An autecological study of bushbuck and common duiker in relation to forest management.
Frequent reports of damage caused by bushbuck and common duiker browsing on commercially important timber seedlings, and an interest in the potential and feasibility of hunting these ...
The herpetology of south-east Africa.
No abstract available.
Intrinsic and extrinsic influences on African large herbivore assemblages and implications for their conservation.
Understanding the intrinsic and extrinsic influences that affect large herbivore assemblages are important for protected area managers, especially if their current rate of population decline in Africa continues. I aimed ...
Black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) habitat selection and movement analysis.
Many aspects of habitat selection have been largely ignored in conservation planning of large mammals, including variation between day and night movement patterns, inter-individual niche variation of conspecifics and ...
The effects of sexual dimorphism on the movements and foraging ecology of the African elephant.
Large herbivores are key components of terrestrial biomes because of their relative abundance and pronounced influence on ecosystem functioning and habitat structure. To manage and conserve these species effectively, ...
Effects of management intervention on elephant behaviour in small, enclosed populations.
The continual increase in elephant numbers across southern Africa raises concern, though the interventions to manage these populations are more contentious. Within small, enclosed reserves active management is necessary ...
Fleshy-fruited invasive alien plants and frugivores in South Africa.
South Africa is one of the world's most biologically invaded countries and has spent billions of rands on efforts to eradicate alien invasive plants. Chemical and mechanical control methods have varied in success and the ...
Nectar preferences of specialist and occasional avian nectarivores, and their role in the evolution of floral traits.
Our understanding of bird pollination systems has changed dramatically in the last few years. A long-standing paradigm was that hummingbirds and passerine birds select for different nectar properties in flowers ...
