Ultrastructure of the sperm and spermatogenesis of three species of Mytilidae (mollusca, bivalvia)
The mature sperm of three species of the subfamily Mytilinae (Choromytilus meridionalis, Mytilus galloprovincialis, Aulacomya ater) are of the primitive type. The sperm are 50–55 μm long, with a… Expand

The activities of people collecting Upogebia africana for bait at six popular collecting sites in the Knysna Estuary were monitored from February 1995 until April 1996. Three groups of bait… Expand
Consumption and apparent dry matter digestibility of six intertidal macroalgae by Turbo sarmaticus (Mollusca : Vetigastropoda Turbinidae)
Laboratory experiments on feeding of Turbo sarmaticus have shown that this gastropod mollusc is capable of consuming and digesting algae from the Rhodophyta (Gelidium pristoides and Corallina spp.),… Expand
Distribution and abundance of the macrobenthic fauna of the kariega estuary
- A. Hodgson
The Kariega estuary is an open estuary which is about 18 km in length. The freshwater inflow into the estuary is very sporadic and consequently the water is often hypersaline at the head.… Expand
A cladistic phylogeny of the family Patellidae (Mollusca: Gastropoda)
A phylogenetic hypothesis for the patellid limpets is reconstructed by cladistic analysis of morphological characters from 37 species, representing all but one of the living members of the family.… Expand
An estimation of the standing stock and population structure of Upogebia africana (Crustacea: Thalassinidae) in the Knysna Estuary
Within the Knysna Estuary Upogebia africana has an extensive distribution from north of Leisure Isle to the Red Bridge, occupying 62% of the available intertidal zone. Six sites were surveyed within… Expand
