    The diet of the ragged-tooth shark <em>Carcharias taurus</em> Rafinesque 1810 in the Eastern Cape, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The ragged-tooth shark Carcharias taurus is a large predator of inshore coastal waters in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Born at about 1m long and attaining approximately 3m, stomach content analyses have shown that it feeds largely on teleosts and...
  2. 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...

    Socio-economic aspects of the tiger shark diving industry within the Aliwal Shoal Marine Protected Area, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Understanding socio-economic aspects of the tiger shark Galeocerdo cuvier diving industry, including information on participant expectations, experiences and expenditure, is necessary for the effective management of the Aliwal Shoal Marine Protected Area on the east coast of South Africa. Between...
  4. The effect of particle-size distribution on the suitability of sandy soils for sports fields

    The effect of particle-size distribution on the suitability of sandy soils for sports fields

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The compaction of the topsoil layer of sports fields can modify soil properties such as permeability, resistance to root penetration, aeration and water-holding capacity. The feasibility of predicting these properties from particle size distribution parameters of sandy soils was investigated...
  5. Die oplosbaarheid en mobiliteit van kalk in sand

    Die oplosbaarheid en mobiliteit van kalk in sand

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Die oplosbaarheid, diffusie en loging van twee kalktipes is in 'n suiwer sandmedium bestudeer. Deur van sand gebruik te maak is die kompliserende effek van die uitruilfase van grond geëlimineer. Die uitwerking van byvoegings van KCl, NH4Cl, Na2EDTA, organiese materiaal...
  6. Die invloed van golwende onderliggende paleosols op seisoenale fluktuasies van vrywatervlakke in eoliese sand van die noordwestelike Oranje-Vrystaat

    Die invloed van golwende onderliggende paleosols op seisoenale fluktuasies van vrywatervlakke in eoliese sand van die noordwestelike Oranje-Vrystaat

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Die resultate verkry gedurende hierdie ondersoek dui op akkumulasie van water in holtes van 'n golwende kleierige ondergrond onder oorliggende sand van eoliese oorsprong. Seisoenale veranderings in die diepte van watervlakke is die gevolg van seisoenale verspreidingspatrone van reënval. Die...
  7. Age and growth of the spinner shark <em>Carcharhinus brevipinna</em> (Müller and Henle, 1839) off the KwaZulu-Natal coast, South Africa

    Age and growth of the spinner shark <em>Carcharhinus brevipinna</em> (Müller and Henle, 1839) off the KwaZulu-Natal coast, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Age and growth of the spinner shark Carcharhinus brevipinna off the KwaZulu-Natal coast of South Africa was investigated from vertebral growth ring counts of 67 specimens (54–213 cm precaudal length, PCL). Counts were made from sectioned vertebral centra by two...
  8. SOME OBSERVATIONS ON THE FISH LIFE IN A SEASONAL SAND RIVER

    SOME OBSERVATIONS ON THE FISH LIFE IN A SEASONAL SAND RIVER

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern African Journal of Aquatic Sciences
    Five fish species were collected in a seasonal sand river that had migrated upstream more than 150 km from the permanent Limpopo River. The population structure indicated that mainly juveniles had taken part in this colonisation. No fish were collected...

    Developing a protocol for managing the biophysical condition of a water management area: the Sabie catchment case study

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Recent modification of the South African Water Law spells out fundamental changes for the way the country's water resources will be managed in the future. One of the most significant mandates is the establishment of Catchment Management Agencies (CMAs) and...
