  1. Variation in seed rain from <em>Widdringtonia whytei</em> growing in different conditions on Mulanje Mountain in Malawi

    Variation in seed rain from <em>Widdringtonia whytei</em> growing in different conditions on Mulanje Mountain in Malawi

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    Mulanje Mountain is one of the examples of tropical montane landscapes with plant populations varying in size from small fragments of less than 1 ha to riverine strips and stands of more than 100 ha. Seed availability is a potential...
  2. THE BENTHIC MACROINVERTEBRATE FAUNA OF A SOUTH AFRICAN MOUNTAIN STREAM AND ITS RESPONSE TO FIRE

    THE BENTHIC MACROINVERTEBRATE FAUNA OF A SOUTH AFRICAN MOUNTAIN STREAM AND ITS RESPONSE TO FIRE

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    The effects of a late-summer prescribed burn on the temperature and benthic macroinvertebrate fauna of a south-western Cape mountain stream were investigated over a period of 12 months. Temperature and discharge regimes appear well-defined and relatively predictable from year to...
  3. THE PROCESSING OF UNCONFINED, NATURALLY ENTRAINED LEAVES IN TWO LOW-ORDER SOUTHERN AFRICAN MOUNTAIN STREAMS

    THE PROCESSING OF UNCONFINED, NATURALLY ENTRAINED LEAVES IN TWO LOW-ORDER SOUTHERN AFRICAN MOUNTAIN STREAMS

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    Breakdown of unconfined and confined leaves of the riparian tree Brabejum stellatifolium L. was investigated in two low order mountain streams (Window Stream and Langrivier) in the southwestern Cape, South Africa. At both sites, 5000 unconfined leaves were released in...
  4. THE EFFECTS OF TROUT-FARM EFFLUENTS ON BENTHIC INVERTEBRATE COMMUNITY STRUCTURE IN RIVERS IN THE SOUTH-WESTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA

    THE EFFECTS OF TROUT-FARM EFFLUENTS ON BENTHIC INVERTEBRATE COMMUNITY STRUCTURE IN RIVERS IN THE SOUTH-WESTERN CAPE, SOUTH AFRICA

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    The south-western Cape is currently responsible for 45% of the total annual trout production in South Africa and further expansion of this industry in the region is likely. A preliminary survey of seven trout farms situated on the upper reaches...
  5. Habitat selection by large herbivores in relation to fire at the Bontebok National Park (1974–2009): the effects of management changes

    Habitat selection by large herbivores in relation to fire at the Bontebok National Park (1974–2009): the effects of management changes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The Bontebok National Park has long been faced with the dilemma of reconciling the need for short-interval fires, which promote grazing for bontebok, with that for longer-interval fires to maintain plant diversity. We explored habitat selection by various large herbivores...
  6. A comparison of several methods of assessing river condition using benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages

    A comparison of several methods of assessing river condition using benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    This paper attempts to address some of the problems that are faced in the endeavour to minimise the time and financial costs of environmental monitoring. At the same time, it aims to assess the usefulness to freshwater studies of some...
  7. A preliminary assessment of the impact of forest conversion from natural to pine plantation on macroinvertebrate communities in two mountain streams in Zimbabwe

    A preliminary assessment of the impact of forest conversion from natural to pine plantation on macroinvertebrate communities in two mountain streams in Zimbabwe

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    This study presents preliminary data on the influence of forest conversion from natural to pine plantation on benthic macroinvertebrates in streams in the Chimanimani Mountains in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe, a region that has received little attention with respect...
  8. Home ranges of sympatric grey rhebok and mountain reedbuck in a South African highveld grassland

    Home ranges of sympatric grey rhebok and mountain reedbuck in a South African highveld grassland

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    We investigated home ranges of grey rhebok and mountain reedbuck at Sterkfontein Dam Nature Reserve in South Africa. Minimum convex polygon (MCP) and adaptive kernel methods were used to estimate home ranges and core areas for six grey rhebok herds...
  9. The sensitivity of Afromontane tarns in the Maloti-Drakensberg region of South Africa and Lesotho to acidic deposition

    The sensitivity of Afromontane tarns in the Maloti-Drakensberg region of South Africa and Lesotho to acidic deposition

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Despite their remoteness from sources of atmospheric pollutant emissions, the Afromontane tarns in the Maloti-Drakensberg region are perfect candidates to study the negative effects of acidifying atmospheric pollution, because mountain lakes are widely recognised as sentinel ecosystems, unimpacted by direct...
