  1. Diversity and distribution of seagrasses in the Union of the Comoros

    Diversity and distribution of seagrasses in the Union of the Comoros

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    This study represents the first in situ assessment of seagrasses in the Union of the Comoros. The presence of the following 10 species (ranked in order of abundance) was confirmed: Thalassia hemprichii, Thalassodendron ciliatum, Syringodium isoetifolium, Halodule wrightii, Cymodocea rotundata,...
  2. The ‘suitcase hypothesis’: Can entrainment of meroplankton by eddies provide a pathway for gene flow between Madagascar and KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa?

    The ‘suitcase hypothesis’: Can entrainment of meroplankton by eddies provide a pathway for gene flow between Madagascar and KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Similarities in the marine fauna found off the coasts of southern Madagascar and KwaZulu-Natal Province (KZN), South Africa, led to the development of the ‘suitcase project,’ with the aim of establishing whether eddies that form off southern Madagascar may package...
  3. A new species of electric ray of the genus <em>Narcine</em> Henle, 1834 from the South-Western Indian Ocean (Chondrichthyes: Torpediniformes: Narcinidae)

    A new species of electric ray of the genus <em>Narcine</em> Henle, 1834 from the South-Western Indian Ocean (Chondrichthyes: Torpediniformes: Narcinidae)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    A new species of electric ray of the genus Narcine Henle, 1834 is described from seven specimens collected from two localities off the western coast of Madagascar, in the Moçambique Channel. Narcine insolita, sp. nov. is distinguished from all other...
  4. Status of range and forage research in Mozambique

    Status of range and forage research in Mozambique

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Domestic ruminant production in Mozambique is limited by a long dry season and lack of a well-defined breeding season to match forage supply. To date, research on pasture and forages has concentrated mainly on range vegetation mapping, forage adaptation and...
  5. Effect of cutting height and frequency on <em>Leucaena leucocephala</em> forage and wood production

    Effect of cutting height and frequency on <em>Leucaena leucocephala</em> forage and wood production

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Leucaena leucocephala is a fast‐growing tree that can provide both high quality forage and firewood. The objective of this trial was to determine the optimum height and frequency of cutting for both wood and forage production. Cutting heights at 0.3...
  6. HIV/AIDS patient satisfaction with a food assistance programme in Sofala province, Mozambique

    HIV/AIDS patient satisfaction with a food assistance programme in Sofala province, Mozambique

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Food insecurity is one of the main factors affecting access and adherence to antiretroviral treatment (ART) in middle- and low-income countries. To mitigate this problem, food assistance interventions are being integrated in ART programmes. As evidence of effectiveness of these...
  7. The frequency and effect of shark-inflicted bite injuries to the reef manta ray <em>Manta alfredi</em>

    The frequency and effect of shark-inflicted bite injuries to the reef manta ray <em>Manta alfredi</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Shark bite injuries on reef manta rays Manta alfredi off the coast of Inhambane, Mozambique, were examined over a three-year period (2003–2006). The frequency and seasonality of attacks, the rate of wound healing, and the possible identities of attackers were...
  8. <em>Conus pennaceus</em>: a phylogenetic analysis of the Mozambican molluscan complex

    <em>Conus pennaceus</em>: a phylogenetic analysis of the Mozambican molluscan complex

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The genus Conus has over 500 species and is the most species-rich taxon of marine invertebrates. Based on mitochondrial DNA, this study focuses on the phylogenetics of Conus, particularly the pennaceus complex collected along the Mozambican coast. Phylogenetic trees based...
  9. Biology, fisheries and distribution of <em>Thryssa vitrirostris</em> (Gilchrist &amp; Thompson 1908) and other Engraulidae along the coast of the Sofala Bank, western Indian Ocean

    Biology, fisheries and distribution of <em>Thryssa vitrirostris</em> (Gilchrist &amp; Thompson 1908) and other Engraulidae along the coast of the Sofala Bank, western Indian Ocean

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The Sofala Bank (16°–21° S) forms a major discontinuity in the gradients of engraulid distribution along the south-eastern African coast. Although the number of species declines southwards, the density and the catches of species associated with higher turbidity increases within...
  10. Dugong abundance and distribution in the Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique

    Dugong abundance and distribution in the Bazaruto Archipelago, Mozambique

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Despite the distribution of dugongs Dugong dugon ranging across nearshore waters of the tropical and subtropical regions of the Indian Ocean and western Pacific Ocean, their distribution in the western Indian Ocean is highly fragmented and appears to be declining...
