  1. An evaluation of the empirical basis for grazing management recommendations for rangeland in southern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Analysis of over 50 grazing experiments conducted in southern Africa does not support certain management recommendations. Furthermore, the conclusions of some experiments are questionable owing to poor experimental design or confirmation bias. Based on available evidence, it was concluded that...
  2. Reaction of three veld grasses to different schedules of grazing and resting. 1. Patterns of shoot growth

    Reaction of three veld grasses to different schedules of grazing and resting. 1. Patterns of shoot growth

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Seven defoliation treatments involving grazing at three-weekly intervals with sheep until mid-January or mid- March, or for the whole growing season, at each of two stocking rates, or resting for the whole growing season, were applied on veld during the...
  3. Reaction of three veld grasses to different schedules of grazing and resting. 2. Residual effects on vigour

    Reaction of three veld grasses to different schedules of grazing and resting. 2. Residual effects on vigour

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Seven defoliation treatments involving grazing at intervals with sheep until mid-January or mid-March, or for the whole growing season at each of two stocking intensities, or resting for the whole growing season (control treatment) were applied on veld during the...
  4. Tackling 'the most avoided issue': communal rangeland management in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Tackling 'the most avoided issue': communal rangeland management in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Democratisation in 1994 resulted in a shift in state focus from white commercial farmers to small-scale and subsistence black farmers living in communal areas in South Africa. The LandCare Program of the National Department of Agriculture aimed to improve productivity...
  5. <em>Branchipodopsis</em> species — specialists of ephemeral rock pools

    <em>Branchipodopsis</em> species — specialists of ephemeral rock pools

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The anostracan Branchipodopsis genus is widespread throughout southern Africa and is the second most speciose anostracan taxon in this sub-continent. Branchipodopsis species are particularly dominant in small short-lived and clear rock pools, to the vagaries of which they are extremely...
  6. Effects of temperature and salinity on resting metabolism in two South African rock pool fish: the resident gobiid <em>Caffrogobius caffer</em> and the transient sparid <em>Diplodus sargus capensis</em>

    Effects of temperature and salinity on resting metabolism in two South African rock pool fish: the resident gobiid <em>Caffrogobius caffer</em> and the transient sparid <em>Diplodus sargus capensis</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Intertidal rock pools are inherently dynamic environments that experience marked changes in physico-chemical parameters over diel, tidal and seasonal time scales. Fish that inhabit the intertidal zone can generally be characterized as either permanent residents or transients/visitors. This study investigates...
