  1. Spatial variation in meristic and morphometric characteristics of sardine <em>Sardinops sagax</em> around the coast of southern Africa

    Spatial variation in meristic and morphometric characteristics of sardine <em>Sardinops sagax</em> around the coast of southern Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Spatial variability in phenotypic characteristics within a fish population may be used to infer the existence of multiple stocks, and knowledge of the population structure of exploited species is important for their sustainable management. In this study we investigated geographic...
  2. Biomass production, weed suppression, nitrogen and phosphorus uptake in white oat (<em>Avena sativa</em> L.) and grazing vetch (<em>Vicia dasycarpa</em> L.) cover crop bicultures under an irrigated no-till system

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

    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...
  6. Factors affecting first-month adherence to antiretroviral therapy amongHIV-positive adults in South Africa

    Factors affecting first-month adherence to antiretroviral therapy amongHIV-positive adults in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    This study explores the influence of baseline factors on first-month adherence to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) among adults. The study design involved a review of routinely collected patient information in the CAPRISA AIDS Treatment (CAT) programme, at a rural...
  7. Effect of exposure to cadmium on the tropical freshwater prawn <em>Macrobrachium rosenbergii</em>

    Effect of exposure to cadmium on the tropical freshwater prawn <em>Macrobrachium rosenbergii</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The effect of cadmium (Cd) on mortality, resistance and bioaccumulation in the tropical freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii from Egypt were studied. Survival of prawns exposed to Cd doses over 60 μg l−1 were significantly lower than that of prawns exposed...
  8. The effect of wind direction on flying fish counts

    The effect of wind direction on flying fish counts

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Flying fish and squid flushed by a ship's passage are easy to count, but the value of such data is compromised by uncertainty regarding the proportion of individuals flushed. Wind direction relative to the ship's course plays an important role...
