Two Oceans: A guide to the marine life of southern Africa
TLDR
The guide intends to facilitate the identification of the most common forms of marine life that inhabit southern African coasts, and the most frequently encountered species that live in the intertidal zone and in shallow subtidal waters that can be readily explored by scuba-divers are covered.

ECOLOGICAL CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING CANDIDATE SITES FOR MARINE RESERVES
Several schemes have been developed to help select the locations of marine reserves. All of them combine social, economic, and biological criteria, and few offer any guidance as to how to prioritizeExpand
APPLICATION OF ECOLOGICAL CRITERIA IN SELECTING MARINE RESERVES AND DEVELOPING RESERVE NETWORKS
Marine reserves are being established worldwide in response to a growing recognition of the conservation crisis that is building in the oceans. However, designation of reserves has been largelyExpand
Can we predict the effects of alien species? A case-history of the invasion of South Africa by Mytilus galloprovincialis (Lamarck)
TLDR
Nearly all effects and conditions of this alien mussel, including high productivity on the west coast of South Africa, prevalently strong wave action, a sparsity of predators, an absence of parasites, the mussel's fast growth and high reproductive output, and its possession of a planktotrophic larva were forecasted.

Large scale patterns and trophic structure of southern African rocky shores: the roles of geographic variation and wave exposure
In this study we revise the biogeographic delimitation, and large-scale patterns of community structure of the intertidal rocky shores of southern Africa. We use binary (presence/absence) andExpand
The living shores of Southern Africa
Situated at the tip of the continent, southern Africa has a coastline that has excited marine biologists and oceanographers for generations. Much research has been undertaken and many South AfricanExpand
Rocky intertidal communities
Gradients of intertidal primary productivity around the coast of South Africa and their relationships with consumer biomass
TLDR
The large-scale gradient in intertidal productivity around the coast is strongly linked with grazer biomass and individual body size, but any effect it has on filter-feeder biomass seems subsidiary to the local effects of wave action. Expand
Maintenance of an Exceptional Intertidal Grazer Biomass in South Africa: Subsidy by Subtidal Kelps
TLDR
The main pathways and supply of food necessary to maintain limpet biomasses as high as this are investigated, finding that supplied with a superabundance of food, both species achieve such high packing that primary space becomes their limiting factor. Expand
