The dynamics of social relationships among female Chacma baboons (Papio cynocephalus ursinus) in Zululand.
The focus of this study is the effect of environmental conditions on the social relationships among females in a free-ranging troop of chacma baboons (Papio cynocephalus ursinus), in a southern woodland habitat. The ...
Reproductive behaviour and habitat use in the Blue-Eyed Black Lemur (Eulemur flavifrons, Gray, 1867) at the Sahamalaza-Iles Radama National Park, Madagascar.
The critically endangered blue-eyed black lemur (Eulemur flavifrons) is one the leaststudied day active lemurs because of the recent rediscovery and limited distribution. This thesis examined the habitat use, reproductive ...
Aspects of the biology and population dynamics of freshwater mussels in Lake Kariba and Lake McIlwaine.
Following preliminary observations in 1975 the Lake Kariba Fisheries Research Institute implemented a research program in March 1976 to investigate various aspects of the biology and population dynamics of the mussel ...

The striped-mouse, Rhabdomys pumilio, is widely distributed throughout southern Africa within a variety of habitats and rainfall regimes. It is found at sea level in the Eastern and Western Cape regions and at altitudes ...
Aspects of the thermal physiology and fruit digestion of Knysna (Tauraco Corythaix) and Purple-crested (Gallirex porphyrelophus)
Chapter 2: Avian frugivores have been somewhat poorly studied with regards to the effects that different fruit sugar types and concentrations have on their digestive efficiencies. Digestion of sugars in equicaloric and ...
The behavioural thermoregulation and ecophysiology of the leopard tortoise (Geochelone pardalis) in the Nama-Karoo.
The leopard tortoise (Geochelone pardalis) is the largest of the southern African tortoise species and has a wide distribution range. However, there is a lack of ecological and physiological information about the species, ...
Growth and reproduction in the fruit bat Epomophorus wahlbergi.
This study was carried out on the Natal South Coast between 30° 12' S and 30° 19' S, where 1085 Epomophorous wahlbergii were caught by mist-netting, and a captive breeding colony was kept between June 1977 and February ...
