried out in the Brotherton experimental plots at Cathedral Peak in...
  3. Treatment Effects on Annual and Dry Period Streamflow at Cathedral Peak

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Total annual streamflow and dry season flows of treated catchments at Cathedral Peak, Natal, were compared and related to those of index catchments.
  4. Flagships and fragments — perspectives on the conservation of freshwater fishes in southern Africa

    Flagships and fragments — perspectives on the conservation of freshwater fishes in southern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Fishes are relatively conspicuous inhabitants of freshwaters and therefore provide a useful means to monitor and relate aquatic conservation problems to the public. Human attitudes to the conservation of fishes and freshwaters have changed radically over the past 100 years...
  5. Impacts of trout on aquatic macroinvertebrates in three Drakensberg rivers in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Impacts of trout on aquatic macroinvertebrates in three Drakensberg rivers in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Global literature suggests that trout, when introduced as alien species into local streams, have had deleterious impacts on aquatic community structure and function. Prior to defining management actions regarding trout in the rivers of the Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg Park (UDP), data are...
  6. Effect of burn area on invertebrate recolonization in grasslands in the Drakensberg, South Africa

    Effect of burn area on invertebrate recolonization in grasslands in the Drakensberg, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Our study examined the short-term response of grassland invertebrate communities to fire in the South African Drakensberg, in relation to distance from the edge of a burn. We aimed to establish which species survive fire and the dynamics of the...
