Quaternary fossil fauna from the Luangwa Valley, Zambia
This paper describes a large collection of Quaternary fossil fauna from the Luangwa Rift Valley, Zambia. Stone Age artefacts have been recovered from stratified fluvial contexts, but no in situExpand
The evolution of body size, horn shape and social behaviour in crown Antilopini - an ancestral character state analysis
TLDR
Using a species level phylogeny of this group, the results for the reconstruction of ancestral social organisation of the dwarf species are inconclusive, but the small body size and short horns of Ourebia, Raphicerus, Dorcatragus, and Madoqua are most likely derived traits. Expand
A Fossil History of Southern African Land Mammals
There is an ever-growing wealth of mammalian fossil material being collected from palaeontological and archaeological sites in southern Africa. This reference provides comprehensive information onExpand
TICKS AND TICK-BORNE PATHOGENS FROM WILDLIFE IN THE FREE STATE PROVINCE, SOUTH AFRICA
TLDR
Eight ixodid tick species, associated with 59 free-ranging mammals belonging to 10 species, were collected at five different localities in the Free State Province, South Africa andGene sequences recovered in this study were 98–100% homologous with GenBank sequences for Anaplasma bovis, theileria separata, and Theileria sp.

A Case for Springbok Hunting with Kite-Like Structures in the Northwest Nama Karoo Bioregion of South Africa
In the Levant and some arid zones of Central Asia, desert kites are well-known hunting structures often thought to have been used for the large-scale harvesting of gazelles during the Holocene. UntilExpand
The Holocene
Pollen analysis is frequently used to build climate and environmental histories. A distinct Holocene pollen series exists for Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. This study reports linear modeling andExpand
The Keimoes kite landscape of the trans-Gariep, South Africa
Here we present the recently discovered desert kites of South Africa in terms of landscape-based data derived from LiDAR scanning that enable us to compare the morphometric and topographicExpand
The Utilization of Water Points by Wildlife Species in Nyae Nyae Conservancy, Namibia
Namibia is a semi-arid country and underground water sources have proven to be reliable water sources for drought-prone countries. Underground water has the ability to sustain conservation activitiesExpand
Sexual dimorphism across 3 stages of development in polygynous Artiodactyls is not affected by maternal care
  • G. Dubost
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Current zoology
  • 2016
TLDR
On the whole, postnatal maternal care seems to have no or even an inverse effect on the evolution of dimorphism, which is apparently not consistent with the assumption of greater maternal investment in male than in female offspring among polygynous mammals. Expand
THE INTENSITY OF SEXUAL SELECTION PREDICTS WEAPON SIZE IN MALE BOVIDS
  • J. Bro-Jørgensen
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2007
TLDR
It is shown that male horn length depends on factors proposed to affect the mean mate number per mating male, correlating positively with group size and negatively with male territoriality, which suggests that whereas group size increases the opportunity for sexual selection, territoriality reduces it because territorial males are unable to follow and monopolize female groups as effectively as males in nonterritorial species.

Population genetics of the springbok Antidorcas marsupialis - a preliminary study
Biochemical-genetic variation was studied in springbok Antidorcas m. marsupialis (Zimmermann, 1780) from a large (N>2000) "wild" population (n=24) and a small (30>N>20) isolated farm populationExpand
The vegetation of the S.A. Lombard Nature Reserve and its utilisation by certain antelope
TLDR
All the antelope on this reserve except gemsbok, feed by nibbling the plants here and there, and it was a tedious task to trace the exact feeding spot. Expand
Observations on Social Organization of Springbok, Antidorcas Marsupialis, in the Bontebok National Park, Swellendam
AbstractThe study area of 2 786 ha contained over 200 springbok. The data were gathered during 78 separate day visits over four years. The most important social groups were (1) nursery herds ofExpand
Hygroscopic Food: a Source of Water for Desert Antelopes?
TLDR
I collected plants which were eaten by antelopes during a drought, determined the rate at which the dry leaves gain water at temperatures and humidities measured during the drought, and calculated the amount of water available to the antelope if they feed at night. Expand
Preferential utilization of pans by springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis)
Forage utilization by springbok in pans and surrounding habitats was compared at one karroid shrubland site and two desert grassland sites and was found to be greater in pans than on adjacent plainsExpand
Parasites of South African wildlife. XVI. Helminths of some antelope species from the Eastern and Western Cape Provinces.
TLDR
Nematodirus spathiger had the widest host spectrum and with the exception of black wildebeest, was collected from all the host species examined. Expand
Observations on Territorial Behaviour of Springbok, Antidorcas Marsupialis, in the Bontebok National Park, Swellendam
AbstractSome adult males defended territories of up to 40 ha in size all year round. Most males were seen both alone and with females on their territories. Males did not have permanent harems, sinceExpand
Observations on the migration and habits of the Antelopes of the Kalahari Gemsbok Park - Part II
To follow up the observations made in the Kalahari Gemsbok Park in December, 1957, a second trip was made in June, 1958 on which the present report is based. It is intended mainly as a progressExpand
SPATIAL UTILISATION OF AN ENCLOSED AREA OF THE KAROO BY SPRINGBOKANTIDORCAS MARSUPIALISAND MERINO SHEEPOVIS ARIESDURING DROUGHT
TLDR
Observed inter-specific differences suggest that a combination of springbok and Merino sheep in a 350 ha paddock on a game ranch in the Karoo would lead to a better utilisation of the vegetation. Expand
Energy, water, and food use by springbok antelope (Antidorcas marsupialis) in the Kalahari Desert
TLDR
Results from springbok that did not drink water during the hot, dry season indicate that they can achieve water balance without drinking if they can obtain plant food containing at least 67% water. Expand
