Indirect effects of habitat disturbance on invasion: nutritious litter from a grazing resistant plant favors alien over native Collembola
Positive correlations between high abundance of H. manubrialis and the abundance and diversity of other species suggest that competitive interactions might underlie low abundance of these other species at the patch level, and interactions among environmental change drivers may lead to unforeseen invasion effects.

Collembola Poduromorpha of South Africa
One new genus and 8 new species of Poduromorpha from a South African subtropical indigenous forest are described. Expand
Community structure of epigaeic ants in a pine plantation and in newly burnt fynbos
The epigaeic ant community was sampled in a firebreak in the summer months following a spring burn, and compared with that in two sites of adjacent, unburnt fynbos. Ants were simultaneously trappedExpand
Termites of a South African savanna
The termite fauna of the South African Savanna Ecosystem Project study area at Nylsvley Reserve, Naboomspruit, northern Transvaal is described, with broadly similar to that of West African savannas, but a little impoverished. Expand
The vegetation of South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland.
The plant genus Strelitzia occurs naturally in the eastern parts of southern Africa. It comprises three arborescent species, known as wild bananas, and two acaulescent species, known as crane flowersExpand
Endemic Collembola, privileged bioindicators of forest management
The need to take endemic species into consideration in studies on the conservation of biodiversity because they are most at risk of extinction is highlighted because semi-natural forests are refuges for endemic species and should be protected. Expand
Springtail diversity in South Africa
Despite their significance in soil ecosystems and their use for investigations of soil ecosystem functioning and in bioindication elsewhere, springtails (Collembola) have not been well investigatedExpand
Biology of the springtails (Insecta--Collembola)
This book discusses interactions between Collembola and the abiotic environment, evolution, systematics, and biogeography, as well as investigating the role of chemicals in the development and life histories of these genera. Expand
Litter decomposition in fynbos vegetation, South Africa
It is indicated that biological decomposition may be more important for carbon and nutrient cycling in fynbos than previously thought and large variation in plant litter quality within vegetation types and biomes suggests that some generalisations about ecosystem processes in the Fynbos may need reevaluation. Expand
Endemism and speciation in a lowland flora from the Cape Floristic Region
An analysis of the frequency of biological traits associated with species with different categories of endemism enabled the establishment of a biological profile of a local endemic: a dwarf to low, non-sprouting shrub with soil stored seeds which are ant-dispersed and/or form a symbiotic relationship with microbes.

Conservation of invertebrate biodiversity on a mountain in a global biodiversity hotspot, Cape Floral Region
Mountains present particular challenges for biodiversity conservation. Table Mountain is a significant mountain in a global biodiversity hotspot, the Cape Floristic Region. It has outstandingExpand
