  1. Transport and transformation of surface water masses across the Mascarene Plateau during the Northeast Monsoon season

    Transport and transformation of surface water masses across the Mascarene Plateau during the Northeast Monsoon season

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The Mascarene Plateau lies in the south-west Indian Ocean between the islands of Mauritius and the Seychelles Bank, and is characterised by a series of shallow banks separated by deep (>1 000 m), narrow channels. The plateau acts as an...
  2. Epipelagic siphonophores off the east coast of South Africa

    Epipelagic siphonophores off the east coast of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    This work represents the first systematic analysis of the common Siphonophora from the Agulhas Current (South-West Indian Ocean). A total of 56 species of siphonophores was collected from a series of three largely epipelagic cruises between Algoa Bay and the...
  3. A demonstration of the hydrographic partition of the Benguela upwelling ecosystem at 26°40'S

    A demonstration of the hydrographic partition of the Benguela upwelling ecosystem at 26°40'S

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Continuous CTD data from a series of recent cruises show that the distribution of the water mass characteristics in the central Benguela region from the Orange River mouth (28°38'S) to alvis Bay (22°57'S) is discontinuous in the central and intermediate...
  4. Confirmed identification of gymnodimine in oysters from the west coast of South Africa by liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry

    Confirmed identification of gymnodimine in oysters from the west coast of South Africa by liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Mussels Choromytilus meridionalis and oysters Crassostrea gigas were suspended from a mooring off Lambert's Bay, South Africa, to study the kinetics of lipophilic phycotoxin accumulation and detoxification. The shellfish were subsequently harvested daily over approximately three weeks and analysed for...
  5. Trophic investigations of Cape fur seals at the easternmost extreme of their distribution

    Trophic investigations of Cape fur seals at the easternmost extreme of their distribution

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The diet of Cape fur seals Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus in the eastern portion of their distribution has received little attention previously, and was studied using traditional methods only. In 2013 we therefore assessed the diet of seals at the easternmost...
  6. Annual cycle of the upper-ocean circulation and properties in the tropical western Indian Ocean

    Annual cycle of the upper-ocean circulation and properties in the tropical western Indian Ocean

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    A regional ocean model was used to simulate the annual cycle of the upper-ocean dynamics and its influence on ocean properties in the tropical western Indian Ocean. Surface winds and heat fluxes from the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)...
  7. Litterfall and Nutrient Release in Mature <em>Pinus radiata</em> in the South-western Cape

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Forestry Journal
    Fast-growing plantations of conifers have replaced areas of mediterranean shrubland in the south-western Cape. This study arises from the need to quantify the impacts of major changes in primary productivity, litterfall, and nutrient cycling in terms of the site utilisation...
  8. THE INVERTEBRATE FAUNA AND BIOTIC INDEX VALUE OF WATER QUALITY OF THE GREAT BERG RIVER, WESTERN CAPE

    THE INVERTEBRATE FAUNA AND BIOTIC INDEX VALUE OF WATER QUALITY OF THE GREAT BERG RIVER, WESTERN CAPE

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of the Limnological Society of Southern Africa
    The invertebrate fauna was sampled at seven localities in the main stream of the Berg River in 1974. These results are discussed and compared with those of Harrison and Elsworth (1958). The results obtained were also used in applying the...
  9. Parasitism of <em>Plutella xylostella</em> (Lepidoptera, Plutellidae): Field and laboratory observations

    Parasitism of <em>Plutella xylostella</em> (Lepidoptera, Plutellidae): Field and laboratory observations

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Investigations carried out at Alice and its rural environs in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa, showed that parasitoids affecting the diamondback moth Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Plutellidae) were Cotesia plutellae, Apanteles eriophyes, Diadegma sp., Diadromus collaris, Oomyzus sokolowskii...
  10. SOIL carbon and nitrogen in five contrasting biomes of South Africa exposed to different land uses

    SOIL carbon and nitrogen in five contrasting biomes of South Africa exposed to different land uses

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Stocks of soil C to a depth of 50 cm in untransformed, indigenous veld ranged from 21 t ha-1 in karoo to 168 t ha-1 in thicket and stocks of N ranged from 3.41 ha-1 in karoo to 12.8 t...
