  1. Assessing the utility of ALOS PALSAR and SPOT 4 to predict timber volumes in even-aged <em>Eucalyptus</em> plantations located in Zululand, South Africa

    Assessing the utility of ALOS PALSAR and SPOT 4 to predict timber volumes in even-aged <em>Eucalyptus</em> plantations located in Zululand, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Forests: a Journal of Forest Science
    In commercial forestry, regular terrestrial enumerations of the growing stock are required for the valuation, sustain-able management and planning of current and future timber supplies. In this study we examined whether the combination of synthetic aperture radar (ALOS PALSAR) and...
  2. Forest structural assessment using remote sensing technologies: an overview of the current state of the art

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Southern Hemisphere Forestry Journal
    The Forestry and Forest Products Research Centre (CSIR), University of KwaZulu-Natal and MONDI Business Paper have recently embarked on a remote sensing cooperative. The primary focus of this cooperative is to explore the potential benefits associated with using remote sensing...
  3. Using Ground Penetrating Radar to investigate spoil layers in rehabilitated minesoils

    Using Ground Penetrating Radar to investigate spoil layers in rehabilitated minesoils

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Opencast coal mining on the Highveld of Mpumalanga involves the disturbance of highly productive soils, which must then be rehabilitated on top of the mined spoil. Various problems in this process may occur, however, which may lead to water-logging, compaction...

    Frugality, Grassroots and Inclusiveness: New Challenges for Mainstream Innovation Theories

    Intriguing and provocative concepts such as frugal innovation, Bottom of the Pyramid (BOP) innovation, empathetic innovation and inclusive innovation are attracting the attention of many scholars in emerging countries as well as raising concern in Western countries. These notions are...
  5. Salinity tolerance of the South African endemic amphipod <em>Grandidierella lignorum</em> (Amphipoda: Aoridae)

    Salinity tolerance of the South African endemic amphipod <em>Grandidierella lignorum</em> (Amphipoda: Aoridae)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The endemic amphipod Grandidierella lignorum is an organism potentially suited to the toxicity testing of coastal water and sediment in South Africa. The ranges of salinity and temperature at which G. lignorum can be used for toxicity testing were investigated...
