  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. Ergonomic Research in South African Forestry

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    After a short reflection on the South African forest industry the article discusses various research projects in ergonomics.
  3. Spatial pattern and variability of soils in a granite landscape, north-east of Nelspruit

    Spatial pattern and variability of soils in a granite landscape, north-east of Nelspruit

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Morphological and selected chemical and granulometric properties of eleven soil profiles occurring on five hillslope sites (midslope, upper footslope, mid-footslope, lower footslope and valley bottom) were determined in order to evaluate the spatial pattern and variability of soils in a...
  4. Spatial pattern and variability of soil and hillslope properties in a granitic landscape 1. Pretoriuskop area

    Spatial pattern and variability of soil and hillslope properties in a granitic landscape 1. Pretoriuskop area

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Characteristics of nine hillslope profiles and selected properties of 69 soil profiles were determined in order to evaluate the spatial pattern and variability of soil and hillslope properties in a granitic area near Pretoriuskop, Kruger National Park. A transect design...
  5. Spatial pattern and variability of soil and hillslope properties in a granitic landscape 2. Pretoria—Johannesburg area

    Spatial pattern and variability of soil and hillslope properties in a granitic landscape 2. Pretoria—Johannesburg area

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Using a transect design, a detailed examination was made of nine hillslopes and 64 soil profiles in the granitic area between Johannesburg and Pretoria to assess the spatial pattern and variability of soil and hillslope properties. The land surface was...
  6. An incomplete block design for reducing competition between inbreds and hybrids in a diallel cross experiment

    An incomplete block design for reducing competition between inbreds and hybrids in a diallel cross experiment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Interplot competition in plant breeding experiments can substantially reduce the efficiency of plant selection. In diallel experiments on outcrossing species such as maize (Zea mays L.), competing stresses might result from differences in vigour between inbred and hybrid entries. A...
  7. Spatial variation of soil and plant properties and its effects on the statistical design of a field experiment

    Spatial variation of soil and plant properties and its effects on the statistical design of a field experiment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The standard procedure in field experimentation is to use a randomized complete block (RCB) design, striving for the most homogeneous conditions as possible among plots in the same block. However, geostatistical concepts dictate that a spatial dependence exists for observations...
  8. Open-top chambers to study air pollution impacts in South Africa. Part I: microclimate in open-top chambers

    Open-top chambers to study air pollution impacts in South Africa. Part I: microclimate in open-top chambers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    South Africa's large industrial growth has created an obvious need to extend, improve and evaluate air pollution impacts on plants in order to assess present-day and future impacts of air pollutants on crop yields. In order to provide guidelines for...
  9. THE EFFECTS OF DESIGN AND OPERATION ON THE EFFICIENCY OF HOSEPIPES AS WATER COLUMN SAMPLERS FOR PHYTOPLANKTON

    THE EFFECTS OF DESIGN AND OPERATION ON THE EFFICIENCY OF HOSEPIPES AS WATER COLUMN SAMPLERS FOR PHYTOPLANKTON

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    The efficiency of 5 different hosepipe samplers in providing representative water column samples was tested by comparing the chlorophyll a concentrations in these samples with those obtained by integrating discrete depth samples collected with a Van Dorn sampler, in two...
  10. Monitoring in a complex world — seeking slow variables, a scaled focus, and speedier learning

    Monitoring in a complex world — seeking slow variables, a scaled focus, and speedier learning

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Recent developments from complex systems theorists provide new insights into our understanding and, hence, monitoring of rangelands. Designing monitoring systems around the slow variables should lead to the generation of information that could greatly improve decision making in an adaptive...
