A review of the successful eradication of feral cats from sub-Antarctic Marion Island, Southern Indian Ocean
This paper reviews the history of the feral cat eradication programme on sub-Antarctic Marion Island based on unpublished minutes of meetings, reports, letters, theses and published scientificExpand
A Lysosomal Storage Disease Induced by Ipomoea Carnea in Goats in Mozambique
A novel plant-induced lysosomal storage disease was observed in goats from a village in Mozambique and revealed predominantly cerebellar lesions characterized by loss of Purkinje neurons and gliosis of thePurkinje cell layer. Expand
Bothriocephalosis in the common carp in the Eastern Transvaal.
The first outbreak of bothriocephalosis in common carp in South Africa is recorded, caused by Bothriocephalus acheilognathi, a pseudophyllid tapeworm not previously identified in this country. Expand
The distribution, diagnoses and estimated economic impact of plant poisonings and mycotoxicoses in South Africa.
The annual total cost of plant poisonings/mycotoxicoses to the livestock industry of South Africa is conservatively estimated at R104 506 077, which does not include hidden losses such as diminished production, reproductive failure, the cost of not utilizing toxic pastures and the fall in price of infested land.

A highly fatal tremorgenic mycotoxicosis of cattle caused by Aspergillus clavatus.
During February 1975, a tremorgenic neurotoxicosis decimated a herd of cattle in the northern Transvaal, and by feeding the suspect ration and its component parts to cattle and sheep, it was possible to identify mouldy sorghum beer residue as the toxic component in the ration. Expand
Observations on the clinical, cardiac and histopathological effects of fluoroacetate in sheep.
The clinical signs, haemodynamic changes, chemical pathology and pathology of acute, subacute and chronically intoxicated cases are described and Tetanic convulsions were seen in acutely intoxicated animals and in them respiratory failure, occurring concomitantly with cardiac failure, may have been the cause of death. Expand
A mycotoxicosis of equidae caused by Fusarium moniliforme sheldon. A preliminary communication.
Tremorgenic neuromycotoxicosis in 2 dogs ascribed to the ingestion of penitrem A and possibly roquefortine in rice contaminated with Penicillium crustosum.
This is the 1st South African case of naturally occurring penitrem A toxicosis and also the 1 first case where quantification of the levels of mycotoxins in dog vomitus is reported and the tremorgenicity of roquefortine and its contribution towards this syndrome, is questioned. Expand
Studies on South African cardiac glycosides. I. Isolation of toxic principles of Homeria glauca (W. & E.) N.E. Br. and observations on their chemical and pharmacological properties.
The clinical signs were nervous in nature: in guinea-pigs a generalized curare-like paralysis resulted in death from respiratory failure while in mice a convulsive syndrome was encountered and the MTC had potent local anaesthetic properties. Expand
