Developing key success criteria for rural development initiatives in the context of sustainable land management.
An assessment of service delivery in rural areas is critical in understanding the impacts and extent of sustainable land management (SLM). It has been South Africa’s main objective to improve and speed-up service delivery ...
Segregation, desegregation, and re-segregation and the return to Black Townships : a case study of Chesterville Township, Durban.
Residential segregation and desegregation continues to be a major theme in South African scholarship. However the study of re-segregation, characterised by people returning to legacy apartheid townships after having moved ...
Intertidal salt-marsh foraminifera as sea-level indicators : lessons from the South African coastline.
Microfossils of the group foraminifera are widely used as robust, high-precision sea-level proxy indicators associated with salt marshes. These microfossils exhibit vertical zones related to elevation across the intertidal ...
Relative pollen productivity estimates (PPE) and relevant source area of pollen (RSAP) for key taxa from vegetation communities in Cathedral Peak, KwaZulu-Natal Drakensburg.
Pollen analysis has proved to be an effective method for elucidating and reconstructing past vegetation patterns, and can be effective in attempting to understand the possible future implications of environmental change. ...

Investigating the contribution of the biodiversity stewardship programme in achieving grassland biome conservation in KZN, South Africa.
Research into biodiversity stewardship and its potential as a mechanism for conservation implementation in South Africa is limited. Conservation implementation tools aimed at achieving conservation targets are espoused ...
Motivations to engage in dark tourism : the case of selected sites in South Africa.
The aim of this study was to understand motivations to visit dark tourism sites, particularly, in South Africa and generally internationally. Dark tourism or tourism to places associated with death, pain and suffering is ...

South African commercial plantation forests are established primarily to meet both the local and global demands of industries that require direct raw materials such as pulpwood or timber. Consequently, the commercial forest ...
Integrating remote sensing and geostatistics in mapping Seriphium plumosum (bankrupt bush) invasion.
The impacts of plant species invasion in natural ecosystems have attracted geo-scientific studies globally. Several studies have demonstrated that the effects of invasive species can permanently alter an ecosystem structure ...
