    A criminogenic profile of a sample of South African high school learners

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    This study investigated the prevalence of criminogenic risk factors among South African high school learners. A sample of 312 high school learners attending a secondary (high) school in the Gauteng province of South Africa were surveyed (55.3% = female). They...

    Sexual and reproductive health risk behaviours among South African university students: results from a representative campus-wide survey

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Among South African university students, HIV prevalence is lower than in age-peers, but at 3.8% it is not negligible. We examined prevalence of factors potentially associated with HIV risk, focusing on partnership characteristics and consistent condom use. We hypothesised that...
  4. HIV risk perception and consistency in condom use among adolescents and young adults in urban Cape Town, South Africa: a cumulative risk analysis

    Risk analysis of wheat production in the central Orange Free State using a growth model

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A wheat crop growth model (Singels, 1983) was refined and used to calculate annual grain yield from weather data for 45 seasons in the Bloemfontein area. Five different levels of profile-available water capacity were used as soil input parameter. Other...
  6. Evaluating different wheat production strategies for the Orange Free State using stochastic dominance techniques and a crop growth model

    Evaluating different wheat production strategies for the Orange Free State using stochastic dominance techniques and a crop growth model

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    A wheat crop growth model and stochastic dominance techniques were used to evaluate several wheat production strategies for the Orange Free State. Fifty seasonal grain yields and corresponding gross margins were calculated from daily weather data and soil data for...
  7. A drought assessment model for Karoo rangeland

    A drought assessment model for Karoo rangeland

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    The KAROO drought assessment model simplifies veld growth responses to rainfall variability by simulation of the growth and dieback of a hypothetical plant species. Soil water content is treated as a simple weighting factor which determines the plant's growth rate...

    Monitoring to detect change on rangelands: physical, social and economic/policy drivers

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Agents that can cause important changes in properties of biological communities are referred to as drivers. Drivers may be classed as physical, social and economic/policy, referring to their origin and mode of action. Physical drivers include environmental (weather, climate) and...
  9. The influence of stocking rate, range condition and rainfall on residual herbage mass in the semiarid savanna of KwaZulu/Natal

    The influence of stocking rate, range condition and rainfall on residual herbage mass in the semiarid savanna of KwaZulu/Natal

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Grazing trials at two sites in the semiarid savanna of KwaZulu‐Natal were stocked with cattle at light (0.17 LSU ha‐1), intermediate (0.23 LSU ha‐1) and heavy (0.30 LSU ha‐1) stocking. Pasture disc meter data collected over 116 three‐week periods were...
