    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    This study aimed to identify the occurrence and spatial distribution of cetaceans in Mauritanian waters (eastern Atlantic). A geophysical survey was conducted over 92 days between September and December 2012. Over 967 km was surveyed, with 1 017 h of...
  2. A comparison of continuous and rotational grazing on veld at two stocking rates

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Grassland Society of Southern Africa
    Two rotational grazing procedures, a four‐paddock system with a 10‐day period of stay and an eight‐paddock system with a 5‐day period of stay, were compared with continuous grazing on veld. The trial was conducted 40 km south of Bulawayo in...

    Katoengebiede in Suid-Afrika, hoër as 950 m bo seevlak, het 'n kort groeiseisoen indien laat in November geplant word. Die bydrae van groeireguleerders en verbouings praktyke om rypwording van laat geplante katoen te verhaas en die uitwerking daarvan op veselgehalte,...
  4. Impacts of non-selective grazing on cover, composition, and productivity of Nama-karoo grassy shrubland

    Impacts of non-selective grazing on cover, composition, and productivity of Nama-karoo grassy shrubland

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    The non-selective rotational grazing system has undergone a long and controversial development. The merits of this grazing system, where relatively large numbers of livestock are herded into numerous small paddocks for short timespans with long rests between grazings, have not...
  5. Effect of three grazing intensities on selected soil properties in semi‐arid west Texas

    Effect of three grazing intensities on selected soil properties in semi‐arid west Texas

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Soils in the study, carried out in the Texas Trans‐Pecos region, were fine‐loamy, mixed, thermic Aridic Calciustolls; fine‐loamy, mixed, thermic Aridic Ustochrepts; and fine, mixed, thermic Typic Chromusterts. Our primary objective was to determine the effect of three grazing intensities...
  6. Psychometric Properties of the Short Self-Regulation Questionnaire (SSRQ) in a South African Context

    Psychometric Properties of the Short Self-Regulation Questionnaire (SSRQ) in a South African Context

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    Self-regulation (SR), an important construct within the psychological well-being context, involves the ability to monitor behaviour, to contrast it with reference values and to introduce adjustments where necessary. A lack of validated measures of SR in the South African context...

    Quality of life of people living with HIV/AIDS and on highly active antiretroviral therapy in Ethiopia

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    The Amharic version of the Short Form-36 Health Survey (SF-36) was used to measure quality of life among patients on highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) at selected governmental hospitals in central and southern Ethiopia. The study was cross-sectional and used...
  8. Consideration of multispecies interactions in the Antarctic: a preliminary model of the minke whale – blue whale – krill interaction

    Consideration of multispecies interactions in the Antarctic: a preliminary model of the minke whale – blue whale – krill interaction

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    As a first step in investigating the major predator–prey interactions in the Antarctic, a model describing blue whales Balaenoptera musculus, minke whales Balaenoptera acutorostrata and krill Euphausia superba is developed. Blue and minke whales feed mainly on krill, and they...
  9. The presence of right whales in summer on the west coast of South Africa: the evidence from historical records

    The presence of right whales in summer on the west coast of South Africa: the evidence from historical records

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Conventionally, southern right whales Eubalaena australis are portrayed as spending the summer on feeding grounds in the Antarctic and the winter on breeding grounds in coastal waters of the southern continents. Historical whaling records challenge this perception in the case...

    Migration redefined? Seasonality, movements and group composition of humpback whales <em>Megaptera novaeangliae</em> off the west coast of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The migration of Southern Hemisphere humpback whales Megaptera novaeangliae between their feeding and breeding areas has thus far been considered a highly predictable and seasonal event. However, previous observations on the humpbacks that pass through the nearshore waters of the...
