  1. Soil aggregate stability: The contribution of biological and physical processes

    Soil aggregate stability: The contribution of biological and physical processes

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The roles of fungal growth, soil organic matter and particle re-orientation in soil aggregate stabilization during ageing of two British soils with different cropping histories were studied. Soils were subjected to simulated cultivation, and the subsequent changes in aggregate stability...
  2. Changes in soil aggregate stability during simulated weather cycles

    Changes in soil aggregate stability during simulated weather cycles

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The effects of wetting and drying, and freezing and thawing on the stability of aggregates produced by laboratory manipulation or field tillage were studied on two British soils. Changes in aggregate stability were assessed by turbidimetry, with some information from...
  3. Dry season fish survival in isolated pools and within sand-beds in the Mzingwane River, Zimbabwe

    Dry season fish survival in isolated pools and within sand-beds in the Mzingwane River, Zimbabwe

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Four isolated pools in the otherwise dry Mzingwane River, Zimbabwe, were sampled in December 1985 and a total of 4 547 specimens of 23 species were collected. The dominant species, by number, were Chiloglanis paratus, followed by Barbus toppini, Mesobola...
